Given the high response to Urinetown and the fact that NYCC is including it in their line-up, I hope that means we'll have a revival soon!

GYPSY almost tied with BEETLEJUICE?  Oyy!!

Seems like there are a lot of tweens voting and skewing the results.

I would think we would collectively rally behind She Loves Me, but here we are.

So we're still voting for the show that we like best, so it can win Silver, essentially?

Please let it be Follies or Gypsy or something. I mean...Mean Girls, really?

Can anyone explain how the shows are paired up? I mean, bummer that it's WEST SIDE STORY vs PIPPIN when really, both should have made it to the final rounds...

Don't forget Les Mis won the last bracket. The snobs (I count myself as one) get outvoted and there's a strong recency bias. Frozen easily beating Caroline, or Change hurts my heart. How are Funny Girl and Mean Girls even close?

I cannot live in a world where Beetlejuice is voted a better musical than Gypsy!

Looks like we’re about to see GYPSY, FOLLIES and SHE LOVES ME be eliminated in favor of BEETLEJUICE, ALADDIN and MARY POPPINS. 

Pathetic. Time for those of us over the age of 16 to start voting again with different email addresses!

Pathetic and appalling. I'm surprised and pleased that Ragtime and Great Comet are tied, although I suspect Ragtime will take over soon (not my choice).  Dreamgirls losing to Matilda? Heresy.

Some of these pairings were just plain mean.

Sunday in the Park against Parade? I feel like I'm the Confrontation in Jekyll and Hyde (I picked Sunday like a good boy). 

Dreamgirls v. Matilda? I really loved Matlida, but Dreamgirls is the great American musical of the end of the 20th Century.

Matilda can not be allowed to beat Dreamgirls!
