BLKS
Midtown W
Relevant, Fluffy, Edgy, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if Really nice acting work from the majority of the cast. It felt accurate to real life situations and there were some very funny moments.

Don't see it if Sometimes the writing seemed like a situational half-hour comedy on a network television station, a little too on the nose and predictable.

We Are The Tigers
East Village
Entertaining, Great singing, Fluffy, Quirky, Clever

See it if I was pleasantly surprised by this - great performers with some really witty material. Each had their time to shine which was nice to see.

Don't see it if Definitely needs some tightening and smoothing out (esp. in the 1st act) but once the kinks are figured out this will be in a great place!

Noura
Midtown W
Confusing, Disappointing, Good acting, Intelligent, Slow

See it if You have an interest in the politics and culture of Iraq and its people. Nice believable performances and relationships among the characters

Don't see it if It was a very long 90 minutes for me - I wanted the meat of the story faster and the reprecussions to be shown on stage, rather than told.

Daniel's Husband
Midtown W
Absorbing, Great acting, Intense, Resonant, Relevant

See it if Really lovely, convincing acting all around. Each member of the cast is great at absorbing their character's worlds and those around them.

Don't see it if The beginning was a little slow for me, but it picked up a half hour or so in.

Ambitious, Confusing, Intense, Intelligent, Slow

See it if Nice performances, interesting overall aesthetic. Raul is great as always.

Don't see it if I felt like I was being talked at, rather than acted to. It is a very wordy play that wasn't always clear with its intentions.

Absorbing, Clever, Entertaining, Refreshing, Relevant

See it if Clever and informative night at the theater. Schreck simultaneously breaks your heart and gives you a history lesson in 90 minutes.

Don't see it if It is not a traditional format for a play - it has many different elements that could throw a traditional theatergoer off.

Desperate Measures
Midtown W
Entertaining, Funny, Quirky, Raunchy, Fluffy

See it if Enjoyable overall! A fun night of theater. Knockout comedic performance by Lauren Molina.

Don't see it if you prefer a heavier style. It's a little too long, could be condensed a bit.

Rocktopia
Midtown W
Slow, Banal, Dull, One good singer, Blah

See it if you like the song "I Want to Know What Love Is", because it is the only good rendition in the entire piece.

Don't see it if For about 85% of the "concert", it seemed as if nobody in the audience actually wanted to be there. There was nothing inspired about it.

Also You couldn't see or hear the chorus at all because of the lighting and... Read more Read less

Slow, Relevant, Funny, Quirky, Thought-provoking

See it if Great peformances by Jamie Brewer and Vanessa Aspillaga. Had some nice moments, both dramatic and comedic.

Don't see it if The show really lacked any “umph” to me. I loved the playwrights last work at RTC, but this one was just kind of flat.

Ambitious, Great acting, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if you can enjoy the mind games of piecing together multiple characters from multi-generations of history. Excellent acting all around.

Don't see it if you tend to be interested in lighter theater with a positive message. This play is all about lies and what is fiction vs. what isn't.

Also I admired in the writing that you did not necessarily have to know the... Read more Read less

Hundred Days
East Village
Great singing, Delightful, Edgy, Quirky

See it if you like non-traditional musical theater methods. Strong vocals and an absorbing and thought-provoking use of lighting and the minimal set.

Don't see it if you need a linear, clear cut story with a beginning, middle and end with earnest character development within each person on stage.

Also I love the types of musicals NYTW brings to its MainStage - Once, Hade... Read more Read less

The Encounter
Midtown W
Ambitious, Confusing, Original, Intelligent, Intense

See it if you have a love of live sound design and enjoy seeing one man shows. McBurney has amazing energy.

Don't see it if you like a feast for the eyes when you see a Broadway show. It gets very confusing and hard to follow about an hour in.

76
Absorbing, Funny, Quirky, Hilarious, Edgy

See it if you love satirical material and a great cast...you know you aren't going in for an thought-provoking night of the theater, it is what it is.

Don't see it if you dislike 70s music and can't stand un-intelligent and unoriginal material.

