Best Place to See Live Local Theater: Performance Network Theatre; 120 E. Huron St., Ann Arbor; 734-663-0681; performancenetwork.org

Last year’s readers choice of the Hilberry Theatre took us by surprise, especially considering metro Detroit’s number of professional theaters, like Ann Arbor’s Performance Network or the Detroit Rep. But this year, our readers picked a professional house. “Perf Net” has been active for more than three decades, has produced a number of Tony Award-winning shows, and puts together numerous year-round must-see programs like the multi-night staged reading series Fireside New Play Festival and more.
