See it if Slice-of-life look at how a person (Chris, etc.) comes into their identity, tho each key moment is shown thru different actors over time.
Don't see it if Don't like multiple actors of different gender, race, cultural bgd playing same character. Dislike having to "find" who is Chris (SAY name)!
See it if If U find the writings of Gabriel Garcia Marquez a bit daunting then this lively production of ...MACONDO may spur U to try again. Funny too
Don't see it if Skip if characters with impossibly long names bother you, or actors playing multiple characters & switching between solo & group performance
See it if Oddest of oddball love triangles featuring an animal collector & his prize possession: A Woman covered head to toe with Hair. Not for all??
Don't see it if Adventurous auds only, especially Beatles fans with ideas about copyright infringement. Bald people may feel jealous of the constructed 1zee
See it if I've been making the Off-Off Bdwy rounds (mainly female playwrights) & POWER STRIP is the best of the bunch. Linear story w/ flashbacks. GO!
Don't see it if Don't see if you don't like seeing stories about refugees, paranoia, and romances torpedoed by religious laws & horrifying circumstances.
See it if Welcome to 1975 (do Millennials know who Nixon was). In any case, no1 under age 50 will get the 70's jokes or a Keanu Reeves-clone as McBeth
Don't see it if Skip if U R a Shakespeare purist. Or if U have not recently viewed the film "Scotland,PA." If a boring 1st act isn't worth a lively 2nd act.
See it if If U find negativity funny then this story of a newly divorced misanthrope works ("Guy talk" scenes esp.). Then he turns Casanova ... how??
Don't see it if Don't see if U don't like onstage sex & full-frontal nudity w/ the LIGHTS ON! (This puts Frankie & Johnny to shame). Very anti-Republican 2
See it if It's hard to believe this show opened in 1987 w/ NINE actors. It's since moved around in '7' odd venues & has been whittled down to 5 actors
Don't see it if If U can't get a 'close' seat U may be straining to hear & losing Catherine Russell whenever her character sits down (NOT a raked stage??)
See it if This One-woman show is worth a 2nd look (1st caught a preview). NY auds force actors to commit, even when playing an autobiographical part!
Don't see it if If U find deplore listening to a woman review her life with 20-20 hindsight, or can't relate to the biography of a Jewish American Princess.
See it if 4get the 2-minute sex scene at the top of the show, this is a funny 2-hander that'll bring back memories of all your previous 1-nite-stands
Don't see it if You are a big prude (15 sec. of Michael's butt and a similar left-boob look at Audra's). Some F-bombs. Don't find low-class romance funny.
See it if Athletic young cast set adrift in a spacy play that uses 1 set, some astronaut costumes, video, & music to hold the flimsy script together.
Don't see it if If you've seen the advertising, then know that "sizzling romp" are the last 2 words U would use to describe this play. If U hated 2001, well
See it if Never thought I'd see a MAAN that would top Kenneth Branagh's film version, but this one does it & adds a R&B groove too! LAFF FEST to boot!
Don't see it if If U R a Shakespearean purist U may object 2 song additions/substitutions as well as a few modern day additions to the characters. Go anyway
See it if Well, the top reason to see this revival is the perfect cast of '4'. In 1987 show John Malkovich won DD & Joan Allen got the Tony. Repeat!!!
Don't see it if Very talky show, monologues become rants quickly. Easy to 'hear' but not always easy to 'understand' due to the rapid-fire speaking.
See it if One-man show that is somewhat immersive with the actor (of TV's Dexter) talking and not talking to the audience. A bit repetitive (shorten?)
Don't see it if If you are uncomfortable with a performer wandering into the audience but does it more than once. If you don't like jokes that are repeated.
See it if Blending Shakespeare with original music has been a hit/miss endeavour in years past, but this version is more hit than miss. Bway vets help
Don't see it if IF U like your Shakespeare PURE then this may not be 1 for you. But if U are willing to listen to the Bard's words musicalized then play on!
See it if Very much an Off-Broadway show with expected elements of how whacked-out life can become, even in the waiting room of a funeral parlor. Okay
Don't see it if Do not see if you believe in the sanctity of the funeral ritual, especially with regard to the offstage aftermath of "The Lady" of the title
See it if Die-hard Bard fans are in for some chuckles, especially from the experienced band of "Mechanicals" that steal the show w/ Pyramus & Thisbe!!
Don't see it if IF you are a stickler for appropriate vocal volume, 1 of the veterans thought he was performing in Central Park. A bit prudish costuming 2??
See it if In gambling there's a statistical chance that you "might" win your money back, but with Bdwy it's 100% risk. Get with Jessica, she knows all
Don't see it if If you prefer to blithely think that musicals "magically" appear on Broadway, the numbers will erase the innocence of putting on a show.
See it if Not a history lesson for morons as much as a "book list" for those who don't want to be morons on Latino history. More edifying than funny.
