See it if Timeless. Amazing updating of La Boheme. Compelling music. Worthy of seeing many times over.
Don't see it if ...you don't like rock operas; if it's difficult for you to deal with the implications and outcomes of AIDS
See it if So many positive adjectives for this TIMELESS show. The origins of the premise may be dated, but, the issues are still relevant. Classic
Don't see it if Production in all incarnations. You would only hate this musical if you're Anti-LGBT or hate musicals.
See it if You love a compelling story line of friends and lovers that strays from the conventional.
Don't see it if You don't like loud music - I really can't take people sticking their fingers in their ears at rock operas - do your homework!
See it if You can! Do whatever you can. I have seen it 4x and know the entire program by heart. No day but today!!
Don't see it if You have ever walked out of a show because you felt uncomfortable.
See it if You love a rock opera on Broadway - to me this is the best I have ever seen!
Don't see it if youre looking for something traditional/for the family - this deals with large social issues and sex + drugs and may not be for everyone
See it if You love an original work created from personal experience. This show is all heart, and is one of the best of all time.
Don't see it if You don’t want to be confronted by the pain and injustice Jonathan Larson was experiencing/witnessing when he wrote this.
See it if Viva la vie Boheme. Rapp, Pascal, Menzel, Diggs, and Rubin-Vega...career defining. Larson will always be with us. Angel Dumott Schunard.
Don't see it if Don't believe AIDS is real and that it doesn't discriminate.
See it if you love a great story about friendship & love, & if you love great music, & if you want to be reminded how much you've always loved it.
Don't see it if Realizing that it is on its 20 year anniversary tour makes you feel very old and depressed (although even then, go see it).
See it if You have a heart. It's dates and has many issues but it remains a must see. Anniversary cast is exquisite.
Don't see it if Plot holes anger you or if you have no soul.
