Masterful, Intelligent, Great writing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You're hungry for great writing/acting. Bening is a revelation to those who have only seen her on film & the play feels surpringly modern

Don't see it if Your'e looking for a lazy, pandering evening of theater. That this is NOT... it's challenging and emotional.

Great writing, Intelligent, Entertaining, Dated, Delightful

See it if You like a classic, well-crafted show, with great songs and characters that hold up after a decade-long run.

Don't see it if You like big productions... this minimal production honors the performers but can feel a little skimpy without stars in the major roles.

Disappointing, Overrated, Indulgent, Excruciating, Cliched

See it if You don't mind AWFUL exposition posing as songs... and every emotion telegraphed to you without one feeling authentic.

Don't see it if You have a love of REAL musical theater... with thoughtful lyrics and melodies that move the plot forward.

Intelligent, Great writing, Funny, Delightful, Clever

See it if VERY funny and smart, yet silly enough to bring out a bit of the kid in all of us. Great parent/teen night in the theater.

Don't see it if You're easily offended.

Disappointing, Insipid, Epic, Great staging, Ambitious

See it if you love truly innovative, unforgetable staging. The use of projections and "Kong" himself are a wonder to experience. Beautiful!

Don't see it if You're expecting an approximation of the movie. The 2nd act is laughable, missing all the terror and drama inherent in the story.
