See it if you'd enjoy an intense but beautifully performed Spanish play about love, loss, mourning, & acceptance.
Don't see it if discussion/descriptions of the violent terrorist attack at the Orlando Pulse nightclub is triggering.
See it if This? This changed my mind about Sondheim. I digged this.
Don't see it if No reason. I tried entering the lottery many times after striking it lucky once. Go if and when it moves to broadway.
See it if for funny, tender, funny again story telling.
Don't see it if hoping for a more traditional stand-up routine.
See it if you'd enjoy a post apocalyptic puppet play with a love story and broody The Dark Crystal-esque vibes.
Don't see it if It's not alway coherent, and I didn't walk thinking it had a compelling raison d'être, but it was still neat & entertaining.
See it if you'd like great acting & bewildering characters in an overall great comedy-drama.
Don't see it if looking for light-hearted laughs. While this play has them, it comes with large doses of serious content.
See it if you'd enjoy a refreshing play that's both self aware yet not 'full of it.' Chaotic, mayhem-even, but ultimately you leave v. impressed.
Don't see it if small cast, intimate, & interactive theater is not your jam; or if you need your consumption of art/acting to be imbued with seriousness.
See it if you want to see a musical that has that old-timey broadway razzle-dazzle. 2nd half was more interesting than 1st.
Don't see it if you want edgy/innovation. Still a 30's vibe & humor at heart, even with welcomed (tho mostly unexplored) changes to Daphne & cast.
See it if you'd like a quick, two person play dissecting a failed relationship and decades delayed post-mortem of it.
Don't see it if you need a big production. This is intimate theater. Some dialogue felt forced/unnatural (but, it turns out, was intentional), FYI.
See it if you'd enjoy something so funny, it figuratively hurts. Gut punches and side-splitting laughs in a well-done subversive play/comedy.
Don't see it if you need a linear play/plot; this one delivers its critique via unrelated (but related) vignettes or if you can't handle critique of USA.
See it if you'd enjoy a sophisticated-feeling burlesque show, loosely adapted from The Nutcracker. Opulent. Fun.
Don't see it if you're a ballet purist or are prudish. The ballet elements were great, but the aerialist elements were the highlight.
See it if you'd like a fun, light-hearted jukebox musical.
Don't see it if you're unfamiliar/not a fan of the mostly early aughties and tens pop songs. Half the fun is enjoying how a particular pop song is used.
See it if interested in a short, well-acted monologue/play on the destructive nature of racism.
Don't see it if expecting a surprise-of-a-who dunnit; a large production; or elaborate set.
See it if a W.Philly Puertoriqueña’s journey finding the words that match her world piques your interest w/ lyrical/poetic narration, music, movement.
Don't see it if desiring a ‘traditional’ play. It’s heavy on monologue. At-times over the top w/ literary references.
See it if you want to pre-game & ride a buzz (like a sizeable # had this night) to take in some good-enough renditions of ND songs.
Don't see it if expecting a moving story to draw you in & create feels(good bad otherwise). Felt like rubbernecking a spectacle. No connection. Songs OK.
See it if you'd enjoy a delightfully substantial, honest, yet simple (in execution) father-son story, w/ immigrant/first gen & acceptance themes.
Don't see it if don't like plays that take a a minimalist approach to staging/production. My 2c, it put the focus squarely where it needed to be!
See it if interested in an exploration of the heart-break, struggle, and pangs of guilt of having an incarcerated loved one. Well acted. Honest.
Don't see it if you're all too familiar with the matter. For the unfamiliar, it's a good window into complex feelings and struggles of those on the outside.
See it if you'd like a wonderfully funny yet moving story of vulnerability and self-discovery through queer protagonists.
Don't see it if you need a big production: this is intimate theater at its finest. Or if you feel on the outs with Spanglish, mostly (not always) translated
See it if you'd enjoy a thoughtful play on toxic partisanship and its impact on the evolution (demise?) of the art of reporting.
Don't see it if you need a big production; it's intimate. (FYI: near Queens/Queensboro Plaza NOT near Kaufman Studios, a common misdirect by GoogleCal &iOS)
See it if you'd enjoy a surreal, mostly hallacinatory play/musical exploring grief and familial & cultural duty/burdens/reconciliation
Don't see it if 80 of 90 min. of frantic, bordering on the petulant, dream/psychedelic trip-as-mean-of processing family resentments/duties is too chaotic.
See it if interested in a well-acted play/series of vignettes on the mental/physical negotiations between care-givers and care-receivers.
Don't see it if you want something light & breezy; cast tackles weighty subjects on living with disabilities, isolation and, literally, the cost of living
See it if you'd like a quirky YOLO dark comedy-musical brought to you by way of Kimberly's exceedingly rare genetic condition + her toxic family
Don't see it if you don't like dark comedies--the adult figures it satirizes are indeed over the top and (mostly) unbelievable.
See it if you'd enjoy a play about human frailty, presented in an untraditional yet intriguing style with fantastical elements.
Don't see it if you need your theatre 'traditional' or mostly digested for you or dislike being made to work or suspend disbelief to get at its message.
See it if you're a fan of, or curious about, K-Pop; the show captures the aesthetic well. As with pop generically, it's saccharine and mostly fun.
Don't see it if you're looking to be moved by a strong plot or connection via strong character development.
See it if you'd enjoy a large ensemble, cross-gen play about a Jewish family in Austria during the slow, steady march to facism and its atrocities.
