45 years later we are all celebrating our last Thanksgiving in this house. My parents have just sold their 5-bedroom house and are moving to a nearby senior living community. Cheers.
The 2014 version...
And the rest of the family...
*American Theatre omits Shakespeare productions and holiday-themed shows A Christmas Carol and Santaland Diaries from the list. But if you really want to know, this season, Christmas Carol is getting 46 productions, Santaland Diaries is getting 8 productions and the most-produced Shakespeare plays are A Midsummer Night’s Dream (10) and Romeo and Juliet (8).
**Christopher Durang’s Chekhovian Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike made the Top 10 list last year in eighth place, with 11 productions. That list, plus a 2013 best-play Tony Award, was apparently enough to propel Durang’s play to the top this year.
***American Theatre has printed the complete playscript to two of the Top 10 plays—Bad Jews by Joshua Harmon and 4000 Miles by Amy Herzog. We’re not saying we’re arbiters of not-for-profit theatre tastes, but…
****This marks the third year in a row that Jon Robin Baitz and Matthew Lopez and their plays (Other Desert Cities and The Whipping Man, respectively) have made the Top 10 list. Congratulations on those royalty checks, guys!
*****It seems last year’s female-packed Top 10 list was a temporary trend (last year, women made up half the list). The male/female ratio of this year’s list is 8:2.
This information is tallied from 404 theatres that self-reported their season to us. There were 1,876 entries that credited a playwright and/or a composer, and all productions are playing from Oct. 1, 2014, to Sept. 30, 2015. For the numbers from past Top 10 lists, click here.

PALO ALTO (KPIX 5) — A home that may be infested with rodents is on the market in Palo Alto with a staggering asking price.http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2014/10/21/uninhabitable-palo-alto-home-on-market-for-1-8m/
Neighbors were stunned when the dilapidated home went on the market for $1.8 million.
“We thought it would possibly go for $650,000, maybe $700,000. Then when it came out originally for $1.6 million, and then they raised it to $1.8 million, we were like, I’m kind of dumbfounded,” neighbor Dave Ashton said.
The house is in such bad shape that prospective bidders can’t even go inside to take a tour. Part of the house is being held up by wooden posts.
“It’s obviously uninhabitable,” Ashton said.
Realtor Debbie Wilhelm said if the home’s eventual new owners plan to bulldoze the house and start fresh, they will likely have to add nearly $1 million on to the price tag.
“I think it might be infested with, like, rodents, and it’s hard to even stand in it for three minutes,” said Wilhelm.
The seller received two offers Tuesday, and Wilhelm says it will sell to a group of investors.
