And the damage they do to all, Boring, horrible characters

See it if You love Horton Foote or want to see how poorly chosen a Pulitzer Prize can be

Don't see it if If you want to learn something or feel anything besides disgust

At its worst, Dreadful, Medium good at its best

See it if You need to see every new version of Rogers & Hammerstein

Don't see it if You think Rogers & Hammerstein's music produced at Jimi Hendrix decibel levels is a horrid idea. I ran out 10 minutes into the second act.

Also Shockingly low production values. I'd give this show a C for acting, C... Read more Read less

Long, Tedious, Unpleasant

See it if If you love a good set design

Don't see it if You expect star power from these actors. Or if you're bothered by a creep aspiring to be romantic...and failing.

Heartbreak House
Midtown W
Weird take on a weird play

See it if You're a Shaw fan. It's not perfect, but at least it's interesting.

Don't see it if You think Terry Teachout's rave review can't be wrong, and would be disappointed to find out it's quite overblown.

Travesties
Midtown W
Disappointing, Just ok

See it if you're a big Stoppard fan and like to be reminded of his talents

Don't see it if it bothers you when the actors seem to be having a better time than you are

The Show-Off
Midtown W
As tedious as you can get

See it if you are related to a member of the cast

Don't see it if you value your free time

Also This is supposed to be a comedy. Alas, it isn't funny for a second.

Coriolanus
West Village
Balls-out production, Visceral, Ruined by the lighting--bright lights shine in your eyes nearly throughout

See it if you've been curious about this difficult-to-produce play, and can bring shades

Don't see it if you're sensitive to lights

Audience booed and walked out in numbers, Makes you think the play is worse than it is, Ruined by the director

See it if you don't have to put in much effort to get the tickets...and don't mind a dull evening in a beautiful setting

Don't see it if you actually like the play--and want to keep liking it

65
Shuffle Along
Midtown W
Great performers in a tedious show, When was the last time you listened to eubie blake--ok then, All that pizzazz doesn't make up for a show without characters, music or interest

See it if you love the performers...and you will

Don't see it if you want to pay top dollar for a show that sputters like a Model T

80
The best bubble show you'll ever see, Or feel the need to see

See it if You have some small children who need entertaining

Don't see it if No reason to see except for the kids

An old play made new., And an old play still relevant

See it if if you're interested in the history of theater

Don't see it if you're looking for something hip

Eclipsed
Midtown W
An evening of screeching, Nothing happens, followed by more nothing

See it if You want to see Lupita Nyong'o.

Don't see it if If actors are shrieking, it's because the playwright or director is trying to hide the fact that the material is extremely thin. Case closed

Shaw lite

See it if If you're willing to settle for the stripped down version of a great play

Don't see it if You're a Shaw purist.

Also The original play called for 20 featured actors and an ensemble. This ... Read more Read less

Nor as memorable, But not as good as the movie, Fine

See it if If you want an amusing, highly professional Broadway musical experience

Don't see it if You're expecting memorable tunes, clever lyrics or interesting music

Also The writers have updated the story and tweaked it amusingly. The actin... Read more Read less

It ain't shakespeare, Incomprehensible, Pointless

See it if You have to see all Jacobean drama

Don't see it if you expect something uplifting, insightful, or involving

Also The actors and director work hard to try to make the language and acti... Read more Read less

The Nap (Broadway)
Midtown W
Long, slow build to a payoff that never comes

See it if You liked One Man, Two Guvnors and think that everything he does is going to be gold (but you'll be wrong...)

Don't see it if You're expecting a good play. The characters are dimbulbs and the relationships make no sense. The ending doesn't work at all.

23
The Low Road
East Village
Stupid, Lazy writing, Waste of time

See it if You loved those late-night conversations freshman year of college in which you debated the pros and cons of capitalism.

Don't see it if You have moved on since then.

All unlikable characters

See it if you're a huge Priestley fan (and who is?)

Don't see it if you want to have a positive feeling about Elizabeth McGovern. She's pretty bad in the play.

Also Bizarre choice to take such a dated English drawing room play and try ... Read more Read less

Vile, Horrid, Makes you want to not go to the theater any more

See it if if you think parents driving their teenage daughter to suicide can be really, really funny

Don't see it if you have a functioning conscience

The Judas Kiss
Brooklyn
Snoozy, Uninvolving, Tolerable--and that's about it

See it if You love Rupert Everett. He's terrific in the role, and about the only reason to see it.

Don't see it if if you think you're going to learn something, or want to have something to talk about afterwards.

77
Cheesy fun, It's like the 1980s never died, alas

See it if You miss the pop hits of the 1980's, and liked such spoofs as Airplane (though this is no Airplane)

Don't see it if you feel like something classy

Fun staging, Faceless music

See it if You liked Hee-haw and don't mind that the blue-grass music is now insipid

Don't see it if You didn't like Hee-haw

89
Clever, Entertaining, Refreshing

See it if you like some booze with your education, or education with your booze

Don't see it if you're against booze
