  I find it interesting so far that Hamiltoon is NOT everybody's number 1. (Times have changed!)

How did you view the results so far? I filled out the survey but don't see any results listed yet.

The platform is flawed in that it only allows the poll creator (me) to see the results. But I'll post them once there are enough answers so that the ranking is unlikely to change.

fwiw I don't know how many people who voted have actually seen/are familiar with all 10 shows (I'll admit I'm not), so I did tend to rank the ones I know well ahead of the others and I'm sure others did too.

The Civil War is better than most of those shows and should be on that list. I feel like assassins is that high because it’s a Sondheim
