The year is coming to an end and, like many people, we have found ourselves reminiscing on the past year, especially on all the wonderful theatre we’ve seen since we started our website this summer. With that in mind, we have comprised our He Said/She Said’s Top Ten Denver Productions of 2010 list to share with you all. OK – so it’s really only the Top Ten since we started our website on July 1st. We fully admit this is not a comprehensive list, but in that short amount of time we have seen over 50 shows (not all reviewed) from an array of theatre companies and we’d like to take the time to celebrate our favorites.
To determine our favorite shows, we made a list of all the shows we have seen since July, whether we reviewed them or not, and removed the Broadway tours. We then each made a list of “nominees” – our individual favorites not limited to any number. When we compared our individual list of “nominees”, we had 10 shows in common which became the “finalists”. Finally, we individually ranked the shows and averaged out the numbers giving us our ultimate list.
Keep in mind this list is subjective and not meant to reflect the last word in theatre. These are the shows that we’ve enjoyed the most in the last 6 months, but, as evident by our format, we enjoy exploring different opinions and encourage conversations. So check the list of shows we’ve critiqued, and let us know if you see one that you feel should have made our list!
