The Minutes
Midtown W
Disappointing, Quirky, Dated, Good cast, Pompous

See it if You have a cheap ticket or follow a cast member. You enjoy 1960s Twilight Zone episodes.

Don't see it if The funny part isn’t funny. And then if you’re hoping for a twist at the end to make it worthwhile, it doesn’t. And it’s not. Skip this one.

Coal Country
East Village
Edutainment, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Great singing, Great acting

See it if You enjoy documentary and love Steve Earle. I knew he wrote the music, didn't know I'd practically be sitting on his lap!

Don't see it if you're not up for a downer (like country music story-telling kind of downer). You're the owner of a non-union mine.

Great writing, Relevant, Funny, Intelligent, Thought-provoking

See it if esp if u have a young woman in your life to bring. You want entertainment, w/eye opening look at how women are not protected by US constit.

Don't see it if truth is painful to you. You're not ready for reality. You want something light and fluffy.

Also It IS very funny - but it's serious/heavy material. Ages 15 + (mature ... Read more Read less

Days of Rage
Midtown W
Quirky, Pointless, Relevant

See it if I think the point is that it's all for naught. 60s protests or 2018s protests... is any of it getting us anywhere? Maybe that's the point?

Don't see it if you're expecting much.

Also Music was good.

Banal, Cliched, Great singing, Entertaining, Get a cheap ticket

See it if you LOVE Donna Summer's music and you got yourself a cheap ticket. The singing is really excellent and the dancing is fun. It's fun.

Don't see it if you're expecting anything other than song/dance spliced with bits of drama from her life. And there WAS drama. Abuse, drugs, god...

Funny, Absorbing, Intelligent, Relevant, Quirky

See it if you're an Eve Ensler fan, feminist, daughter, know someone who has cancer, don't mind laughing/crying at the same time.

Don't see it if I'm not sure how it will play to those under 35.

Oslo (Broadway)
Upper W Side
Absorbing, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Funny, Relevant

See it if you've spent time pondering the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and you enjoy entertaining political discussion

Don't see it if you have no interest in the topic or if you're looking for something light

Also I was surprised to find out that the show ran 3 hours, it was never bo... Read more Read less

Ugh!, Poke-yer-eyes-out, David b what were you thinking??!!, Excruciating, Great singing

See it if you have no other options. I don't mean other options as in shows to see, but it's this or death... Many of my 17 year old students liked it

Don't see it if you have anything else to do

The Encounter
Midtown W
Clever, Disappointing, Intelligent, Slow, Overrated

See it if I wouldn't recommend this to anyone - BUT my theater friends LOVED it and thought it was the greatest show ever.

Don't see it if You're expecting the greatest show ever. It can't possibly deliver.

Boring, Amature, Slow, Relevant, Earnest

See it if you want to support the hopes and dreams of this cast and crew. & if they hand out lyrics sheets. I have no idea what they were singing abou

Don't see it if you want to see a well put together production that is audience "ready." Though maybe act 2 was better. We didn't stay to find out.

Waitress (NYC)
Midtown W
Average, Pointless, Quirky, Funny, Cute

See it if you have very cheap or free tickets and can't get tickets to anything else. Or if you have a connection to someone in the show.

Don't see it if you have anything better to do that day or if you're not a tourist.

For a previous production
Funny, Clever, Entertaining, Great acting, Quirky

See it if you enjoy light teen angst comedy drama. Hopefully they will remove the offensive jewish schtick and references before hitting Broadway.

Don't see it if you hate teenagers and if you think throwing in an obnoxious Jewish character to make the show "relatable" is offensive.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Clever, Brilliant, Epic, Must see

See it if you love Broadway, history, genius, NYC...

Don't see it if If you can't get tickets (and you can't), buy the soundtrack! It's amazing.

81
Funny, Clever, Entertaining

See it if you're looking to change up your typical night out. Add entertainment/education to your regular drinking night or add drinking to theater...

Don't see it if you don't enjoy sitting in a bar with people who are drinking or you don't want to learn while you have a cocktail

92
Great staging, Resonant, Intelligent, Clever, Original

See it if you want to see the untidy behind the scenes of a real life family drama. The three versions of Alison were brilliant. Thank you!

