Musical theatre is an inherent part of popular culture. From annual television viewings of The Sound of Music to dancing in the aisles at Mamma Mia!, musicals are indisputably popular across the globe. As the twenty-first century steps into full swing, musical theatre seems persistent in cannibalising popular culture in a way previously unthinkable. In referencing blockbuster movies, popular music, television shows, current events or the latest YouTube trend, musicals regurgitate popular culture live on stage; an epidemic, as many cynical critics have described, which continues to perpetuate musical theatre’s central position within popular culture.
