Entertaining, Great writing, Funny

See it if you like stand up comedy that elevates the form a bit. alex is hilarious and the show was a pleasant surprise for me!

Don't see it if you aren't interested in NYC Jewish humor. there's a lot of it!

Indulgent, Ambitious, Overrated

See it if you want to see what the fuss is about. it wants to be profound, so i applaud them for trying.

Don't see it if you want to stay awake during a show. the second act is terminally boring.

Clyde's (Broadway)

Cliched, Overrated, Disappointing

See it if you like Uzo Aduba and want to feel like you're in a sitcom audience. why is the cast always yelling their lines??

Don't see it if you want a coherent plot. i thought this was a complete misfire but the audience was eating it up (pun intended).

Also i remain completely baffled by this show, and not in a good way. what ... Read more Read less

Quirky, Great singing, Funny

See it if you want to support new musicals, a Tesori score, and the amazingly talented Victoria Clark.

Don't see it if you can't handle foul language (there's plenty!) or a semi-lighthearted glimpse into a very rare and serious disease.

Company (Broadway)
Midtown W
Refreshing, Great staging, Funny, Clever

See it if you want to watch a successfully fresh take on a Sondheim classic. This cast is stellar and the staging is super fun!

Don't see it if you are a purist and can't fathom gender-swapped roles

Ambitious, Intense, Relevant

See it if you are interested in an elevated take on urgent, important real-life issues. Also see it if you like great set, lighting, and sound design!

Don't see it if you are easily disturbed by heavy subject matter, some of which is pretty clearly acted out on stage.

Also I think there's a great play in here somewhere, but the current versio... Read more Read less

Great acting, Relevant, Funny

See it if you want to see LaChanze and the rest of the company shine bright in a play from the 50s that is (unfortunately) still incredibly relevant.

Don't see it if confronting racial stereotypes makes you uncomfortable

Clunky, Awful, Excruciating

See it if There is absolutely ZERO reason to see this whatsoever. None. Zilch. Do not do it. I left at intermission, along with half the audience.

Don't see it if you value your time whatsoever. Don't even go if you have a free ticket. It's that bad.

Also I am truly confounded as to how this was OK'd to be made. Does NOT nee... Read more Read less

Dana H. (Broadway)
Midtown W
Masterful, Harrowing, Captivating, Intense

See it if you want to see Deirdre O'Connell deliver a masterful, harrowing performance without uttering a single word.

Don't see it if you cannot handle intense themes such as murder and rape.

Also The entire audience was on the edge of their seats, captivated by Deir... Read more Read less

Relevant, Intense, Ambitious

See it if you are in the mood for a smaller-scale show with an interesting premise. Emily Davis' performance is excellent.

Don't see it if you are looking for grandeur or spectacle. Not quite sure this needs to be in a Broadway-sized theater.

Also I really wish the Lyceum showed Is This A Room and Dana H as one 2-hou... Read more Read less

Must see, Riveting, Masterful, Great acting

See it if you want to watch a brilliantly produced play performed by sensational actors. The 3.5 hours FLEW by, and everyone around me raved afterward

Don't see it if you prefer fictional stories, I guess? I really think this is must-see theater.

Also I strongly implore everyone to see this before it closes in January. A... Read more Read less

Intense, Resonant, Relevant

See it if you'd like to support a smaller production. The acting is inconsistent but generally good, and the staging was clever.

Don't see it if you are looking for a high production value or a lighthearted plot.

Also The actors all made a valiant effort at playing multiple roles, but so... Read more Read less

Great acting, Great singing, Relevant

See it if you want to see a masterful performance by Sharon D. Clarke bolstered by an extremely talented cast.

Don't see it if you do not like sung-through shows, or shows that tackle sensitive topics.

Entertaining, Funny, Delightful

See it if you want to see something lighthearted and fun with a small but mighty cast. The audience definitely had a good time!

Don't see it if you are looking for a show with substance. Some jokes also fall flat.

Riveting, Intense, Great singing, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if you are interested in nontraditional musicals. This is really a play with musical asides. Extremely talented cast and creative direction.

Don't see it if you are looking for something happy, comfortable, or are looking for a traditional musical.

Thought-provoking, Intense, Ambitious

See it if you are a fan of Lili Taylor, or one-person shows. She literally warns the audience that there are no other actors and that it's 90 minutes.

Don't see it if you want something with lots of action or excitement. It's a slow burn, but I was hooked by the end.

Cliched, Dated, Disappointing

See it if you like the movie or want to see a specific actor in the show.

Don't see it if you are looking for a memorable production. I left this show and couldn't hum a single bar of music...it's truly forgettable

Entertaining, Ambitious, Epic, Great staging

See it if you want a true Broadway spectacle. There's a reason this show has been around for so long!

Don't see it if you are looking for something new. Everyone is familiar with the plot at this point.

Great singing, Profound, Great staging, Enchanting

See it if you are looking for something that plays with the concept of what a musical should be, to great success. A mesmerizing score.
