Ambitious, Clever, Quirky, Slow, Great staging

See it if you are a fan of Alice & unusual unique adaptations. Ingenious dance & movement, good story line, some lovely ballads. Solid performances!

Don't see it if This production has many elements that work, yet in the center the story becomes a snooze. Sections of the un-melodic music become painful.

Also SPOILER ALERT: This show is a work in progress at this stage. From 5 m... Read more Read less

Excruciating, Great acting, Disappointing, Confusing, Banal

See it if enjoy the actors who all give good to great performances. There are moments of absurd lunacy that will have you laughing. But then they stop

Don't see it if Odd senseless message-less plays. the first 30 minutes amuse,then it just gets weird. The final visual gag was more shocking than funny.

Ambitious, Great acting, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Funny

See it if Starts off funny then heavy handed. Switches to full blown drama &a tad melodramatic. The performances are fantastic & touching. Good story.

Don't see it if It's a gay love story but is universal with the"incident". Sometimes cliched, & the dialogue is more clever than real. Worthwhile & moving.

Slow, Quirky, Excruciating, Disappointing, Dated

See it if you want to get out of the rain. Then again rain is more pleasant.

Don't see it if Absolute snooze. Dated show that needs a strong director and a talented cast. This production has neither. The play CAN be funny, not here.

Romantic, Slow, Quirky, Cabaret-ish unique

See it if interested in a slice of gay history mostly overlooked-the 60s before Stonewall. Great performance by Jeremy Cohen. Music-good, book-lost.

Don't see it if Average directing by Friedman of a Cabaret style show. Sam Bolen is okay if not sometimes manic. The plot needs help as do the jokes.

Also Overall entertaining but could have been more than just a Porter light... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Great staging

See it if u like fairy tales with edge. Exceptional staging, set design and directing. Perfectly performed. Creative and truly beautiful. Energetic.

Don't see it if sad stories, fables or island flavored music. This is great for adults and kids. The story line is harsh at times, yet this show soars. C it

Ambitious, Excruciating, Slow, Indulgent, Romantic

See it if r gay, like Brits and appreciate a romantic love story that's dysfunctional. Act 1 is near unbearable. Yet Act 2 works very well.

Don't see it if Staging, structure need help. Actors NEED mics since they speak way too low and the accents prove difficult. Act 2 grounds the story FINALLY

Clever, Great acting, Great staging, Intelligent, Must see

See it if u luv immersive theater, a terrifying, funny journey into the path of a serial killer. Brilliant. Acting-fantastic. Setting-perfect.

Don't see it if horror, blood and potentially being a prop for the actors. Otherwise don't miss this ingenious revival loaded with unforgettable performers

Funny, Great acting, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Ambitious

See it if Harmon's plays are more about expressing thoughts/ideas and less action. This gay play presents an argument for and against beauty. Funny.

Don't see it if When both sides of the coin r presented, there is no final likable outcome. The veiled C. Klein story is filled with unlikable characters.

79
Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Romantic, Fluffy

See it if u like Blazing Saddles. The villain is a direct ancestor of Harvey Korman. A Shakespearean campy update with original music. Funny and light

Don't see it if looking for anything beyond a well done college production. Enjoyable performances by the cast but this fluff has no bite. Good, forgettable

Great acting, Riveting, Resonant, Epic, Masterful

See it if want to see the next Denzel Washington Tony award winning performance. After a slow start, Denzel appears and the show ignites. Must see!

Don't see it if Hate O'Neill. Long but brilliant & anchored by a star performance. The audio was the only issue. Sound seemed muffled b4 Denzel appeared.

Intense, Overrated, Slow, Great writing, Ambitious

See it if only you have never seen b4. Heavy issues & non stop dialogue = a 8 hr commitment. Epic in scale and message, Pt 2 plays better than 1.

Don't see it if you hate long slow productions. Nathan is being Nathan, not Cohen. Garfield is attempting fem/gay. Lee Pace is perfectly subtle & nude.

