Warm up for 2019 with these new musicals’ cast recordings

The Broadway cast of Dear Evan Hansen

From the returning queens of Six to eagerly awaiting Broadway transfers from the likes of Dear Evan Hansen and Come From Away, there are lots of new musicals arriving in London this year which are causing more than a little bit of excitement.

So make sure you’re fully prepared for Jenna, Evan, the town of Gander and everyone else that’s turning up on West End’s doorstep later this year by listening to the cast soundtracks. If you don’t start singing along within seconds of each song, then…well you should probably just listen to it more.

It’s always nice when someone’s hard work gets rewarded, and the Queen has obviously been seriously impressed with Theatreland recently, as she’s handed out MBEs, CBEs and even knighthoods to our favourite stage superstars.

As we enter a new numerical year (that we keep forgetting we’re in), it’s time to test your knowledge of numbers in musical numbers. You’ve only got one shot for these 25 questions, so don’t waste a single minute!
