Octet
Midtown W
Profound, Clever, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if you're a fan of Dave Malloy and want to be absorbed into a very relevant work.

Don't see it if You want a fully plotted show.

Alice By Heart
Midtown W
Great singing, Cliched

See it if You're a fan of the Alice genre. Some great performances and a few catchy songs.

Don't see it if You're looking for anything original. It's not.

Cliched, Entertaining, Fluffy, Indulgent

See it if You like classic 90's songs reimagined. You enjoyed Legally Blonde, Mean Girls, etc. You love the movie - it's basically a carbon copy.

Don't see it if You're looking for an original musical. There's not much originality here.

52
Stars in the Night
Midtown W
Ambitious, Confusing, Disappointing, Great staging

See it if You're ok not understanding the characters you're watching or who they are. The final "scenes" are what I wish the whole show was like.

Don't see it if You're expecting anything on par with Then She Fell, Sleep No More etc. The characters are ill-developed and the sound of the train is LOUD.

67
Indulgent, Fluffy, Great singing, Cliched

See it if You like musical revues without any kind of plot.

Don't see it if You want an actual plot. Also some of the songs are incredibly sexist.

Absorbing, Enchanting, Epic, Great staging, Riveting

See it if You're a fan of the Harry Potter universe. It's worth seeing for the magic effects alone.

Don't see it if You're not a fan of shows that rely on effects and staging over strong writing.

83
Absorbing, Dated, Great acting, Profound

See it if You enjoy profound performances (Lauren Ridloff), even if the material is a bit dated.

Don't see it if You get distracted trying to read and watch shows at the same time. But really, it's worth a visit.

72
Ambitious, Great acting, Edgy, Relevant

See it if You're a fan of loud, violent, in-your-face shows. The performances (especially Jonno Davies) are great, and the music is very fitting.

Don't see it if You don't like depictions of rape and torture. Or mostly naked men. The droog's fictional language can also be very difficult to understand.

Fierce & Deadly 1988
Lower E Side
Absorbing, Entertaining, Ambitious

See it if You enjoy a combination of drag ball/murder mystery solving. There is a lot of participation, so don't go if you're shy.

Don't see it if You don't want to move around much, or speak with performers or your fellow patrons. Or you are afraid of too much shade being thrown at you

88
Cliched, Great acting, Great singing, Riveting

See it if You want to see a performer pour his whole self into a performance. You enjoy the music of Pasek & Paul.

Don't see it if You don't want to see a teenage drama about suicide, loss, and extreme anxiety. Apart from a handful of songs, music was a bit bland.

87
Absorbing, Ambitious, Confusing, Intense, Refreshing

Entertaining, Great staging, Fluffy

See it if You enjoy big musicals. You want a light, fun night at the theatre.

Don't see it if You want to hear great music. The music isn't memorable other than one or two songs. They could cut a good half hour.

87
Absorbing, Great acting, Intense, Profound, Relevant

See it if You enjoy theatre that explores our current racial climate. Are ok with being uncomfortable.

Don't see it if You don't want to be challenged. This isn't light, and it's not meant to be.

See it if You enjoy theatre geared toward a younger audience. You enjoyed War Horse (there are puppets).

91
Absorbing, Ambitious, Great staging, Must see, Refreshing

See it if You enjoy alternative staging, and don't mind performers interacting with you (sometimes threateningly). If you enjoy immersive theatre, go!

Don't see it if You're easily frightened, or prefer to be more removed from the action.

Entertaining, Disappointing, Overrated

Don't see it if You're not into overblown musicals. I thought the music was boring, and underwhelming.

Don't see it if You want to know what is happening all the time.

Also You're assigned a character to follow and often don't see other charac... Read more Read less

The Hairy Ape
