West Side Story
Midtown W
Uncomfortably riddled with sexual misconduct, Absorbing and modern but unfortunately riddled with sexist controversy, Disappointing

See it if You don't care about women or victims of sexual abuse. 1 of the main actors , Ramasar, is a sexual predator.

Don't see it if it bothers you that a cast member who committed predatory sexual behavior against women is in the show & the issue remains unresolved.

Also the rape scene is especially excruciating to watch knowing there is an... Read more Read less

Till We Meet Again
East Village
Clever, Great writing, Funny

See it if you enjoy a well written story with good acting, that starts out slow but captivates you, then catches you with an unexpected twist.

Don't see it if war stories trigger you, if you need an elaborate set, and if don't want to a family story.

Entertaining, Funny, Refreshing

See it if you like a reinvented classic; relevant, fresh and set in Harlem! It's a funny, family-friendly holiday, great for all audiences.

Don't see it if want to regret not having seen it! It's really good; just see it!

The True

Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Great acting

See it if You want to see Edie Falco live- she’s great! If you like politics, especially NYS politics in the 80’s; & an array of funny characters.

Don't see it if You are not interested in politics or if you are looking for fast, full belly laughing throughout the show.

East Village
Thought-provoking, Ambitious, Quirky

See it if you can bear a subtle glimpse into some of what happens to the people of a neighborhood when it becomes popular and is gentrified.

Don't see it if you fear feeling responsible @ gentrification or, you can't stand plays w trans people of color or, you need a plot to be rigidly defined.

Absorbing, Funny, Hilarious

See it if You want to lose yourself in a very funny, completely entertaining story with no dull moments. It's a nice look back at the 80's-rock music.

Don't see it if you want a serious, intellectual show.

Also *We sat in the balcony and the view was obstructed. The set starts at ... Read more Read less

Little Rock
East Village
Thought-provoking, Relevant, Profound, Great acting

See it if A riveting story of how education in the South was painfully de-segregated; a glimpse perhaps into why racism remains stagnant in America.

Don't see it if you are a racist and believe in segregation, see it anyway -you may be convinced otherwise.

See it if u like suberb acting, amazing music, a well written, hillarious story that keeps you anticipating what will unfold next. Don't miss this 1.

Great singing, Raunchy, Thought-provoking, Funny, Ambitious

See it if you don't mind treking to Astoria. If you are in for a good battle of the sexes. If you enjoy a young, somewhat silly, college story.

Don't see it if you don't want to travel to see a show that's so-so. The singing and acting was good but the story went adrift, ending a little convoluted.

Funny, Great staging, Refreshing, Clever, Entertaining

See it if you want to see some really talented kids, singing and playing their hearts out. Also, if you loved the movie and if you love rock music.

Don't see it if you don't like loud rock music or don't like kids performing much.

Absorbing, Delightful, Hilarious

See it if u loved the movie & want a nostalgic look back at the 90's.I was a little worried it might get corny but it was thoroughly enjoyable!

Don't see it if u hate teens & high school stories; if you want to see a show with serious themes; if you don't enjoy great dancing, singing and silly fun.

Quirky, Funny, Disappointing

See it if you love black box theater; love a work-in-progress; don't mind an extremely bare bones set & are willing to ignore very rude staff antics.

Don't see it if you yearn for a beautiful, sparkly holiday-theme set or if you expect to see a well-developed, put-together production.

Also I actually enjoyed the story & ended up caring slightly @the character... Read more Read less

See it if Really great show: excellent dancing-Fosse's finest! great acting, funny story.Glad we finally got @ to seeing this classic master-piece!

Don't see it if ..tourist antics like chair gliding are not for u-I lost count of how many times I got up to let people pass mid-scene; get orchestra seats.

Delightful, Refreshing, Hilarious, Great acting

See it if A real & honest show @gritty 1980’s East Harlem. The block’s quirky characters will have you in stitches & you will fall in love with them!

Don't see it if You are offended by profanity, or you don’t like shows that deal with the dead in a comical way.

Fruit Trilogy
West Village
Absorbing, Great acting, Thought-provoking

Don't see it if You are offended by nudity on stage or profanity; if loud, emotional performances dealing with sexual abuse disturb you.

Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Masterful, Hilarious

See it if you enjoyed the V Monologues; if you enjoy a hillarious, touching, thought-provoking one woman show that deals with healing body and soul.

Don't see it if you don't appreciate one person shows or ones centered in women's empowerment. It may be too racy for younger audiences.

Thought-provoking, Profound, Resonant, Riveting, Masterful

See it if you want to be mesmerized by Rashad. The story was interesting, cast was good, there was lots of humor, and, at the end, Rashad blew me away

Don't see it if you would rather be watching reality television.

Good for Otto
Midtown W
Riveting, Relevant, Refreshing, Profound, Intense

See it if you want to be affected. This play was intense; it deals with the agony of mental illness many deal with and helps the audience empathize.

Don't see it if it may be too intense. Lots of weeping. Despite its' heavy, intense subject, perhaps because of its humor, the show was so refreshing.

Also Part of the story deals with child sexual abuse, it wasn't graphic but... Read more Read less
