Something Clean
Midtown W
Great acting, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if Great play, deeply touching, mixes humor with pain. Fantastic acting, especially the mom. Very fluid direction makes the scene transitions

Don't see it if fast and smooth. Simple yet effective set and light design. Best play that I have seen this year! Hope it will transfer to a bigger theater!

Great little coming of age story

See it if coming of age, gay theme and religion are mixed well in this play. Especially love the singing and choreography

Apologia
Midtown W
A mixed bag

See it if this play left me cold and the last scene between the mother and future daughter-in-law feels unearned. Acting is fine, and the old men

Don't see it if character provided much needed comedy relief.

Slice of life

See it if you feel like watching something real. Nothing fancy about the plot, but the acting made it work quite well.

Don't see it if can't handle mostly depressing ambiance, even though it is quite funny occasionally.

Final Follies
West Village
Mixed reult

See it if The third play is the best. Over-the-top script brings much laughter. The first one is ok, but the second one is slow with little payoff

Don't see it if You don’t like the unique style of the playwright

Trainspotting Live
Midtown W
Raunchy, Intense

See it if I don't know what "immersive theater" means anymore. If you want to be much involved, sit either nearby the toilet or across from it

Don't see it if if you want to be "safe", right after you enter the room, sit on the rows to your right. You don't have to sit where the actors ask you to.

Skintight
Midtown W
Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Great acting

See it if Joshua Harmon did it again! He and Stephen Karam have quickly become my favorite playwrights. Tony award for Joshua won't be long.

Don't see it if The dialogue between the father and daughter toward the end is so very good! Idina sure can rock the house without singing at all.

Log Cabin
Midtown W
Confusing, occasionally funny

See it if Sort of an absurdist play. There are many mixed messages in the play. Occasionally funny, but I am not sure what the play is trying to say

Don't see it if Not sure what happened to the sound tonight? If it was intended that way, it had to be one of the worst sound designs I have seen

Entertaining, Funny, Clever

Banal, Disappointing

See it if you haven't seen any other play about deaf people

Don't see it if can't feel emotionally connected to this play at all. Tribes was done much better, and I was in tears by the end. Skip this if you saw Tribe

M. Butterfly
Midtown W
Absorbing, Enchanting, Great staging

See it if Such a delicate story told in such an exquisite manner. It’s the first time in a while that I was awed by Taymor’s masterful skills

Don't see it if Please note full male nudity is essential to the story. There is no way around that.

Red Light Winter
East Village
Absorbing, Great acting

See it if The acting is really good. The script of the first act is amazing.

Don't see it if The second act lost momentum; The stage design is a bit confusing for the last scene; The Davis character is poorly drawn

Afterglow

Banal, Cliched, Disappointing

See it if I should probably rate this much lower based on the quality of the play, if not for the earnest efforts from the good-looking cast

Don't see it if you want to see a play that has anything interesting to say or can't handle male nudity

Also For an ultra low budget show like this, the set design and lighting de... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Clever, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if Wildly imaginative, campy, silly, outrageous adventures with a heart. Great ensemble. Love the set and lighting! Direction is in sure hand

Ambitious, Disappointing

See it if like the playwright's previous work and intend to see all her work

Don't see it if don't like absurdist dark comedy with very few humors in between.

Luft Gangster
East Village
Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if It's definitely a good topic to explore on stage. Real life father and son (who is also the playwright) act together

Don't see it if It doesn't feel "real" to me. The reality must be way grimmer than this.

Clever, Entertaining, Great staging

See it if You like Andy Karl, it's all about him. And he is terrific. Great staging.

Don't see it if The first twenty minutes is very slow. Definitely has room to cut repetitiveness. Be patient and get rewarded by a very good second act.

Good acting, too predictable

See it if Mostly good performances.

Don't see it if Overlong. Could definitely use cutting. The delivery of the message is a little too in your face.

Dated, Slow

See it if Enjoy drama from an old era. The actor who played the father is excellent in the drunken scene

Don't see it if Very slow. uneven acting. I saw picnic on Bway and liked it. Not sure why this play was also presented on Bway

Linda
Midtown W
Interesting ideas, good leading actress

See it if leading actress is carrying the whole show. Act 2 is much better than act 1.

Don't see it if Ambitious ideas, but failed to fully deliver. Monologue is better than dialogue. Casting for the two daughters really confused me.

Variety show on a lower quality

See it if The background music is very nice. I also like the ambience.

Don't see it if Nothing that you haven't seen before. Each act is too short and breaks between scenes are long.

Boring, strange, first act feels too long

See it if you really like the playwright from his previous works

Don't see it if The first act feels excruciatingly long; I didn't recognize the style of the playwright, whose work I usually like

Excruciating, Disappointing, Banal

See it if The play itself is in a very bad shape and the actors can’t do much to save it. Just because you watched 50 shades, doesn’t mean that

Don't see it if You could write a (good) play about bdsm. Write what you Really know about, please.

Slave Play
East Village
Ambitious, Disappointing

See it if Opening scene is hot, weird and quirky in a good way. Then it just went downhill. The play feels very pretentious to me overall.

Don't see it if Two hours without intermission. Male nudity, simulated sex and racial profiling.

The Ferryman (NYC)
Midtown W
Great play that needs much after-thoughts

See it if To be honest, I can't say my expectation is met with all the hype, but it could just be due to my lack of understanding of the greater

Don't see it if background. I did a lot of research after the show and understood better, but still can't fully get the last scene. Anyway, acting is great.

85
Delicate / intricate human emotions

See it if The play was written over 35 years ago, yet it is still as raw and relevant as ever. Casting is great, so is the acting.

Don't see it if On a shallow note, male lead's physique fits the role perfectly. Btw, I saw a 7 year-old girl in the audience. What is her mom thinking??

Good songs, weak story

See it if The real hero here are the songs and singing. They are beautiful and well performed. However, the story is weak and the dialogue

Don't see it if uninteresting. Why isn't this presented in a concert form? Those talent could sing more songs.

Delightful, Entertaining, Great acting

See it if Saw this in DC a while ago and liked it. Acting is great across the board. Don't assume anything simply based on the title of the play.

Don't see it if Just enjoy the ride. I personally don't like the idea of loud music before curtain and unnecessary introduction of two "person-in-charge"

Police Cops
Midtown E
Delightful, Funny, Hilarious

See it if you enjoy silly yet delicious fun. The actors are all adorable. They go all out for your entertainment. At 55 minutes, the play

Don't see it if never pretends to be something it is not. Don't see it if you have issues with constant shirtless scenes. The poster didn't do them justice.

Upper W Side
Absorbing, Great acting, Thought-provoking

See it if The playwright is no doubt one of the most talented writers nowadays. Have seen almost all his work and all are impressive. Very smart play.

Don't see it if I thought the scene transition is weird. also the really loud humming noise is not necessary, as we can adjust mood ourselves. but I divert.

Intelligent, absorbing, ambitious

See it if The playwright is certainly clever. Talking about current affairs without being in your face. First preview, great acting from most.

Don't see it if could use a bit cutting since right now it closes in 3 hours. But since dialogue is very engaging, you won't get bored

Rancho Viejo

Slow, long, confusing

See it if clearly this play is an opinion divider. Most reviews here for the first preview are good. so I went and got disappointed.

Don't see it if during one scene the actors talked about art - I guess you can call this play a weird art. Some people get "the message", others don't.

Don't see it if you don't like sung through musical.
