About:  I see a show or two most weeks. Traditional and family friendly shows usually don't appeal to me because they're not depressing enough.

Jessica
West Village
Thought-provoking, Entertaining, Resonant, Riveting, Relevant

See it if You enjoy sci-fi plots and plays that focus more on larger themes than the development of individual characters.

Don't see it if You want to see a lot of action and can't suspend your disbelief when it comes to sci-fi plots.

The Layover
Midtown W
Profound, Original, Slow, Funny, Thought-provoking

See it if You enjoy dark comedy, are forgiving of sections that drag on, and like shows with philosophical messages and dramatic irony.

Don't see it if You're uncomfortable with exaggerated explicitness being used for satire, or if you're looking for a happy show.

Head of Passes
East Village
Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Slow, Great acting

See it if You like American family dramas and appreciate great acting. There is little resolution to the plot, and the story poses many questions.

Don't see it if You dislike dramas about American families, or you dislike long soliloquies, or the plot matters to you more than the play's message.

Great music, Intimate, Slow

See it if You like musicals that have shallow characters, and you liked Once.

Don't see it if You want an accurate telling of the story of Orpheus, or you like characters with some depth to them, or you don't like folk music.

96
Clever, Anti-capitalist, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Bleak

See it if You like a story that criticizes its target audience. The show is more about its message than the plot and characters.

Don't see it if You see plays for just the plot or don't like being criticized by the playwright or are in love with capitalism. Characters are unlovable.

For a previous production
Banal, Overrated, Nonsensical, Funny, Great singing

See it if You like shows that are glamorous and you don't mind one-dimensional characters/weak book. Attempts to deliver a profound message but fails.

Don't see it if You like a story with depth and characters that seem real and consistent. The book is no more than simple, poorly written pre-teen pop-lit.

93
Clever, Profound, Hilarious, Experimental, Life-changing

See it if You like parodies and experimental theater. Fu**ing Bird takes breaking the fourth wall to a new level. Masterfully delivered catharsis.

Don't see it if You like a linear plot and need a show to take itself seriously.

During previews
The Antipodes
Midtown W
Thought-provoking, Great writing, Hilarious, Quirky, Great acting

See it if All action has taken place in the past or fiction. Well developed characters. Story about the freedom of story-telling. Absurdist humor.

Don't see it if Non-traditional. Time passes in an original way. Not much 'real' action or conflict. Sexual, bloody, weird. Plot is not the focus.

Rizing
Soho/Tribeca
Thought-provoking, Quirky, Relevant, Funny, Absorbing

See it if You like SciFi and LGBT themes. The SciFi explanations go a bit too far. The play raises questions about discrimination and equality.

Don't see it if You dislike SciFi or you're a Republican. The show can only be understood if you're familiar with LGBT issues. The play has violence.

90
Dizzying, Great acting, Slow, Thought-provoking, Absorbing

See it if You like bleak shows and non-linear stories, and you liked Constellations and Death of a Salesman.

Don't see it if You care more about the plot than the show's message, or non-linear stories confuse you.

92
Absorbing, Great acting, Intense, Original, Profound

See it if You like immersive story-telling where every little mannerism pulls you into its world. If you like avant-garde, this is definitely for you.

Don't see it if You're confused by one person playing several characters and are sensitive to the subject of rape.

Vincent
Midtown W
Excruciating, Insipid, Slow, Failed

See it if You want to learn about Vincent van Gogh's life. The show attempts to be something more than a history lesson but fails miserably.

Don't see it if You like good actors and stories. The story is underwhelming and boring. The actor constantly speaks in a reverent, grandiose tone.

The Total Bent
East Village
Immersive, Hilarious, Dizzying, Original, Great singing

See it if You have eclectic music tastes and enjoy a show with many themes. If you put in the effort to piece together the story, you'll enjoy this.

Don't see it if You like a linear plot and need a straight-forward, strong book. If you aren't willing to think while you watch, then this isn't for you.

89
Absorbing, Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Masterful

See it if You like modern revivals of excellent classics. This production has a modern distorted feel that is not present in the original.

Don't see it if You don't enjoy an extra level of dramaticism and intensity that is not present in the original. This production is absorbing and original.
