Dated, Confusing, Disappointing

See it if You like Stephen Sondheim productions especially older material Clever idea of flow of show starting at end and going backwards to thestart

Don't see it if you are looking for a modern production with show stopping numbers and dances. I thought it was a bit dull.

Clever, Disappointing, Overrated, Entertaining

See it if you want an original musical in the sci fi genre that's not too serious

Don't see it if you want to see a musical with a great score, or great dancing which is almost non existent in this show. Seems to appeal to a young crowd.

Refreshing, Resonant, Relevant, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you want to see a moving tribute to the people of Gander, Canada who extended themselves in a time of need during the fearful times of 911.

Don't see it if It is too difficult to relive moments of 911. However, this is a loving story of true events of people coming together in a time of need.

Prince of Broadway
Midtown W
Great singing, Disappointing, Slow

See it if I had great expectations but found this show dull. A full cast was needed to allow for full production numbers

Don't see it if You are expecting a large jerome Robbins type show. They "cheaped out" and most numbers were a snooze fest

Dizzying, Confusing, Great staging, Entertaining

See it if Unique staging with some audience members sitting on the stage. Very lively with some audience participation. Josh Grobin performed

Don't see it if you like a longer show as this was one act w/o an intermission

75
Entertaining, Funny, Dated

See it if you like magic/illusion type shows. It is family friendly and uses audience participation.

Don't see it if you want new or inventive tricks as most of these have been seen before. Even though it's on bwdy, it does not have the feel of a Bwdy show.

Great staging, Entertaining, Confusing

See it if You have a good command of the Spanish language and want a lively well staged musical. It's a small theater so all seats are great

Don't see it if You mind reading subtitles and if you mind missing out on some jokes told in Spanish.

Don't see it if You want a full blown production with big settings. This is a short off Broadway production

Aladdin (Broadway)
Midtown W
Entertaining, Great staging, Refreshing, Great singing

See it if You enjoy a great Disney production with no expense spared. Staging was well done and the magic carpet ride was exquisitely done
