It was the year of #MeToo, as this one story seemed to dominate the pop culture landscape of 2017. Victims came out saying “enough is enough” and called out their attackers and predators by name.

It was also a year of important stories being told on television and in films. We honored the voices of women, people of color and the LGBTQ community in movies like Moonlight and The Life and Death of Marsha P. Johnson, and on shows like When We Rise and Master of None. Plus we got Will & Grace back!

Marian: Lost in Fiction
Blue venue, find showtimes

The vibrant and enthusiastic group from Phoenix Tears Productions takes popular fictional novels and popular songs, and combines them into a musical mash-up of love, singing, literature, pop culture, Disney, Greek mythology and kick lines—yes, there was a kick line at one point.

Marian: Lost in Fiction is a cute show about an assistant librarian named Marian who gets knocked out from an intense thunderstorm and ends up in a dreamland. In this dreamland, all these fictional novel characters are messed up and not in the right places, and the Cheshire Cat, who greets her when she wakes up, says it is up to Marian to fix it.

“We were never being boring,” Pet Shop Boys singer Neil Tennant slyly ruminated on 1990’s release Behaviour. “We were never being bored.”

Another year has wrapped, and that means it’s time to look back at what made 2014 memorable in the world of pop culture. So what were the ABCs of 2014?

Ass: Kim Kardashian got cheeky for Paper magazine, Charlie Hunnam’s backside went front and center on Sons of Anarchy, and Ben Affleck even flashed moviegoers in Gone Girl. But getting the most tail this year was everyone’s ears, thanks to Meghan Trainor (“All About That Bass”), Jennifer Lopez (“Booty”), and Nikki Minaj (“Anaconda”), who assaulted playlists with their ass-tastic songs.
