Top 15 - The Number 14 (Waterfront)
Okay, I’ll admit that my fondness for this one is partly based on my old Young Shakespearians teacher Mike Stark being it. Also, when they did the vignette about Shakespeare I was the only one laughing and he finally turned to the audience and said “come on people, it’s Shakespeare, if you don’t get it ask the girl laughing.” That said, when done well the Number 14 can be extremely funny, and it has a Vancouver flavor – since it was written about a Vancouver bus. It's a great play for anyone who has spent too much time commuting on public transit.
