    Musicals at the movies a quiz.

    Something a bit different for a change

    No use of Google, Bing or any other online search engines, no use of Wikipedia or any other online encyclopedias or dictionaries.
    Friends, family and pets may help.

    *** Because this quiz is about musicals in the cinema use of YouTube to overtly search for answers is frowned upon (just don't do it) though if you are a YouTube user and it serendipitously pops up a suggestion in the side bar or in a list of recommended videos that happens to be the answer to a question then that is okay (you got lucky) main thing is you have fun and let common sense prevail.

    Please do NOT post answers/spoilers/hints etc.

    Please pm (private message) me (OldMike) your answers.

    Closing date TBA.