Don't see it if seeing Nazi and anti-semitic imagery is too painful; if keeping track of a large ever-aging ensemble is hard.
See it if you like close-up magic in an intimate setting, with a few mind-reading tricks to boot.
Don't see it if you're looking for something ground breaking. It's a solid show and Asi is a masterful, but it didn't feel like a new perspective/take.
See it if you'd enjoy two strong actors performing in a play commenting on race, sibling rivalry, and social class.
Don't see it if you're impatient--the drive is slow and ultimately predictable--and the drama comes to a head only in the last 10 minutes.
See it if you're game for a dark comedy with a very loose nod to Macbeth, touching upon fraught issues of race in college admissions, among others.
Don't see it if you don't like dark humor, farcical teenage characters, or zero sum treatment of marginalization-as-competition
See it if you'd enjoy a wonderfully acted play of a family in distress, coping and coming to terms with the suicide of a loved one.
Don't see it if the subject matter is too heavy or its intensity felt too great/too close in this really small theater.
See it if you'd enjoy a solid reinterpretation of a classic.
Don't see it if you prefer your Willy Loman's delusional rather than living w/signs of dementia. With all we know now, it's hard not to see this possibility
See it if want to see a live reenactment of an important 1965 debate, demonstrating that the more things change the more they stay the same.
Don't see it if a word-for-word reenactment of this historical event (save for the last ~5 minutes) wouldn't give you bang for your buck.
See it if in the mood for a fun, splashy musical with a great heart and even greater dancing in kinky boots.
Don't see it if a good heart & spirit of a show is minimized when, again, it falls on the historically marginalized to 'teach'/'accomodate' the hegemon
See it if you'd enjoy a clever retelling of our country's founding moments, poignantly and diversely recast.
Don't see it if any depiction of our country's founders as anything less than demi-gods upsets your sensibilities or if 2h45min is too long.
See it if you like leaving theater delightfully taken-aback; asking what did I just experience; concluding it was good, but not fully appreciating why
Don't see it if a non-linear, oft-campy/fantastical, "EverythingEverywhereAllAtOnce"-eque immigrant story, touching on gender & sexuality & more is not 4 U.
See it if you want an interestingly premised character exploration on how we emotionally deal (or not deal) with sickness; here, skin cancers.
Don't see it if you want lots of action--the play unfolds in a waiting room, while most of the cast is seated--or if the subject matter is triggering.
See it if you want to see a story of (very naive) young love, during a very dark period in history.
Don't see it if naïveté annoys you or if you can't make believe the actors are 16, which makes the naïveté unbearable.It's fine; good even; but felt aimless
See it if you're curious about the 1941 Disney animator's strike, capably showcased in this 3 person play on the inequities at the House of Mouse.
Don't see it if you want or expect a big production; need a neatly, fully fleshed conclusion to the dramatization of this historical event.
See it if you'd enjoy a story that well captures the emotion, essence and tensions of a budding relationship with elements of immigrant otherness.
Don't see it if you're expecting perfect acting/dialogue--it's a little uneven in this regard--but it was easy to see past that and into the play's heart.
See it if a fluffy, family-friendly heart-tugging story told through a set-less one-man show suits your fancy.
Don't see it if you want a little more production value for the price of admission or if oversentimentality irks you.
See it if you like strong voices, weaving interconnected encounters, in an intimate musical.
Don't see it if you’re expecting a razzle-dazzle musical; or catchy tunes; or big production.
See it if you want to see a remarkable burlesque show with amazing aerialists. Cirque du Soleil but scantily clad. I walked away impressed.
Don't see it if scantily clad bodies have you clutching your pearls. It IS tasteful burlesque, after all. There's a theme, if not a traditional 'plot'.
See it if a clever musical at the the intersection of race, sexuality, familial drama is something you'd appreciate.
Don't see it if such subjects offend your sensibilities; though all the more reason to see it. Some lyrics were hard to hear, literally & figuratively.
See it if you like improv, Colin Mocherie and his quick wit, in a show that (uniquely, I think) incorporates hypnotized audience members.
Don't see it if you think hypnosis is bogus or are inclined to believe selected audience members are "plants." Don't see if you're expecting a scripted show
See it if you're a Billy Crystal fan or fan of well-timed zingers. Can it be crass and out of place? Yes. At some level we can all enjoy potty humor.
Don't see it if you want great music. I really can't remember any of it. At its heart, this is a half comedy show/half sitcom. Billy Crystal hamming it up.
See it if you'd enjoy a cute family-friendly, light-hearted musical with broadway-adjacent production value.
Don't see it if you wish to see some poignant perspective on youth angst/drama. It doesn't want to be nor is it trying to be THAT deep. A little escapism.
See it if you want to see a reframing/re-envisioning of a greek tragedy but that feels modern nonetheless. Fantastic acting by Hille.
Don't see it if slow, measured pacing isn't your thing. At 3.5 hours, it's long. For sure I thought I'd nod off, but it was surprisingly engrossing.
See it if you enjoy a drama about untruthfulness, in various iterations in family and personal dynamics.It made me want to read the original play.
Don't see it if your hearing's not so great. Venue's acoustics; pulse of ceiling fans; din of the A/C, translated to missing lots of dialogue.
See it if you like campy, catchy irreverent musicals.
Don't see it if you're expecting a thought provoking musical. This one is just a fun, silly time with singable songs.
