Wickedest Woman
Upper W Side
Entertaining, Quirky, Slow, Cliched, Ambitious

See it if you identify as pro-choice and enjoy period dramas, and don't mind a show that feels amateurish.

Don't see it if you won't enjoy a production that is very on-the-nose and a bit unrefined.

Gloria: A Life
Gramercy
Great acting, Relevant, Entertaining, Ambitious, Thought-provoking

See it if you appreciate feminism, social justice, and great performances. You want to learn more about a fascinating woman and her life's work.

Don't see it if the subject matter does not appeal to you, you don't enjoy biographical plays

Clever, Funny, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Intelligent

See it if you want to be thoroughly entertained by smart writing, a fantastic cast, and thought provoking subject matter

Don't see it if you prefer Serious Dramas and won't appreciate a comedic --but still thoughtful and nuanced -- approach to complex issues

Resonant, Great writing, Intelligent

See it if you are interested in feminism, law, speech and debate, or just really great, creative writing and a deeply personal performance

Don't see it if you prefer things that are linear, you don't like one-woman shows (which this very much feels like)

Great singing, Slow, Overrated, Indulgent, Great acting

See it if you love the classic music and musical-going experience, you don't need the source material to "hold up" in 2018

Don't see it if you prefer revivals to feel particularly fresh or updated

93
Great singing, Refreshing, Entertaining, Absorbing, Ambitious

See it if you want to see a jukebox musical with iconic music and a plot/format that actually makes sense, based on a fascinating life story

Don't see it if you're not a Carole King fan for some incomprehensible reason

Delightful, Quirky, Clever, Funny, Great acting

See it if You have kids or are an adult who could use some escapist fun. It's a very quirky and heartfelt show and we all (3 adults) loved it.

Don't see it if You're determined not to have a good time.

Nassim
Midtown W
Absorbing, Must see, Great writing, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if you want to feel a deep personal connection to a play, playwright, actor, and audience.

Don't see it if you are grieving the loss of a parent (just proceed with caution)

Entertaining, Relevant, Ambitious, Great staging, Quirky

See it if you want to spend the evening laughing (often nervously); you are open to being "called in" and are comfortable sitting in your discomfort

Don't see it if you will feel personally offended by a comedic (and totally fair) dragging of well-meaning white people

Cliched, Disappointing, Slow

See it if you love oddly staged/arranged Dylan songs so much that you're willing to tolerate an unnecessary mediocre boardinghouse plot, or vice versa

Don't see it if you like musicals with any sort of symbiosis between the music and book, you are annoyed by cliched characters/tropes or cloying folksiness

Also Imagine if Our Town had been written by someone who'd never visited Ne... Read more Read less

Great singing, Dated, Intense, Thought-provoking, Disappointing

See it if you love the score, you love ballet, you are willing to forgive a lot of sins because of how much you love the score and/or ballet

Don't see it if you want to watch a cast of people who can all act, sing, AND dance and are well matched to their roles

Also the set was gorgeous and the music remains beautiful, but this otherwi... Read more Read less

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Ambitious, Intelligent, Relevant, Great writing

See it if you want to learn, be challenged, experience something innovative and powerful

Don't see it if you're boycotting in solidarity with Mike Pence

Resonant, Great acting, Great writing, Great singing, Great staging

See it if you want a show that's engaging, encouraging, and honest. It's uplifting and fun to watch, but still substantive.

Don't see it if you'll feel personally targeted by a gentle call out of xenophobia and/or racial prejudice.
