The Encounter
Midtown W
Unique, Enthralling, Masterful, Thought-provoking, Longwinded

See it if You want to experience a completely unique aural experience on Broadway. A fascinating story told in an incredible way.

Don't see it if A show that requires careful listening with minimal action on stage might be boring to you. I found the show to be about 25 mins too long.

Also I also saw the alternate to creator/writer/director Simon McBurney; it... Read more Read less

Trip of Love
Midtown W
Great dancing, Great music, Tuneful, Hollow, Overproduced

See it if You want to see a cruise-ship-like review of songs from the 1960's with very sexy, often scantily clad dancers doing some hot choreography.

Don't see it if You want more then a feeble thread of a story linking together some familiar music that is only related by the era from which they come.

Spectacular!, Spectacular!!, Spectacular!!!, Spectacular

See it if You want to be blown away by: scenery, choreography, costumes, puppetry, projections, orchestra, vocals. I cried twice! (Did not expect to.)

Don't see it if You want depth or substance from book. (Though DCB's book was funny and never dragged, so props to him!)

Enthralling, Quick-moving, Great singing, Nostalgic, Tuneful

See it if You are a fan of the extensive catalogue of Carole King's songs and want to spend an evening learning her story.

Don't see it if Jukebox musicals with narration that breaks the 4th wall might feel hokey or predictable.

Shuffle Along
Midtown W
Great acting, Resonant, Ambitious, Messy, Great singing

See it if You are a fan of the long list of Broadway stars in the production (McDonald, Stokes, Porter, etc.)

Don't see it if You would want to spend enough time with any one character to feel something for them, instead of just getting a sketch of many characters.

Paramour
Midtown W
Impressive, Epic, Fluffy, Pointless, Spectacular

See it if You appreciate the incredible super-human spectacle that Cirque du Soleil is known for.

Don't see it if You are looking for any depth or logic from the confusing, muddled afterthought of a book.

Bright Star
Midtown W
Touching, Beautiful, Emotional, Tuneful, Sweeping

See it if You like fluid, beautiful storytelling, that comes together in a surprising & touching way. Carmen Cusack's performance is not to be missed!

Don't see it if You don't like bluegrass or country music, or you might find a simple and emotional story too predictable.

85
Matilda
Midtown W
Charming, Heart warming, Touching, Clever, Quirky

See it if You are up for a talented ensemble cast led by impressive child actors and Broadway vets.

Don't see it if A distinctly dry British sensibility won't make you laugh.

During previews
Fully Committed
Midtown W
Solo show, Hilarious, Charming, Impressive, Clever

See it if You enjoy a fast-paced, virtuosic solo performance. Hilariously and cleverly directed by Jason Moore (Avenue Q, Pitch Perfect)

Don't see it if You might have trouble following a single actor playing 40+ characters or if a light comedy is not your preference.

98
The Humans
Midtown W
Riviting, Emmotional, Dark comedy, Family drama, Thrilling

See it if you like naturalistic, emotional and visceral family drama. Like watching a living dollhouse of little, complicated human beings.

Don't see it if a play with complex emotional themes is too much to handle.

90
Surprising, Moving, Great acting, Cerebral, Thought provoking

See it if you want to go inside the mind of a teenaged autistic boy. A moving and beautiful piece of theater.

Don't see it if you find fast-paced dialogue spoken in an English dialect difficult to follow.

85
Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Enchanting, Epic, Classic, Spectacle, Spellbinding

See it if you are ready to get lost in a fantasy world of overt and spectacular musical theater. Wicked is a modern Broadway staple.

Don't see it if you have trouble buying into broad, musical theater storytelling.

85
Exquisite, Masterful, Enchanting, Romantic, Ambitious

See it if You enjoy a classic R&H score staged with lavish sets, costumes and played by a large, full orchestra as only LCT can deliver.

Don't see it if traditional musical theater isn't your speed.

Noises Off
Midtown W
Delightful, Funny, Hilarious, Masterful, Excruciating

See it if You want to enjoy a well-staged and masterfully performed production of a slightly dated play.

Don't see it if Broad and slapstick humor don't suit your palate.

100
Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Great writing, Must see, Masterful, Moving, Brilliant

See it if You want to witness the musical that will forever chance the landscape of American musical theater.

