    Based on personal experience, I’d definitely say the Kiss Me “Quartet” is harder than “Kiss Me.” But the whole Sweeney score is a beast. I’d also add most any song from “Little Women” (there are SO many words stuffed into every bar).

    And since the list also includes shows that haven’t played Broadway: “Lost in the Wilderness” from Children of Eden should definitely rank here. There was a time where seemingly every tenor was attempting this at auditions. I cannot tell you how many botched versions I’ve heard. It’s hard hell.
