Big musical number (list of shows seen)

To give you the idea of the scale of my theater-going activities, below are a tally and a list of (as far as I know) all the shows I've seen since September 2007 (plus one Broadway show I saw as a kid--the original production of A Chorus Line, late in its run). Some shows I have seen multiple times. A few of them a thoroughly excessive number of times. (Should I admit to which ones? Hmmmmmm, maybe later.)

2007 (September-December): 11
2008: 124
2009: 95
2010: 72
2011: 102
2012: ???
