Funny, Absorbing, Quirky, Entertaining, Raunchy

See it if You have strong feelings about Parkinson's disease. Too much talk of sex and not enough talk of his dying wife, I thought.

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

Absorbing, Entertaining, Funny, Great writing, Refreshing

See it if you want an intimate, very funny show one woman show that doesn't feel like an excruciating experience (as one person shows sometimes do).

Don't see it if it gets a little heavy-handed with its message in the 3rd act, so if you don't want a politically correct show, I wouldn't recommend this.

Entertaining, Absorbing, Funny, Intelligent, Educational

See it if you like Baba Brinkman, science, and the brain.

Don't see it if science does not interest you.

Absorbing, Great singing, Intense, Relevant, Resonant

See it if the best immersive Ukrainian folk opera I've ever seen. Too immersive for my taste, but it does carry an important message.

Don't see it if You don't like immersive theater or protest theater.

Great singing, Entertaining, Banal, Quirky, Fluffy

See it if They DO give out free drinks, which is a big plus. It's a steam-punk-esque extravaganza.

Don't see it if You are not prepared for an almost 2 hour opera, dealing with very superficial themes.

Also There was opportunity to dive deeper into darker themes, but the produ... Read more Read less

Fun, Sweet, Over-the-top, Entertaining, Funny

See it if You love traditional musicals. This is reminiscent of many typical musicals, but is funny and sweet. Was very silly, but really enjoyable.

Don't see it if You don't like musicals or laughing about them.

Religious (duh), Great acting, Intelligent, Slow, Thought-provoking

See it if You want a more meaningful, deeper theatrical performance that will probably make you think.

Dead Man's Dinner
East Village
Fun, Light, Fluffy, Entertaining, Quirky

See it if you want a bit of light, fun theater. And you enjoy the apocalyptic craze sweeping the nation.

Don't see it if you're expecting Grey Gardens based on the email from ShowScore. It took me some time to realize that it wasn't Grey Gardens-esque at all.

Fun, Entertaining, Absorbing, Quirky, Thought-provoking

See it if You love Ibsen and Hedda and want to see a more modern adaptation, which is more "fun." (As fun as Hedda Gabbler can be–so not tremendously)

Don't see it if You love Ibsen and couldn't stand to see Hedda altered into a more flippant version.

Slow, Thought-provoking, Disappointing, Intense, Great acting

See it if you want to see a cast of celebrities. And want to see all of Arthur Miller's canon.

Don't see it if I consider myself an Arthur Miller fan, but this play was boring and hard to get through. Relies heavily on star power, but it's not enough.
