Your Top 10 Shows This Decade#76
Posted: 12/5/19 at 2:45pm

I've included new shows, not revivals, with half plays and half musicals, in no ranking order.  I must say, I think it was a much better decade for plays than for musicals, where I had trouble even coming up with five.

Plays:

Other Desert Cities

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime

The Humans

A Doll's House, Part 2

To Kill a Mockingbird

Musicals:

Catch Me If You Can

Fun Home

Dear Evan Hansen

Come From Away

Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812

"In theater, the process of it is the experience. Everyone goes through the process, and everyone has the experience together. It doesn't last - only in people's memories and in their hearts. That's the beauty and sadness of it. But that's life - beauty and the sadness. And that is why theater is life." - Sherie Rene Scott
