Aladdin (Broadway)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Disappointing, Funny

See it if You love Aladdin. Really, that’s it. Or if you’ve got kids who’ve already see the lion king and frozen.

Don't see it if You’re expecting something different from the movie. My favorite characters were new additions, but only lightly featured.

90
Clever, Funny, Must see, Relevant, Entertaining

See it if You like the movie, or you enjoy teenage tales of angst, popularity, and fitting in.

Don't see it if You don’t want to see teenagers dealing with teenage problems.

Amelie
Midtown W
Enchanting, Disappointing, Cliched, Quirky, Romantic

See it if you love Phillipa Soo, you enjoyed Amelie, or you like light-hearted musicals with singing fish.

Don't see it if you loved Amelie the movie- this doesn't capture the same magic, and the effort to do so feels overwrought.

Significant Other
Midtown W
Absorbing, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Resonant

See it if you like plays about being 20-something or 30-something and single, you like plays featuring gay characters, or you enjoy great acting.

Paramour
Midtown W
Cliched, Great staging, Disappointing

See it if You like cirque de soleil AND musicals, but neither at the top of its game.

Don't see it if You are looking for a great musical or a circus- style performance; it's fun but falls short of other productions.

89
Delightful, Entertaining, Cliched, Fluffy, Great singing

See it if You love old-fashioned musicals and you don't mind a thin plot. If you love singing and dancing, this is your show.

Don't see it if You are expecting something that's never been done before. This is based on classic songs and staging and characters, so it could feel dated

Confusing, Great singing, Romantic, Entertaining

Present Laughter

Dated, Entertaining, Clever, Indulgent, Great acting

Matilda
Midtown W
Enchanting, Cliched, Great staging, Overrated, Slow

See it if You think little kids and adults acting like little kids is entertaining and enjoyable for 3 hours. The sets are fantastic.
