Long, Clever, Entertaining, Great staging, Dizzying

See it if You love Harry Potter and/or great special effects.

Don't see it if You can’t afford decent seats. A lot of the magic is lost from the balcony.

Falsettos
Midtown W
Delightful, Dated, Great singing, Clever, Funny

See it if you like older musicals, or love the actors involved.

Don't see it if you're expecting a big show. This is a small show, although it packs a big emotional punch.

Party People
East Village
Political, Smart, Riveting, Powerful, Intelligent

See it if you like political stories, and in-your-face acting and staging.

Don't see it if you're racist, or you only like classic show tunes.

69
Clever, Raunchy, Funny, Racist

See it if you like South Park. But ultimately the hype about this show is way overrated!

Don't see it if you're expecting South Park, because this is basically what SP would be like if they were allowed to be overtly racist on TV.

69
Dated, Slow, Great staging

See it if you want to see a classic musical, and if you like Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Don't see it if you are easily bored or if you don't like pretty slow, but classic, musicals.

Absorbing, Delightful, Clever, Quirky, Original

See it if you like delightful, nostalgic shows with great music and a charming cast

Don't see it if you don't like country music, at least a little. You don't have to love it (I dont) but you have to be able to stand a little twang.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Dizzying, Original, Must see, Riveting, Masterful

A Strange Loop
Midtown W
Resonant, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if You like biographies and are interested in the inner life of a black gay man trying to find his place in life and career.

Don't see it if you prefer big, showy musicals or don’t like work that challenges your beliefs about race and gender.

During previews
Banal, Excruciating, Overrated

See it if You don't know anything about 9/11 and want to watch a musical about people celebrating while thousands died.

Don't see it if You like good music--the music here is bad. As is the book and the characters. The actors try, but it's just bad!

Absorbing, Intelligent, Intense, Must see, Thought-provoking

See it if you want to see the best storytelling that has ever graced a professional stage. Anna Deavere Smith is the best at what she does.

Don't see it if you're racist or don't care about other people or about issues that affect society.

Once (Broadway)
Midtown W
Enchanting, Romantic, Quirky

See it if you really like romantic comedies/romance movies. This is a classic romance story.

Don't see it if you don't like the "manic pixie dream girl" trope. Because this is basically manic pixie dream girl, the musical.

50
American Psycho
Midtown W
Clever, Dated, Dizzying, Bloody

See it if you really love 80s music and you want to see a lot of partial male nudity.

Don't see it if you loved the book. They sort of butcher it. Also there's a ton of gore.

95
Absorbing, Intense, Profound, Educational, Thought-provoking

See it if you love American history and want to see a relevant play that will be much better than Birth of a Nation at explaining Mr. Turner's work.

Don't see it if you don't like long monologues or magical realism.

57
Waitress (NYC)
Midtown W
Fluffy, Entertaining, Stalker-y

See it if it's light and fluffy, though the underlying subject is domestic violence and stalking treated as fun. Music is great, plot terrible and sad

Don't see it if "Never Getting Rid of Me" is a song about the old trope that a woman will eventually fall in love with her stalker. Not funny or cute. Scary
