Avenue Q

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Price band: 3/4
  • Critics choice

After many years, the sassy and clever puppet musical doesn’t show its age. Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx’s deft Sesame Street–esque novelty tunes about porn and racism still earn their laughs. Avenue Q remains a sly and winning piece of metamusical tomfoolery.—David Cote

Black Angels Over Tuskegee

  • Price band: 2/4

The story of the pioneering Tuskegee Airmen, the first African-American fighter pilots, is worth telling. Unfortunately, writer-director-performer Layton Gray isn’t the one to tell it. His tediously sentimental production strings together maudlin monologues and clunky dialogue in a style so

Blue Man Group

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Price band: 4/4
  • Critics choice

Three deadpan, blue-skinned men with extraterrestrial imaginations carry this tourist fave, a show as smart as it is ridiculous. They drum on open tubs of paint, creating splashes of color; they consume Twinkies and Cap'n Crunch; they engulf the audience in a roiling sea of toilet paper. For sheer

Christmas with the Crawfords

The Fantasticks

  • Price band: 2/4

Whatever magic this semiprecious 1960 musical must once have had is in woefully short supply in this flimsy tourist-trap revival. The show’s earnestly whimsical tone has not aged well, and is poorly served by the shabby Snapple Theater Center.—Adam Feldman
