Entertaining, Funny, Intelligent, Quirky

See it if you adore Mark Rylance and are willing to see him in a play that's not as wonderful as he deserves.

Don't see it if You have no patience for whimsy or for a plot that doesn't go as deep as it means to.

Entertaining, Great acting, Intelligent

See it if you appreciate the intelligent voice of a (previously) unknown female Irish playwright and enjoy acting by a small cast playing many parts.

Don't see it if you require obvious, insistent plotting and slam-bam endings.

96
Absorbing, Entertaining, Funny, Great staging, Great writing

See it if You like the old-fashioned, happy-making all singing all dancing all happy-ending type musicals.

Don't see it if you can't go with the flow and be joyful even if it isn't Sondheim (who I adore).

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Overrated

See it if you love The Wizard of Oz and are 14 years old.

Don't see it if you are above 14 years old and want to hold onto your memories of The Wizard of Oz, which can't be beat.

For a previous production
Absorbing, Delightful, Hilarious, Clever

See it if you enjoy slapstick and fabulous comic timing and silliness.

Don't see it if you need detailed characterization along with your laughs, and if you think Noises Off did it all and nobody can top it.

85
Avenue Q (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Absorbing, Funny, Refreshing

See it if you enjoy surprises and puppets and original ideas about love and sex.

Don't see it if you hate puppets and think nothing good can come out of their mouths.

81
Clever, Edgy, Hilarious, Intelligent

See it if you love irreverence and wit and don't mind attacks on religion. You will laugh and be unable to stop.

Don't see it if you take religion (yours or others) seriously and don't want to see it made fun of.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Ambitious, Great staging, Great writing, Intelligent

See it if you're open to a history "lesson" told in vivid, fast-moving songs and choreography. A fresh new look at the founding fathers & mothers.

Don't see it if You have a closed mind about the founding of our nation.

Indecent
Midtown W
Absorbing, Great staging, Great writing, Intense, Relevant

See it if You enjoy thoughtful, passionate playwriting and acting about serious subjects.

Don't see it if You don't want to see any Holocaust plays and if you dislike complex playwriting.

Jamaica
Harlem
Absorbing, Great singing, Refreshing

See it if you like not slick or fancy but sincere shows, and if you appreciate the genius of Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg, who wrote it.

Don't see it if You demand Broadway slickness and perfect sound quality and famous names who are frequently over-rated.

100
Absorbing, Clever, Ambitious, Great acting

See it if you enjoy E.E. Cummings and fantastic poetry set to lively, and often poignant music.

Don't see it if you have a short attention span and need everything spelled out and don't appreciate intelligent whimsy.

Present Laughter
Midtown W
Absorbing, Entertaining, Great acting, Great writing

See it if you like wit mixed with slapstick and Kevin Kline getting as many laughs as in humanly possible in thirty seconds.

Don't see it if you don't like wit mixed with slapstick and think the Brits are overrated.

94
For a previous production
Absorbing, Great acting, Great singing, Great writing, Intelligent

See it if you want to see a subtle, thoughtful, and charming song with fine acting and writing.

Don't see it if you need obvious story lines and loud songs and gimmickry of any kind.

71
Entertaining, Great staging, Overrated

See it if you love animals in any form whatsoever and want to see fabulous puppetry and staging and don't care if the songs are banal.

Don't see it if you demand originality in lyrics and music and care that the second act isn't a letdown after the brilliant first act.

68
Funny, Great staging, Disappointing, Overrated

See it if you don't have high standards for musicals and can enjoy busy staging an and a very fine performance by Andy.

Don't see it if you expect cleverness or wit or any of the touching scenes you remember from the movie. Stay home and watch the movie and you'll be happy.

78
Great staging, Overrated, Relevant

See it if you want to be "uplifted" by decent-behaving Canadians, and don't mind if the songs and story are a bit trite.

Don't see it if you are expecting brilliance and originality. This is a bread and butter story told well, but it's still not terribly fresh.

97
Clever, Delightful, Funny, Great writing

See it if you like funny and surprising plots about serious issues, such as women's rights and marriage.

Don't see it if you have no sense of humor and like to root for just one character in a play.

93
Absorbing, Clever, Ambitious, Great acting, Great singing

See it if You love Sondheim and brilliant acting and singing.

Don't see it if You are queasy about violence, and if you lack a sense of humor.
