Queen of Hearts
Brooklyn
Entertaining, Ambitious, Intense, Great acting, Clever

See it if Great dancing and singing. Actors in show have to pull off a big show in a small space. Very imaginative show, lots of fun, tough subject

Don't see it if Off Broadway and somewhat experimental shows are not entertaining for you. You do not like difficult, in your face subject matter.

Delightful, Great choreography, Fun, Great acting, Great singing

See it if You love the Temptations and the feeling the you can hardly sit still in your seat because you want to sway and dance.

Don't see it if This is not boring like Cher or Summer. Story is a little weak and it is a little slow at times during dialog - but then a song comes along!

The Light
Midtown W

See it if You love Disney. You know the story and have seen the movie. You like musicals that follow the movie exactly. Disney Spectacular!

Don't see it if Disney is definitely not your thing. You are bothered by children singing along during the show. Parents who let their kids stand and walk

Great singing, Overrated, Fluffy, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if You like and appreciate LaChanze - who is fabulous in this show. You love Donna Summer music. Like shows that are made out of hit singles

The Parisian Woman
Midtown W
Great acting, Masterful, Entertaining, Overrated, Slow

See it if You like the usual story of family disconnect and dysfunction - with great acting by Uma Thurman.
