West Side Story
Midtown W
Intense, Edgy, Entertaining, Dated, Ambitious

See it if I was super glad to see a more diverse cast, lots of great singing and choreography.

Don't see it if this is still a play about POC written by white folk with lots of fake face tats + videos of the cast walking in alleys making 'gang' poses.

The Sickness
Soho/Tribeca
Slow, Excruciating, Dated

See it if you wish the drug withdrawal scenes in "requiem for a dream" or "trainspotting" could be less artful and more repetitive/boring.

Don't see it if these folks clearly have acting talent, but this play is not good. I wasn't offended or shocked by the content, I was bored.

About Love
East Village
Great writing, Great acting, Great singing, Great staging, Enchanting

See it if You love excellent storytelling and seamless, fluid staging with a cast so impressive they will surely become crazy famous pretty soon.

Don't see it if You want a traditional musical.

Orpheus & Eurydice
Soho/Tribeca
Delightful, Clever, Absorbing, Romantic, Great singing

See it if You love contemporary musical takes on greek mythology by 4 incredibly talented and charming performers.

Don't see it if You don't like musicals or fun or great storytelling?

78
Quirky, Great staging, Entertaining, Funny

See it if Youre a big fan of the source material, but not so big a fan that you will be nitpicky about the differences.

Don't see it if The music was forgettable (with the obvious exception of the Harry Belafonte tune) but it was bunches of silly fun.

89
Great staging, Intense, Enchanting, Epic

See it if I was skeptical that I would like this show, as I haven't read the books, but holy smokes, it was awesome.

Don't see it if if you didn't read the books, you are ok, but it was helpful that I had seen some of the movies.

89
Monsoon Season
West Village
Intense, Funny, Great staging, Great acting

See it if super great acting and a clever narrative split between the diverging perspectives of two characters who are both horrible (and hilarious).

Don't see it if There's some domestic violence and other adult themes. Could be scary for some.

83
Funny, Resonant, Intense, Great writing

See it if the writing and performances are excellent. I laughed a lot more than I expected to.

Don't see it if It's dark and sad at times. There's a lot of subtle, nuanced and well- performed monologuing which to some might be slow.

(A)loft Modulation
Midtown W
Great music, Great staging, Intense

See it if You are a fan of jazz - the music is outstanding.

Don't see it if The narrative device where it goes back and forth in time, and the tapes stuff was confusing.

71
FEAR
West Village
Absorbing, Entertaining, Intense

See it if You like entertaining, well acted, whodunnits.

Don't see it if You want something super profound.

71
An Enchanted April
Midtown W
Romantic, Dated, Great singing

See it if It's kind of a Rom-Com where everyone ends up with their original partner even if they sucked? But the signing and performances are great.

Don't see it if I wanted it to focus on the development of the women's friendships but by act 2, it defaults back to their relationships with men.

75
Tootsie (NYC)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Dated, Hilarious

See it if You loved the movie. This is a super fun re-imaging of a classic, with a brilliant cast and many clever changes to the original.

Don't see it if The musical tries and fails to authentically address misogyny - which is incredibly difficult given the source material and concept.

81
Absorbing, Intense, Great acting

See it if you want to see an excellent ensemble cast, smart dialogue and a unique, gripping story.

Don't see it if It's not for kids, or anyone disturbed by violence/guns.

80
Great singing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You are a big enough Shakespeare fan that you'd enjoy seeing his lesser-known work re-imagined by a kickass group of women.

Don't see it if You don't like Shakespeare, or are a misogynist, or hate awesome fight scenes.

95
Relevant, Must see, Clever, Edgy, Ambitious

See it if you want to see how the pros can transform a dated script/songbook into something relevant and edgy without changing a single word.

Don't see it if you are expecting anything similar to previous productions of Oklahoma. This could not be more delightful different.

90
Life Sucks.
Midtown W
Hilarious, Great acting, Funny, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you like laughing a whole bunch and watching some truly inspired performances and clever dialogue.

Don't see it if you expect a strong narrative/arch or action - this is mostly about complicated relationships and feelings - not much actually "happens".

85
Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Entertaining, Enchanting, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you like strong women characters, and a twist on the traditional fairytale.

Don't see it if you don't like musicals?

92
Queen of Hearts
Brooklyn
Dizzying, Exquisite, Enchanting, Delightful, Absorbing

See it if You love burlesque, circus arts, pop music and are queer-friendly. The production, the performances, the venue are all outstanding.

Don't see it if You are in any way prudish.

58
Clever, Disappointing, Offensive, Funny, Dated

See it if The music is great, it is definitely clever and entertaining-- but...

