See it if you'd enjoy a family-oriented show. Heart-breaking yet glorious. Some numbers were magically choreographed, & E John's music is magnificent.
Don't see it if you don't like movies turned into musicals, or are married to the movie. Trust, it WORKS. Lee Hall's lyrics will break your heart, lovingly.

Don't see it if you only like comedies or don't enjoy original, intelligent, and beautifully staged shows.
See it if If you love a Rocky, rising like a phoenix story, with adorable children and a moving story. You'll tap you feet and cheer for Billy.
Don't see it if You have no soul:-) Or dislike Elton John or child actors.
See it if For any of the "Billys." Dance heavy role is so intense they cast 3 at a time. Easily the star. Good introduction to the Miners strike too.
Don't see it if You struggle with Northern British accents, know the movie too well, insist on memorable songs save one. Best for a lovely night out.

See it if You liked Kinky Boots and like stories about working class Brits learning to accept boys/men who engage in behaviors thought to be feminine.
Don't see it if You loved the movie, which is better. Elton's score is disappointing and lacks memorable songs.
See it if you love the movie. It's a great adaptation with a great score, choreography and performances!
Don't see it if inspiring stories about a small town boy following his dreams leaves you cold.

Don't see it if You want something with more depth or feeling. Want to see a realistic show. Don't enjoy children singing. Want something original
See it if you're a dancer or a dreamer. Billy's scenes are light & fun against the darker setting, and the child actors are wonderful!
Don't see it if you're not able to follow accents & you know little about the miner's strike. The strike plays a larger role than in the film
See it if you enjoy watching or learning about dancing; you love kids
Don't see it if you don't enjoy pieces centered around children; you want something purely happy without any hardship
