The Low Road
East Village
Ambitious, Epic, Relevant, Hilarious

See it if You like your comedy sharp, astute and witty. This is Bruce Norris to a T and new territory for Michael Greif. Refreshing and relevant.

Don't see it if You're expecting something typical and normal. This is strange and delightful.

Also The cast and writing are top-notch and this is some of the best theatr... Read more Read less

Don't see it if you don't have the patience or gall to face the truth of intolerance within and without

West Village
Great acting, Great staging, Epic, Riveting, Masterful

See it if You want delicious Shakespeare. Sublime interpretation and use of verse by actors leaves you breathless. Mesmerizing direction and staging.

Don't see it if You won't appreciate dexterous language and an immersive experience

The Fall (FringeNYC)
Soho/Tribeca
Slow, Banal, Disappointing, Great staging, Great singing

See it if You accept surface storytelling that comments on the worlds of these characters and their emotions rather than allow us to invest in them

Don't see it if You expect to be emotionally charged and immersed into specific themes of loss, grief and rejection

Absorbing, Masterful, Intelligent, Riveting

See it if Want to see actors of extremely high calibre perform a period piece, very very well (w/ the exception of Michael Benz, who is still v. good)

Don't see it if You don't like period pieces. Like plays that are short and sweet.

Ambitious, Clever, Absorbing, Epic, Dizzying

See it if Mentalist/Illusions are your thing. No one does it better.

Don't see it if You are a cynic. Theater is about suspension of disbelief. This is no different.

Fluffy, Indulgent, Cliched, Slow, Confusing

See it if A few decent moments between actors saves the show. Great music. (Only got to see Chokher Bali, can't speak for Devdas)

Don't see it if As a director you can't stand inexperienced almost overindulgent direction.

Also Potentially good actors speaks more about the missed opportunity to re... Read more Read less
