Understaged, Great for kids, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if you have tweens/kids who like the book or just want to have fun at the theater. It's mildly entertaining for adults, but the kids LOVED it

Don't see it if You aren't going with kids or want high-production values

Delightful, Funny, Entertaining, Edgy

See it if you like your Melville told with 1/3 shadow puppets, 1/3 punk rock, and 1/3 audience participation

Don't see it if you don't have a sense of humor and want a traditional show, this one is fun and better off with a drink and an open mind

Enchanting, Great acting, Great singing, Masterful

See it if You want to see a truly unique show with world-class acting, humor, and operatic singing, but not a typical musical

Don't see it if You're a child or afraid of candles. That's all I got. This show is spectacular and beautiful, and every adult could enjoy it.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Great singing, Epic

See it if you want to feel a range of emotion, listen to some great music, and...this is just a musical everyone should experience

Great acting, Funny, Entertaining, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if you're ready for a show that lives up to ALL the hype. Of course a must-see for everyone who loves what theater can be.

Don't see it if You can't follow fast-paced dialogue and singing/rapping - if that's you, be sure to listen to the album ahead of time.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Great acting, Great writing, Masterful

See it if Everyone needs to see this show for a fresh and important telling of a classic

Clever, Intelligent, Great acting

See it if you're a fan of Joyce, Lenin, history, The Importance of Being Earnest, or Stoppard

Don't see it if you're not in the mood for a fast-paced, witty show with numerous historical and literary references that might fly over your head

Also The beginning of the first act drags a bit, and this is a humerous pla... Read more Read less

Delightful, Great acting, Great singing, Great dancing

See it if you like old-school musicals, lots of beautiful dancing, outstanding singing, and you don't mind to slow down a bit for an evening
