Lucky Guy Top Off-Broadway Musical For 2011

It was the Best Little Whorehouse in Texas blended with A Star Is Born; Lucky Guy was loads of rootin’-tootin’ fun.  Besides, who could ever resist Ms. Varla Jean Merman?

Rent Top Off-Broadway Musical Revival for 2011

After many incarnations, Rent returned to its Off-Broadway roots.  Still as powerful as ever, Jonathan Larson’s rock opera and its new cast brought me to tears.  Long live Rent!

Diary of a Madman Top Off-Broadway Production For 2011

Ah, Geoffrey Rush!  What more can I say?  Watching him on stage was bliss.  He may have descended into madness, but I was lifted watching one of the greatest actors of the late 20th century perform his craft.

Clifford Chase’s Winkie Top 59E59 Production For 2011

The theaters of New York City are like my second home.  But there is one that I resided in more than any other in 2011.  I was at 59E59 Theaters so often that I was thinking of moving in the area, and therefore I had to give the Off-Broadway theater its own category this year.

I viewed myriad shows, from theater companies from all over the country and abroad.  Most were gems, a few were cut glass.  Out of all the productions I viewed in 2011 my top would be Clifford Chase’s Winkie.  I loved the idea of a stuffed animal coming to life and experiencing all the evils of the world and still having the capacity to love.  What a lesson we could learn from Winkie!

Top Event For 2011 Harry Potter: The Exhibition

The Harry Potter Film series may have come to an end, but before it did the movie magic of Harry Potter made a pit stop at Discovery Times Square.  I have yet to see all the films, but even a muggle novice like me can appreciate the lavish details it took to bring the J.K. Rowling series to the big screen.  After touring Hogwarts, I wanted to get a wand and cast a spell.  Abracadabra!
