Best Local Play/Musical of 2013-14


The Civic's current season's opening show was so well-attended, selling out every performance in its monthlong run, a fifth week of shows was added. Those sold out, too. The musical was then revived in a special partnership with the Spokane Symphony earlier this month, which was also a hit. So it's no surprise that readers, like Clare Gaffney-Brown, gave it the top spot. "The Civic's production of Les Mis took local theater to another level," she says. Richard Robinson echoed these feelings, writing: "My wife and I attended the gala on the opening night. I sat in the first row and the sheer amount of talent on stage was completely captivating. We have attended many shows around the world, but I was never prouder of Spokane than in that moment. I felt that those performances could compete against any other show, anywhere." (CS)
