Funny, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You enjoy the camp of the show. It’s a great cast currently with Christian Borle and Jonathan Groff.

Don't see it if I actually heard folks behind me say t was a little scary. Really? If you watch shows as if they’re reality and get scared easily, don’t go.

The Inheritance
Midtown W
Slow, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if You need to follow the hype and convince yourself this is a good show.

Don't see it if This is not the Angels of America of this generation. The characters were not likeable, nor did I care about the story. I so wanted to leave

Quirky, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You’re an Alex Brightman fan. He’s working hard here and does a great job. Sophie Caruso is a spectacular singer. Goofy fun

Don't see it if You want a deep story. This is silly and campy. I wasn’t a fan of the movie, not sure if a fan would like it more or less.

Ambitious, Relevant, Funny, Entertaining

See it if this is the latest in teenager not fitting in stories. It starts off great, gets a little slow but has a good message in the end.

Don't see it if You can’t suspend belief. It’s a silly concept but you have to be able to go along on the ride to enjoy it.

Also George Salazar is a star!

Exquisite, Great staging, Delightful

See it if You know the music and are not expecting a modern show. It’s very well done. You’ll know every song. Get Me To the Church On Time-fantastic

Don't see it if If you can’t appreciate when this was written, prior to women’s rights awareness. They changed the ending, which was a nice kick in the can.

Also Lincoln Center puts on gorgeous shows, the sets, the costumes are just... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Ambitious, Resonant

See it if You want to watch great actors in a riveting show. It's funny, it's deep, it is like the gay fantasia in parts. It's fascinating to watch.

Don't see it if You don't want to watch a nearly 8 hour show over two nights. It's a commitment.

Enchanting, Great acting, Great singing, Quirky, Boring

See it if You love Phillipa Soo. There are some magical moments and the cast and ensemble had some standouts.

Don't see it if Even the big numbers don't necessarily soar, such a shame. I didn't see the movie, it left me wanting to see it. I expect to like that more.

See it if This was an important story about bullying and its effects. There were some cliches regarding the bully.

Don't see it if Teen angst annoys you. There are some leaps the writer wants the audience to take that seem far fetched.

See it if You are interested in a different story about 9/11. A story about humanity and strangers helping strangers. The cast was great. High energy

Don't see it if Great songs are crucial, really aren't any here.The lyrics can be clunky in trying to tell a story. It's light, yet there are moments of sad

Banal, Disappointing, Excruciating

See it if You want to see great Bdwy stars, Terrence Mann, Carolee Carmelo and Andrew Keenan Bolger.

Don't see it if You want to be entertained. I disliked that Winnie never seemed conflicted about whether to live forever or not. Seem to throw that away.

Cliched, Ambitious, Great staging

See it if This is worth seeing for the immersive staging. The ensemble is great and work their butts off and the costumes are beautiful.

See it if You're a fan of Carol King, the music of the 60's. It's definitely entertaining and very well done. Fun staging and costume changes.

Don't see it if You don't like jukebox musicals. While it works smoother in this one, it's all music you know already and seems a bit dated.

See it if You love a show with fantastic singing, beautiful costumes and beautiful scenery. Much of the scenes are computer generated but it works!

See it if You enjoy farce and physical comedy. It is so well done here. I'm not a fan of that genre but completely appreciated how they perfected it.

Don't see it if It's worth seeing even if you don't like farce, there were a couple of repetitive spots but it was always a hoot; such fun.

Disappointing, Slow, Overrated

See it if You need to see classic shows. Dancing was very good. Go with a discount ticket offer only, not worth full priced admission.

Don't see it if You love the prior version with Topol and Jerome Robbins dancing. This doesn't live up to that. Voices were not great and the show dragged.
