I guess I'm surprised that "Next to Normal" didn't make it to your list. I was trying to go back to your review of it and I can't figure out how to do that.

I thought next to normal was great. But of the hundreds and hundreds of shows I saw, narrowing all those down to the 50 I enjoyed the most was a very difficult task! Click here to read the next to normal review I posted earlier.
