See it if You want to experience a thought-provoking, innovative masterpiece. It's an intellectual, hilarious fever dream of a show.

Don't see it if You're offended by profanity, LGBTQIA+ themes, discussions around race. This isn't a family-friendly Disney blockbuster.

See it if You love Funny Girl. You enjoy a classic, old-school Broadway musical with all the bells and whistles. You're a Beanie stan.

Don't see it if You like something a bit more challenging or innovative. You're expecting Babs—Beanie is delightful, but lacking Babs' singing chops.

See it if You are interested in the intersection of race/sexuality/baseball. You're looking for a thought-provoking evening with a few big-name stars.

See it if You want to see Debra Messing take on a meaty role. You love a coming-of-age story with a dose of family drama and a few laughs sprinkled in

Don't see it if You're expecting a flashy musical. You want to laugh till you cry, or bawl your eyes out—this is somewhere in the middle.

Also It's nothing groundbreaking, but still a moderately moving and delight... Read more Read less

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.

See it if You are looking for a production that truly gets to the core of what Oklahoma is about. A groundbreaking show with incredible performances.

Don't see it if You are looking for a typical revival. The music, staging and character development are reimagined and might disappoint a R&H purist.

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.

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

Don't see it if You are looking for a modern, updated piece - it feels dated and, removed from its history, is 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.

Don't see it if This both went over my head and was too childish for me at the same time - don't see it if you get distracted easily or dislike crude humor.

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 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.
