Entertaining, Raunchy, Hilarious, Great singing, Delightful

See it if you find humor in some aspects of organized religion and you don't mind profanity

Don't see it if you will be offended by profanity or the show's take on religion (particularly Mormonism)

Where Are We Now
East Village
Intimate, Entertaining, Moving, Enchanting, Delightful

See it if you are a fan of David Bowie, you enjoy cabaret

Don't see it if you don't enjoy David Bowie music, you don't enjoy small, intimate performances

Refuge
Gramercy
Emotional, Powerful, Beautiful, Resonant, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy history, stories of strength & hope. Drama w some interpretive dance & some music. A deeply moving story in several languages.

Don't see it if you would prefer to see a musical or want to see something light and fun.

Great acting, Intense, Relevant

Don't see it if You prefer to see elaborate, feel good productions

Clever, Delightful, Funny, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if you're a fan of Chekhov, or are looking for something light, fun, and entertaining with some music (though not a musical)

Don't see it if you're in the mood for something big and flashy, or something with deep, heavy content, or you don't appreciate a bit of physical humor

That Physics Show
Midtown W
Educational, Interesting, Kid-focused, Fun

See it if You are bringing your kids. Lots of cool science to see here.

Don't see it if You are looking for a story/plot, music. This is really a science lesson, doing all the experiments you wish you could do at home.

Stuffed
Midtown W
Clever, Funny, Edgy, Hilarious, Refreshing

See it if You enjoy comedy (esp Lisa Lampanelli), and you've ever wished you could change your body size. Comedy that tackles some serious issues.

Don't see it if You are looking for a show with a linear plot. This is very much a variety show with a theme and characters, but not a linear plot.

In Transit

Great singing, Great staging, Refreshing, Clever, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy a capella music, appreciate life in NYC and traveling by subway, and are up for something light and entertaining

Don't see it if You are looking for something deeper or with a more involved plot. This musical gives a view into the lives of several people

Absorbing, Clever, Edgy, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if You love Shakespeare, stories of personal transformation, and intimate theater experiences.

Don't see it if You are uncomfortable when the performers can see your face or if you prefer fictional stories.

Entertaining, Ambitious, Disappointing, Great acting, Epic

See it if You haven't seen it before. Catchy music. Powerful voices. Multicultural cast. Classic story by Victor Hugo.

Don't see it if You saw the original staging. Some things have changed and the story is less coherent this way.

Don't see it if you are bored by stream of consciousness, or would prefer to see a flashy production

Slapstick, Occasionally clever, Good acting, Silly, Fun

See it if you enjoy slapstick comedy. The set and staging are clever. The actors are talented. Start to finish silliness.

Don't see it if you don't have the patience for slapstick comedy - I don't - found this annoying, with some funny lines. The entire show is slapstick

Absorbing, Great acting, Epic, Great writing, Resonant

See it if you like shows that are beautifully written, seamlessly weaving historic fact with creative fiction.

Don't see it if you prefer large productions with song, dance, & elaborate sets. This stripped down performance is powerful in part due to its simplicity.

Amelie
Midtown W
Clever, Delightful, Enchanting, Quirky, Sweet

See it if You are a fan of the movie, or you enjoy offbeat stories. The show cleverly takes the daydream aspects of the movie and recreates them.

Don't see it if You want a musical with large splashy production and songs that run through your mind for days afterward.

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Delightful, Great singing, Resonant, Enchanting

Bright Star
Midtown W
Enchanting, Romantic, Intelligent

See it if you like old time Southern music and you can't resist a good story. The lead actress is incredible. Great staging.

Don't see it if you prefer light stories. While there is a happy ending, the story is heavy.
