- Bloody Hell
Frank Wildhorn’s Dracula sucks. Plus: Mickey Rooney, winsome against all odds in a cabaret performed with his eighth wife, Jan.

- Shavian Cream
A hyperkinetic Pygmalion and a virtuoso performance in Man and Superman rise to the top at another memorable Shaw Festival.

- Croak Classic
The Frogs fails to make a splash. Plus a neatly trimmed After the Fall, some too-clever Fiction, and a lively adaptation of an Isaac Bashevis Singer story.

- Trio Brava
British threesome Fascinating Aïda is a witty delight; Boy is intriguing but manipulative; and Here Lies Jenny tries (and fails) to do the Weill thing.

- Second Sight
A revival of Donald Margulies’s brilliant play about Jewish identity; Kia Corthron’s babble; Jon Robin Baitz’s improbable triangle.
