Great writing, Riveting, Masterful, Enchanting, Clever

See it if you love Harry Potter and wish the books would continue. love magic tricks, plot twists and clever sets.

Don't see it if you can't imagine needing to see two shows to get one story. you don't know the harry potter back story.

Entertaining, Great staging, Quirky, Edgy, Clever

See it if you like modern interpretations of the classics, especially in regards to set design, staging and use of technology.

Great acting, Thought-provoking, Masterful, Intelligent, Absorbing

See it if You want to see an all-star cast. With a minimalist touch, Sorkin uses negative space and memory to tell this disturbing and vivid story

Don't see it if You have a hard time with graphic and racist language, accents or the telling of this brutal chapter in American history. Not for the feint

See it if you like Tina Fey. Great re-interpretation of the movie. The clever use of social media on the stage makes the topics particularly current

Don't see it if you don't like stories that deviate from the original. don't like it when older actors play younger roles.

Creative, Quirky, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You like improv. Clever premise. Terrific audience involvement. Nice to be able to order drinks during the show.

Don't see it if You are expecting to see anything serious about Shakespeare. Shakespeare takes a back-seat to the somewhat spontaneous sketch comedy scenes.

Great staging, Delightful, Funny, Indulgent, Clever

See it if You are an Avid musical-theater goer. Have kids (even if they didn't like the movie!). You love high quality costumes, sets and lighting.

Don't see it if Disney singing annoys you or if you expect it to be exactly like the movie.