Absorbing, Great acting, Masterful, Thought-provoking, Intense

See it if you want to see a master at his craft. Langella is unbelievable playing a man who is slowly but surely loosing his mind piece by piece.

Don't see it if you do not appreciate theater that really pushes you mentally to a place that may make you upset but also make you think about the future.

Eclipsed
Midtown W
Absorbing, Delightful, Epic, Intense, Resonant

See it if you are interested in historical stories that combine drama and humor so freaking well. Loved it.

Don't see it if you aren't interested in the past and future of mankind.

The Royale
Upper W Side
Clever, Great staging, Original, Intelligent, Thought-provoking

See it if you love sports-influenced theater and really convincing, strong acting choices by those cast.

Don't see it if boxing or a play about the sport bores you!

84
Entertaining, Absorbing, Refreshing, Relevant, Great staging

See it if you love Gloria Estefan's music and have an interest in Cuban stories. A surprisingly very relevant play to what is happening right now.

Don't see it if Latin music is not your thing or you do not care for jukebox musicals.

Southern Comfort
East Village
Clever, Refreshing, Relevant, Resonant, Original

See it if you enjoy bluegrass music tied with great musical theater style singing. Also if trans topics interest you. Fascinating show.

Don't see it if you aren't into trans-centered stories or hate any type of country music.

Great acting, Great staging, Intense, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if you are a lover of classic American theater. Brilliant inventive way of making us feel included in on the action not just on the sidelines.

Don't see it if simplicity doesn't do it enough for you.

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Delightful, Profound, Quirky, Dizzying

See it if you love the Wizard of Oz and the spectacle of Broadway.

Don't see it if too much green and glitter intimidate you.

Ambitious, Enchanting, Delightful, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if you love a great night out at the theater. The production value of shows at the Beaumont are just outstanding.

Ambitious, Great writing, Great acting, Great staging

See it if you love musical theater. It's an incredibly exciting night out at the theater, even years after it's opening.

Don't see it if crude or risque humor bothers you.

Something Rotten!

Funny, Quirky, Great writing, Hilarious

See it if you love all things musical comedy. It's original, fresh, and keeps you laughing the entire time.

Fine, Thought-provoking, Slow, Relevant, Dizzying

See it if The actors were definitely very committed to the piece, appreciated that. The last scene was great.

Don't see it if The tropes and word-play did start to bother me after awhile, but I get that is what the play is all about. Got dull at times for me.

The Dance of Death
East Village
Slow, Great acting, Disappointing, Dated, Cliched

See it if Great performances by Cassie Beck and Richard Topol. Costumes were a highlight as well surprisingly.

Don't see it if Appreciate CSC for doing this piece, but nothing about it was particularly exciting.

Oy, Slow, Mediocre singing, Fluffy, Poorly executed

See it if This had good intentions, but was so hastily put together. The vocal talent of the backup singers (esp. the ladies) shined over R & C 10x.

Don't see it if Unnecessarily long, cliched, corny, & hokey. It seemed like it would never end. Ruben and Clay did not look genuinely happy to be there.

Slave Play
East Village
Ambitious, Great acting, Relevant, Resonant, Thought-provoking

See it if It really does a great job of putting race & multicultural relationships, both physical and mental, on trial without being too preachy.

Don't see it if It is a very physical and palpable piece - I could see it making a certain type of person uncomfortable.

Ordinary Days
Midtown W
Nice singing, Dull, Cliched, Meh, Banal

See it if Nice performances all around and the songs are pleasant. Kyle Sherman definitely the stand-out.

Don't see it if This would be much better in a song-cycle concert format rather than a piece of theater. It left me feeling indifferent.

Carmen Jones
East Village
Ambitious, Great singing, Great staging, Resonant, Refreshing

See it if Great ensemble piece, tight harmonies and dynamic staging. Anika is worth the price of admission alone.

Don't see it if An enjoyable, original night of theater! Perfect blend of operetta and classic MT show.

This Flat Earth
Midtown W
Relevant, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Intense, Cliched

See it if Some really nice performances overall, very nuanced work in characterization. My heart broke for Cassie Beck's portrayal of a lost soul.

