Afterglow

Raunchy, Relevant, Refreshing

See it if You like non-traditional relationships and plays.

Don't see it if You're not okay with full frontal nudity, and weak writing.

The Moors
Midtown W
Funny, Refreshing, Delightful, Clever

See it if you like Bronte literature, and a somewhat experimental story line with a philosophical twist.

Don't see it if you need a cut and dry play. Or aren't open to various elements represented in semi-gothic works.

Disappointing, Indulgent, Excruciating

See it if I don't suggest seeing this show whatsoever. It was by far the most excruciating two hours of my life. Boring, overdrawn, self-indulgent.

Don't see it if You're looking for a quality play with famous actors. This play was written so that these actors could hear themselves talk, or so it seemed

88
Clever, Great acting, Great singing

See it if Make sure to know what Peer Gynt is about before seeing it because it can be confusing. This was a very unique and good interpretation of it

Don't see it if You need a specific and concise plot. The play is a bit complicated if you know none of Ibsen's writings, especially this one.

Waitress (NYC)

Indecent
Midtown W
Exquisite, Great acting, Great writing, Must see, Masterful

See it if This is an absolutely amazing play. The writing, the acting, and everything in it's entirety. A must see.

Don't see it if you're uncomfortable with Holocaust/Homosexual topics.

Excruciating, Raunchy, Slow

See it if you are in the mood to see something that's bad. It's very hard to sit through 2 hours of it with long pauses between acts.

Don't see it if you have to pay for it, honestly. The writing isn't that great, and the idea behind it wasn't executed properly.

71
Clever, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if you are unafraid of seeing pure British work and like Richard Bean's masterful writing. Great acting and very witty.

Don't see it if you cannot appreciate a repetitive theme embedded in existential undertones. Takes a bit getting use to the play, as it is constant.

Daniel's Husband
Midtown W
Refreshing, Relevant, Must see, Great acting, Intense

See it if you want thought provoking theater that addresses issues that arise when one is not legally bound.

Don't see it if You want something light. This is a very serious play, and turns dark in the middle.

Also If you're narrow-minded and have no empathy for human struggle this is... Read more Read less

The Bride
Soho/Tribeca
Ambitious, Entertaining, Dizzying

See it if You like the works of Shakespeare, and low budget (almost experimental) theater. The company does fairly well but it is best suited for fans

Don't see it if You don't have a grasp on Shakespearean plays, primarily because this is two plays patchworked together. It's very easy to lose track.

The Liar
East Village
Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting

See it if you like Ibsen and pentameter. It's a very funny play but you have to be quick about following the plot line. Really great acting.

Don't see it if you don't like classic works. This is a very intelligent play and may not appeal to those who aren't familiar with Ibsen.

Made in China
Midtown E
Quirky, Raunchy

Peer Gynt
East Village
Great acting, Dizzying, Masterful, Thought-provoking

See it if you are familiar with the actual play. If you go in with no back story you will be confused. Amazing performances for something so difficult

Don't see it if you are not open to darker, existential, themes. And if you have no patience or can appreciate a piece as heavy as this.

See it if This play was absolutely amazing, and had an amazing set of actors. Intense! Keeps you intrigued throughout the 2 hours. Really great work!
