Juke Box Musicals.

In this research I plan to find out what a Jukebox musical is and examples of some of the shows that are in the style of a jukebox musical.

By definition a Jukebox musical is “is a stage or film musical that uses previously released popular songs as its musical score. Usually the songs have in common a connection with a particular popular musician or group — because they were either written by, or for, the artists in question, or at least covered by them.”  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jukebox_musical

Our performance of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ is in this style of a musical as it is not originally a musical it is infact a stright play written by William Shakespeare in  1595 or 1596 when Shakespeare was 31-32 years of age.

Examples of Jukebox musicals are, Mamma Mia, Let it be, Rock of Ages, Viva Forever, Green Days American Idiot and the boy form Oz. These are just a few out of many.
