The Inheritance
Midtown W
Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Ambitious, Clever

See it if You like epic story telling by a fresh new voice, a large ensemble cast of very talented actors and are interested in gay history.

Don't see it if You don't like long plays or plays in 2 parts or having to buy 2 sets of tickets. If you can only see 1 part, I recommend the first.

West Side Story
Midtown W
Inventive, Entertaining, Ambitious, Refreshing, Relevant

See it if You are open to a new interpretation of a classic and appreciate a fabulous ensemble cast, powerful choreography and inventive staging.

Don't see it if You do not like new interpretations of classical musicals and are not a fan of video projection as a major part of the set.

Noura
Midtown W
Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you like a strong and original female lead, a new playwright's voice, Iraqi immigrant family humor (a first for me) and dramatic twists.

Don't see it if You don't want to be challenged. This play has really stayed with me and I am so glad that I saw it.

Thought-provoking, Great acting, Funny, Masterful, Resonant

See it if You appreciate great writing, pathos and humor in family dramas. Elaine May's astonishing performance is a must see. Cast is superb.

Don't see it if You are looking for something light-hearted and can not face a play that deals with dementia.

Delightful, Entertaining, Great singing, Great staging, Classic

See it if have ever wanted to see a classic My Fair Lady on Broadway. Wonderful cast, great singing, staging, choreography, sumptuous costumes and set

Don't see it if You are not an American musical fan or do not appreciate a slight twist/update to the Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins storyline.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Great singing, Great writing, Refreshing, Relevant

See it if You love rap and a fresh take on American history and the amazing Lin Manuel Miranda and musicals like Jesus Christ Superstar and Evita.

Don't see it if You don't like rap. I thought the choreography was repetitive and the costumes and set to be visually dull.

Ambitious, Entertaining, Great staging, Masterful, Magical

See it if You are a real Harry Potter fan and/or if you appreciate the highest level of stagecraft and magic.

Don't see it if You don't know the Harry Potter characters and do not like the expense of paying for two plays for the full experience.

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

See it if You liked Angels in America . This interweaves Irish history, politics, humor, tragedy, music and family, Brilliant writing and acting.

Don't see it if You can not sit through a long play. It helps to know a little about the relationship between England and Ireland and the IRA before seeing.

Avenue Q (NYC)

See it if You remember and liked Laugh In or Schoolhouse Rock.SO funny and high energy. Perfect for college students and anyone with dreams of NYC.

Network (NYC)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging, Resonant

See it if You want to see Bryan Cranston give an awe inspiring and intense performance.

Don't see it if You are not a fan of the original movie as it is pretty faithful to the movie. Some of the writing for the female roles seems dated.

The Jungle
Brooklyn
Relevant, Thought-provoking, Great staging, Intense, Timely

See it if You are interested in big, creative, immersive staging and a weaving together of individual stories to convey the current refugee crisis.

Don't see it if You mind sitting on benches and don't want to face disturbing, real life narratives.

Entertaining, Great singing, Thought-provoking, Must see, Moving

See it if You can appreciate a wildly visionary interpretation of Bob Dylan songs. Superb cast and Mare Winningham shines. Sit close if you can.

Don't see it if you are not a fan of depression era themed plays and dislike Bob Dylan songs.

The Dead, 1904
Upper E Side
Clever, Exquisite, Great acting, Masterful, Profound

See it if You appreciate a superb cast, exquisite writing. You experience the play as a guest moving thru rooms in a 19th century mansion. Memorable!

Don't see it if You don't like James Joyce or period dramas or standing and walking some of the time during the play. Tickets without dinner option are fine
