The Thin Place
Midtown W
Clever, Great writing, Thought-provoking, Slow, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy shows that make you think; you don't mind suspense.

Don't see it if you don't want to be slightly spooked.

Profound, Great acting, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy flawed-but-strong women portrayed on stage; you want beautiful acting performances; you enjoy shows under 90 minutes.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy naturalism interrupted by small surreal moments, you want to see a longer show.

During previews
Resonant, Indulgent, Fluffy, Excruciating, Disappointing

See it if you want some quick jabs at Trump, quirky numbers, and a predictable storyline

Don't see it if you're a fan of 45, you want things to pass the Bechdel test, you want to watch the acting exercise of actors trying to work w/bad writing.

Aladdin (Broadway)
Midtown W
Entertaining, Indulgent, Overrated

See it if you want a fun, campy night at the theatre.

Don't see it if you expect Tony worthy performances or anything too deep.

Paramour
Midtown W
Cliched, Ambitious, Disappointing, Excruciating, Indulgent

See it if you're coming for beautiful circus acts.

Don't see it if you want a real Broadway musical experience. Paramour is a Cirque show tied together with a weak score and even weaker book.

Don't see it if cliched relationship tropes are tired to you

Memorare
Greenwich V
Great acting, Intelligent, Relevant, Resonant, Thought-provoking

See it if you appreciate shows that are specifically timed politically, you want to challenge your ideas about race

Don't see it if you hate seeing theatre in an unconventional setting

Clever, Entertaining, Great staging

See it if you want to laugh or have fun; if you have a decent amount of theatre knowledge and like tongue-in-cheek humor.

Don't see it if you're not a "theatre person"– a lot of the humor will go over your head.

80
Clever, Relevant, Resonant, Slow

See it if you're willing to be patient, the technique of an actor interests you, you like shows that are more theatre than plays.

Don't see it if you don't like experimental theatre or a show with a character driven plot.

Chicago (NYC)
Midtown W
Minimalist, Entertaining, Clever, Raunchy, Classic

See it if you haven't before, or if you love the movie! It's a classic for a reason; this revival is clever and fun.

Don't see it if you're expecting absolutely groundbreaking performances. The acting is good, but not great. Much of the cast has been in the show too long.

Anastasia (NYC)
Midtown W
Cliched, Disappointing, Slow, Overrated, Indulgent

See it if you like to see beautiful costumes, are willing to wait until the second act for some excitement, or have children.

Don't see it if you saw the original movie or have high expectations.
