If you like this person's taste, follow him or her!
See it if you like original musicals, and a few songs that are hummable. And you like to find a theater space wayyy in the back of an LIC gallery.
Don't see it if You don't care for original musicals, or walking wayyyy in the back of an LIC warehouse/art gallery to find the show.
See it if You like one-man performances in a classic old townhouse's parlor, and especially if you're a Poe fan.
Don't see it if You don't care for solo performance shows, as you're RIGHT in front of the actor in the intimate parlor.
See it if ...you want to see Bette Midler in her last weeks in the show, before it closes for good.
Don't see it if ....you don't like great old-fashioned Broadway entertainment.
See it if ....if one likes the drawing-room murder plays of decades past. Also seeing why the show has run for so long.
Don't see it if ....you don't want to see a play performed by rote by the lead actress, who's done it forever.
See it if ....you want to see why a show has been on Broadway for 30 years. It's not just the kitsch factor....the score still is marvelous.
Don't see it if ....you hate to admit that the score, even if it's Webber pastiche of other composers...isn't damn effective.
See it if You like well-done Shakespeare, and in period clothing at that!! (And if you like Heather Lind and/or Alison Wright and/or Corey Stoll !)
Don't see it if You don't like to see insects flying around actors, hoping they don't accidentally swallow them while tackling Shakespeare.
See it if You like Jimmy Buffett songs, or are fine with hearing his catalog given an entertaining comedic book. Also if you just like to escape.
Don't see it if You only like shows that challenge. There's a place in the world for non-challenging shows, and why not this one?
See it if You appreciate film history, and old NYC culture and the career of Al Jolson, and don't mind necessary ruminations about race and religion.
Don't see it if Experimental shows about race/religion/ancient film history rubs you the wrong way.
See it if You like all things Toulouse-Lautrec, and enjoy small semi-interactive shows in a small bar setting.
Don't see it if You think that an actor holding a donation bucket for the theater company at the only door to exit is a bit intimidating.
See it if ...you like shows where the story is a little confusing yet there's strong acting and interesting staging.
Don't see it if ....lines delivered in a mix of English & French, and some actors deliveries a little hard to understand if one isn't bilingual, annoys.
See it if ...you want to see one of the longest running theatrical experiences in NYC.
Don't see it if ....you like shows where rolls of crepe paper (or was it TP?) goes out into the audience.
See it if ....you want to see why a show based on a Disney animated movie has been playing to sold-out houses for so long. It lives up to the hype.
Don't see it if ....you don't like seeing imaginative conceptual updates of animated movies. And if you hate to admit that a tourist show is worthy.
See it if you like Hayley Mills, and a nice group of women with their Irish accents going through various emotions over a night of drinking.
Don't see it if you don't like plays as described above.
