Novels, plays, short stories, poetry – even a comic strip – the stories for great musicals have been plundered from all different genres of writing. This quiz gets you to simply match up the author of the original source with the musical that evolved from his/her writing.
It’s part two of our authors of the musicals quiz, and don’t forget we’re looking for the author of the source work, not the playwright. Below are eighteen authors, match them up to the musical they inspired and let us know how you did in the comments. If you missed part one, you’ll find it beneath this quiz.
