Ambitious, Funny, Enchanting, Delightful, Clever

See it if You want to hear a crackerjack funny book and see a crazy good performance from Fontano.

Don't see it if You're going to get worked up about the controversy. The show works. Also, there aren't any huge group numbers done genuinely. Sad.

Delightful, Funny, Entertaining, Clever, Absorbing

See it if You want to have a good night out with a lots and lots of laughs. You will be super impressed, if you can get a cheap ticket go.

Don't see it if You don't want to sit through the flubbed moments to get to the wonderful ones.

Also Because Chris Jackson was on there was a wonderful tender improv about... Read more Read less

Hilarious, Crazy vocals, Respectful, Clean, Clever

See it if You want to see a production of Little Shop with crazy good Urchins and an amazing new interpretation of Orin (and others) by Borle

Don't see it if You don't like the campiness of the material: this production feeds on it even more than previous New York productions.

Also Great venue for this show. Amazing singing and Groff was surprisingly ... Read more Read less

Fluffy, Great staging, Slow

See it if You have kids and like ... puppetry. You might also enjoy it more if you are NOT super familiar with the film

Don't see it if You want to enjoy watching the first act, as it is entirely expositional (which hurts as the story is predictable)

Absorbing, Great acting, Resonant

See it if You have teenage children, you want to see effective pop music theatre story telling.

Don't see it if You are not willing to give your entire heart to the show.It is not one that will be enjoyed if you look upon it with predisposed skepticism

Great writing, Masterful, Intelligent, Resonant, Must see

See it if You want to see what a modern musical looks and sounds like.

Don't see it if It takes a while for you to understand plot — the show never stops

Profound, Slow, Refreshing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You want to see some great performances, chill out, and have a good think.

Don't see it if You don't like PInter. This show is a pretty simple concept and kind of is just a thought experiment, and this production farms that out.

Also I'm a huge fan of Hiddleston (over film), but I was a little disappoin... Read more Read less

Quirky, Refreshing, Hilarious, Great writing, Clever

See it if You want to see a new Gwon show! His songs here have the same depth as Ordinary Days despite the new sound palette. McCartan flourishes.

Don't see it if You want to see a fully polished show. The score is great, but it is clearly still being workshopped and it takes a bit to ramp up.

Entertaining, Great singing, Fluffy, Epic, Ambitious

See it if You like camp and aren’t afraid to let go of a critical eye to have a fun night at the theatre. There is also plenty of high belting.

Don't see it if You are cynical or need all theatre to be %100 realistic and “adult-like”.

Delightful, Cliched, Great singing

See it if You want a fun time at the theatre and aren't going to judge a simple book.

Don't see it if You want a super original storyline or harmonically complex music

Great singing, Fluffy, Refreshing, Delightful, Heartwarming

See it if You want a fun night out at the theatre seeing a cute musical with a poppy score that will not bore

Don't see it if You are opposed to clichés and musicals centred around the star.

Great writing, Great staging, Quirky, Canadian, Absorbing

See it if You want to see a feel-good musical about a small town in Northern Canada that celebrates love

Don't see it if Predictable plots annoy you
