See it if You're a fan of Michael Friedman. Some of the music is exquisite.
Don't see it if You have a hard time understanding multiple plots. I'm still a little lost.
See it if You like classic 90's songs reimagined. You enjoyed Legally Blonde, Mean Girls, etc. You love the movie - it's basically a carbon copy.
Don't see it if You're looking for an original musical. There's not much originality here.
See it if You're ok not understanding the characters you're watching or who they are. The final "scenes" are what I wish the whole show was like.
Don't see it if You're expecting anything on par with Then She Fell, Sleep No More etc. The characters are ill-developed and the sound of the train is LOUD.
See it if You like musical revues without any kind of plot.
Don't see it if You want an actual plot. Also some of the songs are incredibly sexist.

See it if You enjoy profound performances (Lauren Ridloff), even if the material is a bit dated.
Don't see it if You get distracted trying to read and watch shows at the same time. But really, it's worth a visit.
See it if You're a fan of loud, violent, in-your-face shows. The performances (especially Jonno Davies) are great, and the music is very fitting.
Don't see it if You don't like depictions of rape and torture. Or mostly naked men. The droog's fictional language can also be very difficult to understand.

See it if You want to see a performer pour his whole self into a performance. You enjoy the music of Pasek & Paul.
