Great acting, Intelligent, Entertaining, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if You are familiar with A Doll's House By Henrik Ibsen. (An advantage but not a pre-requisite). You like Laurie Metcalf.

Don't see it if You want to see a period piece. You are offended by harsh language. You want something fluffy with an intermission.

Also I really enjoyed this play. It turned out to be something I was not ex... Read more Read less

Clever, Funny, Edgy, Intelligent, Vulgar

See it if You are open-minded about religious humor and vulgarity. I guffawed. Humor is crude at times but there's an underlying intelligence to it.

Don't see it if You are not open to religion as a humorous subject. You're opposed to vulgar language - f-bombs fly!

Also I love the writers of this show. They are so intelligent in their seem... Read more Read less

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Epic, Clever, Funny, Entertaining, Disappointing

See it if You like big splashy musicals. Story is clever and gives a 180 spin on who and what is Wicked in Oz.

Don't see it if You want something relevant with meaning, to discuss afterwards. This ain't rocket science.l

Also I thought the show was very engaging. I love all the twists the show t... Read more Read less

Cats
Midtown W
Entertaining, Dated, Fluffy

See it if There's a nostalgic spot in your heart to re-visit or if you've never seen it and enjoy light, fantasy musical theatre.

Don't see it if You thrive on a plot-driven storyline or anything with more depth than light musical entertainment.

Also I enjoyed CATS although it was a scaled-down version of the original, ... Read more Read less
