Letter to a Man
Brooklyn
Ambitious, Confusing, Dizzying, Enchanting, Indulgent

See it if you want to see Mikhail Baryshnikov on stage - I did! He is absorbing in even the slightest movements. You are a Robert Wilson fan.

Don't see it if You don't like avant-guarde theater. It is not for the timid, easily bored or confused. Sometimes off-putting, but compellingly staged.

The Encounter
Midtown W
Clever, Dizzying, Intense, Great staging, Too long

See it if you want a one of a kind experience. The performance is something I haven't ever seen and the sound engineering is amazing.

Don't see it if you get overwhelmed easily. You are impatient (at 2 hours, no intermission it goes on too long), you want fancy costumes and such

Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging, Great writing, Intelligent

See it if you want to see a well done Shakespeare play. The lead is fantastic, and I don't think I could have found a better version of this text

Antlia Pneumatica

Great acting, Great writing, Great staging, Epic, Dated

See it if you are a shakespeare fan. Probably no better company to see perform these works. Want your culture credit for the year.

See it if you want to marvel at one woman's ability to transform into multiple characters. She is quite astonishing. Highly recommend

Richard II (BAM)
Brooklyn
Great acting, Great writing, Great staging, Intelligent, Slow

Absorbing, Clever, Ambitious, Great acting, Riveting

See it if you are looking for a career high performance for Michael Cerveris. This is smart and engrossing and well acted and intimately staged.

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Delightful, Dizzying, Romantic, Refreshing, Great staging

See it if you are a girl. I do think that this is a more female friendly show - empowering for young girls, fun for women. Truly great songs to love

Don't see it if you are a guy. Unless you are on a date with someone you are trying to appease. The tunes will still be catchy but it's not for you.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Clever, Entertaining, Masterful, Must see

See it if you can possibly find tickets. Beg, borrow, or steal to get in to this show. Can't get there? Buy the cast album, you won't regret it.

Don't see it if you are a cold hearted evil soul who only wants to see old fashioned boring shows by really irrelevant white guys.
