Dismal, Disappointing, Bleak, Slow

See it if You like bleak musicals about characters that are not particularly likable who you do not root for.

Don't see it if You are expecting see likable relatable characters you can root for. I just did not care for this story or music. The staging is bleak.

Cliched, Banal, Poor script/weak lyrics, Great singing, Earnest

See it if you love Sting's music. Rousing songs well-sung. The book is a mess, tho, both the plot and dialogue. Choreog disappoints (all stomping)

Don't see it if you want a sophisticated musical. This needs more attn to the writing. The actors can't pull off the weak material. Still, not a disaster. Read more

Disappointing, Ambitious, Slow, Original, Cliched

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

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 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.

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
