Bad writing, Indulgent, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if This is not a light hearted coming of age comedy. It is a badly written play. The second half piles issue on issue in a confusing manner.

Don't see it if The strobe lights didn’t bother me. The herbal cigarettes, the needless yelling, confusion and climatic monologue in Spanish were all bad.

Don't see it if Don’t see if you are prudish about discussing sex!

Disappointing, Funny, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if The show is done in a narrative style and has an interesting point of view about gay repression. There are some funny moments.

Don't see it if The show repeats itself over and over saying the same thing to the point of boredom. I didn’t hate it but I certainly didn’t love it either.

Disappointing, Indulgent, Good acting and singing

See it if This show had good actors and good singers but the play itself is lacking in substance.

Don't see it if If you are a rapid musical theater person then maybe you will enjoy the singing and the actors - otherwise it is a waste of time.

American Psycho

Clever, Entertaining, Masterful, Great writing, Great acting

See it if This show will especially appeal to anyone that grew up in the 80's! The writing is clever & original and the acting is superb!

Don't see it if If you are bothered by sex or blood! The show has adult themes and is not good for a younger audience.

Exile Is My Home
East Village
Confusing, Excruciating, Insipid, Annoying

See it if This could be one of the worst shows that I have seen. Both myself and my guest could not wait to exit. Terrible writing, plot and acting.

Don't see it if I like sci-fi and thought it sounded like a funny show but there was absolutely nothing redeeming about this show.

Drunk Shakespeare
Midtown W
Clever, Great acting, Entertaining, Disappointing

See it if You like a show that is centered around drinking - it is called Drunk Shakespeare for a reason! The actors are great and pretty quick.

Don't see it if If you don't like college type humor with Shakespeare accent and audience participation. At times it could be a little too much interaction.

The Fantasticks

Clever, Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Funny

See it if As officially the longest running show on Broadway it is easy to see why .. Adorable show, tight cast, great script and worth seeing!

Clever, Funny, Great acting, Great writing, Hilarious

See it if You like great musicals with a hilarious undertone about religions effects on society. Even funnier if you grew up in any strict religion.

Don't see it if You hate musicals and don't have a sense of humor about religion.

Avenue Q (NYC)

Clever, Entertaining, Edgy, Great writing, Hilarious

See it if You like irreverent shows and have a great sense of humor, this is the muppets on steroids and nothing is sacred. Both me and my teen loved!

Don't see it if you afraid of puppets or if you have prejudices or stereotypes that won't let you laugh at the world around you and at yourself!

Playing Hot

Great music, Great acting, Great singing, Entertaining, Clever

See it if This was a very entertaining show with good jazz music and a cool way of telling the story of a jazz great! Lots of audience interaction!

Don't see it if The audience is mostly standing but there were a few chairs for people that needed them. Wear comfortable shoes (my only regret)!

Entertaining, Edgy, Quirky, Raunchy

See it if This show is a cool concept if you like role playing and live theater combined. The actors do a great job of staying in character.

Don't see it if If you are easily intimidated by interacting with the actors, if you dislike Avanti garde theater with nudity this is not the show for you.

Also This was a fun show to see, slightly reminiscent of Sleep No More conc... Read more Read less

Tuck Everlasting
Midtown W
Cliched, Dated, Disappointing

See it if If you have never seen a Broadway show before then you will enjoy this show. The actors are good, the dancers are good.. It is just cliched.

Don't see it if If you are into high concept, original plays. Although the components are good the play just doesn't make any statement at all!

Cliched, Disappointing, Good actors

See it if I was disappointed with this play as it had the potential to be funny and touching. The actors were good but it was so cliche I almost left.

Don't see it if I disliked the religious elements of the play as well as the cliche of the characters. This was only saved by the acting ability involved.

See it if An entertaining show about relevant issues regarding public schools. It is well acted and has a well thought out plot. Very enjoyable!

Don't see it if If you are sensitive to the thought of suicide done in a "light manner" or to a gay character then this is not the play for you.

Entertaining, Great staging, Masterful, Epic, Riveting

See it if You want a timeless classic that is being done with an amazing job. fantastic acting, gorgeous costumes, and stage show will blow you away!

Romance Language
Midtown W
Absorbing, Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Cliched

See it if you are looking for a light romantic play with a little family drama mixed in. My 30 year old guest loved it & empathized with the daughter!

Don't see it if You are looking for a serious play with profound meaning. It is entertaining and has some clever dialogue but definitely doesnt go further.

Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging

See it if A classic and timeless show with wonderful dancing, costumes, staging and acting. It is a beautiful show and entertaining for all ages.

Don't see it if This is more of a pretty period piece with great dance numbers so if you are looking for the meaning of life then skip this show..
