This Beautiful Future
West Village
Ambitious, Nostalgic, Comedic satire, Great acting, Entertaining
September 22nd, 2022

See it if Can appreciate comedic satire- ironic, light-hearted perspective w/in story set in serious historical context like movie, Life is Beautiful.

Don't see it if You'll be confused about flashbacks/forwards of time in different scenes. Dislike comedic satire or making a serious time/Hitler light.

Also When show ended, I thought story wasn't much to hold onto but days and... Read more Read less

Campy, Fun, Cliched, Entertaining, Funny
September 22nd, 2022

See it if Fun, good time watching masterful Celine Dion impersonator re-tell Titanic movie story weaving her own songs into storyline; great singers.

Don't see it if You don't like campy satires or parodies of Celine Dion, her songs, the Titanic story or having fun with the absurd.

El Quijote
Confusing, Hilarious, Entertaining, Enchanting, Delightful
September 19th, 2022

See it if You like Don Quixote, the novel, and classic literary storytelling. You can keep up w very fast Spanish speaking. Good acting, funny.

Don't see it if You can’t keep up w fast Spanish speaking. Subtitle translation boxes available but sometimes malfunction; hard to both read and watch.

Also I can understand Spanish pretty well but here it is spoken very fast a... Read more Read less

Confused genre, Ambitious, Epic, Great staging, Great singing
September 18th, 2022

See it if You love beautiful sets, costumes, singing transporting you to a specific time and place w a story more true to original novel.

Don't see it if You want a story about Quasimodo or a book that knows what genre it is working in- Was this an opera? A musical? Why no songs for Quasi?

Also Some excellent opera singers in this production which they should capi... Read more Read less

East Village
Thought-provoking, Adventurous, Enchanting, Clever, Great writing
September 18th, 2022

See it if You want a profound, thought-provoking commentary on the American dream & pursuit of a better life. Masterful writing and acting.

Don't see it if Don’t want to think about larger concepts, issues, or deep desires the dramatic action brings forth; only want light entertainment.

Also Delightful use of staging and technology references for this hero’s ta... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Intelligent, Great writing, Great acting, Absorbing
September 14th, 2022

See it if You want to be immersed in a dramatic time period of intrigue and suspense, a script that surprises, entertains and challenges you a little.

Don't see it if Longer stretches of dialogue without many scene changes or action puts you to sleep, or if you think US foreign policy does no wrong.

East Village
Interesting look at a situation in time, Historical figures and period immersion piece
September 6th, 2022

See it if You like to immerse yourself in a specific time period and be a private witness to the conversations and action of the time and characters.

Don't see it if You want a big production and a big, satisfying story and ending.

Slow, Great acting, Entertaining, Dated
September 1st, 2022

See it if You like tradition in musicals, hummable tunes, throwback to old, slower ways of storytelling, a version that sticks to the original book.

Don't see it if You want an updated, refreshed, or reimagined version of this musical.

Also Hugh Jackman, Sutton Foster, and the other Tony award/nominated actors... Read more Read less

Quirky, Thought-provoking, Overrated, Ambitious
August 31st, 2022

See it if You feel rewarded experiencing ambitious ideas and writing in a show. You want to see why this won 2 Tonys and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Don't see it if You like memorable, lyrical tunes. You sigh at hearing graphic sexual remarks. You don't want to relate to a gay black man's experience.

Entertaining, Enchanting, Great writing, Masterful, Great acting
August 31st, 2022

See it if You enjoy watching a masterful storyteller bring a story and characters to life before your eyes and want to feel the wonder of a kid again.

Don't see it if Your audio attention span is limited and you dislike one man shows with no staging. Enjoyable for both adults and kids w/ long attention.

Los Otros

Intelligent, Resonant, Delightful, Great acting, Great singing
August 30th, 2022

See it if You want beautiful singing, well written songs, emotive acting, smart storytelling. This truly has it all-talented performers, writers!

Don't see it if You want a highly staged production. This show has power simply through the talent of the performers and writing.

Absorbing, Clever, Relevant, Must see, Masterful
August 24th, 2022

See it if You love a well put together show-writing, singing, choreography, music-all completely spot on and engaging. A lot of joy balances the sad.

Don't see it if You have a hard time understanding accents or you can’t appreciate people from different lands. There’s really not a good reason not to see.

Time/place travel, Great writing, Romantic, Clever, Absorbing
August 24th, 2022

See it if You enjoy tales of romance, self-development through travel, connections to historical artists, reflection. Moving, cohesive.

Don't see it if You’re uncomfortable with watching LGBTQ romance or intimate touching on stage, tales of refugees, or want an ending tied up w/ a bow.

That Physics Show
Midtown W
Educational, Interesting, Relevant, Clever
August 16th, 2022

See it if You like science experiments, want an educational experience w/ real, visual examples of physics principles and properties. Good for kids.

Don't see it if You just want to sit back and be purely entertained. Show requires some listening, thinking with demonstration of experiments. Family appeal

August 14th, 2022

See it if You love the idea of being hypnotized and part of the improv show yourself or you enjoy watching other people from the audience do so.

Don't see it if You are bored by or a non-believer of hypnosis. My friend didn’t understand how hypnosis worked but enjoyed half of show w/ improv.

Must see, Absorbing, Exquisite, Great acting, Great singing
July 7th, 2022

See it if You want to see a true Broadway gem with actors and singers at their best.

Don't see it if You like lots of colorful scenery and settings to place the action. The actors use their incredible talents to draw you into the show.
