Intense, Funny, Great acting

See it if Excellent acting - Laurie Metcalf is a force. This production is well done, with humor at times. It’s long but the actors do Albee justice.

Don't see it if You have no interest in seeing 2 couples spend a night on an emotional roller coaster.

Hangmen (Broadway)
Midtown W
Masterful, Absorbing

See it if You appreciate good theater. The accents made it somewhat difficult to catch every word. I missed some lines which I regret. Great ensemble

Don't see it if You have trouble with accents. You’ll miss too much and could have trouble following the plot.

73
Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if You like mother daughter dynamics. This is not very flattering to Bess Myerson but it is her daughter’s journey to where she is today.

Don't see it if You don’t like one person plays or have no interest in a daughter’s journey with her mother’s fame, etc.

Great acting, Ambitious

See it if This show is about 3 generations told in 3 stories. They are told at once and it’s difficult to focus. Acting is good - Carla Gugino shines

Don't see it if The stories are about mental illness. If you prefer linear shows, this isn’t for you.

Grand Horizons

Funny, Entertaining

See it if You appreciate seeing a great cast act as an ensemble. Jane Alexander & James Cromwell play a couple who are ready to end their marriage.

Don't see it if You are offended by dialogue of a sexual manner. Michael Urie is great as their gay son.

The Inheritance
Midtown W
Masterful, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You are a theatergoer who appreciates excellent ensemble acting. It is well done. It is profound and yet has lots of comical moments.

Don't see it if You are adverse to over 3 hours of theater. If gay themes offend you, this is not the show for you.

Also The staging was simple but perfect for storytelling. There were no dis... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You enjoy a revue of songs. Five singers sing from Maury Yeston’s songbook. It’s 70-80 minutes and is entertaining.

Don't see it if You prefer following a plot. This is a revue and the songs stand alone.

Thought-provoking, Resonant, Ambitious

See it if You enjoy plays that make you think. This is a series of vignettes about life. It is well acted.

See it if Kate Mulgrew is a force of nature. This play humanizes Marie Curie and delves into a true friendship between 2 women. Wonderful dialogue

Entertaining, Relevant, Edgy

See it if You enjoy Alanis’ music. I wasn’t loving it at first but I got swept away in the second act. Breakout performance - Lauren Patten.

Don't see it if You prefer traditional musicals. Some numbers are loud and hard to understand the words.

Great singing, Entertaining

See it if you love and admire Tina Turner. Adrienne Warren's energy is electric. The young actress playing her is superb. Had a great time.

Don't see it if you have no interest in Tina Turner's life and music.

See it if You appreciate a wordy play carried off beautifully by Mary Louise Parker. There is hardly a set, it’s all about the story told by MLP.

Don't see it if You don’t like 2 character plays. This is not a piece of fluff -

Great acting, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy plays written by Tracy Letts. Great performances. There are some funny lines and a story that holds your interest.

Don't see it if Nudity offends you - there is quite a bit. It is about a 50 year old man who is quite a mess!

Intelligent, Provocative, Ambitious

See it if You’re open to dialogue about race. I heard an audience member say as she was leaving , “It was funny and then it wasn’t “.

Don't see it if You are opposed to nudity on stage, or discussion about race.

Also I didn’t know what to expect going into the show. I liked more than I ... Read more Read less

Great acting, Absorbing, Moving

See it if You appreciate listening to a monologue. I found each monologue to be moving. Jake Gyllenhaal was excellent. A great night of theater.

Don't see it if You need action. If one person shows are not your thing, skip it. This is a show with 2 monologues

Entertaining, Enchanting

See it if You enjoy musicals. Amber Gray is a delight. I am not a fan of myth related themes, but I was swept away.

Don't see it if Musicals are not your thing.

Great acting, Funny

See it if you like 2 character plays. The acting is great. I had seen the show years ago and it stands up to today's world.

Don't see it if conversation between two people does not interest you.

All My Sons
Midtown W
Absorbing, Great acting, Intelligent

See it if You appreciate Arthur Miller and great acting. Tracy Letts and Annette Benning are excellent as the parents.

Don't see it if You have no interest in a story taking place in 1947. These characters go through a lot of turmoil- it is not a happy play.

The Minutes
Midtown W
Great cast

See it if You’re a fan of Tracy Letts. The cast is great but they don’t all get a chance to shine. Blair Brown, specifically, is under used.

Don't see it if The play has an interesting premise but the end is bizarre. Tracy Letts has a message but it didn’t deliver for me.

West Side Story
Midtown W
Great music and choreography

See it if You are curious about this very different production. I was not a fan of the screen projections. This is innovative but didn’t enhance.

Don't see it if You are a purist. This is a tougher version - gangs are prominent and I didn’t really feel the love story. I guess that’s due to it

Also being one act.

Delightful, Wonderful cast, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy wonderful productions of familiar shows. Beth Malone is terrific. It’s a reminder of a strong woman who made her way in the world.

Don't see it if You don’t like traditional musicals. The show is 2 1/2 hours and it could be shorter.

The Perplexed

Great set, interesting characters

See it if You like stories about dysfunctional families. Interesting dialogue but not memorable.

Don't see it if You have no interest in family drama. Two and a half hours is too long for this play.

Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You are interested in seeing a fine ensemble led by the excellent Blair Underwood and David Alan Grier.

Don't see it if racial themes disturb you. This is a murder mystery.

75
Nicely done

See it if You’re a fan of Harry Hamlin and/or Stefanie Powers. The play is 80 minutes, 3 vignettes and it was nice to see these 2 performers.

Don't see it if You prefer profound dramas. This show is far from that. The two play brother and sister and it’s nice to see their interaction.

78
Great singing, Entertaining

See it if You’re a true Harry Connick fan. He plays homage to Cole Porter but I didn’t always like the spin he put on classic songs.

Don't see it if You enjoy your standards done w/o a jazzy spin. If you’re not interested in Cole Porter you won’t appreciate the info HCJ provides.

Good acting, Resonant

See it if You are a fan of Len Cariou and Craig Bierko. The story is about a son and his aging dad. It certainly rings true for a lot of families.

Don't see it if You are bothered by predictable shows or if father - son relationships don’t interest you.

79
Great music, Entertaining

See it if You love the music from Evita. It was great hearing the score again. I wasn’t crazy about all the performers but it was still enjoyable.

Don't see it if You expect it to be like the original production.

Intelligent, Great acting

See it if You enjoy Horton Foote’s plays. Kristine Nielsen and Aidan Quinn give great performances. They play very well off each other.

Don't see it if You prefer action to dialogue. The play is dated but that didn’t stop me from enjoying it. This could have been a one act play.

85
Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You enjoy impromptu theater. It is funny and cleverly done. Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen were brought onstage from the audience. A blast!

Don't see it if You detest rap. If you only like a scripted show, this is not for you.

Great acting, Ambitious

See it if Jonathan Pryce and Eileen Atkins are masterful. They give excellent performances. The play is confusing- there are many shifts.

Don't see it if You need a straight forward show with a simple plot. You must pay attention to the dialogue.

Make Believe
Midtown W
Thought-provoking, Ambitious

See it if You like shows that make you think. The show has no intermission but it’s 2 sets of actors portrayed over time. It’s a dysfunctional family

Don't see it if You only like happy shows with answers provided. There are some holes in the story.

72
Good music, Loud

See it if You enjoy Meat Loaf’s music. Performers are energetic and do a good job delivering the songs.

Don't see it if Loud music bothers you. I felt it was way too loud. The story line is minimal.
