Women Without Men
Midtown W
Dated, Real housewives of ireland (if bravo existed in the 1930's)

See it if If a group of 1930's Irish women being mildly bitchy and back-stabby for 2 hours would constitute a quality theater experience for you..

Don't see it if You are looking for big plot points or enjoy being educated, moved or entertained during the 2 hrs you commit to sitting through this show.

73
Her Requiem
Upper W Side
Slow, Great acting, Uneventful and pretentious

See it if If your looking for a moderately entertaining family dysfunction plot or are interested in learning more about how Requiems are structured

Don't see it if Slightly pedantic dialogue about music/composers is not enough to hold your attention. Every other plot element is underdeveloped and random

95
Opulent and grand

See it if You are into classic Broadway musical perfection. Amazing score- ✅ Talented cast -✅ Grand sets - ✅ Epic costuming -✅ ... Go see it!

Don't see it if You have a limited attention span.. It's 3 hours long.

95
Absorbing, Ambitious, Enchanting, Entertaining, Masterful

See it if This is an amazing theatrical interpretation of the animated movie. The emulation of African animals on stage is unbelievable..go see it

Don't see it if You are not a fan of the movie.. It's a close interpretation.. Music and all

75
Raunchy, Quirky, Funny

See it if You are looking for a good show for girls night out. It's not really a "play" nor are you actually gonna get any bedroom tips. It's just fun

Don't see it if Mildly risqué Interaction with actors or sexual themes make you uncomfortable. It's silly... not cerebral.

79
Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Cliched

See it if You can deal with what is essentially a 1 man show.. It's a clever concept

Don't see it if You tend to like big, elaborate productions...

30
The Fantasticks
Midtown W
Cliched, Disappointing, Excruciating, Overrated, Slow

See it if It's so terrible.. How is this still running? Not a single redeeming quality.. Boring plot, bad staging, bad costumes

Don't see it if You are a conscious human able to exercise free will in your theater choices

95
Riveting, Refreshing, Must see, Intelligent, Great staging

See it if Clever and interesting, with truly unique and cool technology- focused staging. Interesting plot elements about a kid on the autism spectrum

Don't see it if You are averse to non-traditional Broadway productions.

98
Rent
Midtown W
Refreshing, Thought-provoking, Raunchy, Quirky, Riveting

See it if You root for the underdog and appreciate a cerebral and grungy story. This show was pretty groundbreaking and still holds up

Don't see it if You want a happy, shiny polished "all's well that ends well" kind of story

Entertaining, Must see, Riveting, Thought-provoking, Absorbing

Sleep No More
Chelsea
Must see, Riveting, Edgy, Epic, Raunchy

See it if You want a different theater experience that is truly unique and like nothing else available in NY Hint: Be the last one on the elevator

Don't see it if You have mobility issues or want a passive experience

Cute and fluffy

See it if You are a fan of the story or Vanessa Hudgens. It's cute and light with great sets and costumes..it's exactly what you would expect it to be

Don't see it if You like your musicals complex or cerebral

73
Clever Little Lies
Midtown W
Slow, Cliched

See it if Infidelity themes and family dynamics intrigue you

Don't see it if You are looking for an engaging or fast paced plot

60
The Gin Game
Midtown W
Make it stop

See it if You really want to see Cicely Tyson or James Earl Jones live... They are both super talented but the story crawls.

Don't see it if You are looking for engaging plot or to be moved. A 90 minute lookyloo at big celebrities is the only draw here

67
Drunk Shakespeare
Midtown W
Clever, Slow, Quirky

See it if You are going out with a group and are up for an interactive experience. It's fun, it's drunk, but it's still Shakespeare in old english...

Don't see it if The thought of being called on horrifies you or you cannot tolerate Shakespeare content.

