Fun quiz. I'm guessing that you are thinking mainly of musicals for which there are movie versions? Even so, there are some big shows missing here, including (in no particular order), Wicked, Avenue Q, On the Town, Candide, Sunday in the Park with George, Company, Dreamgirls, Into the Woods, Man of La Mancha, Light in the Piazza, and so on. Other suggestions might include Hamilton and La Cage aux Folles.

Well, I bow to your expertise and suggestions, which have now been added. Some I havent heard of, but I am not an expert! Hope you enjoy, and I have added some extra time.

Nice Quiz! I'd have added The Book of Mormon too but lots of my favourites here.

Nitpick/fun fact - there's a typo on Technicolor in the Joseph title. It's a British musical but Technicolor is an American trademark so colour is never spelled with a u.

(Technicolor wanted royalties from the use of the name at first until Lloyd Webber and Rice said they would just use the name of a rival film brand. Technicolor figured it's basically free advertising so granted them permission to use it.)

Please fix the spelling of "La Cage aux Folles" and "For me and my gal" should be FMAMG not FNANG.
