Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Funny, Cliched

See it if You want something fun for the whole family. The kids are impressive and play their own instruments!

Don't see it if You get annoyed at very PC themes and language. The characters are very cliche.

Clever, Entertaining, Fluffy, Overrated, Great staging

See it if You are curious about the hype, you like the Wizard of Oz and want to see a good fan fiction take on it, you want fun for the whole family.

Don't see it if You've heard amazing things about it and want to see what all the fuss is about. I don't think it lived up to the hype, but it was fun.

Cliched, Disappointing, Fluffy, Romantic, Raunchy

See it if You're a fan of folksy music and a diehard fan of the movie (it's pretty similar). It was nice seeing Katherine McPhee live.

Don't see it if You like your musicals to have songs that sound distinct from each other. I think there was just one long song used throughout the play.

Ambitious, Dated, Fluffy, Romantic, Slow

See it if You're a hopeless romantic and you're not tired of the songs. The songs are beautiful if you have an open mind!

Don't see it if You don't like overly formal, traditional love stories, or you're tired of the songs!

Clever, Great acting, Hilarious, Masterful, Must see

See it if You love to laugh and appreciate good theater.

Don't see it if You don't pay attention to what's on stage -- the play moves fast and it's funnier when you're alert.

Cliched, Entertaining, Funny, Refreshing, Great singing

See it if You like Motown songs, you like 50's era nostalgia, or you're looking for a traditional musical that doesn't seem that old.

Don't see it if You don't like Motown songs or the 50's era. It's all about that very specific era, and the story is pretty superficial so that's it.

Enchanting, Entertaining, Great writing, Intelligent, Refreshing

See it if You want to have fun, get some music history, and hear evergreen, classic songs.

Don't see it if You don't like pop music, though you don't have to be a Carole King fan to love this musical. Her story on its own is fascinating.

Ambitious, Cliched, Disappointing, Great acting, Indulgent

See it if You're a Denzel Washington or David Morse fan. It's an actors' play, so you get to see them a lot.

Don't see it if You can't withstand 3+ three hours of melodrama. The plot is pretty thin. Yes, there's a surprise at the end, but not enough for 3+ hrs

Enchanting, Entertaining, Dated, Funny, Great acting

See it if You're a Bernadette Peters fan -- she's great. Cast is great too but of course she's the star.

Don't see it if You want a modern musical. The storyline is dated. The songs are very traditional.
