See it if you have any sense, at all, of Washington Heights & the latino experience. I do, I AM. But I didn't get what all the hype was about.
Don't see it if Lin-Manuel Miranda bugs you, even remotely. SO indugent, I almost didn't see Hamilton (gratefully I did). Nice, family-oriented, just "ok".
See it if you enjoy contemporary musicals about everyday life and the engaging stories of people your see on the street. Pleasantly surprised.
Don't see it if you don't like hip hop/rap/Latin music. If you have a problem w/immigrants and Americans we don't see on stage often stay away. Embrace it!
See it if you have a pulse & want to get acquainted (& possibly fall in love) with LMM.
Don't see it if you don't like an amazing score & a great book celebrating Pan-Latino cultures while highlighting gentrification realities.
See it if you're a Latin in Manhattan and love salsa, hiphop, and all things Lin-Manuel Miranda. The seeds for Hamilton were sown and nurtured here.
Don't see it if hispanics get you in a panic.
See it if If you're into a musical that celebrates culture and has a heartfelt story with well-developed characters;
Don't see it if If you're looking for something deeper or very over the top. This show has excellent balance.
See it if You like contemporary musicals and good story lines. Lin Manuel Mirands now owns my soul. Thanks for that.
Don't see it if You want a classic or are close minded. Probably not the best musical to take kids to.
See it if You want to see Lin-Manuel Miranda's Broadway debut, you want to see Broadway infused with hip hop and Latin culture.
Don't see it if You're expecting Hamilton. It's cliche-ridden and predictable, and frankly I think overrated in how novel it was stylistically.
See it if You love high-energy musicals. Great dancing with a fun, latin, hip-hop infused score by Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Don't see it if You don't like rap or you like your musicals languid, slow and romantic.
See it if You want to laugh, cry, and feel all the emotions through the lives of the characters, want to see how well hip hop works in a musical.
Don't see it if You like conventional musical.
