The Liar
East Village
Great writing, Funny, Entertaining, Quirky

See it if You're a David Ives fan or you like classic mistaken identity comedies rewritten in modern verse.

Don't see it if You have trouble following along with rhyming verse or paying close attention to characters' names.

Resonant, Entertaining, Delightful, Great dancing, Reflective

See it if you are looking for an introspective and rejuvenated Fiddler. Beautiful dancing that recalls Robbins’s original. Production gave me chills.

Don't see it if you don't care for Bartlett Sher's particular style of direction.

Dry Powder
East Village
Divisive, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Fine

See it if you're interested in a debate over capitalism and morality. Well-acted, sharp writing with good one liners, overall the play felt sterile

Don't see it if You are turned off and/or bored by financial jargon.

Southern Comfort
East Village
Disappointing, Fine, Cliched

See it if you're excited by a new musical dealing with the trans community. Horrible book, lackluster score, song "Barbara" was the highlight.

Don't see it if you're expecting a piece that is comparable in quality to the documentary.

Enchanting, Charming, Funny, Great singing, Masterful

See it if you love a brilliant score, beautifully sung, with a well paced feel-good plot. Just an absolutely charming production.

Don't see it if you are not interested in classic musicals. If you can look beyond this, you can still enjoy a great cast, set, lighting, and orchestra.

Thought-provoking, Riveting, Refreshing, Great staging, Must see

See it if You are looking for an intense and challenging production. When stripped of all excess, this revival presents the beauty in the text.

Don't see it if If you are interested in Broadway's more conventional offerings, not a fan of critical thinking, or are a stickler for accents *eyeroll

Masterful, Clever, Entertaining, Delightful, Great staging

See it if You appreciate music by the Gershwins, love dance, or enjoy a show with beautiful design elements.

Don't see it if You are looking for something more contemporary or traditional musical, and/or hate gorgeous dance sequences.

Wolf in the River
Soho/Tribeca
Intimate, Imitative, Transgressive, Intense, Energetic

See it if you'd like a streamlined castoff of a Philip Ridley play. Positives are the resourceful lighting and staging.

Don't see it if an exercise in creating transgressive theater sounds like a bad idea.

Absorbing, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Meditative

See it if you are looking for a beautifully written, well-acted portrait of an american family in a time of transition and change.

Don't see it if you are hungry....smells delicious ;)

Her Requiem
Upper W Side
Ineffective, Insipid, Fine, Pass, Forced

See it if You'd like to support LCT3. Well-written, but completely ineffective. Characters that lack any chemistry, script seem to lack needed editing

Don't see it if you are uninterested in a play that lacks focus and reads as an unorganized jumble of ideas. Keilly McQuail was the highlight.

The Humans
Midtown W
Good writing, Great staging, Absorbing, Relevant

See it if looking for a divisive, yet engaging new work. Depicts a very real portrait of family life, through its haunting accuracy I felt left cold.

Don't see it if you aren't willing to immerse yourself into the material.

Fluffy, Quirky, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if you are looking for non-stop whimsy. This is a buoyant show with fun songs, which aren't exactly plot-driven.

Don't see it if you are unexcited by a twee style jamboree.

Old Hats
Midtown W
Clever, Dated, Fluffy, Slow, Pass

See it if You like old-timey clowning, or are looking for an occasional mindless laugh.

Don't see it if You have read previous reviews and thought it would actually be funny, or are under 65.
