music: Title: Sans te le dire * Artist: Bruno Pelletier

Musical Theatre Meme

You say you LOVE Musical Theater/Broadway, let’s see how much. Next to each show put one of the following....

* (X) If you have heard of the show
* (CD) If you own/listen to the CD
* (SEEN) If you have seen the show (Professional, Civil Lights, Community Theater, etc) If you’ve seen it more than once write the number after SEEN
* (“Your Part”) If you have been in it (put your particular part)

Leave it BLANK if none of the options apply...

Here we go. Let’s see how much you really love Musical Theater/Broadway.

Be HONEST. Not very many people have ever heard of the show “Flora the Red Menace.” Don’t get down to the results and see you’re only 5 away from being a “Musical Theater Master” and change a few of your answers! Just own up, and if you want, make yourself more knowledgeable. Go listen to the ones you haven’t heard of...

There are, for the record, a lot of musicals missing from this list:

School House Rock: Live!
Jane Eyre
The Boyfriend
Red, Hot and Blue
Crazy for You
Can Can
Good News
Urban Cowboy
Never Gonna Dance
Martin Guerre
Romeo & Juliet
The Boys from Syracuse
Hello, Dolly!

I'm giving myself an A+ (earned it anyway, but since I can add more musicals to the list (and I limited myself to musicals I'd actually seen or been in or had friends work on in my additions) than points one is allowed to miss, I give myself an effectively perfect score.

See scoring
Now count the number of answers you left blank to find your grade:
... Missed

0-9 ----A+---- Your are the Musical Theater Master!!! We all Bow down to you!!!!

10-22 ----A---- Great!!! You really know your stuff! Now you’ll go and listen to the one’s you didn’t mark to find out what you’re missing… Don’t deny it, you know you were going to do that even before you got down to the results!

23-34 ----B---- Pretty Good!!! You are on your way up to being a bonifide Musical Theater know-it-all, now go out and see what you’re missing!

35-46 ----C---- Average. You know of Musical Theater, but perhaps it’s not your specialty. If you want to become a Master, just go and look into the shows you didn’t check off, most of them are worth looking into.

47-58 ----D---- Boo!!! Go look into the shows you don’t know!! I know you mean well, but really, the “Popular” shows aren’t the only ones out there! Go look into some of the less-popular ones, you won’t regret it.

59 and Over----F!---- Why did you take this Quiz? Were you bored? Have you ever even heard of Showtunes?! It’s ok. Go to Yahoo music and listen to a few soundtracks you may like what you hear.

Re-post with your grade and see what your theater buddies score.
