The Hairy Ape
Upper E Side
Absorbing, Masterful, Riveting

See it if You are a fan of O'neill's expressionist plays. Staging is incredible and Cannavale is stellar. This is a dark descent into the lead's mind.

Don't see it if You want something light or uplifting. This is not for you.

but I cd only whisper
Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging, Resonant

See it if you enjoy intimate, moving theater that deals with difficult subject-matter. Toussaint Jean Louis gives an incredible performance.

Don't see it if you are uncomfortable with violence or are seeking something light and fluffy.

Absorbing, Clever, Entertaining, Refreshing

See it if you love science, singing, history and alcohol. Funny, light, insightful and very engaging. This is world history told through booze.

Don't see it if you abstain from drinking or audience engagement.

Absorbing, Indulgent, Slow, Great staging

The Changeling
West Village
Great staging, Intense, Confusing

See it if you're a fan of Jacobian theater. It had a great set, solid costumes, and fine acting.

Don't see it if you expect to find an empathetic character. There aren't many characters with redeemable qualities here.

The Encounter
Midtown W
Absorbing, Ambitious, Entertaining

See it if You want to be fully immersed in a unique, intimate audio landscape. The narrative isn't reliant on the technology, but fortified by it.

Don't see it if You have trouble sitting through a long show without intermission or have an aversion to sound and light effects.

Indulgent, Fluffy, Quirky

See it if you are a Wayne Brady fan. His stage presence and sheer talent lift the show. Otherwise it's a wet blanket. A sequin-covered wet blanket.

Don't see it if you want an resonant story or catchy tunes. The music is instantly forgettable and the narrative is hackneyed.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Delightful

See it if you love fine acting and a moving score.

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

I And You
Midtown E
Indulgent, Slow, Great staging

See it if you don't mind teen-speak and inconsequential bickering.

Don't see it if you expect it to reach the gravitas of "Leaves of Grass."

For a previous production
The Pillowman
Absorbing, Funny, Great writing, Masterful, Thought-provoking

See it if you enjoy haunting, thought provoking and challenging plays that might make you slightly uncomfortable.

Don't see it if you are squeamish or easily disturbed.
