As Times contributor Werner Trieschmann pointed out in his review of "Wicked," this year, "the idea that Arkansans can only see great shows by hopping on a plane to New York City ... took a big hit." In 16 performances at Robinson, Celebrity Attractions managed to sell nearly 40,000 tickets to "Wicked," which surely makes it Arkansas's biggest theater success ever. Arkansas native Avery Clark offered a tour de force performance in the title role of The Rep's acclaimed staging of "Hamlet." The Arkansas Shakespeare Fest continued to impress. And The Weekend Theater continued its tradition of bringing challenging, socially conscious fare to audiences.
