It's that time again, when your trusty Theatre Is Easy writers simplify the New York theatre scene. Let us recommend...
TAKE A DATE: From Up Here
(it's endearing, and you can bond over the awkward high school scenes)
TAKE YOUR PARENTS: South Pacific
(parents are to Lincoln Center as tourists are to Times Square)
IF YOU LIKE EXPERIMENTAL THEATRE #1: Adding Machine
(a very cool musical take on a story that's nearly a century old)
IF YOU LIKE EXPERIMENTAL THEATRE #2: The Sound and the Fury
(a re-working of Falkner's novel, half read and half spoken as dialogue)
FOR A LAUGH: The 39 Steps
(it's officially on Broadway now after a super-successful run with Roundabout Theatre Co.)
FOR A SOLID STORY: Cherry Docs
(it will make you feel, it will make you think, and it's only $11 a ticket)
