Jessica Welch starred at the Rep.

JUKEBOX MUSICALS The Rep’s “Looking Over the President’s Shoulder,” a one-man show starring Lawrence Hamilton, starred in my year at the theater. But wildly beloved musicals ruled the box office. Particularly those built on little more than song. A traveling production of the ABBA-inspired “Mamma Mia!” at Robinson, another go of “Always … Patsy Cline” at the Rep and a wonderfully overblown version of “Tommy” also at the Rep — those were the stage shows that had everyone talking. Special mention to Christina Sajous, whose punked-out and sexed-up turn as the Gypsy in “Tommy” made a lasting impression.
