Great singing, Overrated, Great staging, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you enjoyed the Disney movie. It is a very faithful adaptation that captures the spirit of the original.

Don't see it if you are looking for something new and exciting. I found the interpretation leaving something to be desired.

Romantic, Profound, Masterful, Hilarious, Enchanting

See it if you want to see one of the most engaging, uplifting, original musicals to hit Broadway recently. It truly is worth the hype and adoration.

Don't see it if you are looking for a more somber night at the theatre? You aren't looking to cry happy tears? I don't have many answers here.

Funny, Epic, Fluffy, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if you want a night full of fun, laughter, music, and dancing, that is going to leave you feeling uplifted.

The Ferryman (NYC)
Midtown W
Must see, Masterful, Riveting, Intense, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy engaging, shocking, moving theatre. This is a beautiful, engaging, and completely engrossing show. SEE IT NOW.

Don't see it if you have trouble with accents. The historical context is important to the story, and a lot of it is explained through heavy accents.

99
Riveting, Great staging, Exquisite, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy shows that speak to the human experience and stretch the idea of what it means to be a musical theatre show.

Don't see it if you have a hard time understanding accents, or if you are looking for an upbeat, fun, dance-filled night at the theater.

93
Entertaining, Great staging, Great writing, Hilarious, Refreshing

See it if you enjoy broad, bawdy comedy with a twist. Such a fun night out that you also might get something out of. A rare combination!

Don't see it if you can't grasp Elizabethan English quickly. The dialogue is rapid-fire, and you may miss things the first time around.

Hamilton (NYC)

Exquisite, Ambitious, Epic, Great staging, Great writing

See it if you enjoy seeing something unlike anything you have ever experienced before. Prepare to be inspired and entertained like never before.

Don't see it if you have a problem with new interpretations or loose adaptations of history. BUT SERIOUSLY JUST SEE IT IF YOU CAN.

Entertaining, Great singing, Great staging, Refreshing, Quirky

See it if you want to see some of the most crazy talented kids! Seeing them rip into the music on their instruments is truly a sight to behold.

Don't see it if you don't like theatre centering around children. They are the real draw here. Also, if you don't enjoy non-traditional musical theatre.

93
Clever, Entertaining, Great acting, Hilarious, Great staging

See it if you enjoy Harry Potter and want to immerse yourself in a clever, tongue-in-cheek journey that is as hilarious as it is heart-warming.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy or are very familiar with Harry Potter. While it will still be fun, you won't fully understand or enjoy the experience.

Girls & Boys
West Village
Absorbing, Edgy, Great acting, Great writing, Intense

See it if you enjoy riveting theatre that gets you out of your comfort zone.

Don't see it if you are sensitive or easily triggered by violent speech. That's all I'll say.

100
Dizzying, Intense, Masterful, Riveting, Profound

See it if you enjoy engaging, life-changing theatre. Truly the best stage performance I have ever seen.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy unconventional story-telling. There are certainly realistic scenes, but there are fantastical, other-worldly ones as well.

90
Absorbing, Great acting, Intense, Must see, Riveting

See it if you enjoy Shakespeare done in a masterful, accessible way.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy Shakespeare or get bored trying to follow the language. It is rather long.

30
Dated, Cliched, Disappointing, Insipid, Excruciating

See it if you enjoy a more dated story that doesn't have much new to say.

Don't see it if you want something to challenge or inspire you. Or if you want to be entertained.

See it if you enjoy historical fiction or you enjoy original musicals with realistic, relatable characters and relationships.

Waitress (NYC)
Midtown W
Enchanting, Great writing, Intelligent, Must see, Riveting

See it if you want to be truly moved and deeply entertained by a beautiful and fresh piece of theatre.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy splashy musicals that can make you laugh and cry, or you want to passively view and not engage with a piece.

83
Chicago (NYC)
Midtown W
Entertaining, Great staging, Raunchy, Hilarious, Funny

See it if you enjoyed the movie or enjoy classic musicals with an edge.

Don't see it if you are taking young kids. Probably not the best for younger or less mature viewers.

84
Absorbing, Edgy, Great staging, Intense, Raunchy

See it if you're looking for something a little dangerous that will make you think about good and evil in different, gray area, ways.

Don't see it if you are sensitive to violence or adult content. Nothing is graphic, but very suggestive in movement.

