See it if you love innovation, raucous music, great singing, immersive staging, laughter, tears, emotions, and more. Best thing I've seen on stage!!
Don't see it if you want a traditional musical or dialogue. Or if strobe lights are problematic.
See it if you're a fan of either actor- they are both jaw dropping and work together to create a devastating show that rips your heart out.
Don't see it if you need a light evening out- this is a deeply troubling show that delves deeply into sexual abuse.
See it if you want to be blown away by singing! This is a knockout cast with no weak links. Powerful story told with passion and vulnerability. WOW.
Don't see it if you were only there for Jennifer Hudson (she's hardly missed, though, as Heather Headley slays every moment of her role)
See it if Well-written script about moral dilemmas in finance, in-the-round staging. Good for those who work in finance or just like food for thought.
Don't see it if finance jargon is not explained- I got lost a couple times, and I'm sure others find it confusing as well. Not a light show.
See it if Jessie Mueller is phenomenal. Go for her. Delicious catchy songs, great cast, lots of laughs, and the scent of pies in the theater!
Don't see it if Call me a prude, but I didn't like the feeling that the show wanted me to cheer for extramarital affairs. Male characters one-dimensional.
See it if masterful performance by Ben Walker, some of the most brilliant lighting design I've seen, psychological thriller with stylized staging
Don't see it if if you don't like a dark, raunchy, gory, ironic, satirical, experimental show, or an electronic score with heavy beats. It's not for all.
See it if you like a good classic musical with a fresh take- I loved the new choreography.
Don't see it if you are ready for Fiddler to retire. Or if you get frustrated with tourist audiences who don't switch off phones or stop talking.
See it if you like new stagings of classics and can handle a few hours of Philip Glass music. Ben Whishaw and Tavi Gavinson are brilliant.
Don't see it if you need a laugh or you had a rough day. This is an emotionally draining show, and the production sucks you in. For serious theater lovers.
See it if you love Shakespeare and musical theater, if you are cynical about musicals and all their cliches
Don't see it if you can't catch a Shakespeare reference here or there
See it if you like storytelling- the show was much more like a live radio drama than a play. Innovative staging and use of sound.
Don't see it if you need visual stimulation. You could watch with your eyes closed. It requires your active imagination! 2 hour runtime with no intermission
See it if you love bluegrass music, if you like fairy tales and all their silliness, if you love a quirky staging of a small show with a talented cast
Don't see it if you are cynical; there is nothing "new" to see here, only the best of the old
See it if fresh look on history, rap, and a reflection on ambition and the way we tell history. Spectacular acting, phenomenal book and score.
Don't see it if you're sick of the hype, even though it lives up to it. Also don't spend your entire paycheck to see this- there's more to life.
See it if you love gleeful song and dance, classic shows, virtuosic performances by a cast that seems to love their show, fantasy-land set pieces
Don't see it if you hate fluffy musicals, classics or fun
See it if great show for a family; gorgeous set and production design; outstanding performance by Sarah Charles Lewis; faithful to the book
Don't see it if you're cynical. Songs are self-indulgent: gorgeous to listen to and watch, but don't advance the characters or story. Simple plot, not edgy.
See it if a decent staging of a classic, although the translation didn't quite do it for me. Solid acting, but the story dragged after a while.
Don't see it if Well, it's a Greek tragedy. It's not uplifting. Not a splashy production, given the slow-moving, thought-provoking text.
See it if F. Murray Abraham's performance alone is worth the ticket price. Great chance to see a rarely-staged classic in an intimate venue.
Don't see it if It's a classic play about religious characters discussing religion, so take that for what it is. Modern translation sometimes distracted.
See it if you want to feel like you're watching the show for the first time, if you love the score but hate Orientalism
Don't see it if you rely on sets to distract you from the script
See it if If you like bluegrass, if you love rich vocal harmonies on stage, if you just want to escape into a sweet fantasy world
Don't see it if If an all-white cast turns you off, if you expect to see Steve Martin on stage, if you need an edgy, groundbreaking show
