Confusing, Entertaining, Ambitious, Quirky, Absorbing

See it if You like musicals that show characters in multiple ways to tell the story, and if you're familiar with the source material.

Don't see it if You're not willing to forgive some abrupt transitions, or you want to watch a show where you don't need to pay too much attention.

During previews
Cliched, Entertaining, Funny, Great staging, Quirky

See it if You're looking for a good laugh, and just want to watch something entertaining.

Don't see it if In the beginning, some of the comedy feels a little forced. It does begin to fit the mood as the show continues, however.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Great staging, Resonant, Great writing

See it if You want to see a story about people coming together and connecting despite the circumstances of their meeting.

Don't see it if You want to see a 100% happy show. It's a delicate subject matter, and they show a lot of the good, but there are still some sad parts.

83
Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Relevant, Absorbing

See it if You're a fan of the movie, you want to see a show where a woman finds the strength to follow her dreams, or you love pie.

Don't see it if You're not a fan of pie.

Refreshing, Resonant, Absorbing, Relevant, Delightful

See it if You're interested in a show with many interwoven stories. Or if you like to see music performed on stage--the musicians are excellent!

Don't see it if You have trouble understanding accents. The two women sitting next to me sometimes had trouble following what the actors said.

Ambitious, Entertaining, Immersive

See it if You want to see one of the most creative stages on Broadway and enjoy seeing actors move among and interact with the audience.

Don't see it if You have issues with strobe lights. There was one scene where the strobes were on for about a minute.

80
Delightful, Entertaining, Indulgent

See it if You're up for a good comedy

Don't see it if you think you'd get annoyed by comedic references to other shows.

76
Absorbing, Entertaining, Resonant, Great singing

See it if You want to hear all the songs you already know sung live by amazing singers.

Don't see it if You don't like the show.

Enchanting, Great acting, Intelligent, Intense, Original

See it if You want an original spin on the wizard of oz story and gorgeous music.

Don't see it if You don't want to see other characterizations of the original characters.

83
Entertaining, Great acting, Edgy, Intelligent, Original

See it if You like the music

Don't see it if There is suicide and death

85
Funny, Intelligent, Great staging, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You want to see a show with a creatively-used set that morphs into different settings, and has occasional animations projected onto it.

Don't see it if You're expecting perfection. I definitely preferred the songs in act 2.

Delightful, Entertaining, Refreshing, Great singing, Absorbing

Don't see it if You're not a fan of Carole King's music.

Clever, Great acting, Profound, Relevant, Resonant

See it if You want to see a thought-provoking show about making mistakes and rising above them.

Don't see it if Big trigger warning for suicide.

90
Ambitious, Clever, Great acting, Intense, Resonant

See it if You're interested in a character-driven story. It is a musical, but feels more like a play with songs to underscore characters' emotions.

Don't see it if You're just in it for the Bob Dylan music--the show isn't about the songs, they just help tell the story.

90
Ambitious, Clever, Confusing, Quirky, Absorbing

See it if You're in for an immersive experience. Listen to the songs beforehand, so it'll be easier to follow the different characters and timelines.

Don't see it if You don't like nonlinear stories. (Or if you're afraid of the dark--there is one scene in near-total darkness)

71
Ambitious, Overrated, Entertaining

See it if you're a fan of the original movie and want to see some truly interesting costume design.

Don't see it if you get rear mezz tickets and don't have great eyes. I was up in the very last row and had to squint a little to see what was going on.

Ambitious, Great writing, Profound

See it if You can find a ticket

Don't see it if You don't want to pay for a ticket

84
Ambitious, Clever, Intelligent, Thought-provoking

See it if You want to see four actors play multiple characters throughout the course of a show you'll be thinking about long after you leave.

Don't see it if You have trouble following multiple storylines. Actors change accents between characters but there are no costume changes.

Absorbing, Enchanting, Exquisite, Epic, Masterful

See it if The sets and costumes are beautiful and the music is gorgeous.

Don't see it if You should really see this one.
