Disappointing, Quirky, Slow, Intelligent, Great acting

See it if you are really a Shaw fan, however it is not the best Shaw writing and there is a reason it is not often produced

Don't see it if you don't have patience. There are some good parts and the acting is good, but the story is not up to Shaw's standards.

81
Great staging, Indulgent, Clever

See it if you want an enjoyable evening on Broadway - good music, good story, well done

Don't see it if you want something deep and meaningful - this is just old fashioned good fun!

The Ferryman (NYC)
Midtown W
Great acting, Great writing, Absorbing

See it if you want to see a future classic - this is it. This is a great story well told, well acted and well produced.

Don't see it if Violence may be a problem for some

75
Network (NYC)
Midtown W
Overrated, Intense, Great acting

See it if Brian Cranston is superb, the rest of the cast is not. The message is too in your face and there are no subtle messages here.

Don't see it if You want a play that makes you think - the messages are too obvious the ending was typical political and missed the point of the show

All My Sons
Midtown W

See it if You enjoy well written plays that make you think.

Don't see it if You want to feel good at the end - this is not a happy ending play. It will leave you moved and make you think.

Slow, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Ambitious, Enlightening

See it if you enjoy experiencing different approaches to telling a story. The chamber music is exceptional, the story telling is weak.

Don't see it if you want or expect to see a traditional stage performance

Final Follies
West Village
Clever, Entertaining, Great acting, Refreshing, Great writing

See it if Two out of three is not bad, an enjoyable evening with A R Gurney. Typical WASP bashing, well written, well acted.

Don't see it if You can't take a little jab at the world of WASP's.

Babette’s Feast
Midtown W
Absorbing, Clever, Delightful, Enchanting, Intelligent

See it if Wonderful story, actors and production. This may be the best show currently in the city. An enchanting story masterfully told.

Clever, Ambitious, Entertaining, Great staging, Slow

See it if You are a Harry Potter fan or have kids. The staging is exceptional.The story clever, does a great job of incorporating almost every HP idea

Don't see it if Two nights is a big investment for Harry Potter - will be interesting to see how long that lasts. Hearing support equipment does not work!

64
Cliched, Disappointing, Indulgent, Overrated, Great writing

See it if While this is well written, the anger spoils the message

Don't see it if you are tired of angry people bashing old themes - get off the soap box and get some new material - K.A Conway is OLD NEWS

82
The Amateurs
Gramercy
Funny, Edgy, Delightful, Clever, Ambitious

See it if You want to think - there is a lot going on and there is a lot to think about - both during and after the performance

Don't see it if You want to see a show that has only one objective - to entertain you. You have to put something into this performance to get what is going

65
Ambitious, Entertaining, Slow, Disappointing, Intelligent

See it if About what you would expect, few surprises. Some of the arrangements were disappointing.

Don't see it if Like comfortable seats - this must be the worst theatre in New York. Very uncomfortable for a two hour no intermission show.

Twelfth Night
Soho/Tribeca
Clever, Entertaining, Intelligent, Ambitious, Funny

See it if You enjoy Shakespeare. This is a good production with some interesting twists to typical 12th Night's. The opening shipwreck was well done

94
Clever, Delightful, Great acting, Intelligent, Refreshing

See it if you love the great American songbook - this is where it all began! Really intelligent handling of Berlin's life and work. Well done workshop

Don't see it if You only want to hear Berlin's "Big Hits" - this focuses on the Berlin story with great music, but many of the big hits are missing

90
Entertaining, Quirky, Clever, Delightful, Funny

Don't see it if You are obsessed with Jane Eyre - it's the same story, but a whole lot more

Great acting, Entertaining, Masterful, Thought-provoking, Absorbing

See it if you want to think! This show requires you to be engaged and to think about what is happening. Great acting, great book.

Don't see it if you are lazy, this show requires a lot of thought. Use hearing devices if you have any trouble hearing, the dialog is subtle and important!

93
Must see, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You want to see something new, well done, and overall exceptional.

Don't see it if I can not think of a single reason not to see this show! Go see it!

Insipid, Fluffy, Banal

See it if Nothing else is playing

Don't see it if You respect Shakespeare, you enjoy a good plot / story, or if you want to see good acting - this misses all three marks

Tootsie (NYC)
Midtown W
Refreshing, Indulgent, Clever

See it if You like Yazbeck - this is a must see show. Great book, great score, well done overall. This is not a repeat of Tootsie the movie.

Don't see it if If you expect Tootsie the movie or if you don'e enjoy a well done musical

81
Delightful, Entertaining, Great staging, Refreshing, Romantic

Don't see it if you expect any surprises - this is very straight forward and true to the movie plot, a nice show but not exceptional

85
Clever, Entertaining, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Delightful

See it if If you enjoy musical theatre this show is for you! You will learn something at this show, guaranteed!

Don't see it if If you think the great American songbook starts with Billy Joel and Cindy Lauper, this show is probably not for you.

Delightful, Cliched, Refreshing, Clever, Entertaining

See it if You want to sit back and have a good time. Great chorus, good leads, at this point needs to be tightened up a bit. This will be around

Don't see it if Old white guys are probably not the target audience. Somewhat repetitive story and theme, but well done

74
Later Life
Midtown W
Entertaining, Cliched, Disappointing, Fluffy, Overrated

See it if Not the first show I would recommend. A little slow and obvious. The book left the actors out on a limb and never saved them.

Don't see it if Not Gurney's best although similar in theme to many of his productions. Nice that the ending was ambiguous nothing else required any thought

Hundred Days
East Village
Confusing, Disappointing, Fluffy, Ambitious, Overrated

See it if You have seen everything else - there isn't much here
