Great acting, Great staging, Raunchy, Intense

See it if You love the play and are previously familiar with the script. The text received a refreshing facelift and was very impactful.

Don't see it if You don't like small theaters and small black box performance spaces. The house is small and located on a fourth floor walkup.

Great for families, Cute, Great music, Funny, Great dance

See it if You're going with children or loved the movie. Perfect family show.

Don't see it if It's similar to American in Paris where there's a long dance sequence to explain a plot line and that technique isn't for everyone.

Cliched, Disappointing, Romantic, Slow, Great singing

See it if You enjoyed "Bridges of Madison County" and love "love songs." The plot is slow but the female lead is wonderful.
