Theatre Spot Test: Name the inspirational musicals

By Robin Johnson, Published November 3, 2017

Who doesn’t love that feelgood sensation of coming out a brilliant West End musical – energised, thrilled, cheered, and ready to take on the world?

And with the news that Mamma Mia! is extending until October 2018, further Hamilton tickets have been released, and Little Shop Of Horrors is returning to London next year, it’s certainly been a brilliant week to be a musical theatre fan.

Sometimes, just one lyric is enough; one little snippet to remind you that today is the day you’ll conquer everything you set out to do.

Which brings us nicely onto this week’s Theatre Spot Test: we’ve given you a line from a showstopping song from the pantheon of West End and Broadway musicals which have sent audiences jumping to their feet at the curtain call. We’d like you to name not the song, but the actual musical, they’re from. This may be harder than it sounds.

So get your weekend off to the start it deserves and enjoy some inspirational musical lyrics – you’ve 8 minutes on the clock! And make sure to let us know how you got on.
