Cliched, Great dancing, Great singing, Great staging, Fluffy

See it if You love Cats. I don't. That being said, this was a very well cast, well choreographed production. The set was also great.

Don't see it if You hate Cats. I pretty much stuck around for the dancing, which was wonderful, and to hear Grizabella sing "Memory."

Intense, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Absorbing

See it if You are looking for something intense, and you don't mind allegory. It doesn't exist in any one place--it is every war torn town.

Don't see it if You don't like strong images of violence/torture, or poetic, declarative scripts.

Also I think that the poetic script both helps and hurts the play. At times... Read more Read less

See it if you're human. Even if you don't like hip-hop, the writing, acting, and choreography are phenomenal, and the music is insanely beautiful.

Masterful, Slow, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if You love Shakespeare & Old Broadway and want to see them done by a master. The songs are fun enough but the Shakespeare really is excellent.

Don't see it if You expect something flashy. It's just a Broadway legend on stage, accompanied by a pianist, singing and reciting Shakespeare.

Intimate, Romantic, Delightful, Clever, Absorbing

See it if You like intimate shows ("The Last Five Years" meets "Jane Eyre"). Both of the characters are endearing and Megan's voice is beautiful.

Don't see it if You like flashy musicals. There's no dancing, and the show can feel like one long song. It's also told through narrative, but it's very good

Slow, Intense, Great acting, Great staging, Absorbing

See it if you like period pieces and would like to see some of the best staging ever. The actors are all excellent whenever they do act.

Don't see it if you need something faster paced. The show is very slow and far too long. Again, the actors are great, but there are so many empty spaces.

Raunchy, Great acting, Hilarious, Clever, Entertaining

See it if you like shows with crude humor but good life lessons. The cast is very talented, and the music is just as great as it was when it debuted.

Don't see it if You are easily offended, and you don't like puppets.

Great staging, Funny, Entertaining, Enchanting, Delightful

See it if You want to see a classic. Beautiful performances by Kelli O'Hara, Ruthie Ann Miles, Ashley Park, Conrad Ricamora, and new king Hoon Lee.

Don't see it if You want something new. This show definitely isn't new, but that doesn't mean it isn't excellent. Endearing characters and great music.

Indulgent, Great acting, Hilarious

See it if You love Monty Python, which it copies very well. The show is uproarious and the characters memorable (Borle's Prince is unforgettable).

Don't see it if You don't like that kind of humor, which, to be fair, many people don't.

Hilarious, Great acting, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You are a Broadway and/or Shakespeare fan (there are a lot of references). Even if you don't get the references, however, the show is great.

Don't see it if You would like to maintain the idea that Shakespeare is a good guy.

Entertaining, Edgy, Great staging, Great singing, Absorbing

See it if You want to have a great time. This show is anything but boring. It was cool to see an interactive show on this scale, and the cast is great

Don't see it if You don't like strobe lights or loud music.

Also Josh Groban is fantastic in this.

Good choreography, Disappointing, Banal

See it if You love Peter Pan and want the whole story.

Don't see it if You like great music/great shows. It was honestly quite boring. There were a few good dance numbers, though, and I liked the ending.

Quirky, Great singing, Enchanting, Delightful, Absorbing

See it if You like quirky, whimsical shows. This show managed to be sweet and funny without being over the top.

Don't see it if You're looking for something serious. If you didn't like the movie, don't let that stop you! I didn't, and I loved this musical.

Also Phillipa Soo is wonderful, as is Adam Chanler-Berat. This is one of th... Read more Read less

Intelligent, Great acting, Entertaining, Clever, Absorbing

See it if You want a moving show about identity. It's been done before, but that doesn't mean this rendition isn't both hilarious and heart-wrenching.

Don't see it if Sex and cheating make you uncomfortable. If not, I highly recommend. The characters are relatable, funny, and poignant.

Intelligent, Great writing, Great acting, Edgy, Absorbing

See it if You like game-changing productions. This show is excellent. Groff, Michele, and the entire cast shine, as do the music, lyrics, and story.

Don't see it if You don't like current musicals or alt music; you prefer classical musicals or big dance numbers.

Disappointing, Raunchy, Hilarious, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you like comedy? I'm hesitant to say that because I like comedy and was disappointed. I laughed hysterically, but the jokes were overdone.

Don't see it if You like to think. Once again, it was hilarious, but it's handed to a drunk audience on a silver platter. I prefer Rotten! or Gent's Guide.

Delightful, Must see, Hilarious, Great acting, Clever

See it if you like good comedy. It was downright hilarious but never distasteful. The whole cast is great, but J. Mays, with 8 roles, is incredible.

Don't see it if there really isn't a reason. It closes in January, and if you rush (be at the box office by 10 am on the day of) you'll be front row for $42
