Show-Score | By Ryan McCarthy | Oct 11, 2016

Every Tuesday we're turning the spotlight on some of our favorite member reviews of the week. Here are our favorites of shows that just opened, including reviews of "Oh, Hello on Broadway," "Holiday Inn," and "Stuffed!"

After a blistering summer, I know a lot of New Yorkers are grateful for the cool winds of fall, but theatergoers have another reason to be excited about the coming of autumn. It marks the end of the theater world's slow summer season, and means more show openings! Today we're looking at the very freshest offerings of this fall's theatrical harvest, all shows that just opened!

Raunchy, Great writing, Hilarious

See it if you're already a fan of John Mullaney and Nick Kroll, but more importantly see it if you don't know them. Oh, Hello is absolutely hilarious!

Don't see it if if you're looking for a traditional play. This is a loosely plotted vehicle for two very funny comedians and their incredibly raunchy humor.


JWilliams gave Holiday Inn, The New Irving Berlin Musical a 85

Enchanting, Great dancing, Great singing, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you want a thoroughly enjoyable, old-school song and dance musical. The script pays homage to the classic style but remains funny and fresh.

Don't see it if you need a show to be serious, dark, or do not like the classic musical-comedy style. This is pure good-hearted, joyous fun!


Brendon NYC gave Public Enemy a 77

Engaging, Resonant, Relevant, Thought-provoking

Thought-provoking, Riveting, Refreshing, Intelligent, Clever
October 7th, 2016

See it if you enjoy the exploration of "what if?" when it comes to adaptations of Shakespeare, and if you like to see a female-centric story.

Don't see it if it would bother you too much for famous lines from Hamlet to be spoken by other characters in different scenes than the original.


Suzanne Zee gave Wild Women of Planet Wongo a 90

90
Ambitious, Clever, Refreshing, Edgy, Hilarious
October 7th, 2016

See it if you enjoy an evening of total silliness! Plot is ridiculous, costumes absurd and choreographer did a marvelous job in an awkward space. FUN!

Don't see it if you cannot stand for 10 minutes or longer. There is some seating but the performers will tell you to move for some of the scenes.
