Slow, Pretentious, Overrated

See it if It is thought-provoking.

Don't see it if I found it very slow. The relationship portrayed in the show was very problematic, and I didn't think it was sufficiently examined.

85
Ambitious, Must see

See it if Great production of Fiddler that feels really close to the original

Don't see it if You're turned off by reading supertitles

The Ferryman (NYC)
Midtown W
Epic, Slow

See it if You want to see a traditional type of play about issues that aren't as often discussed

Don't see it if I didn't really enjoy this play, but I'm not sure why... I think maybe it was too traditional for me?

Ambitious, Riveting, Great singing, Dizzying, Absorbing

See it if The music is really the star of the show--Amazing!! The staging is also completely unique and riveting

Don't see it if Unfortunately Reeve Carney's Orpheus is such a lower caliber than the rest of the cast that it detracts from the show as a whole

95
Absorbing, Ambitious, Great acting, Great staging, Epic

See it if It's amazingly relevant and modern despite being almost 25 years old and taking place in 1985. It's one of my personal favorites.

Don't see it if It's long and gets weird. Don't see it if you're expecting a neatly packaged story

During previews
Dated, Entertaining, Funny, Resonant

See it if It shows an important time in queer history, the cast is excellent

Don't see it if It's dated (not necessarily a bad thing) but hasn't been presented in a way that makes it relevant to what's going on today

80
Intense, Entertaining, Ambitious

See it if You missed In the Heights on Broadway the first time. The performances were all very good (especially the actor playing Usnavi)

Don't see it if It's not a professional production. The direction was questionable.

65
Ambitious, Cliched, Great staging, Great singing, Epic

See it if You haven't seen Miss Saigon before.

Don't see it if You're looking for a new take on the classic. It felt like a reboot of the original, which hasn't aged well.

Also I saw the first preview, so I maybe didn't have the best experience

75
Entertaining, Great writing, Profound, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if You haven't seen this classic before.

Don't see it if you're expecting a Broadway or Off-Broadway caliber production. It's a good production, but definitely feels amateurish at times.

95
The Encounter
Midtown W
Absorbing, Ambitious, Edgy, Intense, Riveting

See it if It's enthralling and a completely new way of telling a story on stage

Don't see it if I think it is more of a story-telling experience than a play, which might turn some people off.

95
Absorbing, Ambitious, Great acting, Epic, Great singing

See it if You want to see an ambitious musical that is totally successful

Don't see it if I don't even know. It's great

40
Old-fashioned, Dated, Disappointing, Insipid, Romantic

See it if You like old-fashioned 1960s musicals.

Don't see it if You prefer shows to have more substance.

Matilda
Midtown W
Cliched, Quirky, Entertaining, Ambitious, Dizzying

See it if You're looking for a kid-friendly show with some substance.

Don't see it if You're expecting something very deep.

Eclipsed
Midtown W
Absorbing, Must see, Thought-provoking, Resonant, Relevant

See it if You want to learn more about the experiences of women during war.

Don't see it if You aren't ready for a heavy, thought-provoking experience

65
Disappointing, Banal

See it if You're interested in social justice and sparking thoughtful conversations

Don't see it if This show is actually 2/3 staged reading and 1/3 talkback. Not truly a play by any means

75
Burn This
Midtown W
Riveting, Funny, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if Adam Driver carried this show on his back! What a performance!

Don't see it if The chemistry between Adam Driver's and Keri Russell's characters was simply not there, making the plot somewhat unbelievable

96
Masterful, Great acting, Funny, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if You like NPR. Nerdy, thoughtful

Don't see it if You're only interested in a traditional play. This show is structured more like a stand up special, which totally works!

55
Cliched, Boring, Slow

See it if you loved Once, or enjoy character study musicals. Some of the music was good

Don't see it if you expect there to be a plot or a point to a show.

75
Absorbing, Ambitious, Great staging

See it if Everyone should see Hello Dolly at least once in their life. It's a classic!

Don't see it if You're already familiar with the show. There's nothing new or different about this particular production.

90
Absorbing, Clever, Thought-provoking

See it if Great examination of stages of life for a woman. Very well-written and well-performed

Don't see it if Can feel kind of slow at times. There should have been an intermission

During previews
Boring, Excruciating, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if a play about "growing up" through the eyes of some 50-year-olds sounds interesting

Don't see it if The first two thirds of the show were excruciatingly boring. I'm disappointed because I enjoy some of Sarah Ruhl's other work

65
War Paint
Midtown W
Banal, Fluffy, Disappointing, Slow, Cliched

See it if You want to see these excellent actors.

Don't see it if you really want to know the story the show is trying to portray. I was on wikipedia during intermission trying to piece the story together

Indecent
Midtown W
Absorbing, Edgy, Intelligent, Resonant, Thought-provoking

See it if You can!

Don't see it if You'd prefer a more straight-forward plot-driven show. Scenes repeat, there are subtitles, and it can feel slow, but it's totally worth it!

90
Absorbing, Edgy, Great staging

See it if you're looking for a full theatrical experience with unique music and staging that includes the entire theater.

Don't see it if you prefer a traditional musical or don't want to follow a somewhat complex story line.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Epic, Intense, Must see, Relevant

See it if You like history, musicals, or hip hop. You've listened to the cast album and loved it.

Don't see it if You "don't get rap" or you just want to see it because it's the thing to do.

85
Funny, Must see, Original, Raunchy, Overrated

See it if You like twelve-year-old boy humor.

Don't see it if You are easily offended

81
Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging, Intelligent, Great singing

See it if You like less traditional coming-of-age stories featuring LGBT characters.

Don't see it if You're homophobic.
