Vote for the Top Ten Caribbean Theatre Classics

Top Ten Caribbean Theatre ClassicsFirst, give thanks to all those who submitted your choices to the Top Ten Caribbean Theatre Classics which closed on Monday, May 25, 2009, @ 4:30 pm.

The voting begins today and will end on Friday, June 5, 2009, @ 4:30 pm.

I’ve posted the list of with the number of votes here and they are listed alphabetically here. I have organized the voting based on number of votes. In the case of a tie, if a playwright was mentioned at least twice, then s/he was “bumped up” the list. I realize that some may disagree with the voting methods, but this is not a definitive list. Unlike the method for submission, the voting method does not give me the option of unlimited choices, and this just seemed to be the most equitable method of choosing the plays.

These are the final choices from the submissions. I am very interested in any comments about this process and especially about the plays that made the final cut.

Please do not be intimidated by the list or if you haven't read all 12 plays.
