More than 400 people have replied so far to this survey, which is still open.

I have adjusted the winners in one of the categories. Most current first choices are ahead by such a huge percentage, that there are unlikely to be any more changes.

  1. I agree with the Masses, except, I really wanted Andre De Shields to win in Hadestown. Thanks for doing this.
