Showtime!

'There’s no business like show business, like no business I know! Everything about it is appealing. Everything that traffic will allow. Nowhere can you get that happy feeling – when you are stealing – that extra bow.' Are you tapping your foot and, perhaps, singing?! You know, there isn’t a single person in show business today who does not know these famous lyrics that were written by Irving Berlin back in 1946. They emphasize the thrill of being in show business and being on Broadway. So, this Spanish Difficult Review picture quiz will be preparing you for the time when the curtain goes up, also known as showtime!
