As the first year of Theatre to the Point comes to a close we wanted to recognize the best of what we saw in 2017. We were paying audience members at a limited number of shows this year and in the future as our site grows we expect these yearly reviews to be a far more comprehensive overview of the best our region had to offer.

Best Musical:

The Wild Party – Constellation

We were wild about this Constellation production. Stellar performances and great value for money led us to declare it was “one of the must see shows of the season”

Review

Best Play:

Peter and the Starcatcher – Maryland Ensemble Theatre

We loved this bold and imaginative show. Quality small professional theatre at community theatre prices.

Review

Best Value Show:

Big Fish – Keegan

There was some great value this year and this was a close run race. With a +$17 rating Big Fish was the big value.
