Great writing, Intelligent, Must see, Relevant, Riveting

See it if you want to experience perhaps the best musical ever written. Such honesty, passion and devotion are rarely seen on stage, or on the street

Don't see it if you need huge sets and gimmicks. Still, you'll be DAZZLED by the finale.

Dancing, dancing, and more dancing, Must see, Riveting, Thought-provoking, Romantic

See it if you want to see one of my favorite musicals of all time! It's a bit meta, right? (theater about the theater) but the songs are on point!

Don't see it if you don't want to go home singing "dance 10, looks 3"

Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Dancing!, Resonant

See it if you have ever wondered about more than you're own sphere of knowledge of the human experience. Or ever wanted to dance for a living.

Don't see it if you have never tried for something you really wanted and didn't get. You won't be able to relate. Or maybe...you'll start to understand?

Banal, Insipid, Overrated, Dated, Cliched

See it if This is a classic show but I hated it. The famous chorus line finale was great. The rest of it was annoying, damaged dancers complaining.

Don't see it if Hated hearing one person after another talk about their horrible lives and how abused they were and how they really need this part. Ugh.

Disappointing, Dated, Raunchy, Overrated

See it if You want to see a classic. You want to see a behind the scenes look at making a musical.

Don't see it if You are expecting more dance numbers than just "God I Hope I Get It" and "A Chorus Line." It's a lot more talking and the audition process.

Also I was disappointed. I danced to this and memorized the CD growing up. ... Read more Read less
