Relevant, Absorbing, Great acting, Great singing, Timely

See it if you like new musicals. I was surprised how moving it was. As intended, it helped me identify with the anger felt by oppressed people.

Don't see it if you expect your musicals to be all honey sweet.

Also The singing, musicians, choreography, etc. were all Broadway ready! Se... Read more Read less

Relevant, Intelligent, Great acting, Absorbing, Delightful

See it if you love great theater! I was surprised how interesting they made this story. The first act is really fun. The second act is so relevant.

Don't see it if you despise Rupert Murdoch. He's surprisingly less sinister than I expected; almost not bad.

Also You need no knowledge or The Sun or The Mirror to enjoy this show. The... Read more Read less

Dizzying, Funny, Entertaining, Enchanting, Delightful

See it if you have an interest in British culture. The play is zany and silly. The cast is charming and the lead does a fabulous American accent.

Don't see it if you have no interest in zany and silly plays..

God Said This

Ambitious, Great acting, Great staging, Intense, Relevant

See it if you're up for a tightly written script, great performances (Jay Patterson is stunning), and satisfying family drama.

Don't see it if hospital rooms or medical dramas make you ill.

Also A story about a family member's illness bringing a family together is ... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Enchanting, Entertaining, Great singing, Thought-provoking

See it if you like wonderful music and interesting stories. The actors are all enchanting.

Don't see it if you only like musicals or aren't interested in youth. This is a play with music, I wouldn't call it a musical.

Also Despite being a story about boys in high school, it includes adult top... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Raunchy, Thought-provoking

See it if you like great acting and an intelligent story about recovery; if you like drama with some comedic moments.

Don't see it if you don't like thinking about what you just saw.

Banal, Confusing, Disappointing, Slow, Ambitious

See it if you are a fan of Neil LaBute or like to support independent theater. You do get 3 plays for the price.

Don't see it if you want an exciting or meaningful experience. All three shows were banal and dragged on.

Don't see it if 9/11 is still too fresh in your mind

Absorbing, Enchanting, Entertaining, Great staging, Great writing

See it if you love classic musicals and because the music is great! The costumes are fabulous too!

Don't see it if your favorite scene includes the "Take Me to the Church On Time" number. It's usually my favorite, but their staging of it was out of place.

Entertaining, Delightful, Clever

See it if you like physical comedy. The lead actor is fabulous and reminded us of Dick van Dyke.

Don't see it if you're unappreciative of a little old-fashioned comedy.

Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Cliched, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if you need more time thinking about the possibility of President Hillary Clinton or like plays about marital relationships of ambitious people

Don't see it if you can't think about the Clintons anymore. I found the play profoundly sad! I don't think that was the intention.

Also Any time you have the opportunity to see Laurie Metcalf, take it!

Resonant, Indulgent, Great acting, Entertaining, Confusing

See it if you are a big fan of the playwright, Borges and Nantucket. John Larroquette and supporting cast do a great job with the material.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy a bit of confusion. To really appreciate the play, I think you need the context of what is true and what is artistic license

See it if you have a great sense of humor and nostalgia for MTV.

Don't see it if you are easily confused or absolutely hate Van Halen.

Also I didn't know what to expect from the title. I was never a big Van Hal... Read more Read less

See it if you love Stoppard, superior performances, and game theory.

Don't see it if you dislike pseudo-scientific discussions or philosophical questions.

See it if you love theater. This is the only show I've ever seen that lived up to the hype.

Don't see it if you hate great performances and clever writing.

See it if love Bette M., love musicals, have a sense of humor, want a good time...

Don't see it if you really can't get by the dated story.

Ambitious, Disappointing, Great singing, Indulgent, Cliched

See it if you want to see talented performers. Their voices sounded great.

Don't see it if you want to have fun. There's no humor. The staging is unappealing. The music is a weird mash-up that doesn't fit the script.
