About:  I followed in the footsteps of my mother who was a community theater actress in CA. We were both in many plays put on by several different theater companies in our town, and I never lost the acting bug. If I can't be on stage, I want to be watching someone else on stage -- live theater of any kind i... Read more Read less

The Paper Hat Game
Ambitious, Confusing, Disappointing, Excruciating, Overrated

See it if you like puppetry, you are looking for something completely different, and you don't mind repetition and the absence of a clear storyline.

Don't see it if you feel that visual beauty and originality cannot overcome a nonsensical story, slow pacing, and mind-numbing repetition

Banal, Excruciating, Indulgent, Slow, Insipid

See it if you don't have to pay for your ticket and you want to support a little theater company that obviously put a lot of time and effort into it.

Don't see it if you value your time and you are bothered by writing that needs to be edited, uneven acting, horrific blocking and laughably flimsy sets.

During previews
Clever, Delightful, Funny, Great acting, Original

See it if You appreciate magnificent acting and character development that unfolds in real time without your even knowing it - and you love Brits!

Don't see it if you get frustrated at trying to understand an unfamiliar accent; you can't bear silence; you don't like British comedy; you're easily bored.

Sleep No More
Absorbing, Enchanting, Ambitious, Masterful, Original

See it if you enjoy grand experiments and don't mind that what you experience isn't the same as what anyone else, even your companion, experiences.

Don't see it if you think audience members must be seated during a performance or if you have a problem being on your feet and moving around for two hours.

Original, Entertaining, Delightful, Fluffy, Refreshing

See it if you can go with a child or if you are a child at heart and you love bubbles.

Don't see it if you're too stuffy to attend a show that is basically geared towards children or if being around a lot of children gives you the creeps.

Profound, Resonant, Slow, Intense, Epic

See it if you have never seen it before.

Don't see it if you have seen a prior production that blew you away because it isn't as inspiring and moving this second time around.

Shear Madness
Midtown W
Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Fluffy, Cliched

See it if you like fast pacing, silly jokes, mugging and overacting that takes place on a wonderfully realistic set with (mostly) good actors.

Don't see it if you are bothered by lame jokes and an actor (only one, though) who is so amused by himself he can't stay in character.

Radiant Vermin
Midtown E
Clever, Ambitious, Funny, Edgy, Fluffy

See it if you love goofy British comedy and fast paced entertainment.

Don't see it if you don't like British comedy that is, at turns, insightful and farcical.

East Village
Ambitious, Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Original

See it if you like seeing talented dancers and percussionists giving their all to keep you entertained in a wildly original show.

Don't see it if you only appreciate standard fare or you don't like noise or you can't make it through an hour and 45 minutes without an intermission.

Ambitious, Exquisite, Riveting, Thought-provoking, Intense

See it if you ever had to "come out" to your parents about anything; if you appreciate excellent acting, writing, staging, and deep, powerful themes.

Don't see it if you think the "fun" in the title or the word "musical" means the play will be a light, frothy bit of silliness; you hate crying and intimacy

Clever, Entertaining, Hilarious, Relevant, Delightful

See it if you like fast-paced, original writing that will have you laughing so hard you are gasping for breath.

Don't see it if you have no sense of humor or you have no idea what is going on in the world.

Drunk Shakespeare
Midtown W
Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Hilarious, Original

See it if you love Shakespeare but don't mind great actors poking fun at the pomposity of most productions of his works.

Don't see it if you are unfamiliar with Shakespeare or you think he must be revered or you are offended by the concept of matching Macbeth with alcohol.

Clever, Entertaining, Great acting, Original, Overrated

See it if you haven't read the book, you appreciate good acting, and you don't mind a disappointing second act if it follows an inspired first act.

Don't see it if you read and loved the book because, although the lead actor is brilliant, the show falls short of matching the magic of the book.

Good singers wasted on sophomoric production

See it if you love music from the 70's, you like silly parodies, and you have time and money to spend on a play that does not belong on B'way.

Don't see it if you expect stunning sets and brilliant choreography since the theater is on B'way and not at your local high school.
