Hand to God
Midtown W
Great acting, Edgy, Intense, Thought-provoking

See it if you want a very dark comedy. Hand to God will make you laugh, but it also makes you think. Plus, the leading actor is absolutely phenomenal.

Don't see it if you dislike explicit content. There's a ten-minute puppet-sex scene!

Pippin
Midtown W
Absorbing, Exquisite, Great acting, Great staging, Colorful

See it if you love acrobatics, fantastic performers, and high-energy shows. Pippin is not only entertaining but it'll also make you think!

Don't see it if you dislike the circus. Or raw talent. (You should see it.)

Disappointing, Fluffy, Original, Ambitious

See it if you like emotional monologues and male-driven casts.

Don't see it if you want a realistic portrayal of the prison system. Definitely not the best of Miss Scott's work.

For a previous production
Jersey Boys (NYC)
Midtown W
Delightful, Great acting, Must see, Entertaining, Glitzy

See it if you want to see a fantastic story with absolutely wonderful, mostly upbeat, music. You will leave the theatre humming.

Don't see it if you dislike the music of Frankie Valli. You will hate this show. Also don't see it if you liked the Clint Eastwood movie. It's not that.

Cute, Clever, Entertaining, Dated

See it if you love upbeat, happy music! (Be warned, there are some sad songs, a la Carole King) The score includes hits ranging from the 50s onwards.

Don't see it if you dislike the music of Carole King, or early american hits like, "On Broadway." Sample the soundtrack to see if it's a good fit!

Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Overrated, Cute, Dated

See it if you want a solid musical. The song will always be fantastic, and the story line is cute and innovative.

Don't see it if you're expecting the 2003 production. Show quality has gone down significantly & the actors are sub-par. It's not worth the expensive ticket

62
Entertaining, Original, Clever

See it if you want something light and fun! The star-studded cast is fantastic.

Don't see it if you're looking for a thought-provoking show. It is very fluffy.

Enchanting, Great staging, Absorbing, Must see, Masterful

See it if you love classic Disney music mixed with a seamless production and a phenomenal cast. The show absolutely incredible. Definitely go see it.

Don't see it if you dislike loud music and large ensembles.

75
Clever, Entertaining, Dated

See it if you want a quirky farce. The show is cute, quick, and entertaining.

Don't see it if you are looking for talent. The leads have been mediocre since Bryce Pinkham and the original cast left the stage.

Absorbing, Exquisite, Great acting, Great staging, Resonant

See it if you want to see the book perfectly translated on stage. The actors are phenomenal, and the production is stunningly beautiful.

Don't see it if you have trouble with extreme flashing lights.

Something Rotten!
Midtown W
Exquisite, Hilarious, Original, Absorbing, Great acting

See it if you love musical theatre. The constant jokes and spoofs throughout the production are absolutely brilliant.

Don't see it if You don't enjoy big musical productions. It is definitely an overwhelming show for the more conservative theatre goer.

Chicago (NYC)
Midtown W
Delightful, Cute, Raunchy

See it if you love music. The minimalist production and the seamless choreography of the ensemble compliment the jazzy score.

Don't see it if you want a spectacle. The show is definitely getting a little tired and the leads have become less impressive over the years.

100
Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Exquisite, Riveting, Great writing, Epic

See it if you love word play, intellectual content, and fantastic performers. (Not to mention Lin Manuel Miranda)

Don't see it if you dislike rap/hip hop music. As is typical with Miranda's work, he does get quite experimental with musical genres throughout the score.

Hair
Midtown W
Great acting, Edgy, Hilarious, Intelligent, Must see

See it if you're a big fan of universal love. The show is stunning--it will make you laugh and it will make you sob.

Don't see it if you dislike the "hippie" movement of the 70s. Be warned, there is nudity!! (And the show can be very overtly sexual.)

76
Hamlet in Bed
West Village
Absorbing, Great acting, Intelligent, Original, Quirky

See it if you want to see some refreshing experimental theatre with a small cast and a phenomenal male lead. Plus, the production quality is amazing.

Don't see it if you want something light. The show is dark and often heavy. The female lead is a little weak and has been done before--I blame the script.

60
Dated, Cliched, Disappointing

See it if you want a classic musical. Phantom is the longest running show for a reason. Also see it if the movie just didn't cut it for you.

Don't see it if you want something fresh. The music is dated, the quality of the performers has gone downhill, and the show drags a lot.

39 Steps
Gramercy
Clever, Great acting, Quirky, Dated

See it if you want a classic farce!

Don't see it if you're looking for something modern. The content is old, and though the physical comedy is great, the show can be a little dull.

70
Blue Man Group
East Village
Funny, Quirky, Refreshing

See it if you want a goofy, colorful night! The Blue Man Group is an absolute gas.

Don't see it if you want a story line. The performance is almost purely physical comedy and there is no overarching plot line.

50
Mamma Mia!
Midtown W
Cute, Campy, Dated

See it if you want a goofy night on the town with your girlfriends. The music, by ABBA, does not disappoint.

Don't see it if you want something with depth. Mamma Mia is campy and shallow. Don't want to shell out $70? Watch the movie instead.

Resonant, Intense, Great acting, Intelligent, Masterful

See it if You want to see inspiring, phenomenal actors give incredible, heart-breaking performances. If nothing else, see it for Sydney Lucas.

Don't see it if you dislike dark humor or depressing content. Fun Home will make you cry.

80
Epic, Must see, Entertaining

See it if you want a traditional musical experience. With Les Miz what you see is what you get.

Don't see it if you dislike musicals that lack dialogue outside of song. Also, be warned, Les Miz is a very long show.

60
Edgy, Overrated, Raunchy

See it if you enjoy a bit of rock in your Broadway. Alternatively, see it for whichever Broadway vet is playing Hedwig--they don't disappoint.

Don't see it if you dislike loud, often discordant music. It is also not a show for the faint-hearted people out there--it can be very harsh and crass.

90
Avenue Q (NYC)
Midtown W
Entertaining, Hilarious, Raunchy

See it if you are in need of a laugh. The raunchy, muppet-like characters and their melodramas never fail to disappoint.

Don't see it if you dislike cheap, often dirty, jokes; or if you get offended easily by comments on race, sexuality, and the like.

Cymbeline
Upper W Side
Clever, Great acting, Fluffy

See it if you're a sucker for Shakespeare and you love watching extremely talented performers.

Don't see it if you're not strapped in for a long show. The play can feel a little slow at points--not to mention the run time is about three hours.

90
Clever, Funny, Fluffy, Overrated, Entertaining

See it if you are a fan of Trey Parker and Matt Stone (South Park, etc.)'s comedic genius. The comedy does deliver in the show.

Don't see it if you're looking for something original. I was disappointed by how heavily BoM relied on mocking other shows rather than creating new content.
