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 If Cinderella were real and a tart this is exactly the kind of musical she would pay to see. Andy Karl's charisma is welcome on any stage.
Don't see it if The timing couldn't be worse for this unnecessary tuneless tripe. The world has shifted! C'mon.
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 buy the premise of the cinderella story and loved the movie
Don't see it if the movie is what you will ultimately compare the stage production to, it pales by comparison
See it if you enjoy movie to stage transfers that have great leads and songs, is faithful to the movie, but lacks power & punch & leaves you so so.
Don't see it if you really loved the movie and don't want to see a cheap Broadway version with lackluster dancing and a general lack of excitement.
See it if Leads and support (Barks, Karl, Orfeh, Anderson) are individually spectacular; essentially a must-see for zealous fans of the movie
Don't see it if Script with zero surprises; Bryan Adams fans will recognize songwriting hooks which are hit or miss; audience seemed at most amused
See it if There is no reason for this show to exist in 2019. The plot is sexist and trite. The songs are boring. The hooker with a heart of gold trope
Don't see it if is tired. The staging is uninspired. The cast does its best with woefully uninteresting material. But it's time to let shows like this die.
See it if See it for the cast. Samantha Barks is great and they are all having fun. If you like the movie, I suspect you'll like this.
Don't see it if you want to see something unique. This is just blah overall. It felt like a jukebox musical but with songs you don't know.
See it if Another uninspired 2nd rate screen to stage musical made tolerable by two terrific leads and a happy ending.
Don't see it if There are better light & fluffy romantic musicals out there - this isn’t one of them. Jerry Mitchel really dropped the ball on this one!
See it if you are an Andy Karl fan. As usual he is much better than material. If you loved the movie, you will probably like the musical.
Don't see it if you want a traditional Broadway score. Every song sounds similar and they sound like a Spotify shuffle of 80's light rock.
See it if you are a fan of the cast or expect to see a light and fluffy musical.
Don't see it if you expect a great entertainment with memorable songs.
See it if you’re ok with a totally cheesy night out, surrounding by tipsy and rowdy fellow audience members.
Don't see it if you want your musical theater to have some weight or import to it.
See it if you like unnecessary movie-based musicals that so closely follow the original material they lose their own identity & '80s rock-anthem songs
Don't see it if you're expecting anything original and memorable, beyond cruise-ship review level choreography, or charismatic ensemble performances
See it if Don't! One of the worst on Broadway shows I ever seen. Great cast with a book and songs you can't see their talent. No chemistry btw leads.
Don't see it if The worst music. Horrible set. Horrible blood adaptation. The movie was great and this show is a disgrace to the movie. Horrible!
See it if You love the movie and Bryan Adams' music. Iconic costumes, iconic scenes, iconic lines. A good "date" show-- even guys can get behind it.
Don't see it if It was a soggy piece of white bread. So bland and boring. Music was forgettable. Iconic lines weren't delivered correctly.
See it if you want to indulge in a full shot of nostalgia and see a carbon copy of the movie with the iconic quotes, outfits, and everything intact
Don't see it if you expect any kind of updates to freshen it up and make it suitable for our times. the music is bland and doesn't drive the plot forward
See it if you love the story of the movie (not the movie music - obviously that not a part of the show) or if you like Bryan Adams
Don't see it if you're looking for something original - this is basically word for word the movie.
See it if you're looking a fun night out without any surprises or complexities. This show was fun and a carbon copy of the movie (but with music).
Don't see it if you don't like superficial shows. Also, why did they make Andy Karl sing like Brian Adams? Samantha Barks: great voice, awkward actress...
See it if You find “billionaire meets prostitute” a romantic concept.
Don't see it if You dislike so-so shows based on old hit movies and would rather see something more creative.
See it if you feel like you need to because you are a huge fan of the movie. It's my favorite movie and I was underwhelmed. Vivian's was well casted.
Don't see it if you have high expectations. They should've left this as play and not forced a musical. The end scene was good more than that pass.
See it if You loved the movie so much that you really cannot resist a mediocre, bland, poorly conceived but well performed adaptation.
Don't see it if Expect a classic movie converted into a classic musical.
See it if IF u absolutely loved the movie, u might like this. But I'm no fan of re-enactments of movies. No emotional engagement. Totally predictable!
Don't see it if you want some depth of ideas. Performances & production values are mostly terrific, but the story is still just glamorized sophomoric bs.
See it if you absolutely adore the movie (or Cinderella stories however misogynistic). You aren't picky about musical composition. Great physiques.
Don't see it if you tend to dislike movies turned musicals (this was the worst I've seen) or you want musical style to match character. No charm or finesse.
See it if you love the movie or are a fan of Andy Karl or Samantha Barks. It stays true to the film.
Don't see it if you want anything spectacular. Barks shines, but nothing else really stands out about the show. Great plot, but it's the same as the movie.
