The Maxamoo Podcast Looks Back at the Best & Worst of 2016
It's Maxamoo's annual year-end extravaganza when all of their most frequent contributors gather on a single episode to discuss the year in review of the theater in New York City.
This is the first half of their two-part year-end podcast. Next week we'll share the second half, listener questions.
If you had relatives (smart ones who enjoy good theater) coming to town for the holidays, what show currently playing in New York City would you recommend? (3:19)
What was your favorite moment at the theater this year? (8:30)
What was your worst moment at the theater this year? (16:27)
What was your favorite non-traditional (immersive, experimental, outdoors, on a boat) piece of theater you saw this year? (24:30)
What was your favorite non-theater performance (cabaret, comedy, music, etc)?
What was the best musical you saw this year? (41:29)
What was the best play you saw this year? (49:51)
What was your personal goal for theater in 2016? Did you achieve it? (58:04)
What is your personal ambition for theater in 2017? (1:01:45)
What is your hope for the theater community in 2017? (1:10:25)
On Maxamoo's New York City Theater Podcast we cut through that chaos and just tell you: what's good, what's bad, and what we recommend.
We base our recommendations on the quality and characteristics of the production, not theater size. So the terms Broadway, Off Broadway, and Off Off Broadway (which are all technical terms describing the location and number of seats in a theater) are not important to us.
We strive to include diverse, interesting, and innovative productions, shows you're probably missing if you rely on mainstream publications like the New York Times, The New Yorker, and Time Out New York, which cover only a tiny fraction of the arts, culture, and theater world.
