Larry and local theater critics Steven Leigh Morris and Don Shirley look back at the year’s on-stage offerings and talk about what was hot, what was not and what performances they recommend you see during the holidays. They'll be discussing 2011's hits such as "God of Carnage," as well as the plays that are currently being staged in the Southern California area.


Did you see a show you thought was great? What about one that was terrible? What is playing now that looks interesting to you?


Don Shirley, LA Stage Watch columnist and the copy editor of, which is the online journal of the LA STAGE Alliance.
