Dido of Idaho
Midtown W
Ambitious, Edgy, Intense, Slow

See it if You enjoy character-driven pieces and want to see a new playwright's voice

Don't see it if You don't enjoy violence on stage, or if you want a story totally rooted in reality

Clever, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if you want an evening of theatre that makes you think and feel, but doesn't weigh you down too heavily

The Infinite Wrench
East Village
Ambitious, Clever, Entertaining, Edgy, Indulgent

See it if you like improv, on-the-nose and underscored comedy, or you want to see something but you have no idea what (you'll probably find it here!)

Don't see it if you care about structure, polish, or cohesiveness

Also I've seen both "Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind" and "The Infin... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Great acting, Intelligent, Refreshing, Must see

See it if Everyone should see this (or read it now that it has closed, or catch a regional production or a recording). Everyone.

Don't see it if you're just looking for a commercial musical. It's thought-provoking, but also hilariously entertaining, so everyone should give it a shot!

Also A Doll's House Part 2 is one of the few plays on Broadway that I watch... Read more Read less

1984 (Broadway)
Midtown W
Intense, Riveting, Clever, Masterful, Provocative

See it if you enjoy conceptually intelligent, masterfully staged productions that leave you reflective (and a little shaken).

Don't see it if you're only looking for a night of fun entertainment, or if strobe lights, intense soundscapes, or torture bother you.

Also 1984 is not for the casual theatre-goer who is just looking for a nice... Read more Read less

Oedipus El Rey
East Village
Ambitious, Cliched, Disappointing, Indulgent, Relevant

See it if you enjoy the work of the playwright/want to see a modern retelling of a classic

Don't see it if you are looking for a *fresh* take on a classic, or if you are wanting something less ambitious

Also I was very disappointed with this show. The playwright's notes stated ... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Ambitious, Great writing, Intelligent, Riveting

See it if you're a fan of Rajiv Joseph's work, or you just want a night of epic theatre

Don't see it if you don't have the patience for a 3 hour play or if you have no interest in Russian history

Also I never thought I would be so captivated by a 3 hour show with two int... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Confusing, Entertaining, Disappointing, Quirky

See it if you want to see good, committed acting in entertaining, dynamic characters through a string of fun musical numbers.

Don't see it if you care about cohesion, consistency, or insightfulness. An entertaining time, but it needs some significant work as a whole.

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

See it if you're looking for something to make your sides hurt with laughter, or if you want to feel "in" on a show's behind-the-scenes workings

Don't see it if you're looking for thought-provoking drama, substantive plot, or strong character development

See it if you want to see two powerhouse vocalists with songs clearly written for them

Don't see it if you are looking for a thoughtful show with deep substance

Also War Paint was certainly enjoyable, but it was clearly written for its ... Read more Read less
