The Parisian Woman
Midtown W
Great acting, Good concept, Poor writing, Mediocre direction, Resonant

See it if You want to watch talented actors tackle a challenging script with compelling themes. Uma and Josh deliver on their performances.

Don't see it if You're expecting a poignant, cohesive book.

Clever, Funny, Great acting, Masterful, Refreshing

See it if You desire an intimate evening of storytelling. Lithgow smoothly transforms from one character to the next with expert skill and heart.

Don't see it if You want a large, splashy Broadway musical production. This is a unique, beautifully executed one-person show with a great talent.

Enchanting, Entertaining, Great staging, Refreshing, Imaginative

See it if You want a show that is playful, will make you smile, yet has depth. The immersive style of staging fits this show perfectly.

Don't see it if You're allergic to goats.

Lobby Hero
Midtown W
Cliched, Disappointing, Bland, Overrated, Relying on star-power

See it if You want bragging rights to seeing Evans or Cera on stage. Brian Tyree Henry did a great job, his acting carried the show.

Don't see it if You expect decent film or tv acting to translate on stage or want to enjoy an intelligent play with clever humor and with creative writing.

Ambitious, Dated, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Mediocre execution

See it if You want to observe a view of the deaf experience from the 1970s that features impressive, challenging ASL with several talented deaf actors

Don't see it if You expect to emotionally respond to the characters or story. While there is much talent here, it isn't gathered or expressed effectively.

85
Delightful, Great singing, Phenomenal dancing, Powerful, Masterful choreography

See it if You enjoy well balanced musicals with both frivolity and darkness. Renee Fleming, Joshua Henry and Lindsay Mendez are all brilliant in this.

Don't see it if You expect chemistry between Joshua Henry and Jessie Mueller. Joshua Henry is strong on his own but together there isn't any passion.

98
Absorbing, Exquisite, Great acting, Great writing, Poignant

See it if You're ready to settle in for an engrossing portrayal of humanity's recent history, even if you've seen other productions.

Don't see it if You prefer light-hearted, clearly defined Broadway fare.

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

See it if British physical comedy, full of farce and slapstick. Laughed throughout the show. Outstanding set with stunts that leave no room for error.

Don't see it if don't like British physical comedy. It's full of fun and a marvelous night out, expertly executed.

Oslo (Broadway)
Upper W Side
Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if you want to see an entire cast act outstandingly well, appreciate political drama with brilliant writing that's relevant and inspiring.

Don't see it if you don't like political drama or long plays.

31
Disappointing, Overrated, Miscast, Poor lighting, Dated

See it if to see Bette, who no longer sings well, can't dance, brings little energy to the production. Garish, acidic lighting scalds costumes/sets.

Don't see it if you don't want to clap solely for someone appearing on stage. Creel and Baldwin do well, but not up to usual standard. Hyde Pierce is flat.

90
Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Great staging, Intense

See it if brilliant acting, sets and costumes and intense, classic family drama. Linney, Nixon and Thomas are incredible. Other actors good too.

Don't see it if you want a light, frivolous story.

95
Inventive, Great writing, Breath-taking singing, Gorgeous costumes, Enchanting

See it if uh, Mark Rylance! His performance is deep, subdued and powerful Iestyn Davies is superb. A purely beautiful production.

Don't see it if You prefer overt entertainment to subtle performances.

83
Clever, Entertaining, Hilarious, Relevant, Resonant

See it if You want a serious subject addressed with sensitivity and humor. Congrats for drawing much needed attention to important issues.

Don't see it if You don't enjoy stand up comedy and skits combined with Broadway quality acting utilized in a unique, creative way, but with crude humor.

86
Absorbing, Great singing, Riveting, Immersive-theatre, Entertaining

See it if You want to experience Sondheim's Sweeney up close in all it's glory. It's a fully entertaining evening with high quality vocals and music.

Don't see it if You are squeamish or desire comfortable seats.

Disappointing, Poor direction, Great score

See it if You want to hear Yazbek's inventive score performed live and watch Lenk's dazzling performance.

Don't see it if You want a flowing, cohesive story. This is flat, stagnant and unclear. Fails to measure up to the film.

80
Great acting, Great writing, Thought-provoking, Revitalized approach

See it if You want a different production-style of a classic play that places the writing in the forefront and provides a modern view of Joan.

Don't see it if You expect lavish sets and production to visually clarify the story or language. It's pure Shaw with tremendously talented acting.

Clever, Absorbing, Exquisite, Great acting, Masterful

See it if You want to see Albe's play with the perfect combination of expert actresses under Joe Mantello's brilliant directing.

Don't see it if You don't enjoy commentary on a privileged woman's journey through life or don't like analysis into the depth of human character.

90
Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent, Intense, Classic

See it if You don't want to miss a revival that remains true to it's origins with a modern perspective, incredible ensemble acting as well as Denzel.

Don't see it if You don't enjoy O'Neill's style of prodding the dark side of human nature.

81
Great singing, Great acting, Overrated, Cliched

See it if You want to see a marvelous performance by Ben Platt leaving all his emotions raw and visible on the stage. He carries this show.

Don't see it if You are tired of general pop music shows that aren't innovative and brilliant with a surprising story. Story is ok, music is nothing new.

87
Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Intense, Thought-provoking

See it if to see a solid production of a classic play with great acting in all 4 roles. Intensity broken with good humor. Forces deep thinking.

Don't see it if you don't like intense, provocative, emotional family dramas or any of the 4 actors.

96
Ambitious, Enchanting, Exquisite, Must see, Entertaining

See it if to experience something innovative and brilliantly done. Lush, genius music score. Intense, immersive, swirling action with some humor.

Don't see it if You're overwhelmed by a myriad things happening quickly all around you at one time.

Bandstand
Midtown W
Entertaining, Great singing, Great dancing

See it if Loved Cott's acting skill, the lively music and the period sets and costumes. A post WW2 story theme that while not new is entertaining.

Don't see it if You want something edgy and innovative.

97
Great acting, Absorbing, Intense, Inspiring, Great singing

See it if You wish to see the best new talent on Broadway-Cynthia Erivo. The story's intensity transforms into an inspiring, empowering anthem.

Don't see it if You don't like intense stories or spare sets or engaged audiences. Sets allowed the acting, singing to shine. Audience responds throughout.
