Trainspotting Live
Midtown W
Intense, Edgy, Dizzying, Clever, Great acting

See it if If you liked the movie and you’re in the mood to get down in the mud and really *experience* a raunchy and intense show. Tip: Dress Down.

Don't see it if You have sensitive hearing, get photo-sensitive seizures or anything like that, this is not your show. Also, if you’re easily grossed out.

M. Butterfly
Midtown W
Cliched, Slow, Indulgent, Overrated, Disappointing

See it if You want to see Clive Owen act on stage.

Don't see it if You have other options.

Cruel Intentions
Greenwich V
Entertaining, Funny, Great singing, Clever, Fluffy

See it if You want to be able to sing along with almost every song in a whimsical show that is full of sex and betrayal. Fun times!

Don't see it if Seeing a show in a fully operating restaurant, with waitstaff and busboys occasionally in the way, would not be too much of a distraction.

Also I would like to see what they could do with this show in a larger venu... Read more Read less

Soulless, Disappointing, Banal, Slow, Who funded this?

See it if you like art that is negative and ugly for the SAKE OF being negative and ugly, then this is the show for you. It... is... terrible.

Don't see it if You don’t want to screw up your kids while you waste your money and time.

Also Christian Borle‘s excellent singing should be noted but even he can’t ... Read more Read less

Great acting, Slow, Disappointing, Uncomfortable

See it if You want to see Sally Field give a terrific performance! She is worth the price of admission all by herself.

Don't see it if Long, slow, very uncomfortable pauses in a show that do not add anything to the story or develop the characters would not bother you.

Also Why the creative team made the choices they made, I will never know. C... Read more Read less

Sweat
Midtown W
Cliched, Excruciating, Indulgent, Overrated, Relevant

See it if You like "gritty", depressing, agrivating shows and can get in for free. This is a hugely overrated, waste of time IMHO.

Don't see it if You want to like the main characters or if you want to see real people, not stereotypical caricatures, portrayed on stage.

Also A few of the performances are terrific but they do not save the show. ... Read more Read less

Delightful, Absorbing, Hilarious, Genius, Quirky

See it if You want to laugh your a** of for two hours! Must See for Tim Minchin fans - his wonderfully TWISTED perspective is all over the show.

Don't see it if Goofball, but kind of touching, shows aren't your thing. If you're not into the humor, it could drag a lot for you.

94
Must see, Great singing, Great staging, Epic, Romantic

See it if You would enjoy seeing an amazing, grand opera combined with the very best elements Broadway has to offer. Wonderful!

Don't see it if You want light or quick. It is neither.

The Front Page
Midtown W
Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Absorbing, Great acting

See it if Seeing a highly recognizable cast perform an amusing play with great acting and lots of funny historical references sounds like a fun night.

Don't see it if You don't like shows with stars or are expecting something contemporary.

Drunk Shakespeare
Midtown W
Clever, Entertaining, Raunchy

See it if You like Shakespeare, improv and intimate venues.

Don't see it if You're looking for a serious show

97
Great acting, Masterful, Exquisite, Must see, Great singing

See it if You want to be WOWed by powerful, tremendous singing and equally good acting. This is a truly great show

Don't see it if A show about the downtrodden overcoming adversity does not appeal to you or if you are not into great singing.

75
Entertaining, Funny, Disappointing, Gread lead

See it if You are a fan of the movie and have seen the other big shows already... or if you just want to rock out with some very talented kids!

Don't see it if Having spoken dialog blasted through speakers on the side of the stage would bother you. If you don't own earplugs...ridiculously over-mic'd

70
Great dancing, Bad acting, Entertaining, Fun

See it if You have kids. This is FOR children and seeing it though the eyes of the kids in the audience is what made it fun for me.

Don't see it if It could be excruciating if seen in a snarky mood - great for kids thought

It's Only a Play
Midtown W
Entertaining, Funny, Fluffy, Disappointing

See it if You want to see Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, and F. Murray Abraham in a cute, sometimes very funny play. Not wonderful but a good time.

