Absorbing, Resonant, Profound

See it if This is the play of the year. Sorkin's script does justice to the exquisite source material. Wonderfully acted. Give Celia K-B her Tony now.

Don't see it if You haven't read the classic yet, get to it! Then go to the show.

King Kong (NYC)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Great staging, Disappointing

See it if You want to see a masterful larger-than-life puppet. There are some unique elements that make the show worthwhile.

Don't see it if You want more than the spectacle. The music starts of great-1930s vibe, but drops off to talk-singing and even oddly placed rap.

Disappointing, Great singing, Overrated

See it if You have a princess at home who mustn't hear "Let it Go" in person. You've been waiting for a showtune about saunas.

Don't see it if You can put the ticket $ towards a trip to a Disney Park instead. Where your princess can hug Elsa and Anna. Disappointing show, not magical

Amelie
Midtown W
Disappointing, Slow, Indulgent

See it if You want to get inspiration for bedroom furniture from this cool set. Or you really, really like the band Hem who wrote the music.

Don't see it if You expect the title character to charm you like the movie did. Also young Amelie is dreadful singer, and she keeps coming back, ugh.

For a previous production
Dizzying, Hilarious, Funny

See it if You like silly shenanigans & the element of maybe getting to see a concussion happen live on stage. Lots of physical comedy. Audience roared

Don't see it if You like your Brits buttoned-up vs. farcical.

26
Disappointing, Indulgent, Slow, Overrated

See it if You like slow dramas. I expected to be scandalized, not bored.

Don't see it if Your patience is tested by noisy squeaky seats or if you have trouble hearing, mics were low and it was difficult to pay attention.

Disappointing, Excruciating

See it if The turntable made you dizzy, they left it out this go-around.

Don't see it if You're expecting glorious singing you've listened to for years on the original soundtrack. Actors inexplicably directed to mostly talk-sing.

Shuffle Along
Midtown W
Confusing, Entertaining, Slow, Great staging, Disappointing

See it if You're in the mood for tappy hour (or three). An ensemble piece and a glimpse into theatre history.

Don't see it if A clear plot is important to you. This show could have stood alone as a revue without weaving in the book.

Edgy, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if You want to see a stripped down, reimagined version of Oklahoma! The singing is still great and the show makes you think.

Don't see it if I wouldn't hesitate to bring a child to a traditional production, but this darker tone would be a bit much. Show loses its infectious joy.

Clever, Funny, Delightful

See it if You want to see something imaginative. Take time to look around the theatre before the show starts, such a fun set! Love Squidward.

Don't see it if The plot is a bit overdramatic making Act II drag. Not a fan of the cartoon, but this was a fun night of theatre.
