Wtf?, Insipid, Disappointing, Confusing, Banal

See it if you found free tickets on the sidewalk . . well, actually, just throw the tickets in the trash.

Don't see it if you prefer a good Saturday afternoon nap . . . well, actually, you could nap during the show.

Also I'm sorry; trust me, I LOVE theatre. This show is one of the craziest ... Read more Read less

Tear jerker, Resonant, Must see, Profound, Absorbing

See it if you want to be entertained, fully engaged, and moved to tears in a show that barely lets you take a breath. STUNNING, GORGEOUS, MIRACULOUS.

Don't see it if reflecting on our 9/11 in New York City is too difficult for you. This is a truly profound look at some tough memories.

Intelligent, Great writing, Great acting, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you want to be moved with a story that stays with you for a very long time.

Don't see it if you don't like intense two-person plays. This show moves along at a nice clip, but some might still find it slow.

Also I will have to say that I was not always an MLP fan (Mary-Louise Parke... Read more Read less

Bizarre, Thought-provoking, Slow, Confusing, Disappointing

See it if you're a fan of Will Eno; this is one of his darkest and confusing.

Don't see it if you're not a fan of Will Eno! For us, it was really confusing and slow. Honestly, after a few weeks, we completely forgot the story line.

Chasing the River
Midtown W
Slow, Insipid, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if you enjoy plays that have potential; but there is much work yet to do.

Don't see it if stories of sexual child abuse disturb you. Also, the actors just push too hard and the performances are overblown for such a small space.

Also There is potential with this story but it definitely needs much refini... Read more Read less

Upper W Side
Intelligent, Great writing, Edgy, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy plays that take on serious subjects and knock it out of the park!

Ridiculous, Insipid, Excruciating, Cliched, Banal

See it if you are a HUGE fan of Meatloaf's music. But you MUST really love his music, because the use of his material is absolutely horrid.

Don't see it if you have a life. This is the worst show of the year in NYC. Even with a multi-million dollar production budget, it's a waste of space.

69
Mindbending, Intelligent, Funny, Clever

See it if you enjoy being baffled by a great story teller with amazing slight of hand. Derren is truly wonderful in front of a large house.

Don't see it if you are a magic show genius. His "tricks" are pretty easy to figure out and it's rather obvious that he uses plants at each show.

Scotland, PA
Midtown W
Great acting, Delicious, Funny, Clever, Entertaining

See it if you want just a fun night at the theatre. The story is a bit cliched, but it's all tongue in cheek and such a blast.

The Shadow Box
East Village
Slow, Confusing, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if you are a fan of the playwright.

Don't see it if you expect top notch performances from NYC actors, as well as professional set design and lighting. It's a great play, just poorly executed

81
Resonant, Exquisite, Great acting, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy beautifully-nuanced performances and a sadly relevant message. The direction, lighting, costumes, and playwright's words are WOW!

Don't see it if stories about mental health are not your thing.

88
Justdamnfun!, Funtabulous!, Must see, Exquisite, Delightful

See it if you want to see Broadway at its best. The story itself is not as powerful as the film, but this musical is just damn fun!

Don't see it if you are allergic to spectacular entertainment, A-list performances, and the best costumes on Broadway.

Insipid, Disappointing, Cliched, Excruciating

See it if Sorry, I've got nothing.

Don't see it if You value your hard earned money. Go see anything off off Broadway instead of this. I give it 5 months.... Maybe.
