See it if You want a vacation! I had such a good time at this show (surprisingly!)

Don't see it if you are not comfortable with non-traditional seating. I had to twist the entire time to see the action and actors were in my face.
See it if you like a little whimsy in a musical! Sara Bareilles' music is so powerful and the directing is fantastical
Don't see it if you are sensitive to foul language and raunchy sex scenes.
See it if you are familiar with musical theater history. You'll definitely learn some new things and rekindle your love for old things.

See it if you are or are close to a mother, sister, aunt, or grandmother.
Don't see it if you are impatient! The show moves SO SLOWLY and there is just not that much plot.

Don't see it if you don't like docu-drama style, ensemble shows. This evoked Laramie Project
See it if you want a fun evening of great performances and clever acting. Fun theatre references, too!
Don't see it if you are bringing children (nudity) or if you prefer realism to the concept play. The plot is pretty confusing and there is no fourth wall
See it if you can get tickets in the back. The performers play to the back of the house where people seemed to enjoy it most
Don't see it if you like Noel Coward - the script is divine and some of the actors pull their weight but it did not seem to be directed with timing in mind

Don't see it if You are not interested in a white-washed, derivative, cliched narrative.

Don't see it if you don't like minimalist style. This production was very bare-bones and the acting was a bit over the top.

Don't see it if You are interested in something more socially forward. The show is about rich, white people in the south talking about business.
See it if you love Next to Normal or Ben Platt - Great singing in a living room. Platt is the only reason the show has the hype it does.
Don't see it if You are interested in more epic musicals and stories not about straight white men. The album soars on Spotify, and not always live.
