See it if You're looking for a feel good show with a happy ending where the audience is encouraged to sing along at times

Don't see it if You're looking for something deep. If it were a movie it'd probably be classified as a romcom.

Don't see it if You're looking for a flashy show. It's tiny, multiple characters are played by more than 1 person, 1 character is played by a puppet.

See it if You're looking for a great laugh, this was the funniest show I've ever seen.
