Jesus Christ Superstar, Peter and the Starcatcher, and the Best Broadway Shows of 2012

A week spent at the theater may be called decadence by some, but I call it a dream come true, especially when that week is spent seeing four of Broadway's acclaimed productions just days after the 2012 Tony Awards. The lights, chaos and hoards of tourists that inhabit Times Square can typically be avoided by those lucky New Yorkers who don't work or live in its vicinity. Broadway, however, is an attraction that makes all the shoving (and way too much stranger-touching) of Times Square a little less horrifying.
