See it if you want to see Adam Driver and Keri Russell put on phenomenal performances. The show is a great mix of laughs and romance. A MUST SEE!!!

Don't see it if you do not like shows that are celebrity vehicles. It is a good show but its clear they revived this show sell Adam Driver and Kerri Russel.

See it if there are women in your life that you love. All women and men (with an open mind) should see this show. This show is very important.

Don't see it if you voted for that man or you are a man that does not think that society has ever been slanted favorably to white men.

Confusing, Slow, Great acting

See it if you want to see the legend Glenda Jackson once again give the performance of a lifetime or if you are really into Shakespeare.

Don't see it if you cannot sit for almost 4 hours. The show is very confusing and it is very easy to get lost. It is also very bloody if you are squeamish.

Great dancing, Entertaining, Disappointing, Slow, Funny

See it if You are a fan of Cole Porter and old fashioned musicals. The material can be very funny at times and the dancing is supberb.

Don't see it if You are not a fan of old fashioned musicals. The show within the show is very slow at times and the two protagonist are not very likable.

68
Dizzying, Confusing, Disappointing, Great singing

See it if You are a fan of Duncan Sheik’s music. Colton Ryan and Molly Gordon rise above the troubled material they have to work with.

Don't see it if You do not know everything there is to know about Alice in Wonderland. The book is a total mess and is impossible to follow.

86
Entertaining, Great acting, Great singing, Gorgeous costumes

See it if you are a fan of Cher or know nothing about her. Fans have the time of their lives and others learn about this incredible icon. So much fun!

Don't see it if you cannot stand rude theatre etiquette. A lot of her super fans would not stop singing which is quite upsetting to any true theatergoer.

75
Entertaining, Quirky, Disappointing

See it if you are a fan of 2 time pulitzer winner Lynn Nottage. The show is very modern/relevant and the cast is great.

Don't see it if you do not like stereotypes thrown on stage. The plot was a bit over the top at times.

87
Great acting, Great writing, Depressing, Thought-provoking

See it if you want to see Elaine May's masterful performance. See Lucas Hedges on stage as he rises to become of the most prolific actors anywhere!

Don't see it if Alzheimer's disease is a difficult subject matter for you. The show is very depressing and real.

89
Great singing, Great staging, Intense, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if you want to see some of the most excellent and soulful performances of the entire season. This provocative show will leave you wanting more!

Don't see it if you do not like Bob Dylan. The show's weakest link is the story which leaves a lot of loose ends and can be confusing at times.

25
Excruciating, Disappointing

See it if you love Christmas and off-colored humor. You need to be willing to not think to much into the plot and just laugh.

Don't see it if you are looking for a good musical. It was very disappointing and the jokes were not smart. Would not suggest for a serous theatergoer.

83
Great writing, Intelligent, Hilarious, Intense

See it if you want to see a very truthful look into the lives of high school girls. Some of the material is hilarious yet other parts are very moving.

Don't see it if you do not like seeing really mean characters. Some of the girls were truly nasty and cruel to each other.

74
Entertaining, Great staging, Ambitious, Must see

See it if you want to see one of the coolest spectacles ever done on Broadway. The Gorilla is spectacular. Best puppet work since War Horse.

Don't see it if want to see a good musical. All the musical elements of the show were not good. No memorable music and the book is a mess.

85
Delightful, Entertaining, Great dancing, Great acting

See it if you want to see a Broadway classic. The cast was superb and the dancing was some of the best that I've ever seen. A theatergoers dream.

Don't see it if you are looking for your typical modern musical. Some of the music was a little odd and it is very long without an intermission.

See it if you want to see some of the best acting in the NYC theatre scene right now. Steven Levenson wrote a brilliant script. The set is incredible.

Don't see it if the Vietnam War era is not of interest to you. The show is very intense and can be over the top for those who are not prepared.

See it if you want to see one of the most relevant shows ever done on Broadway. The play will have you thinking for days. The cast is superb!

Don't see it if you do not want to think about the massive divide that has developed in this country. If you are politically conservative this isn't for you

88
Enchanting, Great singing, Great dancing

See it if You want to see some of your favorite songs and some songs you did not know done extremely well by a superb cast. The dancing is stunning!

Don't see it if You want a plot. This is 40 songs shoved into 90 minutes! It can be a lot to handle if you do not come prepared.

