See it if This was a great surprise. First act is solid. Second act drags a bit but still good. It's refreshingly funny

Don't see it if If you are married to the movie. The plot is a bit different

King Kong (NYC)

Ambitious, Cliched, Overrated, The reason to go is kong.

See it if If you are a child you will be in wonder at Kong. In fact, seeing the puppet is the only reason to go if you are an adult

Don't see it if The acting and singing is second rate. The second act flounders and parts are actually laughable.

Also Other than the Kong puppet which is a wonder, the show is rather banal... Read more Read less

Banal, Disappointing, Too long

See it if You need a nap

Don't see it if You ever saw the movies. The first act could be clipped in half. It gets better toward the end, but a lot of people at intermission.

Hilarious, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful, Clever

See it if If you like magic you'll like this show. Particularly Eric Chien who is an amazing slight of hand magician

Don't see it if You don't want to see one magician who was down right bad or another who was really creepy -- and not in a good way.

Also Eric Chien was really a highlight. Mentalist Chris Cox was really good... Read more Read less
