Clever, Funny, Raunchy

See it if You're looking for something funny, whimsical, raunchy & fun. It's amazing how they incorporate the GoGos music into a story about Arcadia.

Don't see it if You're not LGTBQ friendly & don't like the GoGos. You'll be missing Peppermint - you don't want to do that.

Clever, Enchanting, Great acting, Great singing, Underwhelming

See it if you missed it in London. Christian Borle & the cast is great & there are songs from the film that elevate the often forgettable score.

Don't see it if you want a Disney-like, dazzling, set- this is minimal with the exception of the Oompa Loompas, which were pretty innovative.

Enchanting, Great acting, Great singing, Great staging, Masterful

See it if it is beautiful revival of an iconic show you want. Bette Midler is impeccable and unmissable. This is old school vaudeville at its best!

Don't see it if you're looking for a show that will be on TKTS - it's sold out for months and deserves all the success!

Absorbing, Clever, Fluffy, Great singing

See it if you ride the subway and will get the tropes and the in jokes about it. Singing is incredible, songs are simple but effective. Happy ending!

Don't see it if you may miss hearing a full orchestra. The entire show is performed a capella!!

Clever, Enchanting, Great acting, Great staging, Riveting

See it if You want to see some amazing actors take on a well known tale. Liev Schreiber is delicious. Staging was innovative despite no moving sets.

Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Great singing, Great staging

See it if You missed it in the 80s. You want to hear that GORGEOUS score played exquisitely by a large orchestra and see those amazing costumes.

Don't see it if You're not a cat person or expect to understand the plot - there isn't any! The singing and dancing are AMAZING and worth the price.

Great acting, Great singing

See it if You want to see a full production of the classic music Les Miz

Don't see it if You think it will be as good as the original run; this is more of the scaled-down tour version; not as grand, no turntable for the barricade

Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging, Great singing, Masterful

See it if You like immersive, intimate theater and want to have dinner in a 5th Avenue mansion like it was in 1904. Also, if you can afford it!

Don't see it if You want to sit the entire time - the play does involve standing for lengthy periods and moving from room to room.

Also I was very impressed with this unique production. The company welcomes... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Slow, Intense

See it if You want to see a spectacle a la Spiderman. Kong is an incredible feat of puppetry worth the ticket price.

Don't see it if You're looking for a well written & engrossing musical that could stand alone without spectacle.

Banal, Disappointing

See it if You like paying $70 per ticket to see someone blow bubbles. Star of show was self-indulgent, spent most of the time talking about himself

Don't see it if You think anyone could do anything interesting with bubbles - they can't, they're bubbles. Go to the park and blow bubbles with your kids
