Falsettos
Midtown W
Great acting, Great singing, Hilarious, Intelligent, Masterful

See it if you have a time machine, enjoy clever musicals

Don't see it if you aren't about gay musicals

Ambitious, Clever, Funny, Great acting, Must see

See it if you have a beating heart, or an anxiety disorder

Don't see it if you aren't looking for a night of gorgeous theatre

Also Dear Evan Hansen is probably the most relatable musical I have ever wa... Read more Read less

For a previous production
Ambitious, Hilarious, Quirky, Clever, Funny

See it if you like disaster theatre

Don't see it if you don't like self-aware theatre

For a previous production
Clever, Funny, Masterful, Relevant

See it if you're a fan of John Leguizamo's stand up, you want an entertaining crash course in Latin History, or you're a fan of one-man shows.

Don't see it if you're not here for the 'equal opportunity offenders' comedy style, or you don't care about history or Lequizamo's unending energy.

Sleep No More
Chelsea
Dizzying, Great acting, Must see, Riveting, Absorbing

See it if you want a whirlwind experience combining Shakespeare and Hitchcock in the best way possible.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy immersive theatre, crowds, or choosing your own adventure.

Also I have gone to Sleep No More twice, and both times were a unique exper... Read more Read less

Cats
Midtown W
Ambitious, Entertaining, Dizzying, Enchanting, Confusing

See it if you like cats and T.S. Eliot's poems, and can live without a clear plot.

Don't see it if you need a plot, or a show that makes logical sense.

Cliched, Confusing, Disappointing, Ambitious, Enchanting

See it if you want to see the Chandelier Moment in person, actually enjoy the music, or can't find tickets to anything else.

Don't see it if you have the opportunity to see almost any other show, or are also already tired of the music.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Absorbing, Clever, Enchanting, Entertaining

See it if you enjoy hip-hop, history, amazing actors and singers, or all of the above smashed together into 2 hours and 45 minutes.

Don't see it if you're not looking to have your heart broken into two over a founding father.

Dated, Slow, Entertaining

See it if you're a fan of Tennessee Williams

Don't see it if you are not a fan of Tennessee Williams, that may be the only way to truly enjoy it

Bandstand
Midtown W
Ambitious, Entertaining, Great staging, Resonant, Great singing

See it if you like post-WW2 era dramas, live on-stage music, or Laura Osnes

Don't see it if you don't like dance heavy musicals

Amelie
Midtown W
Absorbing, Entertaining, Refreshing, Hilarious, Great singing

See it if you're looking for a nice mixture of hopeful ambition and crushing realities, you're a fan of Phillipa Soo's amazing pipes, or the French

Don't see it if you're too dedicated to the movie, you don't enjoy shows that verge far from reality, or you're not here for clever adaptations

Also As a long time fan of the movie, I was very nervous about seeing it be... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Clever, Profound, Refreshing, Resonant

See it if you want to see a cleverly constructed play with an artfully written script.

Don't see it if you don't want to see a show at the expense of a fictional dog.

Church & State
Midtown W
Absorbing, Great acting, Must see, Resonant, Thought-provoking

See it if you have any opinion on gun restriction, religion, or politics. Or if you're looking for a piece of thoughtful, moving theatre.

Don't see it if you aren't ready to be shaken to your core and maybe shed a tear or two.

Also The writing of this show was brilliant, and I was lucky enough to atte... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Absorbing, Clever, Enchanting, Exquisite

See it if you like War & Peace, musicals that verge from the typical musical sound and structure, or incredibly intricate stories and characters.

Don't see it if you're a stickler for classic musicals and hate electro-pop operas, or get very confused easily with a lot of characters.

90
Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Exquisite

See it if you love fairy tales, redemption stories, and beautiful music.

Don't see it if you have a life long resentment against the Wicked Witch or the Wizard of Oz.

Significant Other
Midtown W
Absorbing, Clever, Funny, Great acting, Delightful

See it if you're looking for queer representation without the typical 'queer struggle' or you find yourself always being the 'single friend'.

Don't see it if you're not looking for an existential crisis in the middle of Times Square after absorbing some spectacular art.
