Funny, Great acting, Original, Romantic, Masterful

See it if You enjoyed the movie or even if you didn't. Vastly improves on the film with a moving, quiet, thoughtful take on the story.

Don't see it if You don't enjoy quieter musicals without the flash of a big Broadway show. If you don't enjoy ambiguity or slow moving romance.

Absorbing, Enchanting, Masterful, Great staging, Great singing

See it if You are a musician. Every musician should see this show given the chance. But this show is for anyone who wants a lot of heart in a show.

Don't see it if You dislike folk/indie music. You want a fun, light show. It gets heavy and is not a big flashy musical. Read more

Brilliant, Entertaining, Romantic, Must see, Original

See it if imaginative staging and musical choreographic story telling leave you breathless. An utterly wondrous production.

Don't see it if if beautiful scores, romantic stories, and great performances leave you cold. Or if you're just bitter and heartless

Unusual, Exquisite, Great acting, Intimate, Intelligent

See it if you were a fan of the eponymous movie.You want to be drawn into characters and songs. It's touching and understated. Go see it, it's great.

Don't see it if you want a traditional musical. You want a happy ending wrapped in a bow. You don't want to be emotionally involved in a show.
