Refreshing, Disappointing, Entertaining, Confusing

See it if You like interesting dancing and songs. Some of it is great such as the King.

Don't see it if You have tickets on mezzanine. Half the show is cut off because of low ceiling. See tour. Much better.

Absorbing, Funny, Long

See it if You are Jewish and like considering different opinions. I'm not Jewish but enjoyed it and found the story interesting.

Don't see it if You aren't interested in the Jewish story. You are offended by other opinions about the Jewish history.

Funny, Confusing, Great acting

See it if You like Danny DeVito who is hilarious, and Mark Ruffalo, who muffed a lot of lines but is engaging as an actor.

Don't see it if You like a story that is tidily brought to a clear conclusion.

Great singing, Artitistic, Quirky

See it if You love Josh Groban and you like performance art and unique theatrical experiences. A must see just because so original.

Don't see it if You need to be pulled into the story. A little too disjoint to really feel anything about the characters. But still a must see.

Clever, Disappointing, Great staging, Slow

See it if You like shows with little kids and absolutely fantastic staging. Have patience to get to second act.

Don't see it if You expect the joy and quirkiness of Roald Dahl. The people behind us fell asleep during the first act. The second act was fantastic.

Entertaining, Delightful, Great acting, Funny

See it if You Love a good story, family friendly and best death scene ever! Tears at the end kind of uplifting show.

Don't see it if You don't like kids or musicals and you want a show where you can remember the songs. One good song but lots of good singing.

Original, Great music, Intelligent, Overrated, Confusing

See it if You appreciate creative use of actors deaf and non deaf. Great music with a thought provoking story

Don't see it if You are bothered by not being able to tell who is actually singing - too much time trying to figure out where the voices were coming from

Catchy tunes, Entertaining, Fluffy, Quirky

See it if You like catchy pop tunes. This is more of a rock concert than broadway musical. Well performed and funny at times.

Don't see it if You paid a lot of money and expect a full broadway musical. Better fit for off broadway. Lots of groupies screaming and yelling
