Entertaining, Funny, Lighthearted

See it if You want something highly entertaining, a fresh take on the "jukebox" musical genre, and more adult-oriented comedy.

Don't see it if You are uptight, have a problem with LBGTQ humor and narratives, hate any sort of Shakespearean-style dialogue.

Riveting, Must see, Great acting

See it if Whether you love Harry Potter or not, this show is undeniably spectucular. Magic, great acting, great set, so many surprises along the way.

Don't see it if You are so fixated on the story you can get past it. Even people who didn't like the book version of the script should enjoy the show IMHO.

Waitress (NYC)
Midtown W
Delightful, Hilarious, Refreshing

See it if You want to be entertained, you like Sara Bareilles, you enjoy catchy pop songs strung together with a nice moving plot.

Don't see it if You are super sensitive to risque scenes, you only like the most massive production values. Overall I would say it is a crowd pleaser.

Child friendly, Silly, Entertaining

See it if You have young children and want something harmless that the whole family can enjoy. This is a good show for kids too young for Broadway.

Don't see it if If you don't have kids with you, or your kids are older. It's a fun silly show, but there's not too much here for adults without children.

82
Cats
Midtown W
Entertaining, Enchanting, Fluffy

See it if You love Cats. It's Cats! Great dancing, phenomenal cast. You may need to open your mind to enjoy, but personally I think it's excellent.

Don't see it if You hate Cats. Aside from a few minor updates, this IS CATS. If you hated the original, you'll probably hate this one.

Clever, Hilarious, Great acting

See it if You want to see a hilarious female-driven take on this problematic Shakespeare classic

Don't see it if You're an actual mysogynist, or if you can't bear Shakespeare being tampered with.

97
Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Original, Intelligent

See it if You want to see a captivating, highly original, big-budget play (not a musical) that pushed the boundaries. This is a really great story.

Don't see it if If you absolutely hate plays you may not like it (you also might love it because it isn't typical).

Avenue Q (NYC)
Midtown W
Hilarious, Great writing, Great staging, Must see, Original

See it if Despite being raunchy (not for young children), this show is surprisingly well suited for a vast audience. Just go see it.

Don't see it if There are themes of sex and alcohol, so the young children should be left at home. Otherwise have fun!

The Humans
Midtown W
Profound, Refreshing, Intense, Masterful, Intelligent

See it if You love American plays, you like dark comedies, family dramas, you've seen a lot of shows and want something a little more intimate.

Don't see it if You hate plays, you're in town and want to see a big show, not for children. If you like plays, this is a great one.

Something Rotten!
Midtown W
Hilarious, Funny, Entertaining, Clever, Delightful

See it if You like Shakespeare and jokes about him. You like big musical numbers (tap dancing), the classic music format with lots of laughs.

Don't see it if Unless you only like serious theatre, you'll probably like this show. It's very funny with great production song and dance numbers.

96
Absorbing, Enchanting, Great staging, Epic, Intense

See it if You love classic musicals, you love spectacles. This show has a thrust stage, so if you love immersive theatre, this is excellent.

Don't see it if You find classic musicals boring. It may not be good for small children. Overall this is a brilliant show with near perfect staging.

Aladdin (Broadway)
Midtown W
Entertaining, Funny, Overrated, Quirky, Fluffy

See it if You have children, LOVE Disney, and want to see something with lots of special effects. It's very similar to the movie, and for families.

Don't see it if You want something with substance, you are on a limited budget. This is well-done, but not Broadway's best by far!

95
Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Delightful, Enchanting, Great staging, Resonant

See it if You want big numbers, huge sets, and interesting story, and great female performances. There are many show-stopping numbers in this show.

Don't see it if You don't like musical cheesiness, hate family shows, and only care about a show being provocative.

Tuck Everlasting
Midtown W
Delightful, Fluffy, Entertaining, Funny, Profound

See it if If you like something light-hearted, have children (especially young girls), you love the book. You like dancing musicals.

Don't see it if You can't stand musical cheesiness. You hate dancing. You loathe children. This is a fluff show, but a well-done one.

Blackbird
Midtown W
Profound, Thought-provoking, Intense, Great acting, Riveting

See it if You enjoy a serious play with excellent acting. If you like seeing big stars on stage. You want your heart strings tugged at.

Don't see it if You want to see a spectacle - it's a very simple show, but everything is top notch. You want something light-hearted and fun.

