Billy Elliott The Musical, Jersey Boys, We Will Rock You and Les Miserables are in contention to win the BBC Radio 2 Olivier Audience Award.
The plays were revealed on the Elaine Page show having received more votes than 14 other London theatre breaks favourites.
Voting has now reopened with the final four contenders starting from scratch in a bid to win the award, which is the only Laurence Olivier prize decided by the general public alone.
"The winner of the BBC Radio 2 Olivier Audience Award will be announced at the revamped ceremony to be held on Sunday March 13th at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, where public ticket holders, industry guests and the shining stars of the London stage will come together for an evening of unique entertainment and celebration," said a spokesperson.
For the first time in ten years, the public will be able to attend the event, with tickets going on sale tomorrow (Tuesday March 1st).