Also The pacing of the show in Part 1 is off. The dialogue needs to flow fa... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Exquisite, Great singing, Great acting, Intelligent

See it if enjoy Mark Rylance as a performer. Baroque sets & elaborate costumes make this a visual feast for the eyes. Ieysten Davies sings beautifully

Don't see it if a slow plot line with no real dramatic flare ups will bore you. The true story is fascinating but there are no fireworks on stage. Enjoyable

Also though not riveting.

Funny, Great singing, Banal, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if like Rock of Ages(a much better show) or enjoyed the dreadful 90s movie adaptation of a brilliant play. Dangerous Liaisons. Watch that first

Don't see it if you hate 90s music. Good singers in an adaption of a hard to like movie. Bitchy lines, arrogant entitled characters with no depth.

Also The show entertains in spite of it's source. A mindless somewhat fun d... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Funny, Great writing, Intelligent, Profound

See it if remember when gay rights did not exist. Brilliant writing heightens this well done revival and good performances. The original-brilliant

Don't see it if Harvey's shadow hangs over this show and NO ONE can live up to it. The cast is good though the actor playing David appears way too old.

Entertaining, Ambitious, Great acting, Romantic, Great staging

See it if you are a fan of the movie the music. Amazing projections, fantastic costumes and rich performances bring to life a tale of finding oneself

Don't see it if Sometimes slow, & songs are stretched out to long. More based on the movie plot then the cartoon. It's core audience-teens-could get bored

79
Ambitious, Intelligent, Great acting, Great staging, Must see

See it if You Love Lupone and Ebersole who give masterful performances. Intelligent look at the issues women struggled through to succeed in business

Don't see it if don't like a woman's empowerment story. Sometimes slow but the performances keep you riveted. Amazing set and costumes.

Delightful, Enchanting, Great acting, Great staging, Funny

See it if You LOVE Midler or Murphy. Pierce is terrific. Perfect revival, like a sugary dessert on a piece of china. Entire cast shines. SEE

Don't see it if you hate old fashion musicals or Hate Bette. Otherwise this show is marvelous.

Great acting, Confusing, Banal, Disappointing, Slow

See it if The movie-great, the book,- thought provoking and intense. This version-has incredible performance and stunning male bodies.

Don't see it if If you loved the movie or book. The violence and messages are lost as Alex's world has gone gay. The balletic dance dilutes the edge/tension

Overrated, Intelligent, Indulgent, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if Lear is a mountain of a play and the performers are all good,some excellent. The inclusionary aspects are distracting. At times beautiful.

Don't see it if Jackson's interpretation is unique but not the strongest of Lears. 3 women is mens roles, the music(lovely), and the deaf element-gimmicky.

Also I expected more. After a beautiful beginning, some good and bad things... Read more Read less

Enchanting, Great singing, Great staging, Entertaining, Great acting

See it if Costumes, sets,Love-aly performances. Much to admire &a classic old gem.The music is filled with standards, & it has its glorious moments

Don't see it if the misogyny plot line can be a challenge in this day and age. The beginning scenes lack the comedic sparkle they need. Leads are all good.

See it if you love Kong. He is worth every penny. The ingenuity in creating this life like beast-FANTASTIC. Chorus-terrific, set N lightening-great.

Don't see it if Music is good, lyrics bad. The book is okay but wanders. Characters r mostly unlikable. But this is about KONG and he is brilliant.

Also Kong is the most expressive character in the show. Lead actress Pits i... Read more Read less

See it if Thrilling powerful drama is your cup of Irish tea. Brilliant acting from all ages and performers. Great writing. A Must See for the season.

Don't see it if Long plays whose plot unfolds gently and takes its time revealing the characters.Otherwise don't miss this fantastic funny devastating play

Also Everything works-the directing, acting, set and especially the words.

98
Resonant, Must see, Intelligent, Great staging, Great acting

See it if u like brilliant directing, an up lifting story that occurred due to a tragedy and an emotional, funny, touching musical that restores hope

Don't see it if 911 is still too much of a wound. Otherwise this show re invigorates the power of the human connection and what it is to be kind & helpful

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Fluffy, Great acting

See it if u like Lit. Shop of Horrors. Cute and clever with catchy music and great performances. Fluffy but fun and energetic. Staging/set is spot-on

Don't see it if hate sci fi or high school musicals. Over the top plot examines what everyone goes through in HS not matter what group u belonged in. FUN!

