Great singing, Exquisite, Must see, Enchanting, Excellent dancing!

See it if You enjoy gorgeous music, marvelous dancing, humor that doesn't make the show feel dated.

Don't see it if You are in a hurry. It runs 2:45 and I found each minute absorbing but if you have a short attention span, you might not.

Enchanting, Great acting, Great singing, Exquisite, Profound

See it if you want a new take on a great classic musical. I was blown away by Jake G's take on this impressive role.

Don't see it if you loved Mandy Patinkin's and Bernadette's version so much you can't be open to another!

Absorbing, Clever, Entertaining, Great writing, Intense

See it if you like edgy lyrics with brilliant rhyming and a story that will take your breath away...and is primarily historically true to boot!

Don't see it if you don't get the CD or Hamiltome beforehand and read up/listen up a little. You will miss out on some of the best lines and rhymes!

Clever, Funny, Great acting, Great writing, Original

See it if you love theater and will rejoice at all the little bits of pieces of other shows that have been slipped into this one!

Don't see it if you can't keep up with a fast paced hilarious show that celebrates all that is great about live theater.

Clever, Great staging, Entertaining, Great singing, Must see

See it if you love a magnificent staging of a classic show, with superb dancing, extraordinary acting, a fun time and, of course, Bernadette!

Don't see it if you don't like dancing and singing or you feel like you've seen one Dolly, you've seen them all.

Masterful, Great acting, Entertaining, Exquisite, Cliched

See it if you want to catch Glenn Close at her best! And a score so lush that it carries you away. Had no desire to see it, yet loved it in the end.

Don't see it if you can't appreciate a classic story, even if it is outdated a little at this point. Or if you don't love musicals.

For a previous production
Ambitious, Entertaining, Resonant, Great acting, Great singing

See it if you remember and loved Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons as much as my generation did. They really made part of music history come alive.

Don't see it if you think Jersey can only produce gangsters and garbage...only if you can appreciate the 2 Frankies it gave the world: Valli and Sinatra!

Clever, Riveting, Delightful, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if you loved the story by Roald Dahl and appreciate the effort it took to make it come alive...and if you love a great song to swing to!

Don't see it if you have trouble with understanding the British accent and will let that get in the way of enjoying it.

Great staging, Disappointing, Excruciating, Overrated, Slow

See it if you want to see great costumes that help suspend belief in actors as animal characters

Don't see it if you loved the movie. The singing and acting is not as good as the original and it dragged..
