The Nap (Broadway)
Midtown W
Clever, Funny, Great acting

See it if you want to see a play about deception, self deception and love centering on young snooker player. The Waxy Bush character is terrific.

Don't see it if you dislike northern British accents. Want something topical and political or a musical.

Torch Song (NYC)
Midtown W
Funny, Dated, Overrated

See it if you want to see a play that was groundbreaking back in the day (1982). The staging is inventive, but not grand as in other broadway shows.

Don't see it if the freshness of the 1982 production was memorable for you. Times have certainly changed. The role of the son seemed miscast.

Lonesome Blues
Midtown E
Slow, Good singing,

See it if you are interested in the blues and the great Depression.

Don't see it if you expect dramatic staging or don't like one person shows.(Note: the theater's elevator may be broken for a week. )

See it if you are interested in a drama that takes place in the 1960's in a religious order in NYC. Bigotry and police violence are explored.

Delightful, Enchanting, Great singing, Romantic, Great dancing

See it if you love a full orchestra and great singing and dancing. The audience walked out singing and humming.

Loveless Texas
East Village
Romantic

See it if you want to see a musical adaptation of Shakespeare's Love's Labor Lost. I enjoyed the band. It played sometimes when there was no singing.

Don't see it if you are bothered by French/Cajun accents. I saw a preview and they had lots of issues with the wireless mikes. Hopefully it's OK now.
