Hurrah, I made it to the end of the year. And despite repeated protestations that I'm cutting down on how much I'm seeing, this year saw me break all records in seeing 383 shows (technically it will be 388 but I'm not counting my Broadway trip in these figures). It's been hard-going at times, and hugely delightful at times, but I'm glad to have done it and thank you all for coming along with me.
As ever, I have used the label 'best', the categories should really be considered 'favourite' as that is what the fosterIANs (fos-tîr'ē-ən) are, the acting performances that stood out for me, the ones that made me sit up, and sometimes stand up. So please find below the 2014 fosterIAN award nominations.