Don't see it if Skip if you don't like being lectured on the slow extermination of the Aztecs, Incas, & Latino's as a whole. Skip if U don't speak Spanish.
See it if There's RIOT going on in midtown at the Signature, but it's long slog down the sidewalk to 10th av, then a long slog till the aforesaid riot
Don't see it if If you aren't a BIG fan of Chloe Sevigny or bare-chested boys, then skip it. Seems like a Sam Shepherd wannabe wrote it, no cigar. Great set
See it if If U have been in or seen a show where something unexpected goes wrong onstage but the actors ignore it & keep going -this is THAT show x100
Don't see it if Don't see if you can't tell the difference btwn what should be happening onstage & what should NEVER happen! Otherwise U'll miss the jokes!!
See it if This is 1 of those shows where either U get it or U don't. Luckily, I got it! This isn't your daddy's PETER PAN, this is an insane revision!
Don't see it if If U don't have an open mind & imagination much of this will fall flat. Flying w/o Foys & Frenchmusic interludes notwithstanding, NOT4kids
See it if In 2013, actor Michael Urie won the Drama Desk for solo perf, now he's ready to compete in the Lead Actor category. See it now or pay Bdwy $
Don't see it if This is 3 hrs (w/ 1 break) of one-liners & family melodrama, so if U're a 90 min play type this 1 may be 2 much. Diction-nazis stay away too
See it if 99% perfect big-budget musical until that 2-bitter bittersweet ending. Really? Is that the only way to end a Love Triangle? Otherwise GREAT!
Don't see it if Lotsa duets in this show, maybe more than Phantom, so if U hated PotO then U might skip this. Shows a dark side of Viet Nam so there's that!
See it if A "Peep Show" gets a strange, but somewhat effective, re-vamping as "8" dancer-actors speak a sonnet then Dance in their skivvies. Shocking?
Don't see it if Using exploitation (lingerie-clad hotties) to protest the same is a slippery slope. Some will be offended, pervs will be aroused. No cigar?
See it if Saw their 3rd perf. & there were a couple line goofs plus open/closed sign has not been mastered by the cast. That aside, Dietz' play WORKS!
Don't see it if U prefer larger cast shows? This 2-hander may not meet your needs. Solid acting from both, tho theme of AIDS crisis may be uncomfortable 2 u
See it if They really should have sold the 8-show run as a "package" for fans due to the number of guests that rotated in-and-out each night. Magic!!
Don't see it if If U don't like KC why bother, unless U like 1 of her many guests: CeCe Winans, Chele Wright, Laura Benanti, etc. Also, if U dislike WICKED
See it if I saw the non-musical version of this on Broadway in 2003 w/ Molly RIngwald as Rose. A simple but easy-to-like story set in 1922. Homesick??
Don't see it if Although some lines R funny, they come in response to marital duress. Enchantment is in the eye of the beholder & mostly women attended.
See it if The clock's tickin folks! At the end of FROZEN's 2nd yr on Bdwy it's '2' biggest stars'll be leaving, so don't delay seeing Patti & Caissie!
Don't see it if .. if U R a man who prefers to be seated among same (theater was packed w/ adult women, some kids). If U dislike seeing Special FX on stage.
See it if Bella Abzug was a major force for Feminism in the 70's, so it's kind of ironic her story is being told by a MAN (in the 1st person no less)!
Don't see it if Skip if U don't want to hear a feminist rant, tho U could replace Nixon w/ Trump and it would still apply to today. If U hate his voice??
See it if Derren Brown has a 'Secret' but the only way to 'really' learn it is to attend the show more than once. He has other secrets too ... yours!!
Don't see it if Don't see if you can't keep secrets nor wish to reveal any. Skip if U don't like improv-oriented shows that require audience participation.
See it if 4 women take the stage & then go out of their damn minds to fulfill the rituals of their "Dead Leaders Club." Only for those seeking risks.
Don't see it if Don't see if you are a sensitive person, especially concerning animals or humans. Has some lesbian kissing in too, but the shocks are earned
See it if There's no good reason 4 this Show to be closing (R Baby Boomers dying?) cause the music of Carole King is timeless -along w/ a funny script
Don't see it if IF U R 2 young for early pop music & rock'n'roll artists like Neil Sedaka, The Drifters, The Chiffons, etc Adultery & mental illness upset U
See it if Went BACK! Got a better seat & had a much better time! The music was great both times, but stay away from House right: blinding onstage lite
Don't see it if If U aren't familiar w/ Jim Steinman's pop-rock power-ballad style of music then U may not enjoy this as much as those raised on it.
See it if Fans of streaming TV hits like "Fargo" & "BrainDead" should be satisfied w/ Mary Elizabeth Winstead's NY stage debut. But she can do more ..
