For a previous production
Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Refreshing

See it if This is a fun show. You get the real sense that you're seeing new and original material.

Don't see it if You want something really tight and polished.

During previews
Great acting, Intense, Relevant

See it if Judith Light is amazing.

Don't see it if Sometimes Labute's characters seem like tired, whiny, young micepeople that fantastic actors bring to life out of necessity.

Absorbing, Entertaining, Great acting, Great writing

See it if You're in the mood for an intimate immersive piece that relies on dance to move you forward and little is explained.

Don't see it if Immersive theater isn't your thing.

Absorbing, Great staging, Entertaining

See it if One heck of a spectacle. It uses texture completely to its advantage and delivers in the ways you hope. The animals are stunning.

Don't see it if You're not in the mood for a Broadway blockbuster.

Entertaining, Funny, Great singing, Great acting

See it if There are some moments of real power here. The show makes a statement about difference that still needs to be heard by a great many people.

Don't see it if At times the show does rely quite a bit on texture.

Don't see it if You have to take out a second mortgage on your house.

Entertaining, Great singing, Funny

See it if For one actor to play this many roles, all with distinction and intensity, is worth seeing for its own sake.

Don't see it if It has a cartoon-ish quality that's sometimes funny, often entertaining, but sometimes this element removes you from the piece.

Clever, Funny, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if A fun, unpretentious look into cutting edge social issues. It's informative but not at all preachy.

Don't see it if You're looking for something heavy.

Cliched, Funny, Overrated

See it if You'd like an easy story that doesn't challenge you.

Don't see it if This show seems a bit confused. It is supposed to be scary? I wasn't.

Fluffy, Disappointing

See it if Kids who are fans of the movie will probably enjoy themselves.

Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Masterful, Riveting

See it if Blindingly real characters in NYC dealing with harrowing issues related to race, drugs, crime and poverty. A brilliant piece.

Don't see it if You'd rather not question your moral foundation.

Great acting, Great writing, Original, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if This is a strong new voice in American theater. The book aspect is what drew me in, but the show is great. Dark and engaging the whole way.

Don't see it if Dark humor that borders on horror turns you off.

Delightful, Hilarious, Intelligent, Masterful, Must see

See it if You're a fan of theater and you have the means. Not an easy ticket, but well worth the hoops you'll have to jump through. A landmark show.

Don't see it if Getting the ticket is too demanding. And by that I mean you have to walk through fire.
