Here are my top favorites for 2013. My top showbiz picks which include: Cabaret, Broadway, TV and Off Broadway.
1. Pippin and Kinky Boots. They tie as I loved everything about both productions.
2. Off Broadway’s DISASTER- Jennifer Simard is so funny you must see this!
3. A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder- Just hysterical side splitting farce.
4. Forever Tango- Incredible dance is my thing and I was a bit obsessed. I saw it four times. If I could have afforded it I would have gone once every week. Seeing Maks and Karina was such a thrill. Hope they star on Broadway in a new dance show soon.
5. Jennifer Holliday at 54 Below I was blown away by her incredible vocal chops and her giant soulful sound. Best Cabaret show of the year! ( I loved many others: Kate Taylor at 54 Below, Marilyn Maye,many others)
6. Forbidden Broadway- We hope it returns soon.
7. The Glass Menagerie- The best production I have ever seen of this play.
8. MACBETH Lincoln Center
