Review: BWW's Shari Barrett Selects Her Favorite Plays in 2018

The month marks the start of my 7th year as a reviewer for Broadway World Los Angeles. Review: BWW's Shari Barrett Selects Her Favorite Plays in 2018With awards season in full bloom each January, many people ask me what my favorite shows were for the previous year. Since I see 3-5 shows per week, that is a difficult and time-consuming task for me to accomplish. But for 2018, I decided to go back through all the 188 reviews/articles I wrote for every show I saw and selected my top shows month-by-month. And what fun it was to go back and select one photo from each of the top 39 shows I selected, a few of which will appear in this post.

I posted all the reviews/articles for listed shows on either Broadway World Los Angeles or as my Stage Page column in the Culver City News, then shared links to them on each show's Better Lemons page.

Here is the list of My Favorite Plays in 2018
