I voted for Women on the Verge because of the cast. I'm really looking forward to seeing Patti LuPone and Laura Benanti again.

But I want to put in a good word for A Free Man of Color, which I'm also very excited about seeing. It's got a 32-person cast, led by Jeffrey Wright; it's about a fascinating time period, New Orleans before the Louisiana Purchase; it's a new play by John Guare, and I've never seen his work on stage before. (Only the movie of Six Degrees of Separation.)

Absolutely The Pee Wee Herman Show - eagerly anticipated so much that I'm going on two nights. I'll see Merchant later this year, but dying to see PW!!!

Esther - I too am eagerly anticipating WOMEN ON THE VERGE due to its fantastic cast. But how can you leave out one of the most exciting aspects of the upcoming A FREE MAN OF COLOR? The return of George C. Wolfe at the helm. It's sure to be an interesting production.

Steve - I'm surprised that PEE WEE is the overwhelming winner of your poll, but I must admit I'm more than intrigued enough to see it.
