Entertaining

See it if You love the movie. It's almost a direct transfer. We expected to hate it. We kinda liked it.

Don't see it if You haven't seen other better productions. This isn't a great show, but worth seeing as a TKTS option if you've seen everything else.

Great acting, Great writing, Thought-provoking, Great music

See it if You want to see the best show of the year. See it if Katrina Lenk is still in the production. She was incredible. The music is also great.

Don't see it if You want to see a huge, big broadway lights type production. This is a small show about people. No bells and whistles.

Ambitious, Great staging, Disappointing, Overrated

See it if you want to catch a glimpse at the future of Broadway productions in terms of set design and atmosphere. Some good songs, and good acting.

Don't see it if You want an entertaining show. The novelty of interacting with the actors fades quickly, and you're left with a boring, repetitive show.

Great acting, Delightful, Emotional

See it if Ben Platt is still the lead. One of the best performances I've ever seen on stage. Good show with fun songs. Best show of the year.

Don't see it if Profanity and teenage suicide upsets you.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Masterful, Must see, Great writing

See it if you like history, hip hop, or musicals in general. There's something for everybody to like here. Music and lyrics are pure genius.

Don't see it if You like great staging and choreography. The show left something to be desired in terms of execution by the director and choreographer.

War Horse
Upper W Side
Ambitious, Enchanting, Great staging, Slow

See it if you want to see great puppetry and great staging.

Don't see it if you want a fast paced story. This play has a good story, but it is extremely slow at times.

Midtown W
Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing

See it if you enjoy great acting and great writing. Alfred Molina and Eddie Redmayne are at their best.

Don't see it if you don't care much about art, or want a quick, entertaining musical. This is a somewhat slow play that requires you to think a bit.

Avenue Q (NYC)

Clever, Delightful, Great writing, Hilarious, Must see

See it if you can't get tickets to BOM & are between the ages of 18 and 35. The show can be enjoyed by all ages, but relates more to the younger crowd

Don't see it if You're looking for a large production. *UPDATE* I had to bring the score down. They've changed the show and it's not the same. Disappointed.

Ambitious, Disappointing, Great acting

See it if Want to see one of the best showstoppers you'll ever see.

Don't see it if You want a full show. After "A Musical", the show never gets going again. Boring songs, and a boring book that had the potential to be great

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Must see

See it if You have kids and like the movie. This is one of the best shows on Broadway, but if you don't have kids, there are a few better options.

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Banal, Ambitious, Great staging, Insipid, Overrated

See it if If this is going to be your first Broadway show. For Broadway veterans, you may enjoy a couple of the songs, and the size of the production.

Don't see it if you can only see one show. There are many shows better than this. The songs get stale quickly and the show drags in act 1. Act 2 redeems.

Great staging, Ambitious

See it if You're a fan of the cartoon or have kids. We were surprised by how much we enjoyed it after going in with low expectations. It was okay.

Don't see it if The show is geared for families and kids in some parts. It gets a little silly and the plot is thin. Don't see it if you want a serious show

Absorbing, Great staging, Entertaining, Magical, Must see

See it if You want to be entertained with a great story and great effects. It helps if you're a HP fan. Didn't expect to cry. My wife and I both did.

Don't see it if You don't have a lot of time. It's a long show (about 5 hours). The hours fly by, but it still takes a lot of time to see it.

Ambitious, Enchanting

See it if you want to see an entertaining show with good music and a great, true story.

Don't see it if you need or want an intermission. The show is one act and does get a little slow for a short while, but picks right back up. Good show.

Dated, Great acting

See it if You enjoy classic musicals. The music, as always, was great. The cast was good enough (Bernstein was great). Not the best version of fiddler

Don't see it if You like happy endings or get bored easily. If you're looking for a modern, fast-paced musical, this is not it. Set design was amateurish.

Anything Goes
Midtown W
Delightful, Funny

See it if you love traditional broadway shows with great choreography, and memorable music. Anything Goes stands the test of time.

Don't see it if you dislike classic, traditional musicals and/or musical comedies.

Disappointing, Funny, Excruciating, Quirky, Raunchy

See it if you have no other options. This is a very small show with mediocre jokes and very simple music and choreography.

Don't see it if you want the Broadway experience. This show reminded me of something you would find in Las Vegas, which I consider second rate entertainment

Chelsea
Absorbing, Great staging, Masterful, Must see, Original

See it if you want an experience like no other. This is a fully immersive experience and worth every penny, whether you follow the narrative or not.

Don't see it if you aren't very mobile. This show requires a lot of walking, and sometimes running to keep up with the actors.

Absorbing, Delightful, Entertaining, Must see, Great writing

See it if you are not set on seeing a traditional Broadway show. This is a jukebox musical about and featuring music from The Four Seasons. Great show

Don't see it if You want to see original music and great dance choreography. The show gets just a tad bit slow, but that's not a good reason to skip it.

Enchanting, Great writing, Must see, Refreshing, Original

See it if you love great music and great original stories. Get ready for an emotional journey with great acting. Must see! Best musical of 2015!

Don't see it if you have a short attention span. This is a beautiful show about real people, and listening to dialogue is key in fully enjoying the show.
