&Juliet
&Juliet
It’s perhaps only appropriate that “&Juliet,” the thoroughly enchanting new “jukebox musical” now at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre, ends with an audience singalong to “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” the ultra-catchy Oscar-nominated theme from the 2016… [more]

A Beautiful Noise: The Neil Diamond Musical
A Beautiful Noise: The Neil Diamond Musical
Prepare to hear noise – and make noise – at “A Beautiful Noise,” the often exuberant if tonally confused biomusical about the legendary singer-songwriter Neil Diamond, now settling in for what I expect to be… [more]

A Sign of the Times
A Sign of the Times
There are probably big dollar signs in the eyes of the commercial producers of “A Sign of the Times,” the sometimes entertaining and often bloated jukebox musical – co-produced by the York Theatre Company –… [more]

Aladdin
Aladdin
Casey Nicholaw has proven more than once over his career that he knows how to create a truly show-stopping moment on stage (just think of “Show Off” from “The Drowsy Chaperone”), but the talented director-choreographer… [more]

All the Devils Are Here: How Shakespeare Invented
All the Devils Are Here: How Shakespeare Invented
Without a question, Patrick Page’s new solo outing “All the Devis are Here: How Shakespeare Invented the Villain,” now at the DR2, sounds very much like a semester-long college course. Or at least a serious,… [more]

An Enemy of The People
An Enemy of The People
The dangers of environmental recklessness. The superiority of the rich and the resentment of the poor and the immigrant. The ease with which “fake news” can be spread. The treatment of women as second-class citizens.… [more]

Appropriate
Appropriate
Raucous laughs. Loud gasps. Stunned silence. All turn out to be appropriate responses to “Appropriate,” Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ provocative play, now getting a belated – and yes, excellent -- Broadway production via Second Stage at the… [more]

Aristocrats
Aristocrats
Although Brian Friel’s 1979 drama “Aristocrats” has earned some very significant awards over the years, including the Evening Standard for Best Play and the New York Drama Critics Circle for Best Foreign Play, it has… [more]

Back to the Future

Brooklyn Laundry
Brooklyn Laundry
Someday, I suspect some arts organization will put on a festival of works by John Patrick Shanley that focuses on his penchant for unlikely couples, which will include his landmark first play “Danny and the… [more]

Chicago

For much of its 20+ year run, the Broadway revival of the brilliant John Kander-Fred Ebb musical “Chicago” at the Ambassador Theatre has attracted new audiences by bringing in a rotating series of superstars from… [more]

Corruption
Corruption
J.T. Rogers has long proved he’s capable of making compelling drama out of yesterday’s headlines, most notably in his multi-award-winning play “Oslo,” and he’s done so again with “Corruption,” now at Lincoln Center’s Mitzi Newhouse… [more]

Days of Wine and Roses
Days of Wine and Roses
It’s almost irrefutable that one will step into “Days of Wine and Roses,” now at Studio 54 after an earlier run at the Atlantic Theatre Company, wondering why JP Miller’s shattering source material about a… [more]

Dead Outlaw
Dead Outlaw
In some ways, the entertaining new musical “Dead Outlaw,” now at Audible’s Minetta Lane Theatre, reminds of me a good Chinese food meal: it’s very satisfying while it goes down, but only leaves you full… [more]

Doubt
Doubt
Revivals of acclaimed plays serve a variety of purposes to theatergoers: to see something they may have previously missed; to have the chance to re-visit a favorite piece of writing; to discover how well a… [more]

Hamlet
Hamlet
Eddie Izzard has been defying expectations (great and otherwise) for 30 years, so it should not be altogether surprising the British actor and comedian has done it again! This time, Izzard is enacting over 20… [more]

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Yes, Virginia, there’s finally some real magic back on Broadway! Fear not, even in its “slimmed-down” one-part version, Jack Thorne’s “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” a continuation of J.K. Rowling’s multi-book saga, still has… [more]

Jonah
Jonah
Coming of age tales are among the theatrical landscape’s most frequently told stories, even as each one takes a different tack on this familiar subject. That’s undeniably true of Rachel Bonds’ intriguing “Jonah,” now premiering… [more]

Kimberly Akimbo
Kimberly Akimbo
As a teenager growing up in Bergen County, I often felt older than my peers. But my plight hardly compares to the one suffered by Kimberly Levaco, the center of the brilliant new musical “Kimberly… [more]

Make Me Gorgeous
Make Me Gorgeous
In the overstuffed world of New York entertainment, sometimes you ignore good word-of mouth and, unfortunately, let something great pass you by. Which is almost what happened to me by putting off seeing "Make Me… [more]

Merrily We Roll Along
Merrily We Roll Along
How did it happen? How did British director Maria Friedman do what hasn’t been done before: Deliver a triumphant production of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s short-lived 1981 Broadway musical “Merrily We Roll Along,” which… [more]

