Saw this on broadway several times over 10 yr run, Belles included: jamie-lynn sigler, megan mcginnis, & christy carlson morano, All shows seen at the lunt-fontanne theater (not at the palace where is opened in 1994 for a 5-yr. run before transferring to the lunt for 7 more yrs

See it if The Disney show on Broadway that pretty much set the standard for Movie-to-Stage transfers. Little "Belles" everywhere kept this 1 on Bdwy.

Don't see it if Skip if U don't like a heavy dose of romance, corny humor, and a leading man that looks like ... well ... a Beast (he does transform at end)

Entertaining, Jessie mueller fans unite!!, Funny, Great acting, Great singing

See it if Jessie Mueller brings her girl-next-door looks & "Beautiful" voice to the Bdwy-version of a "chick-flick." Still, guys shouldn't despair?

Don't see it if Proud males may pass on the portrayal of Men (1 is a cad, 1 redeems himself, 1 is a dork, & most are cheaters). Moralists won't tolerate it.

The Crucible
Midtown W
Director ivo van hove makes the crucible into his own version of magic & hypocrisy, Ambitious, Great staging, Great writing, Must see

See it if I liked this version more that others I have scene. The director opens the door to the idea that the Magic might be real. And there's a WOLF

Don't see it if IF U don't think van Hove's add's would be approved of by the late Arthur Miller. If U demand the screeching teens of 2 many college prod's

John cameron mitchell as hedwig, Entertaining, Funny, Must see

See it if JCM was onstage, but by the time I saw him he had hurt himself and did the show on crutches & sitting on a stool. That said, STILL FABULOUS!

Don't see it if If you haven't seen the movie or the show when it was off-Broadway, then U better like loud rock and a trans-person inspired storyline.

Airline Highway
Midtown W
Banal, Disappointing, Steppenwolf co. shoulda stayed in chi-town?, Edgy, Overrated

See it if I saw this show from the Mezzanine which did not do the un-miked actors any favors. Lost about a quarter of the dialogue. Orchestra only??

Don't see it if Don't bother with this if U can't afford an orch seat or are hard-of-hearing (guess I'm getting older). Skip if White trash-style aint yours

Entertaining, Great staging, Must see

See it if Well, what looks like a "kiddie show" on paper, gets taken to another level by director Julie Taymor & her designers. You have to SEE IT!!

Don't see it if If you don't like "kiddie" elements you might have trouble w/ the first act. If you hate Elton John songs, puppetry, hyenas, talking animals

Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting

See it if I saw this when Matthew Morrison (GLEE) was still in the show and he did not disappoint. The non-musical movie version works & this show 2!

Don't see it if Well, if U hate Peter Pan and backstories then U'll just have to live with some Great performers like MM, Carolee Carmelo, & Kelsey Grammar?

Avenue Q (NYC)
Midtown W
"adult" comedy -actor/puppeteers, Saw show w/ 3 different casts on broadway!, Clever, Funny, Edgy

See it if NOT FOR KIDS under 20!! Show makes fun of ADULT foibles in graphic-puppet fashion, but it's ALL very funny (if U aren't thrown by muppets).

Don't see it if May be troubling if U can't decide on WHO to look at (the muppets or the actors controlling, speaking, singing for them). Adult topics: porn

During previews
Entertaining, Funny, Cush jumbo & janet mcteer are a pairing for the ages!, Why is all-female casting done more often, this breaks the mold!, Must see

See it if June is Gay pride month so an All-Female show w/ a Juicy kiss seems de riguer, but this Production is above all that. Fantastic cast & dir.

Don't see it if Yes they take liberties with Shakespeare's original script, so if U aren't open to ad libs, Pat Benatar/Joan Jett music, etc. etc. then pooh

City Stories
Midtown E
4 short plays with music in-between, Singer-pianist rosabella gregory finds the romance the plays don't, Of the 4 i saw (there are 6 playlets in all) "pearl" was the best of the lot., Overrated

See it if See it if U like short, humorless, romantic plays. Good for a 1st date & the acting is 1st rate. Best of all is the pianist that plays a lot

Don't see it if If U get invited by Showscore to see this, the seating is semi-horrible to one side of semi-thrust stage with tables & chairs (buy a drink).

Tuck Everlasting
Midtown W
Enchanting, Carolee carmelo, terrence mann, fred applegate, jessica lee goldyn, Must see

See it if TUCK EVERLASTING is not just a Feel-good musical but also answers the question of living forever in 2-1/2 hours. Great tree & fab cast too!!

Don't see it if Skip if U hate rural, period tales or if U find a "fountain of youth" tale to be too ridiculous to dramatize. "Dancing" chorus is intrusive.

Best "in-the-round" show u may ever c!, Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging, Edgy

See it if If it wasn't a TRUE STORY U wouldn't believe it, and that's what makes this show so GREAT. Cast has been working together awhile & it shows!

Don't see it if I think ultra-conservative homophobes would have a hard time with the main revelation in the show. There is a female-female kiss, too.

Old Hats
Midtown W
Entertaining, Great acting, Hilarious, Must see, Funny

See it if Bill Irwin & David Shiner are INSANE & the insanity doesn't end w/ them. Don't get a seat in the Front row cause Shiner loves to use victims

Don't see it if If U have a heart condition, stay away (or this could be your last day above ground). If U hate mime in any & all it's various forms, not 4U

During previews
Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Hilarious

See it if Equal parts Romance-in-Peril & DISASTER spoof, but also a shocase for Songs of the 70s & GREAT Bdwy singers beltin them out. 1979 flashback

Don't see it if If U want a "serious" musical this isn't it. If U hate 70's songs like "Without You" "Hot Stuff" etc. then the satire will be lost on U2 :(
