Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Enchanting, Entertaining, Masterful

See it if you can get a ticket!

Don't see it if I think you should see it.

Iphigenia in Aulis
East Village
Great acting, Resonant, Uneven

See it if you love Greek drama; you respect clear and truthful storytelling.

Don't see it if some strange design choices will ruin your night.

John
Midtown W
Absorbing, Quirky, Resonant

See it if you love theater that explores the infinite space between lovers and friends, and envelops you in a sweet and quirky song of loneliness.

Don't see it if you are looking for an action packed plot, or if a couple of slightly saccharine moments ruin a play for you.

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Delightful, Family-friendly, Stunning

See it if you are in the mood for "Broadway" with a capital B; you are taking kids to see a show; you are in the mood to be wowed.

Don't see it if you're in the mood for a more serious drama; big budget Broadway makes you roll your eyes.

The Sound and the Fury
East Village
Ambitious, Great acting, Inventive, Offbeat

See it if you are an ERS fan; you are willing to be taken for a exhilarating and sometimes confusing ride; you don't need plays to make perfect sense.

Don't see it if you want it to be a straightforward adaptation of Faulkner; you don't have good eyesight (the font for supertitles is TINY); you hated GATZ.

Love, Love, Love
Midtown W
Great acting, Cliched, Clever

See it if you love Amy Ryan and you're in the mood for a light, occasionally funny evening.

Don't see it if you're looking for nuance or deep analysis.

The Christians
Midtown W
Slow, Intellectual, Great acting

See it if you like intellectual theater, you are interested in Christian theology.

Don't see it if strong acting and writing without a compelling story to support them are not enough of a reason for you to see a play.

The Flick
West Village
Great acting, Great writing, Lifelike, Quirky, Riveting

See it if you love stories of small, everyday human heartbreaks; watching plays that feel like novels; you want a masterclass in acting from Mr. Maher

Don't see it if you hate hyper realistic dialogue; want a plot driven story; get bored by slow, character driven stories.

80
Clever, Inventive, Interactive, Original

See it if you are down for whatever happens; you like to laugh; you like sometimes sloppy but usually fun antics.

Don't see it if you are looking for a polished comedy; you can't deal with audience/performer interactions; you're in the mood for something serious.

Preludes
Upper W Side
Ambitious, Edgy, Quirky, Original

See it if you're an artist who's suffered failure and writer's block; you like daring theater that's trying something new; you're a Rachmaninoff fan.

Don't see it if you like your musical theater straightforward and do not appreciate experimental approaches; you are an orthodox classical music lover.
