Ambitious, Disappointing, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Slow

See it if you want to see a show that cast a nonbinary person and a two-soul person for trans roles. :D

Don't see it if you want those trans people to have large speaking roles. Mostly it's a show about straight white men exploring the concept of privilege.

Also This show requires the viewer to think about it a bit after the show h... Read more Read less

West Village
Relevant, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Great acting, Confusing

See it if you like a strong female cast, good acting, and a play that make you think about what you saw for hours afterward.

Don't see it if you don't like shows that are about feminism or cross-generational dialogue.

Also I'm stilling chewing on the message of this show. I honestly don't kno... Read more Read less

The Undertaking
Midtown E
Clever, Slow, Thought-provoking, Intelligent

See it if you like shows that look at death and near-death.

Don't see it if you want a lot of action and entertainment. It gets a bit lost in thought at some points.

Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Great singing, Hilarious

See it if you want to see amazing opera singers doing a Jerry Springer Show. If you need a laugh, or enjoy some irreverent humor. It's a good time!

Don't see it if you are not open to some blasphemous humor. Or if you don't like British-style humor. Or if you don't like Jerry Springer.

Also I rarely see a show more than once. I've seen this one 3 times! The ac... Read more Read less

The Antipodes
Midtown W
Confusing, Dizzying, Funny, Weird, Surreal

See it if you like Annie Baker's earlier works, or if you like a show purely about storytelling. It starts sane and slowly becomes surreal.

Don't see it if you don't like weird, surreal happenings, or if you need a clear point or conclusion. You won't get any of that with this show.

Cliched, Insipid, Slow, Banal, Disappointing

See it if you like seeing new work that deals with issues of what-if and somewhat apocalyptic ideas. Or if you like small shows in small spaces.

Don't see it if you like decent characters, or rounded characters, or character development. The main characters were boring, and the plot was not developed

Also This show suffers from trying to do too much and failing to do anythin... Read more Read less

Bull in a China Shop
Upper W Side
Absorbing, Clever, Funny, Great acting, Thought-provoking

See it if you enjoy plays about history. Or if you want a lesbian couple being shown just living their lives, with normal conflicts and conversation!

Don't see it if you don't like homosexuality. Or women's rights. Or revolution.

All The Fine Boys
Midtown W
Great acting, Intense, Riveting, Thought-provoking, Ambitious

See it if you like dark stories with very impressive acting that draw you in, horrify you, and make you think. Really worth seeing.

Don't see it if TRIGGER WARNING: there is sex with a minor depicted onstage. Sexual content with teens also depicted onstage. Definitely Rated R.

Everybody
Midtown W
Clever, Dizzying, Riveting, Thought-provoking, Quirky

See it if you want to see an adaptation of a play from the 1500s, using modern language and a very different approach to actor roles and staging.

Don't see it if you don't like atypical staging, acting, or experiences. Or if you have problems with strobes and fog effects (it's only a 5 min sequence).

Also BJJ has done an interesting thing with this show. Not to give anything... Read more Read less

Albatross
Midtown E
Great acting, Masterful, Intense, Dizzying, Clever

See it if you like retellings of old stories. It takes Rime of the Ancient Mariner and makes it easier to understand and connect with.

Don't see it if you don't like projections, fog, or strobe effects. Or swearing. He swears like a sailor. Can get a bit slow in places.

Sweet Charity
Midtown W
Entertaining, Funny, Refreshing, Fluffy, Clever

See it if you want to see a musical with a non-traditional ending. It's a fun show, some good laughs, and the theatre is very intimate.

Don't see it if you don't like musicals.

Clever, Great writing, Intense, Quirky, Thought-provoking

See it if you want to see something different. It makes you think, and it is not for everyone, but it is very interesting.

Don't see it if you are triggered by people struggling to breathe. There is a significant amount of gasping for breath at one point.

Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Great staging, Thought-provoking

See it if you want to see a great play, with an amazing cast of women all playing a single woman character through time.

Don't see it if you don't like plays that are out of chronological order. *I found it really absorbing, but that's me*

Also This show was AWESOME. Hands down. The director, Lila Neugebauer, real... Read more Read less

See it if you saw Frozen the movie and want to see a fun, Disney musical version with new songs and very cool special effects.

Don't see it if you don't like sharing a space with a lot of children of all ages and their parents/grandparents.

Also Seeing this show was very fun for me. I am a theatre technician, so I ... Read more Read less

Clever, Funny, Great staging, Great acting, Intelligent

See it if you like watching good directing in action. It's not action packed, but it deserves the standing ovations it has received night after night.

Don't see it if you need a lot of action, have issues with sexual conversations, or dislike long monologues.

Also Lila Neugebauer is a great Director, and she and the creative team did... Read more Read less

Ballyturk
Brooklyn
Odd, Confusing, Great acting, Dizzying, Thought-provoking

See it if you like off-the-wall theatre that is very active and makes you really pay attention to try and figure out what's happening.

Don't see it if you don't like Twilight Zone-esque plots. It got a little weird and confusing for sure.

See it if you want to see a very smart play about Malcolm X, some incredible acting, and awesome set and lighting design.

Don't see it if you don't like intelligent theatre with a great cast and the opportunity to learn something new.

See it if you love great acting by incredible actors. The directing is very well done. There is a perfect blend of humor and intense emotion.

Don't see it if you don't like swearing, or if you don't like prison-based plot-lines.

Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging, Riveting, Thought-provoking

See it if you like a good story about people and relationships. The characters were interesting. It made me question my understanding of behaviors.

Don't see it if you don't like nudity (brief as it is), homosexuality, or shows without intermissions.

Absorbing, Clever, Delightful, Great acting, Resonant

See it if you like short, one-man shows that are pure storytelling. A sweet look at the relationship between granddad and grandson.

Don't see it if you don't like one-man shows, small venues, or a lack of action. It's a story. The stage is tiny. The set is minimal.

Also This show was a very sweet telling of a story by a grandson about his ... Read more Read less

Wakey, Wakey
Midtown W
Ambitious, Clever, Great writing, Great acting, Must see

See it if you want a play that looks at death in a very different way. It's a celebration of life, and coming to an understanding about mortality.

Don't see it if you need an action-packed play. It gets slow in places, but there is a reason! Stay to the end!

Also The first thing that must be understood about this show is why it was ... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging, Great writing, Riveting

See it if you want an incredible set of actors telling an engaging and emotional story set in 1977 Pittsburgh. I'm not doing it justice. See below.

Don't see it if you don't like staged violence. A gun is shown but not used, and the vernacular takes a minute to get an ear for, but that's really it.

Also I came to this show because I loved Fences and the Piano Lesson as scr... Read more Read less

East Village

In Transit
Midtown W
Entertaining, Funny, Great singing, Cliched, Delightful

See it if you are from NYC and ride the MTA often. This show is full of inside jokes that only people who deal with the MTA are going to understand.

Don't see it if you're looking for something with depth. Or if you aren't a MTA rider. Or if you don't like Acapella.

Relevant, Thought-provoking, Great writing, Great staging, Intense

See it if you have any interest in race relations in the context of S. African apartheid. This show is super relevant to US race relations as well.

Don't see it if you don't like conflict. Or if you want a clearly happy ending.
