Disappointing, Slow, Overrated

See it if You want to see talented singing in a drawn out production.

Don't see it if You want to see a less entertaining cross between something rotten and on the 21st century.

Great staging, Entertaining

See it if You want to see an old favorite movie updated with some timely content and theater self referential jokes. First act is non stop fun.

Don't see it if You are expecting the exact movie plotline. More profanity than I was expecting. Second act loses a bit of steam.

Network (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Relevant, Great staging, Intense, Absorbing

See it if you want to see Cranston in action. Hr is able to age himself with minor adjustments to his facial expression. I was impressed.

Don't see it if You can’t forgive some overacting on the part of other cast members

Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Quirky, Intense

See it if You like stream of consciousness/non-linear productions. Michael C Hall can do no wrong.

Don't see it if You want straight forward story telling. You feel a bit uncomfortable/awkward at times, which serves to make it more thought provoking.

Ambitious, Edgy, Intense

Overrated, Great staging, Rough singing

See it if You like innovative staging and Josh Groban's voice (though he is under utilized).

Falsettos
Midtown W
Dated, Cliched, Great staging

See it if You want to see a great cast, but not used to their full potential. Block is fabulous. Staging is innovative. 2nd act is more substantial

Don't see it if You want fresh material. The opener and march of the falsettos are both head scratchers--as in, "why???"

Great singing, Must see, Entertaining

See it if You want to pretend you're friends with kristin chenowith (cos I do)

Don't see it if You are expecting only upbeat show-stoppers. There were more somber songs than I expected, but fitting for post-election.

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Enchanting, Great singing, Must see

Resonant, Great staging, Great singing, Entertaining
