King Kong (NYC)
Midtown W
Slow, Overrated, Dull

See it if You want to lose hours of your life. Songs are terrible, singing isn't great. Even the ape wasn't impressive. Only the LED backdrop was good

Don't see it if You want quality a story, and product. I feel sorry for the singers and dancers who are pouring their hearts out - Little to work with.

Days of Rage
Midtown W
Intense, Resonant, Thought-provoking

See it if You like history and thinking about the turbulent 60's. It's a so-so story with a good twist and a nice wrap-up.

Don't see it if You are looking for the best drama you've ever seen. It's a nice Off-Broadway production with young earnest actors.

The Ferryman (NYC)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Absorbing, Edgy

See it if You like stories about families and struggles. Historically interesting and a different perspective on things. Long but not boring.

Don't see it if The accents can sometimes be tough to understand but most are authentic. It's intense and not fluffy. It's a challenging story but good.

85
Delightful, Great singing, Cliched

See it if You like a good old fashioned musical. The costumes are great. Leo Norbert Butz steals the show. Nothing original, just old time comfort.

Don't see it if You want something deep and thought provoking. It's just a fun old musical.

80
Delightful, Great singing, Great staging

See it if You like great singing, old standards and performers who put their heart and soul into their performance. More of a concert show than play.

Don't see it if You want a continuous story along with a performance. An enjoyable 90 minutes of song, but not for you if you want anything other than fun.

Travesties
Midtown W
Slow, Disappointing, Tedious

See it if You want lots of dialogue that just goes on and on and on. It made me think what were the other plays in '76 that this dirge won the Tony?!

Don't see it if You like lively dialogue. It's overly ambitious in its tone and staging. Comes across as more tiresome than entertaining.

The Parisian Woman
Midtown W
Clever, Timely, Funny, Thought-provoking

See it if You like political humor. It had a nice twist that made the play more interesting. It had a slow start but a nice pick-up in the middle.

Hot Mess
Midtown W
Ambitious, Fluffy

See it if You want to see people try. The writing was obvious and predictable. But an "E" for effort. Reminded me of a high school production.

Don't see it if You want to see real struggle and angst. I know many people who are more of a hot mess than this. It is only an hour, so there is that...

Junk
Upper W Side
Absorbing, Great staging, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if You want to learn more about economic issues. The show contained a lot of information. It was fast paced and made you think. Challenging.

Don't see it if You are looking for something "happy go lucky". It takes thought.

58
Confusing, Dated, Indulgent, Slow

See it if you want to see Elizabeth McGovern. The messages are familiar but I understood it all better after reading an English teaching guide.

Don't see it if you want a clearly entertaining show. It's old and stogy.

1984 (Broadway)
Midtown W
Disappointing, Excruciating, Violent

See it if You like gratuitous violence and movies. The use of film was interesting but times you felt like you were at a movie. It was confusing.

Don't see it if You don't want to be upset. The amount of violence at the end was unnecessary and took away from the cerebral nature of the story.

95
Ambitious, Entertaining, Great staging

See it if You love Sweeney and Steven Sondheim music. I've seen the show about 10 times and this was one of the best performances I have seen.

Don't see it if You don't like small spaces and actors up close to you.

90
Entertaining, Great singing, Resonant

See it if You like the music of Carole King and appreciate her life and times. It was a great look back at how her career was formed.

Don't see it if You don't like 50's or 60's music or if your knowledge of her begins after the album Tapestry.

Midtown W
Disappointing, Slow, Not funny

Disappointing, Great singing, Slow

Funny, Entertaining, Quirky

See it if You just want to have fun. It is a little corny and has some cliches, but it's a good time. The characters are fun and you'll leave happy.

Don't see it if You don't like morality lessons, stories about homosexuality and want a deep meaning. It requires you to lighten up and unwind.

Absorbing, Intense, Must see, Thought-provoking, Great writing

See it if You like timely drama, well acted, with "real" dialogue. It is many faceted with many issues included. You will think about it for days.

Don't see it if You don't want to think about issues of race, diversity, policing, marriage and families, or anything else heavy. As I said - multi-faceted.

The Nap (Broadway)
Midtown W
Funny, Fluffy, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy a light show. The story isn't unique, but the humor is good. Nice staging. The ending is abrupt though. It could've been stronger.

Don't see it if You have trouble understanding English accents. The story won't make you think as it's not deep, just a casual comedy.

77
Funny, Entertaining, Thought-provoking

See it if You like to laugh at the things people do. The immature play of the characters was a bit annoying, but overall it's entertaining.

Don't see it if You don't like to think about stereotypes and relationships between family members. The theater seats are very uncomfortable.

Great singing, Great staging, Fun

See it if You loved disco and want to hear great songs again. The costumes are clever and so is the intertwining of the "Donnas". It's just fun.

Don't see it if You want a story that doesn't leave you want to do a Google search for more information. If you don't the songs - don't go.

Great singing, Romantic, Traditional, Great dancing

See it if You like old time, classic, musical theater. It's not timely, but it's the movie come to life. Singing and dancing are great. A bit long.

Don't see it if You don't like operatic voices or musicals. Not relevant to today, but a classic.
