Clever, Entertaining, Great singing, Great acting

See it if You want to see a masterclass in acting by Kate Baldwin! She is amazing in this. Music is fine, story is charming but Kate is the story here

Don't see it if You like big showy flashy musicals. It’s very similar to the dear Evan Hansen feel with some sci-fi elements.

Delightful, Entertaining, Great acting, Great singing, Relevant

See it if Great play that should be seen by all. Such a great little play with music that packs a hard bunch!

Don't see it if If you are offended by references of god or sexuality. Or if you are offended by a play with no women.

Clever, Entertaining, Relevant, Resonant, Slow

See it if You enjoy Bryan Cranston and the other actors! They really tried and at many times succeeded but it’s not as good as you want it to be.

Don't see it if you don’t like plays or Bryan Cranston. It’s a decent transition to a play but was better as a movie.

See it if You're a fan of the mean girls movie, are a woman, have a teenage daughter, want to laugh, and love female leads

Don't see it if You have no heart. Think millennials are Unbearable. Hate happiness, loathe joy, never smile.

Days of Rage
Midtown W
Entertaining, Disappointing, Relevant, Resonant

See it if You are a fan of the Vietnam war. The writing is fine, it moves rather well, I just don't know that I cared enough about the characters.

Don't see it if You want to be moved by a piece of theater. Thought provoking at times but nothing we aren't hearing every day.

See it if You are a fan of spongebob or have kids that are a fan of the show! Or if you just enjoy pop musicals. Sets and singing are great.

Don't see it if You know nothing about spongebob, and are looking for a real connection with real characters.

Disappointing, Indulgent, Great writing, Slow

See it if You simply can’t resist Shakespeare or want to be within 15 feet of Ellen burstyn

Don't see it if You don’t like Shakespeare. You can’t sit for 2 hours straight.

Indecent
Midtown W
Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging, Intelligent, Masterful

See it if You appreciate plays about historical events, and the power of artistic freedom in times of uncertainty.

Don't see it if You don't appreciate Jewish history, and don't see many plays.

The Hairy Ape
Upper E Side
Ambitious, Entertaining, Great acting, Edgy, Great staging

See it if You are a fan of O'Neil and this play. The acting is incredible, and the space is used very well! Every seat in the house is great!

Don't see it if You don't enjoy straight theatre, don't have an ear for accents, or don't enjoy O'Neil.

See it if You enjoyed a Doll's House, and are were always wondering "I wonder what happened to Nora" Great acting and a really great script!

Don't see it if You don't enjoy straight plays, or Laurie Metcalf. You don't need to know A Doll's House to understand and enjoy this play!

Oslo (Broadway)
Upper W Side
Entertaining, Great acting, Absorbing, Intense, Great writing

See it if You enjoy political dramas. Really great staging, really great performances, and a moment of history that isn't told!

Don't see it if You can not sit through a 3 hour play, or do not enjoy historical dramas. Or if you have a hard time following multiple characters.

Entertaining, Funny, Great acting

See it if You enjoy Marissa Romeo or have ever had questions about throuples! Very interesting look at the concept. Lena Hall sings in this!!

Don't see it if You are uncomfortable with sexual themes.

Funny, Delightful, Entertaining, Hilarious, Masterful

See it if You enjoy British slapstick comedy! It is a laugh a minute, with some inventive writing and some great performers!

Don't see it if You don't want to laugh, have no heart, and don't understand British accents. A lot of fun in the theatre!

War Paint
Midtown W
Banal, Great singing, Slow

See it if You love patti or Christine! Both give a masterful performance in this show!

Don't see it if You want to be highly entertained for 2.5 hours. The songs don't really go anywhere and is not cause for theatre. I kept myself nodding off.

76
The Object Lesson
East Village
Clever, Enchanting, Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Masterful

See it if You enjoy magic and immersive theatre! It's a great show with a great leading man bringing a very wonderful project to NYTW!

Don't see it if You mind sitting on a box, and have to move about a space. Your focus constantly changes, but you really see a man and his link to objects!

The Babylon Line
Upper W Side
Banal, Overrated, Slow, Disappointing

See it if I thought the performances were pretty good but the play seemed a bit lazy. I'm a fan of the author but this is not his best work.

Don't see it if It's a rather boring plot. People taking a creative writing class. Some laughs but not enough to carry you through 2 and a half hours.

87
Edgy, Entertaining, Great staging, Great singing, Funny

See it if You love seeing new innovative ways to see theatre. The leads, including Josh Groban are superb! Many music styles from opera to house!

Don't see it if You have no imagination, hated War and Peace or are epileptic (strobe lights used). Get there a little early to read the notes in the bill!

Heisenberg
Midtown W
Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Relevant, Resonant

See it if You love Mary Louise Parker of course! She is truly a remarkable actress and completely transforms in this play about two lonely people!

Don't see it if You want a play with big sets and costumes. Simple two person play that seems banal but packs a nice punch. On stage seating faces audience.

The Front Page
Midtown W
Delightful, Clever, Funny, Indulgent

See it if You want to see a bunch of "names" on one stage. It's 3 acts with two intermissions but doesn't really take off till act 2.

Don't see it if You don't have the money to spend on a ticket. It's an expensive show and almost worth the price.

Great singing, Resonant, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy the music of Jonathan Larson and want a personable glimpse into his life. A fine version of this musical.

Don't see it if You hated Rent, don't enjoy 90s rock and roll, and want a big showy musical. It's a small cast and tells the story of a "creative" type.

74
The Encounter
Midtown W
Clever, Entertaining, Intense, Masterful, Slow

See it if You want to see a new innovative form of theatre. Immersive in a different way than expected! Great storytelling

Don't see it if You are looking for that stereotypical broadway glamour and finesse. There won't be a falling chandelier or a big group dance number!

