Let the "Awards" Begin

Playgoer doesn't really see the point of "10 Best" lists in the theatre--especially when one is expected to do it twice a year! (At year's end and then "season's" end. Tony-time, that is.)

But I'm happy to link to others' wrap-ups. New York Magazine gets us started with some safe, yet not egregious picks, and (Obie-style) eschews the usual categories. NYM critic Jeremy McCarter follows up with a brief thoughtful essay and a tribute to the deserving New Group.

Shall we start our own? Submit your nominations to the comment box...
