See it if You want to watch a very poorly scripted show that was stupid and not the least bit funny. Luckily today is the last show.

See it if you're young (young at heart doesn't count here) as it has a sci-fi overtone like the movies and TV shows of the day for teen audiences.

Also Very cleverly written with laugh out loud jokes. A "good time" show.
See it if you've seen it long ago, know the story, or have never seen it - doesn't matter as this production is wonderful!

See it if You know Jimmy Buffet and his music because that's the best part of the show. The singing and dancing was fun.

Don't see it if you expect a lively production. It was slow, slow, slow. And the teenage son spoke quietly with his head down and his chin in his shirt.
