Refreshing, Relevant, Resonant, Riveting, Thought-provoking

See it if You want to challenge yourself and the stereotypes you have been surrounded by. You won’t realize which ones you carry unless you face them.

Don't see it if You have issues with people who probably go to Comic-con.

Ambitious, Confusing, Entertaining, Edgy, Great singing

See it if You like shows that bring the audience into the performance and are “open-ended” in their approach and intention. It’s non-traditional.

Don't see it if You need linear and blatant story-lines. If you loved the “original” Broadway or film production and want a remake, not for you.

Also This is not just an update, it’s an interpretation and people who don’... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Entertaining, Great singing, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if You want an experience, to feel like you were transported to another time. The show spans many decades and the music/dancing, AMAZING!!!

Don't see it if You think theatre is a one-way street and the audience is supposed to be sitting quietly the whole time. It is nearly impossible to do that.

Also You will find yourself singing/humming/clapping along if you are a hum... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Enchanting, Must see, Riveting, Absorbing

See it if LOVE TAP & AMAZING VOICES! The Company took the show from 90 to 100! “Too Darn Hot” stole my heart and Kelli O’Hara’s voice gave me chills.

Don't see it if You’re a moron. You have to be an exceptional person to not at least like the show much less love it. I guess misogynists will hate it?

Clever, Great singing, Great staging, Great writing, Resonant

See it if You work with adolescents or raising them so you get a great perspective of their life/world. The adaptation is refreshing but keeps true.

Don't see it if You need it to be exactly the same as the movie. Or if you’re homophobic.

Great staging, Relevant, Great singing, Entertaining, Thought-provoking

See it if You love non-traditional characters that push the boundaries of societal norms and characters that are unapologetically themselves.

Don't see it if You only like traditionally staged shows as the theatre set up comes off center stage.

Edgy, Great acting, Great singing, Riveting, Great writing

See it if You want to be inspired about LIFE! I cried several times throughout the show in awe of the perseverance of this woman. Cast is amazing.

Don't see it if You are a misogynist. Also, there are a LOT of bright lights on the stage for certain scenes, FYI if that will be am issue.

Intense, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if You are experiencing or anticipating Alzheimer’s, yourself or taking care of a loved one. Provides the POVs of both caretaker and patient.

Don't see it if You aren’t ready to reflect on an experience lived or an impending situation. The empathy and intensity is tangible.

Delightful, Great acting, Great singing, Masterful, Romantic

See it if You enjoy campy shows with an adorable, forgiving, meddlesome character. Great New York history backdrop, BETTE MIDLER, The Company is OMG!

Don't see it if You don’t like strong female leads and “fourth dimension” dialogue (cast will narrarate to the audience).

Extreme Whether
East Village
Relevant, Quirky, Ambitious

See it if You want to learn more about climate change issues and what threat scientists face for speaking about truth and facts.

Don't see it if You are in the mood for an expertly staged production that will take away to a dreamland.

Clever, Entertaining, Great staging, Refreshing, Relevant

See it if You like parent reflections of how they mess up raising their kids and how their own parents messed up raising them; & Latin Am. History!!!

Don't see it if You don’t like explicit mentions of sex or being reminded or white privilege which you would clearly need if you don’t like the reminders.

Swordplay
Midtown W
Thought-provoking, Refreshing, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy ANY behind the scenes work on stage. The title does not do this workshop justice! You will truly know the how and why of staging.

Don't see it if You are not going to give it 110%. Don’t hold back! You will learn a lot by being a wallflower, but it’s more fun if you are a sunflower 🌻

The Mushroom Cure
East Village
Intense, Thought-provoking, Ambitious

See it if You like one-person show and are interested in understanding how mental illness (OCD) impacts a person and those around them.

Don't see it if You don’t like one-person shows.

Also “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.” Given the write up and poster, I w... Read more Read less

See it if You like Shakespeare and plays about gender roles.

Don't see it if You have a problem with non-traditional gender roles.

Refreshing, Resonant, Relevant, Absorbing, Profound

See it if You are inspired by the human condition to make lemonade of lemons and create community.

Don't see it if You need big showy numbers and lots of scenery. Simplicity is the core of the show and what allows one to appreciate the story.

Allegiance
Midtown W
Great writing, Intelligent, Original, Profound, Relevant

See it if You enjoy stories about the indelible human spirit, enjoy history & present day politics, & believe in social justice.