Don't see it if You're expecting big song and dance numbers in the traditional musical way

90
Funny, Great staging, Fluffy, Edgy, Delightful

See it if you like to be entertained. Everyone will like this show unless they're bothered by shoe makers or burly men in aprons or drag queens...

Don't see it if musicals aren't your thing. There's a lot of song and dance. If you're not into that...

95
Great staging, Entertaining, Enchanting, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if You love music and being entertained

Don't see it if it's really expensive! And there are no cheap tickets. And you want to sit up front!

The Inheritance
Midtown W
Great acting, Entertaining, Clever, Intelligent, Absorbing

See it if I've only seen part 1 so far - and can only say GO SEE IT! You'll laugh and cry and look forward to part 2

Don't see it if you're intolerant of gay men

Banal, Cliched, Excruciating, Overrated, Why?

See it if Don’t. Just don’t. Go for a walk. This is Shiite. Go read a book. See a movie.

Don't see it if Exactly. Don’t see it. I have no idea how it is still running

79
Funny, Relevant, Overrated, Fine, Great acting

See it if It's a cute fun show. Definitely an entertaining day/night out.

Don't see it if you're expecting something deep. This is light theater.

75
Miss You Like Hell
East Village
Funny, Great singing, Relevant, In need of editing, 30 min too long

See it if you have kids with you ages 12 and up (maybe 10 and up).

Don't see it if you're looking for something polished. It felt like a staged episode of Sesame Street for teens. Simple language. Clear jumps between topics

80
Indecent
Midtown W
Absorbing, Intelligent, Intense, Thought-provoking

See it if any of these words: history, LGBT, theater, jewish spark some interest. If all of them do.... run to the theater before the show closes.

Don't see it if you think you're finally going to a Jewish themed show that doesn't bring up the holocaust and hit you over the head with it. You're not

76
Boring

See it if you love Danny Devito. He's great in the first act.

Don't see it if Go see something new. This show didn't need to be brought back. It's just not that interesting/important. So many writers... so few produced

60
Terrible sound, Strange fruit followed by sing-a-long?, Missed the mark, Potential but unprofessional

See it if You get tickets for less than $20 and you have very low expectations or little experience with good theater. Some teens will like it.

Don't see it if you have other options

78
Evensong
Queens
Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Affordable, Approachable

See it if You're nearby and you want to support local arts. You want a realistic look at a life at which you otherwise wouldn't take a second glance

Don't see it if you need Disney and shiny things when you sit down in a theater.

83
One Funny Mother
Midtown W
Funny, Fluffy, Quirky, Girls-night-out, Entertaining

See it if you have children/husband that annoy and you'd like someone to commiserate with. You understand women who drink wine and bitch together

Don't see it if you don't like to make fun of your kids, husband, neighbors... You're looking for something deep and meaningful.

90
Delightful, Funny, Absorbing, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if you love pop music of the late 50s - 70s. You love a good "if you can make it here, you'll make it anywhere" story.

Don't see it if you don't love the music of the era

88
The Humans
Midtown W
Great acting, Relevant, Intelligent, Funny, Depressinglyrealistic

See it if for a few hours of reality theater. It's good to see we're all in this together.

Don't see it if you dont want to be depressed by other people's problems. It will make you think hard about your own life.

Small Mouth Sounds
Midtown W
Clever, Delightful, Funny, Sad, Thought-provoking

See it if you've been thinking about heading to a silent retreat but haven't gotten around to it. I left feeling like I'd been right there with them.

Don't see it if you need words and a comfortable seat in order to feel at home at the theater. Or if yogis, gurus, nudity, and nature make you uncomfortable

Blackbird
Midtown W
Thought-provoking, Uncomfortable, Challenging, Quiet, Meh

See it if You want a show that makes you think. But only if you won't be offended by the audience's uncomfortable laughter at lines that aren't funny.

Don't see it if I'm thinking that if you were a victim of rape, especially as a minor, you probably won't find this an enjoyable way to spend an evening.

Hand to God
Midtown W
Edgy, Raunchy, Hilarious, Intense, Great staging

See it if you want to see something unusual on stage. We saw it on Halloween night - perfect. Dark, horrifying and hysterical at the same time. Wow

Don't see it if you're easily offended by theater or expecting highbrow.
