Also Some of the best singing you'll hear on any Broadway stage
See it if If you enjoy concert-like musicals, SIX is a must-see. Brilliant singing on top of the amazing songs and plots.
Don't see it if This is not your typical Broadway show. It has no intermission, no stage transition, no large group dancing. Only six amazing women!
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
See it if It’s a summarized all-female Hamilton like concept and the energy alone makes it work for everyone!!!
Don't see it if If you can’t handle just an 80 minute show
See it if clever.some songs are fun, cast is good, but it is reaching, it probably was best served on a cruise ship where it started out
Don't see it if you don't like loud music with a young 'cult' like fervor through the audience...
See it if ...you enjoy catchy tunes that are well-sung.
Don't see it if ...you don't enjoy seeing characters fake ponder the meaning of what they're doing on stage. ...you enjoy consistent dancing.
See it if You like an electrifying, high energy show; you like English history (especially Tudor England.The audience was enthralled.
Don't see it if You want a more traditional musical or involved plot.
See it if You want a pop concert. The singing is great but the writing is a little juvenile. Sort of written for teens. It’s a cool idea
Don't see it if You want any type of depth or script. It’s not really a music. Very much a concert and vehicle to showcases the voices
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).
See it if I thought the show was very clever and the six actress/singers did a great job. I think it’s targeted at those under 30.
Don't see it if It’s really a type of rock musical to me, so don’t see it if you’re expecting a HAMILTON-type approach to Henry VIII. Minimal dialogue.
