Delightful, Funny, Masterful, Intelligent, Enchanting

See it if You enjoy clowning or want to witness master clowns. You're looking for something to make you smile for a while.

Don't see it if You are looking for something serious. It is very thoughtful, though... just not serious.

Great acting, Great writing, Overrated, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if you want to see fantastic acting and a tight show mostly about one topic: relative restraints and benefits of marriage.

Aladdin (Broadway)
Midtown W
Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Great staging, Enchanting

See it if you want to see a family-friendly, big production. IMO, this was MUCH better than the Lion King. It didn't feel like a rip off of the movie.
