Great acting, Funny, Clever, Cliched, Quirky

See it if you enjoy family dramas and british culture. Totally enjoyable, but nothing new.

Don't see it if mother/daughter conflict makes you uncomfortable. You're looking for the next big thing. You want an easily identified, likable protagonist.

Exquisite, Indulgent, Slow, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if you love production design and want to see a beautiful show. It's still early in previews, hopefully everything else will come together.

Don't see it if you like being able to follow what's happening on stage. Might have been some dropped lines, but things got confusing several times.

Delightful, Funny, Quirky, Great singing, Dated

See it if you like Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, if you have an interest in the history of pop music and the music industry in general.

Don't see it if you're looking for something new and ground breaking. It's a good show, but it it has been around for a while and feels like it.

Great staging, Absorbing, Enchanting, Delightful, Ambitious

See it if you're interested in Welsh culture, small town politics, family dramas, enjoy abstract movement and song, and seeing actors play many parts.

Don't see it if you like everything to be quick and clear. It's beautiful, but you have to use your imagination and some of the transitions drag.

Confusing, Intense, Entertaining, Disappointing, Ambitious

See it if You really love Shakespeare and want to see one of his rarely done plays & don't mind sitting through bits that probably should've been cut.

Don't see it if you don't like stage violence (convincingly done or not), long shows, unnecessary plotlines, or just Shakespeare in general.

Great singing, Delightful, Entertaining, Quirky, Funny

See it if you love Carole King, 60s hit music, or music history in general, (and appreciate impressive quick changes).

Don't see it if you don't enjoy music from the 60s, you don't like when actors directly address the audience.

See it if you enjoy political dramas & documentaries, find the Israel-Palestine conflict interesting & can find empathy for both sides

Don't see it if you don't like when characters break the 4th wall for narration and exposition, you think humor can't be appropriate in a serious moment.

Indulgent, Great acting, Confusing, Thought-provoking, Original

See it if you have any interest in cognitive studies and can follow multiple story lines with the actors each playing several different characters.

Don't see it if you want to see something conclusive and concise.

Great staging, Epic, Entertaining, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if you love Shakespeare, really good acting, and cool design. And if you can accept that not every moment is brilliant.

Don't see it if you dislike Falstaff, or don't like sitting through a few boring bits in order to see some really good stuff.

Thought-provoking, Riveting, Ambitious, Edgy, Dizzying

See it if you like to see the how far the boundaries of theatre can be pushed or if you want an immersive sensory experience that makes you think.

Don't see it if you are easily overwhelmed by sensory input or you want to see a traditional show.

Dated, Fluffy, Great singing, Entertaining, Enchanting

See it if you love old fashioned musicals, the songs are classics and you'll know several. The dancing is delightful and the design is immaculate.

Don't see it if you want something particularly thought provoking, don't like old musicals, or if you get christmas songs stuck in your too head easily.

Great writing, Delightful, Absorbing, Funny, Clever

See it if you love musical theatre or Shakespeare and can poke fun at it. (So many references!) It has a huge flashy dance numbers and is charming.

Don't see it if It will probably make fun of your favorite show. It slows down after intermission and the jokes get worn out a bit.

Banal, Indulgent, Fluffy, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if you enjoy watching family dramas & good character actors. (There were technical issues that made it hard to watch, but will get fixed.)

Don't see it if you don't like unnecessary drama and angst and plot twists with no real function beyond extending the length of the play.

Great singing, Relevant, Great acting, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if you love seeing actors doing what they do best, you loved the book, you have an interest in this segment of black history.

Don't see it if the text of the musical itself is more important to you than the performances. (it isn't a perfect show but the performances are phenomenal)

Relevant, Great acting, Disappointing, Dated, Ambitious

See it if you can still enjoy excellent actors even if the material and concept don't support them.

Don't see it if you want the feminist ideals inherent in an all female production to actually find a foot hold and make sense.

Clever, Ambitious, Indulgent, Great staging, Entertaining

See it if you love Shakespeare, enjoy abstract artistic interpretations of violence, appreciate humor in a tragic show, love good supporting actors

Don't see it if you can't sit through 90 minutes of Shakespeare with no intermission and minimal AC, you want the leads to be the strongest part of the show

See it if you like Shakespeare, well placed song additions sung beautifully, watching skilled actors having a blast on stage and looking good doing it

Don't see it if you don't like to be too close to the actors, you don't approve of adding contemporary music to a Shakespeare play.

Delightful, Intelligent, Resonant, Hilarious, Clever

See it if You like contemporary plays about parent-child relationships, dark, kinda irreverent humor. It's sweet, sad and a little raunchy all at once

Don't see it if You think a play involving cancer, and all that brings with it, shouldn't be humorous. You like your comedies and your dramas to be separate
