¡Figaro! (90210)
Midtown W
Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Enchanting, Delightful

See it if You're interested in but intimidated by opera, or you're a fan of opera with an appreciation for the irreverent

Don't see it if Your an opera purist, or if the idea of watching anything with any connection opera fills you with existential dread

Intelligent, Fluffy, Disappointing

See it if you want to get a two hour run down on Spinoza's Ethics, and watch Spinoza poke holes in Catholicism.

Don't see it if Casting is important to you. The cast was earnest but really poorly chosen. Also don't see if plays that start at the end bother you.

Absorbing, Dizzying, Great acting

See it if you fancy being devastated. Langella's performance has the feel of a particularly skillful King Lear.

Don't see it if you're not ready to watch a play about dementia.

Himself and Nora
West Village
Entertaining, Cliched, Quirky

See it if You love sex and Ireland and pop ballads.

Don't see it if you have a low tolerance for musicals, like subtlety, have never heard of James Joyce.

91
The Crucible
Midtown W
Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging

See it if you love The Crucible but were never keen on the Puritan get-up. You like spending an afternoon/evening watching talent.

Don't see it if You like The Crucible because of the puritan get-up. It's Ivo Van Hove, you have been warned.

91

See it if You like watching extraordinarily talented actors take difficult and extraordinary source material and perform it exceptionally.

Don't see it if you have difficulty sitting through long plays.

Relevant, Absorbing, Thought-provoking

See it if You like dystopian-lite, global warming freaks you out and you're itching to feel righteous anger, you're looking to feel empty inside.

Don't see it if you require subtlety.

Incognito
Midtown W
Great acting, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Absorbing

See it if you're looking for a skilled set of actors to tell you a compelling story about the tragic inscrutability of the human mind.

Don't see it if You hate anything to do with science, you can't discern accents, you only like linear storytelling.

Tuck Everlasting
Midtown W
Enchanting, Resonant, Great staging

See it if you're looking for a folk inspired, masterfully choreographed, richly told story. Also if you want to see something with your children.

Don't see it if you hate musicals? Like IDK this was just so beautiful I don't know why you wouldn't want to see it.

American Psycho
Midtown W
Refreshing, Relevant, Quirky

See it if You get jazzed about 80's references, you love Duncan Sheik, you like shows with unreliable narrators.

Don't see it if Blood and affected-snooty accents freak you out.

80
Straight
Midtown W
Absorbing, Funny, Relevant

See it if you're looking for an "of the moment" play that deals with sexuality and coming into adulthood, and want a cast with great chemistry.

Don't see it if you're dead set on seeing something with a happy ending.

Matilda
Midtown W
Clever, Delightful, Funny, Great staging, Refreshing

See it if you were once a terribly clever child, and still love terribly clever writing. See it even if you think you don't like musicals about kids.

Don't see it if you really hated the Matilda book/movie, or if you plan to bring small children, or if you truly hate musicals with children.

Absorbing, Great staging, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Profound

See it if you're looking for a play that is both beautifully written and unexpectedly staged.

Don't see it if You're sensitive to flashing light effects (there are a lot of those).

Ambitious, Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Dated

See it if you love the music and want to see a fresh, less-racist rendering of a classic.

Don't see it if you don't like classic musicals.

Absorbing, Great acting, Intense, Thought-provoking, Overrated

See it if you like minimalist plays, and have seen View from the Bridge before with traditional staging.

Don't see it if you haven't seen an Arthur Miller play before, if you don't like highly conceptual staging.

Absorbing, Clever, Funny, Entertaining, Intelligent

See it if you have a pulse. You like intelligently written musical content. You love musical theater and are eager to see something entirely new.

Don't see it if You're an unhappy person, or a racist, or a terrible person who'll just sit on their phone the entire show.
