Great singing, Indulgent, Loud, Disappointing

See it if you want to see a live music video. The cast were all excellent singers. They were better than the material.

Don't see it if you want a plot and characters you care about. This was a cartoon. An extremely loud show with songs that all basically sound the same.

Also Also, don’t see it if you won’t enjoy constant jokes about beheading a... Read more Read less

Lazy, Disappointing, Indulgent, Insipid, Overrated

See it if You already love the album. You want something short, poppy, and energetic.

Don't see it if You expect sincerity, originality, wit, or an actual message.

Also The crowd went wild from the moment the lights went down. It felt like... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Confusing, Disappointing

See it if You prefer a concert arena performance over a structured show with harmonious lyrics and like Xtra loud music

Don't see it if You prefer less shouted music and an audience that doesn't act as if they are at a rock concert

Insipid, Indulgent, Excruciating, Disappointing, Banal

See it if If you Don’t mind listening to six singers waste their talent on sub par material that demanded screeching every lyric

Don't see it if You want a good script, good staging or good music

Ambitious, Overrated, Indulgent, Great singing, Disappointing

See it if you want to see what will prove to be one of the biggest hits of the season and a show that is attempting to do something outside the box.

Don't see it if you want to see a traditional musical or prefer a plot, which is non existent here. The same jokes get beaten over and over again.

Also Many in the crowd seemed to love the show and some were signing along.... Read more Read less

Excruciating, Great singing, Fluffy, Dizzying, Vegas on broadway

See it if You miss high school pep rallies or have never been to one - this is something like a second chance.

Don't see it if You are averse to noise and not much else. There is serious talent on stage, but it doesn't add to anything.

Quirky, Dizzying, Disappointing

See it if you are a 12 year old that knows all 9 songs. It is staged like a concert

Don't see it if like a traditional musical with a story, good music and sets

Ambitious, Overrated, Indulgent, Disappointing, Clever

See it if you want to see a Las Vegas show a la Spice Girls. For very young adults and children. An attempt at girl empowerment.

Don't see it if you actually want a Broadway musical with a book and a story. All posing, no theatre.

Relevant, Ambitious, Great singing, Overrated, Disappointing

See it if For some reason the millenials in the audience raved over it. Not sure what appealed to them so much.

Don't see it if All lyrics,sometimes hard to understand.

Great singing, Lazy, Banal, Overrated, Disappointing

See it if You like a Spice Girls concert with high-octane singing and fan screaming from the audience. Or want to see what all the screaming's about.

Don't see it if You like a Broadway musical to deliver a plot and interesting characters.

69
Disappointing, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if You like excellent singing and a high energy cast with fun music.

Don't see it if You want more than a production which seemed like a high end finale of a voice talent competition

Fluffy, Monotonal, Overrated, Colorful, Great singing

See it if You like contemporary pop music and American Idol-type reality shows.

Don't see it if You prefer dramas or more sophisticated musicals with original scores (eg Hamilton, Hadestown).

Also Although this show was not my preferred type of music, I think it will... Read more Read less

Great singing, Funny

See it if You want to hear full throated singers at the top of their game.

Don't see it if You need a full story. You dislike screaming fans.

Also It's fun. The girls are immensely talented and work wonderfully as an ... Read more Read less
