See it if complicated, unsettling, empathetic, provoking - best storytelling about racial issue which's beyond the issue itself: it's gender, sexual,

Fluffy, Banal, Lack of imagination, Very disappointed at new ohio theatre which was thought to be reliable

See it if great singing alone is enough to satisfy you.

CasablancaBox
Soho/Tribeca
Disappointing

See it if So it sees nothing beyond the making of the film Casablanca ha? It thinks Casablanca's a great film and pays this tribute to it ha?

Don't see it if The interplay of the original film clip and reenactment on the stage is more like a gimmick and becomes dull and unimaginative quickly
