See it if You're a fan of The Vagina Monologues

Don't see it if You're squeamish or prudish about diseased intimate body parts and violence

Also This is a remarkable, difficult personal journey that simultaneously e... Read more Read less

Chicago (NYC)
Midtown W
Disappointing, Overrated

See it if You have nothing else to do.

Don't see it if You loved the film; this is static in comparison.

Confusing, Disappointing, Great staging

See it if You love the music; you're looking for a classic spectacle.

Don't see it if Andrew Lloyd Webber is not your cuppa tea; you don't care for musicals.

Enchanting, Entertaining, Innovative

See it if You have a kid to take along with you. And if you're Disney-inclined.

Don't see it if You cannot tolerate puppets.

Also The opening scene is worth the price of admission. I don't remember th... Read more Read less

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Great staging, Thought-provoking

See it if you like musicals with a message, delivered in a well-packaged bottle.

Don't see it if You don't like big-spectacle musicals. You might not see the forest for the trees.

Also Under the glitzy surface is a warm, true core.

Delightful, Entertaining, Great staging, Classic

See it if You want to see a good production of this classic. See Donna Murphy--she's great!

Don't see it if You don't like musicals.

Midtown W
Delightful, Entertaining, Inventive

See it if You love cats the animals, have a kid to take along with you, are a T.S. Eliot scholar, would like to hear a great Andrew Lloyd Weber score.

Don't see it if You're looking for a story with a beginning, middle, end; if you don't like humans masquerading as cats; you want spoken dialogue.

Upper W Side
Slow, Confusing, Excruciating

See it if You're tired and need a nice nap in the dark.

Don't see it if You're expecting to be entertained by learning about the vagaries of the junk bond market. This piece is not entertaining nor edifying.

Also Enron was a gazillion times better.

Aladdin (Broadway)
Midtown W
Disappointing, Insipid, Slow

See it if You can take a kid with you; and if you're Disney-inclined.

Don't see it if You have sophisticated taste.

Disappointing, Delightful, Feel-good; somewhat corny

See it if You want to learn about something positive that came out of 9/11.

Don't see it if I wouldn't tell anyone not to see it; seeing it is sort of the right thing to do. But if you can't stand corny, you might want to pass.

Delightful, Relevant, Resonant, Entertaining

See it if You loved the movie--this captures its spirit perfectly. It's more subversive than Matilda.

Don't see it if Kids on stage are not your thing and if you don't want to hear loud rock and roll music.

Banal, Disappointing, Overrated, Excruciating, Annoying

See it if You like presentational, ham-sandwich acting; or if you don't have much theater-going experience to compare it with.

Don't see it if you don't like loud, monotonous tone of voice from the ensemble actors

Also The main character is wonderful and well rounded. The rest of the char... Read more Read less

The Wolves
Upper W Side
Absorbing, Great staging, Great writing, Intelligent

See it if You like high school team sports; girls' issues; movement; topical discussion

Don't see it if You have no patience for adolescent concerns; you're looking for traditional proscenium theater.
