Aladdin (Broadway)
Midtown W
Masterful, Entertaining, Enchanting, Delightful, Clever

See it if you love a classic Disney story and magic on stage

Don't see it if you don't like the audience filled with kids and tourists. You might see a flash or two go off

Rooted, Great staging, Funny, Delightful, Classic

See it if you want the most classic music theater piece in the most classic music theater way. Also if you want to see the stars up close!

Don't see it if you want a large scale production. This is very rooted is its start in a small theater

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

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.

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.

Must see, Masterful, Brillant, Funny, Exquisite

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

Slow, Quirky, Dizzying, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if you like Nathan Lane and dick jokes

Don't see it if you want to see anything substantial. Plot is frail and script is confusing

83
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

Great staging, Intense, Epic, Disappointing, Great puppeteering

See it if you want to see unbelievable pupeteering. King Kong himself steals the show!

Don't see it if you want to see something of substance. The music doesn’t fit the time period (rap and auto-tune), acting that is outshined by a puppet.

Also This show isn’t sustainable. See it once to see the puppet and there i... Read more Read less

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)

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

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

See it if you love the movie or are a fan of Andy Karl or Samantha Barks. It stays true to the film.
