See it if For its stellar voices, striking design and powerful music. A smart fable that feels part family drama part Urinetown.

Don't see it if Set is very minimal for what feels like a big musical and the sound design is inconsistent. There are some cringy lyrics that muddy up plot.

Also I loved the show and was very moved. The cast and crew were warm givin... Read more Read less

See it if You like multi genre work and enjoy folk music and scientific pondering.

Don't see it if You think science fiction and folk music go along together. Or if you expect great music, the music is weak but catchy.

See it if You like mystical theater. Strong storytelling. Great design. Spooky stories.

Don't see it if You want a simple campfire tale. Its hard to follow the plot twists with so many characters. It also loses steam in the final third.

See it if You like great acting and meta theater.

Don't see it if You expect a show to be cohesive with an understandable plot.

See it if You love sketch comedy with a twist supported by a great performer.

Don't see it if You loathe sketch comedy or have no imagination or are seeking a show with substance.

See it if You want to see a bigger than life Drag show rewriting history with some solid musical numbers.

Don't see it if You want a coherent plot. The show moves through so much historic rewriting it loses itself and its audience.

See it if You like broad fast paced comedy. Its silly ala pineapple express and airplane! A satirical romp.

Don't see it if You are seeking a comedy that lands. The timing is often off. The show feels about 45 minutes too long and it grows weary and tiring.

See it if You want to see a thesis project from a wonderful composer with brilliant orchestrations. Or if youre a DH Lawrence fan.

Don't see it if You want a good story. Its trite storytelling and the performances don't carry the material. Its slow and bland.

See it if You wish to see a big musical in development with social conciousness. Some of the ballads are nice and the children in it are wonderful.

Don't see it if You want a show that doesnt beat a message into you with a one sided political view and a lack of actual perspective.

See it if You want bawdy surreal work. Its funny and edgy and the performances are truly wondreous.

Don't see it if You expect a narrative that makes linear sense. The show can also become self indulgent at times.

See it if You enjoy fables and want to see wonderful acrobatics and good storytelling.

Don't see it if You expect a big acrobatics a la Cirque. This is a storytelling piece using bodies as vehicles for narrative.

See it if You want a human, charming, lovely two hander about modern relationships.

Don't see it if You are expecting ground breaking new theater. This is simple and rewarding but its not innovative.
