Midtown W
Entertaining, Riveting, Must see, Absorbing

See it if you want to see a classic that still holds up, you like fine singing and unique staging.

Don't see it if you want a fully immersive show with a massive, large-scale set or you want something brand new.

95
Profound, Masterful, Epic, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy new, unique pieces of theatre.

Don't see it if you want an escape from the here and now. It hits modern times hard.

Riveting, Resonant, Indulgent, Edgy, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy learning about or exploring different aspects of life, enjoy refreshing new plays, or want something unique.

Don't see it if you aren’t comfortable with BDSM.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Relevant, Riveting, Great acting

See it if you enjoy the story and don't mind updates to classics. It's masterful theatre meant to provoke and engage, and it does just that.

Don't see it if you don't want something relevant and hard-hitting, or if you want drama as opposed to exhibition.

Midtown W
Absorbing, Edgy, Ambitious, Relevant, Riveting

See it if you like cutting-edge staging and great acting.

Don't see it if you want to stay away from something relevant and critical. It can be a bit overloading at times.

Absorbing, Clever, Edgy, Great acting, Intense

See it if you want to experience masterful theatre with fantastic acting, especially in a smaller venue where you can really feel connected.

Don't see it if you don't like being up-close-and-personal with a show (the actors are very close and maintain a lot of eye contact).

Also It's a bit rough to get through, as it hits you really hard, but this ... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Indulgent

See it if you like classic musicals, great acting, hilarious playwriting. Even if you have no prior knowledge of the show, you'll have a fantastic tim

Relevant, Refreshing, Profound, Thought-provoking, Masterful

See it if you have the chance. It’s beautiful, it’s masterful, and some of the most incredible theatre you’ll ever see.

Don't see it if there’s no reason not to. I’ve heard some say it’s slow with a lot of dialogue, but it’s one act and riveting all the way through.

Absorbing, Intelligent, Profound, Refreshing, Relevant

See it if you like magic. That’s the best way to describe it: it’s a true story told through the magic of theatre in the most beautiful way.

Don't see it if N/A. See it. It’s short (one act), but more than worth it.

93
Indulgent, Quirky, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you want a fun time at the theatre with engaging songs. It makes you feel like you’re watching a modern 80s teen film, which is fun!

Don't see it if you go in expecting to hate it.

Quirky, Great staging, Ambitious

See it if you enjoy great staging and want to have a good time.

Don't see it if you are protective of the movie and can’t put aside the fact they’re different stories. Or if you want something brand new and innovative.

Disappointing, Indulgent, Overrated

See it if you like new theatre, I guess. The songs are catchy, the acting is great, so there is a lot to enjoy.

Don't see it if as an LGBT person, it rubbed me the wrong way. It's triggering and shocking, and doesn't clean up its mistakes.

Also it's self-indulgent for the wrong reasons. Creatives patting themselve... Read more Read less

Great singing, Funny, Overrated

See it if you want to see something new and prominent. It's definitely fun and the songs are catchy.

Don't see it if you aren't a fan of comedy and aren't willing to just let your inhibitions go and enjoy it for what it is.

Delightful, Great staging, Resonant, Exquisite, Funny

See it if you love theatre, period. It's a classic restaged in an absolutely enchanting production.

Don't see it if you aren't a big fan of classics. It's an exquisitely done revival, but you have to meet it where it stands.

Enchanting, Great staging, Riveting, Resonant, Intense

See it if you love stagecraft and the magic of theatre. If you want an experience. If you want to be blown away.

Don't see it if if you don't like spectacle and want instead a deep story. It's a simple story with heart, but the stagecraft is the best part.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Entertaining, Exquisite, Intense

See it if you like more classical theatre with a modern twist. The immersive staging is fantastic.

Don't see it if N/A.

Absorbing, Delightful, Enchanting, Masterful, Resonant

See it if you like theatre. Period. Immersive, magical storytelling, a compelling cast, the most beautiful set. It’s a must see.

Don't see it if honestly, I can’t think of a reason not to go. It’s immersive, but not in-your-face if you are worried about being interacted with.

Absorbing, Dizzying, Great staging, Epic, Must see

See it if you like theatre. Period. Chances are there will be something that will enrapture you, from the score to the choreography to the ambiance.

Don't see it if you don’t like shows with 95%+ singing. If you prefer plays and dislike musicals because there’s too much singing, that might be a downfall.
