Great singing, Edgy, Intense, Resonant, Intelligent

See it if You are open to the idea that what you expect from a Rogers and Hammerstein production is not what you’re going to get.

Don't see it if You want to see the Oklahoma your grandmother loved. This is something new and different and beautiful. But not for conservative taste.

Also Obviously this production is very controversial. Many people won’t lik... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Fluffy, Hilarious, Clever

See it if Jason Robert Brown has yet to have a real hit on BroadwayHD. This one should’ve been it. An old-fashioned musical, completely entertaini

Don't see it if You don’t like the feeling of an old-fashioned Broadway extravaganza. If you need more serious content, this would not be the right show.

Great writing, Inspiring, Relevant, Great singing, Absorbing

See it if You love fabulous singing and enjoy socially relevant stories with a religious setting.

Great singing, Banal, Great dancing, Confusing, Cliched

See it if Yet another ho-hum jukebox musical. It’s not terrible. It’s not great. It’s predictable and unremarkable.

Don't see it if You want an original story, want to hear original music, want to see a plot that isn’t similar to a dozen other shows.

Insipid, Indulgent, Excruciating, Disappointing, Banal

See it if You like being part contractions with giant animatronic animals.

Don't see it if Do you like good music, great story, and a great script. The show is really really bad despite the impressive puppet

Absorbing, Delightful, Great acting, Masterful, Intelligent

See it if One of the most original and unique story lines in the musical appeals to you. There’s no big production numbers, just absorbing music/plot

Don't see it if You need tap dancing chorus lines or the familiar music of the 80s divas to enjoy a musical

Cliched, Banal, Disappointing, Dated, Fluffy

See it if You think the music of Cher is brilliant.

Don't see it if You’re expecting anything other than a costume musical that worships Cher. A vanity project gone amuck. Boring, dumb, repetitive drek.

Great singing, Entertaining, Delightful, Quirky, Refreshing

See it if “Kiss Me Kate” actually won the very first Tony award ever given for best musical. This revival is good, but not great.

Don't see it if Kelly O’Hara can do no wrong. The rest of the cast is not at her level. And the show is played jokier than normal

During previews
Predictable, Overrated, Insipid, Great acting, Cliched

See it if Go see this show if you want to see the movie again. Or if you want to see a dynamic performance by the great Santino Fontana.

Don't see it if You prefer original, modern, thought provoking musicals. There’s nothing terribly wrong & nothing terribly interesting in this movie rehash

Great singing, Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Hilarious

See it if What a hilarious show! A clever concept, beautifully executed, fast and funny. “Omelette” got a standing ovation in the middle of Act One!

Don't see it if You prefer serious musicals or if you don’t like silly, fast, over the top comedy.

Profound, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if This is one of the most brilliant shows I’ve seen in 35 years of going to Broadway. Brilliant music, amazing staging, and fabulous script.

Absorbing, Clever, Entertaining, Great writing, Great acting

See it if You like original music, an unpredictable story, and a musical that sometimes has a difficult theme.

Don't see it if You only want a happy, light, and fluffy musical. If you like predictable jukebox musicals, you will not like this show.

Absorbing, Enchanting, Exquisite, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if This brilliant revival updates a classic show without changing the work. It demonstrates what Shaw was really trying to say.

Don't see it if You are expecting only to see the Audrey Hepburn sanitized movie version.

Absorbing, Great writing, Great staging, Masterful, Must see

See it if This is a mesmerizing play. It evolve slowly, in real time, gradually revealing this serious issues at its core

Don't see it if This is a very long play. You need to be able to listen to highly accented English for well over three hours.
