Skilled improv but you can see its equal or better by streaming old episodes of the tv improv show "whose line is it anyway?"

See it if fun vibe; gets audience raucously involved; very clever ability to build on comedic references thru-out evening

Don't see it if fluff; rhyming & concepts rarely brilliant; has soft core of inoffensive sentimentality; would work better in more intimate setting

Also Props to Lin-Manuel Miranda & other producers of the show. We came to ... Read more Read less

See it if Talented group of (sometimes celebrity) freestyle improvisational riffers rhyming verses with some authentic beats and sounds.

Clever, Relevant, Intelligent, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you want good entertainment and like rap and improv. Performers are very clever. A fun evening.

Don't see it if you prefer traditional theater. This is an improv show probably better suited to a music venue than Broadway.

Excellent improv, Funny, Clever

See it if you want to see a musical improv show with the focus on rap and beatboxing. Wayne Brady was a guest that night. Great time! Great host!

Don't see it if you don't like rap, improv, or comedy. It is not a book musical. Also having to lock your phone and hold it in a special bag was annoying.

Clever, Hilarious, Entertaining

See it if Talented troupe ... improvisations are impressive.

Don't see it if Show deserves to be revisited multiple times, but not at these prices. Find a smaller space with unknowns with even greater talent.

See it if I’m going to make this short- NO ONE REASON NOT TO SEE! It’s so entertaining. I’ve only seen it once, but, it’s great 👍🏽 to know that each

Don't see it if Performance would be different. I didn’t get the “superstars”, but, it didn’t matter- the 5 + 2 musicians we had were EXCELLENT. Improv on

Also Broadway- who would’ve thunk it. Some light cussing and you’d have to ... Read more Read less

See it if you are in any way interested in freestyle and are open to loose 90-minute theater experience.

Entertaining but still disappointing after the hype

See it if Improv hip hop. Every show created on the spot with audience participation. Some very clever rhymesters .

Don't see it if The quality of the show is dependent on the audience feed back suggestions and involvement and it can fall flat.

Fluffy, Entertaining, High-energy, Clever, Funny

See it if you want a fun night of hip hop improv with a raucous New York audience. Fast-paced and silly. Puts you in a good mood.

Don't see it if you don't like audience participation and can't be without your cell phone for the duration of the show. Not family friendly.

Entertaining, Clever, Refreshing, Funny, Delightful

See it if you enjoy intelligent talented improvisations.

Don't see it if you are stodgy and prefer just to sit back in a seat and be entertained. Improv/rap needs audience energy!

Overrated, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You are a fan of improvisational theater/hip hop. A laid back Bway show with audience participation discussing politics, sex, drugs, etc.

Don't see it if If you expect to see Lin Manuel-there are special guests each night but this varies. Costly for what it was-somewhat unmemorable.

See it if You enjoy impromptu theater. It is funny and cleverly done. Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen were brought onstage from the audience. A blast!

Don't see it if You detest rap. If you only like a scripted show, this is not for you.

See it if you love FLS from past shows or TV, like rap and story telling
