Dracula (CSC)
East Village
Thought-provoking, Quirky, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy Kate Hamill's take on classic stories, i.e., a feminist bent, strong female characters, lotsa energy in the production.

Don't see it if a modern take on a classic story doesn't suit you, even tho" the basics of the story are all there, if a bit condensed from the novel.

Also I found it very entertaining, thought the second act nicely tied the w... Read more Read less

The Crucible (Bedlam)
East Village
Thought-provoking, Must see, Intelligent, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You want to see a well directed/acted, absorbing , clearly understandable version of this play, with some controlled "Bedlam-y" aspects.

Don't see it if A three hour investment is too much for you, and/or you prefer lighter fare.

Also This was a very accessible production and I would say true to the play... Read more Read less

BLKS

Indulgent, Disappointing, Banal

See it if You want to support black theatrical artists AND you are able to withstand a play where 95% of the dialogue is not spoken but screamed.

Don't see it if You've seen enough mediocre plays and don't need to collect a Playbill from another one.

Also The story was ok, and even mildly interesting. The actors were fine, B... Read more Read less

Socrates
East Village
Thought-provoking, Must see, Great writing, Absorbing, Ambitious

See it if You enjoy a well written play of ideas. Well staged, acted. Don't mind having to pay careful attention to a lot of words and characters.

Don't see it if You have a short attention span and prefer lighter fare and plot lines that are easy to follow.

Also I really enjoyed this production and appreciated the author's and Publ... Read more Read less

All My Sons
Midtown W
Engaging, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You appreciate classic Arthur Miller and want to be transported into the lives of a play's characters . The three stars were superb.

Don't see it if You think classic Miller is dated and prefer lighter fare.

Also "Money, money, nickels and dimes...". The almighty $ continues to over... Read more Read less

Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy good music and lyrics written early on by two masters. You are comfortable with the musicals in mufti minimalism.

Don't see it if You need a big showy musical in order to be entertained.

Also Saw the 3rd performance and entire cast was outstandingly talented and... Read more Read less

Relevant, Riveting, Thought-provoking

See it if you like thought provoking theater w/themes esp.relevant in today's world.Raul E.can do/play ANYTHING!

Don't see it if you prefer to be entertained, but not jolted with political "stuff", and Brecht is too heavy for you

Also It takes a little while to get into this play, but it will eventually ... Read more Read less

The True
Midtown W
Absorbing, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Thought-provoking

See it if You love seeing theater with a top notch cast in an intimate setting. Of course Edie Falco is terrific, but so is everyone else.

Don't see it if You have no interest in back room politics and some profanity is going to offend you. Based on a real person who spoke that way,

The Ferryman (NYC)
Midtown W
Absorbing, Ambitious, Entertaining, Exquisite

See it if You LOVE theater. This is what it's all about. Funny, great story, acting and direction. Little by little we get surprises and secrets.

Don't see it if Irish accents will make it difficult for you to understand the dialogue.

Bella Bella
Midtown W
Relevant, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful, Absorbing

See it if You are a Harvey fan. You have a memory or curiosity about Bella-she was quite a force. A her-story lesson very entertainingly done.

Don't see it if A one person show doesn't appeal to you. You want/need a full biographical story about this woman.

Also Lifelong NYer who remembers Bella and her hats, not to mention her voi... Read more Read less

Linda Vista
Midtown W
Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You enjoy a well written script, great acting, an absorbing narrative, well paced production, Tracy Letts created broken characters.

Don't see it if Full nudity disturbs you. You don’t want to see a main character who is a man-child and incapable of self reflection/ correction.

Also Terrific ensemble cast, with the lead ... Read more Read less

Ink
Midtown W
Great acting, Thought-provoking, Great staging, Absorbing, Clever

See it if You enjoy a fast paced, fascinating story which provides insight into how/why we've ended up w/Fox News, cleverly directed, energetic.

Don't see it if You will have difficulty following a fast paced play with a lot of content and a variety of British accents speeding along.

Also Terrific, masterful acting, directing and staging. Close to 3 hrs, fle... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Funny, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if You're interested in the couple and enjoy engrossing, thoughtful, plays with humor. And....you want to see Metcalf and Lithgow on stage.

Don't see it if You prefer to see a fully fleshed out play, vs a prolonged sketch of about 80 minutes.

Also If not for the stars, this play would not have seen a BWY stage (IMHO)... Read more Read less

Trick or Treat
Midtown E
Absorbing, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Intense

See it if You enjoy a well written, absorbing, and funny play with terrific acting.

Don't see it if The subject of Alzheimer’s is something you want to avoid.

Also I was immediately involved...felt like a fly on the wall.

Disappointing, For teens, Fluffy

See it if you like colorful, energetic musicals lacking any lyrical or musical core, you're easily entertained seeing a favorite film set to "music".

Don't see it if You have reached voting age and don't have a youngster to accompany you.

Also There is plenty of fine talent on stage... Read more Read less

Torch Song (NYC)
Midtown W
Entertaining, Funny, Disappointing

See it if You have never seen this play. You admire Harvey and most of his output. Good acting and heartfelt.-Cast puts their all into it.

Don't see it if Orig. Off-Bwy & Bwy productions are lovingly seared in your memory. If you compare, you may be disappointed. Was it funnier/more heart?

Also Perhaps it was the direction-I was really looking fwd to this, and tho... Read more Read less

Thought-provoking, Resonant, Intense, Great acting, Funny

See it if You love engaging theater, terrific acting, Elaine May is playing a funny and heartbreaking character. She's embraced the character,

Don't see it if Aging and decline is something you don't want to watch. But it's also very funny, well written, and very true to life.
