Betrayal
Midtown W
Slow, Disappointing, Indulgent, Dated

See it if You're a huge fan of the Cox or Hiddleston and don't have strong feelings about the play.

Don't see it if You're not OK with a very self-indulgent, overly-emotional take on what should be a quick, dark, and devastating piece of work.

Also I was pretty astounded to see a whole cast of Brits seem constitutiona... Read more Read less

Profound, Intelligent, Great acting, Refreshing, Absorbing

See it if You want to see intimately staged, expertly performed, exceedingly naturalistic take on the Chekhov classic. Jay O Sanders is a marvel.

Don't see it if You like big, high stakes drama. This production certainly has its moments of that, but the emphasis here is on simplicity and truth.

Office Hour
East Village
Disappointing, Intense, Slow, Cliched, Banal

See it if You're very interested in seeing how a playwright could attack such a difficult subject, even if they don't shed much light.

Don't see it if You expect the playwright to have anything to add to the conversation. You have any kind of PTSD or anxiety.

Also The early sections where Dennis is not speaking are utterly interminab... Read more Read less

Pity in History
Chelsea
Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Intelligent, Thought-provoking

See it if You want to see a play with tremendous mordant wit, performed by a sold ensemble with a brilliantly effortless central performance.

Don't see it if You're looking for light entertainment.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Absorbing, Clever, Enchanting, Entertaining

See it if If you want to see a brilliant modern musical. Something that honors the form as it reinvents it. Stellar all around.

Don't see it if You don't like rap, and prefer conventional musicals.

Delightful, Entertaining, Resonant

See it if You want to see a charming musical about a community that opened its homes and hearts to people in a time of need.

Don't see it if You require your musicals to have memorable songs or dancing. You're not a fan of the "and then this happened" type of musical storytelling.

The Humans
Midtown W
Absorbing, Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging, Resonant

See it if You love brilliant acting, direction and compelling naturalistic 'slice of life' stories.

Don't see it if You need a truly epic drama or you need to see something light.

The True
Midtown W
Enchanting, Entertaining, Funny, Intelligent

See it if You want to see some great actors having a blast playing off each other in a fun amiable play. A hell of a role for Falco, and she delivers.

Don't see it if You're looking for something high stakes. This is a character piece, that gives a fun glimpse into a particular time and place.

Dogs of Rwanda
Chelsea
Absorbing, Entertaining, Intense

See it if You want to see a compelling, well acted and designed story about guilt and trauma.

Don't see it if You're not interested in one man shows. You can't handle descriptions of violence.

Also Hodge does a great job throughout. The drummer accompanist is wonderfu... Read more Read less

Uncommon Sense
East Village
Absorbing, Ambitious, Beautifully designed, Great acting

See it if You want to see a quite thoughtful, compassionate, and earnest exploration of what it's like to live on the autism spectrum.

Don't see it if You find the subject matter hard. There is a lot of humor and love here, but it frankly depicts the challenges these people & families face.

A Brimful of Asha
Midtown W
Funny, Refreshing, Resonant

See it if You want to see a charming story of a cultural clash between a son and his non actor mother.

Don't see it if You prefer bigger stories or big production values. It's decidedly modest in scope.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Dizzying, Edgy, Refreshing

See it if You're interested in a musical that plays with the form and includes immersive elements. A rollicking good time with romance and humor.

Don't see it if You're want conventional musical theater. This show is more about the experience than anything. Some of the storytelling is almost Brechtian

Absorbing, Clever, Delightful, Great acting, Raunchy

See it if You want a remarkably clear and funny take on one of the Bard's most challenging comedies. This may be the best Measure you'll ever see.

Don't see it if You want to see big production values in your Shakepseare, or want it to have an epic feel.

Also This is one of the best spoken and most consistently acted Shakespeare... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Entertaining, Intense

See it if You like to feel right in the action. You love Sondheim and want to see a fresh, fun take on one of his classics.

Don't see it if You're easily scared (and you don't like it)-- the actors get right in your face if you're on the floor seating, and often menacingly.

Small Mouth Sounds
Midtown W
Absorbing, Clever, Entertaining, Intelligent

See it if You're open to a mostly wordless piece exploring character and relationships.

Don't see it if You're bored easily by silence. You want more epic theater. This is an intimate experience.
