Now you mention it, I did notice when I was in pit orchestras for shows that the music before intermission had more pages than the music after.

I just looked up Wicked. 11 songs in Act I, 9 in Act II:

Here's South Pacific--12 & 9:

Sound of Music--14 & 11:

Cats--12 & 11:

Miss Saigon--20 & 14:

Maybe The Band's Visit had no intermission--I can't find a list sorted by Act.
