Great singing, Ambitious, Original, Exciting

See it if You want to see a new take on Sweeney Todd. The environmental staging gives new insight into this musical.

Don't see it if You will be upset by some of the songs being cut or shortened.

Also I was unhappy that they cut the song City on Fire, shortened More Hot ... Read more Read less

Cyprus Avenue
East Village
Absorbing, Thought-provoking

See it if You can handle a wrenching play about the psychosis caused by bigotry and the violence it provokes.

Don't see it if You will be too upset by the very disturbing subject matter, which includes on stage violence.

Desperate Measures

Great singing, Silly, Cliched

See it if someone who has a high tolerance for silly.

Don't see it if While the performances were good, the show itself was embarrassing.

Eclipsed
Midtown W
Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Must see, Profound

See it if You want to see a play on a serious subject and is about multi-dimensional people. It's a tragic story, but allows you to laugh at times.

Don't see it if Not for anyone under 15 or so. You have to be ready for very strong subject matter.

Silly, dopey, like a comedy sketch that went too long!

See it if You are easily amused by sophomoric jokes.

Don't see it if You have any taste.

Banal, Cliched

See it if You like overly cute shows and aren't too discriminating.

Don't see it if You don't like sickening sweet plays.

The Humans
Midtown W
Moving, Easily identifiable, Great acting

See it if The characters and situations most people will identify with. Reveals the fragility of working class people aiming at the middle class.

Don't see it if Need a strong plot. Are uncomfortable with situations that cut too close to reality.

Iphigenia in Aulis
East Village
Moving, Creative, Original

See it if You want to see a classic play in an original, entertaining production. While funny at times, it was also never far from tragedy.

Don't see it if You are a traditionalist who can't stand any changes bring made to a classic.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Epic, Great staging

See it if Enjoy a new, fresh look at some familiar history.

Don't see it if If you have trouble with a lot of exposition. I loved it, but this was my college aged daughter's problem with it, particularly in Act I.

Amazing Grace
Midtown W
Banal, Cliched, Disappointing

See it if You don't mind sitting through a ridiculous epic with ho hum music, boring lyrics, and a badly plotted book.

Don't see it if You can get in to see almost anything else on Broadway.

The Emperor
Brooklyn
Not as good as it should have been, Disappointing

See it if You like 1 person shows in which many characters are represented, sometimes in stereotypical fashion. Also, the subject matter is riveting.

Don't see it if You would prefer a deeper, better exploration of this same topic. This was a somewhat superficial telling of this story.

Cliched, Insipid, Banal

See it if Perhaps people who have had a very serious illness can relate to this, but even then I think it would be a hard sell.

Don't see it if You don’t want to be bored to tears by this self indulgent, self congratulatory show which contains every cliché there is.

Also Not only is story filled with clichés, but the score is full of musica... Read more Read less

Fire in Dreamland
East Village
Disappointing, Great acting, Promising, but doesn’t fulfill that promise.

See it if The acting was great. The ideas were interesting.

Don't see it if It really needs to be rewritten and reshaped. Somehow it just doesn’t work.

Falsettos
Midtown W
Clever, Entertaining, Moving, Funny

See it if have ever been a parent, or someone's child. While it's very funny, you'll be reaching for a handkerchief by the end.

Don't see it if You can't think back to what things were like in the late 1970s/early 1980s.

Also I have always loved this show. I always find it heartbreaking. But a l... Read more Read less

Privacy
East Village
Entertaining, Clever, Interactive

See it if You want to see a clever, fun play on the serious subject of Internet privacy. It's like a Caryl Churchill play, but funny.

Don't see it if You don't want an interactive experience or you don't own a smart phone. Also, it does get a little long.

Clever, Fun, Refreshing, Moving

See it if You want a great intro to Shakespeare in a lively, funny, no -traditional, yet still moving performance.

Don't see it if You want to see a traditional version of the play. Also, this is a shorter version of the original, though it still feels whole.

98
Absorbing, Intelligent, Great set design

See it if You want to see an serious, thoughtful, but entertaining play. It might be of particular interest to teachers or parents of autistic kids.

Don't see it if I can't think of a good reason not to see it.

Funny, Original, Great acting

See it if You want to see a funny play about older women who are not stereotypes.

Don't see it if You are put off by potential suicide being used as a comic plot point.

Gimmicky, Condescending, Juvenile

See it if You want to see a first act that's like a bad sitcom.The second act begins with some sense the play might improve, but its only an illusion.

Don't see it if You would rather see something more intelligent.

Absorbing, Moving, Delightful

See it if No matter if you are Gay or Straight, you'll find something to identify with in this play! A touching, uplifting story of family.

Don't see it if Can't think of a good reason not to see it.
