See it if you love beautiful dancers performing a myriad of dances to a live orchestra and especially if you enjoy Bob Fosse's choreography.
Don't see it if you don't enjoy shows without a story and need a goo plot to grab you. And also if you don't enjoy a show that is 99% dance numbers.
See it if Yu want to go back in time and celebrate the gifts of Fosse and what he brought to dance and you just want to be delighted!
Don't see it if You are looking for a story with great singing. The stories are told thru the dance...
See it if Love Great dancing. Like musicals.
Don't see it if Want a story. Don’t like musicals and dancing.

Don't see it if You are looking for plot and characters.
See it if You love Fosse and dance performances in general, and don't mind a little singing and dialog thrown in, without a connecting story.
Don't see it if You're expecting a professional dance company level performance. This appeared to be actors who can dance, not pro dancers.
See it if Talented dancers working very hard. The dancers were excellent.
Don't see it if you are not a fan of Fosse's style of dancing (this was solidified for me after seeing the show). Read more
See it if you never saw the original production of "Dancin' ". This version is not nearly as good or breathtaking as the original production.
Don't see it if you have fond memories of the original. This version pales in comparison.
"The show is a joy every time it puts down its ax. In any case, its 16 dancers, representing a wider range by age, ethnicity, body type and gender presentation than you typically see in a Fosse cast, make a much better case for the pure dance qualities of his style than the text does."
“ ‘Dancin’, as revived and revised, softens that edge while remaining charged. The new lineup is intentionally more inclusive and edits some of Fosse’s inherent chauvinism. ”
“If Cilento and the cast and crew of Dancin' hope to attract a new generation to Fosse, then this show comes at a very interesting time when issues of gender and gender presentation are being hotly contested while TikTok has turned everyone into a dancer. The joy of movement, after all is universal. And even with a few missteps along the way, that joy pulses through ’Bob Fosse's Dancin'.”
“For some magical, mystical reason, the dancers at the end of the show still look as fresh as daisies, despite the incredible workout they get in this jam-packed act. This is one rock-solid company of dancin’ fools. Fosse would be proud.”
“Fosse, Cilento, and the cast remind us how powerful dance is as a storyteller. ‘Bob Fosse's Dancin' doesn't just make old moves fresh — it makes us feel like we're discovering Fosse anew.”
“For longtime Fosse fans, though, that raging struggle might just be the most interesting thing of all. It was for me, although I suspect the show also will please tourists looking for, well, the kind of sexy, glamorous, sensual Broadway show that mostly has disappeared despite the international audience demand.”
“Despite an amazing troupe of dancers, you probably won't feel the need to return. That's because something is missing, and it's not just Fosse...Sadly, as a homage to a genius choreographer who forever changed the way that we look at bodies in motion, we're left thinking there's gotta be something better than this.”
“...what makes the show so special is that, even though Fosse eschewed traditional theatrical collaborators and focused exclusively on choreographing the entire two hours, it is less an ego trip than it is a tribute to his own love of dance.”
