Disappointing, Overrated, Indulgent

See it if you love the show, like immersive theatre, and aren't afraid of actors getting in your face

Don't see it if you hate immersive theatre and prefer traditional staging

Also I was wildly disappointed by this production. Having heard praise from... Read more Read less

Sunset Boulevard
Midtown W

See it if you want to see Glenn, you're a Michael Xavier fan but haven't made it across the pond, and you want to hear a damn good orchestra

Don't see it if you don't like stripped down staging, you like smart book writing, or if you aren't an ALW fan.

Also Worth it to see Glenn's performance (she's aged into it nicely), Micha... Read more Read less

Relevant, Intense, Edgy

See it if you like edgy, in-your-face theatre, you are a fan of the novel, and if you aren't totally depressed about the state of the world

Don't see it if you are easily squeamish (there is a lot of violence), hate loud noises/flashing lights, or want to bring your children to the theatre

Also The entire ensemble is riveting...with the exception of Tom Sturridge.... Read more Read less

Great staging, Quirky, Intelligent, Entertaining

See it if you love tight-knit ensembles that steal the show, inspired staging, or if you are a fan of the original film.

Don't see it if you like simple lyrics

Also As a major Minchin fan, I was slightly disappointed that I immediately... Read more Read less

Exquisite, Great singing, Great acting, Great staging, Must see

See it if you love theatre that defies Broadway norms, strong ensembles, inventive staging, gorgeous design, and immersive experiences

Don't see it if you are a musical theatre traditionalist, you don't like War and Peace, or hate actors breaking the fourth wall

Also The Great Comet is easily the best thing I've ever seen on Broadway, a... Read more Read less

Hilarious, Great writing, Quirky, Delightful, Clever

See it if you love Hamilton, Broadway in general, parodies, theatre in-jokes, and witty lyrics.

Don't see it if you aren't a Hamilton fan, if you aren't caught up to date on the Broadway season, or if you are going to the theatre for the first time

Also Dan Rosales as Lin Manuel is utter perfection. The entire cast is extr... Read more Read less

Great singing, Slow, Entertaining

See it if you want to see two Broadway legends

Don't see it if you aren't a fan of either Christine or Patti

Also It was simply...ok? The ensemble is competent. The secondary leads are... Read more Read less

Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Profound

See it if you appreciate theatre that makes you think, you like immersive staging, and you are a fan of the playwright

Don't see it if you are unwilling to listen or like traditional plays that don't make you think

Also I liked it so much I had to see it twice, and was blessed with the opp... Read more Read less

Dated, Great singing, Great staging, Great acting, Epic

See it if you love big, epic musicals

Don't see it if you are tired of racist stereotypes, like well-written books, or are expecting a happy ending.

Also The talent level is high in this production. And the understudies may ... Read more Read less

Great singing, Resonant, Emotionally manipulative

See it if you want to experience masterful performances by the talented ensemble

Don't see it if you want an uplifting evening or if you are not a fan of the composers

Also There's no doubt that the performances are wonderful. And it's orchest... Read more Read less

Excruciating, Overrated, Disappointing

See it if you want to support the work of Lynn Nottage

Don't see it if you are looking for escapism, strong characters who you can root for, or if you don't want to be preached at

Also All of the actors were wearing new shoes. These are hard-working, low-... Read more Read less

Must see, Intense, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Great acting

See it if you enjoy retellings of classic tales, fearless females, unique perspectives, and thought-provoking theatre done extremely well.

Don't see it if you can't understand Welsh accents or if your masculinity is too fragile to handle a strong, messy woman's story.

Also Sophie Melville is a force to be reckoned with. I am not usually a fan... Read more Read less
