Absorbing, Great singing, Great acting, Resonant, Intense

See it if you appreciate Dylan's music and you're okay with non-traditional storytelling and like beautiful singing.

Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Hilarious, Quirky

See it if You're a fan of the movie, Tina Fey's writing, and big, fun, ensemble musical comedies. Cast does a good job.

Don't see it if You don't like the movie. It's fluffy and the music's not great. The joy comes from the musical amplification of a classic comedy.

Delightful, Entertaining, Fun, Buoyant, Clever

See it if You like fun and playful musicals, the music of the Go-gos, and clever retooling of classical works. This is a fun show.

Absorbing, Great acting, Slow, Thought-provoking, Boring

See it if you want to see three of our greatest actresses at work. Glenda Jackson is a force.

Don't see it if You want a more action-driven story line. This play is mostly reflection.

Delightful, Great singing, Fluffy, Fun, Entertaining

See it if you like the music of Carole King, 60s culture and history, and learning about how music is made.

Don't see it if you like deeper, more though-provoking or challenging work. This is essentially a juke box musical with a more interesting, true story.

Thought-provoking, Great acting, Intelligent, Indulgent, Entertaining

See it if You want to leave the theater with questions. This show made me question my own behavior and assumptions.

Don't see it if You're disinterested in white liberal guilt or watching an all-white cast.

Refreshing, Entertaining, Enchanting, Delightful, Intelligent

See it if You like smaller, intimate stories told with heart. Lovely and touching.

Don't see it if It’s a small show about a small story in a small town. If you like bigger musicals with showstopping numbers, this isn’t for you.
