Wendy's Top Ten of 2011

2011 continued my personal trend of seeing many more Off-Off-Broadway shows and considerably fewer Broadway Shows, with Off-Broadway holding steady. In fact, of over 70 shows, only eight were on Broadway. And this year, it's not just the insanely high price of tickets keeping me away--it's also the lackluster offerings. Perhaps my life will be forever diminished because I never saw Bonnie and Clyde or Mountaintop or the latest Anything Goes, but I'm willing to risk that, particularly because Off-Off- and Off-Broadway boast such high-quality offerings.

Here, then, in alphabetical order, is my top ten list, with links to the reviews:

Only saw six of your ten, but agree with all of them, especially Dog Act.

Thank you so much Wendy for including Flux's DOG ACT in your top 10 list! Wishing I'd seen more of the others you included. We are very grateful for your long-time support of Flux and can't wait to see you at MENDERS.

If you had to name your number one of 2011, which of the ten would it be? Or is that too impossible to do?

I could maybe, maybe, get it down to five! One would be impossible. It was an excellent theatre-going year for me.

What about you, Mr./Ms. Anonymous? What were your bests of the year?
