We couldn't help but play along! Take a look at all the shows our team saw this year!

Read on to find out what our team has to say about their #YearInTheater!

"Wow, this was a very busy year in theater for me! Looking at this list, every show brings back some memory about who came to see it with me. Whether I had family visiting, went with friends, or attended a Show-Score Member Night, my favorite part about seeing shows is spending time with other people!

"I'm thrilled to have doubled the number of shows I saw last year! As a mom of a 2-year-old, it's not always easy to get out, so my two show per month average feels like a huge win! The many incredible, timely, and resonant pieces of socially-conscious artmaking this year have challenged me to address how I face the world: 'Indecent', 'Turn Me Loose', 'Smart People', and 'Skeleton Crew' are all standouts. 2016 is also the year that I introduced my son to my passion (hence all the kids shows) which is the most magical part of my #YearInTheater!"

"'YOUARENOWHERE' absolutely blew my mind in 2016, and I certainly feel like the show's title rings true in real life as this very surreal year comes to an end."

"There were a lot of theater highlights in 2016, so I'll just narrow it down to some of my favorite moments: Jessie Mueller singing "She Used to Be Mine" in 'Waitress', the unconventionality of the gone-too-soon 'American Psycho', the perfect and charming revival of 'She Loves Me', and everything about the lovely musical 'The Band's Visit at the Atlantic'." 

"It's been an amazing year of theater discovery for me and musicals have always been easy favorites... so what I've enjoyed discovering most are the incredible new plays, and this year my favorite goes to 'Smart People.'"

"'YOUARENOWHERE' and 'Imagining the Imaginary Invalid' were highlights of the year with verve and imagination; 'Vietgone' made me proud to be the child of immigrants; and 'El Coquí' was pretty damn fun!"

"Looking at my theater collage, I'm shocked I made it out alive. :) I probably spent more time at the theater than with my family!"

"Small shows came up big, big shows came up small!"

"My favorite shows were some of the least conventional ones! Mike Birbiglia's 'Thank God for Jokes' had the perfect amounts of wit and warmth, while the staging of 'The Great Comet' pushed the limits of what I thought was possible within a Broadway house."

"'She Loves Me' was a perfect gem. It meant so much to me as a fan and to see my pal Laura Benanti back on Broadway—she was glorious in the role!"
