Ambitious, Absorbing, Epic, Great acting, Intense

See it if you like to see relevant political theater and you like leaving the theater with things to think or learn more about.

Don't see it if you cannot deal with feminism & activism in a play and the hard truths about our country & the constitution. You don't like one woman shows

Also In my opinion, this play is EVERYTHING a play can and should be -- pol... Read more Read less

Constellarium
Soho/Tribeca
Ambitious, Absorbing, Clever, Relevant

See it if you have kids ages 7-9, you want an intimate one-man show for families + you want to see how artists can blend politics into their work.

Don't see it if you don't want a one-man show with music that relates to current events or a show that is tailored for families but isn't watered down.

Arden/Everywhere
Gramercy
Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Must see

See it if you enjoy the original play and want a new, relevant take on it.

Don't see it if you want to see Shakespeare's text onstage, without any reference to the current European migrant crisis.

Also The Public Works production of As You Like It also used the concept of... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Enchanting, Intense, Must see, Masterful

See it if you enjoy captivating productions, intense sung-through musicals, you enjoy experiences that change your idea of theater.

Don't see it if you strictly want comedy or can't stand non-traditional music.

Also I wasn't so intrigued by the music when I listened to the score of Gre... Read more Read less

Allegiance
Midtown W
Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Resonant, Intense

See it if you love great acting and staging. Allegiance is a musical with a story and message that need to be told now.

Don't see it if if you need a musical that is strictly comedy. Don't see it if you need a lighter plot as this show WILL make you cry.

Bright Star
Midtown W
Absorbing, Entertaining, Epic, Romantic, Great singing

See it if you like a beautiful production that has a great score and performers (especially Carmen Cusack!!)

Don't see it if you like diverse casts or don’t like Bluegrass/Americana music, suspenseful and romantic plots or happy endings.

Slow, Confusing, Intelligent, Good acting

See it if you like Andrew Lloyd Webber and Glenn Slater's music, the movie, rock/pop music, great performances by child actors, and good vocals.

Don't see it if you want something amazing, mind-blowing or original.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Romantic, Thought-provoking, Original, Must see, Exquisite

See it if you love musical theater. You also should see it if you like rap.

Don't see it if you have zero tolerance for rap.

This Flat Earth
Midtown W
Absorbing, Intense, Must see, Masterful, Relevant

See it if you enjoy watching intense dramas in an intimate space about a shaken town in the aftermath of a school shooting with a small cast.

Don't see it if you don't want plays dealing with political issues or if you cannot deal with the stereotypes/tropes as mentioned in Laura 8060's comment.

Also This was DEFINITELY a must-see despite its problems. The acting and di... Read more Read less

War Paint

Patti lupone!

See it if you want to see Patti Lupone perform in a Broadway musical!

Don't see it if you can't stand a so-so score and book.

KPOP
Midtown W
Absorbing, Refreshing, Must see, Epic, Electrifying

See it if you like KPOP, you want to be immersed in a show, you like theater experiences that change your idea of theater.

Don't see it if you don't like interacting with actors or moving around to get from one group to another, you hate KPOP music.

Also As I left the theater, I could feel the rest of the audience's amazeme... Read more Read less

Camp Kappawanna
Chelsea
Absorbing, Hilarious, Great writing, Great acting, Great singing

See it if you enjoy a funny musical that is family-friendly yet has depth in the plot and characters along with good music and acting!

Don't see it if you want a show that is condescending to young audiences - it is a nice musical that is a great introduction to musical theater for kids.

Matilda
Midtown W
Absorbing, Must see, Intense, Delightful

See it if you enjoy witty lyrics and enjoyable score, great actors, a combination of both intense and hilarious scenes.

Don't see it if you dislike Roald Dahl's original book, can't bear British accents, can't appreciate adaptations of the original book or dark comedy.

Disappointing, Cliched, Confusing, Great acting, Banal

See it if you want to see a large cast with good acting.

Don't see it if you want to be transported or be emotionally moved.

Absorbing, Great staging, Masterful, Romantic, Great acting

See it if you like Rodgers and Hammerstein music, great acting. See 'The King and I' if you like extravagant, well-staged production.

Don't see it if you like smaller productions. Don't see 'The King and I' if you do not like classics and the racism in the show.
