Entertaining, Funny, Indulgent

See it if This is fun and funny and nostalgic and interactive. The 1950's Grade B SciFi movies meets musical Mars Attacks for the family.

Don't see it if you are looking for serious, thought provoking drama. This is a snuggle with your best friend and eat popcorn kind of evening.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Great acting, Intense, Hilarious

See it if you enjoy watc hing brilliance. Tatiana Maslany is marvelous but watching Brian Cranston is transfomative. Both are incredible.

Don't see it if you do not appreciate tough, topical drama that is as timely and thought provoking today as when first produced.

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Entertaining, Masterful

See it if you have wanted to know why the Wicked Witch was wicked. Was she ALWAYS wicked? Solid story-telling from a different viewpoint.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy music, if you don't enjoy an enchanting story, if you don't want a new twist on a classic tale, don't see this show.

Absorbing, Great singing, Great staging, Great writing, Great acting

See it if you appreciate true story inspiration. I laughed, I cried, I cared for these people and what they accomplished. You will, too.

Don't see it if you don't want to"get involved". These people did get involved and it changed their lives.

The Parisian Woman
Midtown W
Disappointing, Overrated, Thought-provoking

See it if you have never seen House of Cards and think this might be original material. It's supposed to be timely, topical and shocking. It isn't.

Don't see it if you appreciate original, thought provoking material. This is a direct lift from House of Cards, season two by the same author. Disappointing

Anastasia (NYC)
Midtown W
Enchanting, Great staging, Romantic

See it if you enjoy an enchanting romance. Mary Beth Peil is magnificent as the Dowager Empress and Caroline O'Connor as Lilly is a delight.

Don't see it if you are looking for car crashes and shoot-em-up adventure. This is sweet and romantic and a little sad.

Great acting, Great singing, Thought-provoking, Great writing

See it if You appreciate great voices telling a father/son relationship coming of age story. It's not easy growing up in the Bronx - or anywhere.

Don't see it if You don't care about how/why family, friends, circumstances make us who we become.

93
Delightful, Funny, Romantic

See it if Donna Murphy as Dolly Levi is enchanting and her interaction with David Hyde Pierce was engaging. It was fun and sing-alongable.

Don't see it if If you want thought provoking profanity, this is not the right show for you. This is cotton candy sweetness at its best.

Absorbing, Great acting, Ambitious, Great writing, Masterful

See it if you enjoy writing as relevant today as when originally produced. Racism and hatred in the courtroom contrasted by Scout's acceptance.

Don't see it if you can't accept writing that is raw and emotion that is ugly and mean spirited contradicted by a child's willingness to love.

King Kong (NYC)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Great staging, Must see

See it if The story is what it is, but the visuals are stunning and the choreography is unique and absorbing. Kong lives!

Don't see it if you're looking for deeply moving, classic theater. This is an event that you just have to accept is "King Kong", not Macbeth.

99
Absorbing, Great acting, Profound, Thought-provoking

See it if You care about world/personal events of today and how we all have history/family/baggage that makes us who we are.

Don't see it if you don't understand the world today and don't care. If lessons learned yesterday mean nothing, you won't enjoy this story of courage & love

The Children
Midtown W
Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if you enjoy smart, on-point, writing that is both poignant and witty. This show speaks to the heart of our responsibility to those who follow

Don't see it if you are looking for light and fluffy. This show touches your heart so if you don't care about the future and our place in it, don't see it.

Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Funny, Great staging

See it if you enjoy upbeat fun and funny. SpongeBob saves Bikini Bottom because he refuses to accept that destiny cannot be changed. I loved it all.

Don't see it if you can't accept a solid message wrapped in bright colors and music. And definitely do not see if you don't want to jump up and dance along.

75
Disappointing, Slow, Great staging

See it if you are a fan of Elizabeth McGovern. She is delightful but the story just misses the mark with a message that just never solidifies.

Don't see it if you are looking for a straight forward story line or characters with which you can identify. It just never plucked a heartstring.

For a previous production
Dizzying, Funny, Hilarious, Must see

See it if it Can go wrong - it Does go wrong. It's silly and fun and, you know it's coming, but when things unravel, it's "unravel" on steroids.

Don't see it if you don't appreciate mixing Agatha Christie with Fawlty Towers and Monty Python.
