Solo Musical Songs Outside of the Protagonist

It is pretty amazing how many kinds of musical theatre songs there are. You have the ensemble ones, the duets, and the solos- as in the main ones. The solos, especially, make you get to know the characters, and those usually are sung by major characters. Now, I decided to list the solos NOT meant for the meant for the main character. Meaning I will not leave out antagonist songs (one character I view as the antagonist is probably an unpopular opinion).

The Songs

  1. Empty Chairs at Empty Tables
  2. On My Own
  3. I Dreamed a Dream
  4. Stars
  5. Javert’s Soliloquy
  6. Music of the Night
  7. All I Ask of You (Reprise)
  8. If I Can’t Love Her
  9. As Long as He Needs Me
  10. My Petersburg

*Yes, I view the Phantom as the antagonist in his musical*

What other non-protagonist solo songs can you think of?
