Resonant, Must see, Great singing, Great writing, Absorbing

See it if You want to see a stunning feat of performance by an incredible group of singing actors. You liked "Great Comet." You dig the experimental.

Don't see it if You know your attention span won't sustain you through a 100-minute, basically plotless one-act. The esoteric makes you antsy.

During previews
Edgy, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Funny, Weird

See it if You're a fan of Nathan Lane or Julie White, or of bizarre low comedy dressed up with literary allusions and philosophical questions.

Don't see it if You don't appreciate gross-out humor, or dick jokes, or long-winded musings on the power of comedy to change the world.

Ambitious, Great acting, Great singing, Slow, Thought-provoking

See it if If you're interested in seeing a "rough draft" of a potentially brilliant future show. Or if you're interested in any of these performers.

Don't see it if You're expecting work that lives up the best of any of its creators. You're looking for a score that will get lodge in your brain.

Entertaining, Cliched, Fluffy

See it if You want to see some truly talented kids in an otherwise unchallenging musical. Bring the family. Nobody will hate it.

Don't see it if You want to see an ALW rock musical with any of the heft of "Superstar" or "Evita."

For a previous production
Hilarious, Clever, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if You love physical comedy and low-brow laughs. It delivers.

Don't see it if You're expecting anything below the surface. There's nothing there. Just all jokes, all the time.

Entertaining, Great singing, Fluffy, Goofy, Relevant

See it if You love vogueing, and a fierce display of queerness. You're a big Go-Gos fan (including the back catalog). You love RuPaul's Drag Race.

Don't see it if You're already annoyed at the explosion of jukebox musicals. Or if you'll bristle at a musical trying to prove it's woke AF.

Clever, Quirky, Funny, Cliched

See it if You like irreverent Shakespeare adaptations and twangy accents, and don't mind actors mugging for the third balcony (which doesn't exist).

Don't see it if You need your rhyming verse to have perfect meter. Also, a scene involving a man's abuse of his power over women is painful.

70
Entertaining, Intelligent, Banal, Disappointing

See it if You're interested in a banter-rich parlor dramedy. It's quick moving and entertaining in the moment. Janet McTeer scores a few big moments.

Don't see it if You're expecting something that will stick to your ribs. It's not revolutionary. I'd rather see McTeer play Hamlet. She'd be great.

Refreshing, Ambitious, Enchanting, Great singing, Great staging

See it if See it for the gorgeous Sheik score and the incredible staging. This is the rare "Alice" riff with real ideas and stakes.

Don't see it if You get squirmy during introspective ballads with dreamy, vague lyrics, or if you don't have at least a little affection for Lewis Carroll.

Delightful, Clever, Great acting, Entertaining, Relevant

See it if You want a progressive show with tons of feel-good buzz; fresh takes on campy, showbiz material; and sentiment cut with snark.

Don't see it if You're sensitive to portrayals of conservatives or midwesterners as ignorant bigots; if you can't relate to "inside baseball" showbiz jokes.

85
Intense, Great acting, Resonant

See it if You want to see a topical, buzzy, musical drama with intense performances and some great songs.

Don't see it if You're expecting a wholly original plot. You might leave wishing these interesting characters behaved a little less predictably.

85
Small, Intimate, Intelligent, Quirky, Slow

See it if You want a musical that feels like a play. You're looking for a lovely, well-observed, story about some small moments in ordinary lives.

Don't see it if You want a little razzle dazzle in your Broadway musical.

Absorbing, Delightful, Great staging, Resonant, Must see

See it if You want to cry. Seriously, I wept most of the way through this masterful production. Innovative staging. Beautiful show. Go see it.

Don't see it if You don't like shows staged in the round. Or if you're a major LaChanze purist. (Hailey Kilgore is lovely, but I miss THAT VOICE).

Absorbing, Ambitious, Great staging, Epic, Must see

See it if You want to see Rowling's magical world translated into a thrilling and very theatrical staging. Also, if you've got 7 hours to spare.

Don't see it if You need your Potter plots to be airtight, or your McGonagall accents to be convincing.

85
Relevant, Quirky, Great staging, Entertaining

See it if You want a crowd-pleasing, feel-good show doesn't recycle Top 40 songs and isn't based on a movie.

Don't see it if You want deep, rich characterizations. It kaleidoscopes through so many "local color" characters that few seem like real people.

Resonant, Indulgent, Thought-provoking

See it if If you're a big "Fiddler" fan, this version is well-polished and charming. The subtle difference in the translation are intriguing.

Don't see it if If you're expecting a ground-breaking reimagining, this isn't it. The Yiddish is the only really new element. Otherwise, it's just solid.
