As of this moment, there is a clear front-runner in the poll.

How could this poll not have LCT's production of MACBETH?

I've only seen First Date and Romeo and Juliet, and let me tell you. Romeo and Juliet was the most boring and uninspired play I have ever seen.

How is Lucky Guy on this list? I didn't see it, but it did so well, financially.

The poll is for "worst," which is subjective and has to do with individual taste, not "biggest flop" (or least successful), which could factor in objective measures such as box office receipts. So far, five people in the poll have chosen "Lucky Guy" as the worst Broadway show of 2013.

How is Soul Doctor not winning?

Jekyll and Hyde was truly atrocious.

This poll astounds me. There were many shows I wanted to leave at intermission, and Jekyll and Hyde was not one of them.

How does it astound you? Jekyll and Hyde was slammed by critics, audiences avoided it, and it ended up ending its limited run early.

The worst musical isn't even on the list. Big Fish. Then would be Jekyll and Hyde, followed by Soul Doctor. No idea about those bad plays and concerts, didn't see them.

Actually, Big Fish is on the list, sort of.
There's a choice of "Other." 12 people have chosen that category -- one of whom put in a write-in vote for Big Fish. (Two voted for Macbeth and two for Matilda -- the only shows in Other with multiple votes.)

It is not possible to get a consensus on the best/worst show of the year. What one person may consider to be best show, someone else may consider the worst, and vice versa.

There's been a surge of write-in votes. Five people have voted for (or I guess against) Big Fish, the largest number of write-in votes. This doesn't compare of course to the 126 who selected Jekyll and Hyde.

After more than 600 of you have voted, I think we can declare a winner (loser?)
