Closing another season of great comedy with the annual "The Best of Shadowbox Live" show isn't unusual, but this year's "Best of" marks the final show at the troupe's Easton location. The company will move to its new home in the Brewery District in August, and that puts some pressure on this final show to be brilliant.

Closing another season of great comedy with the annual "The Best of Shadowbox Live" show isn't unusual, but this year's "Best of" marks the final show at the troupe's Easton location. The company will move to its new home in the Brewery District in August, and that puts some pressure on this final show to be brilliant.

Luckily, it wildly succeeds. The folks at Shadowbox have condensed a stellar year into an even better compilation show.

One of the year's best sketches brings together two great opera divas, Julie Klein and Stephanie Shull, to perform some of rock's sexiest songs.

Another highlight is the awkward hilarity that comes as two dorky teenagers (David Whitehouse and Jimmy Mak) try to help their friend (Jerrod Roberts) deal with the complications of dating in the age of Facebook and Twitter.

The show's best skit, though, is probably "Dr. Mystery vs. Bridezilla," in which a doctor (Whitehouse), his assistant (Mak) and the Fair Maiden (Katy Psenicka) help their friend track down his rampaging bride. Pay special attention to Roberts as the scene-stealing sound effects guy.

There's not a weak song in the musical lineup. From Roberts' smooth version of "Honky Tonk Woman" to Amy Lay's beautifully mysterious take on "Hotel California" to JT Walker III and Stev Guyer's powerful staging of "Comfortably Numb," every song ranks among the troupe's best.

Ending the show with the entire ensemble singing "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" - from their much-acclaimed "Back to the Garden" show - may be the perfect way to say goodbye to a space that has seen the company grow into one of Columbus' greatest assets.