See it if u adore McTeer! And if u don't, u will. Fantastic performance, well written, insightful. Cast-superb,set, costumes, lighting. Brillaint

Don't see it if u r not a knowledgable theater lover/hate Shakespeare. Also while it is terrific, it's ending disappoints. But getting there is marvelous.

Enchanting, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful, Raunchy

See it if u like a nearly all nude male cast in an all dance show. Act 1's music is taped,2 has vocals. Clever adult version of a child's story. Sexy.

Don't see it if Homophobic. If Company XIV is your cup of tea, you will enjoy this short night out. Terrific cast, creative dancing. Good and erotic.

Delightful, Entertaining, Ambitious, Funny, Quirky

See it if love the GoGos music. Arcadia is a complicated story, made super gay and over the top. Ms. Milligan & Mr. Durand are fantastic. Enjoyable!

Don't see it if confusing plots confuse and gay themed plots offend. The costumes, sets and performances make this HIGHLY entertaining. Lags occasionally.

69
Romantic, Quirky, Fluffy, Funny, Cliched

See it if Like Jimmy Buffet. Fun, silly, no brainer. Light fare with good performances-not memorable but leaves you with a smile.

Don't see it if need classic theater. More like a cruise ship show complete with a rowdy, fan base. You know what you're in for and it delivers.

Funny, Great acting, Great writing, Must see, Resonant

See it if you enjoy powerful acting. Jackson, Metcalf, & Pill are marvelous & enrich beautifully written parts. Sad yet funny. Its about the words.

Don't see it if This is a memory play examining the changes we all travel on life's journey. Therefore it examines those bumps we sometimes wish to forget.

85
Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging, Generationally specific, Satisfying

See it if Were raised in the 50s, 60s, or 70s. Carole King wrote hundreds of songs before Tapestry and the show highlights the hits. Fun and hummable

Don't see it if hate American Idol or the Voice. This showcases new voices singing old classic pop tunes and gives you the emotional baggage behind them.

80
Clever, Delightful, Funny, Entertaining, Hilarious

See it if love John Leguizamo's Brilliant one man shows. This is a love letter to Latinos from both Americas. Joyous, fun and enlightening. Bravo!

Don't see it if a racist, a Trump fan, or particular about historical facts. The show highlights the making of the Latino people and their accomplishments!

Raunchy, Must see, Great singing, Exquisite, Delightful

See it if you love Burlesque, a sexy update of THE NUTCRACKER. Brilliant, provocative, and one of the best versions of Rouge. Indulge your sensuality

Don't see it if don't like drag or over the top sexuality. A very naughty Cirque like show with plenty of bare bottoms and tantalizing apparel. Amazing!!!

Confusing, Disappointing, Excruciating, Fluffy, Slow

See it if you grew up with the Cartoon and are familiar/love its characters. It's colorful set and the ability of the performers are pluses.

Don't see it if you are not aware of the characters. Dumb plot, no characterization, music bops from one style to another. Left after Act 1

79
Edgy, Indulgent, Raunchy, Slow, Great staging

See it if you like full frontal male nudity with a suggestive storyline. One superb performance and an interesting look at gay 3 way relationships.

Don't see it if you are uncomfortable with sex talk and nudity. This is a gay play with a very specific audience. Dialogue can be long winded and trite.

72
For a previous production
Funny, Great staging, Fluffy, Insipid, Quirky

See it if like Carol Burnett slapstick style skits. Amusing and set is clever. Performers do what they can with thin material.

Don't see it if you don't like British farce. A pale imitation of a brilliant show NOISES OFF. You'll laugh but repeatedly look at your watch. Fluff.

92
Great acting, Great singing, Must see, Riveting, Thought-provoking

See it if The music is a doorway into the characters souls. Magnificent, must see performance by Platt. Emotional, funny and will linger with you. SEE

Don't see it if Plot is an improved After school special type material. Stereotypical character types BUT they are well drawn. Still wonderfully theater.