Don't see it if You care that a majority of the jokes are at the expense of black people. The portrayal of Africa intended to be edgy is just offensive.

70
Rules of Desire
Midtown W
Entertaining, Edgy, Intense, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You like stories with twists, stories that challenge you to empathize with 'bad' guys, and some surprisingly excellent acting.

Don't see it if I was surprised to not leave this play offended, but there are some confusing messages about consent, misogyny and power here.

85
Intense, Resonant, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if Everyone on that stage is a pro, a flippin' professional. There's not a single slow moment.

Don't see it if You are uncomfortable with shows that address challenging topics or violence.

75
Absorbing, Ambitious, Great writing, Quirky, Confusing

See it if I truly had no idea what I was in store for and I am still not quite sure what I saw, but he is a masterful storyteller with a unique style.

Don't see it if You are expecting something super polished or light-hearted, he goes to some unexpectedly dark places with this show.

69
Indulgent, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if Overall, I appreciated the attempt to make a musical with such an odd, sci-fi premise. It was definitely funny.

Don't see it if I dunno, it's been a few months since I saw it and I was so 'meh' about it that I don't remember exactly why.

84
Nutcracker Rouge
Brooklyn
Great staging, Raunchy, Edgy, Entertaining

See it if This is an expert-level burlesque/cabaret, like a typical Tchaikovsky ballet but with way less clothing and far more glitter.

Don't see it if Not for kids, prudes or homophobes.

58
Broken Story
East Village
Overacted, Slow, Cliched

See it if You know someone in the show?

Don't see it if The big mystery reveal centers around a cheap narrative shortcut (someone having been secretly adopted).

71
Entertaining, Great writing, Intelligent

See it if You love Sam Shepard's writing. Also the set design was excellent.

Don't see it if It feels at times a little amateurish, but overall well done.

79
Linda Vista
Midtown W
Edgy, Raunchy, Great writing, Great acting

See it if You like seeing toxic men get their come-uppins. Also, it is funny and sad and well acted, with some strong women side characters.

Don't see it if The women are seemingly only there to help our anti-hero learn some lessons.

54
Only Human
Midtown W
Slow, Great singing, Cliched

See it if Here's the thing, some great singing and songwriting went into this musical, but the narrative and premise are incredibly lacking.

Don't see it if You aren't a fan of Gary Busey?

85
Resonant, Masterful, Confusing, Absorbing

See it if these actors are pros. The performances in this play are simply masterful.

Don't see it if You get annoyed by shows that leave plot points like "who is a ghost and who is not a ghost" vague for a long time.

92
Riveting, Masterful, Great staging

See it if you want to watch a master songwriter perform with perfect stage design & lighting, flawless choreography and joyful & mobile musicians.

Don't see it if you are looking for a narrative play. Think of this like one long, visually stunning, clever and transcendent music video performed live.

71
Cliched, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if you would enjoy "Black Mirror" if it was a lot sillier or had a singing narrator.

Don't see it if you would enjoy "Black Mirror" LESS if it was a lot sillier or had a singing narrator.

76
Thought-provoking, Funny, Absorbing

See it if either you believe in hypnosis/psychic phenomena OR you are someone (like me) who enjoys trying to figure out how they do their tricks

Don't see it if you are expecting a vegas style, special-effects-y magic show. This is mostly just a charismatic man on a stage talking to the audience.

92
Must see, Masterful, Hilarious, Great writing

See it if You always thought Kevin was the hot one.

Don't see it if You hate brilliant, self deprecating, at times goofy, at other times dark storytelling by a comedy genius.

30
God of Marz
Midtown W
Banal, Excruciating, Insipid, Confusing, Disappointing

See it if You have a friend in the cast and have to support them.

Don't see it if You want to laugh or care about what you are seeing or want any degree of coherency. There was no laughter from the audience at all.

70
Sometimes boring, Long, Disappointing, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if you are a big bette davis fan. Her performance of bette is great and doesn't read like an impression.

Don't see it if it is just far too long. should be under an hour.

82
Absorbing, Sad, Great storytelling, Entertaining, Great acting

See it if you enjoy a character driven story with solid performances

Don't see it if you need a lot of action to stay interested.

82
Enchanting, Great music, Entertaining, Delightful, Cliched

See it if You are a fan of Carole King music and 60s music generally.

Don't see it if You would be turned off by the somewhat predictable musician-biography formula.

79
Dated, Great acting, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you like funny, upbeat musicals and are a Carl Reiner fan.

Don't see it if you don't like classic musicals.
