If you like this person's taste, follow her!
See it if You want to see a great new revised version of an overlooked musical with a fantastic lead turn by Beth Malone
Don't see it if You’re a old-school purist. The book and several songs have been rewritten
See it if you/your kids are fans or just want to see a charming new show with great use of puppetry and staging to make a seven person cast look huge
Don't see it if you're expecting big-budget Broadway spectacle. It's a scrappy show that makes up for its physical limitations with heart and theatricality
See it if You want to see two phenomenal actors with fantastic chemistry in an play by turns funny, romantic, harrowing, and emotional
Don't see it if You want production value or don't like two person shows
See it if I liked the son and neighbor characters but the script doesn't gel and actors were stumbling on lines
Don't see it if The show was tonally all over the place and didn't know if it wanted to be a dark comedy or a suspense-drama. It ultimately failed at both
See it if You don't mind a slow burn first half as two clowns slowly discover heady concepts of existence. Hilarious and surprisingly moving payoff!
Don't see it if You don't like clowning or lack patience in watching a long setup. Really worth it if you stick it out!
See it if You're already familiar with both plays
Don't see it if You're not open to a concept not being fully explored. Acting was a mixed bag but the Vanya/Romeo was a little embarrassing to watch
See it if You like strange, Lynchian, tweet plays that are big on weirdness and short on answers.
Don't see it if You like a clear plot and defined characters
See it if You want a straight forward (for the most part) production of Twelfth Night with a particularly charming Feste and Maria.
Don't see it if you saw Fiasco's warmly hilarious production at CSC last fall cause this pales in comparison. Actors and designers are all on different page
See it if you don't mind heavy subject matter. Though the writer does a great job of keeping moments of (sometimes laugh-out-loud) levity throughout.
Don't see it if you're turned off by (unfortunately) topical themes and events.
See it if You want a laugh-out-loud, wacky comedy with tight direction and actors willing to fully commit to the hilariously bizarre circumstances
Don't see it if You are skittish about raunchy humor. And do NOT bring children to this show
See it if you can allow yourself to just go with a show like a ride. Two strong, VERY physical performances (especially Colin Cambell) on point
Don't see it if Look. You won't understand 50% of the lines. Strong Cork dialect with made up phrases strewn throughout. But the impact is what matters
See it if you want a solid two hours of laughter.
Don't see it if you need you're comedies more grounded or you're not a fan of farce in general
See it if You want a breezy, 70 minute comedy with plenty of heart and just enough pathos to not feel like an extended sketch
Don't see it if You don't like bad language and can't enjoy a somewhat slight premise
See it if You like to support new, original musicals
Don't see it if The idea of cheesy heart string-pulling, uneven comedy, and spookiness combined into a musical doesn't strike your interest.
See it if You like bold theatre that makes you laugh, think. And feel.
Don't see it if You have a weird hangup about going to TriBeCa to see plays.
See it if You’re a fan of Eno’s deadpan absurdity. You like strong takes on classical material
Don't see it if You don’t like classical adaptations to be so cheekily irreverent. You’re not a fan of Eno
See it if You want to support one is mainly a one-person show for the majority of the running time or want a unique take on Frankenstein
Don't see it if You’re a Frankenstein purist or are averse to talky, “storytelling” plays with little action
See it if What a twisted delight! Like a Who's Afraid of Virgina Woolf and No Exit mashup. I was on the edge of my seat laughing and cringing.
Don't see it if You dislike adaptations that take liberty with source material or you can't see how marital strike could be used as the basis of dark comedy
See it if You want to see a fascinating update of a classic play.
Don't see it if You'll have to listen closely as there are some heavy dialects, but it's definitely worth it
See it if You're a LaBute fan. The third piece: Unlikely Japan is some of his best writing in years and beautifully performed by Gia Crovatin
Don't see it if You don't like LaBute or can't stand uncomfortable, squirm-inducing material
See it if You want a deceptively light, tight love story with a lot of laughs and heart.
Don't see it if You think a play needs to be a certain length. It's tight, 50-minute runtime might be too short for some
See it if you want to LAUGH! I've never seen an episode of the show and it didn't matter, I was cackling throughout like an idiot.
Don't see it if No reason not to see it. Funniest solo show I've ever seen and the full body and vocal work of Ipema must be seen to be believed!
See it if You like Tennessee Williams and want to see one of the best acting performances of the year in Juan Francisco Villa's take on Tennessee
Don't see it if You dislike gay themes or have an aversion to two character plays.
See it if You want to see some of the most talented women working today complemented by some delightful modern dance
Don't see it if You want a traditional play. This is a series of monologues semi-memorized (some more than others) interspersed with dance
See it if you don't believe that the classics (especially Williams) can still resonate today. This will make you a believer.
Don't see it if you're not a fan of prop-less, theatrical staging.
See it if You wanted to see a talented multi-ethnic cast in a charming and mostly light-hearted comedy-drama
Don't see it if you like a big message with your shows or are looking for a straight comedy or drama
See it if you love any of the actors (John Glover especially broke my heart) or are a Terrence McNally fan.
Don't see it if you have a short attention span. The play's a little slow and though played brilliantly by Douglas Hodge, it does center on an unlikable man
See it if You have an extremely low bar for sitcom-lite comedy and/or want to see Hayley Mills live
Don't see it if you are expecting anything more than two-dimensional cliche characters drinking wine and occasionally dropping "funny" one-liners
See it if you appreciate people who can honor a Shakespearean text while simultaneously making it sound fresh and fun for today.
Don't see it if you need spectacle or dislike Shakespeare.
See it if you like you're Shakespeare zany with a large dollop of irreverence.
Don't see it if you're a Shakespeare purist. There's a LOT of random shtick and ad-libbing that sometimes really distracts from the actual comedy.
See it if You need a good laugh and you want to see a masterclass in clowning and comedic acting.
Don't see it if you don't like supremely silly comedies
See it if You need a laugh in these dark, dark times and are all about slapstick and numerous jokes about pop culture and politics sprinkled in
Don't see it if You prefer your comedy "highbrow"
See it if You are open to plays being presented in an atypical format. You're willing to go along for a ride.
Don't see it if You need a lot of obvious spectacle.
