Delightful, Entertaining, Great staging, Romantic, Clever

See it if you like musicals generally and "classic" musicals in particular. This one has great staging, score, and performances.

Don't see it if you prefer something distinctly modern, or you are just feeling too cynical lately (unless you want to try and snap out of that).

Absorbing, Clever, Great staging, Intelligent, Original

See it if you have read the book - or even if you haven't! Great job of making autism accessible to the rest of us, at least for this moment.

Don't see it if You just wanted to see a classic Broadway musical.

Funny, Clever, Resonant, Intelligent, Great writing

See it if you think you might like a play about people who make some progress in their life's struggle to get past old hurts masked in comic defenses.

Don't see it if jokes and drama in a cancer ward setting is too much for you this week.

Funny, Masterful, Intelligent, Delightful, Clever

See it if you haven't seen it yet. Fun music, great energy, and a great irreverent send-up of Mormon beliefs.

Don't see it if you avoid anything about any religion, religiously.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Exquisite, Riveting, Must see, Masterful

See it if you can! If you need a history lesson. If you like music. If you thought there was no possibility of newness and greatness on Broadway.

Don't see it if you have already seen it twice - give others a chance!

Ambitious, Great acting, Great writing, Dated, Thought-provoking

See it if you have never seen a production of LDJIN - it's worth it to see a masterpiece. But it is long and relies on repetition, so be prepared.

Don't see it if You have seen before and don't want a near 4-hour experience.
