See it if You have a passion for women's rights, the horrors of a long nasty civil war in Liberia or love Lupita

Don't see it if You want to feel good at the end of the play.

Clever, Ambitious

See it if You love Arthur Miller and Ivo's directing, then you must see this play. It is very poetic with the stage, attire and acting.

Don't see it if You can't sit thru a one Act play or are just looking to see Russell Tovey bare it all.

Delightful, Refreshing, Romantic

See it if What's not to love about the music, dancing, love story? If you want a pick me up- go see this!

Don't see it if You are a theater snob.

Delightful, Masterful, Romantic

See it if Magical ballet musical. The dancing & singing is superb.

Don't see it if You don't like ballet. It is a bit over-rated, imho, compared to other "must - see"

Ambitious, Delightful, Mind-blowing

See it if Neil Patrick Harris as Hedwig was one of the most ambitious & muscular performances that I can recall.

Don't see it if You aren't into gender benders.

Sweat
Midtown W
Clever, Epic, Masterful, Profound, Riveting

See it if you care about the state of what happened in the 2016 election

Don't see it if you are a heartless person with the last name Trump.

Southern Comfort
East Village
Disappointing

See it if You are into trans stories that are quite moving.

Don't see it if One of the male leads was horrifyingly out of tune & didn't carry the message.

82
Dada Woof Papa Hot
Upper W Side
Cliched, Entertaining

See it if You are part of a gay family. You want to think about the future for Gay families (rather than look back at the tragedy & civil rights)

Don't see it if You don't understand some gay cliche's.

Hand to God
Midtown W
Ambitious, Cliched, Tv worthy

See it if You want lots of one liners and really wrestle with freudian messages buried deep inside lots of acerbic comments

Don't see it if You want to save your money for more plot development, stronger & faster delivery

86
Clever, Gripping, Intelligent

See it if It is a very good play about the very unique LDS world. Really a great tutorial & story.

Don't see it if You are a religious right person sensitive to a little parody.

64
The Visit
Midtown W
Cliched, Mediocre

See it if The only reason to see The Visit is Chita Rivera. She is a great of Broadway and holds up well given her tenure however it is not a must.

Don't see it if You don't like Chita Rivera.

Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Intense

See it if You want a musical based on a great illustrated book. The music & story are moving, the plot really riveting and just well done.

Don't see it if You have LGBT issues. The Theater is a bit clumsy at herding people in & out and the play has no intermission.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Ambitious, Clever, Delightful, Dizzying

See it if Mind blowingly amazing -- The Public really wins with this play.

Don't see it if The run time is long-- you may get itchy if you can't sit for a 3+ hour show.
