Enchanting, Ambitious, Creative, Magical

See it if you like really good fan-fiction, a redemption for the Malfoy's, or want REALLY amazing effects! Nothing like this out there on the stage.

Don't see it if you want anything serious or powerful. Great for Potter fans, not so much for "serious" theater fans.

Company (Broadway)
Midtown W
Thought-provoking, Profound, Masterful, Exquisite, Clever

See it if you're a human going through life's ups and downs. Take solace in relatable characters. Laugh, cry, smug..all of the emotions! Truly a must!

Don't see it if you aren't open to looking in a mirror and taking in the hard questions about commitment and relationships.

75
Clyde's (Broadway)
Midtown W
Funny, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if you enjoy stories of second chances and creating meaningful communities within a marginalized community

Don't see it if you aren't patient, it's a little slow moving but go with it! Or if you don't like the perfect, happy ending for all.

63
Great dancing, Clever, Disappointing, Slow

See it if you like a great tap number and Carmen Cusack giving her all. Or a really "out there" plot.

Don't see it if you don't like long shows, LOTS of repetitive dream sequences, not much of a plot besides 3 celebrities tripping

Great acting, Slow, Relevant, Confusing

See it if you like seeing LaChanze on stage, or want to see strong performances by Cooper and Zegen. Very relevant to today!

Don't see it if you don't like physical humor or want a deep, thought-provoking plot

92
Riveting, Great staging, Great acting, Exquisite, Absorbing

See it if you love ingenuity on stage, brilliance all around, three hours went by in a flash

Don't see it if you can't sit for three hours, the two intermissions went by the slowest!

75
Slow, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Great singing

See it if you enjoy plots about race, family, and hope in the face of loss. Clarke shines!

Don't see it if you don't like fully sung-through musicals or somewhat confusing sub-plots. (or not a fan of personification)

The Visitor
East Village
Refreshing, Great staging, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if you enjoy a very relevant story of allyship and connection, or if you want a happy-go-lucky plot.

Don't see it if you want something that will hook you from the very beginning, this takes a little to get into.

Hilarious, Absorbing, Dated, Intense, Great acting

See it if you love intense drama about real life and the illusions we make up to be seen as happy. It’s deep! Metcalf is spectacular and haunting

Don't see it if you live two lives- one in public and a different, filtered one through social media. You’ll be upset by this.

Great acting, Relevant, Quirky, Slow, Disappointing

See it if you enjoy Tracy Letts' work, want to see a great ensemble cast. Armie Hammer and Austin Pendleton are great!

Don't see it if if you're more conservative politically, or easily confused by politics. It was just kind of boring and weird by the end...

Medea (BAM)
Brooklyn
Riveting, Must see, Masterful, Exquisite, Absorbing

See it if you want to see masters at work-Byrne is a whirlwind of emotions. And see a set that’s so full of life while being blank.

Don't see it if you’re scared of real and raw emotions of today’s life playing out on stage. Or easily squeamish by blood.

Great writing, Resonant, Refreshing, Great staging, Ambitious

See it if you like interwoven stories all under one roof and a fan of Dylan. The music is moving and mystifying.

West Side Story
Midtown W
Refreshing, Epic, Masterful, Exquisite, Absorbing

See it if you like minimalist theater or very "artsy" pieces. This is VERY not traditional.

Don't see it if you want a straight-up classic WSS. This is part live movie and very dance heavy

Great staging, Hoaxy, Overrated, Fluffy, Cliched

See it if you love beautiful sets and beautiful people wearing incredible costumes. Aaron Tveit's voice shines through

Don't see it if you want to see anything of substance or serious. Serious scene's songs got chuckles.

Entertaining, Great acting, Slow, Overrated

See it if you like Dinklage and Jones from their other projects. Very cool to see them up close doing their thing

Soft Power
East Village
Ambitious, Relevant, Funny, Great staging, Clever

See it if you want to challenge the meaning of what an American is and want to see the King and I turned on its head

Don't see it if a politicized show isn't your thing, or conservative. This show is very politically left-leaning. As a liberal I liked it, so be warned.

73
The Wrong Man
Midtown W
Relevant, Refreshing, Great singing, Great acting, Clever

See it if you want the Joshua Henry show. It's about 95% him (which isn't a bad thing necessarily)

Don't see it if you want a happy or justified ending. Also if you don't like repetition, you won't enjoy this

Excruciating, Edgy, Great writing, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if the inside look at the "perfect" family intrigues you. From start to finish it is painful and hard to watch and that makes it amazing

Don't see it if you are uncomfortable with being challenged by a musical. This is not fluffy, it's deep.

54
Overrated, Disappointing, Fluffy, Dizzying

See it if you are a teen or love the Percy Jackson books.

Don't see it if you want to see anything spectacular or something truly Broadway worthy. The house was fairly empty..

90
Must see, Masterful, Brillant, Funny, Exquisite

See it if you love FLS from past shows or TV, like rap and story telling

Scotland, PA
Midtown W
Epic, Great writing, Great acting, Intense, Clever

See it if you want to see a smart, new take of Shakespeare. Great cast who play their roles very well!

Don't see it if you want to leave the theater humming any tunes. Good songs, but nothing memorable

Don't see it if you want the traditional fairy tale ending

78

Don't see it if you want to see something more contemporary on stage, or anything new-aged

80
Profound, Great acting, Exquisite, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you want to be challenged to think differently, to think more about our future as a country

Toe-tapping, Fun, Great songs, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if you love Motown and want to know the backstory on The Temps.

Don't see it if you want to see a show with all new original music, or a archetype that’s new, it’s in the same vein as other jukebox musicals

Slow, Raunchy, Quirky, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you want to see a Broadway adaptation of the movie. Parts of the plot changed to fit on the stage. More hilarious than the film IMO

Don't see it if you want the exact movie or any real moving plot. You want something that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Refreshing, Minimalistic, Simplistic, Avant-garde, Artsy

Don't see it if you don't have a creative imagination or want to be close (on in) the action

69
Cartoonish, Futuristic, Overrated, Edgy, Ambitious

See it if you are in High School or love sci-fi. Great singing specifically from George Salazar.

Don't see it if you want to see anything profound or mature. It’s oddly similar to Little Shop..

Superhero
Midtown W
Refreshing, Relevant, Entertaining, Delightful, Clever

See it if you want a not so happy, happy ending and great singing

Don't see it if you want to be blown away by a story. Great arch but second half needs a bit tweaking.
