Entertaining, Fluffy, Great chorus, Funny

See it if you love the Go-Gos, or are ready for the most woke show Broadway has ever seen! A hell of a lot of fun!

Don't see it if you don't want anything thought-provoking in your Broadway fun. The Shakespearean-inspired speech and inclusive politics could be surprising

85
Delightful, Enchanting, Dated, Funny, Great staging

See it if you're looking for a night at the theater with a living legend. The chorus and younger cast give incredible performances too!

Don't see it if you're easily bored by the slower old fashioned pacing and songs. There are a few duds in between the classic tunes.

77
Ambitious, Enchanting, Slow, Great staging

See it if You're a HP fanatic longing for new adventures in a beloved world. Onstage magic doesn't disappoint & cast gives it their all

Don't see it if You're not a major Potter fan. The staging makes this show, but it's not very deep material and is often confusing

Also Material is uneven & seeing Harry all grown up takes it from the books... Read more Read less

Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting

See it if you're a fan of shakespeare or anyone in the cast. Truly fantastic performances, so so funny throughout! Very fun & creative production.

Don't see it if it's the middle of a heatwave. The theater really blocks the breeze and sitting in sweat for hours changes your experience negatively.

Midtown W
Fluffy, Romantic, Great singing, Entertaining, Sweet

See it if you loved the film or are looking for a fun happy night at the theater.

Don't see it if You're looking for nuance and in depth historical details about the revolution. It's very light and skims over a lot.

80
Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great staging, Resonant

See it if you're looking for a good laugh at dark humor & love intricate staging. The repetition is so impressive & this cast proves they're real pros

Don't see it if Songs are hit or miss. Also this is a rated R film on stage- I wouldn't bring the kids!

88
Absorbing, Clever, Enchanting, Great staging, Edgy

See it if you want a theater experience like no other. No worries if you don't know War & Peace, they'll explain it! Loved the interactive approach!

Don't see it if You like traditional shows and songs. The music is unique but beautiful & there is some unexpected raunch. Not necessarily good for kids.

War Paint
Midtown W
Great singing, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Great staging, Entertaining

See it if you're looking for a real diva battle! This show is all about our leading ladies & they come through in a BIG way. Incredible performances!

Don't see it if you're looking for memorable music and dancing. The story is fantastic but the telling is clunky. You won't leave the theater humming.

The Humans
Midtown W
Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if you enjoy dysfunctional family dramas from a great cast. It's a short 1 act so you'll have most of the evening to think through the show.

Don't see it if you're tired of hearing about Irish American families or selfish millennials. It's a good, not great play

Matilda
Midtown W
Clever, Great staging, Funny, Great singing

See it if you have children that love the book or movie or want to relive them yourself. It's the best musical for bibliophiles & grown-up kids!

Don't see it if you have trouble understanding british accents, or can't stand shows with lots of kids on stage and in the audience.

90
Absorbing, Great acting, Masterful, Must see, Relevant

See it if you love a star-studded cast in a classic play. It's dark but feels very contemporary. Watch out for the intermission bathroom stampede!

Don't see it if you don't like the 3:45 run time or the dark dramatic plays about addiction

86
Delightful, Entertaining, Great singing, Brilliant staging, Romantic

See it if you love vanilla ice cream, jewel box sets and the movie You've Got Mail. The whole cast shines!

Eclipsed
Midtown W
Brilliant acting, Profound, Must see, Intense, Absorbing

See it if you're open to darker plays balanced with some humor, you're ready to be challenged and entertained, you love Lupita Nyong'o

Don't see it if a play about the horrors of war and sexual violence would be triggering

85
Great dancing, Uplifting, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you're a dancer or a dreamer. Billy's scenes are light & fun against the darker setting, and the child actors are wonderful!

Don't see it if you're not able to follow accents & you know little about the miner's strike. The strike plays a larger role than in the film

84
The Lion
East Village
Beautiful music, Poignant, Absorbing, Original

See it if you love acoustic music and raw emotions on stage. Ben is an incredible performer & he manages to find the joy in a sad story.

Don't see it if you're looking for a two act show about lighter themes.

95
Pippin
Midtown W
Delightful, Great staging, Must see, Thought-provoking, Entertaining

See it if you love Pippin & the circus! This modern update powerfully resonates & draws in the audience. Cast is spectacular

Dr. Zhivago
Midtown W
Cliched, Exquisite, Disappointing, Slow

See it if you're ready for beautiful sets and costumes! Cast delivers the material well, but the material doesn't always live up to their talents.

