Best Theater - 2011
Theater Latte Da
It was a terrific year for this musical theater that can. Each production featured creative, thrilling, and most of all artful events full of top-notch acting, singing, and (when appropriate) movement. The company tackled pieces both big and small, from the quiet, folksy chamber music of Violet to all the pomp and circumstance the stage could contain in Evita. Topping the season off was another edition of the company's annual collaboration with Cantus, All Is Calm, which still packs a considerable emotional wallop even after years of performance. Spending an evening at Theater Latte Da means you will see a clear, well-directed interpretation of a piece featuring actors who are fully committed to their roles. The level of professionalism, in turn, means you are seeing the material in its top form. In a community jam-packed with talent, Latte Da's commitment to the material and performance allows the company to stand out among the crowd.
