See it if You are a fan of the movie. The performances are excellent (esp Barks, Karl & Orfeh). Music is pleasing & the story is a classic. Very fun
Don't see it if You don't like the movie or are looking for a highfalutin show. They could have spent more money on the sets which were not great.
See it if You liked the movie. This is a nice recreation with great singing and acting, a few special moments though no songs rise to stay in memory.
Don't see it if You expect any sort of originality or interesting interpretation at all. This is strictly film to stage, almost scene for scene.
See it if you want to see an excellent vehicle for Orfeh to sing her face off and/or you like 80s power ballads with bad lyrics.
Don't see it if you want to see compelling storytelling that values hitting all the emotional beats to earn every moment along the way.
See it if you want to see a faithful (in story) musical adaptation of the 1990 film, and you really enjoy the cheesy AC music of Bryan Adams.
Don't see it if you wish to avoid a charmless Vivian, chemistry-free leads, out-of-touch book, vapid, generic score, cheap-looking sets & lazy choreography.
See it if you're a fan of the film or the stars, curious about Brian Adams as composer, like fluffy rom-coms, fine singing, modern fairy tales
Don't see it if don't like too much cuteness, rom-coms, predictable plot, low stakes, glorying of prostitution, forgettable music, or the film
See it if you want a good facsimile of the movie including replicating most scenes & using dialog directly from the movie; strong singing by leads
Don't see it if dull; w/o memorable music or lyrics and w/ good but not incandescent performances, this musical rarely has the magic of the fairy-tale movie
See it if You love the movie and/or Bryan Adams music and are in the mood for a light, semi-mindless, entertaining show.

See it if You liked the movie and believe if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.
Don't see it if You believe a musical is capable of adding something more or prefer impactful acting to songs belting out emotion.
See it if Great costumes & good musicians in the pit; Barks' and her dimples are adorable; Blackwell's opera singing wows the audience.
Don't see it if Poor score & direction; Andy Karl's voice can't handle the vocals/if he doesn't belt he cannot reach the notes; Show lacks energy.
See it if you loved the movie; this is pretty much a redux, albeit a fun, pretty to look at one, but the performances are strong and compelling.
