Field, Awakening
East Village
Ambitious, Cliched, Confusing, Disappointing, Slow

See it if you want to support emerging artists, and/or want to see a play about a place/situation we don't really talk about or experience here.

Don't see it if you are interested in the show as a political drama, you want to see a play dissect the attempted coup as it doesn't function as either.

Also As someone who moved here from Turkey I was immediately interested in ... Read more Read less

See it if stories of immigrants, particularly Eastern European, interests you.

Don't see it if you do not want to be on the edge of your seat for 2 hours and 45 minutes, and go through emotional turmoils with the characters.

See it if you are looking for a simplistic yet ambitious Sweeney Todd, and really feel like you're in Mrs. Lovett's pie shop.

Delightful, Exquisite, Great acting, Great singing, Masterful

See it if you're looking for a show that'll make you feel all the emotions. It's happy, it's exciting, it's heart breaking. Most importantly inspiring

Don't see it if An intersectional questioning of treatment of women isn't your cup of tea. A story about women, and their empowerment isn't what you want.

1984 (Broadway)
Midtown W
Shocking, Clever, Exquisite, Relevant

Drunkle Vanya
Midtown W
Clever, Funny, Quirky, Ambitious, Must see

See it if You're looking for a fun night with booze and a play. A loose adaptation and a "cards against humanity" type of humor does it for you.
