Don't see it if you are a sensitive theater goer who only likes to watch emotionally digestable works.

See it if you are here for the music and care little about technique or depth.
Don't see it if you are looking for smart performances and a focused production. What used to be a clean, masterful jukebox musical is now weary and lazy.
