Don't see it if You aren't sentimental

Disappointing, Ambitious, Slow, Original, Cliched

See it if You love Sting's music, no matter how it's conveyed.

Don't see it if You are expecting a jukebox musical or a more straightforward, interesting story.

Ambitious, Cliched, Underrated, Great acting, Great direction

See it if a straightforward, prodigal-son-comes home story appeals to you.

Don't see it if you want your show to break new ground; this doesn't. But the music, direction, and performances were all standouts. Very worthwhile show.

Great singing, Absorbing, Underrated, Fred applegate was hilarious!, Story a bit contrived

See it if you want to see what life was like in the shipbuilding town where Sting grew up

Don't see it if you can't get over that some elements of the story were manipulated to fit Sting's existing songbook Read more

Great music, Slow, Indulgent, Refreshing, Ambitious

See it if you want to see something original with music by Sting (I also saw him in the show and it really added to the experience).

Don't see it if you're expecting a Sting jukebox musical.

Disappointing, Great singing, Epic, Overrated

See it if You want a slightly sad story about a community refusing to modernize, but great cast including Sting

Don't see it if You need to be invested in the story; I couldn't help getting frustrated that this town would spend so many resources on an unwanted ship

Ambitious, Slow, Overrated, Some good music

See it if Show was a bit plodding. Story was familiar, did not bring out any particular characters. Story of the decline of another industry.

Don't see it if You want something bright and cheerful, you want to come out humming a happy tune

Original, Great staging, Ambitious, Entertaining, Underrated

See it if you enjoy shows with original music. Or if you are a fan of Sting and his music.

Don't see it if you are looking for an old school musical with lots of dance numbers.
