Fetch, Fluffy, Hilarious, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if you like the movie or like teenage girl drama. The music is fun and it's a good night in the theatre.

Don't see it if you don't relate to teenage girls at all.

Fluffy, Delightful, Thought-provoking, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if you want to see a heart warming story with great performers and endless energy. It's really sweet and great night in the theatre!

Don't see it if you are looking for something deep and meaningful. This story skims the feelings surface but in a good way.

Must see, Profound, Great staging, Clever, Refreshing

See it if you want to see what a stage show should be. It's a familiar story put to sexy New Orleans-style music on a set that spirals you to hell.

Don't see it if you want a traditional show where everyone ends up happy in the end.

Me and My Girl
Midtown W
Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Quirky

See it if you want to see another masterful performance by Christian Borle. The ensemble is great and it's a fun evening of theatre.

Don't see it if you want a deep plot. This production was very simple - it would've been better had they had binders in hand like in the past.

Clever, Entertaining, Fluffy, Funny, Great staging

Clever, Confusing, Great singing, Great acting, Hilarious

See it if you are nostalgic for those Jerry days and want to see a well-sung opera interpretation of disfunction.

Don't see it if you are easily offended or want a traditional theatre experience.

Also I LOVED the first act. It was clever, interesting, and hilarious. I ha... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Banal, Slow, Overrated

See it if you want to see the cool way they portray Sven, the young & adult Annas (who are great!), and get a free ticket.

Don't see it if you're expecting a Disney spectacle with lavish sets and an interesting plot and music. The kids were bored in Act II.

The Parisian Woman
Midtown W
Clever, Entertaining, Great acting, Great writing, Intense

See it if you want to see some great writing and good acting that tell an interesting political story. Perfect timing for this show.

Don't see it if you want an elaborate set, flashy staging, or don't want to think.

Enchanting, Entertaining, Great singing, Great staging, Quirky

See it if you’re wanting to be transported to island life where there’s fantastic singing.

Meteor Shower
Midtown W
Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Edgy

See it if you want to be entertained by funny, beautiful people. It's a very interesting play that never lets you get bored.

Don't see it if you don't have a sense of humor and get queasy easily.

Also I found this play to be similar to Sondheim's COMPANY, but without mus... Read more Read less

In & Of Itself
Gramercy
Enchanting, Masterful, Intense, Slow, Thought-provoking

See it if you want to be floored with really cool magic that's part of a story that makes you see yourself in a (possibly) different way.

Don't see it if you want a deep plot, a fast-paced show, or you don't enjoy a neat presentation of magic.

85
Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Intense, Great staging

See it if you want great acting, compelling plot of (dis)functional family dynamics, and a wonderfully staged play.

Don't see it if you are uncomfortable watching a family destroy themselves, or don't like good theatre.

Stuffed
Midtown W
Clever, Funny, Fluffy, Raunchy, Entertaining

See it if you're someone who struggles with weight (too fat to too skinny), and want to hear women bitch about it in an amusing way.

Don't see it if you don't like foul language, food, women with food issues.

Disappointing, Dizzying, Confusing, Slow, Banal

See it if you're curious or just want to see Christian Borle and Jackie Hoffman on stage.

Don't see it if you expect any sort of pure imagination because this production completely lacks in that department. It also lacks consistency.

71
Entertaining, Disappointing, Great acting, Overrated, Slow

See it if you want to see great acting.

Don't see it if you're expecting anything challenging or thrilling.

The Golden Apple
Midtown W
Dated, Great singing, Fluffy, Romantic, Disappointing

See it if you love old musicals and want to hear top vocals and a full orchestra.

Don't see it if you want an interesting plot, good writing, and memorable music. Other than Lazy Afternoon, there's nothing memorable from this score.

Ambitious, Confusing, Dizzying, Disappointing, Quirky

See it if you want to experience a very creative set, perfectly executed sound, and a visually stunning evening.

Don't see it if you enjoy traditional structure to musical theatre; you want a clear plot or memorable music.

The View UpStairs
East Village
Confusing, Disappointing, Edgy, Overrated

See it if you're curious. Also see it if you want to be confused about a story and just want gay content.

Don't see it if you want it to be about the actual event that occurred at the UpStairs Lounge with authentic accents.

85
If I Forget
Midtown W
Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Profound, Thought-provoking

See it if you want to see a very well-written play about real life and how generations handle religion & politics in current America (or early 2000's)

Don't see it if you don't enjoy plays with human connection, family relationships or politics.

Paramour
Midtown W
Entertaining, Edgy, Great staging, Fluffy, Romantic

See it if you like Cirque shows & cool acrobatics but want a "little" more plot and Broadway sounds. As a non-Cirque fan I had a nice night out.

Don't see it if you want your mind to be stimulated by a good plot & good music. It wasn't Broadway & it wasn't Cirque

88
Relevant, Thought-provoking, Ambitious, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if politics mean something to you or you're curious to learn more. This wonderfully puts old vocab into current-day experiences.

Don't see it if you don't like politics and are close-minded into thinking the Constitution doesn't affect you anymore.

Thought-provoking, Refreshing, Great staging, Great singing, Delightful

See it if you want to see how MFL is supposed to be done. Laura Benanti is the perfect actress to play Eliza and the rest of the cast is solid.

Don't see it if you don't like old musicals.

85
Great staging, Ambitious, Entertaining, Masterful, Must see

See it if you want to see a well-done, foreign language production of the most well-known show. Tevye is worth the price of admission.

Don't see it if you don't like Fiddler on the Roof or Yiddish.

Delightful, Entertaining, Great staging, Must see, Masterful

See it if you want to see the definition of "musical theatre" on stage. Every single person on stage, no matter the actor, is perfect and precise.

Don't see it if you don't like musicals. EVERYONE SHOULD SEE THIS PRODUCTION.

See it if you want to see a masterclass on performance by James S. & Brandon U. They are BRILLIANT. They rest of the cast is amazing as is the dancing

Don't see it if you want something flashy with a simple plot, or if you don't like dark plots.

Hey, Look Me Over!
Midtown W
Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Masterful, Funny

See it if you like obscure music from "lesser"-known shows, & if you want to experience the pure joy that is Bob Martin. Perfect surprise ending, too!

Don't see it if you don't care about the history of musicals, want a plot, or if you don't want a wonderful evening.

Entertaining, Funny, Raunchy, Thought-provoking, Delightful

See it if you want to have a fun, silly time. There's nice music, and it's pretty funny.

Don't see it if you're uncomfortable with male nudity, want to hear great voices.

Don't see it if you want to miss out on something truly special.

85
Clever, Ambitious, Entertaining, Great staging, Great acting

See it if you love continuity, a strong ensemble, and Andy Karl.

Don't see it if you don't like musicals or expect a memorable score. The second act isn't as strong as the first, overall.
