Best theater of 2016

With just a few hours left to 2016, here's a list of my favorite shows of the year. Some new names, some older ones still doing great work; some Off Broadway, some on, and some Off that will be On soon enough. It was a good year, at least when it comes to the stage.

And so, in alphabetical order:

A 24-Decade History of Popular Music
The Crucible
Dear Evan Hansen
Julius Caesar. Spared Parts.
Miles for Mary
Ride the Cyclone
Underground Railroad Game
The Wolves