The Humans
Midtown W
Absorbing, Great writing, Intense, Must see

See it if You want to witness a brilliantly written play. You're forced to connect with every character on that stage in a deep and profound way.

Don't see it if You don't enjoy slice of life plays. This show truly is a gem, I laughed, cried, and was moved for some time after! Great play!

Waitress (NYC)
Midtown W
Delightful, Great acting, Romantic, Entertaining, Funny

See it if You love Sara Bareilles, and a modern unconventional love story. The music and performances are nuanced, funny, and oh so charming!

Don't see it if You don't like folky music, don't like to laugh, and don't want to have all the feels! Also skip it if you enjoy showy spectacles.

Shuffle Along
Midtown W
Entertaining, Clever, Amazing choreography, Great acting

See it if You enjoy watching musicals that also give you some history of Jazz and broadway! The leads are wonderful and the Tap numbers steal the show

Don't see it if You can not sit for 3 hours. The first act is really wonderful, the second act doesn't quite live up to the first, but it's worth a view.

85
Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Quirky, Romantic

See it if You enjoy seeing actors having a great time, singing a wonderful score! The leads are wonderful. The original You've Got Mail!

Don't see it if You don't enjoy musicals written before the 1960s. It's a rather legit sounding score.

84
We Are The Tigers
East Village
Great singing, Funny, Intense, Great writing

See it if You enjoy campy horror and girls belting in your face. The writing is really funny and performances are great

Don't see it if You’re easily offended or squeamish with blood. It won’t change your life but it’s a really fun night of theater.

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Funny

See it if You enjoy merrily. I think they solved the problem of this show. Everyone was great and it was a great night of theater.

Don't see it if You don’t enjoy musicals or expect to see the showy overproduced version you’re used to.

See it if You want to see real magic on stage and be transported to the magical Potter world!

Don't see it if There’s no reason not to see this play. It’s better than it should be wether you’re a potter fan or not!

Disappointing, Cliched, Fluffy, Boring

See it if You are a huge Cher fan and know her story. The leads are really great, but the show itself is clunky and more about the costumes.

Don't see it if You aren't a fan of Cher or enjoy musicals that have a clear And interesting plot line.

Pacific Overtures
East Village
Slow, Entertaining, Clever, Banal

See it if You are a true sondheim fan. Enjoy new takes on theatre, and enjoy japanese culture. Some stand out numbers!

Don't see it if You don't enjoy sondheim, or want a showy, full featured musical. This is basic staging to tell the story. Missed some moments.

See it if BETTE MIDLER! The whole cast is stellar, including David Hyde Pierce, but bette who is 71 really steals the show! It's a must see

Don't see it if You don't enjoy a classic song and dance musical. It is traditional theatre at its finest with some wonderful performances. Expensive!

Sweat
Midtown W
Great acting, Great writing, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if You enjoy plays that touch on family, life, and the working class! The struggle is real in their play and it's shown with gusto.

Don't see it if You can't relate to a working middle class. Or are epileptic because there are a lot of flashing lights between scenes.

Disappointing, Overrated, Clever, Funny

See it if You enjoy the movie and want to laugh at some stage craft and crude humor. Also if you don't see much theatre and want to laugh.

Don't see it if You're looking for a well crafted musical. The music is more southern than north east. Only one character has an arch. Too long

Absorbing, Ambitious, Exquisite, Great acting, Edgy

See it if Wanting to be mesmerized by Shakespeare! This company presents Othello in a way I never thought possible. All star cast; knockout performanc

Don't see it if You have no patience for Shakespeare, Even those who are unfamiliar with the language will understand because of the direction and clarity.

The Portal
West Village
Confusing, Great singing, Slow

See it if You enjoy Billy Lewis! He sounds great in this show! Some nice dancers and a really talented guitarist and drummer.

Don't see it if Visuals were used throughout and they were a bit strange. It was like a trip through a late eighties low budget sci-fi flick.

Falsettos
Midtown W
Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Quirky

See it if You love the show, William Ginn's work, or any of the brilliant actors on the stage. Stephanie taught a masterclass in heartfelt comedy!

Don't see it if You like glitz and glamour in a musical. The set transforms before your eyes but it's not revolutionizing broadway! A bit of a tear jerker!

See it if You want to see the effects of 9/11 from a different perspective. Raw human, often humorous, slice of life musical about 5 days post 9/11

Don't see it if You have a hard time dealing with the events of 9/11. Don't want to be moved. Have no heart. It's not a big set, big costume, type of show!

79
Delightful, Funny, Great singing, Romantic, Masterful choreography

The Crucible
Midtown W
Great acting, Intense, Intelligent, Resonant

See it if You enjoy the crucible of course, but also if you enjoy shows that make you question the state of our nation. The play is very resonant!

Don't see it if You are a modern day witch, or your name was written in sat and black book. It will just be too real for you. ;)

78
Funny, Edgy, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if You love Mr Pasquale, and enjoy farce type musicals. The musical style is very bluegrass/country, so if you enjoy those styles you'll enjoy

Don't see it if You don't enjoy silly musicals. If you are looking for something to provoke thought then look elsewhere. This is just a good time.

96
For a previous production
Absorbing, Great acting, Refreshing, Resonant, Inspiring

See it if You want to be moved by a new musical, or if you have teenagers in your life that may be having a hard time in high school!

Don't see it if You don't want to cry in the theatre. Because I assure you, the tears will flow. If they don't, you may need to find a soul.

Bright Star
Midtown W
Clever, Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging, Must see

See it if You enjoy modern musicals. The acting is superb! Steve and Edie have really created a wonderful piece of art.

Don't see it if You are one that constantly judges theatre. It's not perfect, but the music is fresh, and the staging is simple and eloquent.
