Ambitious, Great singing, High energy

See it if You want to hear great singing by leads and ensemble. You want a high energy musical.

Entertaining, Funny, Great staging, Must see, Great singing

See it if You love big, showy golden age musicals that fill the stage with a fabulous voices, costumes, choreography and staging! Fabulous!!! See it!

Don't see it if You want serious theater, a big production, or aren't interested in facts (about alcohol and chocolate) combined with a Capella carols

Funny, Inconsistent, Raunchy

See it if You're a New Yorker who knows a bit of the past 50 years of NYC history; you don't mind laughing hard then waiting a bit for the next laugh

Don't see it if You don't know NYC, don't like improv, dislike politically incorrect or raunchy jokes.

Waitress (NYC)

Cats
Midtown W
Entertaining, Great dancing, Unique, Great ensemble singing

See it if You like fabulous ensemble dancing, an immersive production (set/lighting/costumes) or saw Cats as a kid - it's mostly true to the original!

Don't see it if Don't like long dance scenes, need a clear plot line, or don't want to see felines as the only characters

80
The Last Ship
Midtown W
Entertaining, Cliched, Original music

See it if You want to see a solid first musical by Sting with a simple, yet interesting, story setting (and it goes on tour)

Don't see it if You want a modern, unique storyline, or a Sting concert. It really is a musical!

60
Slow, Relevant, Great singing

See it if You want to hear a small but strong ensemble do a great job, both vocally and playing multiple parts.

Pacific Overtures
East Village
Absorbing, Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Great singing, Great staging

Must see, Great writing, Resonant, Moving, Tears and laughs

See it if You want a strong original script that lifts spirits based on real stories, presented by a cohesive ensemble cast and simple, good staging.

Don't see it if You cannot hear stories related to 9/11. While it focuses on what happened in Gandor, it still covers heartbreaking topics.

96
For a previous production
Hilarious, Entertaining, Cliched

See it if You want to laugh a lot! Hilarious nonstop physical comedy and precision timing in this predictable, yet still VERY funny production(London)

Don't see it if You don't like physical comedy, you don't want to laugh, you didn't like Noises Off, you want something dark or thought-provoking

Relevant, Great singing, Absorbing

See it if You are willing to be moved by a relevant story line, and want to hear Ben Platt and Rachael Bay Jones deliver great performances

Don't see it if You are looking for a golden age musical style or want to leave happily tapping your toes - this is a true & well done contemporary musical

Delightful, Funny, Enchanting, Great tap!, Beautiful score

See it if You love the golden age of musicals, Irving Berlin's songbook, fabulous tap, great acting and singing, or like feeling happy! Going again!!!

Don't see it if You only like modern or moody, want a carbon copy of the movie (same theme updated well), or you find golden age too sappy to be enjoyable.

Indulgent, Slow, Great singing

See it if You haven't seen it yet and want to hear beautiful voices, including a true soprano, not a belter

Don't see it if You like fast paced, modern storylines or dislike classical voices

92
Great acting, Relevant, Poignant, Bittersweet

See it if You want to see two actors give beautiful and convincing performances, you want to feel like you are peering in a window on real life.

Don't see it if You want a happy escape from reality, or fast-pacing.