MJ
MJ
If there’s ever been any question that Michael Jackson was one of the greatest singer-dancers that pop music has ever produced, the new biomusical “MJ,” now at Broadway’s Neil Simon Theatre, simply refutes all doubters.… [more]

Moulin Rouge! The Musical
Moulin Rouge! The Musical
As any Francophile can tell you, red is the signature hue of the new Broadway megamusical “Moulin Rouge,” now at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre. It’s prevalent in many aspects of Derek McLane’s extra-extravagant set, Catherine… [more]

Oh, Mary
Oh, Mary
If those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it, those who do learn it but aren’t afraid to make fun of it can create hilarious theater. Now, on the heels of the… [more]

Prayer for the French Republic
Prayer for the French Republic
“How do I tell him, at the end of his life, that his daughter is asking the same question he heard his parents ask when he was a little boy?” These words, while haunting on… [more]

Russian Troll Farm
Russian Troll Farm
It’s possible to still “second act” a big Broadway musical, but it would take a great deal more ingenuity to slip into the middle of a 100-minute one-act Off-Broadway play. Still, if you have the… [more]

Six
Six
“Remember us from PBS?,” Catherine of Aragon (the excellent Adrianna Hicks) cheekily asks the audience early on at the extremely entertaining “Six,” even though I doubt if many of the folks sitting inside the Brooks… [more]

Spamalot
Spamalot
With the world as it is, only the most cockeyed optimist could always look on the bright side of life. Still, I think just about anyone can do it for the 2 ½ hours it… [more]

Sunset Baby
Sunset Baby
As we have all learned, the past inevitably bumps up against the present. Sometimes it’s a headache, sometimes it’s an opportunity, and sometimes it’s a bit of both. Such is the case of the long-overdue… [more]

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
When you’ve attended the tale of “Sweeney Todd,” nearly a dozen times, it’s perhaps forgivable that indelible images of previous productions swim through your head during the early moments of Thomas Kail’s ultimately must-see version… [more]

Teeth
Teeth
Outrageously funny. Outrageously smart. Outrageously tuneful. Simply outrageous. All these descriptions fit “Teeth,” which should hopefully keep making its mark on New York’s theatrical scene long past whenever it closes at its current home, Playwrights… [more]

The Ally
The Ally
Those of us who lived through the early 1970s probably have the Certs jingle “it’s two two, two mints in one” permanently stuck in our head. In any case, it came to my mind during… [more]

The Book of Mormon
The Book of Mormon
Traditional in form and style, but subversive in content, the new musical, “The Book of Mormon,” is a no-holds-barred extravaganza rife with irreverence. Its creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, of “South Park” fame, and… [more]

The Greatest Hits Down Route 66
The Greatest Hits Down Route 66
If the title of Michael Aguirre’s “The Greatest Hits Down Route 66,” now being presented at 59E59 Theaters, doesn’t immediately let you know what to expect from this show, I assure you the 105-minute project… [more]

The Lion King

The Night of the Iguana
The Night of the Iguana
If you ask most people their thoughts about Tennessee Williams’ 1961 drama, “The Night of the Iguana,” they’ll likely regale you with memories of the star-studded 1964 film version (headlined by Richard Burton, Ava Gardner… [more]

The Notebook
The Notebook
Nicholas Sparks’ best-selling 1996 novel (and its beloved 2004 movie adaptation), “The Notebook,” is cannily designed to push more buttons than a Depression-era elevator operator. A decades-spanning tale of boy gets girl, loses girl, gets… [more]

The Outsiders
The Outsiders
At the end of “The Outsiders,” both S.E. Hinton’s groundbreaking 1967 novel about teen class warfare in Tulsa, Oklahoma and the faithful and very satisfying musical adaptation now open at the Jacobs Theatre, there is… [more]

The Seven Year Disappear
The Seven Year Disappear

The Who’s Tommy
The Who’s Tommy
Feel me. Check. See me. Double check. Hear me. Triple check. Indeed, all the boxes have been checked by the thrillingly visceral and gloriously (and loudly) sung new production of the classic 1969 rock opera… [more]

Titanique
Titanique
With so much of today’s theater forcing us to reflect on our current-day society and its moral problems, no one can blame audiences for seeking a pure escape – perhaps just like the millionaires of… [more]

Water for Elephants
Water for Elephants
Throughout “Water for Elephants,” the crowd-pleasing new musical directed by the talented Jessica Stone at the Imperial Theatre, there are amazing displays of acrobatic ability (mostly performed by the astounding members of the Canadian-based 7… [more]

White Rose
White Rose
Especially in this theatrical season – already chock full of works about antisemitism here and abroad –one can imagine producing a play based on the true tale of a group of non-Jewish 20something university students… [more]

Wicked
Wicked
This very entertaining if dangerously overstuffed musical tells the "true story" about how poor misunderstood Elphaba (Shoshanna Bean) became the Wicked Witch of the West, and how she and good witch Galinda (Jennifer Laura Thompson)… [more]
