Refreshing, Great staging, Intelligent, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if want a great historical, persona look back to the late 40s through the 60s, in the US and Canada with a great one man musical tour de force.

Don't see it if if you are are frightened, disturbed or annoyed by recalling the history of the Cold War, Korean and Vietnam Wars, and the music of the 60s.

Animal Farm
East Village
Thought-provoking, Relevant, Intense, Quirky, Clever

See it if you love a classic George Orwell take on socialism gone animal wild. Can't but help thinking of The Bern crowd, and would they get the point

Don't see it if you don't like primitive staging, & four actors playing about a half dozen roles each. You love The Bern/socialism and hate it being mocked.

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Exquisite, Enchanting, Delightful

See it if you like clever staging, moving music, and loved the Wizard of OZ.

Don't see it if you have young kids with you who could get easily frightened.

Masterful, Must see, Riveting

See it if THE must-see, classic, broadway show with stunning music and sets. I have seen it about 7 times. You cannot go wrong, even in the balcony.

Don't see it if You are jaded.

Edgy, Funny, Ambitious

See it if Quite clever, and quite the dazzling sets. If you are OK with a little irreverence, and a wacky story with non-stop action, go see it!

Don't see it if Way too scary for young kids.

The Sickness
Soho/Tribeca
Edgy, Intense, Excruciating

See it if you are up for an intense, up close and personal night of barfing, drugging, moaning and groaning in an almost pointless play about pain.

Don't see it if you cannot stand staring at a toilet bowl, and bathtub and two sick, sad, moaning drug addicts with no intermission.

Blue Man Group
East Village
Quirky, Funny, Clever

See it if you would love a no plot show with no dialogue, blue faced zany actors who play funny drums, make messes, and act in very zany ways!

Don't see it if you are allergic to toilet paper, loud drums, crazy skits, paint splashing, and a are looking for a show with a plot!

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Masterful, Riveting, Clever

See it if you want the must exhilarating, fun and engaging broadway show ever! My favorite Broadway show of all time. Worth paying and waiting for!

Don't see it if you are old fashioned, and hung up by people of color playing parts of white men and women, or hip-hop music!

Paradise Lost
Midtown W
Ambitious, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You want a clever look at Lucifer's revenge move against God's plans for the human race, & Adam and Eve in the Garden. Good special effects!

Don't see it if if religious stories are a turn off.