Don't see it if Heavy handed at times with some unrealistic writing. A little cliched as well, but it wasn't the eye-roll worthy squirm in seat type.

Afterglow
Midtown W
Good acting, Dynamic staging, Good use of space, Relevant, Raunchy

See it if I appreciated how seriously the topic was explored - nothing was too over the top, it was to the point and hit on some interesting points.

Don't see it if The ending was a bit cliche and predictable to me.

Fire and Air
East Village
Disappointing, Slow, Indulgent, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if you have an interest in being a detective, because that is the only way you'll find the plot of this play. Some wonderful acting though.

Don't see it if you are looking for a fully realized world. The script needs development as do the financial resources to make this a more bearable piece.

Who's Holiday!
Midtown W
Funny, Fluffy, Raunchy, Slow, Edgy

See it if you're looking for a fun holiday laugh. Lesli is great, and certainly commands the room. Her spirit is infectious.

Don't see it if rhymes and couplets frustrate you, sexuality makes you uncomfortable, or you don't have any holiday spirit!

Jerry's Girls
Midtown E
Disappointing, Dull, Under rehearsed, Slow, Cheesy

See it if you're a Stephanie Umoh fan- her ballads are wonderful and she is by far the stand out. Great work by the pianist as well.

Don't see it if you aren't a fan of Jerry's musicals. I spent most of the time cringing, it felt very amateur overall.

Fully Committed
Midtown W
Ambitious, Quirky, Funny, Entertaining, Cliched

See it if you love Jesse. Cliche as it is, he is fully committed to these roles and does a great job of convincing us that he is each character.

Don't see it if you have ever worked in a assistant capacity and have post tramatic stress based on appeasing so many people all at the same time!

95
The Humans
Midtown W
Absorbing, Great acting, Relevant, Resonant, Riveting

See it if you are enthralled by family dramas and complicated relationships. Superb acting all around, especially by Jayne Houdyshell.

Don't see it if you aren't into seeing a play about complicated family dynamics and how love perceivers even in through the worst of it all.

81
The Effect
West Village
Great acting, Thought-provoking, Resonant, Ambitious, Clever

See it if you are into psychological-related thrillers- it was a very interesting play with alot of great moments and really kept you thinking.

Don't see it if medical dramas intimidate you or make you sad.

Dry Powder
East Village
Absorbing, Entertaining, Resonant, Intelligent, Thought-provoking

See it if you can understand basic financial principles and how they apply to the world at hand. Really enjoyed this one.

Don't see it if finance bores you, or if you don't like theater in the round.

Noises Off
Midtown W
Funny, Great staging, Great acting, Hilarious, Quirky

See it if you love farces and that type of humor, and if you're good at multitask-watching because alot happens in this show! So much fun.

Don't see it if you aren't a vigilant theatergoer, alot of great moments can get lost if you aren't paying attention.

Don't see it if you don't like predictable stories or country music.

Entertaining, Refreshing, Funny, Absorbing, Ambitious

See it if you loved the movie and want to a great, light night at the theater. It was so entertaining.

Don't see it if seeing kids more talented that you makes you feel bad!

Hughie
Midtown W
Disappointing, Slow, Dated, Cliched, Banal

See it if you're a Forest Whitaker fan and would enjoy him talking for an hour even if he stumbles a great deal and the product is dull.

Don't see it if you don't think it's entertaining that every time he goes back to the water cooler on the set that the SM feeds him his lines.

Waitress (NYC)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Clever, Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining

See it if you love Sara B's music or are curious to hear how she would put a MT style on her work. The songs are just so good and fit well.

Don't see it if you aren't a Sara B fan or disliked the movie.

Dated, Entertaining, Delightful, Enchanting, Great staging

See it if you love tap dance, old-school music, and great storytelling by Maurice Hines.

Don't see it if if the "old school" nature of shows and performing is not your thing. Or if you hate tap dance.

82
Original, Entertaining, Slow, Romantic, Ambitious

See it if you love Peter Pan and are into British-written music.

Don't see it if you are not into cliche songs, music, dance, and acting.

Ambitious, Clever, Delightful, Great acting

See it if you love risque, bold, thought-provoking theater that has an amazing musical element combined as well.
