The Rose Tattoo
Midtown W
Confusing, Great staging, Entertaining, Great acting, Funny

See it if This is typical Williams, Marisa Tomei was fantastic; the use of the women singer/musicians was a beautiful addition.

Don't see it if You have trouble following dialogue; the Italian, coupled with southern drawl, made it confusing. 2nd act humor was almost slapstick like.

Intelligent, Clever, Funny, Great acting, Great singing

See it if Raul, Brandon and Jin sang beautifully. It's an odd concept show but Sondheim's music and lyrics always a treat.

Don't see it if Like fully staged, traditional musicals or a linear plot.

Great singing, Great staging, Must see, Exquisite, Relevant

See it if Wonderful interpretation of a much revived musical. Less schtick from Tevya, less playing for laughs. Beautifully sung, danced.

Don't see it if You want a fancy set, complete adherence to English lyrics, or a Zero Mostel-like performance.

Assassins

Oslo (Broadway)
Upper W Side
Absorbing, Intelligent, Profound, Relevant, Great acting

See it if This nearly 3 hour long drama is well acted, beautifully and cleverly staged and totally absorbing. A subject about which I knew nothing.

Don't see it if You aren't interested in politics, the Arab/Israeli middle East conflict, or a play that at the end, surprisingly moved viewers to tears.

The New Yorkers

Great singing, Clever, Funny, Raunchy

Sunset Boulevard

Great singing, Overrated

See it if You like Glenn Close. She is the only reason to see the show.

Don't see it if You don't want to see a musical that should not have been revived. It's flaws have not been rectified.

Intelligent, Funny, Entertaining

See it if Wonderful Larson. The tribute to Sondheim is apparent and his influence strong. Great prelude to Rent, but more modest.

Don't see it if You expect Rent. This show is not a toe-tapping musical.

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

See it if Santino Fontana is great at Michael/Dorothy; the rest of the cast very talented too. Songs are clever and fun. Good adaptation of the movie

Don't see it if You're uncomfortable with foul language and graphic behavior on stage. It's for adults, not kids. Didn't like the original premise.

See it if You want to see a revival at its best..great singing, dancing, acting...At the Ballet had me in tears. Find a way to get a ticket.

Don't see it if If you're not a fan, don't bother. It's still about a bunch of diverse dancers auditioning for the chorus line.

Hey, Look Me Over!
Midtown W
Clever, Funny, Great singing, Intelligent

See it if If you're an Encores! fan, love fine dancing in a small space, enjoy 60s musicals that aren't revived often, but have some great songs.

Really Rosie
Midtown W
Funny, Quirky, Clever, Intelligent

See it if You want to see a show written on 2 levels - one for adults, one for kids. It's especially fun if you know Brooklyn. The kids have talent.

Don't see it if You don't like Maurice Sendak or Carol King, ans no longer have the soul of a child.

War Paint
Midtown W
Great singing, Great staging, Slow, Romantic, Funny

See it if You enjoy 2 leading ladies at the top of their game, beautiful staging, but a musical that could probably be cut by at least 1/2 an hour.

Don't see it if You don't like musicals that focus on women, are semi-biographical, and where the men sing equally well, but are mostly in the background.

Great singing, Interesting staging. nice chorus concept.

See it if You like throw back type musicals with silly plots and score similar to others, ie Kander and Ebb of an earlier day. Some songs are fun.

Don't see it if Insipid plot, not well developed characters.

61
Absorbing, Confusing, Intelligent

See it if You enjoy good performances by quality actors in a confusing show. Many in the audience weren't sure at the end what happened.

Don't see it if You don't like extraordinarily talky dramas. Matthew Broderick gives an opening monolog that lasts for many minutes and "sets the stage".

Dear World
Midtown E
Relevant, Delightful, Funny, Great acting, Great singing

See it if If you're a Jerry Herman and Tyne Daly fan. The rest of the cast is pretty darn good too. For a musical from 1969, it's scarily relevant.
