Refreshing, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if One woman's life filled with tragedy and humor. A "sweet" tale of contempory life today. Lois is good and very energetic.

Don't see it if All our lives are filled with both problems and good times and memories. If you do not like looking at life, not the show for you.

See it if Light fluffy entertainment. Rudner is funny and elicits a lot of laughs. Good acting and sets.

Don't see it if Serious subject treated with humor. Not particularly thought provoking, but silly sometimes.


See it if A fictional account of the Nazi occupation of Paris. Bit of history. Very quick moving.

Don't see it if Sorry, did not enjoy this one at all for many reasons. One being a lot of muffled dialogue.

Imagining Madoff
Midtown W
Thought-provoking, Profound, Great acting, Clever

See it if Interesting insight into Madoff. Good acting. Not quite what I expected, but enjoyed nontheless.

Absorbing, Entertaining, Great acting, Intelligent, Great writing

See it if Very well done. Dry humor. Absorbing and interesting twist. Good job.

Entertaining, Great acting, Quirky, Relevant

See it if 3 very different plays - interesting, but not LaBute's best work. Good acting. Moves quickly.

Don't see it if Do not see if you desire a standard in depth show. Short plays cannot get into real character study. Just OK.

Gloria: A Life
Absorbing, Entertaining, Ambitious, Intelligent, Great writing

See it if Well done presentation of Steinan's life done by Christine Lahti. Wonderful history of woman's fight for equality.

Don't see it if If history does not interest you, do not go. If a woman's fight for equality , past and present, bores you, do not go.

Midtown W

See it if A good character study of a mother/daughter relationship .... switching back and forth in time.

Don't see it if If you desire a continuous story, this is not for you. Rapid switching in time. Also, if dementia is a personal pain, can be emotional.

Entertaining, Great staging, Great singing, Great acting

See it if Great rock music. Entire cast was wonderful - both singing and dancing terrific.

Don't see it if Have to like oldies but goodies rock music. However, the beautiful singing and dancing enough to enjoy this production

See it if One woman's attempt to deal with life when the world comes crashing down. Wonderful job by Corman. Laugh and cry at the same time.

Don't see it if Can be disturbing watching a woman in pain, especially when a true story. Nowhere plain entertainment. Leave the theater thinking....

Refreshing, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if Doo- wop memories were wonderful. The cast is terrific, they certainly work hard and it shows. Had the audience rocking!

Don't see it if If doo-wop nostalgia is not for not see this. More music than underlying story.

Absorbing, Great acting, Intelligent, Profound

See it if Very interesting story of African contempory politics. Very well told story of 2 different cultures and an eventual friendship. Well done.

Don't see it if Minimal set (in fact none) and production centers on only characters. If entertainment is preferred, not a good choice.

See it if If your taste is 60's and 70's music this show is fun. Loved music. Also have to like biographical story. Ambitious production.

Intelligent, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if Amazing how Kennedy's plan for his Presidency, 60 years ago rings so true for today. History buff..this is for you.

Don't see it if One man show might not be your taste. Good acting, but not totally convincing.

Torch Song (NYC)
Midtown W
Delightful, Entertaining, Great acting, Funny, Great writing

See it if Very funny. A gay man always looking for love, and his great sense of humor. Great dialogue. Michael Urie is simply fantastic.

Don't see it if If you want serious storyline, this is not it. Sometimes silly. This is pure entertainment, without a "real" message.

Absorbing, Great acting, Intelligent, Must see, Riveting

See it if A wonderfully acted piece of American history. Very well written. So pertinent to our current American crisis.

Don't see it if If one man shows, or history is not to your liking, this one is not for you.

The Sardi's Tour
Midtown W
Absorbing, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if If you are interested in theater and movies, tour is terrific. The stories behind the restaurant and the characters are very entertaining.

The Originalist
Midtown E
Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent, Profound

See it if Liked this a lot...great actors. Well done. Relevant for today''s times. Highly recommend.

Don't see it if If you are politcally liberal, may be very disturbing. At least left with better understanding of a very complex man.
