Depression musical with depressing bob dylan songs
May 6th, 2022

See it if You have to see every musical on Broadway. This is more of a play with music. It is slow and it’s not Bob Dylan’s best music. Cast is superb

Don't see it if you hate Pretension passing for Theatre. If you hate highbrow things you’re supposed to like. You have no patience for slow slow musicals

Nice production but not magical
May 6th, 2022

See it if You absolutely have to see Hugh Jackman And the marvelous Sutton Foster. You have the bucks to shell out.Santa Loquasto sets are amazing

Don't see it if If you seen music man too many times and seen it done way better than this. ( last revival)This isn’t bad it’s just not great

Annoying unfunny girl
May 3rd, 2022

See it if You want to throw out good money to see an actress who is unfunny, can't really act, sings a little and is in way over her head.

Don't see it if You are expecting to see a Broadway calibre performer as Fanny Brice. The production is fine but at the lead Beannie Feldsteins sinks it.

Also I cannot believe they auditioned this girl for the role. Did someone n... Read more Read less

Decent community theatre rendering of pippin
August 27th, 2019

See it if you want to see a community theatre production stripped to the bare bones without circus or Fosse stylization.

The old religion versus homosexuality story.
August 27th, 2019

See it if You like plays that confront religion with homosexuality. To me it is a theme that is done to death and been done better.

Don't see it if You have to see all gay plays. Well intentioned but had a great sense of deja vu.

Sensory overload. entertaining somewhat but indulgent

See it if You are interested in a very well acted directed play about repressed sexual fetishes. Great lighting and sets.

Don't see it if You are looking for gratuitous nudity for nudity sakes...but it was very sensual on its own terms.

Great performances from all three leads in spite of a very sick slow first act. colorblind casting confounds the play

Enjoyable smart adaptation of the movie
May 2nd, 2019

See it if You want to laugh. The book and lyrics are clever - the new jokes add a lot to the already clever plot line. Great performances spare one.

Don't see it if You have no sense of humor. You don't like old fashioned musicals. You can't abide no romantic chemistry between leads Cooper and Fontana.

Also I had fun but this is far from a perfect musical. I have some quibbles... Read more Read less

Great actors-pointless play- set steals the show
April 29th, 2019

See it if You want to see great actors almost save a sinking play. You want to see a fascinating set which steals the show. The play is a big..."Why?"

Great play. not the best production unfortunately.
January 21st, 2019

See it if You've never seen True West before. Great play but unfortunately Hawke and Dano aren't quite up to snuff. The mom in Act Two steals the show

Don't see it if You've seen a great production before and don't want a pale comparison.

See it if You have kids and enjoy the thrill ride of having them. Singles and child less people will not enjoy this. You like Mr. Birbiglia's humor.

Don't see it if If you don't have a chlld, this show will be lost on you. Mike is a likable fellow but this is strictly for a crowd that has kids.

Better than the most recent broadway revivals!
September 17th, 2018
