Theatre Quiz: Can you complete the song titles with images?

We LOVE a London musical. From the ones which make you laugh to the ones which make you cry – and then there’re those which somehow manage both simultaneously – there’s so much choice and variety. And within them lie some unforgettable numbers, packed with songs and scenes you can visualise in your sleep.

But everybody tends to have slightly different memories of them – different pictures in our heads of what the songs of London musicals actually represent. So this week’s Theatre Quiz celebrates the songs of the shows in Theatreland – in abstract image form!

All you have to do is complete the title of each song. Each song is a well-known tune from a London musical (hint: they’re all currently running – so check out our London Theatre Tickets page for inspiration)! To complete the titles, simply select the image which best applies to the missing word… but be warned: that application could be a little… abstract.

Good luck – and as ever, let us know how you did on Facebook and Twitter!