Entertaining, Funny, Overrated, Disappointing, Ambitious

See it if you want to see what all the buzz is about. Some of the performances were outstanding and the music was a lot of fun.

Don't see it if think that its going to be like Dear Evan Hansen. It is very strange with all the science fiction. The characters were not very likable.

88
Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Great writing, Hilarious

See it if you want to see an absolutely hilarious piece that also makes you think about the importance of beauty and family.

Don't see it if you cannot handle ridiculous amounts of profanity and inappropriate jokes. Those who are uncomfortable with partial nudity should avoid.

83
Entertaining, Funny, Hilarious

See it if you want a very funny evening. The blue men are very talented and are amazing to watch. If you like dance music and drums, this is for you.

Don't see it if you want a play. The show is mostly cool tricks and interesting visuals. There is not much substance.

Funny, Great acting, Relevant, Slow

See it if you want to see a family drama that feels so real that it feels boarder line intrusive. The cast is great and they have natural chemistry.

Don't see it if subjects such as family problems and depression are sensitive subjects for you. There are some moments that are very slow and need to be cut

92
Enchanting, Great singing, Must see, Funny

See it if you want a stunning revival of a classic which has been refreshingly updated for 2018! Norbert Leo Butz is a riot and the cast is amazing!

Don't see it if the subject of degradation of woman is a complete turn off. However, they do update the show to make it slightly more appropriate.

Excruciating, Slow

See it if you are such a big pet person that anything related to cats and dogs will entertain you.

Don't see it if want to see good writing. The book is basic and none of the characters are likable. The set is all made of cardboard and cheap.

86
Great acting, Intense, Great set

See it if you want to see exceptional performances by all 3 woman (don't forget Ms Pill). Glenda Jackson's performance is one that I will never forget

Don't see it if you do not like plays about the troubles of aging. The play itself would not be all that memorable if it was not for the performances.

70
Funny, Disappointing, Overrated, Raunchy

See it if you enjoy clever banter or a play that discusses very real subjects. The actors were all quite good and it was well directed.

Don't see it if you want to quality writing. None of the characters are likable and nothing really happens from start to finish. It was kinda depressing.

84
Different, Great staging, Great acting, Great dancing

See it if you want to see something very different. This is a play with dance. Susan Stoman created gorgeous choreography with top-notch acting.

Don't see it if you do not like dance. The play is 75% dance and 25% dialogue.

83
Ambitious, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if You have never seen a production of Merrily before. This is one of Sondheim’s greatest scores. The plot is interesting as it goes backwards.

Don't see it if You do not like Sondheim. The show is problematic as the same actors play the same characters in their late 40s and late teens.

80
Ambitious, Disappointing act 2, Great staging, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if you want to see a phenomenal cast take on a show that is a work in progress but has promise. Kate Baldwin is absolutely brilliant!

Don't see it if you can only sit through very polished pieces. This is a perfect example of off-broadway being used to examine new work and make changes.

84
Thought-provoking, Relevant, Great acting, Funny

See it if you want to see a very relevant play about the conflict of loving someone and your religious beliefs. There are some very funny moments also

Don't see it if you do not want to watch another relevant play that reminds you of the times that we are living in.

Enchanting, Great acting, Great singing, Must see, Intense

See it if you to see an incredibly powerful story with soulful music and a star in the making (Jeremy Pope). It's a rollercoaster ride of emotion.

Don't see it if you cannot handle a play with gay themes or do not like gospel/choir music.

Great acting, Intense, Ambitious, Entertaining

See it if you want to see brilliant performances by Ethan Hawke and Paul Dano. If you sympathize with sibling rivalries this is a good show for you.

Don't see it if you cannot handle Sam Sheppard plays. The plot is pretty over the top and loses some of meaning through the ridiculous ending.

96
Riveting, Thought-provoking, Exquisite, Great acting, Intense

See it if you like family dramas or plays that are historical. The performances were great. You will be emotionally invested from start to finish.

Don't see it if you can not sit for over 3 hours. It is extremely intense and will ware you out.

85
Enchanting, Entertaining, Epic

See it if you want to see 5 incredible magicians. It was a nice change of pace as compared to a regular play/musical. You will be amazed!

Don't see it if magic freaks you out or you just don't like magicians.

98
Exquisite, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent, Masterful

See it if you want to see an exquisite adaptation of America's most cherished novel. The acting was superb by the entire cast. This is a MUST SEE!!!

