If you like this person's taste, follow him or her!
See it if You like something different, Dave Malloy’s inscrutable musicals, and beautiful harmony (Heather, it would be awesomer w/o amplification)
Don't see it if You need to know what is going on inside Heather Christian’s head. From tape to transcript to Latin to your ears, you won’t follow it all.
See it if You like Faith Salie, NPR, or one-woman shows that try so very very hard to be likable. It is a modestly enjoyable show.
Don't see it if You want a polished show (it's all over the place) or a funny show (I was expecting more laughs).
See it if You like very short productions, stories ripped from reality, good acting.
Don't see it if You don’t like stories of naïve (self-righteous) criminals getting caught.
See it if You like Lili Taylor (she's great) or Wallace Shawn's writing (you can see him in some of the phrases) or enjoy monologues in development.
Don't see it if You are tired (it's a bit scatterbrained/indulgent/verbose), like the character in the play, or if you have COVID.
See it if You’ve never seen a sitcom or a black-cliche or a gay-cliche and you want a not-terrible evening.
Don't see it if You dislike over-acting, immature writing and a mishmash of styles. It doesn’t help that the 15-year old is loudly played by 30-year old?
See it if You want to see a Dylan jukebox musical and you are not from the U.S. and think this is about America.
Don't see it if You don’t like jukebox musicals patched together with the most depressing, boring, unfinished stories you’ve ever imagined.
See it if You missed this on Broadway, you are in Brooklyn and like supporting local theater, you like broad dramedy.
Don't see it if You want nuanced acting (the lead male actor over-acts to a painful extreme), you expect some important reveal (this is not The Humans!).
See it if You like Shakespeare, you like music, you like energetic young people putting music to Shakespeare, you like supporting local artists.
Don't see it if You want perfection, you don’t like Shakespeare, you like polished and nuanced performances
See it if You like Sondheim, you like intimate revues of his music, you want to support local (Brooklyn) theater, you don’t mind songs without acting.
Don't see it if You only enjoy polished performances, you don’t like Sondheim, you like Sondheim but you think he’s a fool for saying Assassins is perfect.
See it if You won tickets or got them for <$25 or you want to see a special performance by Lucas Steele (The Great Comet)
Don't see it if You like your ear drums or you hate solo American Idol-style performances or you don’t like silliness.
See it if You want a one-man, kitchen-sink show that repeats itself repeats itself repeats itself. You like Javier Muñoz (In the Heights, Hamilton).
Don't see it if You are tired of cliched writing with a half-dozen, poorly-formed story lines including an irrelevant coming out subplot. (So novel!)
See it if You like your classics messed with. This Dracula is funny, fast-paced, written well and simply staged. It’s a hoot.
Don't see it if You are a purist. Dracula is still a bad man but so are all men. Don’t see it if you can’t handle an long work that needs tightening.
See it if You like contemplative plays with two good actors. The music is atmospheric. The staging is bare but clever.
Don't see it if You are sleepy or want action. It’s s l o w. Most of the play is one actor telling you what happened rather than acting.
See it if You like medical history, true-life drama, and ambitious narrative structure.
Don't see it if You don’t want to indulge one person’s issues with their family. You want something fast moving and straightforward.
See it if You like new works that have no idea where to go. The company of 3 is enthusiastic and friends in the audience will tell you when to laugh.
Don't see it if You want a coherent story.
See it if You don't mind a simple song-and-dance program with a message about the environment.
Don't see it if You expect anything as cool as the poster, you can't stand off-key singing, or you aren't Australian because the Aussies were dying laughing
See it if You like Sam Shepard plays, you like dark and foreboding drama, you like small productions. This is in your face.
Don't see it if You don't like small productions.
See it if You like small new musicals, family-friendly shows, and catchy music. It's interesting for children and adults. Staci Stout is REALLY good.
Don't see it if You want a polished show, a big show, strong and clear sound, a live band.
See it if You like the best song in Off Broadway history—Suddenly Seymour—or you want to see a funny, cleverly done animatronic plant!
Don't see it if You don’t like campy shows or shows that were never fully developed.
See it if You like rakugo and want to see a non-Japanese storyteller. That's the only reason.
Don't see it if You need sleep or want to be entertained instead of being told that you are being entertained. Katsura Sunshine thinks highly of himself.
See it if You like Broadway but you don’t mind your favorite shows and stars being skewered. This is a hilarious, clever, merciless spoof.
Don't see it if You haven’t seen many shows (you won’t get the references) or you don’t like small shows in small theaters.
See it if You are a Peter Dinklage fan. He's fun to watch and sings pretty well also (with a DEEP voice). Jasmine C-Jones (orig. Hamilton cast).
Don't see it if You want a polished show, catchy tunes (the music stinks), good staging. This is a work in progress that probably should be discarded.
See it if You see one show in your entire life. It's that good.
Don't see it if You like simple Broadway shows with simple lyrics and simple music. This is complex.
See it if You are human. You’ve heard a Talking Heads song. You like intelligent, choregraphed concerts. You want a once-in-lifetime experience.
Don't see it if You are not human. You don’t like loud music and occasional strobe lighting.
See it if You like acrobatic dancing, good singing, and near-nakedness. Pop tunes with Alice-related lyrics. Not extremely raunchy burlesque.
Don't see it if You don’t like incense, red lights, male and female nudity, Brooklyn, or if you are tired so tired of Alice in Wonderland cliches.
See it if You want to see a play staged as jazz. There’s so much going on! Not for the casual theatergoer. Highly recommended.
Don't see it if You can’t handle a 2-hr play, complex staging, black and white photos, and jazz.
Also Thank you, Jaymes Jorsling!!!!
See it if You like awesome choreography and good singing and shows that are a work-in-progress. Turn your brain off.
Don't see it if You don’t like repetitive, insipid lyrics or if you want character development. 2-dimensional. You won’t care that he was the wrong man.
See it if You like immersive shows and you don't mind that they are probably still working on it. Fun! Clever staging.
Don't see it if You don't like dark rooms, nonlinear plots, or Can Can dancing.
See it if You like 5-person shows, hard-working young actors, fast-paced dialogue and if you want to support new playwrights.
Don't see it if You want a sensible plot (it's not), you want to breathe (they never shut up), and if you want believable character development.
See it if You like thought-provoking puzzle plays that don't give you all the pieces. Bess Wohl knows how to write clever dialogue!
Don't see it if You can't handle dark family themes, small plays, or dialogue-driven stories. This is a clever play that is still a work in progress
See it if You like unique setups (3 actors on stage not interacting with each other but talking about interacting with each other) and slow plots
Don't see it if You are distracted by poor Irish accents and you don't like unpolished scripts.
See it if You like Shakespeare and intimate settings and supporting local acting ensembles.
Don't see it if You can't handle a full-on Shakespeare play or if you think Romeo and Juliet are insufferable twits.
See it if You like classical musicals crossed with raunchy comedies. This show tries and largely succeeds in offending everyone. It's hilarious.
Don't see it if You can't handle offensive, crude, blasphemous, raunchy, foul language. You've been warned.
See it if You like works-in-progress and beautiful harmony and unique experiences. And Dave Malloy's strange friends!
Don't see it if You want a conventional musical or a finished work. This needs work! The creator needs to sand off some edges, including in her character.
See it if You like thought-provoking, fast-moving, dialogue-driven plays. It's funny and complex and superbly staged.
Don't see it if You like musicals, because The Ferryman is a play. (Or don't like awful Irish accents that sound Russian.)
See it if You like beautiful singing and creative staging.
Don't see it if Liked Dear Evan Hansen over Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812
