About:  I respect anyone willing to hone their craft who then has the guts to,perform it live. I prefer off-Broadway and tend towards experimental but still love Shakespeare and Hamilton.

Dated, Fluffy, Indulgent, Overrated, Why?

See it if You've seen everything else.

Don't see it if You understand just because TS Elliot is great and theater is great and beautiful women are great, mixing all three together doesn't work.

Soho/Tribeca
Confusing, Disappointing, Indulgent, Quirky, Original

See it if A couple of good performances will keep you interested in a very scaled down take on a classic piece of literature

Don't see it if You are confused by hyper-active staging or that is so scaled down it depends upon you knowing the original piece of literature.

Clever, Entertaining, Dated, Ambitious, Great acting

See it if You love great acting and inventive direction combined with classic English composition.

Don't see it if You're going to be completely out off by Shakespeare's single mysogynistic play. Despite all the great stuff, it is what it is.

Blue Man Group
East Village
Absorbing, Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Dated

See it if you are looking for something different and haven't seen this before. Admittedly it's been around a long time and seems a little dated.

Don't see it if you want something to think about

Ambitious, Entertaining, Great acting

See it if you are okay getting exactly what you expect to get. The first act is actually a little slow. The second act is great.

Don't see it if you need to be surprised and don't just want great singing and a spectacular staging.

92
Absorbing, Enchanting, Great staging, Intelligent, Must see

See it if you want to see an original, thoughtful piece of musical theater. It lives up to the expectations.

Don't see it if you're grumpy and just hate humanity.

Great acting, Great writing, Funny, Masterful, Original

See it if you have a sense of humor and want to see something truly unique

Don't see it if you get offended easily

Stairway to Stardom
Soho/Tribeca
Absorbing, Ambitious, Great writing, Must see, Thought-provoking

See it if You like thoughtful, contemporary works combining music and dance with witty, emotional text and great costumes and sets.

Don't see it if You ONLY like traditional Broadway musicals. Or if you're hoping to see a simple spoof of the original cult tv show.

Dry Powder
East Village
Ambitious, Entertaining, Great acting, Funny, Quirky

See it if You want to see an entertaining riff on Wall Street culture and a realistic depiction of dialogue in that world - performed very well

Don't see it if If you just love or hate Wall Street and don't want to see a more complex storyline.

Ambitious, Cliched, Confusing, Funny

See it if you are okay with seeing something start out promisingly but end up in a cliched, confusing dystopian vision.

Don't see it if you are put off by mediocre acting (by some of the cast) and by confusing, theme driven staging.

Midtown W
Ambitious, Clever, Great acting, Intelligent, Original

See it if you'd like another take on this tragedy & if good acting and strong women reacting realistically to extremely difficult times is appealing

Don't see it if you aren't open to new interpretations or want a fluffy musical. this is not that.

Ambitious, Absorbing, Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging

See it if you love spectacle. It's a lot of hype to live up to but it does. Great talent all the way around.

Don't see it if you need something unexpected.

Ambitious, Fluffy, Great acting, Overrated, Clever

See it if you love disney and want to see something a little different from that universe. It's what you'd expect although not up to the hype.

Don't see it if you want something edgy.

Hamilton (NYC)

Absorbing, Ambitious, Delightful, Entertaining, Great acting

See it if you're still breathing

Don't see it if you'd rather be watching the Kardashians
