The Talmud
Technological, Fluid, Intelligent, Deep, Compelling

See it if You enjoy multi-cultural + technologically innovative + fluid + physical + weird (in a good way) theater.

Don't see it if You do not enjoy ambiguity in a narrative or an abstract plot (where the beginning, middle, and end are hard to differentiate).

Don't see it if You are a theater "purist" and are not comfortable with content that sits "outside the box."

Nostalgic, Intimate, Authentic, Garrish, Awkward

Also On a further note, I found the dance scene particularly disturbing in ... Read more Read less

Upper W Side
Great acting, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Intelligent, Serious

See it if you enjoy drama greed, corruption, and the personalities involved – each behaving in self justified ways.

Don't see it if you are looking for a show that uplifts you.

For a previous production
Funny, Hilarious, Raunchy, Colorful, Imaginative

See it if you enjoy slapstick humor, off-the wall comedy, and satire.

Don't see it if you don't like door slamming or silly humor.
