Funny, charming genius of a man performs illusions

See it if you are interested in magic/mind reading/ cognitive illusions

Don't see it if you want to see a play

45
Disappointing, Confusing, Bad directing, Mediocre acting, Ambitious

See it if you can get really cheap tickets and are curious about this production

Don't see it if you love the glass menagerie. Gold kind of ruins the play

89
Clever, Funny, Great acting, Great staging, Relevant

See it if you are interested in female issues, want a clever, relevant 90 min monologue that functions like a debate, offering dozens of perspectives

Don't see it if you don't like being told what the right point of view is by the play/playwright

For a previous production
Slow, Fluffy, Great singing, Great acting, Weak plot

Confusing, Disappointing, Excruciating, Raunchy, Slow

See it if You want to support a young playwright/director and young actors

Don't see it if I feel bad writing a bad review because they're clearly not professionals. The writing was awful and offensive. I left at intermission.

Entertaining, Fluffy, Quirky, Great staging, Confusing

See it if You want a cute farce about Parisian romance. If you admire an actor's ability to play different roles/accents in one show.

Don't see it if You want really deep or thought provoking content/writing. Or a really good farce.

95
Clever, Delightful, Great acting, Hilarious, Great staging

See it if You love theatre, you'll get all the references. You love big, showy, funny broadway. Similar to Book of Mormon but less risqué or political

Don't see it if It's your first broadway show. It's great but it has a lot of allusions to other shows/musicals/broadway movies that you don't want to miss

Delightful, Great acting, Riveting, Funny, Slow

See it if You love the actors, love intimate, detailed connection between two actors.

Don't see it if see it!

Delightful, Great singing, Mediocre book, Great staging, Cute

See it if you want a light, fun, musical experience.

Don't see it if you want a deep, riveting dramatic piece or if you don't like a cappella music

92
Thought-provoking, Relevant, Profound, Masterful, Great acting

See it if you want an experience that's more than entertainment, you want to learn from Parks, see great acting, come to your own conclusions

Don't see it if you want a narrative/are confused by a lack of one. This is an avant-garde, ritualistic, episodic piece. It's not an August Wilson play.

Great acting, Great singing, Entertaining, Slow, Incohesive

See it if You want the best example of what it means to act through song. Great connection between the actors. Wonderful, heart-warming singing.

Don't see it if You want a melodrama, or intense climactic plot. The story was a little weak and these two actors deserve better material!

88
Absorbing, Funny, Great acting, Great writing, Relevant

See it if you want a tightly written, realistic drama propelled forward by actors who nail the comedy in this otherwise serious play.

Don't see it if you want light theatre purely for entertainment or if you like all the conflict to be between characters, as opposed to the world as well

94

Clever, Great acting, Great staging, Funny, Quirky

Delightful, Enchanting, Cliched, Fluffy, Slow

See it if You have a great appreciation for beautiful staging, or fun, adventurous content. The end is great but otherwise it's okay.

Don't see it if You are looking for great writing or a great score. Some good songs, not all though.

92
Resonant, Refreshing, Delightful, Absorbing, Relevant

See it if You want to experience a heartbreakingly beautiful story that will always remain relevant to modern audiences.

Don't see it if You prefer fast-paced, thrilling, highly comedic theatre.

Funny, Great acting, Great staging, Original, Intelligent

See it if You want to see more than yet another lovely female ingenue falling in love with a man. If you love Judy Kuhn from your childhood.

Don't see it if You want a simple, really easy to follow plot purely for entertainment. There's a fine line between intelligent and confusing with this play
