Profound, Masterful, Great acting

See it if you enjoy heart stopping performances, especially by Jessica Lange and Gabriel Byrne.

Don't see it if you can't sit for 3 and a half hours. The show moves fast but it is a long show with heavy material. The last scene is worth it all though.

Himself and Nora
West Village
Disappointing, Confusing, Raunchy

See it if you enjoy sexual humor that does not make any sense.

Bright Star
Midtown W
Enchanting, Disappointing, Great acting, Slow, Cliched

See it if The acting is great, at times, and Carmen Cusack is riveting. If you enjoy the atmosphere of "Once" with bluegrass melodies, you'll like it.

Don't see it if You don't like predictable endings. The lyrics could use some work as some eloquence is lost.
