See it if If you enjoy shows that cover family dynamics this is an original take on that. The acting is first rate and the writing is very funny.
Don't see it if If you're looking for action in your show, this isn't the one. This is character/dialogue driven.

Don't see it if You aren't interested in hearing music not specifically written for the stage. You don't like loud, funky, shows with a bit of sappiness.

Don't see it if If you are NOT a fan of the cartoon you will not enjoy the show.
See it if You loved the movie. You like Andy Karl and/or Samantha Barks.

Don't see it if You don't dig The Wizard of Oz or fantasy in general or if green isn't your color.

See it if It's Fiddler on the Roof...if you know the story, you will love this. Even in Yiddish (maybe especially because it's in Yiddish).

Don't see it if Even with Jake Gyllenhaal in it, I really wouldn't suggest this show to anyone.

Don't see it if You are a purist for the original book and/or film and don't want to see ANYTHING about it changed or amended.
See it if You're into King Kong. It stays very close to the original story. The singing is wonderful as well and, it's worth it just to see Kong.
Don't see it if You aren’t impressed with 20 foot gorillas, you’re looking for songs that will stick with you when the show is over.
See it if If you enjoy the Go Go's music and humorous period pieces with a lot of LGBTQ acceptance thrown in this show is for you.
Don't see it if If you don’t like jukebox musicals, don’t like the Go Go’s or 80s music, don’t like LGBTQ themes…this show is not for you.

Don't see it if This show seems geared toward teenagers. Which, hey, they deserve entertainment too, but as an adult didn't find anything compelling in it.
See it if You enjoy magic. You aren't put off by a little audience participation. You're okay seeing a show without REALLY knowing what it's about.

Don't see it if If you don't like jukebox musicals or if you prefer a show with a bit of substance to the plot, you won't enjoy this.
See it if The singing alone makes this worthwhile. But the choreography is just as fantastic. Amar Ramasar as Jigger steals the show with his moves.
Don't see it if The plot is problematic and many people will have a problem setting aside the domestic abuse angle.
See it if The ensemble, especially Denzel Washington and David Morse make this a must-see. If you’re a Eugene O’Neill fan, you'll love it.
Don't see it if If you dislike Eugene O'Neill's plays, stay away. It's almost four hours long and is dark and depressing.
