These are the shows I will see over & over again:

-Cast in Bronze
-The Rogues
-bellydancers (any)
-Charming & Dashing (New this year at CoRF.  Had me laughing so hard it hurt)
-Cut, Thrust & Run
-Doktor Kaboom
-Queen Anne's Lace
-Thomas Wood, Pyrojuggler
-The Corsairs (Alas, they are no more.  They will be missed)

And, in general, I love a good human chess match.

well I suppose I would have to say

-arsene of paris
-great balls of fire/tastes like burning
-hey nunnie nunnie

but I guess i'm a little bit prone to them just because I'm in them or worked on the same stage as them... I'm so lucky! They're all great sows!

I love Hey Nunnie Nunnie, and I have learned to sing and play "Five Constipated Men In the Bible" on my autoharp for the residents at the nursing facility where I work, in tribute to the Sisters.

I also really like Iris & Rose, Queen Anne's Lace, and will miss the Corsairs terribly.  Oh, yes, and the Rogues. 

I have never seen the Brobdingagian Bards in person, yet, but I've heard their recordings and can't wait to actually see them somewhere.

Lady Morna,
     The feelings are *very* mutual for all of us - we fell in love with the residents, staff, and facility in Bowie and cannot wait to get the opportunity to return to you all once more.  You are all treasures beyond measure in my books.

A lot of it depends on just what I'm in the mood for that day, but I do have some "must see" shows:

Iris & Rose
Christophe the Insultor
Sound & Fury

with close runner-ups:

Arsene
The Other Brothers (who I think only perform at TRF, based on a comment one made when I saw them opening day)
Ded Bob

Though, to be honest, I have yet to see a show at TRF that I outright didn't like. I'll probably post an addendum to this after I've been to another faire (most likely Scarby).
