The Wrong Man
Midtown W
Relevant, Great singing, Great staging, Masterful, Must see

See it if Amazing score and lyrics , terrific dance performances, interesting choreography. Intense performance by entire cast.

Don't see it if Book/plot is slightly confusing. Some songs feel too long. Problems pale in light of shows many highlights

Ambitious, Clever, Resonant, Intelligent, Great staging

See it if You enjoy Sondheim. This is a good production of a flawed play. Well staged and well acted

Don't see it if You dislike classic Sondheim or if you need a good, interesting plot/story This one is deeply flawed but well done by Fiasco

Rocktopia
Midtown W
Cliched, Dizzying, Excruciating, Overrated, Disappointing

See it if You like LOUD classic rock sung poorly with cliched visual effects and costumes. You go to see talent even when the content isn’t working.

Don't see it if You treasure either classic rock or classical music. This mashup doesn’t work! NOT a “broadway” show in any classic sense (and not BS@Kerr)

Clever, Funny, Refreshing, Cliched, Entertaining

See it if You are looking for a fun night at the theater. The cast is wonderful- leads and ensemble. The music is Buffett - go if you’re a fan!

Don't see it if You’re looking for important themes or issues or if you don’t like Jimmy Buffett.

Dizzying, Excruciating, Insipid, Overrated, Indulgent

See it if You love the cartoon. The set is impressive. Festive. Colorful.

Don't see it if This show is ridiculous! Loud, brash, pointless. Too much!!

Enchanting, Great singing, Great staging, Must see, Refreshing

See it if You like great performances and a great score. You like fairy tales or fables. You like semi-immersive theater. Interesting sets/special fx.

Don't see it if You require a linear, tightly written plot, or are expect Big Broadway numbers. Also, set/costumes more gritty than glamorous.

Also See it while you can, before everyone realizes how great it is!

The Last Match
Midtown W
Great acting, Great writing, Great staging, Intelligent, Funny

See it if You enjoy dramas that explore human psychology with insight and compassion. You like great sets - the tennis theme is well done.

Don't see it if You want a linear plot or expect a complex story. This is really more a character study.

94
Delightful, Enchanting, Great staging, Must see, Great singing

See it if You like great acting and singing, amazing costumes, brilliant sets. Donna Murphy was fabulous!

Don't see it if There is no good reason not to see it - don't let Bette's absence deter you - the entire cast is first-rate

Anastasia (NYC)
Midtown W
Enchanting, Romantic, Delightful, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if You like fairy tales, you're a fan of the eponymous movies, you enjoy strong acting and singing performances, you like beautiful costuming

Don't see it if You are seeking deep meaning or historical accuracy, you don't enjoy classic book musicals, you hate princesses, etc

Dated, Disappointing, Great acting, Slow, Overrated

See it if You love good acting - the entire company is incredibly talented! You like period pieces and/or great sets

Don't see it if You are easily bored by plays with minimal plot structure. Even the great acting could not make up for the boring nature of the play

Also So disappointed - really confused as to why this show is so popular...

86
Great acting, Great singing, Masterful, Enchanting, Delightful

See it if You want to see great performances by great actors, If you like Sondheim, period pieces, or have an appreciation for the importance of art

Don't see it if You're expecting amazing sets or you like your musicals to be lighthearted entertainment

Disappointing, Slow, Overrated, Banal, Entertaining

See it if You want to be entertained by decent actors singing good songs. If you want to learn Carole King's story via a pleasant Broadway show

Don't see it if You love the music as it was originally released, you want unique or amazing, or if you want a strong story- King's life not so interesting

95
Enchanting, Entertaining, Must see, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if You love groundbreaking musical theater and an overall great time. You like strong ensembles. You believe in friendship and tolerance.

Don't see it if You're looking for a traditional Broadway production. Actually, see it anyway!!

Also Fantastic ensemble piece with a unique generosity of spirit. Unique an... Read more Read less

Amelie
Midtown W
Disappointing, Banal, Insipid, Slow, Excruciating

See it if You love Phillipa Soo and would see her anything

Don't see it if You want memorable music, a discernible plot, or interesting staging - in other words, don't see it! I wanted to leave - I never leave!

