Exquisite, Riveting, Must see, Masterful, Great acting

See it if you can find a production that lives up to the caliber of the 2011 Broadway revival. This show was exquisite.

Don't see it if you're not a fan of Sondheim. Follies contains some of his best work.

Ambitious, Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Great singing

See it if You love Sondheim, his 2nd greatest show. Legendary and deservedly so (I’m writing this in 2018, the National Theater (UK) prod gets a 100.

Don't see it if You don’t like to think, don’t like musicals (what’s wrong with you?!, NYC invented this art form)

Romantic, Enchanting, Great acting, Great music, Great singing

See it if you like-romantic musicals-great costume design-new renditions of Broadway standards-incredible ensemble casts-thought provoking musicals

Don't see it if you-don't like Sondheim-want a musical comedy-are looking for a modern avant-garde piece (this is classic/vaudevillian Broadway at its best)
