Best of Madison 2014 Arts & Entertainment

Behind each Best of Madison winner are fierce and loyal fans who get out the vote for their favorite artists, performers and personalities.

This year, they cheered on several cultural heavyweights, from Overture Center for top performance venue and the Madison Children’s Museum as best museum to Sundance Cinemas and High Noon Saloon, respectively, for best movie theater and live music venue.

But, really, it’s the people who make our entertainment scene sizzle. Like spoken-word artists and poets Rob DZ and Fabu who entertain and challenge us with the power of their words. And all-around good guy—and pretty awesome basketball coach—Bo Ryan, who earned favorite local celebrity status again this year. And the many contributors to American Players Theatre, Forward Theater Company and the Madison Symphony Orchestra—2014’s performing arts group winners—who turn their passions into art that the entire community can enjoy. – Katie Vaughn