Don't see it if you do not like plays. That is the only reason that I could possibly think of. The show is phenomenal and there is no reason not to go!

77
Ambitious, Great staging, Slow, Disappointing

See it if you want to see Bryan Cranston's phenomenal performance and some really interesting staging with a fascinating use of video/camera work.

Don't see it if you are a fan of the movie. This is a very disappointing adaptation and the novelty of the camerawork wears off after about 20 minutes.

98
Enchanting, Funny, Great singing, Hilarious, Romantic

See it if you want to see a musical comedy that not only provides laughs but tremendous heart. This show will make you cry, laugh, and feel amazing!

Don't see it if you are not progressive enough to appreciate that Love is Love is Love is Love.

94
Funny, Great acting, Great writing, Confusing, Dated

See it if you have never seen Torch Song before. Michael Urie was superb and the show was extremely moving. Required viewing for serious theatergoers.

Don't see it if you cannot sit through long plays. It is extremely dated yet still relevant. The play has some truly tragic moments, not just a comedy.

97
Entertaining, Funny, Great writing, Must see, Relevant

See it if you want to see a fantastic storyteller tell refreshing stories and jokes about life. Anyone of any background can identify with this show.

Don't see it if you are looking for a regular play. This is a mix of standup comedy and a one-man show.

Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if you want to see a play that makes you think, feel, and laugh. All 3 stars were perfectly cast.

Don't see it if you do not want a play that you need to listen very carefully to. The show is all about the dialogue and is not action based.

78
Absorbing, Great staging, Thought-provoking, Ambitious

See it if You want a more detailed understanding of the Little Rock Nine than you would have gotten in school.

Don't see it if You do not want to be reminded of how little progress has really been made in our current political climate.

See it if You love great performances. Samantha Barks and Andy Karl are superb. The tone of the show is different from the movie and is empowering!

Don't see it if you do not want to see another movie turned into a musical.

Entertaining, Hilarious, Raunchy, Fluffy, Delightful

See it if you want to see one of the funniest shows on Broadway. It is raunchy and the comedic timing is brilliant. You're guaranteed to have a blast!

Don't see it if do not want another show about a band. This show is SUPER CORNY and can make your head hurt if you are not prepared to go along with it.

85
Enchanting, Entertaining, Great singing, Romantic, Fluffy

See it if you want to see Patti Murin's hilarious, imaginative, and stunning breakout performance! The music is wonderful. Fans of the movie rejoice!

Don't see it if you cannot stand shows that don't know how to end and have ridiculous cop outs(However that's the movies fault). The scenery is distracting.

Clever, Entertaining, Great staging, Great writing, Masterful

See it if you want to see a show with affects way ahead of its time. Nothing like this has ever been done on stage. If you love Potter, its perfect.

Don't see it if you have not read the books or seen the movies.

Masterful, Must see, Epic, Raunchy

See it if you are ready to have the time of your life at an empowering and creative new original musical. The cast is superb and EVERYONE must see it!

Don't see it if you do not like abstract and sort of out there material. It takes a little bit of time to get into it. If Hedwig was not for you, skip this.

84
Great acting, Riveting, Slow, Intense

See it if you want to see Denzel Washington be as incredible as you would expect. The show was absolutely gripping and left me thinking for hours.

Don't see it if you can't get through the slow first 50 minutes before Denzel shows up. If suicide or depression are triggers one should not see this.

Great singing, Great staging, Enchanting, Great acting

See it if you want to see a great revival of a show that is not done all that often. Anika Nomi Rose and the rest of the cast are fantastic.

Don't see it if you are not a fan of classical musicals. Someone who does not like opera style music would not like this show.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Fluffy

See it if you want a fun evening of theatre! Everything about this show is so clever and cute. You can't help but smile and laugh the entire time.

Don't see it if you want a serious piece. It is very silly and is not meant to be taken seriously.

78
Funny, Surprising, Disappointing, Entertaining

See it if you are looking for fun evening. Was surprised by the intelligence of some of the humor. You must be willing to play along with Randy!

Don't see it if you want a play. It's basically stand-up with a puppet. The quality of your evenings performance is based on the crowds participation.

82
Entertaining, Great singing, Great dancing

See it if you want to listen to some fantastic disco music and see great performances by LaChanze and Ariana DeBose. The cast has everyone dancing!

Don't see it if you do not like juke-box musicals or disco music. The book is pretty thin and at some points confusing with the timeline of events.
