Ambitious, Clever, Intelligent

See it if You want to see a clever an inventive musical that everyone knows about and wants to see, perhaps a bit overhyped, but still great!

Halcyon Days
Midtown W
Absorbing, Ambitious, Resonant

See it if You like political shows that deal with the Reagan era, but seem pertinent today. Decent script and a mix of good and flat acting.

Don't see it if You are looking for a polished political drama. It does well, but could be cleaner.

Great acting, Great writing, Resonant

See it if Classic play that is still relevant, well acted and funny. Definitely worth seeing!

An Ordinary Muslim
East Village
Thought-provoking, Absorbing

See it if Reminded me of a John Obsorne 'Angry Young Man' play, but with the caveat of being an angry young Muslim man. A lot of interesting ideas.

Banal, Great acting, Slow

See it if you want to see a very short (45 minute) play that feels much longer, doesn't make much sense, but is beautifully staged.

Banal, Slow, Boring

See it if Want to go to a show that is more the equivalent of hearing someone read stories to you at the library.

Don't see it if You'd like to go to a show that is more than short stories being read/acted to you. Don't understand why this one got so many good reviews.

Indulgent, Insipid, Disappointing

See it if You want to watch an over the top one man show, which relies on gesticulations to make people laugh, rather than funny and smart writing.

Don't see it if Many were laughing, but there wasn't much substance. Pretty dull show.

Banal, Cliched

See it if Gabriel Ebert is always terrific and so were a couple of the others. The staging was pretty good.

Don't see it if Many actors struggled with their accents, the play is not well written, super obvious, pretty boring and trying too hard to be profound.
