Great staging, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if you are a fan of the Temptations and/ or Motown records.

Don't see it if You don't like first-person narrative musicals.

Disappointing, Confusing, Shakespearean, Good acting

See it if you understand Shakespeare and want to see a classic representation of the plays.

Don't see it if you were expecting a modern take on the play as told by "mean girls". Aside from their outfits, it's the classic Shakespeare play.

See it if You like the book... you want to see a show that deals with interpersonal conflicts and themes. The staging and production was well done.

STREEPSHOW!

Funny, Entertaining, Insipid

See it if You are well-versed in Streep's characters. You like campy drag shows.

Don't see it if You dislike inside jokes (knowing Streep's characters makes it much more entertaining). You don't like raunchier satires.

Don't see it if You don't like Shakespeare. You prefer elaborate sets and extravagant staging.

Brooklyn
Entertaining, Dated, Fluffy, Overrated, Expected

See it if You like the original and find the story worth seeing again. It was what I expected of this show.

Don't see it if You are critical of the performance of a Hannigan type character, being overdone. Don't like ham performances. Don't like kids.
