I really liked this meme. :)

(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…


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…Now the Quiz.

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


There were 7 that I had never heard of before in my life. I was still able to score an A+ -- Woo hoo! :)

You are but a grasshopper...
... but I've got about 35 years on you, so you will catch me, I've no doubt :)

ACK!! You never heard of FLORA THE RED MENACE!?? It's early Kander and Ebb, Lisa Minelli's first starring role, and it has one of the most beautiful ballads ever written: "A Quiet Thing."

Re: You are but a grasshopper...
*Bows down to the theatre master* I will never catch up with you, Linda!! :) :)

Nope, I've never heard of "Flora the Red Menace!" Maybe MTG should do a reading of it one day! :)

BTW, how was Julie last night???

YOUVE NEVER SEEN PHANTOM OF THE OPERA???? *falls over*

*hangs head in shame* Nope, I've never seen "Phantom of the Opera," the closest that I came was buying tickets to see "Phantom" (the Yeston/Kopit version) in Riverside a few years ago (but I never went.)
