Ambitious, Dated, Entertaining, Overrated

See it if you are a fan of the original

Don't see it if you don't care about nitty gritty stagings.

Disappointing, Dated, Slow

See it if You like musicals with LGBT themes and drag queens.

Don't see it if You are expecting the laugh out loud moments the movie The Birdcage delivered. The show is a bit dated, slow, and not as funny as the movie

Clever, Enchanting, Entertaining, Hilarious, Masterful

See it if enjoy a multi talented cast, crew, set design team, costumes (amazing) and ambient hosts at the Rockaway site

Don't see it if the only negative can be if Fort Tilden is too long drive for you

Clever, Entertaining, Overrated, Indulgent, Fluffy

See it if You've never seen the show before and enjoy the film The Birdcage.

Don't see it if You think this is going to be an Earth-shattering profound show.

Overrated, Great dancing, Entertaining

See it if you want an over the top show with great dancing and costumes.

Don't see it if you're looking for a memorable script and score. It was entertaining, but to me, the score is very forgettable.

Dated, Entertaining, Funny, Refreshing, Romantic

See it if you love some gay male angst with your jazz hands

Don't see it if you are afraid of men in heels

Entertaining, Fluffy, Hilarious, Great acting, Great staging

See it if you never saw a production of this or you are fan of the music and/or the movie.

Don't see it if do not care for fluffy musicals.

Great acting, Great staging, Funny, Romantic, Must see

See it if you love a love story! This one never gets old. Brilliant performance by Doug Hodge. Jerry Herman at his best!

Don't see it if if you can't see passed lots of glitter to appreciate the guts it take to say "I am what I am."
