In any regular year, Broadway operates in waves. The first comes in the fall when a host of new shows open just before the influx of Christmastime tourists. The second arrives in the spring, as plays and musicals clamor for Tony Awards consideration. That being said: There's truly never a bad time to see some great theater.
More than new musicals opened on Broadway over the past 10 years, and we've spent the past few weeks looking back on them all to come up with our favorites of the decade. The voting among our eight editorial staff members got a little contentious at times, but in the end, we were able to come up with a list that pleased us all. Here is our decade-end best list, presented in alphabetical order to avoid any more infighting. Bandstand Compared with some of the other titles on this list, Bandstand was a blip on the Broadway radar, only running for total performances. But Rob Taylor and Richard Oberacker's musical told an important story that often gets overlooked in the entertainment industry. Exploring how music helps a group of World War II vets readjust to civilian life, Bandstand deals with topics like PTSD and loss, presenting the struggles of each character with accuracy and sensitivity. It's a shame it didn't run longer and it's a huge shame that stars Corey Cott and Laura Osnes didn't get Tony nominations , but at least Andy Blankenbuehler's excellent production for which he won the Best Choreography Tony was filmed for posterity.
