Betrayal

Great staging, Thought-provoking, Riveting, Intelligent, Great acting

See it if ... if you want to see how charismatic acting and great, minimalist staging can deepen a thought-provoking play.

Don't see it if ...you want a light, upbeat experience, have children with you, or have difficulty paying attention.

Also Three great performances, led by Zawe Ashton, who is as clear and esse... Read more Read less

Disjointed, Relevant, Intense, Disappointing, Ambitious

See it if You know Coriolanus and want to see a different version. You love Kate Hudson. You enjoy the experience of seeing Shakespeare in the Park.

Don't see it if You like classic productions of Shakespeare. You are unfamiliar with the play. You dislike yelling.

Also I’d never seen Coriolanus before and had read it long ago. I am sure I... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Clever, Funny, Great songs, Absorbing

See it if You are new to this show. Or you love the songs and and want to see the ending finessed for our less misogynistic age.

Don't see it if You hate acting (and in some cases singing) that is a bit lackluster. You are bored by the idea of seeing another version of this.

Fluffy, Dated, Entertaining, Romantic, Cliched

See it if You really love Carole King’s songs. You don’t mind writing at the level of made-for-TV movies of the ‘80s. You need something safe

Don't see it if You’re sick of these songs, you like theatre that is original, surprising or challenging.

Entertaining, Resonant, Intense, Great staging, Absorbing

See it if You are familiar with standard versions of Oklahoma and want to see it fresh. You are okay with change. You love the songs.

Don't see it if You don’t like messing with the classics.

Repetitive, Thought-provoking, Intense, Edgy, Absorbing

See it if ... if you are interested in issues of racism in America, enjoy one-man shows, and are okay with sometimes hyper-dramatic acting.

Don't see it if ... you like fluffy plays or dislike stripped-down productions. This play has one man onstage and one offstage, who has only a few lines.

Also The play may be more enjoyable if you’re familiar with Othello, but de... Read more Read less

Refreshing, Ambitious, Funny, Clever, Absorbing

See it if You are interested in politics and/or the rule of law. You like originality and are willing to go with an unconventional approach.

Don't see it if You are a conservative or a misogynist and don’t want to be challenged. You are cynical to the core.

The Ferryman (NYC)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Intelligent, Masterful, Must see, Great acting

See it if You want to see a rich, riveting, multifaceted play full of life, the bitter and the sweet. Reminded me of Shakespeare in many ways.

Don't see it if You are accompanied by a child, you can’t understand accents, you like only light plays that contain nothing shocking.

De-glitzed, Moving, Resonant, Great staging, Absorbing

See it if You know the show in English, relate emotionally, want to see a stripped down, more naturalistic version.

Don't see it if You love big production numbers, hate captions (tho they are well done), hate to lose some wordplay in the lyrics.