Don't see it if You can't afford the very expensive tickets (but you should enter the lottery or try for standing room.) everyone should see this show!

76
Touching, Great dancing, Sappy, Predictable, Dazzling

See it if you want to take in another musical based on the origins of a familiar story. At times touching, and often quite funny.

Don't see it if you won't be charmed by a simple, if predictable story that comes frequently to a halt for a flashy and impressive production number.

100
Delightful, Enchanting, Slick, Gentle, Beautiful

See it if you would enjoy a mellow, sweet and gentle walk through familiar books brought to life by beautifully performed, larger-the-life puppets.

Don't see it if you or your "kids" are "too cool" for a "stupid baby show" that requires your attention for less then an hour. Please just be quiet!!

98
Hilarious, Original, Clever, Raunchy, Relevant

See it if You want a hilarious, and at times vulgar, send-up of religion in America. A near perfect use of the modern musical theatre genre.

Don't see it if The South Park brand of humor might be upsetting or offensive to you.

100
Something Rotten!
Midtown W
Hilarious, Brilliant, Original, Flashy, Rambunctious

See it if You are looking for a laugh-out-loud and high energy BROADWAY musical. A perfect escape from the frightening times we live in.

Don't see it if You want something with a bit more substance or depth, without show-stopping production numbers.

85
Eclipsed
Midtown W
Brave, Important, Moving, Surprising, Thought-provoking

See it if You want to witness profound and moving performances from an incredible ensemble of women; emotional and surprisingly full of humor.

Don't see it if Themes of violence, sexual assault or strong language might offend you.

91
Rambunctious, Slapstick, Country, Physical, Fun

See it if You want a compact, high-energy and campy time at the theater. Classic Alex Timbers staging and a brilliant comic turn from Leslie Kritzer .

Don't see it if You want something serious, subtle or if you don't find Steven Pasquale (and his voice) incredibly sexy.

70
American Psycho
Midtown W
Unique, Sexy, Ironic, Intense, Edgy

See it if You want to see this sexy, dark and twisted story told in a unique style of musical theater. Unlike anything else on Broadway!

Don't see it if Blood, violent language or sexual themes make you squirm. You're expecting memorable tunes from Sheik's Club/EDM inspired score.

75
Red Speedo
East Village
Probing, Dark comedy, Topical, Impressive, Visceral

See it if You like questions of morality in a measured and well acted play. Hnath's unique style and pacing of dialogue have a great dramatic effect.

Don't see it if You expect the on-stage pool to be used thoroughly throughout the show. (Front row may get wet!)

76
Blackbird
Midtown W
Gripping, Dramatic, Exhausting, Difficult, Visceral

See it if you enjoy weighty, intense drama. Well acted especially on the part of Jeff Daniels.

Don't see it if you dislike being confronted by uncomfortable subject matter or if you want to see Michelle Williams match Daniels' performance dramatically

95
Beautiful, Brilliant, Thought provoking, Intellectual, Heart-wrenching

See it if you don't mind confronting the emotional complexities of family and growing up gay.

Don't see it if you're looking for something more upbeat and not too deep.

80
Touching, Great singing, Powerful, Moving, Simple

See it if you want powerhouse vocals from a star-studded cast.

Don't see it if you would rather see a musical with flashy sets and costumes, or if you want to see Jennifer Hudson act.

95
Straight
Midtown W
Funny, Relevant, Refreshing, Intelligent, Great acting

See it if You are in the mood for a thought provoking, current look at the relationship between sexuality and identity.

Don't see it if Themes of sexuality, and hot 20-something's in their underwear are not for you.

100
Sleep No More
Chelsea
Ambitious, Exquisite, Epic, Original, Must see

See it if You enjoy an immersive, unparalleled, unique theatrical experience. Spontaneous and dense, this self-guided journey is different every time.

Don't see it if You are unable to walk/explore multiple floors of dark and often creepy sets independently. This is very much a solo experience.

100
Avenue Q (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Funny, Quirky, Thought-provoking, Must see

See it if you want a hilarious night at the grown-up version of Sesame Street.

Don't see it if You are sensitive to racy/raunchy humor, under 12.
