It’s the film that got us all scribbling “gigantic piano” at the top of our childhood Christmas wishlists. And now, Big The Musical is set to make its West End premiere, as it arrives at the Dominion Theatre this Christmas!
Now, if there’s one thing London theatregoers love, it’s the chance to see their favourite stories reinvented on the stage… and if there’s another, it’s a crossover between a film and a stage musical: an awesome movie-musical, if you will.
And so, to honour this Big news, we’ve updated an old favourite Theatre Quiz: 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: BG -> Big!
