Clever, Funny, Intelligent, Entertaining

See it if you enjoy a different take on stand up comedy. By a Puppet. Clever&funny delivery with audience participation. Appeared to ad-lib at times.

Don't see it if you don't appreciate one man (or puppet in this case) shows.

Absorbing, Clever, Masterful, Relevant, Must see

See it if you enjoy American history being told through music. Albeit 'Rap', of all genres of music. Even surprised me how much I enjoyed it. Superb!

Don't see it if you don't like musicals...that's all.

Great acting, Absorbing, Entertaining, Resonant

See it if you are entertained by plays portraying true events. Great cast playing multiple characters. Great history lesson.

Don't see it if a story that doesn't flow chronologically is difficult for you to follow. A lot of back and forth with scenes which is handled very well.

Ambitious, Disappointing, Raunchy, Cliched, Great staging

See it if you enjoy a gay drama with lots of male nudity which attempts to tackle the exploration of different types of relationships.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy nudity & sexuality, especially between men. A somewhat over indulging cliched plot.

Also I must mention the staging/setting was very clever.

Clever, Entertaining, Masterful, Funny, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy a one man show that engages the audience with his mastery of illusion and 'magic'. It will leave you asking; 'How did he do that?'

Don't see it if you don't have any imagination or intrigue about illusionists' work and magic!

Great acting, Entertaining, Funny, Clever

See it if you enjoy comedic period pieces. Quite funny with a great cast that delivers the fun. Nice touch with the cast sitting on the sidelines....

Don't see it if you're looking for razzle and dazzle over the top productions or if 'older style language' doesn't appeal.

Original, Disappointing, Great acting, Boring

See it if you enjoy watching British plays, hearing accents (which at times can be difficult to follow) and understand 'local' humor.

Don't see it if ....although an original story line, might help if you read up on the setting (era, economic and political events during that time).

Disappointing, Banal, Ambitious, Excruciating, At times funny

See it if you're feeling a little nostalgic and/or want to learn about the drag and transsexual scene in the early 90's. Somewhat informative.

Don't see it if you're expecting great performances or looking for a serious play about serious issues. Could have been handled a lot better.

Also Management were extremely lovely and accommodating but the Theater was... Read more Read less
