The Seattle theater scene has presented us with some amazing shows this last season and I felt it necessary to recognize some of the incredible talent and shows I was fortunate enough to see.  And as you can see, in a few categories, I couldn't even settle on just one winner.  So, without further ado, I present the 2011 BWW Critic's Choice Awards (Jay's Picks)!

Instituting a new three letter rating system for my reviews for 2014. They'll range from best to worst as WOW (A can’t miss), YAY (Too damn good), MEH+ (Good, with some great things going for it), MEH (Just OK), NAH (You can miss this one) and WTF (I think you can figure out my complex code there).
