Mark Rylance in anything, really, but in this case - La Bête
The best performance I have seen to date. A master class in spontaneity, playfulness, commitment - all while doing it in rhyming couplets.
I bought a standing-room ticket, and I have never felt more unaware of my physical status while watching a show. Riveting, heartbreaking, and educational from beginning to end.

I sympathized with this play in a painstakingly new and visceral way. For those who saw it - #bacon
I have never laughed that hard in a theater.
Playing the straight man is an incredibly difficult feat, and Hugh managed to execute it with such grace and selflessness, all the while making Nina Arianda look even more flawless than she is.
No commentary necessary.
I have the best seat in the house, but Vicki Clark in Gigi is astoundingly inspiring. She fully captures the world 1900 Paris with such ease and beauty, and keeps me on my toes.

I can't really put it into words, but it was truly an exhilarating theatrical experience.
I saw it three times.
My first Broadway show was Wicked when I was 14. I watched Idina Menzel in the back row of the Gershwin and wept. I'll never forget the chills I felt during "Defying Gravity."
