PLAY!
Midtown W
Refreshing, Fluffy, Delightful

See it if you are looking for (or don't mind) a 1/2 solo performance and 1/2 participatory experience

Don't see it if you want a traditional theatrical experience; you don't want to get up and act a fool with strangers (even though you should!)

Remembrance
Financial
Riveting, Great staging, Enchanting, Clever

See it if you are into immersive theatre - this is one of the better productions

Don't see it if the subject of Alzheimer's might make you uncomfortable; don't like "choose your own adventure" style (you wont get the full story)

Thought-provoking, Great acting, Relevant, Intelligent

See it if you want insight into the black experience; like engaging monologues; are a fan of Shakespeare's work

Don't see it if a black man expressing frustration makes you feel like you're being lectured at; you want more interaction between the characters

Toni Stone
Midtown W
Slow, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if you're interested in the subject matter and want to see a good ensemble.

Don't see it if you need a story with a little more action and excitement. It's fine, but not WOW.

75
Ambitious, Confusing, Great acting, Enchanting

See it if the subject of China-US relations is interesting to you; you want to see a play about a film set in the 1920s; you want multi-levels of plot

Don't see it if you want a clear story (what's the deal with dystopian future Brooklyn? What's going on?)

Queen of Hearts
Brooklyn
Must see, Raunchy, Edgy, Exquisite, Entertaining

See it if you are a fan of this company (I found it to be one of their stronger productions); like a good burlesque/ballet mashup.

Don't see it if you don't like risque performances; want the story (these are vignettes); are annoyed by audience members taking constant photos and video.

Also LOVE this company, but hate that they encourage photography. Audience ... Read more Read less

See it if you want a light and fluffy, entertaining musical with catchy numbers.

Don't see it if you want something modern or more serious/substantive

Intense, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you want to see a solid production of a classic; you don't mind a 3 hour performance, although it moves quickly

Don't see it if you might find a small, warm room (in a 4th floor walk-up!) with clackity A/C bothersome; you don't want a bare bones production

Also Some uneven acting, but the leads are great. There is some weird doubl... Read more Read less

The Bigot
Midtown W
Great acting, Funny, Cliched, Banal

See it if you have nothing better going on. It's fine, and even enjoyable, but just kinda "blah" and predictable.

Don't see it if you need more substance and want to be challenged.

Slow, Excruciating, Disappointing

See it if you want to see a production of this play specifically; want to support small theaters

85
Unfolding
Midtown W
Slow, Quirky, Delightful, Enchanting

See it if you like puppetry and want to see something beautiful and unusual.

Don't see it if you need a lot of action or an easy to follow story (it gets a little abstract at the end - or maybe I just didn't "get it")

80
Relevant, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you like music and improv (you don't have to be a rap fan to enjoy it) and a different approach to theater and learning about science!

Don't see it if you aren't into solo shows, or need high production value.

Funny, Entertaining, Hilarious

See it if you don't need much of a story; are really into Poe and like watching scenes play out in interesting rooms; good (but loud) soundtrack.

Feral
Midtown E
Masterful, Entertaining, Quirky, Clever

See it if you enjoy non-traditional performance focusing on illustration, projection, puppetry, film, and foley. It's unusual and cute.

Proof of Love
West Village
Great acting, Fluffy, Cliched, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you like a little melodrama; you want to see a solo show that covers race and class and is set in a hospital (nice set!)

Don't see it if a 75 minute monologue that's a bit predictable wont cut it for you. I found it engaging, but at times not very realistic
