Riveting, Enchanting, Clever, Absorbing
October 23rd, 2016

See it if You love intense, riveting, magical theater. It was like a fast-paced, steampunk Night Circus that you'll be left thinking about for weeks!

Don't see it if You're not a fan of death-defying circus acts.


Valeria B gave Sleep No More a 100

100
Confusing, Dizzying, Absorbing
October 25th, 2016

See it if you want to be immersed in the play and follow the actors into showing you the scenes

Don't see it if You want a more classical play and do no not want to walk around or up and down on stairs. Also if you are claustrophobic


JUDITH 12 gave Dracula (Hunger & Thirst Theatre) a 75

75
Riveting, Intense, Great acting, Absorbing
October 20th, 2016

See it if You would like to see Dracula transported to the US as a modern-day suave seducer of women.

Don't see it if You have no interest in the Dracula story or vampire lore.


Marisa L gave The Extraordinary Fall of the Four-Legged Woman (FringeNYC) a 88

88
Intelligent, Quirky, Great singing, Enchanting
October 21st, 2016

See it if You want to see freak-show difference shed in a slightly more idealistically-modern light and want to see some killer acapella realness.

Don't see it if You don't like acapella or one-act musicals. This is a great little nugget of art with a bright future.


AA gave Slumber a 89

89
Enchanting, Saucy, Quirky, Exciting, Invigorating
October 24th, 2016

See it if you crave a combo of high-flying circus acrobatics with a fun, if paper-thin, story. This show was a blast; I left HoY with a huge smile.

Don't see it if you only want the dynamic circus entertainment, since the storyline means you sit for stretches without aerials and acrobatics.
