Top Musical Summer Sizzlers

Published August 11, 2017

The sunshine is here at last and, while this week hasn’t always been the “best behaved” weather-wise – in quintessentially British summer spirit, there’ve been fewer picnics on the display in the park than sturdy waterproofs – we’ve still got a summer to prepare for.

So with the heat dialling up, we’ve put together the perfect playlist for the balmy days ahead. Our carefully selected songs will take you from the boiling el barrio of In The Heights to the searing Savannah of Disney’s The Lion King, with showstoppers from the likes of Hamilton, Evita, Kinky Boots, Mamma Mia! and Miss Saigon along the way.

Pour yourself a nice cold drink, kick back under a parasol, and chill out to these classic musical summer sizzlers.
