Quirky, Disappointing, Great acting, Great singing, Great staging

See it if You enjoy great acting and musicians. The cast is super talented. Musicians are superb.

Don't see it if You are expecting The Great Comet. Maybe that’s why I was disappointed. Really wanted to love it but just didn’t connect with it.

Great acting, Great singing, Great staging, Entertaining, Enchanting

See it if Go to see Mark Rylance, the gorgeous staging, and the beautiful sound of castrato. Really a beautiful show. Rylance is from another planet.

Don't see it if You are a philistine or you hate opera. The whole show is not an opera. Just a few songs throughout.

Intelligent, Hilarious, Great acting, Great writing, Resonant

See it if You enjoy grown up, sophisticated relationship/marriage humor, sharp dialog, and fine acting. Brilliant stuff.

Don't see it if You don't like dialog driven plays. No intermission in a 90 minute play.

Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Intense, Slow, Relevant

See it if You enjoy a great thought provoking story. It's a classic story so the experience was good.

Don't see it if You don't like flashing lights or need an intermission. Seriously, a guy in my row left his seat in a panic (an hour in) and never returned.

Exquisite, Entertaining, Great singing, Great staging, Absorbing

See it if You want to have an amazing theater experience. Everything about this show is so well done. It is just a feast for the senses. Great show.

Don't see it if You only enjoy traditional musicals. Great Comet is more like an opera where there is no dialog and everything is communicated by song.

Great acting, Great singing, Intelligent, Masterful, Great writing

See it if You want to see a modern masterpiece. Finally saw it and it is as good as advertised. Rage against the Machine meets Broadway. Incredible.

Don't see it if You are a super casual theater fan

Hilarious, Raunchy, Must see, Great writing, Entertaining

See it if You ever wondered what would happen if an insane asylum on crystal meth did a production of the Lion King. Great songs, amazing production.

Don't see it if You are easily offended. It is brutal.
