The 2013 fosterIAN nominations

Sifting through 300+ productions has proved harder work than I thought, though a much welcomed reminder of just how much I managed to see this year. Though I have used the label 'best', the categories should probably best be considered 'favourite' as that is what the fosterIANs (fos-tîr'ē-ən) are, the acting performances that stood out for me, the ones that made me sit up, and sometimes stand up. So please find below the 2013 fosterIAN award nominations.
