See it if you want to see some amazingly talented kids perform and don;t mind sitting through the rest of the show to watch them.

See it if you are a fan of cirque du soleil but always wanted an intelligible story to go with the amazing visuals.

Don't see it if you expect a classic song and dance show, this is not it. Cirque does a great job of catering to broadway but it's not theatre.
