See it if you seek insight into what it's like to go thru infertility treatment.

Don't see it if you don't want to feel like you're going thru infertility treatment.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Entertaining, Great acting, Intelligent

See it if you're attending with someone who has a short attention span, easily bored with one story because you get nine stories in this show!

Don't see it if you don't have patience for uneven performances.

Absorbing, Intelligent, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if you want to see a story delving into race relations

Don't see it if you are bothered by characters who are tone deaf to, and apologists for white privilege.

Easy to relate, Smart, Irritating, Cliched, Solid acting

See it if you don't get enough office politics at work and like stories dealing with workplace issues.

Don't see it if cacaphony of actors yelling over each other on stage would irritate you. Kinda a downer for women who find this topic frustrating.

One Funny Mother
Midtown W
Likeable, Easy stage presence, Repetitive, Dated, Lacks edge

See it if You don't want anything complicated or too complex a plot to follow and would enjoy an evening around lots of easy laughers.

Don't see it if You want more than poop, boob and fart jokes.

Poignant, Empowering, Delightful, Absorbing, Must see

See it if you can get tickets to the Fringe Encore performance this fall 2016

Don't see it if you are easily bored by solo shows and a Moth champion story teller isnt enough for you, or you want more complicated staging.

The Mushroom Cure
East Village
Absorbing, Entertaining, Great acting, Educational, Too long

See it if You want a window into an OCD mind

Don't see it if Rambling actors easily irritate you

Snarky, Horny, Edgy, Relevent, Longer than necessary

See it if youre in high school or parents of high schoolers. This play's a window into the teenaged world. Kinda sad.

Don't see it if you want good lighting design. One actress was on her mark, nearly center stage, but in the dark thru much of a major scene. So distracting.

96
Intelligent, Masterful, Must see, Poignant, Well-executed

See it if You want to be thoroughly engaged from the moment the house lights dim at the start of the play,to the very end of the 60min show.Excellent!

Don't see it if You're a very linear thinker and don't like surprises, because this script is a sheer delight as three stories bounce around & mesh together

Disappointing, Confusing, Overrated, Irritating, Excruciating

See it if you're supportive friends/family. I confirm critic DavidRoberts' Show-Score of 45 & a weary audience denied an interesting story, well-told

Don't see it if You'd rather be outside sweating. Cool AC here, but no smartly-developed characters to care about in a coherent story that moved me.

When It's You
Midtown W
Slow, No growth arc, Banal, Indulgent, Disappointing

See it if you like to support one woman shows.

Don't see it if you expect more action and character growth. Amazing effort by this lead actress, but the script left me wanting more.

Banal, Disappointing, Confusing, Excruciating, Edgy

See it if you like modern takes to traditional stories

Don't see it if you're expecting a comedy. This play is a drama with a few wise cracks thrown in, with too many characters to keep track of.

81
Delightful, Clever, Funny, Fluffy

See it if you want to finally see what all the fuss is about.

Don't see it if you're someone like me who gets swept up in hype and winds up with super high expectations that will be impossible to meet.

Clever, Enlightening, Absorbing, Great acting, Must see

See it if You'd like: Another angle to the "Sound of Music." Solid acting from entire cast. A show w/good pacing & nice mix of drama w dash of comedy.

Don't see it if You won't like a coming of age story of a gay nazi, and can't bear to see two men kiss onstage.

76
Educational, Intense, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Distracting

See it if U like gossipy nyc history, like when actors solidly play multiple roles. The Harry Thaw actor specifically caught lots of attention.

Don't see it if you're easily distracted by 1906 dialog peppered anachronistically with modern terms "wow" "huggies!" and the like.

68
Stuck with me, Clever staging, Sporadically clever wiring, Mostly contrived, Uneven acting

See it if You want to see a production that makes good use of its bare bones set. Also if you like stories about writers with writers block.

Don't see it if Long drawn out dialogue easily frustrates you and you're someone would prefer a brisk breezy 75 min show

Queens
Entertaining, Relevant, Exciting, Quirky, Uproarious adventure

See it if you want to see skilled comedic character actor in action. While rambunctious a show, it's still at its core a touching coming of age story.

Don't see it if youre irritated by obnoxious audience members who distract others in the audience and detract from the performance.

Over long, Good chemistry, Great staging, Disappointing, Rambling

See it if you're a sci fi fan and you appreciate good set design, characters with interesting back stories.

Don't see it if you want well structured story that moves forward steadily

Charming couple, Funny, Nice, Lacking edge, White-washed

See it if You want to meet a sweet polite couple.

Don't see it if You're looking for a gritty race talk. I wanted more banter between husband & wife

Funny, Smart, Touching, Solid cast, Longer than needed

See it if you want to see a strong opening monlogue. The play has a great start, then fades.

Don't see it if you want more action and variation in staging.

Clever, Great acting, Ambitious, Great staging, Intelligent

See it if you want somethig quirky. I was impressed with the actors' concentration to pull off such dense dialog while keeping the ping pong going.

Don't see it if heat stroke is a concern. I sat next to a fan but the AC was not working well, if at all, in this small 4th floor performance space.
