Confusing, Disappointing, Great singing, Great staging

See it if you like good singing and songs. Middling show.

Don't see it if In the effort to sanitize the any inkling that Gigi is a prostitute in training, characters act bizarrely around the new contrived plot

64
Dated, Cliched, Disappointing, Cute

See it if You like light musicals and don't need much substance.

Don't see it if You are expecting an improvement with the updated book. The updates did NOT help this production. The show is cute, and that's about it.

Delightful, Entertaining, Romantic, Cliched, Dated

See it if You enjoy fluffy romantic musicals.

Don't see it if You find anything too bubbly annoying.

68
Dated, Disappointing, Fluffy, Overrated, Insipid

See it if you want to see these actors. The play is dated and although there are some good songs in this case the movie is much better.

Don't see it if watch the movie instead.

66
Delightful, Cliched, Dated, Fluffy

See it if you want a light and sparkly experience; seeing Victoria Clark is always a good idea

Don't see it if you want a deep experience

81
Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Cliched, Dated

See it if you'd enjoy an old-fashioned, surprisingly sweet romance that nonetheless does feel dated thanks to social norms for women during this era.

Don't see it if you're as snobby as NY theater critics. This was a terrific production w/wonderful performances, & better than many shows that outlasted it.

Delightful, Entertaining, Romantic, Quirky, Disappointing

See it if you love vanessa hugeness

Don't see it if you want a better musical and acting.

60
Delightful, Fluffy, Romantic, Dated, Indulgent

See it if You are a fan of the movie and won't mind the story that goes nowhere; you want to see a vivacious Vanessa Hudgens becoming a Broadway star.

Don't see it if You're turned off by uninspired music, and a slow plot that's very heavy on romance.

Entertaining, Romantic, Fluffy, Dated, Great singing

See it if like cute, romantic, old fashioned musicals.

Don't see it if are looking for something more than a light hearted musical.

37
Romantic, Insipid, Excruciating, Dated, Disappointing

See it if you were given free tickets and couldn't get out of going. The revised/updated script is stupid and pointless leaving the show flat.

Don't see it if you enjoy musicals with a good story that makes sense.

74
Cute and fluffy

See it if You are a fan of the story or Vanessa Hudgens. It's cute and light with great sets and costumes..it's exactly what you would expect it to be

Don't see it if You like your musicals complex or cerebral

59
Refreshing, Cute, So-so

See it if you want something very light fare, like an appetizer

Don't see it if you want anything super intelligent or thought-provoking

2015 broadway revival, Entertaining, Turn-of-the-century france (19th-20th), Disappointing, Vanessa hudgens ('gigi') & victoria clark ('mamita')

See it if The producers expected a BIG turnout from Vanessa Hudgens fans & removed the amoral parts of the story. What they needed was a smaller venue

Don't see it if If U wanted to see a nasty little tale about older men chasing much younger women then U've come to the wrong show. Here she's 18 (not 16)??

Banal, Confusing, Dated, Disappointing, Insipid

See it if You like old-fashioned/traditional musicals with a beautiful set design. (Saw Kennedy Center version before moving to Broadway).

Don't see it if It was difficult to sit through - the "modernized" plot worked against it, making it confusing and poorly matched to the score.

Also This review is based on the pre-Broadway run at the Kennedy Center in ... Read more Read less

"Neither natural force nor chemistry, alas, is much in evidence at this fizzless toast to Parisian romance in the Belle Époque.
