See it if great story, great songs, the design is remarkable. got first row student tix and it was one of the best shows I've ever seen

Don't see it if it covers A LOT of people, so some characters felt under-explored to me

See it if you wish to see more Iranian representation, if you want to see a intimate story about friendship in political turmoil

Don't see it if you don’t like time jumps (location switching was confusing), if you expect intense story, after seeing English i was disappointed

See it if you like sport drama or want to see queer people in a conventionally toxic masculinity place, if you need JTF who has perfect comedic timing

Don't see it if you don’t want to see any nudity onstage, if you want a tight intense narrative

See it if you want to see a story, as Paula Vogel put it, told from Lolita’s perspective. The original cast gives life to the script.

Don't see it if you need trigger warning on sexual abuse, pedophilia, and incest, or if you don’t like non linear narrative

See it if you want to discuss white supremacy as a fatal mechanism. great choreography and great set design

Don't see it if you don’t like non linear narrative; if you don’t like plays that are too lecture-y

See it if you’re interested in shows that depict strong relationships with ups and downs. each two characters have such a prominent and unique dymanic

Don't see it if you don’t like magic-realism or any supernatural element. also sometimes the show was a bit too slow.

See it if you’re tired of western gaze on stage and want a fresh look at the anglo-saxonized fixation and xenophobia

Don't see it if You’re tired of white audacity. How ironic that the white audience laughs at characters’ english mistakes when the show is about wester gaze

See it if you’re interested in Chinese American history & want to revoke white gaze

Don't see it if you like happy musicals; if you hate time jumps; if you’re neck-deep in your prejudices against Asian/Chinese Americans, don’t bother lol

See it if You want ASIAN REPRESENTATION! Conrad is a perfect Seymour. And the puppetry itself is worth the price. Also some cute front row interaction

Don't see it if You don’t like the music style or want some deep discussion

See it if You want to a piece of recent history with reflections on the present

Don't see it if You’re over 5’8. The seats were tiny. My man spreading seat neighbor’s arm took over a fourth of my space so i had an arrhythmia episode:)

See it if you’re into movement-based theatre. The topic is relevant and the story is beautiful structured non-linearly.

Don't see it if you don’t like experimental work. Or if you expect a neat incorporation of quantum theory. The quantum part almost felt like a clickbait

See it if you want a crazy night or you have some non-theatre friends in town who want some sort of broadway experience

See it if you're drawn to a great story as well as great singing. The cast have the best voice in this season.

Don't see it if you prefer clear staging. This production made some interesting choices but I'm not a fan of those.

See it if you like Katrina Lenk. She's my bobbie. I saw it with Patti's understudy and she offered some new lights. The design is masterful too

Don't see it if you think marriage is invalid in a 21st century New York. they did a lot of heavylifting. Also, I have ace/aro friends hate the show's msg

See it if you are an Anna Deavere Smith fan. It’s nice to see her work on stage again and the production made some interesting changes.

Don't see it if you are an Anna Deavere Smith fan and would love to stick to the OG. She set the bar too high.

See it if you want a timeless piece, 60 years late but still on time. LaChanze shines on stage and the show really comes live with her.

Don't see it if you need something light.

See it if you appreciate theatre as an art form. The craft is done to perfection. The actors are national treasure level

Don't see it if you want a thought-provoking story. the story didn’t matter to me, it could be Goldman sach’s story as long as the staging the acting stays.

Don't see it if you want real tension on stage. It was somehow too flat for me.

See it if you want some basic entertainment with cheap humor or you love the movie

Don't see it if you want a accurate and respectful representation of gender minority and gay men. Plus, none of the songs are earned in the plot

See it if you want to experience something grandiose. Aaron Tveit nailed Roxanne and I would pay to hear that song only

Don't see it if you need basic logic. The story doesn’t make sense. A French sexworker with tuberculosis singing you light me up like 4th of July? No thanks

See it if you need some good songs in your life. Vicki Clark is a gem and the entire cast matches her beautiful acting.

Don't see it if you want a lovable story. I do find some of the plot a bit of a reach. Vicki’s character is too sweet to the jerks and I was irritated

Don't see it if you want something safe? The performance I went to spent half an hour talking about a boring white woman who’s moving to Texas

See it if you enjoy crazy staging? Two or three of the songs are good

Don't see it if you hate slow blocking, terrible use of design elements, or boring story. I passed out for 20 minutes even though I got 9 hours of sleep
