See it if See at the Globe in London; by far the best of the bard. Hamlet is such an intriguing character, literally took my breath away

Don't see it if At least try it out once. Shakespearean speech might not be your "thing" but Hamlet certainly will be!

See it if Saw in London; singing was just wonderful. The story is multifaceted and positively engrossing

Don't see it if If acting makes or breaks a show, approach with trepidation.

See it if If you haven't seen "Wicked" yet, you haven't lived. Sure, it's "basic" musical theater but its also Stephan Schwartz, a true master.

Don't see it if Don't see it more than once! Gets old rather quickly

See it if Absolutely gorgeous and stirring the first time you see it. The scenery, props, costumes make the savannah come alive. Singing is astounding

Don't see it if Sometimes the cast is hit or miss; make sure you do your research on who's playing and don't see it more than once!

See it if You enjoyed the movie and the music of ABBA

Don't see it if Just don't set your expectations too high. This show is tired, dated, and it shows.

See it if A lovely adaption of the classic film. Must see for anyone with children or who is a child at heart!

Don't see it if If you're looking for something fresh, don't buy tickets to this show! It's just the movie on stage.

See it if You enjoy utterly heartbreaking, realistic storytelling. The music was instantly catchy but its hummable and the plot entirely makes up.

Don't see it if You enjoy chronological story telling. The differing "universes" of the plot get confusing at times.

See it if You are familiar with Carol King, even if its only one song! The music is easy to get into and utterly delightful.

Don't see it if You enjoy plot driven shows. Sure, this musical follows King's life but it also has to work in the songs somehow.

See it if You are a ballet or dance enthusiast. The visuals were dynamic, breathtakingly lovely and masterfully staged.

Don't see it if The plot was breathtakingly bad. Or, not bad, just nonexistent. It's campy golden-age Broadway. Go for the spectacle.

See it if If you're a fan of Shakespeare and campy musicals, this is the show for you.

Don't see it if You're not very into musicals and Shakespeare; you won't get half of the best gags!
