Disappointing, Cliched, Grating, Tasteless, Excruciating

See it if you are a teenager 16 and under who feels like you don't belong among your peers or you're a big fan of George Salazar.

Don't see it if you want characters to root for/a show where all of the leads can sing, or you are put off by production design that overpowers its material

82
Avenue Q (NYC)
Midtown W
Relevant, Entertaining, Clever, Raunchy, Hilarious

See it if you like off-color comedy and are willing to buy in to a show about puppets.

Don't see it if you hate puppets or do not like raunchy humor.

95
Riveting, Magical, Great staging, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if you ever loved Harry Potter & want a chance to return to the world you've missed, or you want to see incredible feats of technical theatre.

Don't see it if you're more interested in realism or bare-bones productions that do not heavily utilize effects.

99
During previews
Epic, Masterful, Resonant, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if you want to see something otherworldly yet remarkably human & remember how special it can be to share a story with a theatre full of people.

Don't see it if you don't like stories where you already know the ending.

85
Refreshing, Entertaining, Hilarious, Resonant, Clever

See it if you like when comedy is honest, even if that truth may be difficult to admit.

Don't see it if you are a parent who has never once doubted yourself or you don't like to laugh. (Everyone should see this.)

92
Alice By Heart
Midtown W
Transportive, Beautiful, Resonant, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you believe in new generations finding new meaning in the stories we know by heart.

Don't see it if you don't know or like Alice in Wonderland, or you don't want to see a show that is likely not finished.

67
Amateur writing, Poor structure, Great acting, Indulgent, Entertaining

See it if you want to have a good time and you love Cher. This show is in no doubt a love letter to Cher, albeit not the most eloquent one.

Don't see it if you want a show with a consistent tone, structure, or style. Like its muse, this show is a bit all over the place.

95
The Ferryman (NYC)
Midtown W
Masterful, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Captivating, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy shows that transport you fully to a time that is both different than and eerily similar to your own

Don't see it if you don't like plays (especially with accents)! This is three hours of thought-provoking drama, and it keeps you thinking every moment.

95
Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Enchanting, Epic, Must see, Relevant

See it if you somehow haven't yet, you want to get more out of the musical you saw as a child, or you want to be awed by Jessica Vosk's talent.

Don't see it if you're the type of person who dislikes things just to be a contrarian.

90
Witty, Resonant, Realistic, Thought-provoking, Great acting

See it if you want to see great actors take on challenging material and strike a perfect balance between humorous and heartwrenching.

Don't see it if you think watching someone descend into dementia will hit too close to home.

65
Mother of the Maid
East Village
Cliched, Disappointing, Unoriginal, Slow, Emotional

See it if you like stories about the families of heroes or just you want to see Glenn Close give a powerful performance in an intimate setting.

Don't see it if you want to hear a new story or if you want consistent acting choices across the board.

70
King Kong (NYC)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Epic, Impressive, Lackluster writing, Entertaining

See it if you enjoy great feats of technical theatre. The puppet is truly impressive and the work of the artists behind it paid off.

Don't see it if you go to shows for the writing or you don't like shows that rely too heavily on one aspect of the production to carry the show.

88
Nostalgic, Relevant, Enchanting, Hilarious, Great singing

See it if you have been through high school as girl, you love the movie, or you're looking for a fun night at the theatre.

Don't see it if you don't like pop scores or you're interested in a show that takes itself very seriously.

72
BLKS
Midtown W
Slice of life, Slow, Fresh, Funny, Raunchy

See it if you wanted to like "Girls" but couldn't relate to the characters or didn't see yourself represented.

Don't see it if you don't like shows where the emphasis is more on character than on plot.

97
Thought-provoking, Relevant, Resonant, Profound, Must see

See it if you are a woman in the United States of America or a person who cares about women.

Don't see it if you don't like to hear your history challenged or have your rose-colored perception of reality altered.

68
Ambitious, Emotionless, Inconsistent, Rushed, Disappointing

See it if you are a fan of Fiasco Theater, as this seems to be very much on-brand for their stripped down work.

Don't see it if you are familiar with Merrily and the poignancy it can carry. The show is rushed and the heart is stripped away by actors who don't connect.

75
Superhero
Midtown W
Great staging, Underdeveloped, Resonant, Cliched, Ambitious

See it if you like seeing new work or you're a big fan of comics and superheroes.

Don't see it if you didn't like the themes of Dear Evan Hansen, or you don't like new works that are still clunky.

93
Must see, Profound, Resonant, Great acting, Clever

See it if you have ever felt alone. The show's lyrics say it all, and it stands up as a show for those who need to connect.

Don't see it if you don't like material that hits too close to home. There is a little bit of Evan Hansen in all of us, and that can be hard to hear.

85
Network (NYC)
Midtown W
Inconsistent, Engaging, Innovative, Great acting, Great staging

See it if you want to be in the room while Bryan Cranston gives yet another masterclass in acting, this time on stage and screen simultaneously.

Don't see it if you don't want to be a part of the action. One way or another, this play will suck you in.

93
Clever, Hilarious, Relevant, Shrewd, Entertaining

See it if you enjoy comedy that doesn't hold back, clever writing, quick wit, and jokes that flash by in the details. Or you love a good tap number!

Don't see it if you don't enjoy humor that criticizes religion or you have an aversion to crude language.

75
Aladdin (Broadway)
Midtown W
Delightful, Enchanting, Funny, Entertaining, Magical

See it if you're a fan of the movie Aladdin and the Disney musicals or you want to see impressive feats of technical theatre.

Don't see it if you want an Aladdin that sounds exactly like the movie soundtrack or you don't want an audience full of kids.

98
Absorbing, Profound, Resonant, Powerful, Exquisite

See it if you want a show that revels in the small details & makes you so much a part of the world it has created that it breaks your heart to leave.

Don't see it if you don't like to get emotional at the theatre.

95
Ordinary Days
Midtown W
Delightful, Resonant, Nostalgic, Funny, Poignant

See it if you love musicals about New York and you want to fall back in love with the city and all that it means.

Don't see it if you don't like sung-through shows or prefer larger ensemble spectacles.

85
shadowplay
Soho/Tribeca
Ambitious, Clever, Entertaining, Resonant, Slow

See it if you like thoughtful theatre that keeps you wondering where it will go next or if you like the darker side of childhood favorites.

Don't see it if you like shows that get into the action right away- the beginning moves a bit slowly.
