See it if you like plays that make you think about race, and the trauma slavery has left on the lives of millions of African Americans in the US.

Don't see it if If you don't like to be made uncomfortable by nudity, and sex on the stage, orr by the exploration of probing questions about race.

Exquisite, Great singing, Enchanting

See it if you love Duncan Sheik's gorgeous music. Singing and music are fantastic.

Don't see it if The story and staging are conventional, and one wants more from the writer of Sweat. Still a perfectly beautiful, traditional musical.

Indulgent, Disappointing, Banal

See it if You like Lucas Hnath's plays, and if you know very little about politics, but are sort of mildly interested in the Clinton's.

Don't see it if you are interested in historical plays that dig deep into a subject that provides depth and insights. What a waste of a broadway platform.

Funny, Great acting, Hilarious, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You like realism with a dab of absurdism, and really amazing acting, Ethan Hawke turns himself inside out during this show.

Don't see it if You don't like shows that are emblematic of America now the intellectuals pitting themselves against the anti-intellectuals of Trump's US.

The Dead, 1904
Upper E Side
Clever, Great acting, Great writing, Profound, Must see

See it if If you love interactive theater and James Joyce, one of the best nights I have spent at the theater, I was inside a work of literature. Love

Don't see it if If you don't like adaptations, if you don't like to see the story happen around you and the actors interact with you as with a dinner guest.

Beyond Babel

Anna Karenina: a riff
Delightful, Entertaining, Funny

See it if you loved Natasha and Pierre and the Comet of 1812, this is another fun Tolstoy adaptation, meets hilarious acting/staging a la Bedlam.

Don't see it if if you expect the same amazing music as Dave Malloy had in his Tolstoy adaptation. The music here is decidedly much weaker.

Judgment Day
Upper E Side
Relevant, Profound, Great staging

See it if If you like the movie White Ribbon which is sort of a preface to what would happen in Germany in the 1930s, the viciousness of crowds.

Don't see it if If you are not interested in plays asking big questions, or don’t like incredible sets made as if for an opera house.

Profound, Resonant, Intelligent, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you like political and historical theater, that explores uncomfortable questions of race and ethnicity in the history of this nation and NY.

Don't see it if you don't like one person shows.

Resonant, Profound, Clever

See it if you like plays about race. This is yet another take on White Noise/Get Out/ the Sellout (by Paul Beatty).

Don't see it if stage nudity makes you uncomfortable. It can be clearer as well, are there two plots in the play, or just one? The title suggests one.

Profound, Intelligent, Great singing

See it if you love Dave Malloy's brilliant music, and cutting edge, non-conventional stories. The singing and music were superb.

Don't see it if you care about a clear story, or traditional broadway musicals. This is too edgy, and new to appeal to Broadway conservatives.

White Noise
East Village
Thought-provoking, Relevant, Intelligent

See it if you love walking away from a play and talking it about it days afterwards. Paul Beatty's Sellout meets Jordan Peele's Get Out.

Don't see it if if questions of race make you uncomfortable, and if you don't want to be brought out of your comfort zone at the theater.

The White Devil
West Village
Great staging, Great acting, Funny

See it if A great, gory, bloody play that is about 500 years old, but done so well and with a superb cast including the awesome Daniel Oreskes.

Don't see it if If you don't like camp, if you don't like Bedlam's Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice then don't see this.

Also Great costumes and acting that makes the characters seem like mob boss... Read more Read less

Profound, Masterful, Great acting
