See it if You want to see a contemporary epic exploring the history of finance through a personal, biographical lens. Or you like creative staging

Don't see it if You are easily bored by language-driven theater. The artists do wonders to keep it engaging, but it is a 3 hour play about finance

Thought-provoking, Profound, Intense, Great writing, Great acting
October 15th, 2021

See it if You enjoy challenging, topical, thought-provoking drama. Like the sound of a contemporary riff on Waiting for Godot

Don't see it if You're looking for mindless fun. You are extremely triggered by issues of racial justice.

Thought-provoking, Political drama, Funny
April 18th, 2019

See it if You're interested in an artistic exercise to get inside Hillary Clinton's head. Never having been in their myself it was believable.

Don't see it if You want a strong political message out of it. You want high stakes and lots of excitement.

April 18th, 2019

See it if You have a dark sense of humor and a decent familiarity with Shakespeare (otherwise its hard to make sense of some of the more serious bits)

Don't see it if You don't like blood and gore on stage. Or you don't like penises and fart jokes. Or you don't like verse.

March 2nd, 2019

See it if You like Sam Shepard or either of these two lead actors. Both do really great, exciting work and the play is really done justice here.

Don't see it if You're not into watching male power dynamics play out for two hours.

Excruciating, Slow, Resonant, Good acting
March 2nd, 2019

See it if You want to watch the story of an old lady becoming a weight dragging down the rest of her family over many years as she slowly decomposes

Don't see it if You've already has enough of that in your life, as many people certainly have.

March 2nd, 2019

See it if You like epic, ambitious plays. Or family plays. Or Irish stories.

Don't see it if You can't sit through something that's three hours long.

Great acting, Fun, Light, Philosophical
March 2nd, 2019

See it if You want to see these stars have fun and show their stage craft and magnetism. Bobby Cannavale is especially fun to watch here.

Don't see it if You want to see a great or deep play. While there are some interesting idea here, this production is mostly just entertaining and fun.

Disappointing, Great acting, Intelligent, Sloppy writing
October 12th, 2018

See it if You are interested in watching discussions of Hamlet. Janet McTeer is really good in role of disappointing complexity.

Don't see it if You want a plot-driven experience or a more historical feel. This story has more to do with Hamlet and women than it has to do with Bernhard

June 24th, 2018

See it if You want an intense, disturbing experience. Carey Mulligan does a great job in a difficult role, and it's a fascinating story.

Don't see it if You want a comedy. This is dark, depressing material. Much of the show is fun, but it has a twist toward the end that is hard to shake off.

Delightful, Funny, Colorful, Surprisingly political
June 24th, 2018

See it if You want a fun Broadway show to bring your kids too. You are looking for well-performed, fun, forgettable spectacle.

Don't see it if The very idea of SpongeBob SquarePants musical makes you angry. Also I wouldn't advise it if you've never seen the cartoon.

May 20th, 2018

See it if You're an O'neill fan in the mood for this long, dark show, and can temper your expectations.

Don't see it if You are expecting to see a great or definitive production of this play. You are impatient with long, slow builds.

See it if You're a fan of Shakespeare or an experienced theatregoer who wants to see one of the most difficult plays to pull off done really well.

Don't see it if You're a newcomer to Shakespeare or theatre in general. You get impatient with long plays.

April 5th, 2018

See it if You're a fan of Billy Crudup, this is some of the best work I've seen him do.You're a fan of slightly dark comedy or The Talented Mr. Ripley

Don't see it if I don't know, this is a good, appealing show, even for those who don't go for solo shows. But if you hate stories about gay people, maybe.

Solid writing, Weak acting, Politcal, Entertaining
February 24th, 2018

See it if You like Beau Willimon's writing, especially House of Cards. You enjoy liberal-leaning political humor.

Don't see it if You want to escape from modern politics. You want to see high-caliber Broadway acting. The performances and direction are mediocre.

February 17th, 2018

See it if You want to laugh until it hurts and leave your brain at the door.

Don't see it if You want substance, nuance, or emotional investment. Hell, the play within a play has a plot, but it's easy to lose track of even that.

Enchanting, Great staging, Refreshing, Great design, Emotional
December 28th, 2017

See it if You like musicals and want to see something approached differently. The first half is especially excellent.

Don't see it if Weak writing is a big turn off. This is a great production and the music is strong, but the book has it's weaknesses that can't be avoided.

Peter Pan

December 21st, 2017

See it if You're looking for something really strange/different. This play explores the themes of Peter Pan in some interesting ways. Don't go sober.

Don't see it if You want to see the classic story. Don't bring kids. In general I think much of the audience the night I went was confused.

December 10th, 2017

See it if You want to see Mark Rylance on stage. He's always a treat. The play around him isn't the best, but it's a fun, calming evening.

Don't see it if You're a tourist who wants to see a Broadway spectacle. The aesthetic here is gentle and calming because of all the candle light.

Funny, Resonant, Entertaining
December 10th, 2017

See it if You want a fun free night in the theater. Bring someone who doesn't normally see plays, it's short and accessible.

Don't see it if You're a Shakespeare connoisseur who's seen a bunch of great productions of the Winter's Tale.

October 9th, 2017

See it if You don't mind it being a bit long and sparse on action. You are intrigued by the drama of business.

Don't see it if You want something that will grab your attention. There's a lot of good work in here, but it's not exactly gripping.

Great writing, Resonant, Emotional, Great acting, Great staging
September 23rd, 2017

See it if you can get a ticket. I was skeptical going in, but I loved it. It transcends the concept and it's better than the sum of its parts.

