Disappointing, Dated, Slow, Excruciating, Confusing

See it if you want to hear about old english history in excruciating detail. Or if you want to see some interesting choices, regardless of success.

Don't see it if you value staying awake?

Also Admittedly I saw it in preview, but an actor was blatantly reading fro... Read more Read less

Assembled Identity
Soho/Tribeca
Cliched, Excruciating, Slow, Quirky, Fluffy

See it if you want a show very dependent on projections and with an easily understandable premise/message - or a show that's (thankfully) only 60 mins

Don't see it if you want any kind of nuance, you don't want weird singing and synchronised dancing that didn't add anything, you want any actual science.

Also There's these A and B series subjects and if I'm buying into the premi... Read more Read less

Folk Wandering
Midtown W
Entertaining, Great singing, Quirky, Confusing, Delightful

See it if you are looking for fun moments (I smiled a lot!), some great musical numbers and some cool staging (i.e.props that transform purpose)

Don't see it if you want a cohesive plot (there's 3 storylines that don't seem to relate much even in themes and the framing device is a bit weird...)

Also Somewhat similar vibe to Ghost Quartet, just without the neatness and ... Read more Read less

America is Hard to See
Soho/Tribeca
Must see, Profound, Great acting, Absorbing, Thought-provoking

See it if you want to see an incredible piece of theatre from amazing acting of an important story, beautiful staging and lighting, and stunning songs

Don't see it if you don't want your views on sex offenders/sexual abuse complicated, or if you want to come out with a solid opinion.

Also The notes reference Our Town and this really is a story of a whole com... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Great acting, Resonant, Disappointing

See it if you want to see Mark Rylance deliver a stunning performance, and explore mental illness. Sam Crane also is pretty great.

Don't see it if you're looking for great writing or are expecting a fully period piece (this doesn't seem to know if it is or not).

Also Act II is much worse than Act I. There's a weird breaking of the fourt... Read more Read less

Great acting, Relevant, Slow, Interesting

See it if you want to see good acting and some discussion of what feminism means

Don't see it if you're looking for something similar to A Doll's House - this more uses the name and context as a hook to get you in and to avoid exposition

91
Great acting, Great staging, Intelligent, Riveting, Ambitious

See it if you want to see incredible staging and use of the space with special effects and lighting that are crucial to the story. Plus Denise Gough!

Don't see it if you aren't interested in the experience of rehab/addicts/life.

89
Absorbing, Enchanting, Thought-provoking, Quirky, Engaging

See it if you want an inclusive open environment that allows you to participate if you want.

Don't see it if you're looking for a traditional play, as this is more of a concert with a less linear narrative.

Uncommon Sense
East Village
Delightful, Entertaining, Great staging, Thought-provoking, Clever

See it if you liked The Curious Incident, are interested in portrayals of autism and parallel stories of life.

Don't see it if you're looking for an overarching plot or a complete ending.

92
Ghost Quartet
East Village
Absorbing, Clever, Enchanting, Great singing, Quirky

See it if you're looking for something different, with music and incredible storytelling through those songs - but not a musical by any means.

Don't see it if you can't follow a complicated plot (though it seems simple by the end!) and want clear characters and literal staging.

War Paint
Midtown W
Cliched, Banal, Disappointing, Overrated, Slow

See it if you want to see Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole and don't care about the rest of the show.

Don't see it if you are looking for a plot, for songs that are distinguishable from each other, or for character development.

98
Absorbing, Ambitious, Great staging, Relevant, Intense

See it if you want to see a masterpiece that's incredible from start to finish, and just flies by.

Don't see it if you want realism or a small story.

Prurience
Upper E Side
Absorbing, Intelligent, Relevant, Quirky, Confusing

See it if you want to see an immersive show where you don't know who's acting and who's not. Well staged, very clever, and incredibly strange!

Don't see it if you want a simple/straightforward play, or are not ready to hear about adult topics (though the porn discussions weren't too graphic imo).

Also I'm still not sure if I liked it overall but I can't stop thinking abo... Read more Read less

An Ordinary Muslim
East Village
Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if you want to see a strong story with nuanced portrayals of religious Muslims in British society.

Don't see it if you don't want to see family drama or want a light-hearted/easy show (not to say this was all serious -had really funny points too)

Also Act 2 really amped up the action and drama. Strong script with great c... Read more Read less

Delightful, Fluffy, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you want to see a light, fun production of AMND and get the general gist of the play/feeling.

Don't see it if you're looking for high production quality particularly in terms of set/sound/costumes, or consistent acting from everyone.

Also 2nd act was better than first - the Mechanical's play was hilarious an... Read more Read less

Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Clever

See it if you're a Shakespeare fan and looking for a decent production of Twelfth Night with fun acting and good music.

Don't see it if you want something super traditional or modern- this falls squarely in the middle. Or if you want to catch every line especially of subplots

81
Clever, Delightful, Thought-provoking, Refreshing

See it if you want to see a reflection of a real family and a specific yet universal story.

Don't see it if you want a lot of plot because this is mostly driven by emotion

66
The Siege
Greenwich V
Slow, Thought-provoking, Disappointing, Intelligent

See it if you want to learn a little about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict

Don't see it if you're looking to be deeply moved or get a new perspective from Palestinians

Counting Sheep
Financial
Masterful, Intense, Resonant, Absorbing, Great staging

See it if you want to understand what it feels like to be in the middle of a protest.

Don't see it if you're not into audience participation and willing to be fully immersed/take part.

64
Don't Feed the Indians
East Village
Funny, Fluffy, Relevant, Banal, Cliched

See it if you want a very clear message about the treatment of indigenous peoples in the US.

Don't see it if you're looking for a nuanced argument or an inclusive environment (if you have no relation to indigenous peoples).

91
Burning Doors
East Village
Absorbing, Epic, Great staging, Intense, Relevant

See it if physical theatre and performance art are your jam, and you're looking for a whirlwind show that barely lets you breathe.

Don't see it if you're looking for a traditional straight play and simple/linear narrative.

92
Absorbing, Great acting, Intense, Masterful, Riveting

See it if you want to watch an incredible actor play multiple roles and share a lifetime in these characters with you.

Don't see it if you're not prepared to commit 6 hours of your time and pay serious attention.
