Entertaining, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Delightful, Funny

See it if You’re willing to forgive some groaner, lyrical cliches that distract from a show with real heart and great potential.

Don't see it if You have no idea who Harvey Milk is, you hate musicals and aren’t interested in seeing one that, inspite of its flaws, is moving, funny and

Also profound.

Thought-provoking, Riveting, Must see

See it if You want to see a fresh take on a classic play, brilliantly acted with a point of view that is totally unique & thought provoking.

Don't see it if Tennessee Williams's writing has never moved you or you're looking for jazz hands. If reinterpreting the classics bothers you.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Great writing, Intelligent, Must see

See it if You want to see riveting political theater performed with multimedia staging that's as relevant now as the 40 yr old story it tells was then

Don't see it if You're not interested in revolutionary politics of the 70's told from a very human point of view that is as cutting edge now as it was then.

Also Must see if you have any interest in cutting edge theater that tells a... Read more Read less

Great singing, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful, Relevant

See it if You loved the movie or just like poignant, touching musicals with great heart and a great sense of humor, inspite of its serious subject.

Don't see it if You hated the movie or you can't understand how serious subjects can keep their sense of humor and still be relevant.

Great staging, Entertaining, Enchanting, Resonant, Great singing

See it if You like classic musicals restaged for today, that are just as relevant now as they were the day they opened.

Don't see it if You don't like classic Broadway musicals with great singing, amazing dancing and wonderful acting that still tugs at the heart strings.

Disappointing, Intense, Overrated, Thought-provoking, Ambitious

See it if You want to see Jeff Daniels in a tour de force performance, or a thought provoking and topical play, which should have been better.

Don't see it if You had high expectations from all the hype or if one great performance, in a sea of mendacity, isn't enough to pay the ticket price.

75
Entertaining, Disappointing, Uninspired, Okay, Great singing

See it if You're interested in the story, behind the story. You know someone in the cast, or like to see good singing without a great structure.

Don't see it if You're expecting great writing, great music, or great staging.

Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Romantic, Fluffy

See it if You love amazing dancing and classic American music, staged beautifully.

Don't see it if You expect to see the movie of the same name ,we all know and love, on stage, or are expecting the voices to match the dancing ability.

Great staging, Entertaining, Enchanting, Clever, Ambitious

See it if You think Julie Taymor is one of the originals of American theater, you want to see a family friendly show, adults and kids can equally love

Don't see it if You only want to see something that has a "big name" in it and have no interest in brilliant staging and costume design.

See it if You love South Park, or you just have a sense of humor.

Don't see it if You have no sense of humor

Entertaining, Intelligent, Quirky, Thought-provoking, Funny

See it if You like quirky, interesting, true stories, told in a linear way, but with tangents of Becket-like surrealism.

Don't see it if You don't like intimate, black box theater productions that explore quirky, relationships that have a profound impact on each character.

Absorbing, Funny, Great singing, Profound, Relevant

See it if Intelligent family focused dramedies without regard to sexuality , with excellent voices, acting and writing interest you.

Don't see it if You are upset by gay marriage, or demonstrative physical affection and you don't believe that family comes in many forms.

Disappointing, Entertaining, Great acting, Fluffy, Uneven

See it if You're a major Nicky Silver fan, as am I.

Don't see it if You expect it to be as good as everything he's done before and you're not willing to, "give him this one ".

Also Great first act, what you've come to expect from Silver, but really go... Read more Read less

Funny, Great acting, Resonant, Intelligent, Great writing

See it if dramadies that show the dark underbelly of family love with pathos and humor are your cup of tea.

Don't see it if You think a comedy can't be serious or a drama can't be funny.

Original, Must see, Intelligent, Clever, Thought-provoking

See it if You like intelligent stories told with a minimum of words but with enormous detail and thought

Don't see it if You are offended by brief nudity or don't like having to think about what you're watching.

Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Great acting, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you want to see a thought provoking work wrapped in the guise of an absurdist comedy, brought vividly to life by a great cast & a few props.

Don't see it if you don't like black box theater, allegorical plays, or stripped down theater with a small cast and virtually no scenery.

80
Clever, Entertaining, Quirky, Funny, Ambitious

See it if You're looking for something that will entertain teenagers to younger kids, or love spectacle for its own sake.

Don't see it if You think this show was 30 minutes longer than it needed to be and don't like loud, flashy staging.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Refreshing, Delightful
