Season four is on the way! But in the meantime, we pulled in some musical enthusiast friends for a special episode of trivia and games all about the world of music theatre.

Adam, Sean, and Gabi will face an unusual My Champion challenge, wrestle with some rewritten “I Want” songs, and really rack up the points in an old fashioned audio round of “Name That Musical.” Some high scoring lightning rounds make this one a real barn burner!

This recording had TOO much bonus content to fit into one episode. So this Friday, our Patreon subscribers will hear a couple just-for-fun bonus rounds that we also ran down with our players. Interested in MORE musicals trivia? Join up at patreon.com/usaquizshow.

In it, Mr. Fischoeder and Gayle (voiced by Kevin Kilne and Megan Mullally) do the singing for the two main characters from off stage for the big song "Electric Love."
