Thoughtful, Intriguing, Engrossing, Great acting

See it if you like to deduce past events that inform current action and relationships as they unfold; enjoy intimate theater; focus on family drama

Don't see it if require things be laid out cleanly; roll your eyes at ghosts; are annoyed by actions happening on different parts of stage simultaneously

Insincere, Cliched

See it if you don't mind characters who don't ring true but rather buy into cuteness;

Don't see it if you expect something more than an exercise abut a simplistic premise

Purposeless, Bad acting, Insipid, Cliched

See it if the mother of all thunderstorms crashed down while you're standing in front of the theater and you want a dry place - the seats were nice.

Don't see it if you like entertainment, you like a story, you don't think something is funny just because it's cheesy, loud, and mean-spirited.

Fluffy, Great acting, Great staging, Entertaining, Funny

See it if broad comedy with fine performances and songs; all froth but very good at that

Don't see it if you want to see a show with a message or you prefer more subtle humor.

Slow, Stylized

See it if small, intimate theatre setting good for this highly stylized production

Don't see it if overflowing with long soliloquies that repeatedly hammer a simplistic theme

Thought-provoking, Absorbing, Resonant, Great acting

Provocative, Lively, Character driven, Well paced, Absorbing

See it if you appreciate subjectivity in how teens perceive themselves and others and the and immediacy of those years. And juxtaposed timelines.

Don't see it if you prefer straight forward, chronological storytelling (my companion complained of being confused). He also thought it cliched - I didn't

Thin, Degrading, Uninspired, Contrived, Overrated

See it if you've haven't experienced the Delcorte Theatre before or you don't mind a heavy handed Shakespeare play with little wit and much misogyny.

Don't see it if the quality of a play is more important than the hype of an all female cast which does nothing to mitigate the degradation of people.

Absorbing, Great acting, Resonant, Great staging, Clever

See it if great music, set, and effects on large stage in outdoor setting. Active and compelling production with fine acting; never a dull moment.

Don't see it if you don't like Shakespeare dramas and/or outdoor productions in public parks. Otherwise, go.

Great singing, Overrated, Vignettes, Cute, Fluffy

See it if you like a series of vignettes, sung or otherwise, to portray characters. Fun to watch kids perform.

Corny, Undeveloped, Disappointing

See it if you think loud and active equals funny; enjoyed baudy musical numbers; don't care much of coherence

Don't see it if you get put off by shock value for its sake alone

Thought-provoking, Insightful

See it if you want to hear the perspectives of person at different times in his life following an incident that greatly affected him

Don't see it if you want a drama with dialogue and other characters to get alternative POVs; you don't enjoy being read to

Great performances, Entertaining, Great setting, Relevant, Absorbing

See it if Outdoor theatre in park is superb. Great sense of community, maybe like how Delacorte once was. Powerful performances in nicely set drama.

Don't see it if you're preference is for indoor, with conventional staging.

Obvious theme, Heartfelt, Apt theatre space, Great acting

Ambitious, Entertaining, Enjoyable

See it if enjoy outdoor performance that requires some compromise but captures the gist of the story and manages some flourish.

Don't see it if outdoor performance in a busy midtown park is too distracting, especially when sound system is inadequate.

Ambitious, Overlong, Historical, Great staging, Entertaining

See it if like to see literature acted out. As far as I know, it was true to Dumas's story. Good staging (especially the action sequences).

Don't see it if you're hard of hearing (no mikes and some ambient noise) and get uncomfortable sitting on stone steps for a long time (even with cushions).

Small, Cliched, Inconsistent, Quirky, Funny moments

See it if you like small theater with limited scope that pokes fun at the theatre business. And like a bit of outrageous.

Don't see it if Put off by on-stage nudity and much sexual reference. Or if fully developed characters are essential to you.

Enthusiastic, Great singing, Entertaining, Vibrant, Cliched

See it if enjoy great singing, especially as ensemble. Joyous performances with high energy and feeling of sincere pleasure in performing.

Don't see it if you like shows with clear sense of plot rather than vignettes. Many cliches though that doesn't invalidate the feelings behind them.
