Little Women
West Village
Must see, Intelligent, Great acting, Delightful, Absorbing

Superhero

Resonant, Refreshing, Great singing, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if you love a quality new musical even if there are a few tweaks that need to be made.

Don't see it if if you only want big musicals and spectacle, or if you hate musicals. This isn't a perfect work, but it's damn good.

Network (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Ambitious, Dizzying, Intense, Relevant

See it if you want to be wowed (and sometimes disappointed) with technology! It's incredible, but does the story and/or acting get lost? I'm not sure

Don't see it if If you hate plays that are treated like blockbuster musicals. There's a lot of video and a little intimacy. It still probably worth it.

This American Wife
East Village
Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Raunchy, Quirky

See it if you like experimental, multi-media, shows without much of a plot, but with a strong message. Incredibly high quality for a blackbox show.

Don't see it if you want a "straight"-forward play or don't want to see young people wrestle with their own issues on stage. It's a bit navel gaze-y.

75
Entertaining, Romantic, Cliched, Generally ok, Derivative

See it if you like the original play or the movie... or you like a NYC-style story of 1960's love and drama. Feels a bit "done" already though.

Don't see it if if you want something new, experimental, or "Wow". It's a good, solid show.

First Love
West Village
Disappointing, Cliched, Indulgent, Insipid, Slow

See it if you like Charles Mee's work. It's an acquired taste.

Don't see it if you want a straightforward naturalistic story.

The Gentleman Caller
West Village
Entertaining, Slow, Thought-provoking, Clever, Funny

See it if You are interested in the fantasy of two great, and damaged, writers struggle to come to terms with who they are and there art.

Don't see it if You don’t like a (very) tally and somewhat uneven show that never really takes off.

For a previous production
Confusing, Banal, Dated, Excruciating, Indulgent

See it if If you like... I honestly don't know. Some of the acting is really great, but not for me.

Don't see it if You like a plot that makes sense and characters that you can even remotely relate to.

Cliched, Disappointing, Great singing, Slow, Ambitious

See it if you like new musicals. The singing is good. The songs, not so much.

Don't see it if you hate seeing everything sung or you hate overwrought dramatic stories. It's a little nothing of a story until it's simply too much.

Absorbing, Dated, Epic, Great acting, Exquisite

See it if You loved the original. You want to see a masterclass in acting. You hope to catch it before it will go to Broadway.

Don't see it if You are hoping for something relevant to 2017. This is a brilliant classic but feels dated in a way that is charmingly pre-AIDS crisis

Banal, Confusing, Disappointing, Insipid, Slow

See it if You like hot musclebound guys showing off. (but that's the only thing that will keep your attention...)

Don't see it if you are interested in a plot. Go to a Chippendale show instead.

Charm
West Village
Absorbing, Funny, Great acting, Relevant, Resonant

See it if You like strong writing and strong actinyoug, and you want a play that is of the moment.

Don't see it if You don’t like plays with “current themes” or want a play that is non-liner. This is a straightforward work that’s good and entertaining.

Cliched, Great acting, Great staging, Relevant, Resonant

See it if You are interested in a play that is relevant and tough, with great acting and staging, that is insightful about the ones we leave behind.

Don't see it if If you are looking for light entertainment or a complete plot. While very sad, I’m not sure the lead was especially sympathetic.

Tootsie (NYC)
Midtown W
Delightful, Refreshing, Relevant, Hilarious, Clever

See it if You loved the movie, have never seen the movie, hated the movie. It’s all new, but a little the same. Funny, fun, joyful, and plain fun!

Don't see it if You are hung up on the man playing a woman in today’s world. They tackle it, they laugh at it, but it’s still a man committing fraud...
