Better late than never - it's Quiztime again!

Some answers will need a little investigation but you all have Google at your fingertips. Points will be awarded according to the points you earn, and in case there is a tie, we have a final tie-breaker question to push someone to the winning post. 
† 
There's an extra incentive - you could win a £20 theatre token 
to spend with us this year. 
† 
Switch off Netflix, put your thinking-cap on, and begin remembering what was another full year for our Group visiting London's theatres.We don't expect you to know all the answers but have a go at as many questions as you can, then send us your entry. Maybe the winner will be like Mike and not fill in all the answers. 
† 
Answers must be forwarded to us no later than Tuesday 18 February and we shall announce a winner as soon as possible after that. 
† 
Enjoy!

Fredo and Mike
