Wild Goose Dreams
East Village
Clever, Quirky, Refreshing, Resonant, Thought-provoking

See it if you want to see Asian-Americans add to the diversity of the stage to reflect the real world. This play was thought-provoking and poignant.

Don't see it if you want a linear plot or if you don't like metaphors.

Also The play makes you think about connection vs. connectivity. We are all... Read more Read less

1984 (Broadway)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Disappointing, Excruciating, Intense, Shocking

See it if you want to experience the book's content in a terrible but also bombastic way. The book is shocking in its own way, but this was gruesome.

Don't see it if you don't like intense dramas that have no problem displaying gore for its own sake.

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Great acting, Innovative

See it if you want to see a well-acted Shakespeare play given an updated treatment set in Miami with actors who speak some Spanish.

Don't see it if you want to see a "traditional" Shakespeare play or if you don't like Shakespearean plays.

First Daughter Suite
East Village
Ambitious, Disappointing, Great acting

See it if you like history and believe female-centric stories should be told.

Don't see it if you think you'll learn anything about the daughters (or even wives!) of former presidents.

Matilda
Midtown W
Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Great acting, Hilarious

See it if you want to see a classic children's story be given an amazing musical treatment.

Don't see it if you don't like to watch kids perform.

75
Indulgent, Masterful, Slow, Great acting

See it if you want to see John Lithgow showcase how he knows how to act; he acts out stories that were read to him as a child.

Don't see it if you want to hear substantial anecdotes about his life and how the stories he tells relate to it; he mentions his family too briefly.

During previews
Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Puppets, Raunchy

See it if you like "The Golden Girls" and shows like "Avenue Q" or "Hand to God", and puppets!

Don't see it if you don't like "The Golden Girls" or mild risque humor and puppets. (Who doesn't like puppets making raunchy jokes though?)

Avenue Q (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Entertaining, Hilarious, Quirky, Raunchy

See it if you like laughing and watching puppets doing things that you would be embarrassed to admit to doing.

Don't see it if you're a prude.

89
Ambitious, Entertaining, Romantic, Great singing

See it if you want to hear the music of the night

Don't see it if you hate Andrew Lloyd Webber and think his musicals are overrated

Sleep No More
Chelsea
Absorbing, Clever, Ambitious, Confusing, Edgy

See it if you want to see Macbeth presented in an interesting light.

Don't see it if you don't like avant-garde shows at all.

Perfect Crime
Midtown W
Confusing, Disappointing, Dizzying, Excruciating

See it if you want to leave confused even after the whodunit was supposedly solved.

Don't see it if you don't want to run to the Drama Book Shop immediately afterwards to search for the plot of the play.

70
Entertaining, Banal, Romantic

See it if you want to hear some cute songs.

Don't see it if you don't want to see a romance with little on-stage chemistry.

Absorbing, Intense, Ambitious, Great acting, Great singing

See it if you want to see a powerful story and a powerhouse singer perform it

Don't see it if you don't want to be moved by amazing performances

95
Absorbing, Great acting, Epic, Thought-provoking, Masterful

See it if you want to see two performances of a lifetime over the course of 7.5+ hours hours. Absolutely incredible acting and top-notch writing.

Don't see it if you don't know how to sit through a long play that examines LGBTQ issues, religion, morality, and the AIDS crisis. This is not light fare.

90
Great acting, Masterful, Must see, Resonant

See it if you like straight plays. This was an imaginative continuation of the Ibsen play, and so well-done at that.

Don't see it if you wan't to see a big, sweeping musical.

85
Great acting, Intelligent

See it if you want to see Allison Janney act in a character-driven piece.

Don't see it if you don't like shows addressing the class divide, gays, and racism in the 90s.

90
War Horse
Upper W Side
Absorbing, Ambitious, Great staging, Intelligent, Innovative

See it if you want to see some amazing puppetry skills mimicking a life-size horse telling a touching story about a boy and his friend (the horse).

Don't see it if you do not believe in the human-animal bond and can't bring yourself to believe a wooden horse puppet can double for a real horse.

85
Jersey Boys (NYC)
Midtown W
Entertaining, Great singing, Great acting

See it if you like the music of Franki Valli and the Four Seasons and like jukebox musicals; see it if you enjoy biographical shows.

Don't see it if you don't like jukebox musicals with music from the 60s.

90
Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Masterful, Riveting

See it if you like Cirque's shows or the circus in general. There are plenty of death-defying acts presented with artful gymnastics and acrobatics.

Don't see it if you don't want to be wowed by acrobats in gravity-defying sequences set to good music against cool staging. (No animals are in the show.)

80
Absorbing, Great acting, Original

See it if you're willing to learn about LGBT issues and what that can mean for family dynamics.

Don't see it if you don't like shows with serious subject matters and want light-hearted subject fare instead.

Absorbing, Great staging, Intelligent, Original, Must see

See it if you like thought-provoking, original, heartfelt storytelling that is staged in a super-imaginative way!

Don't see it if you don't like thought-provoking, original, heartfelt storytelling that is staged in a super-imaginative way. (Go see it!)

87
Absorbing, Entertaining, Profound, Great singing

See it if you want to see what life is all about

Don't see it if you are narrow-minded

Don't see it if you hate musicals.

Clever, Cliched, Hilarious, Raunchy

See it if you want a hilarious good time!

Don't see it if you're a prude.

Ambitious, Entertaining, Resonant, Romantic, Epic

See it if you like musicals and love an epic tale

Don't see it if you dislike musicals about love and redemption

Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Clever, Great singing

See it if happiness is a warm puppy and your kids will enjoy it

Don't see it if you don't believe kids can sing well (because these kids do)
