Refreshing, Great staging, Great singing, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if You are looking to be moved by a spectacular theatrical experience. Fun score with a folk/New Orleans-flair & thrilling direction

Don't see it if You don’t like sung-through musicals, you want something light and fluffy

Also Amber Gray, Patrick Page and Andre De Shields are really excellent.

Quirky, Fluffy, Raunchy, Funny, Absorbing

See it if You want a show that has incredible production value, with impressive lighting, sets, staging & stage magic. Also, Leslie Kritzer is a star.

Don't see it if You need a show to have memorable songs. Also, it's looong and drags a bit. Some of the jokes are more corny than cutting.

Edgy, Thought-provoking, Dizzying, Great singing, Confusing

See it if You enjoy riveting Scottish stories, set to an indie-folk soundtrack. You enjoy intimate evenings of theatre.

Don't see it if You need a perfectly clear piece - the story gets lost in itself and is a bit confusing.

Alice By Heart

Great singing, Great score, Great staging, Confusing, Work in progress

See it if You love Spring Awakening and the music of Sheik/Sater. You want to see a beloved fairytale reimagined.

Don't see it if You are looking for a perfected piece - the book is confusing and overcomplicated. It’s worth seeing for the music and staging alone.

See it if You love all things Cher, you're in it for the razzle dazzle & costumes, you're ready to be wowed by Stephanie J. Block

Don't see it if You look for any depth or quality in book or structure. The script was tough stuff.

See it if You love bluegrass music and beautiful harmonies. You enjoy musician-actors. You're looking for something small and intimate.

Don't see it if This is a work in progress, so don't expect to see a flawless piece. It's almost there, it just needs to fine-tune its POV.

87
Delightful, Great singing, Great staging, Refreshing

See it if You love the music from Songs for a New World, and have always dreamed to see it onstage. This is a truly excellent rendition.

Don't see it if You need a very clear and cohesive plot; this isn't a "musical" as much as it is a series of songs following a theme.

Great staging, Enchanting, Riveting, Fluffy, Magical

See it if You want to see one of the most beautifully and magically staged shows ever on Broadway. Seriously.

Don't see it if You can't look beyond the fact the script is fluffy fan-fic. You can't sit through two plays.

Confusing, Great staging, Great singing, Dated

See it if You know the fascinating history of The Cradle Will Rock and want to see a top-notch production of this interesting piece of theatre history

Crude, Great acting, Funny, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if You love Titus Andronicus and want to see the zany places it goes next, you want to see Julie White shine.
