Prince is an American theater legend with a record-breaking 21 Tony Awards. Now he’s bringing together six decades of magical moments in this new musical, including fully staged hits from shows such as 'West Side Story,' 'Fiddler on the Roof,' 'Cabaret,' 'Evita,' 'Company,' 'Follies,' 'A Little Night Music,' 'Sweeney Todd,' and 'The Phantom of the Opera.' The production also features original songs by three-time Tony winner Jason Robert Brown ('The Bridges of Madison County'); a book by two-time Tony nominee David Thompson ('The Scottsboro Boys'); co-direction and choreography by five-time Tony winner Susan Stroman ('The Producers'); and direction by Prince himself.

Disappointing, Entertaining

See it if You want a quick review of some of Broadway's biggest hits.

Don't see it if You want to see the original staging. Not one of the musical numbers captured Prince's brilliance as a director.

Clever, Enchanting, Exquisite, Must see, Great staging

See it if you enjoy a Broadway tune because this show has them all. Mr Prince was involved with what seems like every show that has played since 1950.

Don't see it if you're expecting a drama or a comedy. This is pure song with some dance and a bit of a story. A Broadway delight!

Indulgent, Entertaining, Great singing, Nostalgic

See it if you enjoy hearing Broadway classics sung by wonderful singers. Tony Yazbeck's dancing is excellent. If you want to learn about Hal Prince.

Don't see it if you prefer shows with a narrative. This is basically a revue. Enjoy it for what it is.

Cliched, Entertaining, Fluffy

See it if you love classic musicals. It's fun to see a revue of Hal Prince's hits. I personally loved Company & Parade the best. Also Yazbeck can tap!

Don't see it if you aren't familiar with these shows, if you are looking for a cohesive story, if you don't like revues.

Also Some of the song choices were a little off. Not sure we needed 3 songs... Read more Read less

Confusing, Disappointing, Great singing, Ill-conceived, Feels small / cheap

See it if you're a fan of musical revues, great singing, and aren't concerned with the context of the numbers involved. The cast, at least, is great.

Don't see it if you don't at least have a passing knowledge of the shows Hal Prince produced or directed. Or you don't care.

Indulgent, Great singing, Great dancing, Wobbly, A little contrived

See it if you enjoy musical reviews of great as well as little known musicals, performed by a stellar cast.

Don't see it if you're looking for a plot or a through line, or if it will bother you that you've never heard of some of the shows.

Also I enjoyed the conceit of all the players depicting Prince with their g... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Overrated, Slow, Great staging, Meh

See it if you love musical revues and don't mind mediocre talent (but with amazing costumes and fun sets)

Don't see it if you expect more than dinner theater performances (with the exception of two cast members) or you have to pay full price

Delightful, Indulgent, Entertaining, Great singing, Great staging

See it if you want to see a musical review of the musicals that Harold Prince has either directed or produced. The singing was magnificent!

Disappointing, Cliched, Dated, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if You love the musicals featured in the show and don't mind sitting back and listening to a few classics for two hours.

Don't see it if You dislike revues or think this will be a sophisticated show -- it's nothing more than a long cabaret act.

Indulgent, Banal, Disappointing, Great singing, Something was missing???

See it if you want a crib sheet view of the B'way musical from the 50's thru the 90's.

Don't see it if musical theater is not your thing.

Also I wish there was more about Prince. After the first 1/2 hour the show ... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Entertaining, Great singing, Fluffy

See it if Entertaining revue but nothing spectacular. Small recreations of numbers from various shows. Felt small.

Don't see it if You want to be wowed or expect to feel moved. It's nostalgia through singing.

Superficial, Well staged, Well sung, Highly polished, Flawed premise

See it if you enjoy a revue. You'll love some songs, dislike others. Most performed well by 9 talents (5 women, 4 men!) Enjoyable, but no insight/bio

Don't see it if you want more depth than "be lucky" "work hard." Closing song's an embarrassment. Song choices are baffling; most lack context. Poor concept

Also POB is for hardcore theater lovers. If you have previous familiarity w... Read more Read less

Delightful, Great acting, Masterful, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if you love the best musical theater in the world. Here's a sparkling revue/cavalcade of Prince's productions. Terrific cast and staging. Bravo

Don't see it if you expect a story. This is a revue, and the numbers are not connected to each other, though all are wonderful.

Enchanting, Profound, Resonant, Romantic, Great singing

See it if You're old enough to have seen many of the original shows. It will take you on a wonderful nostalgic trip and make you feel part of history

Don't see it if You're quite unfamiliar with these shows. It will seem a disjointed out-of-context hodge-podge. You need to know a little history going in.
