The Encounter
Midtown W
Disappointing

See it if you like aural effects, mind-expanding travelogue, unique staging

Don't see it if you have little patience for trance-like states without intoxication, traditional theatrical performances

During previews
Small Mouth Sounds
Midtown W
Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Resonant

See it if you want to be surprised, being absorbed and moved virtually w/o dialogue, caught on retreat with characters you might normally avoid

Don't see it if you need dialogue, hate the idea of retreats or peace-seekers

The Golden Bride
Financial
Entertaining, Ambitious, Great singing

See it if you are curious about a Yiddish Theater operetta classic given vibrant, joyous life, subtitles projected to make the Yiddish understood

Don't see it if you don't want the operatic experience of reading subtitles, have no patience for very old-fashioned melodrama or immigrant experience

Cagney
Midtown W
Entertaining

See it if RKO-style Cagney bio, energetic tap numbers, interesting treatment of Red-baiting, but despite hard-working star you'd rather watch movies

Great staging, Entertaining, Masterful, Great singing

See it if you loved GREAT COMET; crave bravura singing of a smart and often beautiful and emotional score, creatively staged in an intimate space

Turn Me Loose
