If you like this person's taste, follow him or her!
See it if Interesting story about a woman who deserves to be better known. Female supporting lead especially excellent
Don't see it if Over 2 hours long. Second half not a good as first, ending with dated melodrama.
See it if Clever lyrics but excessively long (2 hours) .Deals largely with negative aspects ( adultery, drugs etc) and not tradition or “Jewish” theme
Don't see it if Want insights or more than mere sometimes clever wordplay. Could/ should be much better. Some songs go on and on and on.
See it if Really want to see large impressive sets moved around. Opposite of those companies that accomplish so much with little.
Don't see it if Want to be involved with people or story. Want something fresh and current
See it if So Entranced by the music, that took me a while to be involved in nuanced story. Well written, excellent acting-particularly brothers
Don't see it if Want simple singular story and clear bad guys ( although there are some here).
See it if Charming fun evening. Some portions hilarious. Be sure to leave time to see art exhibits in same building
Don't see it if You don’t go to Queens . Want more developed production.
See it if Fun and fascinating. Brilliant evocation of Bella while never wearing a dress. History lesson- some I did not know ( or maybe just forgot)
Don't see it if Do not like one person plays.
See it if Witty thoughtful show about place, expectations and disappointments. Portions were overdone and the girl was too cool and savvy for her age
Don't see it if Uncomfortable about interracial gay couple.
See it if You know little about the artists and do not mind poor quality “audio visuals” and an annoying lecturer. I could not wait to Escape.
Don't see it if You expect excellent ( or at least, decent ) quality visuals in a production about artists. Dislike annoying repetitive commentary.
See it if Great acting, thought provoking show, but sometimes I could not follow the differences among the arguments proposed
Don't see it if Do not like Intense intellectual exercise.
See it if Charming, sometimes funny show but nothing new. A pretty girl that talks and talks about self without realizing most have suffered worse
Don't see it if Looking for meaning, drama or great theater- not even that funny.
See it if Like quirky ,absurd, almost slapstick production with a few ( too few) good moments. Even the swearing is repetitive.
Don't see it if Like Chekhov or expect insights
See it if Like well acted presentation of a unique woman and insight into the sad, painful and also humorous reality of Negro Baseball Leagues
Don't see it if Want a usual big Broadway show. Shows the injustice and pain more effectively than many of the angry shows.
See it if Explicit, raunchy funny situations, punctuated by a few some special moments of insights. Not clear what play wants to do or be
Don't see it if Object to excessive obscenity and over the top sexual situations.
See it if Charming piece of post WW2 political maneuvering— funny how relevant now. Good acting
Don't see it if Somewhat slow until Mary comes on scene. Certain portrayals are excessively subservient and objectionable

Don't see it if Do not like one person show. Looking for something relaxing
See it if want evening of excellent music and don’t care about script, acting or story. Interesting visuals- but for many, not clear what or why.
Don't see it if You are a Toscanini fan and want to learn about him.Instead, poorly portrayed “one liners,”absent of any of Maestro’s charisma or passion.
See it if Like intelligent humor.First hour very good-sometimes brilliant—but last 15 minutes falters badly.Suggest contest for better State 1 liners
Don't see it if Hold strong political beliefs and cannot take any criticism of them , however accurate
See it if Intelligent nuanced story with excellent singing. Two of numbers were special enough to go just for them. Believable characters
Don't see it if Expect big production numbers. Issue with hearing some of characters
See it if Somewhat humorous cliche retelling of old story. Unusual only in its taking place in Ghana.
Don't see it if Looking for theater to say or do something innovative. Disappointed that overly cliched and no “ special” moment
See it if Like disjointed frenetic paced nostalgic visit through 1945-1969. Possibly better if you are involved with Canadian hockey and issues
Don't see it if Prefer insight or get confused by rapid changes of accents. Prefer longer sections of key songs of time and not in costumes that seem parody
See it if Funny well acted 2 character play. Educational and enjoyable.
Don't see it if Only want big Broadway productions- otherwise, cannot think of a reason.
See it if Don’t mind lots of potential, performed with great earnestness but never quite makes it. First act particularly weak.
Don't see it if Don’t like basically one person shows. Very relevant material but done much better elsewhere
See it if Well acted play and intellectual commentary- although in some places I wished there was either less Mishnah commentary or more explanation
Don't see it if Madoff and his motivations disgust you. Or want more straightforward exposition
See it if Well done story about women I had not known about.
Don't see it if Never really get to identify with one of leads— not sure if s rift or her personality. Nor is the reason for the infamous raised arm clear.
See it if Intelligent overly long well acted play that, despite pretense, is not “new”. Self indulgent
Don't see it if You do not want another play about the HIV crisis and relationship angst.
See it if Very funny ( oddly, maybe too many jokes) story about recognizable people/problems. Considerable nudity- some unnecessary for story.
Don't see it if Nudity ( mostly full male) on stage bothers you.
See it if Like sweet memoir with theme of hope and forgiveness.
Don't see it if Meandering memoir. Sometimes not clear what is point, other than the value of forgiveness.
See it if Like Shaw. Good acting, although I have seen several of them do much better.
Don't see it if Expect more development and nuance. Cleopatra particularly weak- does not show Development from girl to Queen ( except for costume).
See it if Funny charming intelligent rapper/comedian. Some parts much better than others- but that is nature of freestyle. Best when just talking
Don't see it if Don’t like rap at all. Prefer more scripted presentation
See it if Really like the songs and don’t mind excessively loud singing, stupid story, surprisingly weak dancing and repetitive special effects
Don't see it if Would like to understand the words, continuous loud noise bothers you. Some of the leads deserve better.
See it if Funny raunchy entertaining- sometimes repetitious and unnecessarily long. Two loong intermissions, likely for selling more drinks
Don't see it if Over the top and lots of barely covered bodies bother you. Annoying excessively long intermissions— one should be enough.
See it if Want an extremely enjoyable evening out. Funny and totally charming. All actors excellent
Don't see it if Want serious thought provoking examination or exposition of issues.
See it if Like High energy production of story. Clever staging.
Don't see it if Interested in moral issues and theology of story . Instead cardboard cutouts. Frenetic pacing throughout- exhausting to even just watch.
See it if Potentially fascinating subject with often engaging actors
Don't see it if Go elsewhere if want nuanced discussion of issues or couple that solves their problems.
See it if Want to say that you saw everything by this author. Amusing but often overworked and confusing as what was intended. Second half better than
Don't see it if Expect good comedy or alternatively thought provoking theater.
See it if Like LaBute’s work- as this is consistent with other pieces. LaBute touches important issues and feelings, but then shys away.
Don't see it if Don’t like monologues-two of pieces are monologues by not terribly sympathetic people.Object to women being portrayed as silly or dumb
See it if Wish to experience Absorbing theater with outstanding performances concerning relevant issues.
Don't see it if Space is difficult and often uncomfortable.
See it if Touching thought provoking theater at its best
Don't see it if Can not think of a reason— except ladies room line situation is a Disaster.Come o—surely there is a way for less bars and more stalls
See it if Like cliched situation comedy of young couple with obnoxious parents and absurd characters, and do not mind uncomfortable basement theater
Don't see it if Do not like overacted cliches one actress used voice is continuously shrill and grating. Not clever enough for farce.
See it if Totally enjoyable experience. Fun, silly and tasty— with some explosions of comic brilliance.
Don't see it if You want your Shakespeare “ straight”.
