Coal Country
East Village
Intense, Resonant, Relevant, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You want to see an incredibly well acted play that has much to say about families, love, and how unfair our economic system is to many.

Don't see it if You want something flashy or very theatrical. This is raw, unvarnished emotion.

Also One of the best pieces of theater I have ever seen, and I have seen a ... Read more Read less

Soho/Tribeca
Great acting, Relevant

See it if You appreciate offbeat theater, can process a comedic/absurdist look at war & conflict, and want to see really good actors up (very) close.

Don't see it if You don’t have a sense of humor that values absurdity, or if you like your theater and it’s messaging served up in traditional fashion.

The Judas Kiss
Brooklyn
Overrated

See it if Seeing Rupert Everett (who is very good in the show) outweighs sitting through 2 1/2 hours of a not very good play.

Don't see it if You are expecting to see something about Oscar Wilde in his prime -- this deals with the end of his life, and does so in a turgid manner.

Radiant Vermin
Midtown E
Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Original

See it if You value acting over fantastic sets and production values.

Don't see it if Seeing two actors (a third has two relatively small roles) on a bare stage does not appeal to you.

Slow, Indulgent, Disappointing, Excruciating

See it if You want to see some great actors, up close.

Don't see it if Hard to believe that the same guy who wrote Angels in America also penned this claptrap. Why Oskar Eustis revived it is anyone's guess.

Also Gives the audience no credit for being able to figure out parallels wi... Read more Read less

White Noise
East Village
Indulgent, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Disappointing, Ambitious

See it if You want to see an ambitious play that deals with the serious and overriding topic of race relations.

Don't see it if You don't want to sit through a 3 1/4 hour play that should have been about 2 hours, lacks adequate character development, and has a

Also frankly ridiculous "twist" at its center.

The Total Bent
East Village
Original, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if You value some great singing and musicianship over a totally coherent story line.

Don't see it if You lack an appreciation of music.

The Effect
West Village
Clever, Original, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if You are bothered by our pill popping culture.

Don't see it if You love popping pills to get through the day.

Indecent
Midtown W
Absorbing, Entertaining, Great acting, Intelligent, Original

See it if You value intelligent, well-crafted theater with an important story to tell.

Don't see it if Your idea of a perfect night at the theater is Cats or Les Mis.....

Great acting, Intelligent, Original, Funny, Delightful

See it if You enjoy offbeat but intelligent theater which is extremely well acted.

Don't see it if You are hard of hearing and have trouble with accents. Or, if your idea of a smashing night of theater is a big Broadway musical.
