Molly Sweeney
Midtown W
Listless, Disappointing, Overrated, Insipid

See it if This show was boring, uneventful, unpleasant, unskilled. Tricked by Show Score reviews once again

Don't see it if This was some of the worst acting I've seen all year and I go to the theater all the time. Cancel your tickets while you still can

Handbagged
Midtown E
Slow, Insipid, Disappointing

See it if you’re really interested in the leading ladies

Don't see it if you’re looking for something fun or entertaining. Too bad the script was no good since people like the queen

59
Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
Soho/Tribeca
Overrated, Insipid

See it if It’s not really innovative or funny, it seemed like something more for kids

Don't see it if Just wanted to warn the people about the overscoring. I went to watch it because of the reviews

85
Shinka
Lower E Side
Absorbing, Unique, Memorable

See it if you want to watch an artist’s creation

Don't see it if I was glad I decided to watch it. Perhaps the ending could be rethought if there will be future productions

The End of Mermaids
East Village
Entertaining

See it if you like mermaids

Don't see it if you scoff at the supernatural

84
Funny, Entertaining, Quirky, Refreshing

See it if Extra points for part 1 which was funnier, but overall I’d recommend this 2 part import as being more fun and enjoyable than Harry Potter

Don't see it if you don’t enjoy silly humor

Exquisita Agonia
Gramercy
Overrated

See it if the summary sounds interesting to you and you understand Spanish. It’s a mix of poetry and melodrama

Don't see it if First time watching a play with subtitles and the language barrier does take away from the immersion and enjoyment

72
I Am My Own Wife
East Village
Quirky

See it if you’re particularly interested in LGBT stories or Germany

Don't see it if It was hard to invest in the world of the show. One man playing multiple roles sometimes seemed more an audiobook being performed live

65

Midtown E
Confusing, Slow, Overrated

See it if you like female police dramas

Don't see it if Unfortunately, the writing was not strong enough to evoke a level of credible reality essential to a one woman show

66
Dated, Insipid

See it if you appreciate representations of the differently abled. Also, for a Roundabout production this show was surprisingly diverse

Don't see it if you’re looking for something fun or fresh. If you’re not specifically interested in the subject matter it’s not bad, not good, not necessary

Watchable, Resonant

See it if you want to listen to good music and feel like you’re at a fringe festival

Don't see it if you’d be irritated by an imperfect piece. Sometimes the music and story don’t cohere into a musical.

73
Overrated

See it if you're interested in Malcolm X, history or biography

Don't see it if This show has good writing but it's not a must see. It lacks some pop and polish and really doesn't measure up to the book or the film.

Hundred Days
East Village
Excruciating, Indulgent, Overrated

See it if you like modern folk music. But if the story doesn't sound appealing to you you'd better stay away. This was the most repugnantly...

Don't see it if narcissistic show I've ever seen. These happy hipsters tried to paint their plain relationship as one of the great love stories of the ages.

74

Don't see it if you're not in the mood for those things

Jerry's Girls
Midtown E
Dated, Disappointing, Hokey

Spoon River
Midtown W
Confusing, Disappointing, Insipid

See it if you're in the mood for a happy show

See it if It was disjointed, awkward, sometimes laugh out loud funny, sometimes tedious

Don't see it if you're tired of plays about squabbling couples

So boring

See it if you are bored and like joining the lottery. The second half is less boring than the first half, but the whole show is a dragging bore

Don't see it if Even if you haven't seen Coriolanus I wouldn't recommend this, just pay to watch something that's actually entertaining. You've been warned!

Long Lost
Midtown W
Overrated, Insipid, Cliched

See it if you enjoy goofy soap operas

Don't see it if The show is not funny or moving, it's not really worth watching

Socrates
East Village
Terrible waste of time, Overrated

See it if Bone dry play. Someone at the Public should have rejected this script so as to spare thousands of people hours of disappointment and boredom

Don't see it if This was the first play I’ve seen where the ensemble actors onstage looked befuddled as to how to get into the text they were performing

Also I hope the show will be trimmed since almost all the scenes were unint... Read more Read less

54
The Sundogs
East Village

The Diana Tapes
Soho/Tribeca
Tedious, Disappointing

See it if you want to watch a tedious behind the scenes of the Diana tapes story. This was no All the President’s Men

Assembled Identity
Soho/Tribeca
Overrated, Insipid, Slow

See it if If you’re a science fiction fan you can still pass on this one, it didn’t have much of an SF feel at all

Don't see it if The writing and the piece overall did not come together to form an engaging narrative or a work of art. Spoken parts were the worst

Quirky

See it if you’re interested in the idea of literary stand-up or you like seeing fringe shows when they come to town

Don't see it if you’re looking for theater or disliked being called on by the teacher in school. For me it wasn’t very funny.

Uncommon Sense
East Village
Overrated, Tedious, Trite

See it if you're specifically interested in autism. If you have no particular interest in autism you'd be better off watching something else

Don't see it if I rarely leave early but I would have if I could and wouldn't have missed out on anything. I regret going to watch it based on goofy reviews

66
Indulgent, Ambitious

See it if you like NPR world music programs

Don't see it if This felt less like theater and more like watching a troupe of effete, off-putting nerds showing off their talents for an hour

72
The Flatiron Hex
Soho/Tribeca
Quirky

See it if you're interested in any kind of science fiction theater

Don't see it if Although this show was creative and memorable it didn't really pop and its flavor of strangeness would not appeal to everyone

Quirky

See it if you're in the mood for something "out there." It took a long while for the fun to get started but some fun did occur (30-40% fun I'd say)

56
