Avenue Q (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Banal, Funny, Raunchy, Original

See it if You want to see something a little ... different.

Don't see it if You don't want to ruin the muppets for your children.

93
Once (Broadway)
Midtown W
Exquisite, Great writing, Original, Romantic, Refreshing

See it if you want to see an original, charming take on a romance between ordinary people. It's lovely and the music is to die for.

Don't see it if you want flash and pizzazz in your musical. This one is quite calm.

77
Chicago (NYC)
Midtown W
Edgy, Great acting, Entertaining, Refreshing, Raunchy

See it if You're in a dark and sassy mood. Or, y'know, if you just want to see a classic with an awesome soundtrack.

Don't see it if You don't know what you're getting into, or if you're taking your kids, or if you DON'T want to see a musical number about murder.

96
Absorbing, Ambitious, Epic, Masterful, Must see

See it if Honestly, this show is a classic. Everyone should see it, and no, the movie doesn't count.

Don't see it if You've heard the soundtrack (you probably have) and for some reason are not a fan of the songs.

81
Clever, Intelligent, Great writing, Quirky, Refreshing

See it if You want to see an adolescent microcosm in the context of a school spelling bee. Nostalgic, cute, and reminds you of your awkward years.

Don't see it if You want something a little deeper. This can be fluffy at times, but it's wonderful.

If/Then
Midtown W
Absorbing, Exquisite, Intelligent, Intense, Resonant

See it if You want to see Idina Menzel absolutely STUN. This show is beautifully written, beautifully staged, and the cast is immensely talented.

Don't see it if You prefer to have a very clear plot or if you're not good with multiple storylines happening simultaneously.

80
Clever, Funny, Relevant, Original, Thought-provoking

See it if You're good with metaphors and want to see something hilarious.

Don't see it if you're going to think it's completely serious.

91
Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Exquisite, Epic

See it if You love the Wizard of Oz and want to get a new perspective on a classic story, with some incredible singing and set-work as well.

Don't see it if You're sick of everyone singing Defying Gravity.

70
Ambitious, Dizzying, Exquisite, Intense, Romantic

See it if You want something GRAND, romantic, and the kind of musical that will sweep you off your feet.

Don't see it if You're looking for comedy or are not a fan of clichés.

Hair
Midtown W
Delightful, Confusing, Intense, Profound, Thought-provoking

See it if You'd like a show with an infectious soundtrack that also offers insight into the Vietnam era of american history.

Don't see it if you're looking for a sunny, feel-good musical. The bright posters featuring 'let the sun shine in' are highly misleading in that way.

59
Cliched, Exquisite, Dizzying, Slow, Masterful

See it if You want to see a classic musical, if a little overrated.

Don't see it if Sopranos make your ears hurt

74
Clever, Banal, Funny, Hilarious, Quirky

See it if You've seen and the Monty Python sketches. Lots of inside jokes -- can be enjoyed without having seen them, but much better if you have.

Don't see it if You don't like fart jokes or utterly ridiculous humour.

74
Rent
Midtown W
Absorbing, Cliched, Great writing, Edgy, Intense

See it if you want to be wowed by a classic musical that's still very relevant

Don't see it if You're fairly young (I saw this for the first time in middle school and that was a bad call).

100
Riveting, Thought-provoking, Resonant, Profound, Exquisite

See it if You've had mental health issues or know someone who has, or if you want to understand the frustrations of the american mental health system.

Don't see it if No. Just go see it. But be prepared to cry.

71
Disappointing, Entertaining, Funny, Slow, Fluffy

See it if You're a small child or a grown-up whose childhood was this movie.

Don't see it if You hate being surrounded by children when you're at the theater.

76
Banal, Funny, Raunchy, Hilarious

See it if You can put aside the parts of you that may get offended in favour of amazing songs and laughing so hard you cry.

Don't see it if You're easily offended. Or if you're with your highly religious cousin and mother, like I was.
