See it if Classic with a twist. In rhyme but with exceptional translation/adaptation with amazing direction making totally understandable & modern.
Don't see it if you don't like farce or simple (though tasteful) sets
See it if you must see all Wilson's plays. Really great acting with one grating exception.
Don't see it if you want to a see Fences quality work. It is nowhere near. Has 3 scenes of that caliber but the rest is banal, fluffy and cliched.
See it if you are a fan of Graff's. There is some mystery and it has some funny vignettes. It's cute.
Don't see it if writing meanders aimlessly in the first act to have some cute ex-machina sense made out of it at the very end. Acting is severely uneven.
See it if It's a magic show albeit one done with great pizzaz and a fast pace that never gets boring. Surprisingly entertaining.
Don't see it if You want real theater. This is entertainment.
See it if you must see every single Cirque Du Soleil show.
Don't see it if just don't. This is a real mess. Neither a real, good or skillful Cirque, nor a Broadway show. Writing is embarrassingly cliched & dated.
See it if you go into it prepared for a comedy. Funny, creative and clever while staying within the recognizable story. Some great comedic performers
Don't see it if you want a classic Othello. This is spoofy but creative. You don't care for (light) rap. You'd like a few more quotes from the original.
See it if you are a completionist and must see all 3 parts of this trilogy. Well acted. You relate to severely passionless family interactions.
Don't see it if it feels myopic & aimless. Characters go through the same life transition at the same time in the same way. Not microcosm but a microscope.
See it if amazing story/storytelling. Tim Burton(esque) Whimsical, dark and full of heart. Fantastic talent. Great music. Surprisingly great. Must see
Don't see it if you only like serious plays otherwise, run to see it before it hits Broadway.
See it if First preview. Actors are ready for opening already! Great writing hooks your for the entire time. Unexpectedly great. Funny!
Don't see it if 3:15 hrs long but you don't notice. Sets/lighting are not great but a warning was given that they were not 100% finished.
See it if you're a fan of the movie. Sudeikis makes a great believable Prof. Relatable and subtle. Story true to the movie. Well acted. Entertaining.
Don't see it if you are a die hard for Robin Williams's out-there rendering of the character. Slow at points.
See it if Great singing & songs. Solid staging. Relevant theme. Diverse characters.
Don't see it if Storytelling is confusing/cluttered. Way too many plots drown the relevant message of which we want to know more. Needs streamlining/focus.
See it if Solid entertaining story. Well acted and staged. Molly gives a solid performance and the show moves at a great pace.
Don't see it if Issues of mortality bother you. This is off-Broadway with good production values there within.
See it if Relevant themes of economic struggle. Intelligent. Great sets, polished great acting & directing.
Don't see it if Meandering. The power of the 2008's story was severely diluted in the unnecessary length & musings of the 2000's. Very slow. Uneven.
See it if Incredible immersive experience. Really polished. Great story, music, singing. Staging is like nothing you've experienced before. Must see!!
Don't see it if You'll regret it if you miss this one.
See it if Great story, intelligent, riveting. Great performances. McTeer is superb. Beautiful set (singular) & costumes. A true classic.
Don't see it if issues of overt sexuality bother you. You saw the movie & expect a genteel Valmont. Liev is good but roughish. LLD without a proper bed?!
See it if Fun old-fashioned but freshly done comedy of manners. Fun characters & staging. Well acted. Smart strong women.
Don't see it if This is not a lavish or polished production. It is fun nonetheless. The language is old, but not overly so.
See it if Amazing performance. Simple staging, great lighting. Great writing and clever storytelling.
Don't see it if Themes of child abuse/statutory rape bother you. In a 55 min play, there was plenty of room to develop a few of the threads a bit more.
See it if You enjoy evangelical stories. There is a story there but it's poorly developed & shallow. It has potential if it finds its focus.
Don't see it if Early previews. Could improve. Right now it lacks direction. Feels like separate vignettes. Plot/Characters hardly build on previous scenes
See it if exceptional adaptation/writing! Completely accessible and relatable. Passionately though-provoking. Great actors.
Don't see it if intense, passionate discussion breaking the 4th wall make you uncomfortable. Also common place human moral frailty & greed.
See it if you want to laugh about food and food disorders but with some heart. All cliches are there. Alternating familiar & annoying. Still OK 65 min
Don't see it if Lacks a plot. Lisa is the weakest actress of the 4. Show might've been better with her as writer only. First scene was really contrived.
See it if you can suspend disbelief on how he gets to the trial and concentrate on what happens there. Well done effort to display both sides.
Don't see it if you can't get past the initial premise.
See it if Really great show overall. Incredible performance. Very sleek staging. Great use of story for a one woman show. Interesting subject.
Don't see it if a play bringing up a controversial topic should be balanced on both sides.Let US think. Instead an ex machine plot bulldozes a contrived end

Don't see it if You don't like Godspell or have a judgmental view on the broadness of religious interpretation.
See it if great performances especially Harris & Foote. Great writing. Snippets of life in the 20's perfectly encapsulated. Regular people's problems.
Don't see it if you want clearer endings. The ends are deductible but not spelled out. You don't care about regular people's lives in the 1920's.
See it if Great music/singing done is true 1920's style. Especially clever staging. Cohesive, understandable story. Absorbing, relatable.
Don't see it if It's a small production. Can't expect Broadway. But it is done really well. Not all actors are phenomenal, but the majority is great.
See it if you are at least familiar with the most iconic Batman movies of the last 30 years. Very well written and performed. Absorbing, intelligent.
Don't see it if It's a niche play that requires some prior knowledge of the subject. One man shows at small venues are not your thing.

