FAVORITES:

  1. 2010 - Houdini (these top 2 are very close for me, but 2010 was more intense & performed better)
  2. 2009 - The Factory (but this show was much more emotional and really pulls you in)
    (big gap)
  3. 2008 - Le Tour
  4. 2016 - Le Reve
  5. 2012 - The Blue World

LEAST FAVORITE:

  1. 2017 - Star Crossed (incredibly uneven, started off great with R&J, the Gatsby section was ok but nothing special, but the Moulin Rouge section was an abomination - I've never seen a show start so strongly and then just go downhill the entire time to an absolutely horrifying mess of an ending)

A great description of how the show/storyline progressed (or seemingly didn't).  Also, I had a hard time with the Gatsby section, as I would have liked to hear some early 20th century jazz in that section of the show.
