Some acting flaws, Great dance numbers, Great singing, Entertaining, Clever

See it if This is a fun production, with great dance numbers and some lovely renditions of Cole Porter. If you love an old-fashioned musical, go.

Don't see it if 1 or 2 characters are bad acting caricatures. I was sad to hear "Why Can't you Behave" sung with that nasal showgirl accent.

92
Clever, Hilarious, Funny

See it if you have ever worked in theatre on any level or if you just want to laugh.

Don't see it if you are not interested in shows that are just for fun.

98
Entertaining, Refreshing, Must see, Great staging, Absorbing

See it if You like shows with music that actually have a story to them. I have not encountered anyone who didn't love this show.

Don't see it if You despise shows with music, no matter how well done or relevant.

The Ferryman (NYC)
Midtown W
Thought-provoking

See it if It is a very interesting show with excellent characters and much to think about.

Don't see it if I thought the first act, which is very long, did not advance the story enough.

Napoli, Brooklyn
Midtown W
Great acting, Great staging, Intense

See it if You enjoy seeing shows set in recent NY history. It is well written with relevant topics and good characters. Excellent staging.

Don't see it if You cannot take one single loud event, even though it is spot on. Or if your view of human relations is narrow and strict.

97
Chicago (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Great staging, Entertaining

See it if You like musicals that are fun and entertaining. In spite of the subject matter, it is very light-hearted. Cell Block Tango is my favorite

Don't see it if You must have serious, thought-provoking material to engage you.

Thought-provoking, Original, Intelligent, Great staging, Relevant

See it if You like plays that are thought-provoking and topical.

Don't see it if You want everything explained to you and tied up at the end in a neat little bundle.

Clever, Enchanting, Romantic

See it if You love ballet, and dance. I knew of Robert Fairchild from ballet, but he is also a very good musical performer. Who knew he could sing!

Don't see it if you hate ballet even if it supports a story.

Don't see it if Can't think of a single reason not to see it.

Waitress (NYC)
Midtown W
Intelligent, Great staging, Clever, Good music, Refreshing

See it if You like the music of Sara Bareilles, or you like shows written by good contemporary composers...and maybe if you like pie!

Don't see it if You must have a large scale production number for your entertainment and you don't like quirky.

97
Great acting, Thought-provoking, Masterful

See it if you like shows that have wonderful characters, are well written and thought provoking, even if some scenes are difficult emotionally.

Don't see it if You don't like to see honest depictions of difficult times in Ireland, or if for some reason you only like comedies or musicals.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Great staging, Entertaining, Clever

See it if See it, period.

Don't see it if You cannot accept multi-culturalism and the presentation of historical characters in a different light.

Great acting, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if You can appreciate good acting and staging even if the story resolution and development sometimes leaves you hanging.

Don't see it if You have to have a happy ending and aren't willing to watch a very cynical view of love.
