Loud, Entertaining, Quirky, Dizzying, Confusing

See it if You are in the mood for a rock opera, heavy metal, nostalgia, and Meatloaf (the singer, not dinner). If you want a loud, fun theatre night.

Don't see it if You want a meaningful, thoughtful, calm night at the theatre. This is not your father's musical ... Also, the words are often unclean....

The Rolling Stone
Upper W Side
Thought-provoking, Relevant, Intelligent, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you like shows that make you think. See it if LGBTQ dramas are of interest. See it is family dynamics in trying times capture your thoughts.

Don't see it if You are looking for a light and fluffy play. Don't see it if problems of LGBTQ people are of no interest to you.

Great dancing, Great singing, Great staging, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You like big old time musicals. See it if you are looking for an enjoyable story with laughs, characters, and heart.

Don't see it if You are looking for a new twist on a familiar story. Don't see it is you want a serious story with a profound message.

High energy, Quirky, Great staging, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You are looking for a loud, funny, enjoyable evening and if suggestive humor is your thing. Definitely see it if you are a Beetlejuice fan.

Don't see it if You are looking for a "child friendly" show. Also, skip it if you find nothing funny about death and dying.

Nantucket Sleigh Ride
Upper W Side
Resonant, Great staging, Intelligent, Great acting, Thought-provoking

See it if You like well acted talky shows that leave you thinking after the curtain falls. Is a memory truth or imagination? What makes a life??

Don't see it if You are looking for all the answers. Don't see it if you want deep thought or musical lightness.

For a previous production
Clever, Delightful, Great staging, Hilarious, Refreshing

See it if You could use a good laugh! Quirky characters charm and tumble their way through an English murder mystery to the delight of the crowd.

Don't see it if You do not care for murder mysteries with a side a slapstick and laughter. Do not see it if you are looking for a show with deep meaning.

Hamilton (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Entertaining, Great staging, Great writing, Relevant

See it if You are interested in innovative showmanship with a historical flair! Very enjoyable in spite of being abit hard to understand at times...

Don't see it if "New" and "different" are not things you look for in a musical. Do not see it if you are conservative in your approach to history and life.

See it if you want to see a unique show. If you want to be involved in a positive view of what life can be like set to music, this is your show.

Junk
Upper W Side
Great acting, Great staging, Intelligent, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if Wall Street, money, business dealing, and shady deals are your thing. Set in 1985, JUNK gives a bird's eye view of a deal as it unravels.
