Aladdin (Broadway)
Midtown W
Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Fluffy, Great staging

See it if You want a night off. It's fun, not too hard on the brain, flashy, sparkly, and has some very cool visual effects.

Don't see it if You want something exactly like the movie. It's close, but missing some key elements.

Delightful, Enchanting, Great music, Romantic, Great costumes

See it if You want to melt your troubles away with beautiful music and visuals and hold your breath during all the satisfying romantic moments

Don't see it if You don't like classics? Even though it's revamped in a much more modern way

Bandstand
Midtown W
Great singing, Cliched, Delightful, Fun, Predictable

See it if Corey Cott and Laura Osnes are in it. The singing was fantastic. The show is fun.

Don't see it if You don't want to see a very typical, run-of-the-mill musical. Very predictable.

Ambitious, Confusing, Great staging, Quirky, Innovative

See it if You're prepared for War and Peace in a rave sort of way. Beautiful set, but confusing storyline and it's described in song which is annoying

Don't see it if You're expecting a classic story told classically, or an innovative and clever story told in a modern way. It's a bit of both and neither.

Delightful, Overrated, Quirky, Clever, Slow

See it if You like jukebox musicals

Don't see it if You don't know who Carol King is

Falsettos
Midtown W
Great singing, Great acting, Heartbreaking

See it if You want to see some of the best performances of your life. The actors are all INCREDIBLE. It's heartfelt and my entire row was sobbing.

Don't see it if You don't feel like crying today or having an existential crisis over how such talented people are actually real and actually exist

Something Rotten!
Midtown W
Clever, Delightful, Funny

See it if You want something light and entertaining and you understand at least some Shakespeare and other musical theatre references

Don't see it if You don't know anything about Shakespeare or any musicals because you won't get the humor

88
Entertaining, Original, Thought-provoking, Predictable, Relevant

See it if You'd like to see a touching story with fun songs and much-needed minority representation. It helps change closed minds.

Don't see it if You're expecting Wicked. It's not quite THAT good, but it's still great.

Epic, Intense, Profound, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if You want to hear some epic music and beautiful, interwoven stories of love and redemption.

Don't see it if You're looking for something "light" and easy.

During previews
Touching, Exquisite, Masterful, Original, Profound

See it if You want to hear beautiful music & see how deafness is incorporated not only into the art, but into the content of relevant societal issues.

Don't see it if You don't feel like crying for several hours after the finale or feeling like you were touched in a profound way.

Clever, Great staging, Hilarious, Masterful, Relevant

See it if You can handle offensive humor. It's really funny and the message overall is not offensive, but some songs are. Relevant social issues too.

Don't see it if You're going with your kids. Or parents. It'll be super awkward. Know that some content is highly offensive.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Ambitious, Intelligent, Masterful, Resonant

See it if You want something very smart and well-written, profound but not cliched, diverse in numerous ways, and just an overall very solid show.

Don't see it if You can't keep up.

Cabaret (Broadway)
Midtown W
Terrifying, Absorbing, Exquisite, Intelligent, Intense

See it if You're prepared to cry and walk out traumatized. Everything comes together perfectly to create a deep, unsettling impact. Uniquely amazing.

Don't see it if You're looking for something more easy to consume, like the movie. This will hit you over the head.

Anastasia (NYC)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Delightful, Disappointing, Masterful, Entertaining

See it if You're prepared to look at the story in a new way. It's very beautiful and an interesting take, but the amazing original story isn't there.

Don't see it if You really loved the movie, because this has very little to do with the movie. :(

95
Waitress (NYC)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Clever, Entertaining, Hilarious, Resonant

See it if You're prepared to get the full package: it's funny, and it's also dramatic and sad at parts. Deals with surviving domestic abuse.

Don't see it if You're not prepared to see scenes of domestic abuse.

95
Great singing, Great acting, Intelligent, Intense, Relevant

See it if Yes, just do it

Don't see it if You're uncomfortable with mental health topics like suicide and social anxiety

75
The Humans
Midtown W
Great acting, Quirky, Thought-provoking

See it if You like plays that are set in and explore everyday struggles.

Don't see it if You don't enjoy plays. This is not a musical.

75
Great staging, Indulgent, Sad, Great story but meh execution, Unbalanced

See it if You liked the movie. The music, acting, and staging are good.

Don't see it if You don't want the story diluted by way too many "playing with the kids" scenes. The emotional content is watered down with "fun" content.

80
Ambitious, Epic, Romantic, Underwhelming, Touching

See it if You love the Phantom story and music enough to overlook overly ambitious staging and rushed acting.

Don't see it if You're expecting the kind of production value or acting that the Royal Albert Hall production had.

Matilda
Midtown W
Clever, Hilarious, Slow, Loud, Great staging

See it if You want to see some really cool staging and talented kids.

Don't see it if You don't want to hear kids sing in somewhat shrill voices for a couple of hours.

80
Exquisite, Epic, Masterful, Resonant, Entertaining

See it if You love the music and want to see some really masterful staging, costumes, singing, etc.

Don't see it if You didn't like the movie.

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Enchanting, Epic, Must see, Thought-provoking

See it if You want something that will BLOW YOU AWAY. This is the "gateway musical" for a reason. Amazing, clever, touching, inspiring, thoughtful...

Don't see it if I really can't think of any reason not to see Wicked at least once in your life.