Don't see it if you're looking on a fresh take on the classic - this is traditional in a big way. No one left the theater humming the forgettable music

88
Honeymoon in Vegas
Midtown W
Laugh out loud funny, Catchy music, Great acting, Fluffy, Entertaining

See it if you're ready for some first rate singing dancing and clowning around. Much more than the premise & much more fun than you'll expect

Don't see it if you can't stand Tony Danza or Elvis. It's Vegas!

81
Anything Goes
Midtown W
Great dancing, Clever, Dated, Great singing, Feel good show

See it if you tap dance at your desk, can't get enough of the Cole Porter tunes & love to laugh at the fast talkin' cast. Fun night that can't be beat

Don't see it if You want a very modern musical - no updates could take away the old soul of this show.

45
Ambitious, Confusing, Disappointing, Excruciating, Overrated

See it if You're a Thomas Merton fan who wants to reexamine his legacy and question everything. Synchronized swimming or chainsaw battling abound

Don't see it if You expect the play to give you any answers or make any conclusions. So open-ended that it's clichéd. Ominously presented by all male cast

King Charles III
Midtown W
Absorbing, Ambitious, Original, Intelligent, Great acting

See it if you enjoy Shakespeare and know a bit about the current royals. This totally exceeded our expectations!

Don't see it if you're not a fan of plays or dramas. This show is dead serious & asks deep questions about royals in the modern age, politics and the media.

Noises Off
Midtown W
Laugh out loud funny, Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging, Must see

See it if you love farce or any of the amazing cast members. Comedic gold in a truly technically challenging play. Bravo/a to the whole production!

Don't see it if you get easily confused or don't pay complete attention. Many jokes rely on call backs to earlier gags. Go see it!

67
Great singing, Entertaining, Jukebox musical, Slow, Cliched

See it if you love Gloria! The cast will blow you away with their dancing & singing talent. All the best songs, great band. You'll leave singing!

Don't see it if you need a well plotted show - it doesn't dive too deep into darker themes, feels rushed at times, and ties things up too nicely at the end

For a previous production
Jersey Boys (NYC)
Midtown W
Feel good show, Jukebox musical, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if whole family wants to sing along at a Broadway show. Cast does excellent 4 Seasons impressions & really sing all the hits! Fun night out!

Don't see it if you're looking for an ambitious show - quintessential jukebox musical. It might get a little risqué for youngest kids

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Enchanting, Clever, Catchy music, Great staging, Interesting twist on a classic

See it if you love songs about empowerment, finding your place and female friendship, you want to impress your date with a feel good show

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Delightful, Ambitious, Edgy, Great writing

See it if you know the drill. Founding Fathers rapping! History comes alive! It's absolutely brilliant and unexpected, even after all the fuss.

Don't see it if you're a traditionalist. You've probably heard at least 1 song from this show by now. Did you like it? No? Then Hamilton isn't for you.

Delightful, Entertaining, Great staging, Refreshing, Resonant

See it if you love the original & are excited for a beautiful new production. Cast is unbelievably talented & give new depth to the material.

Don't see it if you'd like a 2 act show, prefer comedy without tragedy or don't love The Little Mermaid. Prepare for in the round with audience interaction!

Also This production hits the perfect note of injecting just a touch of the... Read more Read less

Assassins
Midtown W
Clever, Entertaining, Edgy, Intense, Intelligent

See it if you're interested in america's history of gun violence and celebrity, or anything Sondheim. It will leave you thinking.

Don't see it if you're looking for an upbeat show with lots of hummable melodies. This is dark and complex stuff.

Indecent
Midtown W
Absorbing, Exquisite, Intense, Must see, Resonant

See it if you are human. Beautiful production of a moving story. Must be seen to be understood - and bring tissues!

Don't see it if you looking for an upbeat lighthearted comedy, you'll have to look elsewhere. There are moments of lightness but it's an intense show.

65
Confusing, Edgy, Ambitious, Great acting, Slow

See it if you love Sally Field

Don't see it if you're expecting a traditional version of this show. I hadn't seen it performed live & got lost. Hard to tell time & place on the bare stage

88
Sunset Boulevard
Midtown W
Enchanting, Exquisite, Great acting, Great staging, Indulgent

See it if you're here for the acting & sumptuous costumes. Glenn Close delivers a bravura performance and the supporting cast is very talented.

Don't see it if you're expecting something light hearted or different than the film. This is dark material beautifully staged.

65
Funny, Fluffy, Family friendly, Impressive musicians, Entertaining

See it if kids are attending & love the film! The live performances from the kids on stage are the best part, adding new depth to this light material.

Don't see it if you're looking for something new - this is the movie almost word for word. New songs aren't memorable and there is little dancing.

95
Absorbing, Edgy, Masterful, Intense, Thought-provoking

See it if you're looking for a dramatic musical with an original plot and contemporary music, beautifully and poignantly performed. I predict Tonys!

