August 11th, 2022

See it if If you like Billy Crystal, solid humor, and a nice storyline. A memorable show.

Don't see it if If you want memorable songs and good singing. That said, music and singing were fine, just not great.

July 9th, 2022

See it if If you want to see a relatively short (90 mins), funny, smart, enjoyable show that is also thought-provoking.

Don't see it if If you are anti-Semitic (however, if you are a self-hating anti-Semite, you'll enjoy the show's description of antisemites).

Waste of time, Excruciating, Disappointing, Bad acting and staging, Dated
January 9th, 2022

See it if I frankly see no reason why anyone would want to see this show. The music wasn’t clever, and the acting and singing were poor and tedious.

Overrated, Disappointing, Clever
October 15th, 2021

See it if If you like Greek mythology and Greek tragedies, you’ll enjoy the story line that follows Orpheus and Eurydice.

Don't see it if If you are more interested in solid music over acting because while the music was good, the singing was subpar at best.

Pleasant, Overrated, Disappointing, Confusing, Cliched
May 4th, 2019

See it if If you want to see a revival with pleasant music and an entertaining storyline, and if you want to see the talented Kelli O’Hara.

Don't see it if You want a thought provoking plot without holes, and top singing talent with strong choreography (save Mrs O’Hara, who is wonderful).

April 22nd, 2018

See it if Regardless of whether you are a Harry Potter fan, the plays (1&2) are amazing - and unique. The acting, storyline and staging are excellent.

Don't see it if The only reason not to see them is if you can’t commit to see both parts very close in time (we went saw both on the same day)

See it if You are looking for a unique storyline, great singing and a memorable show that demonstrates how thinking out of the box leads to success.

Disappointing, Slow, Overrated
August 13th, 2017

See it if You want to do what everyone else is doing. Theme is lying pays. Unfortunate.

Don't see it if While the topic of teen suicide is very important, the real theme here showed that it is ok to lie and be otherwise deceitful. Unfortunate.
