Banal, Cliched, Dated, Disappointing, Indulgent

See it if you're a big fan of Samantha Barks, Andy Karl, or the film (well, maybe) and are able to forgive an utterly and inconceivably dull score.

Don't see it if you're looking for a good musical score. You won't find it here. You will a half-hearted attempt to update a story better left alone.

Also Unfortunately, "Pretty Woman" was pretty disappointing. The original m... Read more Read less

Super fun dance/workout class for all skill levels!

See it if you're workout playlist consists of Broadway showtunes...or you're looking to try something new!

Don't see it if you don't like cardio-workout classes (although this was low-impact and pressure, so all skill levels would be fine!)...or showtunes (??)

Also If you're looking to shake up your workout routine, this is definitely... Read more Read less

The Parisian Woman

Banal, Cliched, Disappointing

See it if you're a huge Uma Thurman fan, or like political dramas.

Don't see it if you're looking for something clever or intriguing. This is a far cry from "House of Cards" or "The West Wing."

Also Incredibly on the nose. The plot twists are obvious and the jokes are ... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Indulgent, Fluffy, Entertaining

See it if you're willing to leave your attachment to the animated film at the door, or are looking for a sweet musical for the family.

Don't see it if you're looking for an exact recreation of the animated film. There are some serious plot diversions in this one.

Delightful, Exquisite, Great acting, Hilarious, Must see

See it if you're looking for a big, bold, classic Broadway musical.

Don't see it if you're looking for something edgy, or a reinterpretation of a classic.

Also Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous. This is a love letter to Golden Age musi... Read more Read less

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Epic, Resonant, Relevant, Must see, Masterful

See it if you want to see a groundbreaking musical, with incredible choreography and a truly amazing story.

Don't see it if you don't like hip hop or rap as a genres, or don't enjoy "through-sung" musicals. A huge portion of the plot is told through the songs.

Also I don't use the word "groundbreaking" lightly when describing this sho... Read more Read less

Marvin's Room
Midtown W
Clever, Profound, Resonant

See it if you're fans of the cast and/or enjoy a family drama.

Don't see it if you're looking for something edgy - or particularly fast-paced. The show is slow at some points.

War Horse
Upper W Side
Ambitious, Exquisite, Great staging, Masterful, Great acting

See it if you loved the movie, love puppets, or are the mood for a good cry.

Don't see it if you didn't love the movie, don't love puppets, or don't have a slew of tissues handy!

A beautiful piece of theater, bursting with spectacular acting. janet mcteer is an absolute treasure.

See it if you like period pieces, thought-provoking work, or meaty plays. Or, if you're a classical theater or Shakespeare buff.

Don't see it if you prefer shorter works, cutting-edge work, or musicals. This is traditional, proscenium theater at its best, but brief it is not.

Also Janet McTeer is an honest-to-goodness theatrical treasure and is absol... Read more Read less

Delightful, Enchanting, Profound, Beautifully creative

See it if you enjoy stories that evoke the storytelling style of fables or folklore, or are looking for an immensely creative production.

Don't see it if you're looking for a fairytale with a happy ending. While it certainly ends on a hopeful not, it is not your traditional "happy ending."

Also An absolutely stunning production, with delightful staging, choreograp... Read more Read less

Delightful, Entertaining, Quirky, Innovative, Big-hearted

See it if you like pop-y, colorful musical! It's not "just" for the family, by any means. Adults who are looking for a fun night out will also enjoy.

Don't see it if you don't like SpongeBob (the cartoon) or want to see something particularly "edgy."

Also This show is not for the cynic! It is fun, blithe, and big-hearted. Th... Read more Read less

Dated, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if you like the music of Carole King, or are a fan of jukebox musicals. This is a sweet, honest show.

Don't see it if you do NOT like the musical of Carole King, or are looking for something terribly edgy.

Absorbing, Enchanting, Great singing, Intelligent, Refreshing

See it if you like "small" musicals. It's poignant and thoughtful - both in the story and the production.

Don't see it if you're looking for a grandiose production or a big, "Golden Age" musical.

Also A lovely piece of art that sticks with you after the fact. It doesn't ... Read more Read less

Indulgent, Entertaining, Funny, Incredibly fun!

See it if if you're a Jimmy Buffett fan or looking for a fun, light-hearted evening at the theater.

Don't see it if you're looking for high art. This is pure fluff, complete with a little paper umbrella.

Also It's got about as many bad tropical puns and bawdy jokes as a two-act ... Read more Read less

Great singing, Must see, Profound, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if you want to be amazed by power-house song after power-house song.

Don't see it if you are in the mood for something light or comic - this one will give you feels, for sure.

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Enchanting, Great singing, Epic, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you want to experience a contemporary Broadway classic with some serious vocal powerhouses.

Don't see it if you're in the mood for a thought-provoking drama...or not a fan of belting.
