The Bigot
Midtown W
Entertaining, Pretty good, Relevant, Fluffy, Great acting

See it if You like redemption stories and enjoy shows with a small, strong cast and minimal production.

Don't see it if You don't like happy endings that feel too neat. You don't want to hear extremely bigoted views expressed on stage.

Also Stephen Payne does a fantastic job in playing a character who is reali... Read more Read less

Cliched, Touching, Quirky, Funny, Stereotypical

See it if You enjoy one-man shows. You enjoy discussions of health care and love done in a humorous way.

Don't see it if You hate one-man shows. You don't like somewhat dated, traditional stand-up tropes. Jokes Parkinson's & other health issues would upset you.

Also I liked that the show told the story of a happy marriage and a couple ... Read more Read less

Network (NYC)
Midtown W
Relevant, Uneven, Great acting, Slow, Good staging

See it if You're a fan of the movie. You like shows that deal with the media and ethics. You like multi-media in the theater. You love Bryan Cranston.

Don't see it if You're not a fan of the movie. You can't tolerate an irrelevant "romance," you don't like plays where a portion of the action happens on tv.

The Antipodes
Midtown W
Cliched, Disappointing, Indulgent, Slow, Relevant

See it if You like commentary on popular culture and Hollywood, and the creative process. You don't mind some magical realism.

Don't see it if Having to watch long, awkward, sexist conversations on one ugly set doesn't appeal to you. You want likable characters, a coherent narrative

Great singing, Disappointing, Banal, Excruciating, Insipid

See it if It undergoes MAJOR revisions, or one catchy song and a moment or two of drama can save hours of boring, plotless mediocrity for you.

Don't see it if You want plot, characters, good music, good dancing, continued respect for David Byrne.

Also Jo Lampert was amazing, and did the very best she could, but she was g... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Romantic, Ambitious

See it if You like shows about moral and social issues and great acting.

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Great singing, Entertaining, Overrated, Female leads, Pretty good

See it if You are a fan of retellings of classic tales, like big musicals, like female main characters.

Don't see it if You don't like musicals, or don't like modern-style musicals. You were a fan of the book, and won't enjoy the changes made to the book plot.

Great acting, Slow, Overrated, Disappointing, Relevant

See it if You love any of the actors. They all do a great job.

Don't see it if You're expecting something outside of a fairly typical family drama.

Sad, Great acting, Disappointing, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if You enjoy complex characters and themes about bullying and mental health. You don't need a traditional happy ending.

Don't see it if You don't like stories that involve lying and deception. You are looking for something light.

Also This show is very well-written, and every single cast member at the pe... Read more Read less

Symphonie Fantastique
Soho/Tribeca
Delightful, Unusual, Great staging, Absorbing

See it if You enjoy classical music and abstract imagery and seeing those things come together in a really cool way.

Don't see it if You'd be bored by sitting through a classical piano concert. You don't enjoy abstract art at all.
