The classic musical, Great acting, Great writing, Hilarious, Hearatbreaking

See it if you have even the slightest interest in how musical theater works - you love beautifully written, sung, acted, and danced musical comedies

Absorbing, Funny, Great writing, Dated, Great performances

See it if you love the theatre; the gypsies who give their lives to the theatre; and the musical that loves them back.

Don't see it if you were hoping for a 'new" or "re-imagined" revival. This is virtually the original, which is both a good thing and a disappointing.

Dated, Disappointing, Overrated, Great music

See it if you're an actor, or if you've never seen a production & want to see what all the fuss is about. (I saw the Broadway revival in 2006.)

Don't see it if you're not really vested in the world of theater-- otherwise you'll probably find the show indulgent & very dull.

See it if 1st time look @ ACL on Bdwy tho I had seen prod's in college & locally. Only on Bdwy did I notice that the dancers were 2 good 4 the choreo.
