Top 10 Set Designs of 2011 

As we did last year, we're taking a look back at the best set designs to grace the city's stages, vast and small, in the last 12 months. They range from the immense (and immensely well-funded) Metropolitan Opera to tiny DIY spaces like the Bushwick Starr. They include notoriously visionary and visual artists and companies like The Wooster Group and Robert Wilson, but also relative newcomers like The Berserker Residents and Half Straddle.

(I should also take this moment to point out that, in the interest of variety I only included one Playwrights Horizons production on this list, but all three of their shows that I caught this year could have been included; if we gave an award for special achievements rewarding sustained excellence in set design, this year's would go to Playwrights Horizons.)