Don't see it if Don't see if U don't like 2-handers? (2 of the 3 roles are played by 1 actor). Be sure to get the "hearing devices," may lose words #DICTION
See it if In 2001, I saw an outdoor prod. of The Seagull w/. Meryl Streep & Kevin Kline. This indoor version (w/o A/C) is intimate fun, a REAL family!
Don't see it if IF U don't like a lil diversity in casting AND technique (1 guy shouted his lines, another too soft to be heard). If no A/C is an issue.
See it if 20 yrs after its debut, CotSC is still relevant as the scammers go after the unwary (again). Worth seeing for David Warshofsky's perf as dad
Don't see it if If you don't like Sam Shepard plays but are curious, then U could do much worse. If U abhor stage nudity then skip. Gross ref's to animals 2
See it if You might like this if you have a real good seat and a sense of humor that appreciates rhyming verse channeled through the Three Stooges.
Don't see it if Don't C unless some-1 that knows your sense of humor recommends U see it. Beware of "revenge recommendations" that hope U will hate it too.
See it if Foursome (2 couples) takes the stage (at times) & tries to set off sparks with middling results. "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" - NOT! :(
Don't see it if Don't see it if U R prudish & don't wish to see various "sex toys" exhibited but rarely used to any comic effect (& NO sexual effect AT ALL)
See it if A year-&-a-half on the Bway, but still as fresh & relevant as a TEXT ALERT. Altho several 'Evans' have come & gone it's the tunes that SOAR!
Don't see it if Show will mean less to U if you've never been the outsider, "Waving Through a Window" at the 'real' world. Also, songs R more pop than Bway?
See it if ROCKTOPIA vainly tries to unite fans of classical music w/ rock ballads (no backstory as to Y). No songlist in the program so study opera??
Don't see it if Skip if U don't like LIVE concert performers that cannot riff with the audience, basically Sing & walk-off style. Be a fan of slow music too
See it if Small cast dealing w/ the huge topic of mental disability in a small dysfunctional family. Lead actor actually HAS Downs Syndrome. Poignant?
Don't see it if EVERYONE is playing an obnoxious character in play, so "Amy" is the only one to root for. Her perf can't fill this House-get hearing device?
See it if IF you are a fan of the many stars that Broadway has created, then be sure your cam/phone batteries are fully charged so you can take pics!!
Don't see it if Skip if you mainly interested in newer stars of which there were only a few portraits from stars of recent hits in Shubert theaters only??
See it if The events following a regional disaster take a backseat to chit-chat, tea, & adultery. Not G.B. Shaw, but Brit-philes may like its 3 stars
Don't see it if If U don't pay close attention U may miss the backstory that lends gravity to this seemingly trivial coded "chat" between 3 retired folks.
See it if Count Orsino opens the show w/ 1 of Shakespeare's most famous monologues, "If Music be the Food of Love ... Play on" -and so they do -"PLAY"
Don't see it if If you like the Bard totally traditional then U might not like the additional songs that bring the show to nearly 3 hrs (w/ intermission)
See it if HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS-$48-49K (last wk gross)--37% attendance--Avg. ticket price: $13.51. Now that's a lot of comps & No-shows! Word-Is-Out.
Don't see it if Numbers r bad, reviews r bad, & anyone who's seen ANY other Xmas show is shakin their heads. 3 newbie singers cannot carry bad songs/intro's
See it if Shows about stand-up comics are un-funny as a rule. This 1 takes on the rom-com genre & proves that the same goes for romance. Needs depth??
Don't see it if Skip if U like comedies to actually be funny. Don't go unless U R already a fan of stars Max Crumm, Paul Molnar & Lucy DeVito (tru-troupers)
See it if Sept. 14, 2008 -The day this Jukebox musical opened & it's still running 9 yrs. later to full houses of grinning lil old ladies. Don't scoff
Don't see it if If you don't like pop songs from the 50's & 60's (see list below) or all-female casts (4 cuties). If U don't like audience interaction also
See it if Well, Harold Prince's PRINCE OF BROADWAY closed today but I got to see the show a coupla weeks ago. Solid cast of Bdwys best plus great nos.
Don't see it if If you don't like revues, even with very familiar material, U might be overwhelmed. Too many complex characters for too small a cast. 2much!
See it if If anything, STUFFED! is the most accurately titled show on Off-Bdwy, & easier to put on a marquee than Everything U wanted 2 know bout food
Don't see it if If U don't like hearing women rant about what they can & can't eat. Skip if 4-women trapped on a micro-stage is scary 4 u. Vagina-monos-NOT?
See it if Hard to believe it's taking only "6" superb actors & "4" musicians 2 turn the Bard's "Measure4Measure" into this funny-tongue-in-cheek romp!
Don't see it if I imagine die-hard Shakespeare-philes could find fault with the re-writing of the Bard's text, but it still rhymes, even when it's not sung?
