Juliet + Romeo
Soho/Tribeca
Clever, Delightful, Great acting, Great staging, Quirky

See it if You want a fresh take on Romeo & Juliet. Shakespeare productions can feel dense & dated & unrelatable but they’ve breathed new life into it.

The Nap (Broadway)
Midtown W
Cliched, Disappointing

See it if You want cheap laughs and don’t mind terrible British accents (2 actors, the rest had good accents). Such a shame cause they are good actors

Don't see it if You want innovative smart comedy and credible Nothern England accents.

Entertaining, Funny, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Quirky

See it if You like political comedy. He’s likeable & funny. Like a tipsy uncle who has hilarious but seemingly practical solutions to world problems.

Emma & Max
Soho/Tribeca
Confusing, Disappointing, Excruciating, Indulgent

See it if You like racially tone deaf, offensive plays. Shame cause the actors are brilliant & wasted on this terrible play with TERRIBLE transitions.

Don't see it if just don’t see it. Look out for when these great actors are in something else And support them in that.

Great acting, Absorbing, Great writing, Masterful, Resonant

See it if You want to be mesmerized by Elaine May’s genius! The other actors were good too but Elaine May is everything!

Don't see it if Don’t want exoerience the harrowing effects of watching someone you love slowly deteriorate. It has funny moments but at its core it’s sad.
