Entertaining, Funny, Disappointing, Delightful, Enchanting

See it if you enjoy an immersive theatre experience with roving musicians and scenes taking place all over the venue, bringing you into the story.

Don't see it if you are a Josh Groban fan because Oak is a different actor and brings a different sentiment to the role or if you love "War and Peace."

Sad, Enchanting, Great acting, Absorbing, Delightful

See it if theatre can move you to appreciate love in all its manifest forms & the heartbreak of those who are unable to open their hearts and see it.

Don't see it if you are easily offended by themes which threaten your entrenched concepts of religion and God, what your consider moral or are anti-Semitic.

Midtown W
Absorbing, Great acting, Intense, Refreshing, Perplexing

See it if you are willing to explore the human condition in a May-December relationship with all pre-conceived notions off the table.

Don't see it if you're not able to appreciate that older men may be as stupid as younger men when it comes to taking a leap of faith towards love.

Midtown W
Revelatory, Intelligent, Refreshing, Thought-provoking, Unusual

See it if you want to consider what it would be to lose your country, your home and your way of life and to be a refugee.

Don't see it if you have preconceived notions about the Viet Nam War or if you believe American need to make apologies for "losing' the war.

Something Rotten!
Midtown W
Satirical, Outrageous, Hilarious, Rapidfire, Entertaining

See it if can appreciate a sendup of modern Broadway that uses a truly funny book intent on taking you on a ride back to a re-imagined Renaissance.

Don't see it if you can't enjoy satire, hate musical in particular and have absolutely no knowledge of Broadway history.

95
Enchanting, Unique, Riveting, Spectacular, Surprising

See it if want to be transported into the mind of a young man who will charm you in unimaginable ways; the set design is absolutely incredible.

Don't see it if you have a shoddy imagination and no empathy for those who see the world differently or have a learning disability.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Riveting, Compelling, Groundbreaking, Revolutionary, Satisfying

See it if you loved Tony winner "In the Heights" and appreciate Lin-Manuel Miranda, Andy Blankenbuehler and Thomas Kail for all they bring to a show.

Don't see it if you cannot imagine a Broadway show where hip-hop might be able to advance a plot and engage an audience through verse and choreography.

Waitress (NYC)
Midtown W
Delightful, Funny, Superb, Emotional, Empowering

See it if you are not familiar with Sara Bareilles' beautiful melodies. These songs enhance and complement the work on stage in myriad ways.

Don't see it if you don't like beautiful singing and an uplifting story about dealing with life's vicissitudes.

89
Entertaining, Funny, Clever, Offbeat, Moving

See it if you can be moved by the simple story of how Newfoundlanders responded to 38 planes of travelers forced to land at their airport during 9/11.

Don't see it if you're not someone who appreciates different cultures and have empathy for simple people caught up and responding to a great tragedy.

96
Great acting, Moving, Funny, Insightful, Enchanting

See it if you're in the mood for incredible performances with beautiful music by Benj Pasek & Justin Paul & insightful book by Steven Levenson.

Don't see it if you don't appreciate the power of social networking or how a lie said openly or concealed can have unseen ramifications.

The Front Page
Midtown W
Slow, Funny, Cliched, Dated, Delightful

See it if you understand that the first act is mostly exposition, that the action won't begin until Nathan Lane's character finds his mark on stage.

Don't see it if you dislike Nathan Lane or his over the top humor and can't appreciate a large ensemble cast that carries a lot of the weight of the play.

91
Terrific choreography, Superb singing, Well executed scenic design, Great singing, Tremendous costumes

See it if you love Gloria Estefan's music specifically or Latin music in general

Don't see it if you are intolerant of different kinds of music and cultures.

90
Moving, Smart, Connected, Heartfelt, Beloved

See it if you want to see Danny Burstein's fabulous Tevye. He and the other cast members make this revival one of the best shows running on Broadway.

Don't see it if you don't have a sense of family, don't like brilliant lyrics and beautiful melodies and are not in the mood to be throughly entertained.

92
Powerful, Funny, Entertaining, Emotional, Clever

See it if you have no preconceived notions about what gender is supposed to be about or if you appreciate what it means to be passionate in life.

Don't see it if you can't imagine a grown man donning three-feet of spectacular leathery sex or that vision could transform a business into a niche success.

Funny, Entertaining, Engrossing, Absorbing, Kickass

See it if you've seen the movie, love Jack Black, want to be enthralled by talented young musicians or just want to kick back and rock out.

Don't see it if you're not impressed by kids who can play better than most adults or a leading performance by Alex Brightman that cuts like an axe.
