BEST BETS
Need a recommendation? Here are Theasy's current favorites!

Androboros
Best Bets

TIMELY POLITICAL SATIRE

Androboros (Villain of the State)
Off Off Broadway, Play with Music

BOTTOM LINE: Just in time for election season in New York, this funny, fast-paced political satire from the eighteenth century fittingly unspools at the historic Fraunces Tavern.

ANOTHER GOOD BET: Trump Lear (Off Off Broadway, Solo Show)

Puffs
Best Bets

THEATRICAL FAN FICTION

Puffs, or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic
Off Broadway, Play

BOTTOM LINE: Puffs is Harry Potter for anyone who has ever felt like they’re a secondary character in someone else’s story.

Chalk
Best Bets

KID-FRIENDLY SILENT COMEDY

Chalk
Off Off Broadway, Clown / Solo Show

BOTTOM LINE: Alex Curtis’s delightful solo literally draws you into a world of magic, and elaborates a story of love, loss, and finding hope with one’s own strength.

Hamilton
Best Bets

REVOLUTIONARY MUSICAL

Hamilton
Broadway, Musical

BOTTOM LINE: There's good reason why Hamilton is the most popular show on Broadway.
