Delightful, Enchanting, Great acting, Fun, Whimsical

See it if Beautiful story. Engaging. Great Music. Fun sets. Endearing

Don't see it if you don't like poetic somewhat surreal retelling of a story. Not linear.

Great singing, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Missed fosse, Over-the-top

See it if you like the show itself. Revival should have used Fosse's staging. Acrobatics didn't enhance, but it was good to have Pippin on Bway.

Don't see it if Worth seeing for the songs and insightful book (how to give life meaning). I missed the Fosse choreography, tho. Talented cast. Read more

Disappointing, Great acting, Fluffy

See it if first act was phenomenal. Fast paced, good acting, humorous to go with a good story.

Don't see it if second act falls flat on it s face, too campy, looking to hard for laughs.

Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Great staging, Refreshing

See it if A wonderful new take on a classic. Loved the circus elements.

Don't see it if At bottom, the play is weak. The spectacle, not the book, made it great.
