Musical Theatre Characters Who Sing Heartbreaking Songs

This post sounds interesting. I have written posts where I listed heartbreaking songs. This time, I decided to write a list of characters who do sing heartbreaking songs. Some of the characters are tragic characters while other are not. I will next to them list some of the heartbreaking songs they sing. They will not necessarily be in the order in which I love the characters.

SPOILERS AHEAD:

Elphaba- I’m Not That Girl

Glinda- I’m Not That Girl (Reprise)

Beast- Evermore ( live action movie), If I Can’t Love Her/ If I Can’t Love Her (Reprise)

Christine- Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again

Eponine- On My Own, A Little Fall of Rain

Marius- Empty Chairs at Empty Tables, A Little Fall of Rain, Drink With Me, Epilogue

Emelie- This Nearly Was Mine

Valjean- Come to Me, Bring Him Home, Epilogue
