Made in America
East Village
Irreverent, Entertaining, Refreshing, Quirky, Immersive

See it if … you want a refreshing night of unexpected entertainment. Use of humor to explore societal issues. Great staging and nice slow reveals.

Don't see it if … you can't laugh at common American stereotypes, or are unwilling to see America from the eyes of foreigners

Absorbing, Entertaining, Great singing, Refreshing, Pop-heaven

See it if you love brilliantly-sung pop music and loud beats and bright lights and an energetic dance-club vibe

Don't see it if you need or want to SIT, or you don't like LOUD environments, or you don't like drag or burlesque.

Mary Jane
East Village
Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Resonant, Relevant, Great writing

See it if you like masterfully written, somewhat slow reveals. Makes you realize that troubles in your own life pale in comparison to fate of others!

Don't see it if you don't like mildly depressing plays about medical issues.

Jerry's Girls
Midtown E
Great singing, Lyrics not memorized, No staging, Not amplified, No narration/context

See it if ... you are Jerry Herman fan and already know his musicals and plots intimately. If you want good singing, and bare bones everything else.

Don't see it if ... you prefer some banter/background for revues. If you prefer that singers don't roll around a music stand with lyrics sheet while singing

Also While singing was good, a bit disappointing that singers were not "off... Read more Read less

Sweetee
Midtown W
Cliched, Disappointing, Banal, Lacked chemistry, Shallow

See it if ... you are ok with an amateurish book and insipid lyrics... if you don't want any depth in the characters or storyline.

Don't see it if you don't like wondering throughout the show what could possibly have enticed the impeccably-credentialed cast/crew to get involved in this

The Hairy Ape
Upper E Side
Dizzying, Intense, Great staging, Epic, Great acting

See it if you love high octane performances, epic staging/unusual venues.

Don't see it if you find it difficult to hear/understand fast-paced dialogue in heavy accents, or if you do not like abstract, meta-physical plays

Radiant Vermin
Midtown E
Quirky, Original, Great acting, Dizzying, Funny

See it if you like farcical comedies with an underlying social commentary, whirlwind pacing, a healthy dose of fantasy, tour de force acting.

Don't see it if you dislike plays that run at breakneck speed, plays that are tinged with supernatural premises, or actors taking on multiple roles/voices.

Fireflies
Chelsea
Great acting, Confusing

See it if you love supporting Black-Queer theatre and stories, and love watching superb acting in a small intimate venue.

Don't see it if you are expecting writing that is expert in terms of plot/character coherence - this play raises more questions than answers

Animal Wisdom
Brooklyn
Great singing, Must see, Masterful, Riveting, Spiritual

See it if you love emotionally-charged, powerhouse vocals, gorgeous harmonies (by band & choir)...intimate staging/lighting...whirlwind, quirky energy

Don't see it if you are uncomfortable with discussions re: religion, dead people... if you dislike fast-paced, offbeat shows

Also Heather Christian is pure dynamite, and riveting to watch. Her band an... Read more Read less

Charolais
Midtown E
Delightful, Funny, Great acting, Great writing, Quirky

See it if you like irreverent, off-the-beaten path plays. Masterfully written/acted. Refreshingly different with just the right dose of suspense/humor

Don't see it if if you don't like solo shows, if you don't like quirky plays, if you don't like heavily-accented performances.

J&K: 1965
Lower E Side
Edgy, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Immersive, Unique

See it if you want a one-of-a-kind experience where you *literally* inhabit the world of the flawed but sympathetic characters, and learn from them.

Don't see it if traipsing around the gritty parks and streets of Lower East and/or the topic of drug addiction disturbs you, or if you want standard theater

The View UpStairs
East Village
Edgy, Great staging, Quirky, Raunchy, Resonant

See it if enjoy edgy, exuberant musicals, sublime lighting and authentic staging, riveting performers.

Don't see it if you are homophobic and/or uncomfortable with actors interacting/sidling up to you in the show

Oslo (Broadway)
Upper W Side
Absorbing, Illuminating, Eye-opening, Great writing, Refreshing

See it if you want fresh insight into a historical milestone event, enjoy well-crafted, witty dialogue, great acting

Don't see it if you do not care about history or political events
