Thought-provoking, Must see, Great writing, Clever, Absorbing

See it if You want to see the must-see show of the season, you want to have important and necessary conversations about race

Don't see it if You want something commercial or easy to digest. There's a lot to process here. Be ready to do that work.

Great singing, Entertaining, Delightful, Clever, Ambitious

See it if You want a fun bar show about Oscar Wilde with some kick-ass music with some of the best singers in the city.

Don't see it if You want an immersive show. This isn't that immersive, which is fine but the marketing leads you to think that it will be very immersive

Don't see it if You want a very traditional theatrical experience

Public Servant
Midtown W
Relevant, Slow, Disappointing, Cliched, Banal

See it if You like a traditional theatre experience telling a familiar story with characters who are easy to like.

Don't see it if You want something new or exciting. This play is very cookie-cutter and, though I like much of Brunstetter's other work--I was disappointed

Tootsie (NYC)
Midtown W
Banal, Offensive, Overrated, Excruciating, Cliched

See it if You want to see tired and transphobic jokes that were in poor taste 20 years ago.

Don't see it if You are trans, know anyone who is trans, or care at all about the trans community. This is a dangerous play that should never have been done

Raunchy, Confusing, Clever

See it if You liked School of Rock and Book of Mormon

Don't see it if You are a purist about the film, want to see something that is super polished

The Ferryman (NYC)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Ambitious, Exquisite, Riveting, Great writing

See it if You want to see one of the best writers of this generation working at his peak.

Don't see it if You want to be spoon-fed morals or themes.

94
Ambitious, Great acting, Dizzying

See it if You want to enter into a dreamscape where your perception of reality starts to bend. Also Michael C Hall is an all-time great actor.

Don't see it if You want easily digestible theatre.

90
Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Enchanting, Great acting

See it if You love to laugh, want to see some of the best performances of the year, or some of the cleverest writing in New York.

Don't see it if You don't know Harry Potter.

Network (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Ambitious, Great staging, Great acting, Riveting

See it if You love Ivo Von Hove or Cranston. This is a great example of their work.

Don't see it if You get frustrated by poorly structured scripts and can't sit through more than 90min without an intermission.

88
King Kong (NYC)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Absorbing, Clever, Great staging, Riveting

See it if You love spectacle. What they achieve with the puppet is next level and they deserve all the praise in the world for it.

Don't see it if You want an intimate show that says something about the human condition. Kong isn't Sunday in the Park with George" but it doesn't try to be

90
Ambitious, Absorbing, Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining

See it if You love queer stories and farcical comedies (think the princess bride)

Don't see it if You want something serious and ponderous.

37
The Exes
Midtown W
Funny, Dated, Confusing, Cliched, Banal

See it if You want a very traditional Neil Simon-esque comedy.

Don't see it if You want something very fresh or ground-breaking.

70
Raunchy, Romantic, Quirky, Great acting, Cliched

See it if You want a fun, traditional 'date night' type show with good improvisers

Don't see it if You want something groundbreaking or want deep insights into how the dating apps impact us.

61
Fluffy, Entertaining, Banal, Cliched, Great acting

See it if You want to turn your brain off and see two great actors with fun chemistry

Don't see it if You want a politically relevant, well made, or intellectual show

A Strange Loop
Midtown W
Raunchy, Great writing, Dizzying, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if You like a black ass, queer ass, American Broadway.

Don't see it if You want an easy to digest piece of theatre. A Strange Loop will stay with you and leave you with more questions than answers.

94
Quirky, Intelligent, Enchanting, Delightful, Absorbing

See it if You love theatre that merges traditional forms with modern ideas and shows that are non-linear and experimental.

Don't see it if You want a cut-and-dry biography of the protagonist. The play isn't that and doesn't want to be. It delights in the weird moments.

Life Sucks.
Midtown W
Profound, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if You love great theatre and like shows that merge comedy and drama

Don't see it if You want something that is easy and that doesn't challenge you.

83
Quirky, Fluffy, Clever

See it if You like modern "pop" musicals

Don't see it if You want something more classic, deep, or meaningful

63
Great acting, Great singing, Disappointing, Indulgent, Insipid

See it if You want to see one of the straight-up strongest casts on Broadway sing a fun, poppy score.

Don't see it if You want to see a well-staged, well-thought out, interesting show

69
Entertaining, Cliched, Dated, Fluffy, Clever

See it if You want a good (not great) new musical comedy. It's a B- show and is worth the watch at the prices it's at.

Don't see it if You want something that is earth shattering.

95
Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Relevant, Resonant

See it if You love great plays and want to see one of the best ones of the season. This play blew my mind

Don't see it if You want escapist entertainment. This play is dark and disturbing and will reach inside of you and fuck you up

Desperate Measures
Midtown W
Banal, Cliched, Dated, Insipid, Raunchy

See it if You are able to turn your brain off when you watch a show and want old school musical numbers.

Don't see it if You are made uncomfortable by casual misogyny or rape jokes. Also, don't see it if you like good musical numbers.

Great acting, Indulgent, Quirky, Banal, Entertaining

See it if You want a "turn your brain off" show. This is pure escapism with some strong performances.

Don't see it if You want a show that will stick with you or has any sort of message or theme. There's not much here but it is fun (most of the time)
