FEATURE: Top 10 Shows of 2018

By my count, I’ve attended 246 performances of theatre, dance, music, opera, and cabaret during 2018.  Out of a field that large, it’s hard to pick just ten, but nevertheless, here are my top ten favorite shows I saw in New York (including no new musicals and only three Broadway shows!).

"A Bronx Tale" will close August 5th; Glenda Jackson will do "King Lear" on Broadway in Spring 2019; an all female Broadway revival of "Glengarry Glen Ross" is in the works; the Vineyard Theatre announces its 2018-2019 season; Austin Pendleton is directing and starring in "Wars of the Roses: Henry VI & Richard III"; Manhattan Concert Productions will present "The Scarlet Pimpernel"; Liliane Montevecchi and Dame Gillian Lynne have died

Edward Albee’s 1994 Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece “Three Tall Women” is ferociously compelling under the smart hand of director Joe Mantello, and features a trio of astonishing performances by Glenda Jackson, Laurie Metcalf, and Alison Pill.  This limited engagement of a towering work by a towering playwright and featuring three towering performances is not to be missed.

Second Stage's "Torch Song" is headed to Broadway in the fall; Gavin Creel out of "Hello, Dolly!" until May - Santino Fontana steps in March 13th; NBC's "Jesus Christ Superstar" telecast announces full cast; the Parkland shooting survivors behind #NeverAgain are drama kids
