Edgy, Great acting, Hilarious, Thought-provoking

See it if you want a superbly acted, fast-paced, slapstick comedy, filled with metaphor and message.

Don't see it if you like your messages delivered in a straight line. Or you object to the occasional fart joke.

Also Imagine Nathan Lane, Julie White, and Kristine Nielsen at their hilari... Read more Read less

Office Hour
East Village
Absorbing, Great staging, Great writing, Thought-provoking, Riveting

See it if ..to see masterful acting by Sue Jean Kim. Wrenching exploration of gun-generated fear, relevant to all of us, unfortunately.

Don't see it if ..one miscast actor spoils a play for you, or if you can't tolerate loud sounds. Otherwise, it's a must.

Great acting, Great staging, Great singing, Thought-provoking, Intelligent

See it if ..you loved the film. This production does it justice and then some. Inspiring, balletic cross-cultural meeting of minds. Amazing musicians

Don't see it if ..for some strange reason you don't want to see Tony Shalhoub at his finest. It's not schlocky, but may tug at a heartstring or 2.

Prince of Broadway
Midtown W

Clever, Hilarious, Intelligent, Must see, Delightful

See it if You want to laugh until your sides ache. Adam Pascal belting his heart out while lying on his back in a ... Oops, almost gave it away. FUN!

Don't see it if Your idea of a fun night at the theater is a 12-hour Chekhov marathon.

Smart Blonde
Midtown E
Thought-provoking, Great acting, Great singing, Delightful, Funny

See it if you love Judy Holliday and fine acting and singing. This is not a juke-box musical. It is a thought-provoking biographical piece with music

Don't see it if you want a kick-up-your-heels jukebox musical.

Ambitious, Clever, Refreshing, Entertaining

See it if ..you think M/for/M is not one of your favorite Shakespeare plays. This refreshing approach tightens up the plot without changing text.

Don't see it if ..you think Shakespeare must always be performed in the traditional classical style.

Intelligent, Masterful, Must see, Funny, Challenging

See it if ..you are a little homophobic (will challenge) or not (will enlighten, touch and, given current climate, frighten). Either way, required!

Don't see it if See it! It's important.

Intense, Must see, Intimate, Great acting, Great singing

See it if you love immersive musical drama in an intimate setting. Sit close; the lighting is awful. Order pie, arrive 40 min early. Don't miss it!!

Don't see it if if you want something light. But even so, seriously, just gird your loins and go! Despite dim lighting, this was my ultimate ST experience.

Also The production was excellent, except for the lighting. I was told that... Read more Read less

Great acting, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Funny, Intelligent

See it if You like new works by emerging playwrights. Fine acting by an ensemble cast. Off-beat, thought-provoking approach to serious life issues.

Don't see it if You need your stories told in a straight line and can't deal with time jumps and symbolism.

Also I really liked these plays -- funny and serious and affecting, full of... Read more Read less

Nice Fish
Brooklyn
Absorbing, Great acting, Intelligent, Original, Refreshing

See it if No if about it. See Mark Rylance every chance you get. Fun play - quirky, episodic - draw a moral from it or don't. Up to you.

Don't see it if You need a play to have a start-to-finish narrative and obvious moral.
