A cool compendium of critical response to Broadway and Off-Broadway shows.

An invaluable resource of people, productions, and performance venues.

Similar to the IBDB, except for Off-Broadway shows, and not quite as comprehensive.

- Avenue Q
The original "little show that could." Funny and fresh. Now playing Off-Broadway at the New World Stages.
A good jukebox musical? No. A great jukebox musical. Great songs, real people, and terrific performances
Tremendous fun, with stronger stagecraft, finer performances, a bigger heart, and heartier laughs than any other musical this season
Heartfelt and powerful. Makes you believe again in the power of theater that focuses on people, not spectacle.
- The Book of Mormon
Uproariously enjoyable. Profoundly profane, but also surprisingly sweet.
- The Bridges of Madison County
A stunning show, with a ravishing score, and two knock-out performances at the center
- The Fantasticks
A timeless little gem of a show with a universal message.
I'm not ashamed to admit it: I love Wicked. Sure, it's a spectacle, but it's got a brain and a heart, too.
