Gently Down the Stream
East Village
Delightful, Great acting, Riveting, Entertaining, Great writing

See it if You don't want to miss Harvey Fierstein's "must see" performance. This is such an entertaining and relatable show for anyone.

Don't see it if You can't handle 100 minute plays without intermission. But the show's gay themes would not make anybody uncomfortable in this day and age.

Also I enjoyed the play much more than I thought I would.

Such Nice Shoes
Midtown W
Delightful, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent, Resonant

See it if You appreciate a mega talented writer, actor , and mimic. Heart-felt and hilarious I loved it.

Don't see it if You prefer staying an anonymous member of the audience. (The actress is big on direct eye contact as she tells her story. It's charming.)

Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Intelligent, Must see

See it if You want to see a particularly masterful, yet hilarious, performance by Laurie Metcalf joined by the three cast members who hold their own.

Don't see it if You are expecting a period set. Yes, the staging is inspired (as are the scene breaks), but the stage? She is bare.

Also If you never read or forgot the cast and plot of Ibsen s A Doll's Hous... Read more Read less

For a previous production
Clever, Entertaining, Hilarious, Intelligent, Raunchy

See it if You relish the opportunity to see a wicked funny and talented person give you a rapid-fire irreverent history of Latinos.

Don't see it if You had your heart set on learning more about Julius Caesar.

Cagney
Midtown W
Delightful, Entertaining, Romantic, Original, Nostalgic fun

See it if If you want a nostalgic experience that marvelously recreates the talent, spirit, and greatness of James Cagney.and has good tap dancing.

Don't see it if You weren't much of a Cagny fan and not interested in learning more about him.

Great acting, Raunchy, Hilarious, Intelligent

See it if You love theatre for snappy dialogue; well-drawn, yet quirky, characters; and unlikely settings of kindness and connection.

Don't see it if You are claustrophobic, prudish, or otherwise disinclined to find meaning in fairy tales.

Oslo (Broadway)
Upper W Side
Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if You want to see an authentic and vivid reenactment of how a visionary Norway married couple set the stage for an epic peace agreement.

Don't see it if You need more than dialogue tracking the trajectory of a treaty negotiation, and find the posturing (while entertaining) repetitive.

Also Great ensemble cast. Effective closing monologue by the wonderful Jeff... Read more Read less

Samara
Midtown W
Ambitious, Confusing, Edgy, Profound, Slow

See it if You appreciate high quality experimental theatre, some outstanding performances and wonderful scoring that held it together.

Don't see it if You have trouble with ambiguous dialogue, even if you are spiritually-oriented. This play was tough for me to digest and find its message.

Also I saw Samara in early previews.

Ambitious, Clever, Disappointing, Raunchy, Great singing

See it if You appreciate the ways in which a broadway remake can add new dimensions to an original beloved film.

Don't see it if You are not forgiving if some of the show's ambitious effects fall flat.

Also The two stars are marvelous and the minor star songs in Act II really ... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing

See it if U think bway is at its best with well written & well acted dramas that explore the choices we make & how we can make ourselves better.

Don't see it if You don't believe that airing family grievances and misgivings makes for good theatre no matter how well written or well acted.

See it if You appreciate well-written and clever lyrics that inspire us to be open to new adventures no matter how old we are.

A Life

Intense, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Great staging, Relevant

See it if You feel alone in the big city and want to experience a gentle dose of reality from a first rate cast.

Don't see it if You prefer intellectual plays over experiential ones.
