Who's Holiday!
Midtown W
Clever, Delightful, Funny, Fluffy

See it if You find the idea of a swearing Cindy Lou Who hilarious, You enjoy laughing, You are looking for something holiday-ish that isn't cliche

Don't see it if you expect a traditional Christmas feel good story, you would find a swearing Cindy Lou Who offensive, your sense of humour is dull

Also For the most part Who's Holiday is hilarious, light, fun, and marvelou... Read more Read less

Curvy Widow
Midtown W
Disappointing, Indulgent, Over reaching, Superficial

See it if You enjoy Nancy Opel, you don't need much of a story to enjoy a night of theatre, stereotypes don't bother you

Don't see it if You want a realistic portrayal of dating in midlife, want a story that has a thread, stereotypes in character and casting will bother you

Also I had high hopes for this show as I thought the premise sounded great,... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Confusing, Disappointing

See it if you are interested in a modern, minimalist, movement heavy version of the story. It is 90 minutes without intermission so it moves fast

Don't see it if You loved the movie or book, find British slang difficult to follow, or if you have expectations of a deeper telling of the story.

Of Human Bondage

Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging, Must see, Riveting

See it if You enjoy drama relevant to the human condition, absorbing characters masterfully offered, staging that enhances and enriches the performanc

Don't see it if You don't want to think too deeply, you don't want to/aren't able to sit through a 2.5 hour show

Clever, Entertaining, Great staging, Refreshing

See it if you love non-traditional theatre, humour, non-Hollywood endings, a little bit of edge to your broadway.

Don't see it if You strongly prefer traditional Broadway musicals, you want a happy ending.

Also I found this show to be thoroughly engaging and entertaining, as well ... Read more Read less

20th Century Blues
Midtown W
Funny, Fresh, Entertaining, Relevant

See it if you enjoy acting that is subtle and strong, you are aging, you think life continues after 30, you know the struggle is real

Don't see it if You don't like women and women's issues, you think life ends at 30, you are not interested in generational issues

Also This production was solid and well produced, although the writing at t... Read more Read less

Marvin's Room

Absorbing, Great acting, Masterful, Intelligent, Thought-provoking

Don't see it if You prefer hollywood endings, you don't enjoy seeing human emotions laid raw

Oslo (Broadway)
Upper W Side
Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if You enjoy historical drama, wonderful acting, an engaging script, a riveting story, and waffles :-)

Don't see it if You are not able to watch a three hour drama (although it does not feel like it until you try to stand up), you are not a fan of subtle

Also I absolutely loved this drama. I also had no idea about this part of o... Read more Read less

Chelsea
Banal, Disappointing, Chaotic, Over reaching

See it if You aren't concerned with story telling, hated Sleep No More, want to be spoon fed a story that doesn't really go anywhere, or get a free tx

Don't see it if If you liked Sleep No More and want an immersive experience don't go. If you want a linear and clear story, don't go.

Also I felt like I was being led by the nose to experience story bursts tha... Read more Read less
