Indulgent, Slow, Resonant, Historically interesting

See it if You love the public theater and you want to learn more about its history and founding. You love Nelson and how he writes and stages

Don't see it if Want fast paced. Don't care about the public. Don't like shaekespeare. Want Nelson's best work. Are hard of hearing.

Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging, Thought-provoking, Dated

See it if you love Harvey Fierstein (b/c Urie basically imitates him the entire time). If you're interested in the gay NYC experience in 1970s-80s

Don't see it if Fierstein annoys you. You are only seeing a couple shows this season. You don't like revivals. You want it to be fabulous.

Ambitious, Great acting, Clever, Great writing, Masterful

See it if You love plays about power, money, family, and manipulation, with excellent writing and superb acting. Will win the tony in my opinion.

Don't see it if you don't like serious productions, dysfunctional families send you right to therapy, you want a light and comedic piece of theater.

For a previous production
Entertaining, Funny, Indulgent, Quirky, Raunchy

See it if You love a one man show by a fret and animated performer. You love John leguizamo. You love irreverent humor with a heart.

Don't see it if You want great writing or liguizamo at his peak. You are always very serious and cant enjoy low brow humor. You want a GREAT show for the $

Absorbing, Funny, Great acting, Must see, Relevant

See it if You love a great play by a classic playwright interpreted and staged beautifully and with a comedic edge. This is a must see.

Don't see it if you hate august wilson (but are you a monster?!)

Clever, Ambitious, Funny, Slow, Thought-provoking

See it if You love contemporary playwrights and want to see the newest and best. You're open to meta-theater, piercing the fourth wall, pushing yousel

Don't see it if You want to be entertained In a traditional sense. You're not willing to be intellectually challenged but just want to "have fun."

Also Half the theater gave standing ovations and half were asleep. I think ... Read more Read less

Sleep No More
Chelsea
Ambitious, Absorbing, Indulgent, Refreshing, Confusing

See it if You like immersive experiences but not necessarily interactive experiences. You love Macbeth, know the story and characters intimately.

Don't see it if You need the full plot line explained and you can't recognize scenes or vignettes out of order or without language. You won't get anything.

Ambitious, Great writing, Quirky, Thought-provoking, Intense

See it if You like dark humor, you can handle some heartbreak, and you love McDonough. I believe he is one of the best! Great performances, writing...

Don't see it if You want something warm and fuzzy, uplifting and life affirming, generic and child friendly. This is serious stuff.

Disappointing, Slow, Thought-provoking

See it if You are onsessed w Chloe sevigny and you have read about historical context bc I don't think they do an amazing job of placing it.

Don't see it if Have limited time or $ to see things and only want to see great shows. Just ok. Enjoyed fine. Not as bad as reviews but don't recommend.

Oslo (Broadway)
Upper W Side
Absorbing, Great acting, Intense, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if you are interested in the middle east peace process. if you like explosive personalities. if you want to see an interesting & riveting show

Don't see it if What you want is a script that is art. You don't care about the history. You want something short and sweet or lighthearted.

Disappointing, Excruciating, Indulgent, Overrated, Bad writing

See it if You're obsessed w Shawn Wallace and would do anything to see him. His performance is the highlight. set wel done and immersive / intimate

Don't see it if You value strong writing, want an even performance (everyone else terrible), or go to the theater infrequently. I wouldn't pay more than $30

Ambitious, Edgy, Great writing, Quirky, Thought-provoking

See it if You're adventurous and want a challenging experience that will make you think about our anxieties - large and small. Innovative and adventur

Don't see it if You're looking for a traditional plot driven theater experience. If you want easily accessible. If you're looking for 2 hours +

Banal, Disappointing, Indulgent, Bad, Excruciating

See it if You are interested in the history but don't care about terrible writing, mediocre acting, and bad production

Don't see it if You are interested in the history but care that the work stand on its own.

Also I was very excited to see this because of the topic, and I was extreme... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Enchanting, Great acting, Masterful, Must see

See it if You like or love Sondheim. You want to see something we will be talking about for years to come.

Don't see it if You hate Sondheim or art. You are joyless. You don't care about the canon. This will go down in history...

Hamilton (NYC)

Absorbing, Clever, Ambitious, Refreshing, Must see

See it if You are a human being w a mind and soul. Brilliant and just loveable. You can't not love this.

Don't see it if You can't follow fast lyrics or your hearing aid is broken.

Also Best of the best. Deserves praise it has received. Would see it again ... Read more Read less
