About:  College student who tries to see as much theatre as possible. I’m a bit of a critic but I truly judge theatre on my personal feelings regarding what I just saw before me and not by the track records of the people involved— that can unfortunately cloud the judgments others may have. You will find not... Read more Read less

Great acting, Hilarious, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if I loved this show. I loved it so much I went twice. Truly phenomenal— a masterclass on making a fantastic performance.

Don't see it if Well, it’s closed now, but if you missed it you missed out.

Ambitious, Hilarious, Refreshing

See it if you want a refreshing new musical and book that is actually quite delightful and entertaining. Modern-day Little Shop of Horrors.

Don't see it if you don’t like to have fun, or you hate high school focused musicals in general.

Also I was a major skeptic of this show before a friend offered me a spare ... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Masterful

See it if you want excellent acting from the cast. I forgot I was watching actors on stage. Elaine May is so raw and real in this show. Heartbreaking.

Don't see it if you are not interested in a slice of life play that handles the detereoration of a woman suffering from Alzheimer’s at the end of her life.

Insipid, Slow

See it if I’m a huge Carousel fan and I am extremely disappointed by the cuts to the beautiful score. Go I guess if you’re a fan as well.

Don't see it if You hate cuts to the source material or excessive additions. The dancing doesn’t focus on the story as it is intended.

Entertaining, Somber, Cliched

See it if You grew up watching early 2000s dramas or romcoms because this feels like a strangely somber clash of the cliches in those films.

Don't see it if You want a show that doesn’t leave a lot of open ended questions at the end. The show really dances around deeper themes and topics.

Banal, Excruciating, Insipid

See it if I can’t even think of one reason to see this unless you really want to see a poorly articulated theatrical work. Truly, I am speechless.

Don't see it if Just don’t see it. Please save your money. I can’t even describe the plot to anyone without them getting horribly confused.

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if you want to have a fun, entertaining night at the theatre that will keep you guessing and wholly absorbed for two hours.

Don't see it if you're Ben Brantley :)

Chicago (NYC)
Midtown W
Dated, Entertaining, Quirky, Raunchy

See it if I’m not one for long running shows that I expected to be overrated but I found myself surprised at how well upkept this show is.

Don't see it if You’re bothered by murder, women committing murder, or women committing murder while doing dance routines in their lingerie.

Disappointing

See it if You like dark twists on children’s books, or exploring the darker side of Roald Dahl’s imagination.

Don't see it if You hate watching children be tormented in horrible ways. Also, Act 1 needs so much work while Act 2 is rather strong.

Disappointing

See it if You’re a Jersey Boys-esque fan.

Don't see it if There are better shows on Broadway that will better entertain you than this one, unfortunately.

Avenue Q (NYC)
Midtown W
Dated, Cliched, Disappointing

See it if You love raunchy musicals and want to see a product of the time it was written.

Don't see it if Ave Q suffers FROM being a product of its time. It was shocking when it premiered but now it has lost its appeal.

Afterglow
Midtown W
Excruciating

See it if I really don’t know what to say here, honestly. Excellent acting, terrible writing.

Don't see it if You want to see actors do the best they can with poor material.

Enchanting, Fluffy, Indulgent, Slow

See it if you can see Donna Murphy, who is stellar. Update: Bernadette Peters is beyond all comparison. She is and always will be a star.

Don't see it if You hate long shows without much depth to them.

Waitress (NYC)
Midtown W
Entertaining, Hilarious, Great writing, Great singing

See it if You love a beautiful pop score, feminist writing, and an empowering story.

Don't see it if You hate pie.

Falsettos
Midtown W
Clever, Exquisite, Thought-provoking, Masterful

See it if You love a fantastic show.

Don't see it if You’re allergic to fantastic shows, have no love in your heart, or hate openly sobbing during a show and going through an entire tissue box.

Original, Intelligent, Clever

See it if You're a fan of Sondheim-esque melodies, love british accents, and cleverly done shows.

