Don't see it if You prefer that Broadway musicals NOT sound like 80’s pop soundtracks, you want to be astonished or deeply moved. This is all surface.
See it if You loved the movie. It’s the movie with some music added. Lots of talking, so they could hit all the points from the movie. Good performers
Don't see it if You want more. Waste of talent. Love Andy Karl and Sam Barks, but they had nothing to do and zero chemistry. He’s channeling Bryan Adams.
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.

Don't see it if you don't think it could be good without Julia Roberts (it can)
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 Your a fan of the film and the two leads will add a lot to you enjoyment.
Don't see it if Not a good set to keep watching all night and Orfeh needs to tone it down a bit, my ears were ringing. The lead is pretty but comes on like
See it if you want to see a simple yet fun musical. Samantha Barks as the "Pretty Woman" did an amazing job.
Don't see it if you want to see a challenging and emotional engaging musical. The show may not be appropriate for younger children due to the prostitution
See it if you want a relatively light-hearted entertaining evening. This show is no work of art but it is fun. Good singing, dancing, costumes, sets.

See it if If you want a musicalized version of a beloved love story, that captures all the whimsy and charm of its source material.
Don't see it if If you're a big ol' stick-in-the-mud with no funny bone or heart. Shame on you!
See it if you like the movie/aren't looking for a new take; enjoyable talent; some marvelous singing; this is entertaining (not a must see)
Don't see it if you prefer to leave the theatre humming the tunes or to be wowed by choreo - not much memorable here
See it if you loved the movie. Doesn't deviate. Karl seems lackluster so fans prepare for disappointment. Orfeh is magnificent.
Don't see it if you're a feminist or want new twist on the old hooker-with-a-heart trope. Barks is wonderful but still Manic Pixie Dream Girl. Ugh.

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 huge fan of the movie & want a shot-for-shot replication. There are some standout performers, but not enough to lift this show.

See it if you are a fan of the cast or expect to see a light and fluffy musical.
