So you’re confident you’ve named all 15 musicals from just the first line? Here are the answers:
1. The Phantom of the Opera
3. Little Shop of Horrors
4. My Fair Lady
7. Mary Poppins
11. Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
15. The Lion King (please tell us you got this one right)
How’d you do?
12-15: You’re defying gravity! Nice work, Elphaba.
8-11: You may not be Mathilda, but you’re pretty dang smart.
4-7: Well, Hamilton, you might have thrown away a few shots, but no one can say you didn’t try.
0-3: Let’s just say if it came down to proving your knowledge of musical theatre or getting eaten by a man-eating plant, you’d end up somewhere that’s green.
