Last week we launched our Bracket Challenge with a couple of Pre-Tourney polls. You can see the results from Week 0 here. This week the real action starts as we ask you to decide which is the best musical of the past 20 years.
The initial pairings were randomly generated and each of the four “regions” were named in honor of a legendary composer. Here’s the bracket and a schedule. Next week (week 2) will feature the second half of the first round brackets. New rounds of voting will be released Tuesday evenings.
