Folks who shared results this month include actors, producers, and audience members.  Thank you Lauren Bloom, Alona Bach, Roselyn Hallett, Kathleen Antonia, Sofia Ahmad, Ray Renati, Jeanette Harrison, and Melissa Hillman.

Thanks for reading.  If you are working on a show, or see some theater in December, please share the results with me so I can add it to this list.  I’m looking forward to a Christmas Carol by Christmas Carol comparison, if I get those results!

Look for another round of results between Jan 1st and Jan 5th.
