How is the overall ShowScore calculated?
The ShowScore is based on scores from our members, not critics. Scores are weighted based on each member’s standing in the Show-Score community, so that active contributors who score many shows have a stronger weight. Scores from previous productions of a given show are discounted when reviews from the current show are available, as are reviews that were written when the show was in previews. We are constantly evaluating the algorithm, and therefore welcome feedback. You can directly influence the ShowScore -- simply score the show yourself!
