Perfect Crime

Disappointing, Banal, Excruciating, Insipid, Overrated

See it if you want to spend money on a show that is on the low end of a community theatre experience. It lacks professionalism in every aspect.

Don't see it if you enjoy quality theatre. No idea why this show has lasted as long as it has. There are so many better options that are small, low budget

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Overrated, Insipid

See it if goofy humor, satire, sacrilegious and offensive themes are your cup of tea.

Noises Off
Midtown W
Delightful, Cliched, Entertaining, Funny, Indulgent

See it if you want a fun comedy, feel like a laugh with good acting, well directed. You feel like seeing silly slapstick, mindless entertainment.

Don't see it if you want intelligent show, have seen it already at a school or community theater - probably not much different other than better acting.

Daddy Long Legs

Delightful, Enchanting, Refreshing, Romantic, Entertaining

See it if you want a small, intimate theatre experience with a good story and music. Clever approach to storytelling, charming musical, well produced

Don't see it if you want a large cast with big production numbers. It is not a modern accessible kind of musical, slower but charming in it's pace.

Clever, Exquisite, Great staging, Ambitious, Refreshing

See it if you enjoy creative storytelling, cultural experiences and are with children. Innovative and live African instruments a treat for all.

Don't see it if you despise Disney, don't appreciate cultural theatre or enjoy family entertainment with many children in the audience.
