Taking another bow ...

This time of year it seems that "Best of" and "Top 10" lists are everywhere. Weekly Planet, Tampa's alternative weekly paper, compiles an annual Top 10 list of theater produced in the Bay area and this year's results look great for TBPAC. Five of this year's plays took place at The Center.

At number seven there was the jubilant Jaeb cabaret musical SATCHMO. Jobsite Theater, TBPAC's resident theater company, took numbers three and six with The Complete History of America (abridged) and Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune. Stageworks' Collected Stories took number five, and the Stageworks/Hat Trick co-production of The True History of Coca-Cola in Mexico finished out the list at number ten.

Congrats to all of these companies and productions! Here's to a great season of live theater at TBPAC in 2006! In January alone folks can choose from such diverse offerings as the hit musical Forever Plaid, the Pulitzer Prize winner Topdog/Underdog or the edgy late night comedy Phyro-Giants!

If you'd like to read the whole Planet list, you can do so here.
