The Top 10 Theatrical Groups in Columbus in 2018
2018 was another great year for local theatre (if you’re in the mood, you can read through our archive of reviews by Richard Sanford) which makes it difficult to select just one group as the number one performers of the year. When we surveys our readers and editors this time around, they selected Shadowbox once again for the top slot.
This year may have been the most meaningful for the local troupe in some time, as it saw the passing of founder Stev Guyer, who had endured a long battle with cancer. While Columbus took the time to remember Guyer’s contributions to the city, his team at Shadowbox never missed a beat, continuing their incredibly dense year-round calendar of entertainment productions, which we have to imagine is making Stev proud.
