Whimsical, Funny, Romantic, Fluffy, Great singing

See it if You enjoy cute, romantic stories with humor interspersed throughout, and/or you love Phillipa Soo.

Don't see it if You want an emotionally hard-hitting, angsty, and/or realist show.

Also Full disclosure: I have not seen the film.

Great acting, Riveting, Historical

See it if You love a mix of raw emotion and humor that explores how a family is intertwined with its country over generations.

Don't see it if You don't speak any Spanish (although there are optional subtitles, but the more you understand, the more you get out of it.)

79
Funny, Great acting, Dated

See it if You are a fan of one of the many big names in the show *cough* Nathan Lane *cough*

Don't see it if You don't like jokes regarding race, gender, etc that were...funnier in the 1920s than they are today.

86
Delightful, Great choreography, Great staging, Romantic

See it if You love Gershwin music, romance, and ballet (with a jazzy, Jerome Robbins-esque flair.)

Don't see it if You're looking for a deeply profound, life altering performance.

97
Great singing, Masterful, Must see, Profound, Riveting

See it if You enjoy cathartic tears and magnificent belting.

Don't see it if You want an emotionally light show.

Great acting, Great writing, Profound, Riveting, Funny

See it if You enjoy complicated family dynamics, have a basic understanding of c.2000 politics, and are interested in Jewish culture/identity.

Don't see it if You want a light, escapist show (although there is comic relief).

Profound, Resonant, Great acting, Great singing, Great staging

See it if You enjoy cathartic tears, intimate, contemporary staging, Ben Platt baring his soul to you, & a level of deep healing that I can't explain.

Don't see it if Trigger warning: suicide. However, this show is extremely healing re: suicidal thoughts, or anyone who has ever felt alone (in my opinion).

Clever, Edgy, Great acting, Intimate

See it if You like social commentary through dark humor and innuendo. Minimalist staging.

Don't see it if You don't like dark shows, innuendo, or history.

95
Great singing, Great acting, Funny, Masterful, Great choreography

See it if You enjoy high energy song and dance numbers interspersed with heartfelt ballads.

Don't see it if You're not a fan of drag queens.

Quirky, Clever, Hilarious, Intelligent, Entertaining

See it if You are familiar with Hamilton, its cast, and numerous other Broadway musicals/stars.

Don't see it if You are new to theatre or can't stand to hear Hamilton criticized.

Also *Note that there is a 2 drink minimum.
