Zak's End of Year Picks

The holidays are over, the year is winding down, but there is still a lot of great theatre to be seen. So, check these shows out before it's too late.

Best of Off-Broadway: Fuerzabruta
Go see this show!

Take Your Out of Town Guests: All My Sons
Tourists want to see stars, and you get a lot of bang for your buck with this solid revival of Arthur Miller’s classic. Who knows, you might even see a Scientology protest outside beforehand. Two shows for the price of one. You can’t go wrong.

Fun Night Out While It's Still Cheap: Rock of Ages
This bitchin' 80's musical is transferring to Broadway and the movie rights have been sold to a major studio. Go see this totally rad show while it's still at the intimate New World Stages. And be sure to go to Blockheads next door for $3 Margaritas before the show so you can rock even harder.

You'll Kick Yourself if You Miss It: Spring Awakening
It won a gaggle of Tonys and is closing soon. Go see this edgy musical while you still can, it closes January 18th. Don't be scared off by the subject matter–I took my mother to see it when she was in town. If you're not too uptight you'll find your self enjoying the intriguing story and infectious rock score by Duncan Sheik.

You're Kicking Yourself That You Missed It: The Seagull
What better time of year than New Year's for a little regret, right? While it's too late to see this wonderful revival of Chekhov’s classic, you truly missed out. It was great. Sucks to your asthmar that you missed it. Your loss. (Editor's note: Theatre Is Easy does not condone flagrant patronizing.)
