Refreshing, Intelligent, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You're a Shakespeare nerd looking for a new musical to love. Get the fries at intermission, you'll thank me later.

Don't see it if You prefer a more light hearted time at the theatre, and don't enjoy new musicals for some reason.

Funny, Refreshing, Great writing, Great acting, Clever

See it if You're in the mood for a brilliant sort of adaptation of Uncle Vanya, a phenomenal ensemble, and pre-show and intermission Vulfpeck jams.

Don't see it if You can't sit through a play with more than two acts, you despise Chekhov, you hate adaptations.

Must see, Hilarious, Great singing, Edgy, Enchanting

See it if You're a fan of large scale spectacle musicals with incredible set design, group numbers, full screlting, and astonishing costumes.

Don't see it if You don't like raunchy comedy, or the Beetlejuice movie. If you're looking for an uplifting story this may not be for you!

Entertaining, Quirky, Raunchy, Great singing, Funny

See it if You love Big Bang! Also if you love a good campy musical with great singing, and comedy bits galore. A very fun and energetic cast!

Don't see it if You have younger kids with you. Tons of sexual references. Also don’t see if you don’t have any knowledge of Big Bang - lots of references.

See it if You want a genuinely entertaining night at the theatre, but also love a good climate change awareness focus. The cast is PHENOMENAL!!

Don't see it if You're not a fan of contemporary plays that put a spin on classical themes. You're opposed to seeing a cast of women and trans bad asses.

Clever, Entertaining, Edgy, Great writing, Intelligent

See it if you're a human being living in the United States in 2018. Just see it if you can - it's brilliant, and relevant. Empowering for women.

Don't see it if You're not a fan of shows that break the fourth wall, address "uncomfortable" issues, or if political dialogue makes you cringe.

Clever, Entertaining, Great singing, Edgy, Confusing

See it if You're into the idea of a club/bar turned musical/drag show venue with extreme belting, insane dancing, and audience participation.

Don't see it if Highly sexual situations are uncomfortable for you, you don't like standing in crowds, you prefer a more traditional theatre setting.

Also I had no idea what to expect - but I had SUCH a good time.

See it if You're familiar with the source texts, love Chekhov/Shakespeare, are interested in works that re-imagine the classics.

Don't see it if You hate everything about Chekhov/Shakespeare, and you're unable to sit through a 2.5 hour play.

See it if You're a Caryl Churchill fan, love plays with a nontraditional structure, and enjoy works with politically and socially poignant themes.

Fleabag
Soho/Tribeca
Entertaining, Edgy, Great writing, Hilarious, Raunchy

See it if You want to see a one woman show executed brilliantly - Phoebe Waller-Bridge is absorbing, raunchy, and vulnerable. Fucking brilliant.

Don't see it if You're easily offended by vulgarity - especially from a "dirty feminist", dislike British humor, and prefer traditional plays.

Absorbing, Exquisite, Funny, Great staging, Resonant

See it if You're looking for a nice evening at the theatre. This is a story about two cultures many are unfamiliar with, but love is universal.

Don't see it if You prefer campy, or spectacle style musicals with huge ensemble numbers. This is a naturalistic musical.

Indulgent, Great singing, Funny, Entertaining, Campy

See it if You like over the top pop numbers, cheesy plot lines, grade-A belting, killer ensemble dance breaks.

Don't see it if You only like thought provoking, realistic, dramatic theatre and musicals. If you don't like pop show tunes avoid at all costs.
