West Side Story
Midtown W
Great staging, Great singing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You like Ivo Von Hove productions. The play was exciting and beautifully performed. Loved the interaction of screens with actors on stage.

Don't see it if You are a purist and insist on classics being done the same old way.

Little Women
West Village
Refreshing, Quirky, Great acting, Funny, Clever

See it if You liked Kate Hamill’s previous versions of classics. Acting is great, very funny, thoroughly engaging

Thought-provoking, Edgy, Ambitious, Great acting, Great writing

See it if Well acted and absorbing one-act plays. Always had you on the edge of being uncomfortable, but totally engaged.

Don't see it if You are easily offended. Doesn’t shy away from race or politics. Not a light night at the theater.

Ambitious, Great acting, Funny, Thought-provoking, Entertaining

See it if You like Vonnegut and absurdist comedy. Jason Connell does a great job playing a macho overbearing guy and the rest of the cast is topnotch

Don't see it if You are easily offended by boorish behavior or if you don’t like absurd broad comedy. Plot is a little confusing at times.

Peter Pan
Midtown W
Clever, Entertaining, Hilarious, Funny, Quirky

See it if You enjoy Bedlam productions, appreciate a free-wheeling production, have a silly sense of humor, and love Peter Pan.

Don't see it if Expect a faithful adaptation of the original or need a conventional story line. Would be confusing if you didn’t know the Peter Pan story.

Also I found it just as hilarious and intriguing as other Bedlam production... Read more Read less

Tiny Beautiful Things
East Village
Indulgent, Disappointing, Cliched, Slow, Funny

See it if You like Cheryl Strayed.

Don't see it if You like dramatic performances. This play consists of letters and responses. It feels more like a reading than a theatrical event.

See it if You have a soft spot for Peter Pan and appreciate fine acting, especially the wonderful Kathleen Chalfant.

Don't see it if Can't deal with a quirky play. It jumps from a slow and awkward deathbed scene to a hilarious and touching Peter Pan take-off.

Absorbing, Atmospheric, Poetic, Great singing

See it if The singing alone did it for me. Fantastic performances make Dylan’s music shine. The atmosphere supports the music.

Don't see it if You don’t like Bob Dylan or are put off by the Depression Era plot

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Great staging

See it if You enjoy a well-acted comedy of secrets just waiting to be revealed. Great direction, very funny and entertaining.

Don't see it if You can’t sit still for 110 minutes without an intermission. (Chairs not too comfortable.) Or if you want a deep play or a musical.

During previews
Confusing, Great acting

Don't see it if You appreciatenabsurdist sardonic humor. I was alternately bored and annoyed as other roared with laughter, didn’t don’t for me.

Riveting, Masterful, Great singing, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if Of course if you ar a Dylan fan. But even if you aren’t the singers are fantastic and the songs are transcendent

Don't see it if You want to see a traditional uplifting musical with a linear plot. It’s pretty dark, but beautiful.

During previews
Thought-provoking, Funny, Great acting, Slow, Resonant

See it if You appreciate plays about social issues, know Queens, and are open to small productions. Enjoyable, thought-provoking, but a few slow spots

Don't see it if You wan a big fancy production, a linear script or are confused with characters playing multiple roles.

Party Face
Midtown W
Great acting, Hilarious, Entertaining, Fluffy

See it if You enjoy a touching comedy, great acting. The title says it all - put on a Party Face no matter what. It succeeded for me. It was a hoot.

Don't see it if Want a serious examination of suicide and depression .

Mary Jane
East Village
Ambitious, Great acting, Great staging, Slow

See it if You like serious dramas and great acting. It is slower than I expected.

Don't see it if You want a feel-good evening at the theater. The lead character keeps her chin up under the worst circumstances, but this is a sad play.

Van Gogh's Ear
Midtown W
Slow, Ambitious, Quirky, Clever, Resonant

See it if You are open to a slow-paced theatrical experience that is more a concert than a play. Beautiful visuals, well-performed.

Don't see it if You are looking for an action-packed play or if you dislike classical music and operatic singing.

Clever, Ambitious, Quirky, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You are curious what happens next after Nora walks out.

Don't see it if You are bothered by cursing and updated dialogue. Play had an odd balance of drama vs comedy. Lots of laughs at what could be serious lines.

See it if you appreciate South Park and you are not easily offended

Don't see it if you are offended by the F word and sexual jokes
