The Best and Worst Plays I Saw in 2014

Here, in alphabetical order, is a list of the 15 plays I rated as Very Good (****) in 2014:

Ayckbourn Ensemble
Between Riverside and Crazy
The City of Conversation
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
Forbidden Broadway Comes Out Swinging
Honeymoon in Vegas
The Invisible Hand
Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill
My MaƱana Comes
The Mystery of Irma Vep
An Octoroon
The Oldest Boy
On the Town
Satchmo at the Waldorf

Here, also alphabetically, are the six plays I rated as poor (*) this year:

The Happiest Song Plays Last
Punk Rock
Poor Behavior
While I Yet Live

This year I did not rate any play as Excellent (*****) — although there were a few that came very close —or as Horrible (0 stars) 

2014 came out significantly better than 2013: last year I rated only six plays as 4-star, while there were 11 with one star and one play with none.
