Network (NYC)
Midtown W
Great acting, Thought-provoking, Ambitious, Relevant, Great staging

See it if you want a Master Class in acting by Bryan Cranston...and you like immersive theatrical experiences. So absorbing!

Don't see it if you liked the William Holden/Faye Dunaway characters in the movie. This is Cranston's show, and the other characters seem to recede a bit.

Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Refreshing, Resonant

See it if you long for original musicals that poke fun at themselves and at the same time can cause you to stand and cheer at the end while tearing up

Don't see it if you don't like flashy, bright, colorful, deceptively simple plots with lots of high energy choreography.

Absorbing, Riveting, Intelligent, Great writing, Great acting

See it if you're willing to tackle a show which raises multiple issues incisively, but with humor and touches of humanity.

Don't see it if you want to be entertained rather than intellectually challenged.

See it if you want to see one of the most extraordinary Diva performances ever. Glenn Close + that 40 piece orchestra are the best reasons to see it.

Don't see it if You don't particularly like highly theatrical presentations. There's not much subtlety here.

Absorbing, Masterful, Intelligent, Relevant, Riveting

See it if you want an absorbing evening of theatre from start to finish. Grabs you from the start and never lets go. Superb acting and writing.

Don't see it if you want an exact replica either of the book or of the Gregory Peck movie.

Torch Song (NYC)
Midtown W
Great acting, Resonant, Riveting, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if like me, you were "around" that era, but wasn't out and participating in the gay experience.

Don't see it if You like theater that is plot or narrative heavy.

Riveting, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Great singing, Great acting

See it if you want to see one of the best performances by a male actor this year. The rest of the cast is equally superb.

Don't see it if you're into familiarity. This is a complete original.

Oslo (Broadway)
Upper W Side
Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if You want to be drawn into a compelling, intelligent, suspenseful rollercoaster rendering of clandestine international diplomacy.

Don't see it if You're not looking for a challenging, thoughtful, today's-issues-relevant experience.

Riveting, Resonant, Must see, Masterful, Intelligent

See it if you like shows that deal with the themes of art and life...specifically, the love of art vs. the art of love.

Don't see it if You like fast paced musicals with big production number.

Delightful, Entertaining, Great acting, Funny, Absorbing

See it if You like scores with a definite "pop" bend to them. Also, if you like shows with interesting and beautifully performed secondary characters

Don't see it if You like "serious" drama only.
