See it if you will enjoy an original take on the Salem Witch Trials as seen through a contemporary lens. Deirdre O'Connell is fabulous as always.

Don't see it if you don't like clever takes on historical events or don't care about the day-to-day problems many Americans are facing.

See it if you're a Sondheim and/or Patti Lupone fan. It was very entertaining but I don't think the gender reversal of the lead character added much.
