Classicalite's Top 10 of 2013: B. Samuels on Theater
Just as resident art historian Ross Smirnoff cited his Top 10 exhibits of 2013, B. Samuels, Classicalite's esteemed theater critic, hath spoken out on those productions that deserve special aesthetic accolades.
Alas, Henrik Ibsen's An Enemy of the People at BAM's Next Wave Fest did not make the list.

IX. Honor the Father
VI. Life and Times
Oscar-nominated actor/founding member of the Wooster Group Willem Dafoe and legendary performer Mikhail Baryshnikov are a dapper odd couple, forced to deal with the most inconsiderate--and inanimate--of houseguests, in this surreal marriage of absurdism, pitch-black comedy and vaudeville from director Robert Wilson.
Directed by Robert Richmond. 'Nuff said, Hank.
An all-male cast performing Shakespeare's Twelfth Night/Richard III on Broadway, featuring Tony Award-winning actor Mark Rylance in gender-bending performances as King Dick...and also as Olivia.
II & I. No Man's Land/Waiting for Godot
Samuel B. Beckett's En Attendant Godot is No. 1, of course.
