Theatre Spot Test: Name the classic movie-musicals

Published 17 August 2018

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again has got us all bursting out of cinemas this Summer, belting pop tunes and itching to see the original stage show live again at the Novello Theatre.

A worldwide hit in all forms, the ABBA-licious story is one of several current shows which audiences may well have first have encountered on film – after all, the 2008 movie did star the likes of Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan and Julie Walters, amongst many others. And if there’s one thing all theatregoers love, it’s an awesome movie-musical.

And so, we’re bringing back this week’s Theatre Spot Test: all the stage musicals in our list below are also well known musical movies. Some went from stage to screen, and others from screen to stage. All of them are classics. And all you have to do: name them.

*cough*  but the titles may be missing vowels *cough*

All you have to do is fill in the blanks, for example: DRMGRLS -> Dreamgirls.

You’ve only got 3 minutes on the clock – GD LCK!
