Don't see it if Again, I know I am in the minority but I just didn't enjoy the music.
See it if you are interested in problems of the youth: drug addiction, AIDS, etc...If you want to see the 1996 winner of Best Musical and Best Actor.
Don't see it if you don't like rock and roll, or punk music. If strong themes of our times scare you. it is a must see show.

Don't see it if Le Miz dealt with poor people who wanted change. This subject matter can be disturbing to many, so it is not for everyone.

See it if you want a lesson in pushing the boundaries of a genre. There's a reason this musical was a sensation and made several actors famous.
