A CurtainUp Review
Curtainup's 10

I don't much like these lists since they inevitably eliminate a bunch of well worth remembering shows. I find this especially regretful given that revivals tend to push their way to the forefront and outnumber new work that deserved to make the cut. And so, with special apologies to new plays like Mary Jane and the best solo play I've seen in a long time, Harry Clarke, here goes. The order is not a case of best first, but according to when I picked them out of my 2017 diary.

The Hairy Ape
Doll's House Part 2
/Red Letter Plays (In the Blood & F*ing A)
Soulpepper's Of Human Bondage
Sweeney Todd
The Hairy Ape
Sunday in the Park With George
A Doll's House, Part 2
The Band's Visit
