Waitress (NYC)
Midtown W
Fluffy, Overrated, Entertaining, Great staging

See it if you like a fun show with good music. Very straight-forward with stereotypical characters though the actors that played them were very good.

Don't see it if you're worried it might be too cheesy or straight-forward. It's both.

The Children
Midtown W
Absorbing, Great acting, Intense, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if you want a solidly written drama that makes you think about the implications of wanting more out of life. The acting is also top notch.

Significant Other
Midtown W
Enchanting, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Indulgent

See it if you want to see a light but very good play. It has musical elements without being a musical. Really refreshing and a nice change.

Don't see it if you only like very serious plays. This play is deceptive because it feels fluffy but the acting and the feelings have a lot of truth.

Also The cast is amazing!

Banal, Cliched, Disappointing, Excruciating

See it if you enjoy cliched Shakespeare references and cliched music and dance numbers. Unoriginal and proud of itself.

Don't see it if no one should see this. Walked out at intermission but heard there were dancing omelets. What a piece of dreck. So boring and a waste.

Absorbing, Enchanting, Funny, Intelligent, Must see

See it if everyone should see a one-man show from John Leguizamo. This one is both entertaining and educational (and I mean that in a good way).

See it if you're interested in the idea of music or the arts as a tool to treat mental health issues.

Don't see it if you're a little tired of self-reflexivity in theater. I just feel like I've seen Rylance in better plays. The role is a little "too for him"

Great acting, Relevant, Profound, Slow, Intelligent

See it if you want to see an absorbing play about the disease of racism.
