Hey yall, so I'm working on a show that incorporates songs from other musicals, and I really need a story for this one character to sing. I need a song that is about people sharing stories with them or something to do with bringing people together. Any ideas???

Maybe one of these fits:

Every Story (Aida)

The Story goes on (Baby)

Storybook (Scarlet Pimpernel)

Be the Hero (Big Fish)

Fight the Dragons (Big Fish)

Bookseller in the Rain (December Songs)

Magic to do (Pippin)

These songs are stories from the character's life that they share with other people in the show, if that's what you're looking for:

"I'll be here" from Ordinary Days

"Mister Choi and Madam G" from Elegies

"Mark's all-male Thanksgiving" from Elegies

"Cut you a piece" from 35mm

There's also another "Butterfly," and a Kander and Ebb beauty: from ZORBA.
