Clever, Entertaining, Great staging, Slow, Fluffy

See it if You love shows with dance, romance, and a light plot that skips along between dance numbers.

Don't see it if You're not interested in dance or want characters with more depth. A great deal of the show is ballet, which can bore those not interested.

Tuck Everlasting
Midtown W
Clever, Delightful, Great staging, Fluffy, Funny

See it if you want a family show that looks beautiful that is mostly harmless with a few genuine moments touching on life and death.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy a lighter, fairy tale of a show with a mostly forgettable score with a few catchy tunes.

For a previous production
Profound, Resonant, Great acting, Funny, Heart-breaking

See it if you want a smaller, more human story rather than a big spectacle show. This is an intimate show that tells a very personal, beautiful story.

Don't see it if you want a light evening and a happy ending. This is a bittersweet show that will leave you crying at many moments.

Nathan the Wise
East Village
Slow, Clever, Banal

See it if you're a fan of F. Murray Abraham, or if you want a fable that reflects current religious tensions without much depth.

Don't see it if you're looking for engaging dialogue, deep characters, or moving action.

85
Funny, Fluffy, Quirky, Entertaining, Cliched

See it if you enjoy fun, light shows about underdogs and outsiders. There's nothing too deep or heavy, but it doesn't fail to entertain.

Don't see it if you're looking for something a bit deeper or more resonant, or don't care about drag. If La Cage wasn't for you, this won't be either.

Dames at Sea
Midtown W
Dated, Great staging, Funny

See it if you have a love of Golden Age musicals, tap dancing, and a lighter show.

Don't see it if you're looking for something bigger, flashier, or more modern.

Amazing Grace
Midtown W
Banal, Cliched, Slow, Disappointing, Indulgent

See it if you're looking for a show about faith and American history.

Don't see it if you don't care about a somewhat pointless, romanticized history of a songwriter no one really asked for.

70
Overrated, Slow, Epic, Great writing, Entertaining

See it if you've never seen it before. It's a standard that has been on Broadway in different forms for years for a reason.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy a slower, longer show, or if you need upbeat music to keep you awake.

Aladdin (Broadway)
Midtown W
Fluffy, Overrated, Great staging, Entertaining, Banal

See it if you're a diehard Disney fan or need a big, fun family show with beautiful design.

Don't see it if you can't stand another, ultimately unnecessary Dsiney adaptation that just can't measure up to the original.

75
Matilda
Midtown W
Clever, Great staging, Delightful, Funny, Fluffy

See it if you at all enjoyed the original book or the 90's film, or enjoy talented child performers.

Don't see it if you have no interest in Dahl's work or if you have no time for children's stories.

90
Clever, Hilarious, Raunchy, Great writing, Original

See it if you enjoy dark and very explicit humor with a sweet story behind it. The show is able to poke fun at religion without insulting it.

Don't see it if you want light, family-friendly entertainment, or if you'll take exception to an unrealistic and comedic look at life in Uganda.

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Funny, Enchanting, Great writing, Great staging

See it if you haven't already. It's a mainstay of Broadway for a reason. It's a highly polished and beautiful show that deserves the attention.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy Wizard of Oz retreads or find yourself often disappointed by things not living up to the hype.

80
Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Fluffy, Delightful

See it if you're looking for an evening of light entertainment that makes fun, shallow use of Shakespeare's work as well as many homages to Broadway.

Don't see it if you're looking for anything thought-provoking or emotionally engaging.

90
Clever, Absorbing, Intelligent, Original, Relevant

See it if you enjoy engaging and cerebral shows that took a deep look at people living with autism and how they see the world.

Don't see it if you're looking for quick, light entertainment.

For a previous production
Jersey Boys (NYC)
Midtown W
Entertaining, Fluffy, Stale, Clever, Indulgent

See it if You have a love for Frankie Valli or want a fun, unchallenging night of theatre.

Don't see it if You're looking for a right narrative, something with a lot of depth, or anything fresh and different.

80
Slow, Great acting, Indulgent, Great writing, Dated

See it if you enjoy O'Neill and can take the length. There are several amazing performances with a story that is somewhat dated but still relevant.

Don't see it if the sound of three and a half hours makes you pause. If you're not a fan of melodrama, you may find Jessica Lange may be a bit much for you.

American Psycho
Midtown W
Ambitious, Edgy, Unfocused, Intense, Slow

See it if you're a fan of the movie or enjoy violent, campy horror. The 90's feel is fun and adds to the camp humor.

Don't see it if you want a tight, focused show. The first act is padded to leave the main violence for the second half, and feels like it's wasting time.

99
Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Great writing, Masterful, Original, Relevant, Great staging

See it if you have any interest in modern musical theatre, history, and powerful human stories told in new and exciting ways.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy a new and very modern take on musicals.

The Changeling
West Village
Clever, Great staging, Intense, Slow, Beautiful design

See it if you enjoy a classic show in verse with murder, sex, and intrigue with a dose of humor on the side. Beautiful set and lighting.

Don't see it if you don't have patience for older language or a longer show with quite a bit of violence.

75
Avenue Q (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Funny, Edgy, Raunchy, Overrated

See it if you love irreverent humor and always wanted to know what Sesame Street for cynical 20-somethings in Brooklyn would look like.

Don't see it if you don't care for humor being edgy for the sake of edginess.

70
Chicago (NYC)
Midtown W
Great writing, Entertaining, Dated, Clever, Overrated

See it if you haven't seen this Broadway mainstay.

Don't see it if you're familiar with the show. This production has lost steam and adhere's too closely to Fosse's staging to be its own thing.

90
Ambitious, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent, Original

See it if you appreciate a unique story told without the usual overblown spectacle of Broadway, but with originality and heart.

Don't see it if you're not interested in a quieter, more personal story in a musical.

90
Clever, Funny, Raunchy, Hilarious, Great acting

See it if you enjoy Shakespeare that embraces the crudeness of the source material while experimenting with style and presentation.

Don't see it if you are a traditionalist or don't enjoy crude sexual humor.

80
Epic, Overrated, Great staging, Entertaining, Fluffy

See it if you are interested in spectacular design and the incredible blend of puppet and performer achieved in the animal characters.

Don't see it if you aren't a Disney fan or don't see the point in a somewhat bloated retelling of the original film.

75
39 Steps
Gramercy
Clever, Funny, Great writing, Great acting, Delightful

See it if you enjoy clever staging and fourth-wall breaking jokes that use theatre conventions to wink at the audience.

Don't see it if you want a fully produced and engaging show that doesn't remind you it's a play.

87
Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Romantic, Quirky

See it if you enjoy a fun premise with a little dark humor around the edges of a nice romance.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy Victoria inspired music or a show that makes mass murder whimsical.

85
Entertaining, Slow, Romantic, Great staging, Great acting

See it if you enjoy Rodgers and Hammerstein in any way, or if you love a huge, beautifully produced musical.

Don't see it if older musicals tend to put you to sleep.
