Here’s my list of recommended Broadway, off-Broadway, and out-of-town shows, updated weekly. In all cases, I gave these shows favorable reviews (if sometimes qualifiedly so) in The Wall Street Journal when they opened. For more information, click on the title.
• Avenue Q (musical, R, adult subject matter and one show-stopping scene of puppet-on-puppet sex, reviewed here)
• The Fantasticks (musical, G, suitable for children capable of enjoying a love story, reviewed here)
• Tribes (drama, PG-13, closes Jan. 6, reviewed here)
CLOSING SOON IN NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE, ONTARIO:
• Misalliance (serious comedy, G/PG-13, far too talky for children, closes Oct. 27, reviewed here)
