Romantic, Intelligent, Indulgent, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you love classic theater and want to see a master class in acting aka Laura Benanti at Eliza.

Don't see it if you can't make it before it closes on July 7th. Otherwise, GO SEE IT.

Must see, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if you love all things Harry Potter or if you love stunning theater production with jaw-dropping staging. It will surprise you at every turn.

Don't see it if you don't like Harry Potter. You will be quite confused by a lot of the story moments without a general knowledge of the book/film franchise

Angel & Echoes
Midtown E
Great acting, Intelligent, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if you love plays led by a small cast about tough subjects like religion, oppression, and murder or if you love anything from Edinburgh Fringe.

Don't see it if you aren't a fan of single actor shows or bare staging. Each play is only an hour each but the lack of movement can make it feel longer.

Present Laughter
Midtown W
Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Great staging

See it if you love classic slapstick comedy and entertaining characters. I haven't laughed so much in months! Kline was born to play this role.

Don't see it if you aren't a fan of dry, British humor or the classic style of slow and repetitious comedies. Not all accents are quite believable.

Angry Young Man
Chelsea
Clever, Great acting, Confusing, Funny, Quirky

See it if you enjoy improv-style physical comedy with props and an interesting format. 4 actors/1 role acting should interest you.

Don't see it if aren't a fan of unconventional comedies or physical/prop humor. Not a philosophical look at immigration either.

Matilda
Midtown W
Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Great staging, Quirky

See it if you love the classic Roald Dahl book and the musical work of Tim Minchin. This fun show is perfect for all ages, kids especially.

Don't see it if you're a fan of the popular film adaptation of Matilda. This is much more dependent on dry British humor.

The Last Ship
Midtown W
Great staging, Slow, Ambitious, Great acting

See it if you love stories of small towns coming together for a big cause. The folk-style music and the staging was great as well.

Don't see it if you're expecting a jaw-dropping Sting performance. I would have enjoyed it more if it had been someone else in his role.

A Month in the Country
East Village
Great acting, Great staging, Intelligent, Romantic

See it if you're interested in a romance-driven classic plays or the likes of Taylor Schilling and Peter Dinklage leads.

Every Brilliant Thing
West Village
Absorbing, Great acting, Intelligent, Profound

See it if you enjoy small, immersive theatre led by a solo act telling the story of depression, gratitude, and heart.

Don't see it if you hate audience participation. Odds are, you'll be asked to do some small part in the show like I was.

Smart People
Midtown W
Clever, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Disappointing

See it if you're intrigued by the conversation of racial dynamics told in a clever way. It's funny and bold while altogether original.

Don't see it if you're tired of plays that feel like a teaching moment/learning lesson or if you're looking for great writing or well-rounded story.

80
The Crucible
Midtown W
Great acting, Great staging, Thought-provoking, Intense

See it if you're a fan of Arthur Miller or any of the all-star cast. Ben Whishaw and Saoirse Ronan are spectacular. Fantastic simple staging as well.

Don't see it if you don't like intense plays or stories involving witchcraft.

93
Entertaining, Great writing, Hilarious, Indulgent, Must see

See it if you're prepared to laugh for two hours straight and love raunchy humor. Kroll and Mulaney are the hilarious embodiment of cynical old men.

Don't see it if you aren't a fan of dirty/shocking humor or don't enjoy breaking the typical form of theatre.

73
Delightful, Quirky, Romantic, Entertaining

See it if you love the work of Irving Berlin. It's like a high production version of a greatest hits album hitting on all major holidays.

Don't see it if you're looking for an interesting storyline or writing. The story felt loose where the music was strong.

67
Kid Victory
Gramercy
Disappointing, Intense, Slow

See it if you're looking for something that isn't your typical musical or intrigued to see the fantastic lead actor.

Don't see it if you don't care for an abduction/kidnapping/abuse storyline or are looking for a well-acted ensemble. Overall, pretty messy.

87
Hilarious, Quirky, Fluffy, Entertaining

See it if you are a fan of Harry Potter and love a solid parody. These guys seriously know how to tell a hilarious story that all fans will love.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy parody or Harry Potter.

Waitress (NYC)
Midtown W
Delightful, Great singing, Refreshing, Quirky

See it if you love the smell of fresh baked pie and also think that Jessie Mueller is a revelation. The score gets stuck in your head in the best way.

Don't see it if you're uncomfortable with seeing emotional and physical abuse unfold on stage.

84
Sunset Boulevard
Midtown W
Entertaining, Slow, Indulgent

See it if you adore Glenn Close. Without her returning as Norma, the show would be a little drab. She is still THE reason worth seeing it, though.

