See it if you’ve studied the book in school and want to see a stage adaptation. You are interested in historical and present day racial injustice.

Don't see it if You’re a racist. Have a bad view. The sight lines aren’t great in this theatre.

See it if you want to see a classic play that’s been running forever. shows like this are a must see for a theatre enthusiast.

Don't see it if you have limited time in London. It is very dated and the jump scares are poor. Far better theatre on offer.

See it if you’re not a fan of the original music and want a night out akin to a hen do or strip club

Don't see it if you have high expectations for the film on stage. The set is stunning. The writing and the acting of the original cast was really poor.