79
Hand to God
Midtown W
Edgy, Raunchy, Quirky, Funny

See it if You want to see something different and edgy... I rarely need to cover my eyes in a Broadway theater but had to a few times with this

Don't see it if Have an aversion to violence or blood or are offended easily

79
Trip of Love
Midtown W
Entertaining, Delightful, Quirky

See it if More of a series of production numbers than an actual plot. It's 60's music everyone knows- beautifully sung, staged and costumed-groovy!

Don't see it if If you are looking for a plot line or hate 60's music

95
Wicked (NYC)
Midtown W
Clever, Entertaining, Enchanting

See it if You have any level of familiarity with the story of The Wizard of Oz and love musicals.. This is one of the best!!

Don't see it if You are not into prequels...

60
China Doll
Midtown W
Make it stop

See it if You heard the terrible reviews and still need to see Pacino live. Bucket list item ✅ The majority of the dialogue is delivered into a phone

Don't see it if Unless you have to see Pacino live.. The play itself is kinda awful though I am in Finance and really appreciated the compliance plot point

30
Amazing Grace
Midtown W
Just not entertaining

See it if It's hard to articulate.. Cast was sooo talented and the story is interesting.. It just was not entertaining for whatever reason

Don't see it if Just don't see it unless you want a very expensive nap

75
Shear Madness
Midtown W
Clever, Fun and interactive

See it if You are into current event humor and are a frustrated detective lookin for a whodunit. Great group night out type show..

Don't see it if You don't care to interact and just want to be a passive audience member

75
Cool surprise twist

See it if You are enjoy family drama and dysfunction theater...it's subtle and has a cool Cold War type surprise twist that I enjoyed

Don't see it if You are looking for big production value and fast paced story

75
Steve
Midtown W
Clever, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if You are into relationship commentary type shows

Don't see it if If lgbt themes are not interesting or offensive to you

80
Allegiance
Midtown W
Thought-provoking, Relevant, Cliched

See it if You are looking to understand more about the historical event and impact on Japanese Americans...also to be able to see Lea Salonga!

Don't see it if Political message theater is not your thing

80
Delightful, Entertaining

See it if You are a fan of old Hollywood or the career retrospective type shows.. Mr. Hines is so charming and talented-- this show is like a big hug

Don't see it if You are expecting all out tap dance extravaganza

70
Cliched, Dated, Disappointing, Indulgent, Slow

See it if You are into belabored revivals with no memorable music. Even Kristin Chenowith couldn't save this one....

Don't see it if You have issues with the over acted slapstick type comedy or are looking for more than an old formulaic movie starlet focused plot

92
During previews
Blackbird
Midtown W
Absorbing, Edgy, Must see, Riveting, Dark and intense

See it if You are up for an edgy and dark storyline. You will be made to feel uncomfortable by some of the dialogue and the tension is palpable.

Don't see it if You are looking for light and breezy, or don't want to get emotionally invested in a storyline. Its both amazing and horrifying all at once

89
For a previous production
Rock of Ages
Midtown W
I wanna rock!!!!

See it if You are into 80's hair metal music. Best version of a juke box musical because the songs are the biggest hits from the 80's hair metal genre

Don't see it if You are looking for an interesting plot or character development.. The music is the only reason to go see this and it's reason enough

70
Old Hats
Midtown W
Old timey and fun

See it if You are in the mood for a vaudeville type show that is slap-stick and almost entirely silent clowning. The cast and band are entertaining!

Don't see it if If silly is not your thing..I think if you are in the right mind-set this is a fun and unique show. A nice change from the same old formats

68
Campy and over the top

See it if You are into campy, over the top musicals. I get that it's cliched and over acted on purpose, but it misses the mark and lands in corny town

Don't see it if You're looking for a quality theater experience. I found the style off putting and cheesy, but not entertainingly silly-just strained muggin

80
Misery
Midtown W
Intense, Slow

See it if You are a fan of the Stephen King or movie... Laurie Metcalf as the #1 fan is sooo good while Bruce Willis should stick to action films

Don't see it if You are not into darker themed productions..

