Fluffy, Indulgent, Excruciating, Dizzying, Disappointing

See it if you want to see a poorly done NYMF or Fringe show insult the Broadway stage. Cool fights. Good puppets, but not enough of them.

Don't see it if you expect Broadway to symbolize any set of standards. Not the actors fault-they were all talented & working hard-the show itself was awful.

Also I am a lover of the theatre & appreciate the skill that must go into a... Read more Read less

West Village
Relevant, Great acting, Edgy, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You like an animated cast, 70's & 80's pop-culture references, really awesome music, a girl-power message, and a generally fun time.

Don't see it if It's not a serious piece, but it definitely touches on serious social issues in a smart & amusing way. I'm sorry to see this one close!

Quirky, Raunchy, Entertaining, Funny, Clever

See it if You love the movie! They did a great job at expanding the universe. Alex Brightman fills Michael Keaton's shoes delightfully. Fun show!

Don't see it if You're looking for a serious, dramatic show. This one is a silly, horror romp. Not particularly impressive staging, but enjoyed the sandworm

Thought-provoking, Great staging, Slow, Intelligent, Clever

See it if Glenda Jackson & Ruth Wilson's performances are incredible. Excellent story telling via costume design for Goneril & Regan. Clever Staging

Don't see it if The performances were inconsistent. Great costume design for the leads, but ensemble's looks seem to have been purchased at Old Navy.

Overrated, Indulgent, Fluffy, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if You want to see some very talented actor/musicians work really hard. They are funny & refreshing to watch, & frequently switch instruments.

Don't see it if You prefer to see a strong story unfold; this reeks of vanity project for the two leads who also wrote it. Cheesy, and lacks diversity.

Ambitious, Refreshing, Riveting, Great staging, Great singing

West Village
Ambitious, Entertaining, Great staging, Great singing, Delightful

See it if You want to see very impressive actor/musicians play multiple instruments, and rock out to awesome arrangements of Grateful Dead songs

Don't see it if You want a nuanced, dramaturgically driven story. But if you do, then why go see a jukebox musical in the first place?

Also This show is all about the music and the production value itself. The ... Read more Read less

Composure
Midtown W
Great writing, Slow, Resonant, Intelligent, Thought-provoking

See it if You want to see a sincere piece of theatre involving some intense psychological relationship dynamics, gorgeous moments, and a strong script

Don't see it if Don't care for some over-powering sound design that takes away from the intense moments and reminds you of a 90's indie film.

77
Ambitious, Clever, Riveting, Intelligent

See it if You interested in a clever twist on the classic Shakespeare.

Don't see it if You don't have the patience for a particularly long show--3 hours. But it moved quickly.

Disappointing, Excruciating, Indulgent, Dizzying

See it if The club singer had a great costume, and the soundscape was gorgeous. Too touchy immersive production of Hotel California.

Don't see it if Inconsistent design elements, indulgent performances, and a real desperation to come across as deep or relevant.

Avenue Q (NYC)
Midtown W
Funny, Dated, Raunchy

See it if very fun show with some raunchiness and great music. Great Sesame Street spoof!

Don't see it if The book needs to be updated, some of the jokes are no longer relevant. The hype leads you to believe this is REALLY dirty, but it's tame.

Dizzying, Entertaining, Great singing, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if You are a fan of 80's style musical theatre insanity a la Tanz Der Vampire in the best way-a hilarious stylistic throwback to coked out days

Don't see it if You want to see a dramaturgically grounded show that attempts plot coherency. This one is ALL about style, of which, it certainly delivers.

Also Wow. This one was a great time-from the costume design that looked str... Read more Read less

Life Sucks.
Midtown W
Intelligent, Slow, Overrated, Indulgent

See it if You are a Chekov fan, or if you enjoy theatre that has sort of a semi-intellectual college vibe to it. Some solid performances in there.

Don't see it if If you want a show that moves. This one is a bit slow for my taste, and had indulgent direct address to the audience.

King Kong (NYC)
Midtown W
Slow, Excruciating, Disappointing, Cliched, Ambitious

See it if The puppet is pretty cool.

Don't see it if you want any sort of coherent plot, good music, or if you love the original film. This is at times 42nd St, & at times sloppy B-Movie.

Queen of Hearts
Brooklyn
Overrated, Edgy, Entertaining, Indulgent, Ambitious

See it if You want to see beautiful dancers & circus performers. Great talent on that stage, gorgeous costume design, & immersive scenic design. Sex!

Don't see it if Self indulgence of the creator manifests its way into the work itself. Run time too long for a sex driven variety show. Nightclubby/B & T.

Tootsie (NYC)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Entertaining, Funny

See it if The book is strong, & it's quite funny. Clearly the writer worked very hard to update the material. The choreography is fun, & cast is good.

Don't see it if You want to see a new story, or anything thought provoking. The music is very weak as well.

Relevant, Profound, Masterful, Great staging, Exquisite

See it if Absolutely beautiful staging and lights, tremendous costumes, some Broadway caliber talent in the cast, and VERY relevant in today's world

Don't see it if There were some kinks with the sound system, and the first act could enjoy a few cuts, but I'm not docking points, because this show rocks!

Also I attended the opening yesterday, which was the same day as Hilary's c... Read more Read less

Paris!
Brooklyn
Ambitious, Entertaining, Masterful, Raunchy, Thought-provoking

See it if A super sexy production with highly skilled dancers in fabulous costumes and very high production quality.

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Fluffy, Great singing

Chelsea
Indulgent, Overrated, Clever, Ambitious

See it if Beautiful, highly detailed design elements. This one is really for people who love immersive theatre and want to be part of the action

Don't see it if You don't want to hear bad opera music done midi style like it was from an 80's video game. Seriously.
