2008 Broadway review

Ben Brantley reviews the dozen best shows of 2008, complete with audio slide shows. Sarah Kane's bleak and violent outlook can be hard to take, but at least it has migrated over to this side of the Atlantic. (Bobo saw Kane's *Crave* in Salt Lake City, c. 2002.)

A companion look-back article by Charles Isherwood mentions *What's That Smell,* the show that Max Kumangai is in. (See the Nov. 30 post on this blog.)
