Upper E Side
Absorbing, Great acting, Intense, Thought-provoking, Riveting

See it if You are a Doctor Who fan!! It's really cool to see Billie Piper act on stage. Also, if you enjoy creative use of an unconventional theatre

Don't see it if You hate british accents, you prefer large casts, you want a happy ending, you are prone to seizures (some strobe lighting is used)

Confusing, Great music, Allegorical, Ambitious, Clever

See it if You love Sci-Fi, long monologues, live music (piano, percussion, trumpet, and guitar), and plays adapted from books.

Don't see it if You are uncomfortable with cavalier descriptions of murder and suicide. You prefer cohesive storylines.

Divine Horsemen
Intense, Thought-provoking, Violent, Dark, Absorbing

See it if You like heist/crime stories. You're into comic books. You are not easily distressed by stage violence or descriptions of animal abuse.

Don't see it if You want female characters to be more than off-hand remarks about nagging wives and hysterical mothers.

Absorbing, Delightful, Entertaining, Great acting, Resonant

See it if You know and love the music of Carole King and are eager to know the stories behind the songs. You're looking to be inspired.

Don't see it if You don't like Jukebox musicals. You want something filled with action, suspense, and adventure. This story is very simple and real.

Avenue Q (NYC)
Midtown W
Funny, Great acting, Hilarious, Quirky, Raunchy

See it if You like puppets, are confused about your life, or miss the good old days when Sesame Street could explain everything to you.

Don't see it if You are uncomfortable with tongue in cheek, satirical, raunchy humor involving sex, porn, racism, homelessness, homosexuality, and more.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Entertaining, Great staging, Great writing, Masterful

See it if You are literally any human with the ability to see this show

Don't see it if You're going to compare the current cast to the cast album. They're very different and in some places not as good.

Cliched, Disappointing, Epic, Great staging, Overrated

See it if You are looking for something that is definitely not controversial in any way. Good for kids. Gorgeous visuals, especially from the back.

Don't see it if You're looking for something fresh, something to keep you on the edge of your seat, wondering what's coming next.

Absorbing, Clever, Delightful, Exquisite, Great acting

See it if You like a very ensemble driven show where actors play multiple parts. You want to cry both tears of sadness and joy.

Don't see it if You expect big production value with special effects and technically difficult choreography. You only want to watch skinny beautiful people.

Clever, Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Exquisite

See it if You love powerful soloists. You love cheesy, love-at-first-sight romance. You are ready for a cultural experience a world away from NYC.

Don't see it if You are annoyed by romanticized portrayals of 'alternative medicine'. Gods offend you. You hate complex musical soundscapes.

Jersey Boys (NYC)
Midtown W
Delightful, Entertaining, Great singing, Slow, Fluffy

See it if You love boy bands, the story is less important to you than the music, and you love men singing ridiculously high.

Don't see it if You want strong female characters, thought-provoking theater, or you hate New Jersey.

Then She Fell
Absorbing, Delightful, Great acting, Great singing, Great staging

See it if You enjoy immersive theatre where you are likely to be separated from whoever you came to the show with. Small audience size.

Don't see it if You don't want to be a little scared. You don't already know the basics of Alice in Wonderland. You hate dance, esp. in unorthodox settings.

During previews
Counting Sheep
Absorbing, Ambitious, Confusing, Great singing, Relevant

See it if You love Ukrainian food, want to get informed on world events, are prepared to dance and clap and sing along with the performers.

Don't see it if You want a show entirely in English or want to know exactly what's going on at all times.

Clever, Dizzying, Epic, Riveting, Masterful

See it if You love Russian culture and interactive theatre, and have ever wanted to know a bit about War and Peace.

Don't see it if You don't like strobe lights, you think period pieces should strictly adhere to their time period, or you want a small cast.

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Delightful, Entertaining, Exquisite, Great singing, Epic

See it if You enjoy Broadway divas, killer choreography, and a story about bringing down a fraudulent authority figure, based on a children's story.

Don't see it if You are looking for something intimate. The theatre is huge.