Don't see it if you want a flashy musical. There's very little dancing here and it expertly uses minimal set pieces and a small cast playing many characters

Thought-provoking, Dated, Philosophical, Melancholy
September 22nd, 2017

See it if You enjoy British period pieces and/or philosophy of time (similar to Arrival).

Don't see it if you get frustrated in the face of confusion. You want something relevant to the pervading issues of today (or just light entertainment)

June 6th, 2017

See it if You like Shakespeare or have strong political feelings. This staging is very thought provoking and resonant with today's political landscape

Don't see it if Perhaps the sensitive Trump supporter would be turned off by the beginning - however I think this issue dissolves as the play continues.

May 7th, 2017

See it if I honestly don't know who wouldn't like this show. It's great on a deep and shallow level - fun and thought provoking.

Don't see it if I've got nothing. I think there is something for everyone here.

Great writing, Thought-provoking, Slow, Disappointing, Soporific
May 6th, 2017

See it if You are a fan of the play and don't mind this not being a great or definitive take on it. Or an open-minded Beckett noob with great patience

Don't see it if You aren't already a fan of the play, writer, or style in general. This production is not likely to convert skeptics or blow minds.

Also Diane Wiest's performance is the real reason to see this production. T... Read more Read less

Great acting, Clever, Thought-provoking, Dark, Dated play well framed for a contemporary production
May 6th, 2017

See it if You want to see these stars shine - I've seen both of them before and they are both better in this. A great production for Hellman fans.

Don't see it if You are bored by the conventions of plays from this era (Sullivan's direction helps). If you are offended by dated racial slurs/language.

Henry IV
Confusing, Disappointing, Some good acting, Ambitious, Uneven
April 30th, 2017

See it if You are excited by the all-female take on the play. This was done well and yielded some good performances and a few interesting moments.

Don't see it if You want good production values. You dislike meta-theatrical tinkering with the play.

Entertaining, Funny, Good acting
April 30th, 2017

See it if You are a Shakespeare fan looking for a fun, fast-paced take on the plays with some strong acting. Falstaff in particular is well done.

Don't see it if You are completely new to the play - This cut would likely be hard to follow for a first time viewer.

April 26th, 2017

See it if You are up for a thoughtful, emotional, but funny and not overly demanding little entertainment. Definitely more verbal than visual.

Don't see it if You don't know the basic story of A Doll's House. Other than that I think most people would enjoy this enough to justify a balcony ticket

Indulgent, Slow, Thought-provoking, Intense
April 24th, 2017

See it if You like plays so new they may not even be quite ripe yet. You like emotional drama. You are intrigued by a play that deals with Alzheimer's

Don't see it if It takes a lot to hold your attention. You require humor or are looking for levity.

Nice Fish
Enchanting, Funny, Great writing, Profound, Quirky
January 26th, 2017

See it if You enjoy a cerebral, poetic experience. Nihilism has never felt so positive or uplifting. If you like Waiting for Godot you'll feel at home

Don't see it if You just want to watch a story. Where things happen. Or get frustrated when things don't make sense.

January 26th, 2017

See it if You are looking for a fun, mindless, star-studded evening. This show offers up a lot of bold performances - some work, some don't.

Don't see it if You want a strong story. This play seems to abandon it's plot by the end, but it's funny enough moment to moment that I didn't mind.

October 23rd, 2016

See it if You can bring some of the original context of the play in with you - either because you already know the play or are familiar with the time.

Don't see it if You don't know anything about the play. I don't think it has much to say to today's audience that a newer play couldn't speak to better.

A Doll's House
Great acting, Great writing, Masterful, Thought-provoking, Resonant
May 16th, 2016

See it if You are a theatre fan and have never seen the play before, as this is a clear, specific, and extremely well executed production.

Don't see it if You really can't tolerate plays that require your full attention, or the idea of seeing Ibsen is abhorrent to you. Otherwise see it.

See it if You like classic theatre or plays that are emotionally charged and dramatic. This is a dark and pessimistic battle of the sexes.

Don't see it if You are looking for humor or are turned off by the idea of watching a husband and wife duke it out for two hours onstage.

The Pelican

Uneven acting, Great writing, Dark
May 10th, 2016

See it if You are looking for a rarely produced Strindberg play and are willing to enjoy the play for is strengths and overlook its many weaknesses.

Don't see it if You are indifferent or feel negatively about Strindberg. You are opposed to very dark family drama. You are unable to overlook bad acting.

The Crucible

Disappointing, Great writing, Uninspired, Some strong acting work, Odd design
April 12th, 2016

See it if You are familiar with the play and game to see a new take on it, even if it's not a satisfying take on the play for its originality.

Don't see it if You expect it to rival this director's recent Broadway production of View From the Bridge. You expect a straightforward approach to the play

Great staging, Absorbing, Enchanting, Moving, Beautiful design
March 27th, 2016

See it if You ever want to see Pericles because this is the best production I feel I am likely to see of the play. Or if you like great set design.

Don't see it if You are new to Shakespeare or have difficulty following complicated plots.

Original, Great staging, Absorbing, Clever, Quirky
March 26th, 2016

See it if You want a sure thing on Broadway that is less traditional than the big musicals. This show is engaging for all age groups.

Don't see it if I have a hard time imagining anyone who wouldn't like this show at least a little bit.

February 22nd, 2016

See it if You love Ru Paul's Drag Race or are in the market for a feel-good, flashy, mindless musical extravaganza.

Don't see it if people in drag make you uncomfortable. Or maybe do see it if that's the case, it just might cure you.

See it if You are already a fan of the show and/or want to see a big, classic Broadway musical. You are a tourist or don't see much theatre.
