Theatre writer Richard Zoglin's choices for the best onstage in 2008 follow:
1. Billy Elliot
2. Hair
3. All My Sons
4. The Visit
5. Black Watch
6. reasons to be pretty
7. The Little Mermaid
8. Blasted
9. South Pacific
10. Farragut North

I, Erik Swanson, also have my own list of favorites so far this year and they are as follows;

1.South Pacific
2.All My Sons
3.Liza's at the Palace
6.39 Steps
8.Little Mermaid
9.White Christmas
10.Slava's Snowshow

Just missed the cut;
Rock of Ages
Billy Elliot

Sorry Billy's at the bottom of my list, but I was entertained more by all the above. I'm not saying Billy Elliot is terrible by any means, because it is a good show, but I was expecting a lot more.
