Absorbing, Dizzying, Great acting

See it if you enjoy a non stop masterful performance by JTF

Don't see it if you need more physical characters and distractions like set changes etc

Also I was weary when the play first began, I thought I would hate the 'voi... Read more Read less

Luft Gangster
East Village
Great acting

See it if you enjoy WW2 plays. It delicately begins to humanize many of the players in this chunk of history.

Don't see it if you want a more provocative play, or a more intense portrayal of WW2 POW, it is much more sensitive than that.

Dames at Sea

Delightful, Entertaining, Great tapping

See it if you enjoy a slight farce on the old timey musical plots. Plus tap dancing that is out of this world!

The Front Page
Midtown W
Dated, Excruciating, Slow

See it if you love men. And enjoy an antiquated view of male/female relations. Sadly, a step backwards in Broadway revivals.

Don't see it if you have the choice.

Also Not what I expected. First act was a drag, just a bunch of men yelling... Read more Read less

For a previous production
Great acting, Great singing, Masterful

See it if You want to be blown away by Gyllenhaal. Truly a great actor, and impressive conquering of Sondheim's pointillism. Ashford is amazing.

Don't see it if you need to hear dialogue and can't follow fast paced lyrics that propel the show

Also Ashford and Gyllenhaal were fantastic in this concert production. Grea... Read more Read less

If I Forget
Midtown W
Profound, Relevant, Resonant

See it if you enjoy provoking play-writing set in the not so distant past, that resonates with familial relationships, politics, culture, & history

Don't see it if need classic Broadway romance and pizzazz. Or can't handle long scenes.

Heisenberg
Midtown W
Absorbing, Great acting, Masterful, Profound

See it if you have an open mind to the power of acting. The two actors left alone on the stage are enough to captive for the full 90 minutes.

Don't see it if you enjoy traditional plays and can't lose yourself in the actors and their story.

Also Riveting 90 minutes. I could see how people are easily put off by this... Read more Read less

Also Loralee Gaynor was a joy

Aladdin (Broadway)
Midtown W
Enchanting, Entertaining, Disappointing

See it if you love a lavish Disney production. Great sets, dances, and big musical numbers.

Don't see it if you want to see a leading pair that can keep up with each other. Jasmine was constantly left behind.

Also Genie is a genius, Aladdin is great, as are his best friends, but Jasm... Read more Read less
