Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Confusing, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you enjoy a play in a different language, and that is based on a Greek Classic.

Don't see it if you want to have some easy entertainment, and if you do not like seeing nudity on the stage.

Also Very interesting, but clocking in at two hours, it can seem a bit long... Read more Read less

Mlima's Tale
East Village
Entertaining, Great acting, Absorbing, Intelligent, Great writing

See it if you enjoy magical realism, but also want a serious play. Very amazing acting.

Don't see it if you want something light-hearted, or if you do not like straight serious plays.

Also By far my favorite thing I have seen at the Public. I tried to go on S... Read more Read less

Enchanting, Entertaining, Great singing, Great staging, Masterful

See it if you really enjoy good music and want to see absolutely spectacular staging. The staging, singing, and writing are beautiful and magical.

Don't see it if you don't want to see one of the best revivals this year, or if you do not like Caribbean music. Also, it can get dark and emotional.

Also Go see this show. It is impressive. If you are unsure if you want to s... Read more Read less

Rocktopia

Great singing, Ambitious, Cheesy, Slow, Entertaining

See it if You want a fun rock concert. It has some great talent and good vocals. If you like crossover genres and/or older rock music, you should go.

Don't see it if You want a Broadway show. This is a concert, and it is presented as such. Also, if you do not like loud shows.

Also I loved it, no doubt about that. But I do see its flaws. Make sure you... Read more Read less

Clever, Hilarious, Great singing, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you like revivals of classics, or if you like any of the actors. It is definitely worth seeing, even if those 2 reasons don't apply to you.

Don't see it if you want a modern day show. If you don't like classics, this is not for you. You probably should be a fan of love stories too.

Also If you are a fan of theatre this is a definite must.... Read more Read less

Delightful, Great staging, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you have children. Children will adore this musical, but it also won't leave adults bored. Also see it if you enjoy mindless entertainment.

Don't see it if you dislike mindless entertainment, or if you are looking for something profund. If you did not like the TV series you will not like this.

Also This musical was very fun. If you grew up with the TV show, then you w... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Great writing, Thought-provoking, Profound, Relevant

See it if You are a theater fan. This is a must-see for anyone that loves an amazing story and an amazing score.

Don't see it if You are not willing to cry, because you will, or if you aren't prepared to deal with the topics discussed in the play (like death).

Also Dear Evan Hansen is an amazing production, with amazing writing. It is... Read more Read less

Don't see it if You are scared of violence, helicopters, or if you are not comfortable with limited clothing and sexual situations.

Anastasia (NYC)
Midtown W
Delightful, Enchanting, Great singing, Fun, Absorbing

See it if you like very fun and whimsical musicals. If you liked the movie, you may like this as well.

Don't see it if you did not enjoy the movie, or if you do not want to see a Broadway Musical based off of an animated film. It is not incredibly profound.

Also Anastasia is one of my all-time favorite stories. This musical exceede... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Emotional, Intelligent, Resonant, Dated

See it if you enjoy a play that deals a lot with social and romantic issues. Lauren Ridloff's performance is reason enough to go see it.

Don't see it if you want something lighthearted, or if you do not like old romantic dramas. It is a bit dated.

Also The other actors are a bit mediocre when put next to Lauren Ridloff, b... Read more Read less

The Low Road
East Village
Absorbing, Edgy, Resonant, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if You want a play that will really make you think. It is complex and very fast moving. Fact filled, but not preachy. Script is incredible.

Don't see it if You want simple entertainment. This is a very intelligent play that includes many facts and complexities.

Also Chukwudi Iwuji stole the show completely. His acting alone made our ti... Read more Read less

During previews
Great staging, Great acting, Masterful, Riveting, Must see

See it if you want really good theatre. This is by far the best piece of theatre I have ever seen. Also if you like Harry Potter, you must go.

Don't see it if you want something that is not "magical." It is fantasy, and if you want something more real, than this is not the play for you.

Also This show is amazing. Being at the first previews was a lot of fun, an... Read more Read less

The Parisian Woman
Midtown W
Absorbing, Great acting, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Intelligent

See it if you really like Uma Thurman (or any of the actors), or if you really enjoy a well thought out play. It is highly enjoyable and overall great

Don't see it if you like Trump, or if you are not willing to think too much. This show will really get you thinking. It is complex.

Also Mature themes. Not appropriate for children. Maybe 13+ if your 13/14 y... Read more Read less

Waitress (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Delightful, Relevant, Great writing, Entertaining

See it if you enjoy a fun, light-hearted show that has some heavy elements in it. It is very cute and a lot of fun.

Don't see it if if you are in the mood for anything past some simple fun entertainment. It can get raunchy at times, so be wary of that for the children.

Also Definately be wary for the children. Mature adult themes, and can be a... Read more Read less
