Theatre Spot Test: How many Wicked songs can you name?

By Robin Johnson Published 27 July 2018

Unlimited. Our weekend is unlimited… well, until Monday, that is. But such is the brilliance of the world-class West End musical Wicked, a quick listen to the soundtrack has got us dreaming green and beaming with a smile that’ll carry right through the weekend.

And with the new Wicked cast starting this week, we’re bringing back one of our favourite Theatre Spot Tests from the archive, all about the Apollo Victoria Theatre show with stunning spectacle, heartwarming story and unforgettable songs. It’s the kind of show that, when in the West End, you have to see at least one (or, in some fans’ cases, fifty) times!

So to honour a modern London theatre classic, we’ve devised this week’s Theatre Spot Test: we give you one teaser lyric per song, and, from there, it’s up to you to name as many of composer and lyricist Stephen Schwartz’s musical theatre tunes as you can.

And to make it a truly Wicked challenge, we’ve only given you 8 minutes – so get typing! Song titles are taken from the original Broadway cast recording from 2003, and, if completing the quiz gives you the itch, you can book your Wicked tickets right here.

As ever: good luck, and let us know how you did!

Wicked is also participating in Kids Week; throughout August, a child aged 16 or under can go free when accompanied by an adult paying full price. Adults can also purchase up to two extra children’s tickets at half price, and there are no booking fees to pay.
