See it if you love a parody of old Barbara Stanwyck-type movies
Don't see it if you have no knowledge of old Barbara Stanwyck-type movies. It's fun if you know what it's sending up, but I think it could be confusing
See it if you love the music of Maury Yeston and appreciate a cabaret-type evening.
Don't see it if you want a book musical with a plot. This is just songs strung together (in a very charming way).
See it if you like humor. Honestly, I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard at the theater.
Don't see it if you hate humor, hate the movie Tootsie, or hate...swearing, I guess?
See it if you want to see a really great revival of a classic show or if you are a Kelli O'Hara fan (I mean, who isn't?).

See it if you enjoy shows about high schoolers who don't fit in and MPDGs whom they love.
Don't see it if you are looking for a more old-school musical with lyrics you can actually hear/understand.
See it if you are an Off-Center completist, or a big fan of Michael Friedman
Don't see it if you like more traditional musicals with plots, rather than a puffed up cabaret/tribute show.

Don't see it if you prefer a more traditional musical or like a show where you're able to actually hear most of the lyrics
See it if you want to see a really great production of a rarely done musical. Or if you want to forget the revisal version.
Don't see it if you aren't willing to go along for the ride. The book is not the greatest, and it helps to just be all in.
See it if you've never seen a production of Evita that you truly loved. I think this would change your mind.
Don't see it if you don't like shows that are sung-through. This is still pretty true to the Evita we all know in that sense.
See it if you are a Forbidden Broadway fan, a Broadway fan in general, or if you love parodies
Don't see it if you aren't familiar with current Broadway shows, or if hate parodies. I guess pass if you hate The Triad, too.

See it if you like plays that deal with attitudes toward race throughout the years.
Don't see it if you prefer your shows a little more nuanced. The humor in this is played very broadly.

Don't see it if you dislike shows that have a very pat ending or if you prefer a big fancy showbiz-type musical.
See it if you are a HUGE Cher fan, like snazzy sets/costumes, & love seeing SJB, Emily Skinner, or Michael Berresse being amazing
Don't see it if you dislike bio-musicals that just kind of have songs shoe-horned in. They don't work too hard to make things smooth.
See it if you want to see Kristine Nielsen be absolutely brilliant in a slow, if emotionally moving, play.
Don't see it if you dislike shows that take a while to get started and kind of plod along.
See it if you like the type of movies that Adam Sandler has been putting out over the last decade. This could definitely have been a Sandler movie
Don't see it if you like quality musical theater and shows that make you think
See it if you love the music of The Go-Gos or if you are particularly fond of updated Shakespearean-esque stories
Don't see it if you prefer more traditional musicals or dislike frank discussions of gender and sexuality
See it if you liked the movie, or were a fan of Heathers or Bring it On the musicals.
Don't see it if you hate musicals focusing on teenagers or like shows that are really heavy and meaningful
See it if you are passionate about Jimmy Buffet music, or are trying to see every single show that's ever on Broadway
