Great acting, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You're interested in a delightful, uplifting and moving story punctuated by catchy pop-style songs. Laura Michelle Kelly was amazing.

Don't see it if You don't enjoy Peter Pan or a somewhat predictable plot-line. Or somewhat belabored Scottish accents.

Don't see it if You don't like musicals?

Romantic, Enchanting

See it if You appreciate dance as a mode of storytelling, love Gershwin, want to sink into romance. Robert Fairchild and Leanne Cope were enchanting.

Great singing, Enchanting, Delightful

See it if Delightful and fun, one of the jukebox musicals that truly works!

Don't see it if If you don't like jukebox musicals at all, or the songs of the era portrayed, maybe skip it.

Resonant, Great singing, Entertaining, Clever

See it if Lovely and affecting, it depicts the welcome of strangers amid tragedy wonderfully.

Don't see it if If you want razzle-dazzle, this isn't the show for you.

Romantic, Fluffy

See it if If you love Bryan Adams (as I do), you'll adore every guitar riff. The leads are excellent and have amazing chemistry.

Don't see it if If you have the original film memorized, the interruption of the songs may seem strange and unnecessary.

Great singing, Great acting, Enchanting

See it if Wonderful performances by Laura Benanti and Henry Haydn-Patton. I particularly adored the staging and musical arrangements.

Don't see it if If you're not a fan of the original musical, or if you are a stickler for accents...

Great writing, Great singing, Great acting, Clever, Exquisite

See it if I saw this both off-Broadway and on and it was spectacular and moving each time. An amazing depiction of teenage anxiety and parental love.

Don't see it if If you have a trigger surrounding the concept of teenage suicide (as it factors into the plot early on).

Don't see it if See it if you can! Period.

Entertaining

See it if You love the show, Glenn Close, a new staging, Andrew Llyod Weber.

Don't see it if You want razzle-dazzle rather than a psychological thriller.

86
Bouncy, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if If you want razzle-dazzle and heart-thumping dance numbers book-ending sweet (if predictable) character development.

Don't see it if You're looking for nuanced commentary on the issue of homophobia in small-town America.

88
Resonant, Intelligent, Great acting, Clever

See it if Absolutely loved the performances and chemistry of the two leads - the simultaneous signing and acting was amazing.

Don't see it if Alas, it has closed.

85
Great writing, Great acting, Funny, Clever

See it if Adored all 3 principals interacting for this one. Sparks some fun conversation about the nature of truth, although not exactly revelatory.

Don't see it if If for some reason you don't like Cherry Jones or Daniel Radcliffe or Bobby Canavale? Why are you going to Broadway, again?

Great writing, Great staging, Entertaining, Enchanting, Clever

See it if Magical! If you love Harry Potter, this is the show for you. I recommend going in without reading the play first, for maximum surprise!

Don't see it if If you haven't read Harry Potter, don't see this show.

Disappointing

See it if The puppet/puppeteers was/were amazing.

Don't see it if The music was largely uninspiring, the choreography a bit messy, the story defied attempts to expand it to incorporate a feminist bent.

83
Romantic, Great acting, Exquisite, Delightful

See it if Beautiful, calm and sweet, it is paced slowly, as though it should be sipped and taken in like a good, hot tea. The music grows on you, too.

Don't see it if If you prefer big, showy dance numbers, you won't get that here. Likewise you won't learn deep truths about the universe, but worth the time

Funny, Enchanting, Entertaining, Delightful, Clever

See it if Delightful and fun, with catchy tunes and excellent stage craft! I saw it over a decade ago, but it's pretty timeless in its wonder and joy.

Don't see it if I suppose if you don't like musicals? How sad for you.
