Another year, another whirlwind of great entertainment! 2014 brought a lot of daring and new theater as well as some great revivals of classic and modern texts. While some would say the year on Broadway was a bit lacking, the Off Broadway and Indie world greatly made up for it! Here's my list of the top 5 productions of the year!
1. Hedwig and the Angry Inch
Quite possibly the most underrated production of the entire year, Playwrights Horizons enchanted audiences with this stunning musical by Will Connolly, Michael Mitnick, and Kim Rosenstock. The stunning intertwining love story brought some performances that pulled on your heartstrings. Allison Case and Henry Stram gave some beautiful performances but try not crying while watching Peter Friedman.
3. Propaganda! The Musical
Each summer, PTP/NYC comes to the city and spends a month in residence at Atlantic Theatre Company's Stage II. This year, they brought with them an incredible revival of David Edgar's Pentecost. Wonderfully directed by Cheryl Faraone and featuring a large ensemble of professional and student actors, Pentecost defined the brilliance of Edgar's story with a stunning commentary on art.
