Entertaining, Great singing, Ambitious, Fun

See it if You would like a night at the club, where there is a story being told with great choreography and amazing lead vocals.

Don't see it if drunk white girls not paying attention the show and just screaming conversations in the middle of the stage would bother you.

Funny, Great writing, Resonant

Don't see it if you don’t like minimalist sets and one act plays.

Relevant, Quirky, Great writing, Great acting, Great staging

See it if You want to see a very smart script with some really amazing, up close performances.

Don't see it if You NEED closure or for everything to be explained. It’s a weird show, which I loved, but the stranger next to me HATED.

Absorbing, Great acting, Great singing, Refreshing

See it if you want a little slice of life musical that is beautifully performed.

Don't see it if you need big elaborate numbers in your musicals.

Indulgent, Disappointing, Cliched, Funny

See it if you are a fan of John.

Don't see it if you don’t like the most cliche version of a one man show, with unnecessary tangents.

Clever, Entertaining, Indulgent, Quirky, Intense

See it if you know Macbeth pretty well and you want to see a very different, sometimes powerful version of it.

Don't see it if you don't like small spaces or can't sit on a milk crate. Also, if you have social anxiety, DO NOT GET THERE EARLY.

Also I wish they had just done it without the fake accents and the gypsy gi... Read more Read less

Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Funny, Great singing

See it if you want to see a magical production of a classic musical.

Don't see it if you want something heavy.

In & Of Itself
Gramercy
Disappointing

See it if you like one-man shows with a very flimsy grasp on through-line.

Don't see it if you are expecting an intimate magic show. Go see Dan White's The Magician at the NoMad instead.

Great staging, Entertaining, Enchanting, Funny, Great ensemble

See it if you want to see an amazing ensemble put on a funny and charming show. Some real magic happens up there.

Don't see it if you would get bored by the monotony of seeing the same day over and over again.

Marvin's Room
Midtown W
Funny, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if you want to see a kind of funny play about kind of serious life issues.

Don't see it if low energy performances make you sleepy.

71
Great acting, Relevant, Funny

See it if you like Alison Janney. The set is cool.

Don't see it if you know you don't love the script, because this production does nothing to improve upon the existing problems.

Falsettos
Midtown W
Great acting, Great singing, Great writing, Great staging, Must see

See it if you want to see a near-perfect show. The cast is incredible.

Don't see it if you know you don't like Finn or "gay plays."

Cliched, Epic, Great staging, Entertaining

See it if you already like the show. This is a good production of it, with the same spectacle you've come to expect.

Don't see it if you know you don't like Miss Saigon. This won't change your mind.

89
Great acting, Great singing, Great staging, Resonant, Relevant

See it if you want to see a relevant, touching story, with some REALLY, REALLY great performances. Act 2 crushed me.

Don't see it if you aren't a fan of contemporary musical theatre writing.

The Present

In Transit
Midtown W
Great singing, Cliched, Funny

See it if you love a Capella singing.

Don't see it if you hate cliches. It's just one after the other here.

66
A Dog Story
Midtown W
Fluffy, Cliched, Charming

See it if you like the cliché rom-com musical. 3/4 of the cast is really talented, especially the two leads. Half of the music is really good.

Don't see it if you can't tolerate a really un-even book. Also don't see it if you don't have an imagination of your own, this show REQUIRES it.

83
Enchanting, Entertaining, Dizzying, Intense

See it if you want to see a well designed Cirque show.

Don't see it if you don't like the Cirque style. I will say, I really didn't like the clown in this one.

Love, Love, Love
Midtown W
Great acting, Funny, Great writing, Resonant, Thought-provoking

See it if you want to see a great script come to life by the hands of some great actors. Good family drama.

Don't see it if you are easily distracted by a terrible set...that third act house....yikes.

90
Entertaining, Hilarious, Raunchy

See it if you are a fan of the characters, obviously, but also if you love to hate New York.

Don't see it if you know nothing about this city. Lots of inside jokes that would go over a tourist's head.

The Layover
Midtown W
Great staging, Great acting, Great set, Funny, Slow

See it if you want to see a fairly interesting, modern look at wanting to escape the life you lead. Some really strong acting here.

Don't see it if you want to see a show that makes a strange turn in the final scene, that just doesn't feel right.

85
Raunchy, Great singing, Great staging, Great lighting, Entertaining

See it if you want to see a pretty good version of the (unfortunately) rarely-produced, superior version of The Wild Party. GREAT use of the space.

Don't see it if you like Lippa's Wild Party.

A Day by the Sea
Midtown W
Long, Entertaining, Intelligent, Slow, Great acting

See it if you like mostly good actors doing long monologues. Very Chekhov-esque, as many have said.

Don't see it if you get bored with long winded monologues. I felt like I was watching Long Day's Journey into Night again, but without Jessica Lange.

Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Edgy, Clever

See it if you like Sean Hayes. He's great.

Don't see it if you are very religious.

Great singing, Entertaining, Confusing, Great acting

See it if you already love the source material. Carolee is the best Lovett I've ever seen.

Don't see it if you don't know the show that well. While the staging is very clever and charming, it leads to clumsy moments in the climax of the show.

Great acting, Enchanting, Great writing, Intelligent

See it if you are a Sondheim fan. And if you want to see some great tech/lighting. Great performances all around.

Ambitious, Disappointing, Raunchy, Slow, Uncomfortable

See it if you don't want to pay for Sleep No More. See it if you like burlesque style performances.

Don't see it if you are uncomfortable with speaking and interacting with actors. Nothing TOO raunchy, but if burlesque makes you uncomfortable, skip it.

Also First of all, I was at their final dress, so hopefully this gets fixed... Read more Read less

Drunk Shakespeare
Midtown W
Great staging, Hilarious, Intelligent, Entertaining, Raunchy

See it if you know some Shakespeare and want to have a great time. Still a lot of fun, even if you don't know a lot about Shakespeare.

Don't see it if you are a prude with no sense of humor.

73
Great acting, Great staging, Entertaining, Shallow

See it if you want to see an excellent ensemble. The leads are okay, but the ensemble really shines.

Don't see it if you would be bothered by a shallow interpretation of a great work.

Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Indulgent, Ambitious

See it if you like immersive theatre and/or Viewpoints compositions. Not a lot of coherence here, but entertaining all the same.

Don't see it if you don't like being in direct contact with the theatre you see. Or if you don't like reading subtitles.

Also Most of, if not all of, the cast are smokers. This is very apparent wh... Read more Read less

Chelsea
Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Must see, Dizzying, Exquisite

See it if you want a truly unique experience. I seriously can't wait to go back and see what I missed.

Don't see it if you like chemistry between any of your leading players. Also, the book is not so hot.

Entertaining, Funny, Great staging, Long, Intense

See it if you wanna see a great version of one of Shakespeare's less produced show. And if you love EPIC battle scenes.

Don't see it if you don't like Shakespeare. Obviously.