Don't see it if You are expecting Matthew Broderick's best work. He was overall pretty flat but Nathan Lane was wonderful as always.

Hughie
Midtown W
Great writing, Original, Slow, Disappointing

See it if You are a fan of Forest Whitaker or Eugene O'Neill, love small, intimate theaters, or have a time machine - it's closed already.

Don't see it if Wordy, slightly dated dramas are not your thing. For me it was worth it just to chat Forest Whitaker up in Shubert Alley, nice man.

Something Rotten!
Midtown W
Funny, Overrated, Entertaining, Fluffy, Indulgent

See it if You want a very light, date night kind of show or if you're a big Broadway fan and have seen most other shows already. A Musical saves it.

Don't see it if You are expecting a great show. I was and was disappointed. Would have had a better time if I'd set my expectations lower.

The Humans
Midtown W
Indulgent, Disappointing, Clever, Absorbing, Great acting

See it if you can get a good, cheap ticket and are not expecting too much. Good drama but the effusive praise from the critics spoiled it for me.

Don't see it if You are expecting the play of the year. IMHO it is good but HIGHLY overrated

90
Epic, Intense, Masterful, Must see, Great singing

See it if You will only be in town for a few days, it's Broadway 101. If you enjoy big, epic productions, it is hard to find bigger or more epic shows

Don't see it if You have to sit at the back of the rear mezzanine. The Imperial is huge and you will be a LONG WAY from the action

87
Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent, Entertaining, Thought-provoking

See it if You are a fan of Eugene O'Neill or just a fan of great acting. Everyone is wonderful but Jessica Lange and Michael Shannon are fantastic

Don't see it if You have a short attention span – at almost 4 hours long it would be tough to sit still for people used to 6 second vines.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Delightful, Exquisite, Great writing, Epic

See it if You have a pulse

Don't see it if Loud noises bother you (but the same could be said for every musical)

Blackbird
Midtown W
Great acting, Intense, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if If you like great acting and intense, dramatic story lines

Don't see it if If you are very sensitive about sexual themes

80
Entertaining, Funny, Cliched, Fluffy, Great staging

See it if You are looking for something very light and fun that doesn’t take itself too seriously and isn’t too taxing on the brain. Decent date show.

Don't see it if You are looking for something with depth or more of a plot than you’d find in the pilot episode of a sit-com.

92
Entertaining, Hilarious, Quirky, Raunchy, Clever

See it if You want to experience a hilarious and fun-filled drag show with some very good singing and raunchy humor!

Don't see it if Seeing a drag show’s not your thing or if people poking fun at Christmas and Hanukkah would offend you.

Junk
Upper W Side
Disappointing, Great acting, Intelligent

See it if You love high-stakes, financial dramas and do not mind some preachiness in your art.

Don't see it if If you do not like financial dramas, this would bore you. This is all about finance, politics and morality.

Also Some terrific performances by the cast and a cool set make this show a... Read more Read less

Avenue Q (NYC)
Midtown W
Must see, Hilarious, Refreshing, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if You want to laugh for an hour and a half at an outrageously funny, Sesame Street for grown-ups. Great OB theater, too.

Don't see it if You wouldn't enjoy a puppet show with a lighthearted look at adult themes.

Amelie
Midtown W
Disappointing, Fluffy, Quirky, Enchanting, Entertaining

See it if You are a big fan of Phillips Soo or just want to see a cute, light, little show. There is no "there there" but it is a fun 90 minutes.

Don't see it if You are a big fan of the movie and are looking for the same magic. Something's missing here...

Also I dare you to remember this show 30 minutes after leaving the theatre.... Read more Read less

Present Laughter
Midtown W
Great acting, Entertaining, Clever, Funny, Dated

See it if You are a fan of classic Noel Coward comedy, Kevin Kline or HIMYM, this the show for you. If you want to see a comedy master up-close.

Don't see it if Seeing the play version of a black and white movie isn't for you. If you don't enjoy things that are "dated" or wordy.

