Excruciating, Banal, Disappointing

See it if ...you want to see celebrities on stage (even if they are awful and over-the-top and have zero authenticity or real emotion) - nice set

Don't see it if ...you want to see a production with ANY emotion/connection. It's so over-the-top, & doesn't have one genuine moment where you feel it.

Also Was looking forward to this as like Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale. Th... Read more Read less

Great staging, Relevant, Ambitious, Thought-provoking

See it if like a STRONG underlying concept about struggle & survival, smart & meaningful design, & NOT the usual cookie-cutter theatrical experience!

Don't see it if you like the boring, realistic theater that has become so prevalent, or want a fully finished script as this is still in development

Also wonderful design that makes you think and feel, strong performances (a... Read more Read less

Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Must see, Great staging

See it if Wow - A Christmas Carol like it was meant to be experienced. From beginning to end, felt taken care of (minced pie, mulled wine, warmth...)

Don't see it if If you are a Scrooge!

Also Nostalgic setting for this Christmas classic. If this doesn't get you ... Read more Read less

Great staging, Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Entertaining

See it if - you want a full theatrical experience - you like unique settings - you appreciate hospitality & community - you want to be engaged

Don't see it if - you only like proscenium theatre - you prefer to pay a lot for a quality theatrical experience (here only $20 with drinks and more)

Also This new theater company, Sea Dog, addresses questions of alienation a... Read more Read less

Indulgent, Overrated, Resonant

See it if you like the writer (I do but not this time), want a social commentary show that doesn't go too far (one note)

Don't see it if like strong/decent acting/direction - want more than occasional moments of insightful writing - some good monologues

Also opening was great, but theme/depth doesn't go much past that throughou... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Cliched, Fluffy, Delightful, Overrated

See it if you like lighter (fluffier) Broadway musicals, if you want something fun and decent

Don't see it if you are annoyed by amplification like me, want real heart and depth

In Transit
Midtown W
Entertaining, Cliched, Delightful, Great singing

See it if you want fun, well-performed entertainment

Don't see it if you expect something deep and life-altering

Disappointing, Overrated, Banal

See it if you've never been to something like this (experiential theatre)

Don't see it if you have been to any experiential theatre as this just doesn't cut it - quite disappointing

Poison
Midtown W
Riveting, Profound, Great writing, Absorbing, Thought-provoking

See it if love deep, real, honest theatre that will touch you, and phenomenal writing, acting, and directing/staging.

Don't see it if only like Broadway musicals or are afraid of deep subjects even though it offers so much light and hope too

98
Thought-provoking, Profound, Great writing, Great staging, Must see

See it if you want original theater that is thought-provoking, unique, and deep, and if you are tired of the same-old and want something smart & fresh

Don't see it if you want and expect kitchen-sink drama that tells you what and how to think and is all tied up in a bow at the end

Clever, Great acting, Great writing, Resonant, Thought-provoking

See it if You're a Will Eno fan - while Wakey Wakey (100 score) makes you feel AND think, this makes you think (missing the feeling).

Don't see it if You don't like Will Eno or Michael C. Hall - who is BRILLIANT in this

Entertaining, Great singing, Great staging, Delightful, Refreshing

See it if you love talent ...and energy, and more talent! cast is cohesive, tight, and so talented. great energy!

Don't see it if you need a show with a story - it's a show that highlights the music of leiber and stoller and boy, does this cast do them justice!

Chelsea
Thought-provoking, Relevant, Profound, Intelligent, Great staging

See it if you like innovation, something different, something that makes you think and care, a unique theatrical (immersive) experience

Don't see it if you are a traditionalist who doesn't like immersive, original theatre/experiences

Disappointing, Banal, Funny

See it if you get a free ticket (easily can); enjoy Candice Glover like I do, don't care about heart, energy, stage presence, professionalism...

Don't see it if you expect performers to not be terrified, expect singers to connect with song and audience, expect any heart/authenticity

Also Bianca was terrified and can NOT sing - total train wreck as was "host... Read more Read less

Burning Doors
East Village
Relevant, Riveting, Intense, Must see, Edgy

See it if you like physical, honest, powerful theatre; if you're not afraid of intense and relevant subject matter (and nudity)

Don't see it if you can't handle honest intense real-life theatre about political abuse; if nudity makes you uncomfortable; if you only like light theatre

Also so gripping, powerful, intense. while inspired by real-life events in ... Read more Read less

Great staging, Relevant, Intelligent, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy relevant theatre - well-staged, performed, and put together

Don't see it if you want to feel the characters and want more depth - this was more about the historic story than the characters in the story

Also Rebecca's Taichman's direction is strong, very strong. lots of YES mom... Read more Read less

Great acting, Ambitious, Relevant

See it if you love great actors - Zainab Jah in the lead is quite marvelous and Birgit Huppoch is masterful (WOW). A Green & K Mambo are wonderful.

Don't see it if you like tight and relevant direction (question many choices). Lots of bright spots with writing but 20 minutes or more can be cut/tightened

Also Liked a lot about this show but some questionable directorial choices.... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Great writing, Great staging, Must see, Masterful

See it if you care about wonderful writing (deep, poignant, moving, life-affirming, smart) & if you want to see wonderful actors beautifully directed

The Encounter
Midtown W
Disappointing, Overrated, Slow

See it if You are into gimmicks (sound gimmick was unique and fun at first but only for a few minutes)

Don't see it if You care about story, which doesn't hold up.
