If you like this person's taste, follow her!
See it if You want a smart relevant piece of theater that doesn't pander with cheap Trump jokes, but instead engages a conversation.
Don't see it if You find Ted Talks grating. It has that vibe sometimes.
See it if You want a better understanding of the psychological turmoil Black people experience with their personal relationships with White people.
Don't see it if You are too prudish to be open-minded.
See it if you want to hear a bold artistic voice unpack Black trauma
Don't see it if you are triggered by self-harm, unrelenting sadness and grief, loud noises and it would do more harm than good. Power through if you can.
See it if you have money to throw around, you like seeing POC dominate a show, you like musicals, you enjoy fluffy entertainment.
Don't see it if you expect deeper choices beyond casting POC, you care about the Bechdel test, you find LMM annoying, you like interesting set design.
See it if You’re intrigued by new interpretations of old works that are concerned with inclusivity and a modern gaze on problematic stories/characters
Don't see it if You love and desire the rehashing of the classic R&H elegance with regard to singing, staging, and interpretation of their iconic works.
See it if You like bubblegum, easy theater. You like O'Hara's voice which is still incredible and stands out from the rest.
Don't see it if You want to see great acting or a show with soul. It's all very vanilla and straightforward, the set, the costumes, the singing.
See it if You want to be entertained for a few hours with great singing and dancing. If Temptations music is nostalgic for you.
Don't see it if You want depth and nuance. This is not a deep show, but it's fun.
See it if you want a play to annoy you. Not the production. The play itself. Staging was great. Acting varied.
Don't see it if you want raw/honest piece about race. Too late...all the white people who showed up to the white man’s play about race should’ve seen Scraps
See it if You like attention to detail, sensorial stimulation, gorgeous set design, movement work, minimal language.
Don't see it if You don’t feel comfortable in dark, eerie spaces, you don’t want to wear a mask for hours, you are going to pull out your phone and text.
