"Provided you can keep an open mind and a fortified stomach, Gary will leave you with a lot to digest as you leave the theater. Its presence in this season thrillingly asserts that Broadway can still be a home for challenging new American plays." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.


Ink

"Undeniably entertaining and unapologetically theatrical, Ink...[is] a timely, if not particularly original, new play. That's fine: Some stories bear repeating until we finally hear them." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.


The Pain of My Belligerence

"Through sleek design, a cringe-inducing story, and intense performances, Halley Feiffer's The Pain of My Belligerence forces us to consider the sizable gap between lust and joy, a chasm wide enough to swallow your whole life." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.


Snap

"When you combine fast-paced physical comedy with snazzy magic, you've got a winning show for kids. That sums up Snap, a delightful new show from South Korea whose seven performers know how to get youngsters oohing, aahing, and laughing out loud." Read Pete Hempstead's full review here.

Tootsie

"...Tootsie composer David Yazbek and book writer Robert Horn...[renovate] the 1982 film with awareness but not timidity, and [shape] some of the most precarious material into one of the most hilarious musical comedies of the Broadway season." Read Hayley Levitt's full review here.
