Great singing, Funny, Entertaining, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if If you enjoy concert-like musicals, SIX is a must-see. Brilliant singing on top of the amazing songs and plots.

Thought-provoking, Fluffy, Indulgent, Dizzying, Disappointing

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

Great singing, Refreshing, Edgy

Don't see it if you expect a maximalist Broadway show incorporating expensive (and sometimes unnecessary) stagecraft.

Must see, Edgy, Great singing, Entertaining, Clever

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.
