Absorbing, Delightful, Funny, Great writing, Great acting

See it if You need your fringe festivals. Highly recommend "...waiting", "Michael is black", and "HORSE". PCTF is always great

Don't see it if You don't like supporting local artists

The Present
Midtown W
Strong cast makes long slow script watchable, Absorbing, Great acting, Funny, Slow

See it if you are a fan of Chekhov (i mean it too, the play itself is sloppy but super Chekhov) and want to see Blanchett. Also, dynamite cast

Don't see it if you don't have patience to sit through a long first act where not much happens. You hate Chekhovian theate

Also I'm a big fan of Chekhov and not familiar with Platanov. Clearly, that... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Clever, Funny, Thought-provoking, Great staging

See it if You want to see theatre that is incredibly funny and not easy to explain. STRONG CAST and great script. Don't miss this

Don't see it if You don't like theatre that admits it's theatre. It's pretty meta

The 4 main characters (the guy, the female lead and her valet, and the nimrod) were good. play has 40 minutes of story and highly dated jokes

See it if You want to see a VERY fringe show. It is very silly but not funny

Don't see it if You want to laugh more than a handful of times or if you want a show with a sense of humor that isn't heavy handed puns

Great acting, Funny, Thought-provoking, Edgy, Refreshing

See it if You love good acting and an interesting story. It's very funny and unique (In a good way)

Don't see it if Sodomy scares you, also full front nudity (that is required for this story too). Also many scene changes come close to halting show

87

Don't see it if You don't want a relentlessly lovely and loveable musical.

Confusing, Disappointing, Funny, Great acting, Resonant

See it if You want to see some amazing acting the whole ensemble is strong

Don't see it if You want to see a vision that makes sense. Huge misstep by the director (too many ideas, seriously any of them fleshed out would work)

See it if You want to see an amaking play pop alive. Also this show is a masterclass I'm good acting

Don't see it if You can't see a 4 hour show with 1 intermission . It's the only reason I can't give it a rating in the 90s

American Psycho
Midtown W
Absorbing, Entertaining, Great staging, Great acting, Must see

See it if You want to see nontraditional and heavily 80s influenced musicals done very well and a solid performance from Ben Walker

Don't see it if You want a traditonal.musical, then see Les Miserables (a joke I had to make). It's a really good vulgar daring musical

Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Slow, Confusing

See it if You understand the Yorkshire accent. It's funny and really well acted. Thus is also a slice of life play

Don't see it if You don't understand the accent or like patient plays.

Shuffle Along

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

See it if You want to see a damn near perfect show. Not a weak link, and we saw Audra's uunderstudy. Also amazing choreo

Eclipsed
Midtown W
Absorbing, Edgy, Great acting, Funny, Thought-provoking

See it if You have any interest in the subject matter. The play is actually funny too. This should be noted as it sounds super heavy (it is) and more

Don't see it if For some reason you don't like intense and funny theatre. Show has a stellar cast and is doing amazing stuff on 45th st

One Funny Mother

Banal, Cliched, Excruciating, Slow, Clever

See it if You are a parent. I am not and this WAS NOT for me. For me it was very long for the rest of audience they were cackling at every joke

Clever, Great acting, Original, Quirky, Funny

See it if You want to see a pretty funny play with an original idea, that had nice dramatic moments. Solid acting

Don't see it if Script isn't the best but show is quick. Ending is confusingly vague. Also play is incredibly vulgar (to make that's cool)

In the Secret Sea
Midtown W
Cliched, Confusing, Excruciating, Indulgent, Disappointing

See it if You don't see much theatre. The acting is ok from some. Laughably bad by the smaller female role (seriously I laughed)

Don't see it if You want to see a play where the most important character appears. This play is waiting for Godot if Godot was all they talked about

81
