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?
See it if First act was stronger than the 2nd, mainly because the 1st focused more on 'Bella' which showcased Ms. Kelly's considerable skills. See it!
Don't see it if Don't go if U R a racist or cannot accept a 90% black Western. Also, if U cannot suspend your disbelief in regard to fantasy elements.
See it if Haven't seen this much Full Frontal Male Nudity since TAKE ME OUT. Seemed a bit gratuitous as did most of the direction. Great cast tho.
Don't see it if Closes Sun. so unless U're willing to see this year's John Guare revival NOW U can always wait for next year's pick? Mostly for Art-lovers.
See it if Kevin Kline has been on Bdwy 19 times w/ a paltry 5 Tony noms. Time for WIN #3 because this hammy, comic role is the culmination of his past
Don't see it if Don't see it if you hate or don't "get" plays about a life in the theater. And plays that feature intentionally hammy acting to get laughs!
See it if When U walk thru the doors U no this ain't goin 2b the same-o same-0. Then the lites go out, Expressionistic theater takes over, what a ride
Don't see it if Not for all tastes, stylized dialogue & settings, plus a 1922-style bashing of the upper classes by the below deck workers. Brief nudity too
See it if Ther' r 7,000 stories in the Naked City but when 9/11 happened those stories were diverted to an airfield in Canada. Amazing ensemble helps!
Don't see it if Don't see if U want stars and solo's, most of the songs are broken down between dozens of characters. If U hate Canadians and related jokes.
See it if Amazing how a play from the 1920's can resonate when confronting themes like capital punishment, yellow journalism & govt corruption? MUST-C
Don't see it if Don't see if U hate star-studded casts. If U don't like Nathan Lane just go to a matinee, he doesn't (Mike McGrath is brilliant replacement)
See it if Immersive theater is makin a comebac on Bdwy, 1st THE ENCOUNTER & now "COMET." U could b ON the stage too, tho "last row" mezz has best view
Don't see it if Die-hard Groban-ites may want 2 catch this tho he does lil in the 1st Act. Onstage seating for dozens of immersion fans. SEE IT NOW or DON'T
See it if IF you are familiar with playwright David Hare then U know U've got your work cut out as audience member. See the movie or READ the play 1st
Don't see it if This is a weirdly adult play with one sex scene, a naked girl painted as a 'tree' & a naked male to start the show. Not for the prudish.
See it if Just went back to see it w/ 75% of the orig. revival cast REPLACED! Good news, they R a spot-on energetic group that NAILS the choreography!
Don't see it if U really need to bring your imagination to this one. U have to believe they are CATS (in wigs, in spandex, dancing & singing). Bucket List??
See it if How many times have U had an opportunity to see ANY production of TROILUS & CRESSIDA, nevermind a 1st rate showing of a 2nd-rate Shakespeare
Don't see it if MUST-SEE for Bard-o-philes and those willing to sit thru a young romance in order to witness one of the most violent battles ever staged!!
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 TWO shows for the price of ONE as Act 1 starts us with snarky Weatherman "Phil Connors" only to b followed in Act 2 by his earned redemption
Don't see it if Don't see if the occasional F-bomb is offensive. I saw the movie so if U haven't then U might want to read some reviews below for others POV
See it if This is a BIG show & it more than fills up the Palace stage. Glenn Close was in perfect form last night going into the final wknd. C IT NOW
Don't see it if Skip if U don't like old-fashioned musicals w/ a car onstage. Seen the movie? U haven't seen anything, but if U hated the movie U mite pass?
See it if 2 hours + no intermission + a great, game cast + cool, but otherwise perfect weather = FREE Shakespeare in the Park as good as it gets.
Don't see it if Republicans should steer clear of Trump/Caesar & the onstage assassination of said figure. Bloody murder not for kids either, male butt too
See it if Easily the darkest musical to come out this season as it follows returning shellshocked vets whose love of music displaces their nightmares
Don't see it if Another Post-WW2 show following WAR PAINT & it's probably geared more to the older crowd. Add Veterans Day parade honorees. All others skip?
See it if Patti Lupone doesn't disappoint tho her Polish accent reduces dialogue to key words only. Christine Ebersole matches her note-4-note in Eng.
Don't see it if Don't see if U were born after 1999, even older folks will be googling for references to the $64,000 question, Rubenstein, & Arden lawsuits.
See it if A country-fied orchestra, a Gospel-ly Slave-chorus, Mark Twain's words, Roger Miller's songs, & a game cast make this THE entertainment pick
Don't see it if If U dislike all of the above elements or U don't like being pressured into seeing it by the 12th (Broadway transfer PLEEZ!!). Use of N-word
See it if If U luv Kristin Chenoweth then U will LUV-LUV-LUV this show. 1 special "surprise" was her rendition of "The Prayer" from Les Miz. LOVE HER!
Don't see it if I have a deeper love for KC so in retrospect I have to question her choices. Namely, guest soloist Andrew Lippa (better writer than singer).
See it if Melissa Errico plays 'Sharon', Finian's daughter, and matches her talents to the various styles of music. Ken Jennings handles the comedy!!
Don't see it if Too-dated costuming mutes Errico's physical charms, but it's still in previews so hemlines could loosen. Racist elements may offend racists.
See it if When Dewey says "You're 10 yrs. old and You're Better than me" he sums up the conceit of the show which takes kids to the top of Mount Rock
Don't see it if Well, it isn't called the School of ROCK for nothing, so forget orchestral tunes, cause these kids ROCK HARD! If U don't like kid actors RUN
See it if N.C. Hunter is the closest thing the Brits have to Anton Chekhov & over 60 yrs. later A DAY BY THE SEA still works on that level.
Don't see it if Certainly not 4 all tastes, but older audiences will easily sympathize with the many over 40 characters in the show. Stay away if anti-Brit!
See it if IF U're wondrin how the REPLACEMENTS R doin at SOMETHING ROTTEN, well the full houses speak volumes: Chase, McClure, Grisetti, Kritzer ROCK!
Don't see it if If U're picky bout how U like your satire portrayed, then this take of old-school Shakespeare & present-day Bdwy (via Nostrodamus) mite irk?
