Hundred Days
East Village
Clever, Enchanting, Quirky, Refreshing, Entertaining

See it if You aren't expecting a traditional play/musical and are willing to be swept up by The Bengsons' music and story.

Don't see it if You aren't into the idea of a story-driven folk-punk concert, which is what this basically is.

95
Absorbing, Clever, Exquisite, Great staging, Riveting

See it if This was my favorite show of the year. The great story and score presented by an incredible cast, stripped down and presented anew.

Don't see it if you only like traditional staging of big Broadway muscials

Also Definitely spring for good seats and the pie! I got a "twisting view" ... Read more Read less

Uncommon Sense

Clever, Entertaining, Great acting

See it if you want a well-crafted exploration of people living on the autism spectrum

Don't see it if you expect it to break any new ground with the subject or the style

Also This venue is not great. Worst was the fact that the house staff let p... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging, Refreshing, Intense

See it if Interesting script and extremely well-executed production (design, direction, and performance).

Don't see it if The script ultimately left me unsatisfied. Why did this story need to be told?

During previews
Absorbing, Ambitious, Delightful, Resonant, Great acting

See it if you want to be able to brag that you saw the off-Broadway production before Jordan Roth inevitably takes it to a commercial Broadway run

Don't see it if you don't want a moving, funny night at the theatre

Also Micheal Urie displayed hints of a bad Harvey Fierstein impression a fe... Read more Read less

A Piece of My Heart
East Village
Resonant, Profound, Great acting, Slow

See it if you want to see some incredible storytelling about the women who served in Viet Nam.

Don't see it if you aren't prepared for a slow, emotional journey

Also I normally avoid non-union off-off-broadway shows unless they're new w... Read more Read less

During previews
Clever, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Slow

See it if you like smart plays that are all dialog with little action and are interested in discussions of theology, philosophy, and history.

Don't see it if you need an exciting plot and lots of visual stimulus.

Also I can't imagine why one of the reviews here says "don't see it if you'... Read more Read less

Clever, Intelligent, Relevant, Profound, Intense

See it if your mind is open enough to see a comedy about the rape of a 15-year-old girl

Don't see it if you need the playwright to spoon-feed the message of the play to you (although he basically does so in the last 5 minutes)

Also If you're going to write a play that is a comedy about the rape of a 1... Read more Read less

Marvin's Room
Midtown W
Resonant, Profound, Great acting

See it if you like family dramas and want to see a top-notch cast and clever design

Don't see it if you need fast-paced action and a clean, satisfying ending

For a previous production
Banal, Excruciating, Great staging, Overrated, Indulgent

See it if you like Monty Python-style humor and can stand a 2+ hour show with absolutely no plot.

Don't see it if you assume, based on how well the show has been received, that there must be some kind of "hook" or plot. There is not.

Absorbing, Masterful, Must see, Resonant, Riveting

See it if you are a human being and have the ability to do so.

Don't see it if you have no soul.

Prince of Broadway
Midtown W
Entertaining, Great singing, Great staging, Fluffy, Indulgent

See it if you're a Broadway die-hard already familiar with Hal Prince's work and want to see a well-staged revue with a talented cast.

Don't see it if you are expecting anything more than song and dance. It's a revue.

Balls
Midtown E
Clever, Entertaining, Quirky

See it if you're interested in the story of Billie Jean King and want to see the "Battle of the Sexes" told in a clever way

Don't see it if Don't come early if you don't want audience participation. Two clowns hang out in the house and harass audiences before the show.

During previews
Delightful, Funny, Entertaining, Great writing, Hilarious

See it if you want a play that will make you laugh your ass off, that also has some depth

Don't see it if you don't find the typical sassy, single, aging, insecure gay man trope funny (but there's more to this play than that).

Actually
Midtown W
Clever, Ambitious, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Intelligent

See it if Somehow this play tells the same story we've heard a thousand times and manages to feel completely fresh and thought-provoking.

Don't see it if Don't come in with any expectations about what a story about college sexual assault is going to be and how it's going to end.

During previews
Clever, Overrated, Great staging, Enchanting

See it if you want to see a show that really belongs in a smaller house, but will settle for and out-of-scale Broadway production.

Don't see it if you need a fast-paced, high-energy musical.

Also I think I would have LOVED this show at the Atlantic. It's subtle and ... Read more Read less

Chelsea
Ambitious, Disappointing, Great acting, Slow

See it if you want to see some great actors perform an intense but cliché script

Don't see it if you want to see a play that breaks new ground.

Clever, Entertaining, Great acting, Disappointing

See it if you want in interesting show about aging

Don't see it if you are ok with the fact that the third scene offers zero payoff after a great buildup in the first two.

Clever, Enchanting, Great acting

See it if you want to see great actors in fun, refreshing, if not groundbreaking production

Don't see it if you hate Shakespeare, are a Shakespeare purist, or are only interested in truly inventive productions of Shakespeare

Also I didn't particularly thing the Stephen Schwartz music really added an... Read more Read less

Insipid, Excruciating, Banal, Cliched, Boring

See it if you're a masochist. Who got a free ticket.

Don't see it if you're not into a really poorly-written 45-minute 2-dimensional show.

Also No one knows who writer/producer/director Arnold L. Cohen is. There's ... Read more Read less

Overrated, Entertaining

See it if you have low expectations going in and love the film.

Don't see it if you expect the score to be on the same level as MATILDA, Tim Minchin's other Broadway musical. I literally cannot remember a single song.

During previews
Confusing, Intense

See it if You're already familiar with the story and like highly stylized theatre

Don't see it if You haven't seen the book or read the movie and prefer a straightforward plot and naturalistic acting.

Afterglow
Midtown W
Refreshing, Relevant, Enchanting, Clever, Thought-provoking

See it if you want an engaging, sexy, emotional story about one poly/open relationship.

Don't see it if you ONLY want to see three naked dudes onstage and don't actually want a complicated story. I was expecting the former, but not the latter!

52
Curvy Widow
Midtown W
Banal, Cliched, Disappointing, Indulgent, Slow

See it if you are a nice Midwestern lady who wants to feel a little naughty

Don't see it if you're expecting it to actually be as sexy as they'd like you to believe, or you want a musical with great music and lyrics.

Also Nancy Opel really does a great job with what little she's given though... Read more Read less