Don't see it if you have young children, or you want a light, dance heavy musical. The material is dark but important!

Absorbing, Clever, Enchanting, Refreshing, Original

See it if you love a critical look at US History, songs from decades past and enjoy being surprised by a show. An absolute joy that will stay with you

Don't see it if You're not interested in an rough, sometimes raunchy show that will likely involve your participation, and make you rethink US culture.

The Judas Kiss
Brooklyn
Entertaining, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Slow

See it if you're a Wilde devotee or a Rupert Everett fan. You enjoy historical shows or are interested in gay themes. Beautifully acted and resonant

Don't see it if you're not a fan of Wilde or plays that make you think. This play starts a conversation you'll have to finish on your own time

88
Waitress (NYC)
Midtown W
Delightful, Original, Entertaining, Great staging, Great singing

See it if You love Sara Bareilles and female-driven shows. You'll leave knowing "What's Inside" and impressed with a great ensemble cast!

Don't see it if You want traditional musicals without the signature Bareilles flourishes. You like dancing shows or don't want to see abuse on stage.

80
Enchanting, Funny, Great staging, Quirky, Delightful

See it if you're looking for a fun romantic romp with a short running time. It's delightful fun with a fantastic cast.

On The Town
Midtown W
Entertaining, Dated, Great dancing, Fluffy

See it if you love dancing & zany antics with New York flavor. The cast really gives their all!

Don't see it if you're expecting the film on stage. Much of the music is different & the plot suffers as a result.

84
War Horse
Upper W Side
Enchanting, Original, Great staging, Entertaining, Epic

See it if you're a fan of the Lion King & want to see more animals come to life on stage in a more dramatic show. This is much better than the film.

Don't see it if you're put off by the somewhat cliched premise of a boy who just loves his horse.

85
Once (Broadway)
Midtown W
Great staging, Entertaining, Refreshing, Romantic

See it if you love Irish music & subtle love stories. Talented cast performs as the orchestra too, and injects humor into this sweet tale.

If/Then
Midtown W
Ambitious, Disappointing, Great singing, Entertaining, Overrated

See it if you're an Idina super fan. You will be rewarded with some epic belting & a lovely supporting cast. Beautiful staging as well

Don't see it if you need the plots to work perfectly and good material for the supporting cast too. Jokes can feel a little dated too

85
Cabaret (Broadway)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Enchanting, Great acting, Intelligent

See it if you love Alan Cummings and the dark themes this show explores. Catchy songs and great staging make for a fun night

Don't see it if you expect Liza talent in your leading lady. No other Sally Bowles can live up and it's disappointing to discover. Good attempt ladies

72
Cute, Quirky, Dated, Great staging, Great acting

See it if You like a 1 act musical with catchy tunes & a rare for Broadway heroine. Wonderful vocalists make this a fun night

Don't see it if you want an up-to-date take on family dynamics - this show comes to us from the past.

85
Dark, Great staging, Riveting, Thought-provoking, Great acting

See it if you can listen to Brooklyn accents and imagine a Greek tragedy. The drama unfolds slowly but masterfully. Great production

Don't see it if you're not prepared for suggestions(?) of incest with a very abstract set. You can't sit through a 1 act with no intermission

55
Clever, Disappointing, Ambitious, Original

See it if you're looking for an original night out. The show is different each week and they love audience participation

Don't see it if you hate improv. Very hit & miss in sketches combine with a frantic pace to make a confusing time.

71
Dated, Entertaining, Great singing, Epic, Great staging

See it if you love electric guitar with your opera. Phantom hasn't aged perfectly, but it delivers consistent entertainment. You'll impress your date!

Don't see it if you can't stand the music, or small children who will be frightened. They've updated the special effects and they made me jump!

92
Avenue Q (NYC)
Midtown W
Laugh out loud funny, Unexpected, Clever, Raunchy, Romantic

See it if you majored in English and are still paying off those loans, you're a puppet enthusiast, or you're an optimist looking for the good in life

Don't see it if you're easily offended. Puppets sing about porn, sexuality and sex and panhandle during the show. Lots of stereotypes but all funny

75
Funny, Over the top, Feel good show, Empowering, Great staging

See it if Cyndi Lauper is your goddess, you need more drag queens in your life, or you want a fun upbeat night at the theater - just a little risqué

Don't see it if your very conservative uncle is in town, or you have difficulty understanding English accents

Sylvia
Midtown W
Quirky, Great acting, Entertaining, Fluffy

See it if You love dogs or are considering your midlife crisis. Makes a great case for man's best friend. Whole cast gives a master class in acting.

Don't see it if You don't want saccharine sweet entertainment. It's fairly predictable. Not for the nervous cat owner!
