Best Live Theater for Ingenuity

Red Hen Productions

Red Hen has shown the moxie to surmount huge obstacles (a minuscule budget and no permanent home) to produce works of infinite variety and imagination within their feminist agenda. This year's triumphs include a subversive Nancy Drew parody, a transgendered Merchant of Venice, and a redemptive ghost story. All this demonstrating that a lack of funds does not imply a lack of fascination.
