Aladdin (Broadway)
Midtown W
Entertaining, Fluffy, Great staging, Enchanting

See it if You love the Aladdin movie or love big Disney Stage Musicals. The Genie is a show stopping character and makes the show amazing.

Don't see it if If you want a show with a bit more substance. Great show, but a bit fluffy for my taste.

Masterful, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if You love Harry Potter or cutting edge effects in a show. Amazing production and talent. My Inner Harry Potter Geek was enthralled

Don't see it if You don't like straight plays. If you cannot sit through a show very long. It is a five hour experience in two parts.

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Great acting, Great singing

See it if You love the nostalgia that it brings. Are a fan of the show or have kids who are. Love watching actors have fun.

Great acting, Fluffy, Ambitious, Entertaining, Quirky

See it if You like shows that have a lot of heart and have a crazy talented cast. Have some catchy songs and is quirky. Entertaining enough.

Don't see it if You want a show with a lot of depth and layers. Conceptual shows, or shows about cheating. Has a bit of a masoginistic view.

Bandstand
Midtown W
Absorbing, Delightful, Great singing, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if You love period pieces and amazing singing. Like shows that delve into the psyche of a soldier who has returned home from the war.

Don't see it if You only like shows set in modern times. If you don't like cursing, or if you're overly sensitive about the topic of PTSD

Funny, Great acting, Slow, Entertaining, Quirky

See it if If you like a Robin Hood. Shows with non traditional casting. Great actors. Small, intimate shows. the issues with this show is the writing.

Don't see it if You can't sit for a long time, it's a two and a half hour show. If you don't like mixed modern references and period dialog.

Also I think I could have enjoyed this production more if it was shorter. Y... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Great staging, Great acting, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if You like the movie. It adds a depth that eluded the film. The staging is beautiful and transitions are amazing. Both leads shine in this.

Don't see it if You're looking for something dark or very deep. There is depth to this show, but you dont really feel it until the second act.

Your Name On My Lips
East Village
Ambitious, Great singing, Great acting, Slow, Confusing

See it if You want a show with a talented cast. If you like shows that has strong male characters dominating a show. If you like conceptial shows.

In Transit
Midtown W
Delightful, Entertaining, Great singing, Refreshing, Ambitious

See it if You love acapella music because that is the best part of the show. It has a very fun but predictable plot. The music makes the show worth it

Don't see it if Multiple plots happening at once. Don't see if you don't like thrust shows. Predictable plots bother you. Bothered by gay story lines.