1984 (Broadway)
Midtown W
Relevant, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Intense, Clever

See it if You enjoy dark, distopian "thinkers" or think Snowden basically did the right thing. You want to see Olivia Wilde's super-solid B'way debut.

Don't see it if You have photosensitive seizures, etc or are too jarred by sudden, loud noises. This is a ride for the senses. Also, there's the blood...

Cats
Midtown W
Clever, Enchanting, Great dancing, Great singing, Must see

See it if You enjoy great singing and dancing or just want to have a good time. It is a truly unique experience & in an intimate theatre.

Don't see it if You are looking for a plot or would not enjoy 2 hours of dancing and singing for the sake of it.

Spamilton
Midtown W
Hilarious, Intelligent, Original, Refreshing, Great writing

See it if Seeing a HILARIOUS & intelligent spoof of Broadway gems sounds good. I actually laughed until I cried! Funniest end-to-end show since Morman

Don't see it if If you're not already familiar with Hamilton – at least the cast album - you would miss half the jokes. The other half are about classics.

92
Chicago (NYC)
Midtown W
Must see, Raunchy, Entertaining, Vaudevillian, Great singing

See it if You have not seen it before and are a fan of B'way musicals. This is a must see for the not-too-easily offended. A great time!

Don't see it if The thought of sitting through 2 sex-fueled hours of show makes you uncomfortable. (But everyone else should love it!)

92
Delightful, Entertaining, Absorbing, Hilarious

See it if You want to have a terrific time seeing a wildly entertaining show - great for date night!

Don't see it if You do not like whimsical comedies

Simon Says
East Village
Intense, Indulgent, Cliched, Dumb writing

See it if You have extremely low expectations, plot-wise, and can turn your B.S. detector off for 1+ hours. The acting is not bad.

Don't see it if You are looking for good writing or a believable plot. I "suspended disbelief" and still couldn't buy it... & I'm easy to please.

93
Enchanting, Masterful, Romantic, Must see, Great singing

See it if You love epic, larger-than-life stage productions (perfect venue) or are a fan of Rogers and Hammerstein. Brilliant production of a classic

Don't see it if You can only see history through the eyes of the present.

84
The Gin Game
Midtown W
Absorbing, Great acting, Clever

See it if You are a fan of James Earl Jones for Cicily Tyson and enjoy a straight, no-frills drama

Don't see it if You are looking for a light, fun-filled show

92
Absorbing, Clever, Delightful, Great acting, Original

See it if You love prime numbers, 90° angles, unique perspectives and wonderful performances. A delight! Saw the understudy as the lead, fantastic!

Don't see it if I'm at a loss for reasons not to enjoy this show... Go see it

93
Entertaining, Hilarious, Irreverent, Must see, Funny

See it if You want to laugh your a** off for 2 hours! Funniest play I've ever seen!

Don't see it if You might be offended by strong language and "blasphemy"

85
Hand to God
Midtown W
Entertaining, Hilarious, Quirky, Refreshing, Edgy

See it if You love hilarious and raunchy shows. Overall not as funny as Mormon but has the funniest 10 minutes I have EVER seen

Don't see it if You have little kids with you, or are easily offended by anything

77
American Psycho
Midtown W
Funny, Raunchy, Entertaining, Relevant

See it if You enjoy raunchy, at times hilarious musicals. Not the greatest play on its own but was a wonderful, fun experience

Don't see it if You are easily offended or if you want to bring children to the theater. Not appropriate for little ones

79
Himself and Nora
West Village
Romantic, Entertaining, Original, Clever

See it if you are a fan of James Joyce or if you enjoy a good, romantic musical

Don't see it if you want to stick to more mainstream, big shows

85
Enchanting, Entertaining, Romantic, Delightful, Great staging

See it if You like romantic musicals or need a great "date night" show to see. Also see if you enjoy great dancing and Gershwin

Don't see it if you are looking for a lot of substance. It is light