Don't see it if you're not a fan of Glenn Close's work. This is a long one so be prepared to settle in.

94
Delightful, Entertaining, Funny

Don't see it if you get easily offended, especially by religious humor.

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Enchanting, Funny, Entertaining, Great singing, Clever

See it if You love a good origin story behind the Wizard of Oz. This was my first ever Broadway show and I was let speechless at the whole thing.

70
Cats
Midtown W
Great staging, Quirky, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if You are in for a blast from the past. Very 1980s with a bit of updated hip-hop choreography.

Don't see it if You remember Cats to be the best show in the world.

94
Resonant, Masterful, Great staging, Great singing, Exquisite

See it if you love jazz, mythology, and innovative theater. Easily one of the best new musicals I've seen in years.

Don't see it if you have no heart. This show is stunning and I'd be shocked if you don't like it.

The Workshop
West Village
Clever, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent, Indulgent

See it if you enjoy long plays on the developments of plays in an intimate setting. Funny and self-absorbing but sarcastic and enjoyable.

Don't see it if small, self-absorbed theatre isn't your thing as the audience of 40 or so are tucked together.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great singing, Must see

See it if you love shows that reinvent classic films. The music numbers works so well you would think it was always a musical, not a regular film.

Don't see it if don't like repetitious comedy or remakes of standard films. At times t feels unnecessary but you get sucked into its quirkiness quickly.

68
The Terrifying
Lower E Side
Disappointing, Intense, Slow

See it if you enjoy small theatre plays with limited cast and dystopia feel.

Don't see it if you're looking to be scared or creeped out. A lot of sudden loud noises meant to strike fear, instead caused some laughter.

65
Great acting, Confusing, Indulgent, Great staging

See it if you love any of the all-star cast. Broderick is a bright light in this otherwise mediocre play. Wonderful staging as well.

Don't see it if you dislike weird subplots or semi-dystopia. Half of the show I enjoyed, the other half (targeting subplot) I really didn't.

Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Great writing, Refreshing

See it if you love small theatre with big heart. This production was a refreshing and fun musical comedy based on the story of how a magazine began.

The Real Thing
Midtown W
Disappointing, Slow, Great writing

87
Entertaining, Intense, Riveting, Great staging

Grounded
East Village
Great staging, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Great acting

See it if the thought of a one-woman show with Anne Hathaway, dir by Taymor intrigues you. Which it should as she is brilliant. Provocative and deep.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy shows dealing with political or timely issues like drone pilots in the military.

67
Tuck Everlasting
Midtown W
Delightful, Disappointing, Great singing, Slow

See it if you're a fan of the original work by Natalie Babbitt and aren't expecting much. The writing was decent and the acting was good as well.

Don't see it if you're a fan of the original work by Natalie Babbitt and are expecting a masterpiece adaptation. Weak songs and drawn out story drags.

Privacy
East Village
Clever, Intelligent, Slow, Thought-provoking, Disappointing

See it if you're there for Daniel Radcliffe or intrigued by the idea of being watched. You'll learn a thing or two about the NSA and lack of privacy.

Don't see it if you don't want to watch a high school special seminar on the ways technology is bad for your privacy.

69
Absorbing, Disappointing, Great acting, Indulgent

See it if you enjoy the period piece style and the art of deception. The acting was great as well. Janet McTeer is the perfect embodiment for revenge.

Don't see it if you don't like long plays on confusing subjects. You've got to be able to keep up with the quippy dialog in order to catch the humor.

Delightful, Quirky, Romantic, Great staging, Funny

See it if you love the original film or if you love Phillipa Soo in anything she does like I do. Quirky, fun, and overall enjoyable.

Don't see it if you're looking for a memorable theatre experience. There aren't any stand out songs, though they are all good. Phillipa makes this show.

If I Forget
Midtown W
Great staging, Profound, Intense, Slow, Thought-provoking

See it if you enjoy family drama and seeing the deep undercuts of religion and the separation from what it means to each person.

Don't see it if you aren't ready for an intense drama discussing anti-Semitism and timely political debate.

89
Enchanting, Must see, Romantic

See it if you love Josh Groban or want to break the mold of typical staging. Viewers really become a part of the action no matter where you sit.

Don't see it if you aren't into the idea of a musical based on a slice of War and Peace.

88
Delightful, Entertaining, Intelligent

See it if you have seen the original film or if you're ready to just relax and have so much fun. You'll walk out a little bit kinkier.

Don't see it if drag queens/shows aren't your cup of tea. Though, even then, you would adore this show.

Absorbing, Great staging, Great acting, Must see, Profound

See it if You can afford it. But also if you love hip hop, American history, crying a little, or being a part of Broadway history.
