"Standing ovation for Maddie Corman. ... Accidentally Brave is a must-see. ... It's especially good because we've never seen Corman's story presented with such brutal honesty and internal turmoil. ... Accidentally or not, Maddie Corman is strong as hell." Read David Gordon's full review here.
Closes March 31!
"Undeniably entertaining, but also relevant to the magical thinking that seems to have overtaken so much of the world. ... In moments, Anastasia seems to transcend its cartoonish origins and become something one might not expect from the title: a serious Broadway musical." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.
The Band's Visit
Closes April 7!
"The sign of a truly great show is when you discover something new with each visit. So it is with The Band's Visit, the 2018 Tony Award winner for Best Musical. ... In its own unassuming way, The Band's Visit is actually the most innovative musical on Broadway." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.
"Warm and inviting. ... Most of the audience-participation gambits are in keeping with the creator's broader aim to foster a dialogue between two different languages and cultures. It's that ultimate goal...that gives Nassim a poignancy that goes beyond the pleasantly playful surface." Read Kenji Fujishima's full review here.
We Are the Tigers
Closes April 1!
"This cheerleaders-in-a-basement screamfest is not a great musical — nor is it an unpleasant way to spend two hours and change. ... Despite middling material, several actors give excellent performances. ... There's a truly crazy (and crazy-funny) musical lurking in here somewhere." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.
