Today’s Wall Street Journal contains my best-theater-of-the-year column. Here are some of the highlights:
• Performer of the year Chicago’s Larry Yando, who appeared in Writers’ Theatre’s Dance of Death and Chicago Shakespeare Theater’s King Lear
• Best revival of a modern play Ontario’s Shaw Festival production of Edward Bond’s The Sea
• Best large-scale revival of a musical John Rando’s Broadway revival of On the Town
