Musical Madness- Round 2

by: Dan Mason (@djdan1079)

Round 1 of musical madness is in the books. While 11 lower seeds were victorious, only 5 of those could be considered big upsets.  Perhaps the most shocking result happened in the Valjean region where the #2 seed Dolly Levi lost by a 52-48% margin to the #15 seed, Roger. In fact, Rent was responsible for the other first round shocker as Angel treated Eliza Doolittle like an Akita named Evita and won by 4%.  Among the other first round surprises were losses by the soon to return to Broadway, Annie, who lost a nail biter to the 12th seed, Adelaide. Grizabella is now a distant memory after getting embarrassed by the #13 seed, Belle. In the Valjean bracket, the #6 seeded Effie White was a sleeper to win the tournament. Sadly, you, you, and you did NOT love her, and she loses to the #11 seeded Witch from Into The Woods.

Round 2 voting is now open and we have some interesting matchups. It’s a Kander & Ebb showdown in the Evita bracket, where Roxie Hart takes on the Emcee. We also have a battle of convicted felons when Valjean takes on Velma Kelly. In the Gypsy bracket, it’s a Patti Lupone-down when Mrs Lovett faces the top seeded Mama Rose. Diana from Next to Normal tries to make it 2 in a row over the relationship challenged. After defeating Bobby from Company in the first round, she now faces Roger.  See the the updated tournament brackets here. Voting is now open.
