SHOWS I SAW IN NYC IN OCTOBER

  1. Daddy Long Legs
    Off Broadway at the Davenport Theater. Fairly boring but strong vocals and a relatable protagonist.
  2. Eclipsed
    Off Broadway at The Public. Stunning. Every performance was stellar. Interested to see how it changes in its Broadway transfer.
  3. Barbecue
    Off Broadway at The Public. Startling, hilarious, and thought provoking. A roller coaster of a play.
  4. The Elephant In Every Room I Enter
    Off-Off Broadway at La Mama. A window into the world of Tourette's, with amazing projection design.
  5. First Daughter Suite
    Off Broadway at The Public. Somehow this is getting raved about, but I thought it was too long, had mediocre music, and people left at intermission. Eh.
  6. Spring Awakening
    On Broadway at the Brooks Atkinson. Holy shit did Deaf West astound me. Saw this twice this month: once in the mezzanine and once 5th row. Completely different viewing experiences, each with their own heart stopping merits. One of my favorite productions to date.
  7. Bronx Gothic
    Off-off Broadway at New York Live Arts. More performance art than play, this was disturbing and thought provoking and humbling and beautiful. Saw it with my mom.
  8. Fun Home
    On Broadway at Circle In The Square. This was the second time I've seen it, at an opposite end of the theater. Was, surprisingly, not better the second time around.
  9. The Humans
    Off-Broadway at Roundabout. Simple, truthful, and personal play. Terrifying and raw at times. Well deserving of its Broadway transfer.
  10. Hir
    Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons. Interesting concepts & characters, kooky and crazy and very relevant.