Don't see it if traditional old fashioned feeling plays are not your thing. You are uncomfortable with themes of open relationship.

Don't see it if just see it! Read the author's notes on the program and pay attention. You will be vastly rewarded.
See it if You want to enjoy a beautiful well done Christmas show and tickle the kid in you. Great production values and flawless synchronized dancing,
Don't see it if This show is a lot more geared for children than adults as opposed to their Spring Spectacular which is for all audiences.
See it if you like Foster. Amazing performance. Powerful small production. Grittier, truer. Touching story.
Don't see it if You prefer more more varnished productions of this harsh reality. Choreography is not the best. Her costume is distractingly silly.

Don't see it if you don't care for LGBT themes or romantic comedies.
See it if you are a fan of Dr. Phil, Nia Vardalos and/or self-help books. It's cute & touching offering good help to the cases. Well-intentioned.
Don't see it if you want a story, preferably one with conflict & resolution. This is an episode of Dr. Phil or an enactment of a self help book.
See it if Great show. Entertaining to a wide range of taste. Perfect to take tourists. Great story, music, singing, staging. Recognizable tunes.
Don't see it if You want something more cerebral. The songs are all easy to like because they are very derivative from music you heard before. Which is fine
See it if Fun story keeps you guessing what's gonna happen next. Fun recognizable characters. Great acting. Very entertaining. Touching arc.
Don't see it if You want big productions. This could easily be taking place in London. That kind of humor.
See it if It's just perfect. Amazing selection of songs, flawless singing, great orchestrations. Kristin is so personable open & fun. Easily lovable.
Don't see it if Even if you don't like concerts there's more than enough story to create a sweet funny thread that makes the entire show a whole. Must See!
See it if You like blunt silly jokes. Unevenly funny. Sometimes LOL sometimes crickets. Very well acted. Solid staging/lighting.
Don't see it if You prefer your humor witty and subtle. Don't want your jokes explained to you. 40% NY jokes. Material is Ok. Not great.
See it if interesting story/writing. Urie is a natural gifted actor. Funny, moving & thought provoking.
Don't see it if you don't care for gay themes. Uneven acting or writing (could be either). Staging had a good tried to be clever but missed.
See it if Modern real issue. Funny, intense & touching treatment. Good acting & writing. Cudos to Finn. Entertaining and relevant.
Don't see it if Projections are well done but set could use more creativity. Some suspension of disbelief required but the ending is worth it.
See it if LGBTQ themes. Great actors/singers especially Block. Some great music. It's a cute show but not great. Nostalgic.
Don't see it if First act is definitely more dated and lacks an engaging story. It's slow. Sets are clever, but off-broadway.
See it if Great visuals. Cute story though not really relatable as the memory of wife & kids is never forgotten by anyone except the main character.
Don't see it if Messy premise. Hypocritical character. Ex Machina solutions. Family abandonment.
See it if Very good show with interesting storytelling. Well acted, nice sets, polished. The full arc is better than the sum of the acts.
Don't see it if Actors look really old on first act. Needs some suspension of disbelief there. First act is funny but leaves you a bit lost.
See it if Excellent production. Absorbing story. Great acting. Masterful Wiesz. Great sets & special kudos to lighting. Broadway ready.
Don't see it if you don't like time leaps that leave you to piece out the intervening years. Themes of mental illness bother you.
See it if you need to see one of the actors in the play live. Sets/costumes are ok but at points just wrong.
Don't see it if Bad writing/direction. No point/focus. Several irrelevant characters with no story taking up time. No heart/depth. Acting very disappointing
See it if you are a fan of 90210. Great music and very clever lyrics. It's fun. Great cast.Great laughs.
Don't see it if You want serious theater or a cerebral comedy. A working knowledge of the real show makes it even funnier but is not 100% necessary.
See it if you like stories about teenage rebellion gone awry & flawed weak characters. Well written & performed. but seriously lacks climax/conclusion
Don't see it if Never really comes to any boil though scenes might be interesting in themselves. Ends without a payoff. Not bad, but somewhat disappointing.
See it if Really well done classic musical. Great music, sweet fun story, charming, heartwarming. Great talent!
Don't see it if you want surprising plots, don't care for 1940 music and dancing.
See it if Great celebrity cast/performances. Good old-fashioned overall story. Second and third acts are better.
Don't see it if No need for 3 acts. First act is a long slow boring pointless set up to things, many of which are unnecessary to following acts.
See it if original presentation=theater+performance pice+audiobook. Starts strong, gets tired later. Based on a good story.
Don't see it if Uncomfortable seats for 2 hours. Visuals are important to you. Story becomes unclear last 20 min. No reason it isn't 90 min.
See it if it has good intentions but the comparison to today's politics albeit timely and real is still misconceived.
Don't see it if You don't want to sit through a work in progress or don't care for audience participation sketches.
See it if Funny & entertaining. Familiar characters. Smart staging. Enjoyable. The silent parts are not overwhelming but can be slow at times.
Don't see it if you want to see characters evolve. It's a funny sketch more than a story arc. Slow at points.
