Great acting, Great singing, Epic, Masterful, Must see

See it if you are into shows that rely highly on their talent for story telling. The actors are masters at their craft and tell a beautiful story.

Don't see it if you want lots of props, a detailed set, and flashy dance numbers.

Funny, Entertaining, Great writing, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if you like a mix of social commentary and existentialism. And male nudity. Definitely has funny moments.

Don't see it if you want more of a complex linear plot and are expecting great acting from all ensemble members. Must be okay with minimalism.

Delightful, Great staging, Resonant, Masterful, Funny

See it if you enjoy musical theatre juggernauts without the flashiness shows like 42nd Street. Director adds a subtle nod to today's refugee crisis.

Don't see it if you prefer shows that are more modern or giant budget shows with overwhelming sets/flashy dance numbers. Helps to appreciate Jewish humor.

Entertaining, Fluffy, Insipid, Quirky

See it if you like dancing and musical comedy. Very high energy.

Don't see it if you don't like big flashy productions. Not the best songs.

Clever, Cliched, Entertaining, Funny, Disappointing

See it if you are familiar with musical theatre (there are lots of theatre jokes). It definitely has its funny moments as well.

Don't see it if you want memorable/beautiful music. Otherwise the show is your typical "big production" flashy show. The characters are also under developed

See it if you are interested in how technology can enhance theatre. Great writing and directing.

Don't see it if you prefer a comedy. There really is no reason not to see this. It's fantastic.

Fluffy, Quirky, Enchanting

See it if you have kids. The score is surprisingly catchy, and the show is perfect for a family night out.

Don't see it if you're not into the PG-feel of the show. Needs more substance and better dancing/staging.

Entertaining, Overrated, Great singing

See it if You love classic musical theatre. All of the leads were exquisite.

Don't see it if you're looking for something with more substance. The story is very predictable and not the most riveting.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Edgy, Confusing, Original

See it if you enjoy immersive theatre with a noir feel, you enjoy being feeling shocked and playing with your surroundings, you appreciate Macbeth

Don't see it if you are not okay with running after actors and oftentimes not quite understanding what you're watching. You'll never see the whole show.

During previews
Absorbing, Ambitious, Confusing, Original, Thought-provoking

See it if you enjoy one-man shows that boast a lot of technology. The show is highly intellectual and asks the audience to immerse themselves.

Don't see it if you have a limited tolerance for loud noises and want more of a traditional play with characters and a more detailed plot.

Slow, Intense, Excruciating, Disappointing

See it if you have an appetite for very low budget theatre and enjoy shows that center around World War II.

Don't see it if you are expecting the material and the acting to live up to the weight of the show's focus.

Also The acting was overly melodramatic, the staging was very static the en... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Must see, Refreshing, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if you like big productions that are actually well done and interesting. Based on a great story, great songs, and staged very well.

Don't see it if you like something a little more intimate or you don't think Steven Schwartz is clever.

Entertaining, Fluffy, Romantic, Great dancing

See it if you like shows with a lot of dancing. Also many of the songs are standards.

Don't see it if you like something with more substance to the plot.
