Theatre quiz: Musical lyrics by numbers

Robin Johnson

By Robin Johnson Published 19 April 2019

2019. Two thousand and nineteen. Twenty nineteen…. yep, we’re finally used to writing it. It’s only taken us 4 months to stop accidentally portraying ourselves as time travellers, and here we are. But while we’ve been practising our numbers, we put together this something to test yours – in our musical-themed Theatre Quiz!

Yes, the Theatre Quiz is back this week, and it’s more theatre-y and… er… quizzical (?) than ever before! And seeing as we’ve got a whole selection of exciting brand new musicals opening up at the moment (you can get suitably excited right here), we’ve come up with this latest humdinger of a quiz.

The game is simple: we’ve left some blanks in some London musicals’ lyrics – some well-known, some considerably less so. All you have to do is select the correct number to fill them in – but be warned, as you only get one shot at each question, and there are some tricky ones in there…

You’ve got 5 minutes. And be warned: like writing “2019” for the first few months of the year, this one’s not easy…

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