Noises Off
Midtown W
Funny, Quirky, Delightful, Great staging

See it if you enjoy comedy. It's one funny night of innuendo, physical comedy, and schadenfreude. Dream cast.

Don't see it if you saw the show before and didn't like it. It's a good production but if you didn't enjoy it the last time, this won't change your opinion.

Absorbing, Great acting, Masterful, Must see, Refreshing

See it if you love raw, ambitious, and profound musical theatre. Cynthia Erivo alone is worth the price of admission. Best Broadway show of the year.

Don't see it if nope. Go see it. No exceptions.

Delightful, Funny, Glittery

See it if you want a really fun night on the town. This show is a lot of fun with a lot of heart.

Wicked (NYC)

Absorbing, Exquisite, Entertaining, Funny, Must see

See it if you like big budge theatricals with fabulous music. Great mix of good music, performances, visuals, entertainment, and (light) substance.

Don't see it if you do not like book style musicals.

80
Great acting, Great staging, Intelligent, Slow, Masterful

See it if you love watching amazing performances and innovative staging and sets, or if you are a fan of the original book.

Don't see it if you like fast-paced plays. While ingenious, at times the pacing can throw off the speed of the show.

Something Rotten!
Midtown W
Clever, Cliched, Disappointing, Funny, Overrated

See it if you want to turn your brain off for a little bit and just have some fun, or if you like really fun, upbeat music.

Don't see it if you like humor that is really well thought out. Most of the humor of the show is either unoriginal or just a reference.

95
Absorbing, Great staging, Edgy, Epic, Must see

See it if you want to support a broadway show that opens up broadway to a new audience, and if you want to see a really beautiful and touching play

Don't see it if you did not like the original Spring Awakening, if you don't like or are offended by dark tones, strong language, and heavy subject matter.

Ambitious, Great acting, Great writing, Disappointing

See it if you love Arthur Miller and/or intense theatrical dramas. Mark Strong delivers an excellent performance as Eddie.

Don't see it if you're over-hyped. Or rather still do see it, but lower your expectations so you won't be disappointed. Nothing can live up to that hype.

Blackbird

Absorbing, Must see, Great acting

See it if you're looking for a great contemporary drama with fantastic acting. The show is intense but worth seeing.

Don't see it if graphic or dark content disturbs you.

See it if you love seeing original musicals with hilarious, raunchy humor.

Don't see it if if you're offended easily or are looking for a family show.

Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if you like seeing smaller shows. There's not a lot of glitz and glamor but there's so much heart and a great story is told about real people.

Don't see it if you don't like one-man shows. However, you might want to see it anyways. The themes of the show are expressed poignantly because of it.

Invisible Thread
Midtown W
Ambitious, Disappointing, Great staging, Thought-provoking

See it if you love new pieces of musical theatre. The idea behind the story is very interesting and the music is very strong and powerful.

Don't see it if you see lots of musical theatre. While the story can be interesting the structure is standard & aspects of the story become cliché.

Pippin
Midtown W
Absorbing, Clever, Enchanting, Great acting, Hilarious

See it if you like acrobatics, Stephen Shwartz's music, or just an overall great production.

Don't see it if you find acrobatics in theatre just a "gimmick" or distracting.

39 Steps
Gramercy
Dated, Disappointing, Quirky, Slow

See it if you can laugh at anything and everything.

Don't see it if you have a short attention span. I have seen this show before and rather enjoyed it but this production was slow, unfunny, and pointless.

Terrible yet amazing

See it if you are a Full House fan, or if you just want to see the weirdest thing ever.

Don't see it if you are looking for a show with any sort of substance.

Banal, Disappointing, Disingenuous, Fluffy, Quirky

See it if you are big fan of Annaleigh Ashford, she really shines. Also see it if you are looking for a night of light entertainment at the theatre.

Don't see it if you are looking for something original or really funny. The show does not take many risks with its humor or story.

Ambitious, Profound, Masterful, Great writing, Disappointing

See it if you like watching groundbreaking theatre, if you like small/short shows, if you like fantastic performances, and if you are gay.

Don't see it if you want to see a big budget theatrical or want to see a comedy.
