The Beyonce
Midtown W
Clever, Absorbing, Great staging, Great acting, Funny

See it if You are a woman. Whether you’re a Chekhov fan or not, I think this story will ring true for many. Really wonderful performances and set.

Don't see it if You were expecting a Beyonce biography. Alas, this is not that play!

Also This is what off-off should be. A really thoughtfully created play wit... Read more Read less

See it if You're a millennial who grew up on Sesame Street trying to make your way in the world.

Don't see it if Raunchy puppet play offends you.

Great acting, Thought-provoking, Intense, Enchanting, Great staging

See it if You're not sure you like Shakespeare, or you think Shakespeare can only be performed or enjoyed by a certain demographic.

Don't see it if You've seen a million R&Js already, and/or you're going to scream a silent scream if someone has made vast cuts to a beloved play.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Great writing, Must see, Masterful, Original, Great singing

See it if You want to be able to say "I saw it when..."

Don't see it if You don't have a firstborn child or magic beans lying around to trade in for a ticket.

Small Mouth Sounds
Midtown W
Ambitious, Slow, Resonant, Quirky, Great acting

See it if You like watching human behavior and have ever had a weird New Age experience.

The Briefly Dead
Midtown E
Great acting, Great singing, Intelligent, Epic, Quirky

See it if You’re a feminist! Really great, predominantly female cast led by a female director, translating an old story into something that feels new.

Don't see it if You aren’t into musicals/want a straight play. There’s more song and dance than you might expect for a play based on classic theater.

Also As other reviewers have said, there are some super strong, interesting... Read more Read less

The Good Earth
Soho/Tribeca
Absorbing, Great acting, Resonant, Great singing

See it if You're interested in beautiful vocal music, gorgeous ensemble-driven work, and a unique theater experience for New York audiences.

Don't see it if You're looking for something with a more traditional linear plot, or have a tough time with dialects.

Gluten!

Funny, Quirky, Raunchy, Great writing, Clever

See it if you're into fast-paced wordplay, nice sound design, or if you like to talk about struggles with intimacy.

Don't see it if you're sensitive to strong language.

Hilarious, Intelligent, Great acting, Relevant, Entertaining

See it if you've ever visited the Museum of Sex and been disappointed by how under-researched or un-funny it was.

Don't see it if you've ever visited the Museum of Sex and been disappointed by how little nudity there was.

Absorbing, Refreshing, Original, Must see, Great singing

See it if You want to see a truly original, exciting, new, funny, poignant piece of musical theater but can't afford tickets to Hamilton.

Don't see it if You are one of those people who really can't handle child musical theater actors doing some real earnest singing.

Great writing, Original, Ambitious, Intelligent, Delightful

See it if You like female-driven storylines, snappy dialogue, or if you were that kid in middle school who was really into Greek mythology.

Don't see it if You're not into the Fringe aesthetic: experimental, minimialistic, young.
