Mediocre, Confusing, Disappointing, Indulgent, Quirky

See it if you enjoy interesting, themed spaces; If you love Poe and anything to do with him; If you are entertained by seances and their consequences

Don't see it if you prefer a well-structured plot line where things make sense; you hate immersive theater or interacting with actors; don't want to move

Also I had high hopes for this show based on its concept but found that it ... Read more Read less

Unfolding
Midtown W
Great staging, Ambitious, Quirky, Enchanting, Slow

See it if you like puppets and dreamy, beautiful set design. Visually it was really beautiful and the 3 women did an amazing job with the puppets.

Don't see it if you need an exciting plot or fast-paced action. It was quite slow and a bit boring at times.

Confusing, Great singing, Indulgent, Edgy, Disappointing

See it if You like experimental theater with a lot of singing. You are interested in stories about gay marriage abroad. Very talented cast.

Don't see it if You like linear stories or a clear plot; you don't like hearing foreign languages. There were a lot of bizarre parts and it was a bit messy.

Great dancing, Cliched, Refreshing, Slow, Great staging

See it if you like gothic romance stories, musicals, and (amazing) ballet dancing. Irina Dvorovenko made this show. She is a goddess.

Don't see it if you have high standards for original songs in musicals (these were not great); you don't enjoy ballet.

Also I thought this was a very interesting idea and it has a lot of potenti... Read more Read less

Hamlet: An Experience
Soho/Tribeca
Great acting, Quirky, Disappointing, Clever

See it if you want a different take on Hamlet; if you've ever wanted to be in Hamlet; if you like very stripped down versions of plays with 1 actor

Don't see it if you want a more traditional Hamlet with a full cast; if you don't want to participate or read lines; you want a professional production

Fluffy, Disappointing, Confusing, Great singing, Great dancing

See it if You want a night of fluffy pop music where you can dance during the show. If you like Dusty Ray Bottoms - she was the highlight for me.

Don't see it if You like well-written, refined musicals. The sound was terrible and we could barely hear the lyrics. I'm still not sure what the plot was.

Disappointing, Quirky, Indulgent, Banal

See it if you want to watch a really long SNL-type skit that feels like a senior project. There were some funny moments though.

Don't see it if you want a high quality, professional comedy show; if you don't enjoy weird sketch comedy.

Waitress (NYC)
Midtown W
Funny, Entertaining, Quirky, Great acting, Great staging

See it if you were a fan of the movie and like Sara Bareillis music. This is a really delightful way to spend an evening.

Don't see it if you only like big showy musicals or if you hate Sara Bareillis' style of pop.

Sleep No More
Chelsea
Ambitious, Absorbing, Masterful, Must see, Intense

See it if you like to be fully immersed in a completely different world, if you like exploring on your own, and choosing your own adventure.

Don't see it if you have an issue being in large crowds or if you prefer to sit in a seat for theater. Also don't go if you hate modern dance or dark spaces

Enchanting, Great acting, Great staging, Masterful, Riveting

See it if you want to have a truly magical evening. Stage design, effects, acting, scene transitions were all out of this world good. Great story too!

Don't see it if you are not a Harry Potter fan and you only like minimalist theater.

Clever, Delightful, Great staging, Intelligent, Entertaining

See it if You want to be transported to Paris for an evening, or if you enjoy stories about artists and what makes them unique.

Don't see it if You like having separate stage and audience areas. The show takes place in the middle of the audience.

Cliched, Entertaining, Funny, Quirky, Fluffy

See it if you really love any Star Wars references. A good amount of it was clever and some of the singing was good. Overall it was entertaining.

Don't see it if you need a slick, expertly-created musical. This was quite messy and some of the singing was off key. Cute concept, needed better execution.

Don't see it if You are a climate change denier who doesn't want to listen/learn; you hate rap.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy mysteries, if you are expecting a Broadway quality show; or if you hate Agatha Christie.

shadowplay
Soho/Tribeca
Disappointing, Quirky, Great acting, Entertaining, Confusing

See it if you like immersive theater and you like Peter Pan. The actors were really great and good at improv with the audience. Set design was nice.

Don't see it if you like only traditional theater or if you don't like being spoken to during a show; if you need to understand fully what is going on

Also This was a good attempt at immersive theater but it felt very disjoint... Read more Read less

Nutcracker Rouge
Brooklyn
Delightful, Entertaining, Great singing, Raunchy, Great dancing

See it if you love amazing singing, dancing, costuming, and acrobatics. This was such an entertaining show! Absolutely delightful, gorgeous, hilarious

Don't see it if nudity and raunchy dancing make you uncomfortable; if you're expecting a traditional nutcracker dance performance.

Ambitious, Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Refreshing, Intelligent

See it if you want a very unique take on a science lecture (rap!). Baba is incredibly talented and the show really makes you think. I'd see him again.

Don't see it if you like learning only through traditional methods or if you really hate rap.

Then She Fell
Brooklyn
Absorbing, Delightful, Quirky, Must see, Intense

See it if you like immersive theater but prefer to be guided through it, or if you prefer to have small, intimate interactions with the characters.

Don't see it if you don't like individual attention from actors or if you like only traditional theater where you sit in a seat.

Quirky, Relevant, Refreshing, Great singing, Delightful

See it if you like shows about people from different walks of life coming together. This had great music and a great message.

Don't see it if you have a lot of trouble understanding accents or if you only like very flashy, fast-paced shows.

The 11th Dimension
Lower E Side
Confusing, Disappointing, Great singing, Quirky, Slow

See it if you like shows that are post modern, very weird/quirky, and hard to follow.

Don't see it if you actually wanted to go to an immersive theater show. The only thing that made it "immersive" is briefly talking to some audience members.