Don't see it if you must have a gloriously happy ending. Real life doesn't end that way. This one is bitter sweet

Out of Water
Chelsea
Romantic, Quirky, Great singing, Confusing, Delightful

See it if You have an ear for translation. The script was good from Portuguese to English but there were others that could have been better.

Don't see it if You don’t fall for “Magical Realism”

88
Thought-provoking, Resonant, Relevant, Profound, Intense

See it if You feel hopeless by what is happening in society right now. It validates thoughts/feelings but also keeps hope alive.

Don't see it if You are a misogynist. Also if you are still dealing with DV issues, this could be a trigger. And, if you don’t enjoy one person narratives.

Also I saw the show off-Broadway as well and could see how it was “brushed-... Read more Read less

Playing Hot
Midtown W
Resonant, Quirky, Clever, Ambitious, Entertaining

See it if You are okay with unorthodox staging, you like live music and interactive theatre and enjoying learning.

Don't see it if You are unable to “give yourself” to a performance; you will be standing, dancing; jostled and if you’re short sometimes you won’t see.

90
Ambitious, Enchanting, Great staging, Intense, Epic

See it if You lived the series and READ IT! If you didn’t then maybe this will make you want to. It is a full-immersion show and you will be pulled in

Don't see it if You can't transcend into magical realism. And if you’re a bully, you should be forced to watch it while gagged.

89
Must see, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Resonant, Refreshing

See it if You want a great and new perspective of the US Constitution and also of a time and place that is fading in our country (may not be negative)

Don't see it if You don’t like one person shows.

90
Edgy, Great writing, Intense, Profound, Thought-provoking

See it if NOTHING was left out. Everything from couples arguing to how to raise a child to race issues in and out of a community, no one is perfect.

Don't see it if You can’t handle real life blatantly happening in your face and you don’t like feeling bad or angry.

80
Clever, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if You believe Love is Love, modernized 16th century prose and 80s music. Cast has amazing voices!!!

Don't see it if You don’t believe that Love is Love or like modernized adaptations that maintain classical elements.

88
Entertaining, Intelligent, Relevant, Educational, Interdisciplinary

See it if You enjoy Art History, learning about societal evolution and connections.

Don't see it if You don’t like walking or crowds. Also if you are uncomfortable with hard truths and changes in societal institutions.

Exquisite, Great singing, Great staging, Masterful, Profound

See it if You want amazing singing, can withstand a story about tolerating/ upholding an abusive relationship from both perspectives, a time piece.

Don't see it if You have strong issues with abusive relationships; can’t sit for longer than an hour.

79
Ambitious, Intense, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Time-piece

See it if you like one-man shows, loved the 80s, have a stake in gang culture or want to understand the people in it, see the humanity in urban life.

Don't see it if you don't like one man shows, don't like 80s house music or culture, are still overcoming the loss of a loved one and are emotionally raw.

Also The music is AWESOME!!! It dovetails nicely to bring another dimension... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Resonant, Refreshing

See it if Conversations about race and rape make you uncomfortable, it’s the only way to go to the next level.

Don't see it if You want to stay racist and mysogenistic.

90
Clever, Entertaining, Refreshing

See it if You are open-minded about religious beliefs, cultures & societies different from your own. So many teachable moments left w/ loose ends...

Don't see it if You are easily offended, abide strictly by institutional laws and easily take in stereotypes without question.

90
Fun, challenging, engaging

See it if You always wanted to learn a piece of classic Broadway dance ensemble and feel what group work is like.

Don't see it if You get embarrassed easily when making mistakes; you will make a lot of them while you are having fun and get a great workout.

For a previous production
Intelligent, Ambitious, Refreshing, Relevant, Resonant

See it if You are interested in the business side of Broadway and want the back story of the show.

Don't see it if You love "the magic" of Broadway.

Entertaining, Raunchy, Cliched

See it if You want to indulge in some sexism and reflect on a relationship that ended badly.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Ambitious, Great writing, Intelligent, Romantic

See it if You love seeing history come alive, if you love lots of musical genres and if you appreciate politics.

Don't see it if You want history to be exactly the way it was taught to you; in other words, you are not a person who likes change. Stay in your cave.

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if You like making connections from the present to what you see & hear on stage. Songs are wonderful & funny. Saw in Chicago w. Ana Gesyter <3

Don't see it if You want a pretty story with a happy ending. Saw in NYC this year, felt overdone and forced. But sub-story was more relevant than ever...

Also A great piece for female friends of any age.
