Slow, Predictable, Relevant, Ambitious, Great acting

See it if you like period/historical dramas, strongly performed two-handers, and plays that deal with queerness and American history.

Don't see it if you want an emotionally light, or fluffy, night at the theatre. (CW: description of sexual coercion & assault)

Clever, Great singing, Epic, Refreshing, Quirky

See it if you want to see an uplifting, kinda-concert/kinda-play evening of theatre infused with revolution, sci-fi, wonderful songs, & love

Don't see it if you don't like blues- or folk-inspired music, or smiling, or joy. Or mentions of robots. Or humorous/thoughtful veiled political undertones

Absorbing, Ambitious, Clever, Profound, Must see

See it if you want a night of theatre that opens up you soul, that asks a lot of you, that makes you pay attention, that is politically relevant

Don't see it if No reason not to see it. Go!

55
Great acting, Great staging, Indulgent, Convenientally problematic, Brutal

See it if you like intense, heavy, family-based dramas centered around nuclear family (mostly) and hetero older white men (mostly)

Don't see it if you want to leave the theatre feeling happy, you don't like narratives that feature the Bible, or you want a play that centers non-white men

Clever, Great acting, Cliched, Indulgent, Slow

See it if you like period dramas, good acting, and very traditional story telling

Don't see it if you want radical, contemporary-feeling, or an edgy night of the theatre that really explores feminism and the history of drama

96
Hilarious, Intelligent, Masterful, Relevant, Entertaining

See it if you love smart, funny comedies with great acting, writing, and direction; you enjoy laughing, cringing, and thinking simultaneously.

Don't see it if you want to miss a great evening of theatre & experience FOMO when it sells out; you want a serious, dramatic, or mindless theatre.

East Village
Cliched, Excruciating, Indulgent, Raunchy, Disappointing

See it if you want to go to a strip club without going to a strip club with eally good dancing, albeit problematically gendered and stereotypical!

Don't see it if you want inventive, thoughtful complex dance-based work about queerness and sexuality; you aren't comfortable with nudity & lots of dildos

The Moors
Midtown W
Clever, Ambitious, Enchanting, Funny, Great staging

See it if you like Victorian or Bronte-esque spins on love, life, and sisterhood that are quirky and oddball and dark

Don't see it if you don't like quirky, bizarre, or oddball humor

90
Absorbing, Quirky, Relevant, Riveting, Clever

See it if you like complicated, timely and electric work that is equal parts funny and thought-provoking

Don't see it if you don't want to think, or be engaged and only want pure "entertainment"
