A New Brain
Midtown W
Quirky, Original, Confusing, Disappointing, Weird

See it if you enjoy off-beat shows and are willing to try something different.

Don't see it if you are a fan of more traditional musicals.

A Delicate Balance
Midtown W
Banal, Confusing, Excruciating, Slow, Boring

See it if you are a huge play buff and tend to go see shows because they feature big name actors.

Don't see it if you don't like shows in which the characters complain and bicker endlessly. My least favourite show to date.

Cliched, Great staging, Disappointing, Fluffy, Enchanting

See it if you are looking for a family show. The female lead delivers a great performance. Beautiful ending scene

Don't see it if you aren't interested in family-friendly theatre. The show is pretty ordinary and lacks excitement.

Resonant, Great acting, Dated, Classic, Cliched

See it if you are a fan of the original Fiddler or you identify with or want to learn more about Jewish culture.

Don't see it if you are looking for an upbeat musical or aren't interested in historically-based shows.

Exquisite, Intense, Profound, Relevant, Riveting

See it if you want to promote accessibility in theatre. The production beautifully and seamlessly incorporates ASL. The show critiques society.

Don't see it if you aren't a fan of diverse musical stylings or do not like shows with "adult themes."

Entertaining, Overrated, Romantic, Disappointing, Great music

See it if you love ABBA; you are a fan of flashy musicals.

Don't see it if you like more substantive stories or are not a fan of the film.

Dames at Sea
Midtown W
Funny, Hilarious, Great dancing, Cliched, Lively

See it if you are impressed by tap dancing. This show was hilarious and the cast gave stellar performances. Flashy and fun.

Don't see it if you aren't interested in dance-heavy shows. This show can be cliche and dated as it was written quite a while ago.

Something Rotten!
Midtown W
Hilarious, Funny, Entertaining, Must see, Delightful

See it if you are looking for a light-hearted musical. Great show-stopping numbers and hilarious songs.

Don't see it if you aren't interested in pun-based humor or are looking for a more serious show.

Noises Off
Midtown W
Quirky, Entertaining, Funny, Cliched, Disappointing

See it if you are a fan of physical or slap-stick comedy. The entire audience was in stitches when I saw it.

Don't see it if your brand of humor is more witty or cerebral.

Great acting, Great staging, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Riveting

See it if you are interested in visually stimulating and cerebral plays. This show is very educational and thought-provoking.

Don't see it if you are not a fan of plays, especially longer ones.
