The Winning Side
Midtown W
Great writing, Thought-provoking, Intelligent

See it if You love theater that questions our world, both past, and present. Seeing people of color play white characters from history.

Don't see it if You need a shallow form of entertainment.

Also I feel like whatever taglines I've seen for the show are nowhere near ... Read more Read less

During previews
Slow, Cliched, Ambitious

See it if You love Vonnegut. Or if you like plays that point out something terrible about society, but end up creating more of that terrible thing.

Don't see it if You are tired of stories of selfish white men who win.

Also The acting by the female lead is the best part of the show, though it ... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Disappointing, Slow

See it if You enjoy unique historical dramas and 2-person shows with a heavy emphasis on acting. You like pretty people onstage.

Don't see it if You then need very experienced actors who can handle a 2-hander.

Also The writer does a great job of creating a unique insight into this tim... Read more Read less

Clever, Overrated, Fluffy

See it if You love kids in main roles.

Don't see it if You need good accents and something smarter.

Also The adults are great, but the children (apart from Scorpius) are prett... Read more Read less

For a previous production
Cliched, Banal, Dated

See it if You like incredibly broad physical comedy.

Don't see it if You want something smart. Or deep.

Also There are a couple very funny bits, but they’re few and far between. I... Read more Read less

Great acting, Fluffy, Entertaining

See it if You want a glitzy musical and a fantastic performance by Ariana Debose. She’s a star.

Don't see it if You need a more well-crafted story.

Also The supporting cast is all really great.

Absorbing, Great acting, Intelligent

See it if You love minimalism, under-acting, and simplicity.

Don't see it if You have trouble hearing or need lots of flashy design.

Also Wonderful acting, mostly by Jay O. Saunders. Wow, what a riveting perf... Read more Read less

Final Follies
West Village
Banal, Cliched, Dated

See it if You like stereotypes and "traditional" theater.

Don't see it if You are interested in theater that is relevant or questioning our world.

Also Honestly, I'm not sure why this play is being done. The storyline with... Read more Read less

Days to Come

Dated, Disappointing, Slow

See it if You love traditional, period shows with realistic sets.

Don't see it if You need something more relevant or unique.

Also There’s a lot of slow overacting, especially the lovers. I see why the... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Enchanting, Entertaining

See it if You love ensemble pieces. They’re fantastic and work excellently together. Great show for families as well (though still smart and engaging)

Don't see it if You want something stiff and old-fashioned.

Also This is a great, playful, heart-warming production. A bit disappointed... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Masterful, Resonant

See it if You want an emotional, brilliantly-crafted, resonsant play about our country.

Don't see it if You need lots of characters and are uncomfortable with direct address.

Also I can’t say enough wonderful things about this piece. It’s BRILLIANT. ... Read more Read less

Overrated, Slow, Resonant

See it if You are interested in antiquated feminist dialogue. Pushing for laughs.

Don't see it if It will bother you that there seem to be people of color in the peripheral parts, but none in lead roles. Incongruous.

Also There is a BRILLIANT scene at the end. Wish that was the whole play. T... Read more Read less
