Relevant, Great staging, Great singing, Must see, Absorbing

See it if I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys theater. It was one of those types of shows that I wanted to immediately see again.

Clever, Funny, Delightful

Entertaining, Great singing

See it if You enjoy classic musicals.

Don't see it if Having heard Fiddler referred to as an uplifting show but I was struck by how down the ending was. Makes sense historically but unexpected.

Funny, Weak score, Dated, Great staging

See it if You are looking for a true musical comedy with a great actor leading the cast.

Don't see it if You want a serious show. You are concerned about the troubling issues vis-a-vis transwomen and misogyny that the show doesn't completely fix

Octet

Thought-provoking, Great singing, Ambitious

See it if You are a Dave Malloy fan. I feel it leans more Ghost Quartet than Great Comet. You enjoy acapella/choral style music.

Don't see it if You do not like an unusual show. You don't like acapella. You prefer a show with more of a plot, rather than a collection of stories.

Also I really, really wanted Little God to work for me but it just did not ... Read more Read less
