Delightful, Great singing, Quirky, Disappointing

See it if You prefer light, happy musicals; very simple, not much plot to follow, a true children's musical. Or, if you haven't seen the movie.

Don't see it if You've seen the movie; it's not a very good translation onto the stage. Or if you want a show with more depth and plot driven.

Entertaining, Romantic, Great singing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You enjoy stories of war-torn far off countries with romance shining through the darkness; a classic musical everyone must see at least once

Don't see it if You're not comfortable with themes that are focused towards adult issues; not a very family show.

Also This is for a previous production.

Enchanting, Romantic, Must see, Great singing, Exquisite

See it if You enjoyed the movie and all of it's lovely music, even the new music is beautiful; a very romantic plot which will enchant the senses.

Great choreography, Ambitious, Entertaining, Intelligent, Great acting

See it if You're a fan of any of the principle cast. Audra is amazing and her costars are fantastic. Shuffle Along immensely entertaining. Loved it!

Don't see it if You're not into documentaries. The original was pivotal in musical theatre history, but the stakes don't feel quite so high in this show.

Refreshing, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You are a fan of Gloria Estefan, Latin music or biopic/ jukebox stories... It's a really fun and entertaining show!! Go see it

Don't see it if 80s music is not your thing, or if you can't bring yourself to sit through another "underdog making it big in American music" story.

Great staging, Delightful, Clever, Charming

See it if you like dancing; you like getting swept away in a romantic but charming story; Brandon Uranowitz is still in it.

Don't see it if dancing bores you; classic musical charm has no effect on you; you have too high expectations.

Insipid, Dizzying, Disappointing, Waste of time, Confusing

See it if You want a true (but very confusing) story about a family immigrating from Cuba to America.

Don't see it if you value your time. You have sensitive ears: it's almost constant screeching and near hysterical fake sobbing.

Masterful, Gripping, Entertaining, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if you want something original, profound, thought-provoking and well written. The score and lyrics were great and the staging was inventive.

Don't see it if you want to see a Tony award winning actor (Michael Cerveris); he wasn't good. His singing was grating and made it hard to focus.

Disappointing, Overrated, Fluffy, Cliched, Dated

See it if You're trying to fill out your bucket list of the classic; not much has changed. Don't go in with high expectations and you might be pleased

Don't see it if You want a story with meat to the bone, you want actual plot and not just fluff. Songs are good, but it's not worth it.

Also Go see The Phantom of the Opera if you want an Andrew Lloyd Webber cla... Read more Read less

Confusing, Great staging, Great singing, Quirky, Slow

See it if You would like to see a musical with great staging, singing, and direction; the actors are magnificent!

Don't see it if You enjoy stories that actually have an ending, or a real plot for that matter. Very long-and-drawn-out story with no solid end.
