Tootsie (NYC)
Midtown W
Not funny enough to sustain long term, Cute, Overrated, Funny

See it if You don’t have high expectations & are content with a simple story and a few laughs. The lead female is very funny...and that’s not Tootsie!

Don't see it if You’re expecting the same story as the movie or are looking for great acting and singing.

Great staging, Great writing, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if Whether or not you’ve read the book, the themes are still so relevant today. Things are rarely what they seem and this story shows that!

Don't see it if You don’t like book adaptations that have to be changed somewhat from the original.

War Paint
Midtown W
Great singing, Great acting, Fluffy, Overrated

See it if You love Patti Lupone and Christine Ebersole.
