Hangmen (Broadway)
Midtown W
Not fully cooked yet, Great writing, Funny, Clever

See it if A McDonagh hit. Only it seems out of place on a Bdway stage. I saw it in previews so it might tighten up in time.

Confusing, Ambitious

See it if A one man show dealing with hurt, loss and guilt. Munoz should settle in deeper. In previews he is still searching for the fit.

Don't see it if If you need an advanced plotline or multiple characters. This one man show takes too long to get where it's going. 90mins needs a 15min trim

Slow, Dated, Overrated, Great acting

See it if I liked that the play was all about Hillary and little about Bill. Laurie Metcalf kept the play going.
