Interesting acting/odd production

See it if You really like Shakespeare and/or you want to see Glenda Jackson.

Don't see it if You can't manage Shakespeare or a very long show or unusual interpretation of a classic.

Natural Shocks
Upper W Side
Intense, Thought-provoking, Intelligent

See it if You like a one-woman show and you are prepared for an intense hour.

Don't see it if You are looking for simple entertainment--this is definitely not that. There is humor, but not an ounce of fluff.

78
Intelligent, Funny, Thought-provoking

See it if You are ready to laugh, but don't mind a funny show having an underlying message.

Don't see it if You are bothered by your theatre having an agenda. The play is really funny, but it definitely is trying to make a point.

70
A quirky science show!

See it if You love "The Way Things Work" or have curious kids. An enjoyable companion to That Physics Show.

Don't see it if You are looking for something mind-blowing, or if your kids have hit jaded teenager age--the target kid audience is probably about 4-12.

Also While I didn't love this one as much as That Physics Show (it moves sl... Read more Read less

Desperate Measures
Midtown W
Clever, Hilarious, Refreshing

See it if You need a break from the serious side of life, if you are amused by clever writing and enjoyable music

80
Original, absorbing, and fantastically acted

See it if You love intense performances and appreciate music in a play, and if you are open to original ways to tell a story.

Don't see it if You are looking for a contemporary story or if you are bothered by hearing opera or watching the depiction of mental illness.

90
Absorbing, Great acting, Intense

See it if You are up for a good drama and like following a mysteriously unfolding story.

Riveting, Profound, Must see

That Physics Show
Midtown W
Absorbing, Entertaining, Intelligent

See it if You are curious about how things work, you want to be educated and entertained, if you have kids with you--or even if you don't!

Don't see it if You are looking for traditional theater storytelling--this is an experience more than a story!

Indecent
Midtown W
Thought-provoking, Original, Ambitious

See it if You appreciate new approaches to theater and storytelling.

Don't see it if You are looking for a straightforward, linear story.

79
The Hairy Ape
Upper E Side
Thought-provoking, Intense, Resonant

See it if You are up for 90 minutes of intense drama. It is a strong show, but the combination of subject and presentation can be exhausting.

Don't see it if You are looking to be lightly entertained. There is pretty much nothing light about this show.

Also I am glad I saw the show--the approach is interesting, the venue is un... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Intelligent, A must-see for theatre fans!

See it if You love theatre--what a treasure trove of props and costumes and production notes! What you never knew about Broadway and West End theatre!

Don't see it if You aren't interested in theatre or really don't care about anything that goes on behind what you see.

Sunset Boulevard
Midtown W
Thought-provoking, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You like musicals that don't just entertain, but also make you think. You want to see phenomenal perfs (by Glenn Close--amazing--and others)

Don't see it if You want something bright and sunshine-y, or if you don't like musicals with wall to wall music.

86
In Transit
Midtown W
Clever, Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Quirky

See it if You like a Capella music, if you are open to new approaches to musicals, if you are from New York City-or even if you're not!

Don't see it if You are not open to new musical interpretations or you are put off by language that is true to what you might hear in the city.

The Humans

Thought-provoking

See it if You like family dynamics dramas and how they relate to your own life.

Matilda
Midtown W
Ambitious, Absorbing, Great staging, Great writing, Must see

For a previous production
Jersey Boys (NYC)
Midtown W
Entertaining, Absorbing, Original, Refreshing, Great singing

See it if You like Four Seasons or similar music and you like to see "the story behind the story."

Don't see it if You only like more traditional musicals or if you are looking for something big and dance-y.

88
Entertaining, Clever, Refreshing, Funny, Original

See it if You like Shakespeare enough to see a light version of it, and if you like to be more involved than just sitting in a theatre.

Don't see it if You don't like the outdoors and you are very happy to be sitting in a comfy theater seat.

100
Joyful, funny, and full of heart!

See it if You appreciate a big musical, you like new musical material and great dancing. It's a mix of old storytelling and new.

Don't see it if You only like traditional musicals. There is traditional in here, but the vibe is young and bright and a little loud.

88
The Ferryman (NYC)
Midtown W
Ambitious, Absorbing, Thought-provoking

See it if You are up for a long, complex, serious, intense show. There are moments of the humor of a big family, but this is in no way a light show.

Don't see it if You are looking for bright, colorful entertainment, and if you just want to be entertained. This one will make you think.

69
Popcorn Falls
Midtown W
Confusing, Clever

See it if You enjoy small shows, and farces.

Don't see it if You are looking for something big, or something laugh a minute. It is clever, and amusing, but not nearly as funny as I had hoped.

69
A great idea, wish it worked better

See it if You like hearing old music--the trip through decades of music is fun. And if you enjoy a women-centered show and great voices.

Don't see it if You are expecting a coherent story to go along with the music. This is a revue of sorts--kind of more a concert than a show.

100
Beautiful, heartfelt, funny

See it if You appreciate a classic style big musical, and, of course, if you love Bernadette Peters. All the big musical features, and a huge heart!

Don't see it if You are looking for something deep and serious

91
Familiar, beloved music and the stories behind it

95
Oslo (Broadway)
Upper W Side
Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Riveting

See it if You are interested in historical material, willing to concentrate on a sometimes complicated story.

Don't see it if You are looking for light entertainment. Oslo is riveting, but requires focus, as a lot happens in a short time.

98
During previews
Absorbing, Great acting, Must see

See it if You like plays with good story, great characters/acting, intelligent dialogue. If you like coming away really affected by what you've seen.

Don't see it if You are looking for just a fluff play. There is comedy, but the play has so many layers, you really have to want to appreciate all of that.

Also I saw the original production years ago and loved it--this production ... Read more Read less

For a previous production
Hilarious, Laughed so hard, my insides hurt!

Sweat
Midtown W
Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Intelligent

See it if You appreciate a strong, emotional story with great performances and a real-world message.

Don't see it if You are bothered by profanity or gritty situations. This is not a light, feel-good play- if you want just entertainment, see something else.

76
Great staging, Clever, Intense

See it if You have an open mind and a lot of stamina. It is quite an extravaganza of staging and effects--really offbeat elements and constant motion.

Don't see it if You are uncomfortable with immersive theater, loud music, strobe effects, or if you only want to see traditional staging/storytelling.

97
Absorbing, Great staging, Thought-provoking, Entertaining

See it if You like a musical with a good, meaningful story, great music, and terrific dancing.

Don't see it if You don't like musicals, you're looking for experimental rather than classic.

73
The Fantasticks
Midtown W
Quirky, Refreshing, Entertaining, Fluffy, Thought-provoking

See it if You want to see a long running classic in a refreshingly small space.

Don't see it if You are expecting a big, modern musical. It is sweet, but it is not big by any means!

91
Avenue Q (NYC)
Midtown W
Original, Great writing, Great staging, Funny, Clever

See it if You have a sense of humor and an open mind about the theater you see.

Don't see it if You are offended by occasional off-color language and tone in a musical--or bothered by puppets!

100
Clever, Ambitious, Great staging, Great writing, Hilarious

See it if You like musicals, especially if you have seen a lot of them to understand the many references to other shows, and if you like to laugh!

Don't see it if You don't appreciate broad humor or really don't like musicals.
