Masterful, Profound, Riveting, Resonant, Great acting

See it if you want a fresh view of an iconic story, beautifully acted and staged. A dark but important piece of theater.

Don't see it if you are afraid of confronting our country's long history of institutionalized racism.

Exquisite, Great acting, Resonant, Romantic

See it if you'd enjoy an exquisite slip of a musical as beautifully acted as it is sung.

Don't see it if you need a lot of flash and action in your Broadway musical.

Also Katrina Lenk is stunning. Her performance is not to be missed. I wonde... Read more Read less

Dated, Quirky, Slow

See it if you're willing to drop Bway ticket money on a show that is stuck in its 80s origins. You want to see Mamie Parris wail--she's a standout.

Don't see it if you don't appreciate slavish recreations of 80s spectaculars.

Delightful, Entertaining, Dated, Indulgent

See it if you want to see Kevin Kline give a master class in comedic acting alongside some other stage greats.

Don't see it if you expect a modern TV star's abilities to carry her convincingly through a difficult high comedy. Cobie Smulders is not up to this, sadly.

Delightful, Entertaining, Insipid

See it if you appreciate non-cloying child performers with serious musical chops. You have a music loving kid in your life-- my 4 yr old loved it!

Don't see it if you expect anything groundbreaking. It's fun, but doesn't particularly improve on the movie, and ALW's score is merely fine.

Entertaining, Refreshing, Overrated

See it if You're looking for a big-hearted show with strong performances.

Don't see it if You expect a fresh score. I was looking forward to this because of Cyndi Lauper's involvement but much of it felt derivative.

Hilarious, Quirky, Entertaining, Great singing, Great acting

See it if you can get on board with occasionally juvenile humor in the name of having a great time. Great music with many classical musical homages.

Don't see it if You're easily offended

Also The raunchy humor ultimately redeems itself with the show's heartfelt ... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Intelligent, Disappointing

See it if you’d like to see another well written snapshot of America’s financial excess and don’t mind awkward staging.

Don't see it if You’re expecting new ground to be broken. Performances were uneven, which was was disappointing from this cast.

Great acting, Great singing, Dated, Disappointing

See it if you want to see two legendary leading ladies giving exceptional performances (though Patti's accent is often challenging).

Don't see it if you like your diva feuds campy.

Also This show seemed to be going toward a throwback chorus musical feel in... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Exquisite, Thought-provoking

See it if you appreciate Sondheim's unique voice and skill and want to see an exceptional Annaleigh Ashford and surprisingly good Jake G.

Don't see it if you want to deeply connect to a show's characters and not just deeply admire its craft.
