Great singing, Strong staging, Gd songs/script, Family fare, Engaging

See it if you have kids in tow. BATB adapted well to stage, requiring few changes. A kid-friendly, polished Brdway show. Romantic, lush. Gd prodn #s.

Don't see it if you want fully adult fare. This isn't Sondheim. Still, I liked it more than I expected to (and my daughter loved it).

Also Every now and then, I catch up on old reviews. BATB stayed vivid in my... Read more Read less

Clever, Fluffy, Insipid, Overrated, It's disney

Don't see it if you don't like Disney classics


See it if this cartoon movie brought to life lacked the originality and the artistry of The Lion King.Good family entertainment, no creativeness.

Don't see it if you are expecting something original and unique.

Enchanting, Great music, Family-friendly, Magical, Clever

See it if you're looking for a little bit of theater magic in a really engaging musical that's fit for all ages. This is Disney at its best.

Don't see it if you're looking for something edgier & not so family-friendly

Delightful, Entertaining, Overrated

See it if A great score holds this together as well as a game cast (2 many to name over the years). A decade at the Lunt is nothing to sneeze at??

Don't see it if If U saw the animated movie (as I did) then your expectations may be too high for the sometimes clunky way the non-human characters are done

Disappointing, Fluffy, Romantic, Overrated, Cliched

See it if You're looking for a family show and you haven't actually been to Disney that much or seen their Broadway Lion King.

Don't see it if Underwhelmed me even as a kid. One of my favorite movies, yet the show didn't do anything interesting. Looked like a park-level Disney show

Traditional, Whimsical, Great singing, Romantic, Magical

See it if you breathe Disney magic like oxygen.

Don't see it if you don't want to be surrounded by kiddos during your night at the theater. Or you're just generally cynical.

Banal, Cliched, Slow, Overrated

See it if You like Disney and need something to do with the kids. Frankly, my kids were bored to tears.

Don't see it if You don't care for Disney or if your children have more sophisticated tastes. Disney likes to scare little kids, then rescue them in the end

Enchanting, Entertaining, Great staging, Absorbing

See it if If you love a beautiful story, stunning visuals and a wonderful enchanted score by Menken and Ashman/Rice;

Don't see it if If you're looking for something completely thought provoking;

Absorbing, Dated, Entertaining, Great staging, Fluffy

See it if You love Disney, are with kids or a group, as a 'starter' show. This was my first Broadway show when I was a kid & boy was I enchanted.

Don't see it if You aren't looking for Disney, big family friendly production numbers, etc. If you've seen the movie you know what you're getting.

Entertaining, Great singing, Great staging, Romantic

See it if You have kids who are Disney fans and are looking for a family friendly show.

Don't see it if You have high expectations and are expecting a big production. It's a great show and it's very similar to the movie but could be better.

Enchanting, Entertaining, Romantic

See it if you like the disney movie and the music from it, you have kids.

Don't see it if you dislike fairytales/disney.
