Definitely the year of jukebox musicals.  Of the 10 new musicals that opened in 2010, half featured no original score — AMERICAN IDIOT, COME FLY AWAY, EVERYDAY RAPTURE, MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET and SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM. Notable 2010 performances included British actor Douglas Hodge’s delicious Alban in the revival of LA CAGE AUX FOLLES and Laura Benanti’s scenery-chewing turn as neurotic model Candela in WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN.
