God Said This
West Village
Absorbing, Masterful, Must see, Profound, Relevant

See it if Ms. Nanako-Winkler's writing is funny, absorbing, and heartbreaking. With the SUPERIOR performances, I felt like I was seeing old friends.

Absorbing, Entertaining, Masterful, Resonant

See it if Your a fan of discussion puff family, place/time, and even the butterfly effect.

Don't see it if You detest melodrama. The majority of the play utilizes a stereotypical English pastiche (though there's a good reason).

93
Shadowlands
Midtown W
Masterful, Profound, Exquisite

See it if You want to see a play that explores the concepts of love , death, and suffering with a delicate touch. Also, it's about CS Lewis.

Don't see it if While Shadowlands isn't depressing, it's not exactly a feel-good tap musical.

85
Mud
East Village

1984 (Broadway)
Midtown W
Masterful, Relevant, Absorbing, Profound, Intense

See it if You want to see something fresh, sparse, and new. A classic book and a wonderful play.

Don't see it if I was in the second row, so maybe I was really close to the action, but it is perhaps the most violent thing I've ever seen on stage.

95
Absorbing, Clever, Hilarious, Must see

See it if You want to see a refreshing production of a Shakespeare play, done in accessible manner, by a company with an admirable raison d'etre.

Don't see it if You have a cold, dead heart. I'm grateful I got the chance to see Twelfth Night! Really, maybe if you truly don't want to see a comedy.

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Hilarious

See it if You love out-there, esoteric humor. If you love improv and stand-up. If you really like John Mulaney and Nick Kroll, which I do.

Matilda
Midtown W
Clever, Delightful, Original, Enchanting

See it if You want to see a really masterful, enjoyable show. I had been putting seeing Matilda off for quite some time, but now I'm happy I saw it.

Don't see it if There's children in Matilda, and while that can be a little precious for my taste, that isn't the case here. It's just not for small kids.

See it if You want to see an intrinsically American piece; at times sad and at times hilarious. See it if you want to see the work of two masters.

East Village
Absorbing, Great staging, Resonant, Must see, Ambitious

Peer Gynt
East Village
Great acting, Confusing, Intelligent, Absorbing

See it if You're an Ibsen fanatic and don't want to miss a well acted NYC production of a less common play.

Boy
Midtown W
Great acting, Profound, Original, Relevant, Intelligent
