Enchanting, Great singing, Great staging, Epic, Slow

Clever, Absorbing, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Enchanting

See it if You like thought-provoking plays raising questions about science and humanity in story form that will stick with you. Great actors & script.

Don't see it if You don’t like small-scale plays with only four actors. Also, be aware there is a bit of coarse sexual language.

Absorbing, Quirky, Thought-provoking, Clever

See it if You enjoy non-linear stories revealed through many short scenes. It’s like a series of someone’s memories washing over you gradually.

Don't see it if You need a linear story.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Entertaining, Profound, Clever

See it if You’d like a musical expertly covering the full range of emotions for travelers affected by 9/11 and the strangers who welcomed them.

Don't see it if You’re looking for typical showtunes or pop songs. No standards here, but varied acoustic numbers to fit the creative true story perfectly.

Clever, Funny, Hilarious, Must see, Great acting

See it if You love a madcap, screwball comedy. Our family has never laughed so hard at a live show before. The actors’ timing is incredible.

Don't see it if You’re not into rapid-fire comedy and silliness, even though it has a lot of intelligence behind the creation and gets crazier every minute.

Enchanting, Great singing, Funny, Profound, Thought-provoking

See it if You love great singing and the great twist on the Wizard of Oz story. It’s funny at times and sad at others. It has a beautiful story arc.

Don't see it if You’ve never seen or read The Wizard of Oz.

Absorbing, Clever, Ambitious, Enchanting, Delightful

See it if This is a game changer for theatre. Seeing it on Broadway is ideal. I’d listened to the soundtrack, but finally seeing it was magical.

Don't see it if You are not open to new ways of expressing a story.
