Enchanting, Delightful, Romantic, Upbeat, Great singing

See it if you enjoy upbeat pop music and an entertaining story about a star on the rise.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy salsa based music.

Entertaining, Indulgent, Fun, Great acting

See it if you like Gloria Estefan and jukebox musicals. The cast is fantastic, and the musical numbers (predictably) sizzle.

Don't see it if you're looking for a show substance, drama, or surprises. This is a nice flashy trip "behind the music" and not much more.

Great singing, Refreshing, Disappointing, Fluffy, Romantic

See it if You want to listen to Latin music and enjoy Latin dances. The music is absorbing, and the audience can also participate.

Don't see it if You are tired of love stories or pop music. The choreography doesn't control the pace of the narrative well, maybe because it's a light show

Banal, Cliched, Entertaining, Great staging, Overrated

See it if you like upbeat Cuban-influenced rhythms and don't mind an accompanying book full of clichés and slow scenes. Yes, it's a decided mix.

Don't see it if you grow impatient with sloppy writing, clichés and stereotypes even though some energetic dance numbers help to tilt the balance somewhat.

Don't see it if You don't like musicals

Disappointing

See it if you really really love Gloria Estefan.

Don't see it if you're just looking for an engaging musical. If you're not really into Gloria Estefan, there's no point.

Also The "salsa" was disappointing - the ensemble clearly didn't understand... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Fluffy, Delightful

See it if You like Gloria! Its a very fun jukebox musical

Don't see it if You're looking for a solid book - this was more fluff. Delightful and fun fluff but not heavy hitting.
