See it if You love engaging, innovative theater. I may be biased, but the team is an absolute wonder. See New York in a whole new light.

Don't see it if You don't like walking theater. Like all of PopUp's work, this is not typical fair. For me, this is only a good thing.

See it if You want an amazing experience in the financial district, you are interested in street theatre, you enjoy interrupting the daily grind

Don't see it if You have any challenges walking, are uncomfortable with strangers interrupting the show, feel unsafe in street theatre settings.

"A revelatory immersive theatre experience…During the experience one is so immersed in the story being told, that it’s only in its aftermath that one can admire the flawless execution of the experience...'Broken City' is truly essential theatre. Rarely do words, direction and performance sync with such sublimity, and the fact that it makes you feel as if you’ve just discovered New York City makes it as worthy of a love song as the one it sings to this urban paradise."

"Stefan’s script struggles to keep track of its rather heavy-handed themes…It’s confusing. And it doesn’t feel very honest. Each story closes with a monologue that more or less affirms its jumbled worldview…More bizarrely, most of the action takes place in narration…A Greek chorus can provide valuable context, but Stefan’s descends into befuddling novelistic description...The overall effect is a diminishment of urgency."

"Paolina is played with an ethereal childlike wonder by Orietta Crispino. Given that she has very few lines her performance is a marvel of physicality. Credit needs to go to all of the actors. The script is sometimes stilted, but all of the performers do a good job of giving the words life. The ending is a bit precious...Overall I enjoyed the experience, but if you want to participate, you will need to leave your pragmatic self at the door."
