Quite a come back year: World premieres, epic musicals, moving two-character dramas, you name it. Here’s not so much a “best of the year” list – no such list can be reliable or complete – but a random recognition of outstanding performances, productions, trends and just moments that theaterlovers will carry with them into 2023.
There are stunning actors in this premiere A Wonderful World, breath-taking choreography and visuals in this life of jazz legend Louis Armstrong as he navigates a racist world and his own fallibilities.
