Wade Bradford of about.com has written a list of 10 plays that newcomers to theatre should see.
"A friend of mine recently confessed, 'I haven't watched a play since junior high.' He then asked me for suggestions. He wanted to know which stage productions were essential for a person who is new to theater-going, who might not have time to see plays very often," Bradford writes. "His question made me wonder... Which plays represent the best elements of the theater?"
Although there are no absolutes when it comes to the Top 10 of anything artistic, Bradford offers some unusual choices. You can read the full list here.
