Thought-provoking, Romantic, Good casting, Absorbing, Original

See it if You want to see a show that falls into the broad but important category of “non-traditional” theatrics.

Don't see it if You do not enjoy jazz styled score, or slower “aria style” songs.

74
Missing something, Quirky, Enchanting, Great acting, Cute

See it if It's closed, so you missed your chance. It has a nice score and had a wonderful cast. It was just missing an "umph."

Don't see it if You can't at the moment. But it is more family-based, if that helps you in the future.

Don't see it if See it. It's Hamilton.

Colorful, Amazing lighting, Movie-turned-musical-syndrome, Fluffy, Intelligent

See it if You are a fan of the movie, or enjoy shows that are about/make fun of theatricality. Some good songs, great lights, good supporting roles!!

Don't see it if You want something truly fresh and original.

88
Absorbing, Romantic, Intelligent, Great staging, Classic

See it if You want a well-produced musical revival that will transport you back in time. Good production value, great performances, beautiful design.

Don't see it if You want something new, fresh, organic, in your face. This is a slow, longer, classical musical.

Great staging, Beautiful ensemble creation, Confusing, Mish mash score, Fun

See it if You want to promote new works. There is so exquisite ensemble creation and group dynamics. Some songs really hit you.

Don't see it if You want a plot, or you do not have a good understanding of Alice In Wonderland. And don't sit in the front row, as your neck will cramp.

89
Riveting, Resonant, Must see, Great acting, Intense

See it if Please see it! A strong, family-based drama. Great design, large cast, many extra elements, beaitiful storytelling.

Don't see it if You can not get past the accents, or think that “three hour shows are too long.”

Resonant, Dizzying, Delightful, Great lighting, Beautiful scenic elements

See it if You want to experience a new musical. Kate Baldwin is lovely. Similar to DEH and Next To Normal.

Don't see it if You want a “big, razzle-dazzle” piece. It’s intimate and family oriented. Also, if you don’t like projections, don’t go.

Disappointing, Overrated, Slow, Cliched, Confusing

See it if Don’t.

Don't see it if Correct.

88
Absorbing, Entertaining, Great singing, Clap-along

See it if You want a handful of singers and dancers to not stop singing and dancing for 90 minutes. Constantly keeps a smile on your face.

Don't see it if You want a plot line. This is a revue.

67
Overrated, Edgy, Slow, Unclear storytelling, Disappointing

See it if You want to be blown away by the lighting and scenic design choice; they truly are riveting. Mediocre casting, unclear plot, and not enough.

Don't see it if You want a great plot, characters with meaning/connections, non-mainstream songs, or if you have never enjoyed Alex Timbers direction.

81
Great writing, Hilarious, Fluffy, Great acting, Dizzying

See it if You are a fan of the film, Tina Fey, Casey Nicolaw, etc. Each of the plastics are A M A Z I N G! Choreo is fast, book is funny. Enjoy it!

Don't see it if You don’t like in-your-face projections. The music is very one noted and focuses on internal emotion. The performers outrank the show itself

Intelligent, Funny, Awakening, Minimal, Resonant

Disappointing, Funny, Cliched, Epic, Raunchy

See it if You are a fan of Jerry Springer and audience interaction. The theatre space is fun and engaging, and the cast can sing spectacularly well.

Don't see it if You want to hear the first syllable of f*** sang for about three minutes. Acts two, three, and four drag on.

71
Beautiful choreography, Quirky, Classic-ish, Interactive, Great lighting

See it if You are a standard "musical theatre nerd" who would like anything, or a fan of the original production.

Don't see it if You want a plot. Or humans.

Ambitious, Great staging, Fluffy, Energetic

See it if You are a fan of the TV show. Many references, always something to look at on or off stage! SO. MUCH. ENERGY.

Slow, Resonant, Relevant, Eh

Don't see it if You are looking for something contemporary, fresh, upbeat, and fun.

Entertaining, Ambitious, Good score, Talented children, Alex brightman is a star

See it if You are a kid, have a kid, or are a kid inside. Well adapted from the film. Fun music. Uplifting evening.

Don't see it if You want to see an innovative piece of theatre that challenges you.

87
Delightful, Fluffy, Great staging, Choreography, Resonant

See it if You love this film, or any of Irving Berlin's music. This show helps to intensify the power of optimism, which we all need right now.

Don't see it if You don't like well executed tap dancing.

93
Captivating, Basic but not, Visually stunning, Fun score, Well written

See it if You don't want to; challenge yourself! The story is more complex than you think and the staging is beautiful and unique.

Don't see it if Not applicable.

Must see, Great staging, Quirky, Slow, Absorbing

Fun, Little shop meets deh, For younger generations, Techno, Energetic

Don't see it if You are not ready for "what Broadway is forming into."

Leslie kristzer, Ambitious, Bold, Not-appeasing-to-today's-sexual-harrasement-based-society, Chaotic (good & bad)

See it if You want to see Leslie Kritzer KILL IT!! Thrilling design, good casting, "Day-O" is so much fun. Great special effects!

Don't see it if Boring transitions, Beetlejuice as a character is much too pervy for today's society, poor score.

93
Wow, Resonant, Relevant, Influential, Absorbing

See it if You want to experience a blurred line between theatricality and forms of political influence. Heidi's story is incredible. Wow. No words.

Don't see it if See it! It is a powerful eye opener, relevant to all people of the world, and slightly interactive. Nothing like anything on BWay right now

Lackluster, Funny, Overrated, Romantic, Well cast

See it if You want good performances from Kelli, Will, Corbin, and Stephanie Styles. Good scenic design, fun choreography, great lighting. Classic!

Cliched, Romantic, Disappointing, Fluffy, Ambitious

See it if You REEEAALLLY like the movie. Or, if you love Orfeh (the most memorable part).

Don't see it if You want to be entertained, or laugh a lot, or have at least one song stick in your head. Confusing narrative, bland Barks.

Don't see it if You don’t want to laugh, open your heart, and enjoy yourself? Or if you only want to see movies turned into musicals?? (Seriously see it!)

76
Eclectic choreo, Romantic, Fluffy, Humorous

See it if You want to see the Renaissance meets LGTB meets The Go-Gos. Modern isolation style of choreography.

Don't see it if You don’t enjoy juke box musicals. It’s better than many of them, but is still a full on juke box.

Absorbing, Delightful, Enchanting, Resonant, Pure magic

See it if See it. No excuses.

Don't see it if #keepthesecrets

Enchanting, Great singing, Stunning visuals, Let it go, Overrated

See it if You want to see Let It Go performed live. That number is spectacular. Cassie and Patti are wonderful! Cool visual effects and magic.

Don't see it if You want to be blown away. The spectacle distracts the bland book, awkward vocal arrangements, and dullness. But Patti and Cassie are great!

Entertaining, Fluffy, Raunchy, Funny, Jimmy buffett

See it if You want a Jimmy Buffett sing-along. The production is fun, and has some visually beautiful moments. Lisa Howard is always fun to watch.

Don't see it if You don't want a Jimmy Buffett sing-along. The plot is so sloppily put together just to get in more songs.

93
Must see, Classic musical comedy, Funny, Absorbing, Joyous

See it if The plot is classic, the songs are show stopping, the script is hilarious, the design ravishing. It's not over rated.

86
Enchanting, Great staging, Thought-provoking, Slow, Resonant

Absorbing, Masterful, Urban, Simply complex, Breathtaking

See it if You want to be entertained for a few hours. These people work so hard with everyday objects and make them seem completely new!
