See it if You enjoy early Rock n Roll music. Want a romantic story with some deeper troubles. Want an good take on inter-racial relationships
Don't see it if You aren't interested in that era. You don't enjoy the Motown musical trend. Seems like the standard story with a different spin.
See it if it's still streaming on Netflix. Or buy the DVD. It's really good. Maybe put on the subtitles and do a sing/dance-along. Also invite me.

See it if I am so happy I saw this with the Orig. cast (2009) even though the show ran w/ replacements till 2012. Some casts have a magic & this DID!!
Don't see it if If U want your historical musical to contain "actual" songs from the era then U may have 2 skip it (go c MOTOWN), or racism is an issue 4u??

Don't see it if bittersweet stories aren't your thing or if Chad Kimball's (intentionally) sqauwky speaking voice will drive you insane.
