Fluffy, Refreshing, Must see, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if You like Top 50 pop music, enjoy high-energy shows and love great stage and costumes

Don't see it if you are a movie purist - there are quite a few changes in the show. If you like original, un-cliched plots, this is not for you either.

Great acting, Relevant, Ambitious, Masterful, Intense

See it if you like Brecht or want to watch an intense and powerful performance by Esparza. The theater is intimate and the whole cast dynamic.

Don't see it if you don't like politically charged plays or want to watch escapist theater. Also requires concentration to fully engage in the performance.

Ambitious, Quirky, Resonant, Delightful, Refreshing

See it if you love Sondheim and enjoy small-scale, witty and insightful theater production.

Don't see it if you expect big production, catchy lyrics and happy endings. The show moves backwards and requires some efforts to follow.

Also This is the first production of Merrily that I've seen so I can't comp... Read more Read less

During previews
Clever, Entertaining, Great singing, Hilarious, Dated

See it if you love Kelli O'hara, wonderful choreography and beautiful music

Don't see it if you prefer a contemporary show to a revival show with little plot update. The dated way the show portrays women might offend young viewers.

See it if you are a fan of the movie, enjoy modern pop music and want a fun, entertaining, escapist, feel-good theater experience.

Don't see it if you enjoy thought-provoking shows. It is a fairly faithful adaptation of the movie; you won't see any updates to the story.

See it if you want to see a classic done justice on stage. Powerful acting, great staging, highly relevant, educational and emotional.

Don't see it if you are not interested in the issue of class and race or if you want to see an exact replication of the book or the movie.

Enchanting, Intelligent, Absorbing, Refreshing, Great acting

See it if you enjoy the Harry Potter universe or you enjoy unique and exceptional special effects.

Great singing, Entertaining, Enchanting, Must see, Great staging

See it if it's your first Broadway show, it's a classic. The music is beautiful and the set and costumes never fail to amaze,

Don't see it if you don't enjoy escapism type of show - the plot does not make a lot of sense.
