Pericles
Brooklyn
Disappointing, Dull, Uninspired

See it if it's the only chance you'll ever have to see Pericles (one of Shakespeare's lesser-produced works) and/or this beautiful space.

Don't see it if coherent storytelling is your priority; this cutting of Shakespeare's text actually muddies the narrative.

Matilda
Midtown W
Enchanting, Delightful, Resonant, Great staging, Great acting

See it if you love stories that transport you to a different world. MATILDA is imaginatively staged, replete with theatricality.

Don't see it if you're not a fan of Roald Dahl. This musical stays very true to the book.

Great staging, Enchanting, Relevant, Resonant

See it if you appreciate wildly creative staging and set design, or you're curious how theatre can unravel the stigma surrounding mental illness.

Don't see it if you're wary of theatre that pushes ALL your emotional and sensory buttons. This is a show that requires not only engagement, but investment.

Thank God For Jokes
East Village
Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Thought-provoking

See it if you wish stand up comedy could weave inevitable laughter with unexpected, heartrending moments of insight about being human.

Don't see it if you're expecting to see a narrative play. This is stand up comedy - albeit a rare brand of stand up, but stand up nonetheless.

Cliched, Overrated, Insipid

See it if you're a big Cyndi Lauper fan and you "just wanna have fun." You didn't come for a story that challenges you.

Don't see it if you're not one to be easily seduced by empty spectacle or you consider a musical without guts a waste of your time.

Sleep No More
Chelsea
Original, Confusing, Enchanting, Intense, Great staging

See it if you'd dig a "choose your own adventure" approach applied to theatre, or you're enchanted by mystery.

Don't see it if you are expecting Shakespeare's language (this story is primarily told through movement/imagery) or if you require a linear storyline.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Must see, Refreshing, Masterful, Absorbing

See it if you champion original works, marvel at clever wordplay, & pine for theatre so stirring that it stays with you long after the curtain falls.

Don't see it if you're a musical theatre traditionalist who believes it's all been downhill since Rodgers and Hammerstein.
