Best Shows of the First Half of the 2023-2024 Season
By Joseph Cervelli
Here are what I consider the best shows I have seen from May till December of this year.
So, here in no particular o…
A dazzling star turn by Wade McCollum.
Silly, crazy and loads of fun!
Despite a fine cast, a very disappointing new show on several levels.
A deeply moving, emotionally exhausting new play by Rebecca Gilman which, thus far, is easily the best show of the season.
An engrossing new Theresa Rebeck play but with some reservations.
Two superb performances in this staggering new play.
A beautifully subtle new play with an unforgettable performance by William Jackson Harper.
A haphazard new play unsure what it wants to be.
"Oliver!" Glorious "Oliver!"
Back in January, I listed those shows I felt were the best up to that point and now the remainder of the season.
A wondrous new show based on the best selling book.
This never published and never produced work is among the season's best.
Too many issues never coalesce into an involving play.
Along with those of honorable mention.
A strikingly powerful new play outstandingly acted. Catch it before it leaves on December 18.
A deeply personal memoir beautifully told.
An intriguing and superbly acted new work about being unable to deal with reality after a horrifying incident.
An immensely likable storyteller in a heartfelt solo show.
This revival succeeds well in the first act but then takes a serious nosedive in the second act.
This unpleasant new play seems to indicate that if you need support from loved ones when ill you better look elsewhere.
Thoughtful and sincere but faulty.
A disastrous new revival of this brilliant play.
A very likable new musical that needs tightening.
Charming and bittersweet tale of seeking one's true dream but being held back by various "chains" preventing you.
An endearing look at the cycle of one's life. A beautifully acted new play by Noah Haidle
Laiona Michelle is electrifying as Nina Simone.
A fascinating but thinly written new play
