Roller Dynasty
Midtown W
Confusing, Needs work, Anticlimactic, Slow, Quirky

See it if you know Tony Jenkins. He’s the best thing about this production.

Don't see it if you know anyone else in the cast because it’ll be awkward later when they ask what you think.

Blue Man Group
East Village
Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Quirky

See it if You enjoy physical comedy expressed through music and quirky stagecraft, if English isn’t your first language, or you’re with kids

Don't see it if You’re looking for a plot or you find mute people painted blue kind of creepy.

70
Ambitious, Intelligent, Profound, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if You’re interested in the experiences of the deaf community or in how communication can be complicated when we use different methods to do it

Don't see it if You’re looking for a simple love story with a hero who swoops in to save a damsel in distress.

90
The Metromaniacs
Midtown W
Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Hilarious, Romantic

See it if You like silly romantic farces played by talented comedic actors who seem to relish the material they’ve been given.

Don't see it if You don’t enjoy your comedy in couplets

85
Entertaining, Clever staging, Interesting, Riveting, Seasonally appropriate

See it if You want to see an interesting re-interpretation of a classic Christmas tale you’ve seen many times before.

Don't see it if You are a humbug.

¡Figaro! (90210)
Midtown W
Great singing, Clever, Funny, Relevant

See it if You're a fan of the opera, enjoy a good farce, and are interested in current events. Knowledge of Figaro is a plus but not a requirement.

Don't see it if You don't like opera at all or are looking for anything resembling a traditional take on Figaro.

Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Great singing, Fluffy

See it if You're a fan of all things Broadway. This is an unabashed love letter to musical theatre. It helps but isn't necessary to be familiar w her

Don't see it if You're looking for a plot or narrative. This is more cabaret than a one man show style memoir

85
Slumber
Brooklyn
Entertaining, Funny, Edgy, Great dancing, Great acrobatics

See it if You enjoy dark humor (the kind found in Scream Queens or Heathers), horror films and circus acrobatics, and are looking for Halloween fun

Don't see it if You're squeamish about fake blood, offended by dark humor, or want a plot and not just a loose framework tying together dance and acrobatics

65
Great dancing, Cliched, Banal, Occasionally entertaining, Cynical

See it if you can't see the vastly more entertaining and fun Christmas show.

Don't see it if you are more interested in dancing and the Rockettes than a boring and tedious story.

85
Stomp
East Village
Clever, Delightful, Funny, Quirky, Must see

See it if You enjoy rhythm and dancing, creative ways to make music & are looking for a pretty universally enjoyable experience

Don't see it if You are looking for a more theatrical experience (this is much more of a dance/music performance) and are sensitive to loud noises

70
Entertaining, Fluffy, Jukebox musical, Fun

See it if You're a big fan of Gloria Estefan and/or Latin pop music and enjoy a show with a lot of dancing (both onstage and later in the audience)

Don't see it if You're not that interested in the music industry or in her life story (it is inspiring, but not terribly compelling as a dramatic narrative)

80
Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Romantic, Refreshing

See it if You're looking for light and fun entertainment that celebrates creativity and a sense of whimsy.

Don't see it if You're hoping to see Kelsey Grammer or Matthew Morrison (as they have left the production)

85
The Judas Kiss
Brooklyn
Clever, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent, Ambitious

See it if You are a fan of Oscar Wilde, Rupert Everett, British television (cast is full of familiar faces), and historical dramas.

Don't see it if You are uncomfortable with nudity, sexual situations, or gay themes

85
Great acting, Engaging, Great staging, Intelligent, Riveting

See it if You like interesting revivals with an excellent cast.

Don't see it if You want light-hearted entertainment.

Avenue Q (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Entertaining, Hilarious, Raunchy, Quirky

See it if You like Sesame Street but wished they worked blue.

Don't see it if You’re an actual kid and not just a kid at heart.

95
Absorbing, Entertaining, Enchanting, Great staging, Must see

See it if You’re a fan of the Harry Potter universe or want to come along for the amazing theatrical effects and performances - they’re truly magical!

Don't see it if You haven’t read the books or seen the movies yet - and most certainly not if you have and didn’t like them!

65
Thought-provoking, Over-wrought, Over-ambitious, Great staging, Amusing

See it if You’re a fan of Shakespeare and open to alternative theories about his identity.

Don't see it if You don’t like tiny productions, don’t care about Shakespeare, or don’t enjoy far-fetched conspiracy theories.

79
For a previous production
Entertaining, Funny, Relevant, Ambitious, Clever

See it if You miss SNL's political satire after their season ended & you'd rather laugh instead of cry about the Trump administration's many failings

Don't see it if You wear a MAGA hat and don't like a vaudevillian sense of fun about politics

During previews
Made in China
Midtown E
Funny, Confusing, Raunchy, Quirky, Relevant

See it if You enjoy experimental puppet theater with a political message, a dark (and occasionally crude) sense of humor, and are a fan of the surreal

Don't see it if You are offended by puppet sex or leaps of logic and are looking for a totally polished plot/production

80
The Encounter
Midtown W
Absorbing, Ambitious, Intelligent, Profound, Thought-provoking

See it if You're a fan of storytelling and enjoy radio programs like This American Life & Radiolab, or if you enjoy shows with live foley performances

Don't see it if You are looking for a large stage production, a traditional theater experience, or don't like having your beliefs challenged

80
During previews
Delightful, Entertaining, Great singing, Great dancing, Fluffy

See it if You like a good old-fashioned musical with plenty of familiar songs and lots of tap dancing. If you like the movie, you'll likely enjoy this

Don't see it if You are looking for anything modern or edgy...this is pure nostalgia

85
Original, Riveting, Ambitious, Edgy, Quirky

See it if You are interested in dance and acrobatic performances set in a club atmosphere

Don't see it if You have mobility issues (there is a lot of standing and moving around) or don't like loud music

80
Drunk Shakespeare
Midtown W
Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Hilarious, Intelligent

See it if You are a fan of Shakespeare (or at least familiar enough with his work to appreciate jokes about it), drinking and irreverence.

Don't see it if You don't know much about Shakespeare, are afraid of interacting with the actors or don't like being around drunk people.

90
Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Romantic, Great singing

See it if You want to see a well-staged and wonderfully performed classic musical that explores cultural differences in a clever & entertaining way

Don't see it if You're looking for something other than a very traditional musical

100
Must see, Original, Funny, Entertaining, Hilarious

See it if You enjoy satire delivered with dark humor and a little bit of vulgarity, and want to see something as earnest as it is irreverent

Don't see it if You are easily offended about anything at all

80
Blackbird
Midtown W
Great acting, Intelligent, Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Intense

See it if You are fascinated by the psychology and manipulations behind taboo and exploitative relationships.

Don't see it if You are easily triggered or are looking for "light" entertainment.
