Great staging, Great singing, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You enjoy musicals at all. You like shows set in the 1940's. You like to see father/son style bonding/mentoring.

Don't see it if You couldn't care less about the period or about musicals in general. You don't want to see shows about dealing with loss.

Disappointing, Cliched

See it if You are looking for drama set in the contemporary South. If you want to see a show featuring African-American actors and characters.

Don't see it if You are looking for a well-written, well-acted romantic drama. If you expect more than cliched romantic tropes.

Great acting, Must see, Great singing, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You are looking for a heartwarming coming of age story. If you are interested in seeing how young Frances Gumm became Judy Garland.

Don't see it if You are not a fan of musicals. If you have no interest in Hollywood of the 1930's. If you don't like Judy Garland.

Disappointing, Banal, Ambitious

See it if You are interested in the early days of Nazi Germany and their treatment of intellectuals and Jews You want to get a basic sense of the time

Don't see it if You seek emotional sparks with your intellectual debates You seek human interactions, not just the play of ideas

Must see, Intelligent, Great staging, Great acting, Clever

See it if You enjoy clever takes on classic plays. If you are a romantic. If you enjoy witty, intelligent dialogue and dashing swordplay.

Don't see it if You are easily confused by actors taking on multiple roles. If you do not like romantic, swashbuckling, romantic French tales.
