Thought-provoking, Resonant, Ambitious

See it if you have a love of the absurd and thought-provoking, and love it told thru some good ole bawdy humor with meaning that can hit home.

Don't see it if you have delicate sensibilities or don't welcome a bit of an intellectual challenge.

Also A cursory knowledge of Titus will help and yes, it's a lot of fart and... Read more Read less

Enchanting, Indulgent, Delightful

See it if you love Laura Benanti and Danny Burstein; well sung and staged beautifully and Hadden-Paton really humanizes Higgins.

Don't see it if don't like MFL - it's not earth shattering and it's basically two "confirmed bachelors" playing dress up with a pretty doll. LOL

Clever, Resonant, Great orchestrations

See it if you enjoy re-imagining Sondheim classics; inventive staging and orchestrations; complicated relationships and why they become that way.

Don't see it if you can't divorce yourself from the original structure and sound.

Also This is not your father's Merrily for certain. Gemignani's orchestrati... Read more Read less

Banal, Cliched, Disappointing, Indulgent, Excruciating

See it if if you like Stockard - she's not bad with mediocre material.

Don't see it if you're looking for a thought-provoking evening or an examination of a real family drama. Just no forward motion and trite writing.

Ambitious, Entertaining, Indulgent, Quirky, Masterful

See it if the brilliant stagecraft and story telling designs. The acting has some high points but the stagecraft is the star #keepthesecrets

Don't see it if you're expecting the ninth Harry Potter movie installment.

Absorbing, Enchanting, Masterful, Intense, Relevant

See it if you want to see a masterfully handled storytelling to illuminate the human heart and spirit.

Don't see it if you're a heartless cold individual. It is by far one of the best musicals of the last decade...better than that Hamil-what thing...I think.

Cliched, Banal, Entertaining, Indulgent, Quirky

See it if a light and frothy evening with some fun, if forgettable, songs and dance are what you're in the mood for.

Don't see it if you're looking for something with depth. It coats the situation with a glossy veneer with moments of brilliance trying to break thru.

Cliched, Banal, Somewhat touching

See it if some great scenework from seasoned actors and a simple but touching story of loss and coping.

Don't see it if didn't like Next to Normal. Or if you're looking for a big splashy musical - this ain't that.

Also I wanted to like this way more than I did - such a good pedigree, but ... Read more Read less

Enchanting, Must see, Resonant

See it if creative interpretation of a classic musical that illuminates its heart and soul. Skybell's Tevye is a master class in acting

Don't see it if Don't like Fiddler.

Disappointing, Quirky, Cool puppetry

See it if you want to see some amazing puppetry...and pretty projections...and interesting but completely out of place choreography.

Don't see it if a good night of theater. Music awful; performances barely passable; book...what book?

Also The spectacle of this show and the engineering of the puppetry is what... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Enchanting, Intelligent, Intense, Romantic

See it if you're looking for an out-of-the-box broadway experience - i.e. theater as it's meant to be seen and stories told. Absolutely stunning.

Don't see it if you only want big blockbuster fluff. This is a small, intimate, personal story that requires your undivided attention-let it wash over you.

Absorbing, Enchanting, Epic, Relevant, Refreshing

See it if you want to captivated and moved by epic storytelling and riveting scenery and performances.

Don't see it if you don't want to feel. Seriously, see it before it leaves NYC - I can't imagine how they will tour this extremely special production.

Ambitious, Absorbing, Clever, Resonant, Relevant

See it if for its innovated design and story telling. The integration of the modern vernacular and classic musical theater is riveting.

Don't see it if if you have to pay exorbitant pricing for it - I still don't think it's worth all that much.

Great acting, Funny, Resonant, Quirky, Touching

See it if you want to experience this nostalgic slice of gay life pre-AIDS crisis. Touching and funny with whiffs of relevancy for a modern audience.

Don't see it if don't like Michael Urie...he is chewing that scenery for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
