Whether you attend stage works sporadically or, like me, you saw 85 shows in the past year, anyone who enjoyed even one will understand that feeling of leaving a venue thinking, "Wow ... that was really good." I experienced that sensation numerous times this year, and while this list is hardly exhaustive, it'll hopefully give you an idea of just what you've been missing if you missed out on 2009's offerings.

Narrowing down 2009's sensational stage portrayals into a list of 12 "favorites" is a hopeless task, really, so don't take this as any kind of last word on the subject; you'll find mention of amazing stage work all throughout my year-end coverage. Still, here's hoping you were able to catch at least a few of the following performances, which helped underline just how crazy with theatrical talent our area actually is.

Five Inspiring Ensembles

So, you think you have what it takes to review local theatre? Prove it! Prove it!

No, seriously, we'd like you to prove it.

After nearly five years and more than 300 area productions, the time has come for me to hang up my theatre-critic hat and get my hands dirty as an active participant in the area's vibrant theatre community. (While I'll continue to write movie reviews and feature articles for the Reader, my tenure as the paper's chief theatre critic will conclude with the December 24 issue.)

Consequently, the River Cities' Reader is seeking freelance writers who are interested in covering the terrain, and who would like to help continue the Reader's proud, 16-year history of informative and honest theatre analysis.