75
Entertaining, Disappointing, Cliched, Banal, Romantic

See it if You love the movie and want to see a fun, if banal, rom-com on stage

Don't see it if You’re looking for original ideas, great music, or great performances. It’s all kind of ok - just not special.

89
Exquisite, Great singing, Must see, Profound, Relevant

See it if You want to be inspired by beautiful performances by exceptionally talented singers. Funny too! A gust of fresh air in today’s climate!

Don't see it if You don’t like great singers singing beautiful and inspiring songs.

Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging, Intelligent, Masterful

See it if You appreciate classic Shakespeare performed superbly. This production is well directed and easy to follow the trajectory of each character.

Don't see it if You don’t appreciate Shakespeare (or a beautiful summer evening in the park)

Disappointing, Overrated, Fluffy, Romantic, Banal

See it if You like the movie and the general Disney princess theme. You love to see movies come to life in stage. Good special effects.

Don't see it if You’re expecting a new, different, or exciting version of the movie. This show is less good than movie and at times devolves into silliness

Absorbing, Great acting, Masterful, Funny, Refreshing

See it if You like great acting. All three leads give a master class! Ms. Jackson is a powerhouse! The play itself is brilliant. Also, awesome set!

Don't see it if You need plot driven, eventful plays. This is entirely character driven. It’s all about great actors delivering great lines!

Great singing, Great staging, Dated, Overrated, Refreshing

See it if You like classic book musicals. Full orchestra is wonderful. All leads have great voices. Great dancing!

Don't see it if The story itself is cliched and dated. The acting is not great - I kinda didn’t care about the outcome despite powerful vocal performances.

Exquisite, Great acting, Great singing, Funny, Slow

See it if You love great sets and semi-immersive theater. Character driven drama. Rylance is brilliant, as is the rest of cast. The music is beautiful

Don't see it if You are seeking suspense. The play itself has some slow moments where the trajectory of the plot gets lost.

Funny, Clever, Relevant, Resonant, Slow

See it if You enjoy political satire, good acting, great sets

Don't see it if You like the Trump administration or if you have very conservative values

Funny, Entertaining, Refreshing, Clever, Delightful

See it if You like kids, rock n roll, book musicals. Super high energy. Many laughs. Cast is great!

Don't see it if You don't like loud music or kids in musicals, you're looking for a classic Broadway experience, you're not in an upbeat mood

87
Absorbing, Great acting, Great singing, Great staging, Masterful

See it if You love intimate, immersive theater with outstanding performances by elite Broadway actors and excellent orchestrations. Truly riveting!

Don't see it if You dislike the play, blood/violence onstage, or if you dislike immersive, non-traditional theater.

Absorbing, Great acting, Relevant, Slow, Resonant

See it if You like to see Shakespeare very well acted (Corey Stoll, Eliz Marvel &John Thompson are great!) and made cleverly relevant and modern

Don't see it if You don't like the specific play itself, gun violence on stage, or classics made modern..

Bandstand
Midtown W
Resonant, Great staging, Entertaining, Ambitious, Great singing

See it if You like great choreography and sensitive storytelling embodied in a classic book musical. Great dance numbers. Strong singing

Don't see it if You're expecting "wow!", you insist that your musicals have strong plot lines; you don't enjoy Blankenbeuler's style of choreography.

Indecent
Midtown W
Intelligent, Relevant, Profound, Intense, Absorbing

See it if You are interested in Yiddish theater and/or orthodox Jewish culture You enjoy a thought-provoking, well written/staged/acted drama. Bravo!

Don't see it if You are looking for a big Broadway production or if you want something light and fluffy and fun. This is important and intense.

Entertaining, Ambitious, Classic, Absorbing, Clever

See it if You like the movie, New York stories, classic book musicals, well staged, well acted and sung, a fun night at a quality Broadway musical

Don't see it if You're expecting the emotional power of the movie. Don't go looking to be "wowed" - It's good, not great. Score is strong, not memorable

Clever, Disappointing, Fluffy, Slow, Great staging

See it if You want light, fluffy fun. Great visual effects. Strong lead. Happy endings.

Don't see it if You are looking for a fabulous or meaningful theater experience. The music is simply not memorable, and the plot is, well, just repetitive.
