Relevant, Thought-provoking, Cliched

See it if You like Brian Cranston and Tony Goldwyn. Both are excellent. You enjoy live action cameras, in & out of theatre, which interact with stage

Don't see it if If don't know the movie. It will seem, old & outdated. You are a MAGA supporter with thin skin..

Ambitious, Fluffy, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if you love TKAM and want to see a new adaptation with excellent acting by Jeff Daniels, Dakin Matthews, and LaTanya Richardson Jackson.

Don't see it if you get distracted by seeing good actors, but clearly too old looking, to be playing children or don't like to be lectured to.

Also I was looking forward to seeing TKAM on Broadway and was happy Aaron S... Read more Read less

See it if Elaine May!!!

Don't see it if You don't want to be reminded of the sadness dementia brings as loved one deteriorate before your eyes.

Waitress (NYC)
Midtown W
Delightful, Enchanting, Funny, Romantic

See it if you are looking for fun musical entertainment on a date night with your first date or your partner of decades.

Don't see it if you want to be absorbed and surrounded by powerfully compelling music. The lyrics and melodies just the show tell the story in a loving way.

Also Stephanie Torns fills Jenna's shoes admirably and I hope we see her pl... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Funny, Great singing, Overrated

See it if You love Bruce.

Don't see it if You want an electric performance. It's good, but a bit disappointing to see Bruce read his biography from a huge teleprompter.

Funny, Entertaining, Great singing, Clever

See it if you want a light, fun, happy show with clever staging and a a great performance from Andy Karl -- especially in the 2nd act.`

Don't see it if you need more sophistication than a stage performance of a fun movie.

1984 (Broadway)
Midtown W
Disappointing, Slow

See it if You want a dull but appropriate story for the current world. You enjoy overly load noises and bright lights to cover-up a bad script.

Don't see it if You do not like watching torture & blood. My wife almost fainted. I found the torture scene to be so over the top I almost laughed.

Must see, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Entertaining

See it if you want to enjoy a very relevant, wonderful show with a talented, believable cast using creative staging and songs to enhance the story.

Don't see it if No reason not to see this, period.

Great staging, Fluffy, Refreshing, Clever, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy fun acapella with a simple, but truthful story of living in NYC. Great songs and talented cast.

Don't see it if You enjoy the orchestra or want more complex books.

See it if enjoy excellent drama by an ensemble which transports you to Northern Ireland and provides a message the world needs to hear.

Don't see it if you want a light hearted theatre experience

Also This play ahs so much going on I feel I need to see it again. Don't be... Read more Read less

Thought-provoking, Relevant, Great acting, Resonant

See it if You want to witness a memorable performance by Kerry Washington in a poignant and timely role.

Don't see it if You like surprise endings.

Modernized story is still funny & relevent, but the music isn't on the same level

See it if You enjoyed the movie and want to see the Plastics et al in a new form. It's a funny show with a talented cast, and you leave happy.

Don't see it if You want a musical where the music itself is the star and shines.

Disappointing, Slow, Overrated, Great acting

See it if You are a huge fan of John Lithgow regardless of script.

Don't see it if You want to be mesmerized by a wonderfully entertaining play.

Also As an actor John Lithgow tells a good story. His stage presence and ch... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Relevant, Great staging, Romantic, Entertaining

See it if You want a soft, romantic musical which transforms you to a tiny Israeli desert town where Egyptians and Israelis share their true feelings.

Don't see it if You want a big budget musical with elaborate staging and robust orchestration.

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

See it if you want to be absorbed by the back story of the historical Oslo accord. Sadly, it is still timely and perhaps revisiting this will help.

Don't see it if You don't enjoy gripping, well written and acted drama of historical events.

Absorbing, Resonant, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Clever

See it if you need to be reminded to have faith in humanity. This tale of strangers taking in strangers during an atrocity is sadly relevant still.

Don't see it if You want sophisticated music with deep character development. The character development are the actions of all the Newfoundlanders.

Also We know the story, the raw emotions, and the feelings of time freezing... Read more Read less

Cute show for middle schoolers

See it if Cute show with excellent performance by Ryan Foust as Charlie. Good play for grand parents to bring their grand children too.

Don't see it if You worry your children may be too young for the gruesome, but wonderfully choreographed, death scene of Veruca.

Clever, Great singing, Great staging, Refreshing, Dizzying

See it if You want to see a very cleaver performance that you absolutely feel you are part of. Great staging with fun, exciting performances.

Don't see it if You are looking for a traditional musical. The Great Comet is an eclectic range of music that literally pulses at times - with lights!
