Must see, Masterful, Great staging, Great acting, Great singing

See it if The Outsiders is spectacular!!!! The cast is amazing!! So much energy, talent, authenticity!!! After the show i just wanted to see it again!

Don't see it if Some people might find 2nd act kind of slow (lots of ballads) I think is just a reflection of the plot. Read more

Epic, Edgy, Great acting, Exquisite, Ambitious

See it if You love amazing dancing, direction, acting, and stage combat. See it if you love hot boys and great country music, and epic storytelling.

Don't see it if You are looking for a more traditional golden-age era musical. This is a country-fried epic tale of class warfare at it's finest.

Great writing, Great staging, Great singing, Great acting, Exquisite

See it if You want to see the best new musical of the season. Big-hearted, sincere, thoughtful, and just perfectly performed by a dynamite young cast

Don't see it if This is traditional musical theater, so not what to catch if you’re looking for innovation or the freshest stories. But still—it’s lovely!

Resonant, Great writing, Great acting, Great singing, Riveting

See it if You’ve ever felt too young or too poor or too dumb or too shy or too big for the small town you grew up in…this show is for you! Great sets.

Don't see it if You’re above it all… can’t (or won’t) remember what it was like to be a confused teenager, especially if you came from a small nowhere town. Read more

See it if Some spirited grt yng actrs will make u laugh,they will make u cry&they will make u think. A superb prod esp acting,singing,dancing & music.

Don't see it if Some strobe lights may bother some. While violence is present, it is not central to the show. Read more
