Now if only I could see Darren Criss take it over for a month.... Septimus & Clarissa -- an illuminating re-imagining of Virginia Woolf's masterpiece ranks alongside it, though that's not strictly based on her work, but her letters.) It's a triumph for star and playwright Ellen Mc Laughlin and director Rachel Dickstein. Blanche: The Bittersweet Life Of A Wild Prairie Dame -- I walked out of this charming pocket musical based on the life of the creator's grandmother determined to tell people to rush and see this offering at the New York Musical Theatre Festival before it disappeared..to find out that the final show was just a few hours later. One Man, Two Guvnors -- this rollicking London comedy has stayed in my mind. How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying (w Daniel Radcliffe) *** 41. Catch Me If You Can (w Aaron Tveit) *** 1/2 production of ** 1/2 musical 47. The Motherf**ker With The Hat (w Chris Rock) *** 51. kd lang at Le Poisson Rouge *** (would have been **** if she had played a full concert) 53.
THE ENTIRE 2011 THEATER SEASON (INCLUDING SOME CONCERTS) 1. The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore with Olympia Dukakis * 11. Hugh Jackman: Back On Broadway OTHER HIGHLIGHTS *Catching return engagements of the operas at Fringe Fest 2011 RECAP -- THE BEST SHOWS OF THE YEAR Talking about the best shows of the calendar year feels a bit odd since the theater season runs from the fall through the spring. But the calendar is king so it's time for a best of the year wrap-up. All's Well That Ends Well/Shakespeare In The Park ** 1/2 84. Zarkana/Cirque Du Soleil at Radio City Music Hall ** 86. The Interminable Suicide Of Gregory Church -- Daniel Kitson's one-man show was my first chance to experience his considerable skill. But this peerless production directed by John Dove and with a matchless cast headed by Ellie Percy was a marvel from top to bottom. The School For Lies -- David Ives had a banner year, but I'd argue this brilliant adaptation of Moliere's The Misanthrope at Classic Stage Company was the peak, thanks to brilliance all around, led by actors Mamie Gummer and Hamish Linklater. But I thought director Roger Rees did an even better, similar job in creating this tale about Peter Pan with the simplest and most pleasing theatrical devices. Another show I paid to see and thrilled to have done so. I loved the film, but I must make special mention that, for a film filled with dialog, for once, I caught every word. Why can't every film be as carefully constructed?Here's a list of my favorite shows of the year, followed by other highlights, a recap of the year and a brief word on each show. Sleep No More -- Punchdrunk's work is always gripping but this immersive extravaganza spin on is the most welcome hit of the year 4. One played at Fringe Fest in Manhattan and the other in Brooklyn and I would have gladly gone to the other three boroughs to see them three more times. Word is they'll be coming to Off Broadway in 2012 with a new show. All's Well That Ends Well at the Globe in London -- the Globe is one of my favorite theatrical haunts in the world, thanks to rock bottom prices (five pounds if you can stand in the pit, which happen to be the best seats) and great quality. Peter and The Starcatcher - People went crazy over the inventive staging of Cymbeline by Theatre For A New Audience, which I enjoyed. You can't name the best films of the year if you haven't at least seen This year I have. First, most people simply couldn't afford to go to that many shows even if they wanted to. Much Ado About Nothing (UK West End w David Tennant) ** 1/2 74.
But I've never made a list of my favorite theater shows because I've never seen enough of the big events to pass judgment. Still Mr Segel is most effective in breathing life into the man such that you would love to have known him.Even his co-star, Jesse Eisenberg, who I don't usually warm up to, is quite up to the task at hand, i.e., sparring with the great author to get the real man down on paper.It's coming to Broadway in April and promises to be one of the real wild cards of the season. Why did so many people dismiss or play down this show, even Tony voters who should have appreciated the craft on display? Arcadia -- This revival was also passed over by many but I love Tom Stoppard and it was a treat to see Billy Crudup tackle another role after seeing him in the original Broadway production. I think this production is the best I've ever seen and it's bursting with great talent and great songs but I still think it could be done even better and the static second act brought further to life. Far superior to the Steven Spielberg film and indeed even the book. Hand To God -- A show about a sock puppet possessed by the devil? Small Craft Warnings Tennessee Williams revival zero stars 18. The Civilians at Joe's Pub w work-in-progress Let Me Ascertain You *** 25. Amadou & Mariam at Cooper Square Hotel ** 1/2 (bad acoustics, hard to see them) 43. Peter and the Starcatcher (dir by Roger Rees) *** 1/2 49. James Corden is going to be the hardest working man on Broadway now that Hugh Jackman is done. It made clear that Aaron Tveit is a Broadway star triple threat (four if you count his handsome looks). A major work from a major playwright presented with care. A fun cast led by an inspired Steven Boyer make it work. The Diary Of A Madman with Geoffrey Rush at BAM *** 19. Three Sisters (w Maggie Gyllenhaal, Peter Sarsgaard) *** 1/2 26. As such it is almost all dialog meant to convey a sense of Mr Wallace's breadth of knowledge about popular culture and his imagination.
