Best Musical 

Reefer Madness, Eubank Productions

This year has been a great one for musicals, which means it's been a great year for Steven Eubank, Kansas City's Napoleon of the Jazz Hands. Leaping this spring from his catch-as-catch-can Just Off Broadway venue to the Off Center Theatre, Crown Center's professional, reliable godsend of a stage space, Eubank's shows made a corresponding leap in quality and that tough-to-identify factor we'll call holy shit. Reefer Madness was a cute show with a clever book and some better-than-average comic songs, but Eubank and his hardworking, hard-abbed, hardly believable ensemble packed this thing full of holy shit. God might have mistaken it for his throne of thrones. Crisp, exact, exciting and sexy, constantly topping themselves, the dancers alone made this a must-see. All that plus killer comic timing, cutting sight gags and the hilarious Doogin Brown in his best role yet. There's no musical, play, recital or brothel offering entertainment value like this.
