Dracula (CSC)
East Village
Refreshing, Great acting, Entertaining, Ambitious

See it if you want a modern take of the classic with a strong focus on the women. Mina, Lucy, a female Renfield and Van Helsing are the stand outs.

Don't see it if you want a more traditional approach to the material.

Slow, Great staging, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Great acting

See it if Great acting, beautiful set and costumes. A little slow at first but I like how it builds to a nice end of staying true to ones' beliefs.

Don't see it if You don't like period pieces or want more activity in your plays. This is more food for thought.

Absorbing, Enchanting, Great singing, Resonant

See it if It's a beautiful show about a wonderful moment in history. Lovely singing with excerpts of the lives of the soldiers from both sides.

Don't see it if You want a show with a plot or sets. The staging is very effective but it's a bare stage with minimal props.

Dated, Great singing, Great staging, Great acting

See it if The staging, acting, and singing are absolutely beautiful. Loved the dance sequences. The carousel scene is theater magic.

Don't see it if The story is very dated. The other elements almost, but not quite, make up for it. Still, it's worth seeing if you ignore the story.

Aladdin (Broadway)
Midtown W
Romantic, Fun, Energetic, Disappointing

See it if It's not the best adaptation but is thoroughly enjoyable. Genie is super fun. I'm bummed that Abu and Rajah aren't in it and Iago is human.

Don't see it if You're expecting the movie. It's more of an 'inspired by' rather than a 'based on.'

Quirky, Clever, Ambitious, Great musicians, Great acting

Don't see it if You don't care for John Belushi, SNL, or their type of humor.

Absorbing, Great acting, Relevant, Intense

See it if It's a powerful show that is not at all subtle and makes you reflect on our times. Raul Esparza is excellent, as is the ensemble.

Don't see it if You'd prefer something lighthearted without references to a dark time in history.

Great acting, Profound, Thought-provoking, Intense, Devastating

See it if You want to see a family drama with moments of humor and heartbreak. Elaine May is wonderful, it's such a treat to see her.

Clever, Entertaining, Great acting, Hilarious, Quirky

See it if You want to see the brilliance of Andrus Nicholas playing a rather holier than thou woman of the middle ages. She's deliciously aggravating.

Don't see it if You don't like period plays or farce. It can be a little slow at times.

Also Loved the horse. Jason O'Connell is also excellent. The other characte... Read more Read less
