Almost every Broadway show we go to has significantly more music before intermission than after.

This phenomenon is not confined to musicals. Modern plays, dance performances, comedy acts, and other forms of live entertainment all tend to have a shorter second act than first. I always thought this made sense from the viewer/audience perspective since peoples’ energy and attention span often wane as the show goes on no matter how good it is.
