Earnest adolescent angst

See it if You loved book, want to see fresh Bway talent. Great for younger viewers with classic tale of bullies, yearning, haves and have nots.

Don't see it if You seek nuance or wit. . Nothing new in story. Some pretty songs with excellent Dallas and Darrel vocals.

See it if An emotional coming of age story told with strong musical performances. Well cast and staged, but not a play designed to leave you smiling.

Don't see it if You want a light, fun experience without a predictable social message.
