Ninth Annual Eddon Awards

The Best of LA Theatre for 2018

There are undoubtedly other productions worthy of merit in 2018 which I did not cover. This list is based solely on what I saw and reviewed.
  • Equity, Equity-waiver & Non-Equity productions are mixed
  • Artists performing outside LA may be included in performance categories 
  • No set, costume, technical awards. I leave those to the bigger awards and to the expertise of those who really know those fields inside out.
  • Don't take these choices too seriously. After all, it's just one man's opinions.
  • I have trimmed down categories to include a smaller number of winners  in each. I have also separated plays/musicals into Large Space and Intimate Space.
