We made it! Not only is it the end of another year but it's the end of another decade! For the last three years I've been aiming to see over 52 plays per year and this year I really outdid myself.

2017 was a pretty good year in theatre. In total I saw thirty-three shows this year, which, compared to my over fifty in 2016, is a bit of a slower year for me.

Before we get started with the list, I should explain a bit about what I like in theatre. I really like shows that make audience question the form of theatre itself. For this reason, site-specific shows and immersive shows are of particular interest to me. I enjoy shows that are creative in their use of space, costumes, props, lights, and set as storytelling tools. I think shows that use tech effectively and let the audience use their imagination are very fun to watch.

If a show makes me feel, I'm on board. Whether I'm connecting with the characters because of shared experience, or I'...
