About:  Grew up singing along to the cast recording of "Les Misérables" and Alan Menken tunes. Now love all musicals. 90s kid who couldn't help but see "Newsies" three times on Broadway. Unpopular opinion: I preferred "Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson" to "Hamilton."

Absorbing, Delightful, Entertaining, Hilarious, Funny

See it if you enjoy really funny shows, want to laugh throughout a show, enjoy the original movie, like Santino Fontana (he's great in this)

Don't see it if didn't enjoy the original movie, want a show with a perfect score, are annoyed by shows with a "message"

Entertaining, Cliched, Fluffy, Slow, Disappointing

See it if You love the source material or are looking for a family-friendly show. The well-known songs are here, and the message is still a good one.

Don't see it if You aren't a huge Frozen fan. The new songs are lackluster, and pacing is a problem. If you see a lot of shows, this will be disappointing.

Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if you like small shows with great acting. You appreciate commentary on today's issues and how we got here. You like Richard Armitage.

Don't see it if you're looking for something new and different. You don't like plays about social issues. You can't buy Amy Ryan as a 19-year-old.

Ambitious, Edgy, Great acting, Quirky, Confusing

See it if Ben Walker is in it. He's exceptional, and I'll see anything he stars in.

Waitress (NYC)

Entertaining, Profound, Relevant, Resonant, Delightful

See it if you like Sara Bareilles music. The song style is unmistakable. Also, if you like shows that speak to a woman's real-life experience.

Don't see it if you want traditional musical-type songs. These are more pop songs. You like shows with a bigger story and large production numbers.

Delightful, Funny, Great staging, Entertaining, Refreshing

See it if you like classic shows, are a fan of the movie, are looking for a first Broadway show for you or a family member.

Don't see it if you know the movie/score and don't like it, want to see something new and different.

See it if you like Christian Borle, don't mind forgettable songs, enjoy shows with interesting sets/effects.
