Blood Boundary
Midtown W
Ambitious, Confusing, Relevant, Slow, Excruciating

See it if You're interested in relevant historical events that need to be brought to light and you've got a little more than two hours to kill.

Don't see it if Given our current political climate, you're expecting a relevant, well paced, clearly written piece that will pull you in.

Also Perhaps I needed to see the other parts of the trilogy but Blood Bound... Read more Read less

Cry Havoc!
West Village
Absorbing, Riveting, Masterful

See it if You enjoy a timely, compelling, well drawn, important, solo performance that reels you in mind, body, spirit, and makes you feel.

Don't see it if I can't think of a reason not to see it.

Also Stephan Wolfort is a finely tuned orchestra generously, masterfully, w... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Confusing, Quirky

See it if You enjoy confusing, prop heavy, avant garde theater.

Don't see it if Frenetic, prop heavy puppet pieces aren't your thing.

Entertaining, Slow

See it if You want a nice night out, off the beaten path, in a great theater space.

Don't see it if You love the film. Compressing a richly textured, vibrant film and book into a small and static space just didn't feel right.

Also While the staging is interesting, the production falls a little flat. ... Read more Read less

Blackbird
Midtown W
Great acting, Intense, Riveting, Disturbing, Thought-provoking

See it if You're interested in experiencing difficult subject matter, parsed beautifully by masterful actors, that provides no clear resolution.

Don't see it if You're uncomfortable with pedophilia, gritty dialogue, and adult situations.

Idiot
Soho/Tribeca
Quirky, Confusing, Original, Ambitious, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy performance art employing immersive staging, & live projections. Be ready to become part of the show depending on where you sit.

Don't see it if Spectacle isn't your thing & you don't enjoy having to turn around in your seat to see what's going on (staged in and beyond the round).

The Dork Knight
West Village
Great acting, Great staging, Great writing, Must see, Brilliant storytelling

See it if You enjoy a well spun, brilliantly crafted one man show that delivers a lovingly authentic, personal story through a very clever lens.

Don't see it if I don't have a reason why you shouldn't see it. I'm not big on Batman but I saw it. And it ROCKED. You should just see it. Go SEE it

Also Jason O'Connell is a master at his craft and has surrounded himself wi... Read more Read less

Two Class Acts
Soho/Tribeca
Absorbing, Clever, Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging

See it if You enjoy cleverly staged, small cast, intense, immersive theater pieces. And be sure to see both plays.

Don't see it if You have a problem with brief nudity.

In the Secret Sea
Midtown W
Banal, Slow, Thought-provoking, Great staging

See it if You get a free ticket & are in the mood for a very long, nothing new, Easter Sunday debate about abortion between in-laws.

Don't see it if Cliched, overwritten conflict between spouses and in-laws around the issue of abortion no longer serves your creative spirit.

Don't see it if Puppets and aren't your thing and you don't appreciate blue language and content.

Disappointing, Funny, Slow

See it if You can appreciate interesting staging and have interest in intense mother-daughter conflict.

Don't see it if Dated one-note mother - daughter relationship"screaming and shouting" isn't appealing to you.
