* The musical adaptation of ''Literature/LittleWomen'' has "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFQgkMlVkVw A Small Umbrella in the Rain]]", which has to be one of the most charming, adorable {{Final Love Duet}}s in all of musical theatre. It just perfectly encapsulates the whole of Jo and Bhaer's relationship.
