Absorbing, Clever, Delightful, Enchanting, Funny

See it if mentalism, illusion, and cheeky British men. I was thrilled to see Derren Brown perform live. Great fun, and family friendly.

Don't see it if You don't like magic, or have seen a lot of Derren Brown's televised programs. There's not a lot of new material in this show.

Enchanting, Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging, Intelligent

See it if you can tomorrow. It's closing. It must have really tightened up, because the reviews here are not reflective how fantastic this show is.

Don't see it if If you hate terrific dramas with great acting, and wonderful direction. This show is wonderful.

Disappointing, Excruciating, Indulgent, Slow

See it if if you feel like trudging through an hour of "meh" for 20 to 30 minutes of "clever." This show had a concept that never really took flight.

Don't see it if Don't see it unless you like self-indulgent, thread-bare conceits that seem to drag on forever.

Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Intense, Disappointing

See it if You have an interest in the history of structural subjugation, love the work of Suzan-Lori Parks, and can forgive uneven direction.

Don't see it if You can't stomach feeling like one of Baartman's original spectators. It creates tremendous unease, intentionally--to the director's credit

Absorbing, Delightful, Enchanting, Ambitious, Hilarious

See it if If you loved "Hamilton." This is in a similar vein: a smart, moving, infectious political satire...I loved every single minute of it.

Don't see it if If you don't like musicals, and have no sense of humor.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Intelligent, Excruciating, Resonant

See it if you want to see an ambitious drama that is reflective of the present state of the world, and the many challenges we currently face.

Don't see it if You're sensitive to sound, light, or violent acts on stage. The play can be brutal and sensorially overwhelming at times.

Don't see it if you don't like family dramas.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Ambitious

See it if you can afford it. Even if you think it will fall short of your expectations (as I did)...it won't. Touching, funny, brilliant.

Don't see it if buying tickets will make you be late on the rent. But cut your cable if necessary. It's worth it.

Absorbing, Clever, Intelligent, Resonant

See it if You've struggled w/depression, or know someone who has. An incredibly honest, moving, and funny show which never feels self-indulgent.

Don't see it if you hate solo shows. Though I feel this is one of the best I've ever seen.
