(I've linked to my reviews for shows I did indeed review.)
In the following shows, everyone was wonderful.
A Chorus Line
The Possibilities/The After-Dinner Joke
In the following shows, everyone was wonderful but one or two people stood out, usually in lead roles.
Conflict--great cast, especially Jeremy Beck
Fabulation--great cast, especially Cherise Boothe

Happy Birthday, Wanda June--great cast, especially Jason O'Connell and Kate MacCluggage
Holy Ghosts--great cast, especially Oliver Palmer
Jerry Springer The Opera--great cast, especially Will Swenson
And then there are two individual performances I want to single out.
Farah Alvin was a new discovery for me in Inner Voices 2018. I think she can do pretty much anything.

In contrast, Ethan Hawke has long been a favorite of mine. I enjoy his all-in, balls-to-the-wall commitment to his roles, and I enjoy even more that he knows when to pull back. In True West, he is mesmerizing.
Now I'm wondering if I should have included Jerry Springer The Opera, Ordinary Days, and The Possibilities/The After-Dinner Joke on my "best of" list. They were all wonderful. But what would I have removed from the existing list to make room?