78
Funny, Overrated, Entertaining

See it if This is a well-done, entertaining show. You're not going to have a bad time at this one.

Don't see it if You may be disappointed if you have extremely high expectations. It's not a bad show, but it is overrated in my opinion.

93
Great singing, Masterful, Delightful

See it if You love jukebox musicals, Carole King, you want a good show to take the family or parents, you just want to have a great time!

Don't see it if Even if you HATE jukebox musicals (me!), this is one of the good ones. I can't see why anyone would dislike this show.

75
Great singing, Indulgent, Entertaining

See it if You love Frozen. Or you have kids who love it.

Don't see it if You are looking for something original. This is a well-done production, but it's just another frame by frame Disney adaptation.

Absorbing, Immersive, Original, Intelligent, Ambitious

See it if You are interested in new theatrical experiences, chances are you've never seen anything like this. You like audio and great storytelling.

Don't see it if You are easily bored, it felt a little long. This has a wider appeal than you would think, so I would say give it a try. Great talent!!

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Epic, Must see

See it if You want to see a show that actually lives up to the hype. This is truly a masterpiece, perhaps one of the greatest pieces of theatre ever

Don't see it if You are cynical and hate everything, or if it requires you to get a second mortgage on your house to see. No show is worth thousands $ IMHO

97
Exquisite, Funny, Resonant, Must see, Great singing

See it if You want to hear some of the best singing you've every heard. Period. This is a beautiful production, and though simple, highly entertaining

Don't see it if I can't think of anyone this wouldn't appeal to. It's a 5 star production with a phenomenal cast. It's funny, emotional... Beautiful.

Matilda
Midtown W
Enchanting, Entertaining, Funny, Great staging, Original

See it if You have children, love the story, can understand American children trying to speak with a British accent. You like British-style humor.

Don't see it if You struggle understanding English, you hate family musicals, you don't like the story. It's a wonderful show but not everyone will like it.

93
Entertaining, Must see, Original, Hilarious, Great writing

See it if You're an adult who can handle something very raunchy. You want to laugh hysterically and aren't easily offended (otherwise you will be).

Don't see it if This is the most not for children show on Broadway currently, probably ever. If you're sensitive about religious jokes and raunchiness.

For a previous production
Jersey Boys (NYC)
Midtown W
Overrated, Entertaining, Great music, Indulgent, Cliched

See it if You love jukebox musicals, the Four Seasons, you're new to musicals, you don't normally like musicals. Good for men who don't like musicals.

Don't see it if You hate jukebox musicals, you've seen a lot of shows and want something more original. This is well-done, but hardly the best Broadway has.

98
Absorbing, Great staging, Great writing, Great acting, Masterful

See it if You want a new experience in theatre, you are okay balling you eyes out, you are open minded about sexuality.

Don't see it if Not for young kids (difficult concepts, emotional). You are closed minded. This is a small intimate show, and not a spectacle. You will cry.

90
Must see, Riveting, Original, Great staging, Ambitious

See it if You've never seen it and have money to spend. You have children, you love the movie and music, you want to see what the hype is about.

Don't see it if You hate spectacles, and Disney, you're on a tight budget. This is a touristy show, and there are lots of other great shows that are cheaper

85
Absorbing, Great staging, Indulgent, Romantic, Original

See it if You love a spectacle, melodic music and haven't seen it yet! This show still holds up, and will for a while. Worth seeing.

Don't see it if If you're in NYC and want to see something you can only find here, see something else. There are many good shows besides this.

95
Clever, Hilarious, Masterful, Must see, Refreshing

See it if You love physical comedy with some amazingly inventive staging. You like seeing off-broadway gems, and revivals done differently.

Don't see it if You only like big shows with huge sets and numbers. This is a small show, but extremely big in scope. If you don't like blue grass/country.

Bright Star
Midtown W
Delightful, Great staging, Great acting, Original, Refreshing

See it if You like blue grass music - the music is phenomenal. You enjoy seeing shows with simple sets yet interesting staging, it's very innovative.

Don't see it if You only like huge flashy shows, this is not The Lion King.. If you hate country or blue grass music you won't like this.

Entertaining, Hilarious, Great acting, Great staging, Delightful

See it if You love a well-made romantic comedy. This is a great option for a date night, or even a single night! It's a wonderful production.

Don't see it if If you hate light-hearted fare you might not like it, but it's so well crafted I can't imagine anyone not liking this show.
