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)!
