Burn This
Midtown W
Overrated, Funny, Disappointing, Cliched, Entertaining

See it if You really want to see the two stars. It's always fun to see your favorite actors in new roles.

Don't see it if You expect the show to be more than that. I was never drawn into the show and felt the actors were clearly acting.

Delightful, Entertaining, Great staging, Disappointing, Fluffy

See it if You are looking for a Disney musical-type experience through an off-beat lens. Setting is amazing and the cast really tries hard.

Don't see it if You are looking for a show where the leads have great chemistry or you want to see something with a bit more of an edge.

In & Of Itself
Gramercy
Absorbing, Ambitious, Masterful, Profound, Must see

See it if You love close up "blow you away" magic and are moved by powerful personal stories that come in amazingly unexpected ways.

Don't see it if You don't like magic or are a white nationalist (the stories and themes will not sit well with you).

Waitress (NYC)
Midtown W
Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Great singing

See it if you liked the movie and want to see a wonderful stage adaptation that totally holds its own as a great show in its own right.

Don't see it if you only like serious shows. Hard not to leave this show without a huge smile on your face.

Avenue Q (NYC)
Midtown W
Dated, Clever, Great staging, Disappointing, Overrated

See it if you are a tourist and everything else is too expensive or unavailable.

Don't see it if you are not into shows that have clearly "jumped the shark". Loved, loved, loved it when I saw it at the Vinyard; but it has not aged well.

See it if you are a tourist or get taken to the show for free.

Don't see it if you are not a tourist or are not taken to the show for free.

The Nap (Broadway)
Midtown W
Slow, Insipid, Excruciating, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if You like a "classic" farce that, for many, will seem dated and unfunny. Or maybe you are a tourist who just wants to see any Broadway Show.

Don't see it if you are looking for original humor, well developed characters that you care about or, really, any redeeming qualities in a Broadway Show.

81
Great writing, Great acting, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You're open to a stripped down, thoughtful Broadway production with a great cast.

Don't see it if You are looking for a standard Broadway show or big budget production.

89
Delightful, Enchanting, Funny, Great staging, Clever

See it if You like a broad, inventive musical with a cast that looks like they are really enjoying themselves onstage.

Don't see it if You are very conservative or if you don't like the music of the GoGos.

95
Enchanting, Great acting, Great singing, Must see, Funny

See it if you like broadway musicals - this is one of the best. As a bonus, you get an unexpected history lesson on the creation of classic songs.

Don't see it if you don't like musicals.

Desperate Measures
Midtown W
Clever, Funny, Raunchy, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you like a good time at the theater without a ton of thinking.

Don't see it if you are too stuck up to enjoy the great effort the actors are making with material that is a bit thin over the course of the show. #letitgo

For a previous production
Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Hilarious, Masterful

See it if you like slapstick farces combined with dry british humor; and if you like to laugh really, really, really hard.

Don't see it if you are "too cool for school"; as you really need to let your hair down and share in the fun with the actors on stage

Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Great writing, Relevant

See it if you want to see a great, thought provoking show with great acting.

Don't see it if you don't like Shakespeare or you are not willing to tolerate a show that is too long for its own good.
