Relevant, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if You want to support a festival where some plays are being workshopped rather than produced.

Don't see it if You want consistent acting or a script that makes any sense. The direction couldn't make up for a script with many holes in it.

Also I saw their opening, and while the cast had chemistry, only a couple o... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Dated, Great acting

See it if It's closing this weekend, so you probably can't... but an A-list cast is the reason to go!

Don't see it if You have issues with gay-centric themes (you won't find any LBTQ in this very G show) or remember the 60s but would prefer to forget.

Also While the production stays period, there's something really dated abou... Read more Read less

Funny, Ambitious, Quirky

See it if You have a deep knowledge of Shakespeare and like slapstick style comedy.

Don't see it if You hate Shakespeare or are looking for a lot of staging (scenery, costumes, etc.).

Entertaining, Great acting, Fluffy

See it if You get a discounted ticket and aren't expecting to be blown away.

Don't see it if You LOVED the film, which is pretty much better across the board.

Also Decided to see this in part because Sands/Porter are back in it and be... Read more Read less

Delightful, Absorbing, Great acting

See it if You have a beating heart.

Don't see it if You are severely triggered by 9/11.

Also This is a show that will make you laugh AND cry. While it was my first... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Slow, Resonant

See it if You love Lili Taylor and/or Janeane Garofalo. The performances are the only thing going for it.

Don't see it if Action is your bag. It's a collection of strewn together moments that don't make up for a dull theater experience.

Ambitious, Dizzying, Entertaining, Enchanting, Riveting

See it if you want to see a show that's arguably the best to hit Broadway in years (and, yes, that includes Hamilton).

Don't see it if You like dialogue; it's a pop opera, so mostly all sung.

Funny, Great acting, Quirky

See it if You like women-centric dramedy.

Don't see it if You're offended by #metoo or feminist ideas.

Ambitious, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You like one-person shows and plays with music.

Don't see it if You are triggered by abuse or don't enjoy festival-style theatre.

Enchanting, Great acting, Great staging

See it if You like classical (traditional) music or period pieces with humor, great acting and emotion.

Don't see it if You hate opera or classical music.

Also Went on a Wednesday matinee to a 2/3 house and was blown away (not by ... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Must see, Resonant

See it if you can get tickets at face value.

Don't see it if rock operas aren't your thing.

Also I bought tickets after getting tired of never winning the lottery. Obv... Read more Read less

For a previous production
Dizzying, Entertaining, Funny

See it if You just want to laugh your a$$ off and if you're a "3 Stooges" type of fan. Or if you're a community theater survivor.

Don't see it if You care at all about plot; there is none.

Also This is a dumbed down version of Noises Off, but it's a great send up ... Read more Read less

Dated, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You love the Disney film and like nostalgia. Clever use of puppets and kids.

Don't see it if you've been to Cirque du Soleil. Unfortunately, Taymor's original idea is dated. What was truly breathtaking 23 years ago is sadly lacking.

Absorbing, Great acting, Intense, Quirky, Intelligent

See it if If you ever went to high school!

Don't see it if Clever staging and good choreography is a must.
