Season Preview 2010-11: A Comprehensive Listing of Productions, Dates and Directors at TCG Theatres Nationwide


Schedule changes and additions are common in the course of a season, so readers are encouraged to contact theatres directly for updated information.

This year's Top 10 list touts an impressive eight newcomers to the annual tally of most-produced plays at TCG member theatres. (This snapshot reflects info reported to us by theatres at press time, and covers productions from October 2010 through September 2011; the most recently reported production information can be viewed throughout the year at www.tcg.org/profiles.) All but The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (up one production from last year) and To Kill a Mockingbird (appearing again after a year's hiatus) show up on the list this year for the very first time.

This season's winner, The 39 Steps, is scheduled to play at a whopping 23 TCG theatres--more than twice as many as last year's chart-topper, Peter Sinn Nachtrieb's boom. The influx of new work is epitomized by runner-up Circle Mirror Transformation (15), which premiered only a year ago. Also notable is a double whammy for playwright Tracy Letts.

As usual, we've omitted from our calculations works by those inevitable over-achievers Shakespeare (who's on for no fewer than 115 productions) and Dickens (whose A Christmas Carol will work its magic in at least 35 stagings), as well as holiday shows such as The Santaland Diaries (11). That means the popularity of a new holiday production, A Christmas Story (13), adapted by Philip Grecian, isn't reflected in the list; neither are a rash of seven various adaptations of Peter Pan. A tabulator's final note: The Twilight craze seems to have finally reached the stage, spawning a notable nine Dracula-inspired productions--including one fang-baring rock opera!--Lauren Rosenfield