Squeamish

See it if you want enjoy some fantastic dancing and fantastical costumes and staging.

Don't see it if you're looking for a plot. At all.

90
Delightful, Entertaining, Hilarious, Quirky, Funny

See it if you enjoy big, splashy, belting musicals, that will leave you with a smile on your face and a song in your heart.

Don't see it if you are uncomfortable with non-traditional gender expressions. BUT I CHALLENGE YOU TO CHALLENGE YOURSELF. You will fall in love with Lola.

A Never-Ending Line
Greenwich V
Great singing, Great writing, Intelligent, Relevant, Funny

See it if You like shows about female empowerment.

Don't see it if You don't like the song cycle style of show and prefer more linear story-telling.

Matilda
Midtown W
Entertaining, Funny, Great staging, Overrated, Hilarious

See it if you have children. It's a great show by and for kids.

Don't see it if you are a giant fan of the book/movie. The lack of magic abilities of Matilda's until the very last minute is frustrating.

14
Cliched, Dated, Great staging, Overrated, Banal

See it if you're bringing your middle school class to a Broadway matinee. It's about the only groups of people who go to this show.

Don't see it if you want to feel refreshed by something original, amazing, and exciting. It's a major snoozefest.

84
Relevant, Overrated, Great staging, Great singing, Ambitious

See it if you are a high-schooler. That is truly the target demographic here. Also, if you enjoy Science Fiction musicals like Repo or Dr. Horrible.

Don't see it if you are not such a fan of Science Fiction. Although the music is masterful, I had a hard time getting into the plot. Just not my thing.

90
Riveting, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy Shakespeare's classic words set in a way that bring new relevance. It isn't an over-the-top re-imagining, but just enough.

Don't see it if you have trouble with Shakespearean English. It isn't the most well known or accessible of his works, so it wouldn't be a good one to start.

97
Network (NYC)
Midtown W
Great staging, Edgy, Great acting, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if you love new and exciting theatre and are interested in mixed mediums. The use of cameras and screens mixed with lighting makes this show.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy intense subject matter or the use of technology on stage. If you're looking for something more traditional, this isn't it.

89
During previews
Tootsie (NYC)
Midtown W
Great staging, Relevant, Hilarious, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you enjoy re-imagining of classics. The original film content has been modernized in a beautiful, thought-provoking way.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy a show-stopper type of full-on musical, or if you are attached to the film in its original form.

90
Enchanting, Great staging, Entertaining, Delightful, Great singing

See it if you want a good, old-fashioned night of fun and enchantment at the theater. It truly whisks you away to somewhere else. Magical!

Enchanting, Great singing, Great staging, Great writing, Must see

See it if you enjoy a great, true story with a fresh, solid structure and plot. The singing is phenomenal. Truly impressive piece.

Don't see it if you are looking for original music. Obviously, this is a revamp of the old classics. That's the point.

76
Dated, Great singing, Great staging, Entertaining, Thought-provoking

99
Delightful, Enchanting, Great staging, Must see, Relevant

See it if you enjoy uplifting theatre that also makes you think. You very rarely find a show with this much substance that is this much fun.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy unconventional, movement-based theatre. This is not your average, big-dance-number musical.

81
Entertaining, Great singing, Great staging, Delightful, Enchanting

See it if you enjoy powerful performances by powerful and talented women and you want to be inspired by a truly amazing life story.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy jukebox musicals. However, this one does use Donna Summer's music to tell her life story, rather than a whole new story.

93
The Gentleman Caller
West Village
Clever, Great acting, Hilarious, Great writing, Quirky

See it if you enjoy shows that play and embellish known historical figures with intelligence and insight.

Entertaining, Edgy, Great singing, Great acting, Raunchy

See it if you enjoy the humor of Matt Parker and Trey Stone. Fans of South Park will love it.

Don't see it if you are extremely religious or easily offended. That's kind of the point.

Midtown W
Absorbing, Intense, Raunchy, Riveting, Thought-provoking

See it if you enjoy gay theatre or theatre with intense, human themes. Good if you want something engaging that will leave you thinking and talking.

Midtown W
Riveting, Thought-provoking, Masterful, Must see, Intelligent

See it if you love classic musicals with a twist or if you enjoy unique staging that plays with the border between outer and inner reality.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy live bands. Much of the music is more focused on instrumentations rather than just voice, as a lot of musicals are.