79
Intense, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You are a fan of the score that is familiar and amazing. This was just a darker production than the movie or previous stagings I have seen.

Don't see it if You don't wanna be bummed out and feel like you could use a drink.. It's not a happy show

93
Must see, Riveting, Intense, Delightful, Exquisite

See it if You really want to see a beautiful and moving show and can deal with the sense of unhappiness that pervades every characters plot points

Don't see it if It's kind of a bummer...I mean the title says it all-- so if you are not up for that kind of a theater experience don't do it

85
Annie
Brooklyn
Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Funny

See it if You're as nostalgic as I am in that it was the first Broadway show my parents ever took me to. It's a classic and such a great show..

Don't see it if You are heartless

92
Mamma Mia!
Midtown W
Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Abbalicious

See it if You love the Abba catalog.. Seriously it's all about their music.. The story is nothing more than a framework to fit in hit after hit song.

Don't see it if Disco makes you cringe or are looking for anything more than a juke-box musical

89
On The Town
Midtown W
Clever, Enchanting, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if You are a proud New Yorker or a fan of the old MGM musical format

Don't see it if See it.. It's a classic

70
Don't believe the hype

See it if You are a die hard fan of South Park.. Uses same themes dialogue and characters as the movies ( i.e.. satan). 1st act much better than 2nd

Don't see it if You are not a fan of the South Park movies or that type of humor

82
Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Slow

See it if Fan of the stars involved (yay Mr. Shue) or the movie.. The plot drags on occasion though it is well scored and staged..

Don't see it if You are easily bored or uninterested in Peter Pan themes

89
Enchanting, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You are a fan of the movie (though it differs a bit) and a dance geek. It's heavy choreography presentation which is not for everyone

Don't see it if The dancing in musicals is not a focal point for you

79
Quirky, Funny, Fluffy, Cliched

See it if You are a fan of the movie or really enjoy the gender identification and equality themes.

Don't see it if You are looking for cerebral plot or score, or are not a fan of gender identification themes. Score is good, but thin, so alot of repeats

93
Must see, Exquisite, Enchanting

See it if It's a big splashy production with an amazing and familiar score-if you're a tourist that's not sure where to start-this is a great choice

Don't see it if You can't get behind the concept of a singing phantom

95
Aladdin (Broadway)
Midtown W
Clever, Entertaining, Must see

For a previous production
Jersey Boys (NYC)

80
I And You
Midtown E
Surprise twist

See it if Ok it's a little heavy on the lit references-- but really well acted and interesting twist at the end was EVERYTHING

Don't see it if You want big splashy production or have an irrational dislike for Walt Whitman

78
Sylvia
Midtown W
Funny, Original, Entertaining

See it if You are obsessed with your dog or know people who are-- the dog character is EVERYTHING

Don't see it if I don't really see what the draw would be if you can't relate to the situation the dog creates within her human family..

70
The Visit
Midtown W
Quirky, Original, Slow

See it if So it's definitely a unique theater experience-- the story was a bit slow but the set and Chita ( in the lead) were amazing. Story is DARK

Don't see it if You are looking for high energy and light theater experience

65
Dames at Sea
Midtown W
Cliched, Dated, Disappointing

See it if If you are into dated old Hollywood musicals.. Tap dancing is same time step over and over

Don't see it if Expecting amazing tap sequences... Kind of a snoozefest

79
Matilda
Midtown W
Cliched, Overrated, Slow

See it if You are a kid... The kids in the show are great, the story is just a little slow, so I found it a little painful as an adult

Don't see it if Your looking to be engaged by the storyline

85
Delightful, Happy and light

See it if You are looking for an easy and entertaining show...the kids are crazy talented

Don't see it if If you are looking for something cerebral

95
Enchanting, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if You are a fan of Gloria Estefan, Latin music or biopic/ jukebox stories... It's a really fun and entertaining show!! Go see it

Don't see it if 80s music is not your thing or if you can't bring yourself to sit through another "underdog making it big in American music" type story.
