Refreshing, Enchanting, Great acting, Hilarious, Quirky

See it if you want to be entertained, you grew up with sitcoms, you're a child of the 70s

Don't see it if you don't understand that Shakespeare and in particular merry wives, is popular entertainment

Plasticity the Play
West Village
Absorbing, Cliched, Edgy, Clever, Ambitious

See it if You like video art, projection design, experimental theater, one man shows

Don't see it if You don't want to sit trough a five part show that should run ~90' but it feels like an eternity. Not boring, just very intense, challenging

Also If you like intense drama and high stakes, there's a really difficult ... Read more Read less

Torch Song (NYC)
Midtown W
Funny, Dated, Great acting, Fluffy, Relevant

See it if You're a young gay man. You're an old gay man. You're not gay or not a man, but you've a mom, or have or want a child. You've lost in love

Don't see it if You don't feel like fluff, even if it surrounds some serious themes. You dislike physical comedy

Clever, Dated, Hilarious, Great acting, Resonant

See it if You read Vonnengut. You're interested in violence as connatural to man in general, and specifically as an American value.

Don't see it if You're uncomfortable with Hitler playing shuffleboard in paradise, or with a mirror held up to you. You dislike the 1970s

See it if You are European. You're familiar with Brecht. You appreciate satire

Perfect Crime

Funny, Cheeky, Cliched, Inox

See it if Its Thanksgiving or whatever holiday, and sane players are resting. You want to see something of s legend

Don't see it if You're not game with playing along. You don't like something that's literally decades old

Also I have tender feelings for this show. Like the postal service, or Carl... Read more Read less

The Brutes
West Village
Ambitious, Delightful, Meta, Clever, New

See it if You like history. You like Shakespeare and great Shakespeareans. You work with your siblings. You appreciate that all the word's a stage

Don't see it if You're hard of hearing. You dislike wit for its sake. You won't contemplate the repetitiveness of history or the necessity of theater

Fool For Love
Midtown W
Cliched, Slow, Intense, Great acting

See it if You think there's great American theater, the way there's great American literature. You like a Greek tragedy in redneck clothing

Don't see it if You want your plays to start hot and fast. This only warms in the last scene. You need heightened more than quotidian language

Also I find it difficult to relate to the precise stylistic choice of banal... Read more Read less
