Absorbing, Great staging, Must see, Riveting, Masterful

See it if You are a Harry Potter fan. Even if you are not, this play is so unbelievably staged and performed that you won’t be disappointed.

Don't see it if You hate all things Harry Potter.

Also We sat all of the way up in the balcony, yet still had a great experie... Read more Read less

Superhero

Great singing, Quirky, Disappointing

See it if You like Tom Kitt’s Music- great score and singing

Don't see it if You want a story based in reality. This show needs work. It starts with a great idea, then devolves into the nonsensical.

Ambitious, Slow, Great singing, Entertaining, Disappointing

See it if You don't mind knowing how the show will end as soon as it begins.

Don't see it if You are not into historical musicals. While some of the music is good, the show tells of the rise to power of a long lost heir to throne

Absorbing, Great staging, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if You are interested in learning about how 9/11 affected people from other countries

Don't see it if You are not empathic. This is a thought provoking musical and while there are some laughs, it is about a very serious subject

Sunset Boulevard
Midtown W
Dated, Entertaining, Exquisite, Must see

See it if You love Webber's music. . The story is about an "aging" starlet (this is where it's dated- she's only 50) who tries to make a comeback.

Don't see it if You know nothing of Norma Desmond. Glenn Cose shines, but only if you understand her character.

Riveting, Must see, Great staging, Ambitious

See it if You like immersive theatre. In this production, you are IN the pie shop and the action takes place around you. Fabulous acting, singing

Don't see it if You don't like "dark" shows. This is an immersive dark operetta where the actors are amongst the audience

Ambitious, Confusing, Weird

See it if You can appreciate avant-garde theatre but don't care about good music, character development or continuity

Don't see it if You want a story that you will actually care about. While the staging is incredible, the show itself is awful. It's just a crazy spectacle.

Also Josh Groban was out the night I saw the show, but I doubt that even he... Read more Read less

Dated, Enchanting, Resonant

See it if You have never seen "Fiddler..." It's an important story that everyone should experience.

Don't see it if You have seen Topol portray Tevye. While Danny Burstein does a good job, he doesn't have the same intensity that Topol did.

See it if you are open to experiencing the LGBT life and how it affects families.

Don't see it if you are looking for a light hearted musical..this isn't it.

Dated, Delightful, Fluffy, Slow, Cliched

See it if you don't mind slipping back to a classic and can put aside how dated it is. The acting and singing are superb!

Don't see it if You are looking for an exciting evening. This is a fluffy confection of the past that will make you smile, but never jump out of your seat.

Something Rotten!

Funny, Entertaining, Clever, Delightful, Must see

See it if You love to laugh...and you WILL!! especially if you are a "theatre person" as there are SO many "inside" jokes throughout the show.

Don't see it if You dislike farce and no nothing about any previous Broadway musicals ,as you will probably be confused.

Cliched, Fluffy, Quirky

See it if You like Ruben and Clay and “Silly Xmas Humor”

Don't see it if You can’t give in to the premise that it’s a hokey show. Just go with it.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Entertaining, Edgy, Great staging

See it if You like a true immersive theatre experience coupled with fantastic songs

Don't see it if The subject matter might be upsetting to you (it's about a man who kills people and a woman who bakes them into pies for sale)

Enchanting, Delightful, Entertaining, Great staging, Great singing

See it if You want to engage in a cute show with great songs (and singers),, see amazing sets, cool special effects and have a fun time at the theatre

Don't see it if You disliked the movie, don't like Disney, and want serious "adult" theatre.

Also The show, in its Pre Broadway run, needs to work out a few kinks. Ther... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Epic, Great staging, Great singing, Riveting

See it if You like Incredible performances and staging! A beautiful, heart wrenching story of the war and love.

Don't see it if You don't like musicals that tell their story only through music (there is no dialogue)

Entertaining, Fluffy, Cliched

See it if You love Gloria Estephan and really want to know her life story. Also, you must love her music to enjoy the show

Don't see it if You are looking for deep theatre. This could easily b a TV movie of the week. It's cute, but forgettable.

Edgy, Thought-provoking, Masterful

See it if You like well written dramas with excellent acting.

Don't see it if You can't relate to urban struggles

Significant Other
Midtown W
Delightful, Great writing, Hilarious

See it if You want to laugh! It's a hilarious, yet insightful look into the relationships between a group of friends and their "significant others"

Don't see it if You don't like "talky" plays. There is a lot of dialogue and the story can drag at moments, but nothing is without purpose.

In Transit
Midtown W
Ambitious, Entertaining, Must see

See it if You enjoy great accapella singing, great storylines and edgy theatre. It's like "Hamilton" meets "Pitch Perfect"

Don't see it if You like traditional old fashioned theatre. There is no orchestra- the actors create all of the music.

Confusing, Disappointing, Slow

See it if You have to- but I walked out at intermission (which I never do!). Too slow, confusing, not interesting.

Don't see it if You don't want to understand what's happening until the second act. I didn't wait.

Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Great staging, Must see

See it if you love to be taken behind the scenes of "Peter Pan' and see how J.M. Barrie came to create this iconic character. You will fall in love!

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Edgy, Epic, Must see, Great writing

See it if you can get tickets!!!!

Don't see it if you can't wrap your mind around color blind casting and American History told through Rap

Clever, Thought-provoking, Original, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if you loved the book or the film. Jennifer Hudson is incredible, as is Danielle Brooks. Cynthia Erivo was a bit too contained for me.

Don't see it if You saw the original production on Broadway and think that this will be the same. This is completely stripped down..no sets (just chairs).

American Psycho
Midtown W
Absorbing, Great acting, Edgy, Great staging, Ambitious

See it if You do not want a "typical" musical theatre show. "Psycho" plays with your emotions, much like its lead character. Intense evening!

Don't see it if You are offended by violence and sex and profanity. they are interwoven throught the show.
