This Flat Earth
Midtown W
Ambitious, Great writing, Profound, Resonant, Thought-provoking

See it if you like plays that tackle contemporary issues. This play deals with gun control and school shootings, and handles it very well

Entertaining, Funny, Quirky, Overrated, A good time

See it if you're a fan of the show or any of the actors. Everyone does a great job!

Don't see it if you're not a fan of this specific musical. It's still a good show, but a bit overrated

Bandstand
Midtown W
Great acting, Great singing, Powerful, Amazing choreography, Slow

See it if you want to see something in the realm of a classic, old-school musical. Great choreography and performances! Corey and Laura are perfect.

Don't see it if you want something that's super new and contemporary. This is definitely more for people who like the classics

War Paint
Midtown W
Disappointing, Great singing, Overrated, Great design, Bad writing/music

See it if you feel like you have to see Patti or Christine live

Don't see it if you actually want to be entertained....

Sunset Boulevard
Midtown W
Dated, Disappointing, Overrated, Self-indulgent, Great staging

See it if you're a fan of Glenn or the original show....

Don't see it if you want a musical that will actually entertain you. This show was so boring, self-indulgent (with Glenn) and predictable!

Significant Other
Midtown W
Great acting, Great writing, Resonant, Heartbreaking, Delightful

See it if you want to have a show that will make you laugh your ass off and rip your heart out! The best of both worlds--but honestly it's amazing!!

Don't see it if you want purely a comedy or drama; this is definitely a mix of the two

90
Enchanting, Great acting, Epic, Must see, Resonant

See it if you want to see a high-quality, beautifully done revival of the play. Or if you're a fan of any of the actors or Williams!

See it if you love immerse theatre, Macbeth, movement pieces, or experimental pieces. It's also a must-see for any theatre artist!

Don't see it if you want to sit down and just enjoy a show. This is something you have to actively participate in in order to experience it fully

Spamilton
Midtown W
Entertaining, Ambitious, Disappointing, Overrated, Great writing

See it if you're a fan of Hamilton and want to laugh.

Don't see it if you're expecting something with non-stop laughs. There are definitely some lulls in it. It was not what it's set up to be.

Beardo
Brooklyn
Ambitious, Enchanting, Great writing, Epic, Masterful

[PORTO]
Upper W Side
Absorbing, Clever, Great writing, Refreshing, Thought-provoking

See it if you like theatre that pushes boundaries and plays with the typical "rules" of a play.

Don't see it if you want a traditionally staged play. This show is anything but traditional (though it's not experimental or absurd at all()

61
In Transit
Midtown W
Delightful, Cliched, Disappointing, Unique, Fun

See it if are curious about how an a capella musical works. Or if you just want a casual, low-stakes musical. Though not worth a lot of money...

Don't see it if you want to see a well-done musical. If I get critical, it was pretty bad. Boring plot, stupid/cliche characters, etc.

88
Delightful, Enchanting, Exquisite, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if you're a fan of Kristin!

Don't see it if you don't like Kristin; simple as that!

Love, Love, Love
Midtown W
Clever, Dated, Great writing, Great acting, Thought-provoking

See it if you're a fan of Barltett! Or if you just enjoy really well-written and acted plays. It definitely made me feel/think a lot of things.

Don't see it if you want a (spoiler?) happy ending. This show is about love but the more problematic side of it. It's definitely a lot to process

73
Rancho Viejo
Midtown W
Great acting, Intelligent, Slow, Uneventful, Funny

See it if you don't mind something with "no plot." this show is much more about the characters and their lives.

Don't see it if You want a play with lots of action/conflict. It's a very uneventful play

A Life
Midtown W
Great acting, Thought-provoking, Intriguing, Unique, Great design

See it if you like theatre that isn't normal. It was a very "movie" like play and definitely went against theatrical norms.

Don't see it if You want to completely understand what you're seeing. The meaning of this show is somewhat unclear, though still interesting.

90
Entertaining, Delightful, Great writing, Hilarious, Laugh-out-loud funny

See it if you want to have a fun night out and laugh your ass off. Such a hilarious, delightful show

Don't see it if you want more of an actual "play". This isn't so much a play as a prolonged comedy sketch or even stand-up bit.

60
Enchanting, Romantic, Overrated, Beautiful design, Amazing choreography

See it if you're looking for a visually stunning show. The set design and the choreography are outstanding.

Don't see it if you actually want to see a real musical. This was much more of a ballet with the occasional dialogue....

70
Slow, Great singing, Great choreography, Dated, Visually stunning

See it if you're a fan of R&H, this show, or any of the lead actors. Or if you love dance! The ballet was magnificent

Don't see it if you don't like older musicals, want something more flashy/fluffy, or are looking to "have fun"

86
Great singing, Great acting, Profound, Slow, Resonant

See it if you are a fan of musicals that are more naturalistic, like Jewish and/or Egyptian history, or want to see a simply beautiful musical!

Don't see it if you want an upbeat, fun, big-dance-number type of musical. This is not a typical "Broadway" show

80
Delightful, Enchanting, Great acting, Great writing, Resonant

See it if you're a fan of Sarah Ruhl or Peter Pan! This play is so refreshing while being nostalgic and profound at the same time. Bring tissues!

Don't see it if You don't like theatre that breaks the 4th wall, Sarah Ruhl, stories about death

75
For a previous production
Entertaining, Great acting, Hilarious, Ambitious, Predictable

See it if you want a good laugh. This show is just traditional slapstick comedy, which is great if you like that! Actors are very dedicated.

Don't see it if you don't like slapstick or physical comedy. Or if you want a comedy that's not as apparently funny

The Terrifying
Lower E Side
Confusing, Edgy, Intense, Amazing set design, Absorbing

See it if you like to see shows that push typical theatrical boundaries. Or if you're particularly interested in the World Fairs.

78
Enchanting, Dated, Overrated, Romantic, Must see

See it if you're an ALW fan or a Phantom-virgin like I was. It's a show everyone should see because of it's notoriety

Othello: The Remix
Midtown W
Entertaining, Ambitious, Edgy, Great writing, Funny

See it if you love reinventions of Shakespeare. Or rap! The show is modern and interesting and unique while maintaining the original story.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy rap (or can't follow it). Or if you prefer Shakespeare performed in a traditional matter

76
Dead Poets Society
East Village
Disappointing, Great acting, Great staging, Profound, Resonant

See it if you are a fan of the movie. It's definitely a show you see for the nostalgia rather than the show itself. It's still very well done, though

Don't see it if you're looking for an "amazing" play. It was enjoyable, with great actors/staging, but it wasn't the best script.

94