Don't see it if You don't like fast-paced shows, this one goes by rather quickly. Also, if you hate drag roles.

75
Refreshing, Indulgent

See it if you love the film. It is essentially the film with music— which in my opinion works for Pretty Woman.

Don't see it if you dislike the film. Plain and simple.

Delightful

See it if You want a really fun evening on the town. It’s so delightful. The “Jones” song is the star of the evening in my opinion

Don't see it if You hate musical revues.

Banal, Overrated, Slow, Excruciating, Disappointing

See it if You like shows in the vein of Once and The Band’s Visit. However know those two are far superior to this production.

Don't see it if You value dramaturgical consistency and have a good grasp on common sense. Most of this show is nonsense.

Also This show seems to be trying very hard to be deep and meaningful when ... Read more Read less

Disappointing

See it if You are a diehard Mean Girls/Tina Fey fan.

Don't see it if You want a show that doesn’t do a major disservice to the source material. This show has some really tragic lyric writing.

Slow, Great staging, Ambitious

See it if You are interested in learning about the theatre legend, Sarah Bernhardt. However the show leaves much to be desired.

Don't see it if You don’t like slow shows. This one feels like it lasts a lifetime.

Also Act one is atrocious. Point blank. It is all exposition. Act two howev... Read more Read less

Soho/Tribeca
Absorbing, Intense, Thought-provoking

See it if you are prepared to face the truths of the aftermath that African-Americans face when one of their own is murdered by police.

Don't see it if you are triggered by suicide. It is quite graphic.

Also This is one of the most riveting and deeply intuitive scripts I have h... Read more Read less

Epic, Profound, Masterful, Intelligent, Indulgent

See it if You want a masterclass on excellent immersive staging and storytelling. Wow. It was beautiful.

Don't see it if You’re tired of The Little Mermaid.

Absorbing, Hilarious, Great writing, Resonant, Must see

See it if Where to even begin? This is phenomenal theatre with an excellent and resonant truth behind it. Still thinking about it days later.

Don't see it if You hate one man shows. However, I feel this one is special and won’t disappoint.

60
Funny, Insipid, Overrated

See it if You love the original film.

Don't see it if You want a meaningful theatre experience. This film has so much potential for a musical. Why did ALW have to write it?

Anastasia (NYC)
Midtown W
Banal, Disappointing, Overrated, Insipid, Excruciating

See it if You’re a diehard Anastasia fan.

Don't see it if You are a theatregoer looking for a fantastic show. Too many songs that are forgettable. Poor book writing. The show needs more PURPOSE.

M. Butterfly
Midtown W
Ambitious, Great acting, Slow, Intense

See it if You want to see the amazing work of Jin Ha as Song Liling.

Don't see it if you hate Julie Taymor’s staging. I personally liked it here but didn’t love it enough... I understand why others dislike it.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Clever, Entertaining, Must see

See it if You get a fantastic cast. After the original cast left some of the magic of the work hasn’t been up to par.

Don't see it if You’re Republican.

60
Cliched, Dizzying, Overrated, Slow

See it if You aren’t bothered by cliches, unnessecary plot additions, and the overwhelming and nauseated staging. And have money.

Don't see it if You don’t have the money to see this overpriced and overhyped show.

100
Absorbing, Romantic, Great writing, Resonant

See it if You want to open your mind and enjoy a heartfelt, charming, thought provoking and hilarious play.

Don't see it if You hate Harvey Fierstein in any capacity because his humor is very on-brand and not for everyone.

50
Aladdin (Broadway)
Midtown W
Cliched, Overrated, Slow, Confusing

See it if You're a die-hard Disney fan, have small children, and a lot of money to spend.

Don't see it if You're looking for a good time, because unfortunately, Aladdin disappoints.

Hilarious, Edgy, Must see

See it if You have a sense of humor, are open-minded, and love a night of laughter.

Don't see it if You're easily offended, hate boys who wear pink, or don't have a sense of humor.
