Clever, Dizzying, Edgy, Great singing, Quirky

See it if You EVER went to Studio or are wistful about those times. Female-lead a star is born! But very edgy and sexual

Don't see it if You don’t like sexy edgy musicals that deal with gender issues in your face. If you have “traditional family values”, don’t go near it

Delightful, Entertaining, Cliched, Disappointing, Great staging

See it if It’s My Fair Lady, with one of the great scores of all time. Enjoyable but NOT epic. If you’ve never seen it on stage a must, BUT only if.

Don't see it if You hate traditional musicals or hate productions that too long

See it if If you liked Mamma Mia and want a Mid Summee’s night’s repast, it’s for you It’s fun and silly Book could be a bit tighter though

Don't see it if If you don’t like Silly plays that are filled with pop music not for you. Clear test did you like Mamma Mia

See it if Like shows that challenge you and are unsettling. Despite age, timely since clarion call to dangers of unfettered govt Beautifully acted

Don't see it if Disturbing dark shows aren't your thing. Antithesis to light fluff Also a tad long but flows brilliantly

Absorbing, Entertaining, Great acting, Intelligent, Profound

See it if You like to be challenged and don't mind disturbing plot ripped from headlines. Brilliant acting.

Don't see it if You want light escapist fare. Also lines can be difficult to decipher and hear if you don't have good seats close to stage

See it if If you didn't have Hamilton, this bewitching musical would be a candidate for the Tony for Best Musical. Transports you to different era!

Don't see it if If you don't like country music or a somewhat traditional romantic plot don't go.
