Clever, Delightful, Funny, Original, Quirky

See it if you want a raucous, raunchy evening of foot-stomping good time featuring thieves, fools, lovers and banjos.

Don't see it if you can't stand bluegrass, banjos or raunchy story lines.

Clever, Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Lyrical

See it if you enjoy beautiful music written by two of the theater's best, a witty story with a variety of different characters & a charming production

Don't see it if you do not care for musicals, even a candy box style revival of a piece that is not produced enough.

Absorbing, Entertaining, Epic, Soaring, Operatic

See it if you want to see a beautiful production of a show that has become a Broadway perennial. Fabulous music and actors and staging

Don't see it if You do not enjoy long shows, if you do not care for shows that are almost completely sung-through, intricately plotted, multi-generational

On The Town
Midtown W
Delightful, Exquisite, Great staging, Masterful, Refreshing

See it if you love to see a great revival of a classic show originally staged in the 40's during WWII and staged in that format now. Fabulous dancing

Don't see it if you are not fond of older (albeit classic) musicals. This show is not like the movie of On The Town -- if that is what you expect.

During previews
Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Hilarious

See it if See Real Men: The Musical if you enjoy review style shows with witty songs and sketches about all stages in men's lives, funny and sad.

Don't see it if Skip Real Men: The Musical if you do not enjoy review-style shows with small (although very talented) casts dealing with one subject

Something Rotten!
Midtown W
Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Hilarious, Refreshing

See it if See Something Rotten! if you love all Musical Comedies, Shakespeare, great music and tap dancing and incredible performers.

Don't see it if Skip Something Rotten! if you do not care for musicals or their history, if you know nothing about Shakespeare and could care less.

Wicked (Broadway)
Midtown W
Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Funny, Intelligent

See it if You will enjoy Wicked whether you know anything about the Wizard of Oz or not. It is one of the most magical, musical shows I have seen!

Don't see it if Do not see Wicked if you are looking for a more adult or intellectually oriented show -- if you are, you probably do not want a musical.

Operatic, Epic, Overrated, Classic

See it if you have not seen it before, you should experience at least once. The music is classic and the sweep of the show operatic.

Don't see it if you expect quite the same performances that you have heard from the Original London or Broadway casts of so many years ago.

Avenue Q (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Delightful, Funny, Original, Puppet friendly

See it if you enjoyed watching Sesame Street as a kid and would enjoy seeing it all kind of grownup and mixed up and adult.

Don't see it if you have issues with some mild obscentity, do not enjoy shows that use puppets as characters, want something deeper than a light comedy.

Profound, Original, Masterful, Entertaining, Must see

See it if you are taking your family out for a fantastical, beautifully executed masterpiece of stage adaptation of the animated film

Don't see it if you have no interest in a show that is based on a cartoon -- even a really good one, and the African music is not for you

Delightful, Exquisite, Great acting, Masterful, Must see

See it if you enjoy a large, beautiful revival of one of Rodgers & Hammerstein's very best works, with a wonderful cast and amazing orchestra

Don't see it if you do not care for revivals of older shows, shows with large casts, conflicting ideals, or an unhappy (by most views) ending.

Clever, Delightful, Hilarious, Masterful, Entertaining

See it if See GGLAM if you enjoy great acting, especially by one man playing eight characters, great singing of great songs and fun.

Don't see it if Skip GGLAM if you do not care for British humor, light musicals, intricate plotting involving murder and mayhem and fabulously witty fun!

Midtown W
Absorbing, Entertaining, Great acting, Intelligent, Profound

See it if Allegiance illuminates a sadly forgotten mistake of huge proportion made by the US Government in treatment of Japanese-Americans during WWII

Don't see it if Skip Allegiance if you are bored by history, even with a good score and great performers. This is a relatively serious musical.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Intelligent, Original

See it if See The Book Of Mormon if you enjoy irreverent humor, brilliantly written and incredibly well performed and staged.

Don't see it if Don't see this show if you have problems with cursing, scatological humor, or have an issue with humor based on a particular religion.
