See it if Shakespearean style comedy, spoken in verse, with gay/trans characters and Go-Go's music. Surprisingly clever and fun.

Don't see it if Do not see if you prefer dramas or musicals with a message.

Don't see it if Writing is just ok. Queer / trans folx scare you. Don't like The Go-Go's.

See it if You are a fan of the Go-Go's and want to hear their music performed by a cast that is clearly having fun.
Don't see it if You want a serious story, don't like fluff, and need substance. None of that here, but it was fun.
See it if you love musicals. Or! you like the Go-Go's AND obscure Elizabethan fantasias AND gender politics (srsly, who is this show aimed at?)
Don't see it if you're expecting a boring jukebox musical; a coherent, linear musical. This is farcical and fun and full of stilted Shakespeare-style verse.
See it if You’re up for a campy, wry mash-up of the Go Go’s music, Elizabethan iambic pentameter and plot, with a five-woman kick-ass pit band.
Don't see it if A story that embraces love in all its gender fluidity, sexual identity, cross-dressing & feminist philosophy disturbs. Not a jukebox musical

See it if Fizzy laughs, fun dialogue and Durand and Socha getting well-deserved originating roles amongst a talented cast makes for a fun theater slot
Don't see it if True to originating story so sudden seriousness almost implodes the fun; catchy Go-Gos tunes uneven in quality and relevance to story

Don't see it if you are annoyed by jukebox musicals or you hate the idea of modern music combined with 16th century plot/dialogue plus gender-bending.
