See it if you have an undying love for this show or Shakespeare in general, though the production lacked clear focus or intent.
Don't see it if You want a cohesive Shakespeare production that is entertaining from start to finish. There's much better cases of that out there.
See it if you have a love or appreciation for the epic story of Henry VIII or British history.
Don't see it if you don't want something dense & long (yet amazing). Also don't see both parts in one day. 6 hours of British theatre is too much for anyone

Don't see it if you love "The Pillowman". It doesn't do the text justice, and completely misses the mark on it being a "dark comedy".
See it if you are a fan of "Much Ado About Nothing" and can appreciate the Beatles-esq 60s revamp.
Don't see it if you don't like loud 60s styled music (there's lots of that, some of which seems too much). The whole thing is an explosion of counterculture

Don't see it if you want something fun, fast moving, and easy.

Don't see it if you don't want flashy commercial theatre.
