Best Theater Company: American Stage

Best Theater Company

Although the competition’s getting stiffer, American Stage offered more winners last season than any other local theater. Consider a year that brought us Tracy Letts’ brilliant August: Osage County, August Wilson’s luminous Seven Guitars, and Oscar Wilde’s witty An Ideal Husband. Then there was Matt McGee in The Rocky Horror Show, Lisa Powers in 2.5 Minute Ride, and Drew DeCaro and Justin Campbell in A Steady Rain. A season — and a theater — to treasure.
