Intense, Funny, Clever, Refreshing, Great writing

See it if You like small cast shows about family drama, great writing with lots of funny, clever moments about serious topics.

Don't see it if You want something splashy or are looking for intricate sets. You don't want to see a show that deals with cancer and hospitals.

Quirky, Funny, Great acting, Enchanting, Clever

See it if You like HP+, you like small theatres, you'll get HP inside jokes, you don't need super flashy effects, you're a Hufflepuff.

Don't see it if You're strict about the HP canon, you don't like actors playing multiple characters, you want super spectacle/high budget magic.

Enchanting, Entertaining, Delightful, Great staging, Great singing

See it if You like musicals, pop songs, a rotating cast of TV stars, baking, small town life, great singing, and excellent staging/choreography.

Don't see it if You want totally even levels of singing ability, you prefer classical musical theatre-style songs or non-pop music. Trigger warning: DV.

Absorbing, Great staging, Intense, Great acting

See it if You love Carousel, old NYC/Coney Island stories, ruminations on life, death, good, and bad, or just love strong casts with great chemistry.

Don't see it if You're looking for something very original. I don't know Liliom, but Jericho is *incredibly* similar to Carousel - word for word in places.
