Fringe 2018 - Returning Favorites

I'll post links here to all my posts about this year's list of returning favorites of mine from past Fringes and past Top 10/Top 20 lists, just so there's a handy place to find them all and you don't have to scroll through the whole blog to find them:

For starters, the past two years, I ended up doing a post-mortem at year's end which included a Top 10 of both Fringe and non-Fringe theater of the year.  I'll refer to them a bit, so here's a link to those posts to peruse as this new list comes together:
