Quiz Description

Answer the following about stories that started out as films before moving to the musical stage. While most films and musicals have the same name, there are a couple questions that will ask you for one or the other. When you are asked for either name, you can be assured that they both have the same title (Even though you will be asked to name the musical). While some of these musicals may be based on original books or plays, in all of these cases, significant material was based on the intervening film. Oh, and of course, potential spoiler alerts.
