Sea Wall/A Life
East Village
Disappointing, Dated, Cliched

See it if you want to have a celebrity sighting

Don't see it if you don't care about the actors.

War
Upper W Side
Deeply layered, Brilliant, Shocking, Beautiful

See it if you like boundary pushing theatre that makes you feel uncomfortable, but sparks a discussion.

Don't see it if you don't want to experience the greatness of Branden Jacobs-Jenkins

Dark, Long

See it if you want a less intense Children of Men.

Don't see it if I don't know, it's hard to tell because it was only the second preview but there's some strange dramaturgical stuff I wasn't into.

The Wildness
Midtown W
Immersive, Blissful, Campy, Fourth wall breaking, Gorgeous

See it if you like fourth wall-obliterating immersive theatre that plays with plot camp beautifully.

Don't see it if experimental musical theatre isn't your thing. Or if you hated the structure of Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

Snow White
West Village
Hypnotic, Long, Gorgeous

See it if you want to be hypnotized by a visual feast

Don't see it if you want plot

Women Without Men
Midtown W
Typical

See it if you like old fashioned theatre

Don't see it if you want to see people who actually look invested in the performance

Fun moments, Good set, Terribly written, Obvious, Cliche

See it if you like Wayne Brady (he's great here) and are satisfied with just a few great songs in a wasteland of mediocre songs.

Don't see it if you value storytelling

Great staging, Great performances, Two-hander

See it if you're looking for an engaging two-hander.

Don't see it if you don't like having two people on stage the whole show (?)

Straight
Midtown W
Living room, Good acting, Short

See it if you like the classic living room drama setup.

Don't see it if you're looking for something more challenging.

Ripcord
Midtown W
Entertaining, Smart, Fun, Great acting

See it if you enjoy plays of any kind. It's imperfect and quite predictable, but joyously fun to watch.

Don't see it if you don't want to? I don't know, there's really no reason not to see this show.

Chicago (NYC)
Midtown W
Outdated, Amateurish

See it if you love Bob Fosse and you understand that the staging is minimalist (which is fine, but not executed very well here).

Don't see it if you want a big, flashy musical.

90
Insane, Epic, Exciting

See it if you want a heart-racing adventure involving white confetti and people screaming.

Don't see it if you don't want to stand for 90 minutes and potentially get wet.

97
Transcendent, Ambitious, Creative, Melodramatic, Gorgeous

See it if you're with your sexually confused teenage child.

Don't see it if that sexually confused teenage child doesn't want to talk about sex with their parents.

Catch The Butcher
West Village
Absorbing, Funny, Morally questionable

See it if you enjoy small performances spaces and a twisted plot.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy a slow plot.

85
Ambitious, Bizarre, Hilarious

See it if you're willing to open your mind and have it totally screwed with. This is a free form show that creates its own world and set of rules.

Don't see it if you've never enjoyed a David Lynch film.

Suicide Forest
Brooklyn
Edgy, Funny, Ambitious

See it if you like challenging and abstract theatre

Don't see it if you're allergic to that

Also This play is beyond stunning and I was fully captivated- truly some of... Read more Read less

Antlia Pneumatica
Midtown W
Quiet, Haunting, Meditative, Ethereal, Gorgeous

See it if you'd like a quiet, surreal, gorgeous, and deeply haunting meditation on friendship and death. This play will forever stick with me.

Don't see it if you're not interested in something sprawling, meandering, and nearly structureless. This isn't for the masses.

90
Beautiful, Raw, Funny, Unique

See it if you like adventurous theatre that transcends the concept of a musical. The Starr continues to amaze me but it's not for everyone.

Don't see it if you're with a small child. Actually, do take them, as the sex scene in this show is one of the best and most real I've ever seen.

Dry Powder
East Village
Minimalist, Hilarious, Sardonic, Morally skewed, Poignant

See it if you enjoy sharp writing and morally fucked characters. It's extremely engaging and the drama is fantastic.

Don't see it if you don't like business-related dialogue

Red Speedo
East Village
Gorgeous set, Simple, Smart, Funny

See it if you enjoy solid, well-performed theatre with a subversive script.

Don't see it if you're looking for something you can turn your brain off to.

Joyous, Challenging structure, Brilliant staging, Funny

See it if you're okay with a piece of theatre not necessarily being what is usually thought of as a "play."

Don't see it if you want something with traditional dialogue and drama.

90
Futurity
East Village
Smart, Incredible music, Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Beautifully staged

See it if you have an open mind towards experimental types of musical theatre with plots that require a lot of thought.

Don't see it if you were hoping to see something like Wicked. Soho Rep/Ars Nova is far, far from Kansas.

Sylvia
Midtown W
Cute, Family-oriented, Problematic

See it if you want a fun show to see with the family.

Don't see it if you want a smart and unpredictable show.

Fool For Love
Midtown W
Poorly structured, Boring, Mundane, Pointless

See it if you like Sam Rockwell and plots that only matter in the last fifteen minutes.

Don't see it if Sam Shepard is not your cup of tea.

77
Action packed, Hilarious, Touching, Dizzying

See it if you like exciting, fast-paced theatre that feels purposefully messy and homemade.

Don't see it if you want a regular play with a plot.

The Humans

Slow, Spooky, Generic, Good acting

See it if you enjoy a slow burn, or the classic Thanksgiving family dinner setup.

Don't see it if you're expecting something about ghosts.

Cliched, Generic, Fun
