Funny, Thought-provoking, Great acting

See it if you appreciate simple sets and witty, romantic scripts; love to be in the presence of great acting and feel all the tension in the air

Don't see it if you're offended by emotional outbursts, profanity, and fast dialogue

Also even from a balcony seat, I felt engaged for over 2 hours. Adam Driver... Read more Read less

The Naturalists
Soho/Tribeca
Absorbing, Great staging, Refreshing

See it if you're intrigued by the human psyche, Irish culture, carefully-detailed staging and production

Don't see it if you may be triggered/upset by several simulated gunshots in the play

Great acting, Romantic, Clever

See it if you enjoy complicated characters, witty dialogue akin to Philip Barry’s plays

Queen of Hearts
Brooklyn
Masterful, Raunchy, Edgy, Absorbing

See it if you appreciate the human anatomy, athleticism combined with artistry in an intimate and refined production.

Don't see it if for obvious reasons... you're put-off by mild nudity and everything the production represents

Also This was my first time seeing burlesque and Company XIV and I was blow... Read more Read less

Mary Page Marlowe
Midtown W
Absorbing, Great acting, Edgy, Great staging, Thought-provoking

See it if you love complicated characters (especially centered on a woman), can handle intense emotions (shouting) portrayed and sit through 1.5 hr

Don't see it if you are someone who prefers a linear story, needs an explicit "conclusion" to a story.

Also There was a Q&A with the director after the show I attended, and it wa... Read more Read less

Great singing, Slow, Quirky

See it if you have never seen Twelfth Night; enjoy good singing and a joyous energy amongst the cast.

Don't see it if you can’t sit through 2.5+ hours, or expecting a higher production
