EW Lists the 10 (4) Best Stage Shows of 2018

Entertainment Weekly created a list of their ten favorite stage productions of the year, including both plays and musicals. Here are four of their ten selections - check out the rest at the source.

7. The Waverly Gallery

The Waverly Gallery has Elaine May making a return to Broadway after a 50 year absence, and newly minted Golden Globe nominee Lucas Hedges making his Broadway debut. This is also director Lila Neugebauer's first time on Broadway, having recently directed Lincoln Center's excellent production of The Wolves.

5. My Fair Lady

2018 has been a great year for plays, and so Lincoln Center's revival of My Fair Lady is the highest ranking musical on the list at #5. Originally, the show starred Six Feet Under's Lauren Ambrose in the iconic role of Eliza Doolittle, but currently you can find theater veteran Laura Benanti getting a posh makeover.

2. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

The Wizarding World may not be setting the box office on fire the way it once did, but Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has already made more money than any other non-musical production on Broadway, and audiences are continuing to attend in record numbers.

1. Angels in America

The National Theatre's revival of the 90's epic Angels in America transferred to Broadway in the spring and ran through July, and it was incredible. Andrew Garfield and Nathan Lane led a stellar cast in this two part, seven plus hour production, and each won a Tony Award for their efforts.
