Clever, Funny, Great acting, Intelligent, Raunchy

See it if You enjoy a good evening of drinking and Shakespeare. The actors are well rehearsed in the art of planned improve. A delightful treat!

Don't see it if You are expecting a classical Shakespeare. This is NOT that kind of evening.

Absorbing, Funny, Great acting

See it if You enjoy off beat, naturalistic humor. Deirdre O'Connell's performance is simply amazing.

Don't see it if You bore easily. It lags a bit, at times, and seemed a couple of scenes too long for a "one act". It dies in the end with no resolve.

Clever, Dated, Great staging, Original

See it if you haven't. Everyone should see this at some point. Hal's direction is really brilliant on this show.

Don't see it if you have seen it. Once is more than enough.

Cliched, Funny, Disappointing, Fluffy

See it if you love 70's music. There are some great tunes and they are well executed for the most part.

Don't see it if you saw it Off-Broadway (it was better there).

Great staging, Original, Ambitious, Epic

See it if ...You enjoy innovative staging. It is several years old, but remains a fresh as the day it opened.

Don't see it if ...you have a deep dislike of Disney.

Clever, Great writing, Hilarious, Intelligent, Thought-provoking

See it if ...you have a pulse. This is one of those rare pieces that EVERYONE should see. A great piece of theatre. Don't miss this one.

Don't see it if Seriously. Just go. This one should win all the Off-Broadway awards. Best Play I have seen in years!

Clever, Funny, Hilarious, Edgy

See it if You are a New Yorker or a fan of NYC. It is actually better in the Off-Broadway (smaller) space. The intimacy really adds to the experience.

Don't see it if You hate puppetry...but if you don't see it, you are missing one of the important pieces of musical theatre history. Just go.

Thought-provoking, Relevant, Slow

See it if You are in High School or have a kid in High School. It would be interesting for parents and kids to see together.

Don't see it if You are tired. It is a bit slow paced until the end.

Clever, Enchanting, Delightful, Great staging, Original

See it if You love musical theatre. One destined to be a classic in the annals of theatre history. It has passed the test of longevity. Go see it! Now

Don't see it if You are a diehard fan of the book, as the plot deviates from the source material.

Entertaining, Original, Raunchy

See it if you like raw, cutting-edge theatre. Also see if you can't get enough of SAVED BY THE BELL. The inside jokes are insightful and funny.

Don't see it if you have a great need for high production values. This show is VERY East Village and has very bare-bones set/lights.

Cliched, Offensive, Dated, Excruciating

See it if you are a straight bachelorette. The only reason this is not a "0" is because the actors are doing amazing jobs in the thinnest of scripts.

Don't see it if you have any intelligence. Jokes are old and tired.

Edgy, Great acting, Slow, Intense

See it if you love Ed Harris. He is amazing. This is not one of Shepard's better plays. The play is self-indulgent and the direction is uneven.

Don't see it if you are sleepy. If you are...the constant rain soundscape will put you under.

Clever, Fluffy, Original

See it if you are interested in movement/dance centered entertainment. The dancers are excellent.

Don't see it if you have seen any version of this show before. Name changes - same show.

Banal, Disappointing, Excruciating

See it if Don't.

Don't see it if This show needs retired. The actress in this show is tired of acting in this dead story...and it shows.

Delightful, Entertaining, Great staging, Great acting

See it if You are a fan of music from the 60's. It is a fun, cruise ship style review. The singing and dancing are what make this show really pop!

Don't see it if You don't like 60's music or require dialogue to follow a story-line. This is wall-to-wall music...good music.

Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging, Riveting

See it if You are a fan of Gloria Estefan. It is a love letter to her music and life. Well acted. The story resonates beyond the stage.

Don't see it if You are not a fan or are uncomfortable with jukebox musicals. This is one...a good one...but still jukebox.

Intelligent, Profound

Don't see it if You MUST see this.
