If you like this person's taste, follow him or her!
See it if Outstanding acting by persons playing sister and her husband. Engrossing and intense. Never bored
Don't see it if Can not tell if defect is in actor or writing but brother so immature, that he would have been kicked out of junior high. Parts confusing
See it if Excellent cast, often humorous with a short dance episode that is WOW(wish more of it). Relevant topic but stories do not always make sense
Don't see it if Want clear exposition — in particular, end is absurd and not consistent with situation.Difficulty at times making out what is being said
See it if Bedlam does it again! Charming , well acted. Female lead particularly excellent. Shows do not need elaborate sets and staging.
Don't see it if Prefer elaborate sets and staging. Because some of actors play multiple roles - possible confusion if have not read the book
See it if Brilliantly acted saga of the Lehman family. One of the most engrossing and best theater I have ever seen.
Don't see it if Prefer big stage musicals . Put off by its 3+ hour length— that would normally be a killer for me but my attention never lagged.
See it if Like earnest, sometimes funny, stories of growing up as a girl/woman. Often told in excessive detail. I kept thinking (wishing) it was over
Don't see it if Want originality or insights. Recalled memories of that family member/friend who related every single saying/event of her “brilliant” child
See it if Well acted exposure of the different prospectives about the 1992 events in Los Angeles. Clear parallels to many of the tensions now existing
Don't see it if Disturbing videos and upsetting stories.
See it if You like well written, intelligent pieces, that raise issues. Insightful and humorous.
Don't see it if Looking for lots of action or big production - there are four actors but they never talk with eachother.
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 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 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 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 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 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

Don't see it if You don’t go to Queens . Want more developed production.
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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 serious thought provoking examination or exposition of issues.

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

See it if Outstanding unusual theater, brilliantly acted. Never lagged- Just wish it did not turn into love story at end
Don't see it if Do not like one person show. Looking for something relaxing
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.
