* "From This Moment On" was cut from ''Out of This World'' before the show reached Broadway; ColePorter was not pleased. However, by the time the song was reused in the movie of ''Theatre/KissMeKate'', it had already become a hit.

* Judge Turpin's "Johanna" (not a reprise of the earlier "Johanna") in ''Theatre/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'' is routinely cut from most productions (including the original 1979 Broadway production (though it can be found on the cast recording), the 1984 taped peformance and the 2007 movie), due to its high {{Squick}} rating. Additionally, "Parlour Songs" is either cut or abridged in most productions (usually leaving out "Tower of Bray"), an additional Contest segment (The Toothpulling Contest) is almost always cut, and "The Beggar Woman's Lullaby", added for the London revival, is sometimes cut as well.

** "The Amazing Tale of Willy Wonka" was replaced with "Willy Wonka! Willy Wonka!" Another song, "Tales of Wonka", was initially supposed to substitute for the former number but was cut in previews in favor of the shorter "Charlie, You and I".

* 2013's ''Theatre/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' has an unusual case of a CutSong being reinstated in the ''rehearsal'' stage -- "It Must Be Believed to Be Seen" was the first song Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman wrote to serve as Willy Wonka's introductory number and the Act One finale, but was cut in favor of a "bigger" song (title unknown). Once the show reached the rehearsal stage, actor Douglas Hodge regarded the new song as too bombastic and scary, so Shaiman and Wittman -- who had their own doubts about it by then -- played "It Must Be Believed to Be Seen" for him. With further tweaking it was back in the show.

* Two songs were cut from ''Theatre/{{Spamalot}}'' during its debut in Chicago. The first was during the scene in the Witch Village, which included a torch song called "Burn Her!" and was originally performed by Sir Bedevere, The Witch, Sir Robin, Lancelot and Villagers. At the French Castle, "The Cow Song", a parody of a stereotypical film noir/cabaret style, was performed by The Cow and French Citizens. Incidentally, in both songs, Sara Ramirez, the first actress to play the Lady of the Lake, sung the lead vocals. This resulted in her having six songs in Act One, but no further appearances until scene five in Act Two, for "The Diva's Lament".
