Resonant, Thought-provoking, Masterful, Great writing, Great acting

See it if you want a play with layers that isn't afraid to challenge the audience (sometimes directly), giving you a lot to dig through afterward.

Don't see it if you don't like meta-commentary or not knowing what's happening, a lot of this play won't make sense until the end of the second act.

Also This play honestly left me a little stunned at the end in how it portr... Read more Read less

Banal, Disappointing, Great singing, Confusing

See it if you love Donna Summer music or just want to see some incredible performances in more of a concert setting.

Don't see it if you're expecting a deeper throughline to learn more about Donna Summer's life like something similar to Jersey Boys/Beautiful

Also It honestly feels more like a concert production of Donna Summer songs... Read more Read less

Desperate Measures
Midtown W
Ambitious, Entertaining, Funny, Great singing, Quirky

See it if You enjoy campy shows about the wild west or Shakespearean-esque plots without the actual Shakespeare, funny songs and an intimate setting

Delightful, Exquisite, Great staging, Great acting, Profound

See it if you love classic musicals, impressive stage work, or just an overall beautiful production with great actors and visuals

Clever, Delightful, Hilarious, Great writing, Resonant

See it if you love all things Harry Potter or always thought Hufflepuff was the "loser" house or even just want to have a fun night of laughs

Resonant, Great staging, Great writing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You want a story about the rise of a news media and the lengths people will go to achieve a goal, with some incredible acting and staging

Don't see it if You want a more serious discourse that digs into the morals of the events happening--this play mostly allows you to make your own judgments

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Great singing, Enchanting

See it if You want fantastic music with a traditional full orchestra and a touch of operatic singing along with heavy belting. Really fun and colorful

Don't see it if You really want fleshed out character arcs and political musings; while it goes into some of that it doesn't quite do enough

Also Overall a really delightful show that's fantastic for kids, and good f... Read more Read less

Don't see it if you don't believe in LGBTQ equality/rights, want a thought piece digging into the politics of the issue at hand

Also a wonderful encapsulation about everything that's great about Broadway... Read more Read less

During previews
Clever, Delightful, Great acting, Funny, Thought-provoking

See it if you love plays that zip by at a quick pace while providing lots of laughs and some deeper topics to think about even after the show is over

Don't see it if you enjoy plays that take their time to ruminate on deeper themes and conflicts, want more fleshed out characters

Also My main complaint would be that the characters can come off as one-dim... Read more Read less
