Darling Grenadine

Refreshing, Thought-provoking, Great singing, Great staging, Clever

See it if you want an original show w/ minimal sets & actors alone immersing you into a new world that leaves you wondering what that says about ours.

Don't see it if you want large dance numbers, a fun family show, or something light/want to avoid a show that leaves you in deep thought.

Clever, Absorbing, Enchanting, Epic, Refreshing

See it if you want to see original work. After so many movie musical adaptations, Hadestown reminds us what fantastic new shows look like!

Don't see it if you want a classic broadway show or something familiar or safe. This show is anything but that, which is the incredible part about it.

Quirky, Great acting, Great singing, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you enjoy bio musicals! This show I would have never seen had Kara Lindsay not been in it, but truly it caught me by surprise!

Don't see it if you need extravagant stories and songs. It’s very simple and obviously the music has a specific vibe to it, but the simplicity draws you in

Waitress (NYC)
Midtown W
Entertaining, Delightful, Great singing, Quirky

See it if you enjoy movie turned musicals with great music, fun staging, & unexpected silly moments created by a cast just having a good time on stage

Don't see it if you prefer shows with a deep story behind them. Waitress is a fun show that deals with the topic of domestic abuse in a lighter way.

Great writing, Great staging, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Clever

See it if you want a better understanding of our country's history, you want to see an incredibly talented cast, and truly enjoy musical theatre.

Don't see it if you aren't a big fan of musicals (the entire show is music)

Also I appreciate that the large majority of the cast is PoC! It's a huge p... Read more Read less

Great acting, Clever, Edgy, Hilarious, Intense

See it if you’re a fan of dark, rock musicals. The cast takes you deep into the 70s & keeps you invested the entire time! Little Shop meets Heathers!

Don't see it if you’re looking for traditional musical theater, or aren’t open to a twist on the classics. Probably wouldn’t recommend for kids

Relevant, Thought-provoking, Intense, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you want a real story told through such powerful music. The show is overwhelming and gives you a lot to think about, which is the best art.

Don't see it if you’re uncomfortable with conversations around mental health, suicide, etc. It gets deep into a lot of topics some people can’t handle

Resonant, Great writing, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy shows that introduce difficult topics. Watch a group of actresses tell stories that are all too relevant to begin conversations

Don't see it if you are looking for a light hearted, comedic, and/or family oriented show. Or aren’t ready to face this generation’s truth.

Great singing, Great choreography, Absorbing, Enchanting, Surprising

See it if you're interested in predominantly performers of color telling a fun and unpredictable story mainly in song and incredible choreography!

Don't see it if you don't enjoy wonderful, wonderful shows

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Entertaining, Great singing, Great acting, Romantic, Must see

See it if You want to see magic. That's the only way to explain this show. It's magic. And you will cry from happiness.

Don't see it if Happiness isn't your thing.

Aladdin (Broadway)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Enchanting, Entertaining, Romantic, Great choreography

See it if You love Disney musicals, want to experience the culture of this foreign (and kinda fake) land, and love a good, romantic storyline.

Don't see it if Slight changes in the original Aladdin storyline is going to bother you or if you can't deal with a lot of children being in the audience.
