The Exes

Great acting, Delightful, Funny

See it if ...you enjoy a good comedy about relationships, past and present.

Don't see it if ...you'd rather see a serious drama or a fun splashy musical.

Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you want a wonderful theater experience; ... .you want to see Jeff Daniels in a special role as Atticus Finch from a great meaningful book

Don't see it if ...you expect a Broadway musical comedy. It certainly is not that, but don't miss this show!

The Ferryman (NYC)
Midtown W
Confusing, Disappointing, Great acting

See it if ...if you like long boring plays with an Irish accent and story. If you want to see a Tony winner.

Don't see it if ...you expect a wonderful drama. This isn't it. ...if you can't sit for 3 1/2 hours with just one intermission. I almost fell asleep.

Delightful, Entertaining, Enchanting

See it if ..you loved the original;...you know and love Cole Porter music, and want to hear it again.

Clever, Enchanting, Funny, Should have been a big broadway hit

See it if you love Lerner's work; you enjoy very clever comedy with wonderful music by Lane

Don't see it if you are expecting a big splashy musical (though Mamma Mia is that). It's a great mini-musical with wonderful characters.

Two's a Crowd
Midtown E
Fun show, but like a tv sit-com, Delightful, Entertaining, Funny

See it if ..you know and/or like Rita Rudner; ...you want to laugh out-loud at lines and jokes.

Don't see it if ... you expect a"real" musical comedy. Too short, in a way. Better for a TV sit-com or community theater

Also The comedy is very good, but the music is unnecessary.
