As the 68th Annual Tony Awards draw near, Playbill.com asked a host of theatre artists, "What was your favorite performance or production of the current Broadway season — and why?" Their responses follow.

Kelli O'Hara is the loveliest, most gifted singer/actress! I was absolutely enthralled by her performance in The Bridges of Madison County. Her singing is ravishing, and her acting is so subtle and passionate. She is an instrument of Truth and Beauty, and I love her! I feel such rapture and relief about all things when I hear her sing. Jason Robert Brown's score is divine. Kelli is a perfect muse for Jason. I absolutely loved the show, and Steven Pasquale is a dreamy guy and singer as well. And, I would treasure any opportunity to hear Ms. Kelli sing.

I realize that I'm a little biased, but even if I didn't know anyone involved, I would still say my favorite production of the season was The Glass Menagerie. I don't think I've ever been swallowed so deeply into a world as I was peering into the Wingfield's St. Louis apartment. It's one of the most affecting productions I've seen in this or any season. Also, the girl they got to play "Laura Wingfield" was awfully good, too!
