Gnit
Brooklyn
Slow, Quirky, Great writing, Funny, Clever

See it if You would enjoy Eno’s high wit in a very dry rendering. Michael Maher (from The Flick) is a comic genius as the Town and their many voices

Don't see it if You prefer an emotionally deep show rather than cleverness. Or if Peter Gnit’s relentless selfishness would annoy you.

Also Well cast and directed with some playing several roles, the set and ex... Read more Read less

Unknown Soldier
Midtown W
Beautiful music beautifully sung, moving and romantic, thoughtful

See it if You can enjoy a romantic musical gorgeously sung and cleverly constructed, with lyrics full of complexity and mystery.

Don't see it if You like a clear storyline where you don’t have to work a little to understand what is happening.

Also Daniel Goldstein (Book/Lyrics) won a Kleban Prize in 2016 for Most Pro... Read more Read less

Funny, Great writing, Entertaining, Great singing, Clever

See it if You enjoy a fast-moving show featuring a young, talented cast singing and dancing their hearts out doing terrific parodies/hilarious skits.

Don't see it if You wouldn’t enjoy a largely acerbic parody skewering Broadways shows.

Also Like it’s predecessors, Forbidden Broadway Next Generation offers funn... Read more Read less

One in Two
Midtown W
Edgy, Resonant, Great acting, Funny, Clever

See it if A cleverly staged show with 3 talented Black actors deftly changing parts to portray characters circling an HIV positive man is intriguing.

Don't see it if A show about Black gay culture and the ongoing disproportionate # of Black men getting infected wouldn’t interest you.

Also Director Stevie Walker-Webb keeps the piece moving briskly and uses th... Read more Read less

Grand Horizons
Midtown W
Great acting, Great writing, Funny, Intelligent

See it if You enjoy witty comedies based on sexual themes, female empowerment and family dynamics of adult children with their aging parents.

Don't see it if Adult handling of sexually charged jokes and situations and the secrets of a long-time married couple wouldn’t interest you.

Also Michael Urie is hilarious as the sensitive drama teacher son. Jane Ale... Read more Read less

Betrayal
Midtown W
Great acting, Intelligent, Masterful, Intense

See it if You enjoy Pinter’s opaque and complex writing performed by 3 top-notch young and beautiful actors.

Don't see it if You don’t like complex nonlinear dramatic dialogue with a bare bones set.

The Rose Tattoo
Midtown W
Quirky, Entertaining, Dated

See it if Marisa Tomei full throttle in a milestone role with large supporting cast in a Trip Cullman directed passion piece would delight you.

Don't see it if Tennessee Williams’ over-the-top quirky, romantic excesses annoy you.

77
Entertaining, Funny, Quirky

See it if You enjoy fun musicals without deeper meanings. Wonderful sets and costumes. Alex Brightman has a great time leading the show!

Don't see it if You want something more than just entertainment.

The Great Society
Upper W Side
Relevant, Disappointing, Ambitious

See it if You are curious to see the follow-up to “All the Way.” Brian Cox gives a full-punch performance and much of the writing is great,

Don't see it if Seeing a production which ultimately fails to illuminate LBJ would leave you dissatisfied.

98
Intelligent, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if You want to see a perfectly cast ensemble tackling a densely-packed philosophical script which captures peoples’ contradictions.

Don't see it if You can’t handle a debate-filled philosophical production with views not typical of left-leaning urban audiences.

97
Great writing, Riveting, Masterful, Great acting, Intense

See it if You enjoy being challenged by a nonlinear script and watching two master actors doing brilliant work on a beautiful set.

Don't see it if You don’t like to have to think and pay close attention dealing with a non traditional structure.

Midtown W
Resonant, Confusing, Relevant

See it if You could be sympathetic to the hardships and disappointments endured by long-term illegal immigrants living in the U.S.

Don't see it if You wouldn’t Iike following their day-to-day struggles and mistakes leading to further entrapment. There is a lot of rapid dialogue.

Also Watching this will be a different experience for anyone affected by il... Read more Read less

Beyond Babel
West Village
Exuberant, uniquely personal choreography, charming

See it if A joyfully loud piece using stylized urban dance, lyrics, bright costumes and facial expressions of amazingly talented dancers. Ah youth!

Don't see it if You wouldn’t enjoy a young dance troup retelling “Romeo and Juliet” their way: loud music, haze, strobe lights, modern urban feel.

Interesting, sad, real-life, relevant

See it if A true story of the self-esteem issues arising from a daughter’s publicly revered but wounded mother would have relevance for you.

Don't see it if You aren’t interested in a behind-the-headlines one woman show exposing a painful life.

Also This brave piece explores the issues that daughters of narcissists hav... Read more Read less

The Thin Place
Midtown W
Masterful, Great acting, Refreshing, Riveting, Quirky

See it if A drama full of hairpin turns and stage manipulation to make dramatic points about how we form beliefs would interest you.

Don't see it if Not having pat answers about the supernatural or even the truthfulness of the characters would bother you.

Also Playwright Lucas Hnath and his Director Les Waters have created a mult... Read more Read less

Fun, beautiful costumes, live orchestra, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if What was the 1st Yiddish musical on the LES in 1883? This researched, beautifully sung, richly staged and orchestrated piece can show you!

Don't see it if You wouldn’t enjoy English subtitles and a sentimental storyline.

Also All of the parts are beautifully cast.... Read more Read less

Greater Clements
Upper W Side
Deeply affecting, Great writing, Great staging, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You can enjoy a story reflecting real life disappointments/struggles. Great writing, Judith Ivey and newcomer Edmond Donovan are riveting.

Don't see it if You don’t like a story which unfolds slowly and doesn’t offer convenient, happy resolutions to difficult, ongoing situations.

Also Ivey and Donovan are backed by a terrific ensemble. ... Read more Read less

Power Strip
Upper W Side
Relevant, Great staging, Great writing, Resonant, Absorbing

See it if You like brave and important new work with a strong female character in a refugee situation.

Don't see it if You don’t like characters in bleak situations, even if they’re successful in their survival.

87
Intelligent, Resonant, Great writing

See it if You like seeing characters based on real people but not typically explored by mainstream dramas.

Don't see it if You’re not interested in family dynamics revolving around religion and politics.

Bella Bella
Midtown W
Entertaining, Relevant, Funny

See it if You want to see Harvey Fierstein in his one-man lively valentine to Bella Abzug. The show reminds us why feminists started fighting.

Don't see it if Seeing Harvey Fierstein alone on stage as Bella Abzug is not your cup of tea.

Great acting, Great writing, Entertaining, Exquisite, Absorbing

See it if You want to see that rare production which combines great acting, great directing and great writing. A mesmerizing gem.

Don't see it if You don’t like darker themes and/or want to know exactly what’s going on as the play unfolds.
