Show-Score | By Ryan McCarthy | Dec 20, 2016

Every Tuesday we're turning the spotlight on some of our favorite member reviews. Here are our picks for the week for some of the top shows that won't be with us much longer — shows like "Ride the Cyclone," "The Wolves," and "Matilda!"

They say all good things must come to an end, and that is certainly true for these top rated shows, all of which are closing in the next few weeks. So if you were planning on catching one, or if one of these member reviews makes you want to catch one, now's the time, because there's not much time left!

See it if you can imagine Rocky Horror meets A Chorus Line in the afterlife. Six teens die on a roller coaster, sing and dance about life and love

Don't see it if you don't want to be uplifted, laugh, and be amazed by crazy talented kids, or don't like off-Bway, small theater, dark humor

Smart, Funny, Resonant, Great staging, Delightful

See it if you want to explore life/the world through the eyes of a group of bright, likeable teenage girls. An ode to women, friendship & soccer.

Don't see it if overlapping voices and teenage chatter annoy you. However, the way individual personalities are revealed amid all the noise is a true feat!


Megan M. gave Matilda a 79

79
Extravagant, Family friendly, Entertaining, Great staging, Magical
December 15th, 2016

See it if you love Dahl's book, talented children actors, entertaining antagonists, darkly funny songs, big numbers, and a story with a lot of heart.

Don't see it if you dislike the book, children performers, large casts, and chaotic scenes. You don't understand Britishisms or take things too literally.


MCohen6277 gave Something Rotten! a 74

Great staging, Great singing, Hilarious, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you want to shut off your brain and enjoy two hours of Shakespeare and Broadway jokes with delightful tunes and great production values.

Don't see it if you want something to chew on or don't care for the razzle dazzle of the "traditional" Broadway musical.


Mary GB gave His Royal Hipness Lord Buckley a 90

Good fun, Brilliant, Relevant, Masterful, Intelligent
December 19th, 2016

See it if you enjoy a cozy night club setting, want to listen to a master story teller & his hip news man, accompanied by fantastic musicians.

Don't see it if don't have the energy to pay attention as the stories are intertwined with history and politics; or prefer a regular audience setting.
