Log Cabin
Midtown W
Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if You like living room dramas spread with Sorkin-esque dialogue and humor. You enjoy watching characters talk themselves into their own graves

Don't see it if You’re not down to question some deeply-engrained assumptions about gender, privilege, sexuality, or will find a sitcom-like structure inane

Also While I found some of the acting rather stiff at times, and a certain ... Read more Read less

Resonant, Relevant, Ambitious, Great singing, Intense

See it if You’re looking for some powerful theatre that finds play in the most tragic places, pushes the form, and tells a story that is long overdue

Don't see it if You’re uncomfortable with participatory theatre

The Stone Witch
Midtown W
Enchanting, Dated, Disappointing, Cliched, Slow

See it if you enjoy the merging of fantasy and realism, appreciate a beautiful set, and can stand some meaningless plot lines & cliched dialogue

Don't see it if you want to see a well-written show. A few things fall short here

For a previous production
Pop Punk High
Greenwich V
Entertaining, Funny, Quirky

See it if you like up-close-and-personal rock musicals in a bar setting and can dig some pop punk nostalgia and teen-angst comedy

Don't see it if you want something thoughtful and contemplative--this is loud, light, brash fun

Uncommon Sense
East Village
Ambitious, Fun, Touching, Fluffy

See it if you want a sweet, thoughtful performance trying to tackle some sticky matter

Don't see it if you're looking for the next Laramie Project and serious performance chops

For a previous production
Funny, Fluffy, Clever, Entertaining

See it if you love Noises Off-style farce & drama-about-drama, or want a silly night to laugh your butt out of your velvet seat

The Diana Tapes
Soho/Tribeca
Absorbing, Great acting, Ambitious, Intelligent

See it if you'd like a well-written take on Diana about the control of info, w/great performers who make the characters their own & minimalist staging

Don't see it if you know everything about the Diana tapes already / expect to see Diana incarnate back from the dead

Also Would have loved to see a fully-fleshed naturalistic staging, but unde... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Funny, Intelligent, Refreshing, Relevant

See it if you want to see some really great female-driven theatre, intelligently written and performed, and emotionally resonant

Don't see it if you seek something other than a family drama

Ms. Estrada
Soho/Tribeca
Entertaining, Ambitious, Edgy, Funny, Fluffy

See it if you like high-energy, satirical comedy that pushes boundaries, led by a heroic cast

Don't see it if stereotyped characters such as frat bros, ditzes, and academics will grate you--if you seek a night of profound feminism

79
Clever, Enchanting, Great staging, Only occasionally indulgent, Delightful

See it if you love fairy tales, the hero's journey, inventive staging and clever character work

Don't see it if young children in the audience will annoy you, or if you get frustrated with expressionistic snowflake dancing

68
Ambitious, Quirky, Disappointing but still fun, Entertaining, Not as funny as i wanted it to be

See it if you're a super-fan of Spongebob, have a family with kids, or want to see a silly show.

Don't see it if you expect it to be as funny as the OG Spongebob cartoons, or you want something sharp and full of depth

79
Great singing, Romantic, Intense, Dated

See it if you like epic, grand-scale shows w/ ballads and song-speak. By the same people as Les Miserables--a good litmus test for if you'd like this

Don't see it if you don't like Les Mis or have problems with the politics of the Madame Butterfly effect... probably skip this one

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Absorbing, Delightful, Masterful, Resonant

See it if Truly a masterwork, this show is absolutely worth the hype. See it if you love musicals, epic storytelling, fun, and masterful characters.

Don't see it if There is something about this show that appeals to everyone, but if you hate everything about musical theatre, pass until tickets are cheap!
