See it if You like a good drama done well. A good group of male actors who hold one's attention through out. WW2 era, but a lot about today.

Don't see it if You do not like to have to pay attention and listen to what is being said & understand the depth of the dialogue.

Einstein's Dreams
Midtown E
Overacted, Great staging, Ambitious, Clever

See it if you enjoy unusual topics put to music. Very interesting set design and use of a small stage. The cast does a good job with their many roles.

Don't see it if you are looking for a classic Broadway show with big numbers and dancers & staging.

See it if you enjoy strong dramatic plays.It keeps one engaged for the entire production. A play that creates many discussions when the curtain drops.

Don't see it if you when a play that is straight line and you know exactly who's who. This one is thought provoking.

Intense, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Absorbing

See it if you like long monologues delivered by one of 2 characters. The actors do a great job of delivering the thoughts of the principle character.

Don't see it if you will have little physical interaction bwt. the 2 characters. This is a cerebral play, all talk and little action.

Also This is not a show for everyone. I looked at it as a intellectual love... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Entertaining

See it if you like character development pieces. Good performances by both actors. Not 100% sold on their chemistry. There is a lot of dialogue.

Don't see it if brief nudity offends you. This a play with a lot of talk & little action.

Ambitious, Overrated, Great staging, Great singing

See it if you like musicals and a new treatment for classic Broadway tunes. Creative staging & lighting. Good performances by all.

Don't see it if you want an original interpretation of OK. The ending was very disturbing for me because of the current social atmosphere in our country.

King Kong (NYC)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Great staging, Clever, Entertaining

See it if You want to see a creative show with the staging of the ship, the island and especially the top of the Empire State building. Kong is great.

Don't see it if you only like the basic, routine way of doing a musical or play for that matter. The staging is very creative, not routine.

Also The development of Kong is fantastic. His movements, especially the fa... Read more Read less

The Hard Problem
Upper W Side
Quirky, Disappointing, Psycho babble

See it if you like philosophical discussions that have no clear cut answer. A group of young people who very efficiently change the scenery throughout

Don't see it if you like a quick phased show that goes somewhere. This one does not.

The Wolves
Upper W Side
Disappointing, Banal, Excruciating

See it if You are in your 20's. It think that is the only age group that can currently relate. The choreographed warm-up routines are quite good.

Don't see it if You are looking for some deeper understanding of current world & social issues. This is all surface, just talk.

Delightful, Great singing, Great staging, Must see, Riveting

See it if You enjoy a small group of actors playing numerous roles & switch in the blink of an eye. They do them all so well & are so believable.

Don't see it if You are expecting lots of laughs.

72
Quirky, Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy 2 seasoned actors play 3 roles each in an 80 min. show with some life evoking questions.

Don't see it if you do not like a show with just 2 actors and much dialogue.

Bella Bella
Midtown W
Relevant, Intelligent, Funny, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you like an intelligent, well presented portrait of a political person of the past. There is a lot of humor, pathos & great Harvey.

Don't see it if you don't like political subjects, or a man telling a women's story, not in drag. If you are not a Harvey Fierstein fan, forget it!!!!

The Rose Tattoo
Midtown W
Histrionic, Confusing, Disappointing, Absorbing, Intense

See it if you like Marisa Tommey & T. Williams plays. Interesting set design. Hard work by all involved.

Don't see it if you do not like a lot of loud, rushed speeches, running around the stage a lot with accents that are too thick to understand at times.

Two's a Crowd
Midtown E
Refreshing, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful, Clever

See it if you like a good laugh. Good mix of comedy & song about mature adults in a funny situation. Good job of acting by someone known for stand up

Great staging, Hilarious, Funny, Entertaining, Clever
