Clever, Enchanting, Great singing, Intelligent

See it if you want to see a folk music telling of buzz aldrin by clever young actors/musicians

Don't see it if want a conventional story arc

Cliched, Quirky, Banal

See it if you want a fun, cute night out to the theatre and want to see a cappella music incorporated into the musical theatre world.

Don't see it if you want to see an "artsy" piece or expect there to be a reason it is a cappella

Refreshing, Original, Must see, Enchanting, Great singing

See it if you want to see something so unique and different. The folk opera is an up and coming genre of the musical form and it is so refreshing.

Don't see it if you want a traditional musical theater show or if you strongly dislike folk music (I am ambivalent towards it and loved the music)

Don't see it if you don't like discussions of religion

Entertaining, Funny, Dated, Quirky

Don't see it if you want something substantive.

Classic, Masterful, Epic, Great singing

See it if you want a great gateway into broadway. Every theatregoer must see Les Mis at some point.

Don't see it if you've seen Les Mis before. I mean you can, its just not necessary and it's not as different as people say.

See it if You want to see something different. It's not every day you can watch puppets have sex.

Don't see it if you get offended easily.

Great acting, Great writing, Thought-provoking, Riveting, Intelligent

See it if you want to see a show that deserves its Pulitzer nod. Karam is a brilliant playwright.

Don't see it if you expect it to be earth shattering.

83
Entertaining, Funny, Original, Ambitious

See it if You want a fun night out full of riotous laughs.

Don't see it if You expect the book to be funnier than the songs. Most jokes are in the songs.

90
Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging, Refreshing, Riveting

See it if you are bored with how dramas have been staged or in other words if you want to see how a drama should be staged in an exciting manner.

Don't see it if you are looking for a philosophical play. That's not a bad thing, this play is just more about the emotions. Doing so brilliantly.

Enchanting, Absorbing, Masterful, Profound, Refreshing

See it if you want to see one of the most important avant garde companies (Complicité) perform a unique piece that would not normally be on broadway.

Don't see it if you want a normal night at the theatre or if you have issues hearing since you wear headphones the entire time.

60
Overrated, Slow, Indulgent, Fluffy, Great singing

See it if you havent. It is a right of passage to see in the theater.

Don't see it if you think it's been on broadway for so long so it must be THAT good. That's not the reason.

Intelligent, Slow, Entertaining, Great writing

See it if you want to see a new work from one of the most important playwrights writing right now

Don't see it if you dont like shows where they talk to the audience, discuss race, or if you think it will be BJJ's best

77
Smart, Thought-provoking

See it if you have any interest or have any background in psychology and related fields. It is scientifically accurate.

Don't see it if you don't like broken up shows. (the show consists of scenes that keep coming in and out)

For a previous production
Original, Resonant, Intense, Relevant, Great singing

See it if you want to see something new by an incredible contemporary writing team that has intense catharsis not often found in contemp. MT.

Don't see it if You expect a perfect show. There is much work needed, but the positives outweigh the negatives.
