I love the rodgers & hammerstein score for this, Great costumes, rags to a ballgown!, Old-fashioned, dated story but fun to hear the music

See it if I saw this back in April 2014 (before Show-score began). I loved the Julie Andrews original version and it was fun to see it fully staged.

Cliched, Indulgent, Great staging, Hammy, Exaggerated

See it if Disney "magic" is enough for you. Staging IS magical, along w/costume-changing tricks. But K Palmer's not strong enough to carry a big show.

Don't see it if over-rated over-the-top reality-tv caricatures playing themselves will ruin Disney for you. Nene Leakes playing Nene Leakes is not worth it.
