Show Showdown's Most Read Stories of 2012

In 2012, Show Showdown published 146 total posts. These twenty were the most read--or at least the most-clicked-on. I have tried to find a theme, but with no luck. Broadway, Off-Broadway, Off-Off-Broadway, and regional theatre are all represented. Some are positive reviews, some quite negative. Some shows were reviewed on Show Showdown more than once, but only one review made this list--not necessarily the first review, not necessarily the review written by a particular writer. Six of the shows are musicals; one is about musicals; and one is a cabaret performance. Six shows were revivals.

I guess the only theme is that our readers have catholic tastes.

  1. Les Miserables (Eastlight Theatre in Illinois; Jamie Fuller)
  2. "Hard Times: The Adult Musical in 1970s New York City" (Liz Wollman)
  3. Fort Blossom Revisited (2000/2012) (Wendy Caster)
