Thought-provoking, Resonant, Relevant

See it if you'd like to consider the relationship between sports and politics, and between pre-Nazi Germany and today.

Don't see it if you are looking only for light entertainment without food for thought.

King Kong (NYC)

See it soon!, Creative, Absorbing

See it if you value innovative stage craft. Along with the King, creative use of technological artistry in set design reigns!

Don't see it if you seek a quiet, intense character drama.

Also See this before the King returns to Skull Island or moves on to Asia! ... Read more Read less

Versatile cast, Cultish, High energy

See it if you are the target audience in your teens or twenties and want to both laugh at and seriously consider the social challenges of high school.

Don't see it if you have seen other high school-themed musicals recently (The Prom, Dear Evan Hansen) because this may not offer enough original for you.

Also The cast demonstrated versatility managing with 4 understudies in lead... Read more Read less

Terrific, Clever set

See it if you are interested in a top all-around musical production which greatly broadens our appreciation of Carole King's contributions.

Don't see it if you want only to hear Tapestry-era songs.

Great singing, Clever staging, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you are looking for a delightfully pleasant evening with a mix of story and lovely singing. Relax and enjoy!

Don't see it if you are not in the mood for the adaptation of a story you likely know.

Disappointing

See it if you will enjoy being reminded of some of the contributions of Oscar Hammerstein.

Don't see it if you are looking for top-notch singing and acting.

Great singing, Lively, Fun, Relevant, Entertaining

See it if you are looking for a night out full of zany Broadway caricatures set amidst a sensitive portrayal of a worthwhile, albeit not new, topic

Don't see it if you want just seriousness.

Multimedia clever set design, High-energy, Evocative, Thundering

See it if you want to be immersed in Meatloaf music and energy, to see a stage interpretation of some of your favorite lyrics.

Don't see it if you seek perfect re-creation of studio recorded music. Lead singers are strong but chorus responses lack precision.

Oft-difficult to understand content, Relevant topic, Clever set

See it if you'd like insights into Rupert Murdoch's entry into the British newspaper industry in the late 1960s and his later US impact.

Don't see it if only subtly changing monochromatic grey/brown color palate will not sustain you and you seek character development across the cast.

Also Clever set and fast-paced musical-style first scene offer a great star... Read more Read less

Oversimplistic set, Uninspiring script, Quality acting, Slow

See it if you want to be exposed to highly regarded actors.

Don't see it if you yearn for new insights about Hillary and Bill Clinton. The script largely replays their public persona.

Thought-provoking, Edgy, Absorbing

See it if you want to explore the topic of bullying from the perspective of multiple stakeholders in an intimate setting.

Don't see it if you are looking for a light-hearted no-brainer.

Great acting, Potentially clever

See it if your enjoyment of high quality actors will carry the day.

Don't see it if you expect the clever premise to be adequately developed.

Intense, Relevant, Great acting, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you are interested in early baseball and civil rights, with a story led by a fast-talking, agile, engrossing actress.

Don't see it if you truly have no interest in either the world of sports or the contributions of women.

The Ferryman (NYC)
Midtown W
Thought-provoking, Entertaining, Ambitious, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you don't want to think about anything else but the stage action in front of you for several hours.

Don't see it if you have a short attention span.
