Socrates
East Village
Absorbing, Great acting, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if It was a very absorbing exploration on Socrates, made vivid and intense by the lead actor, who was simply fantastic in the role.

The Crucible
Midtown W
Confusing, Disappointing, Great writing, Shallow, Pedantic

See it if This is a classic but the production didn't live up to the material. Great actors but no one's best work.

White Noise
East Village
Ambitious, Great acting, Intense, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if It's a super intense show and worth seeing, particularly for the great acting and taking on questions of race.

Chelsea
Original, Overrated, Excruciating, Confusing, Great staging
