Clever, Funny, Great acting, Great staging, Quirky

See it if You like Brittish Gallows humor and blue collar humor. Enjoy political satire about working conditions for laborers​.

Don't see it if You like rapid-fire joke after joke comedy. Or if you're turned off by working class English accents that can be hard to understand.

Ambitious, Cliched, Entertaining, Overrated, Great staging

See it if You enjoy style over substance. Usually it has an excellent cast, and it does have done of the greatest songs in musical theatre.

Don't see it if You want a truly engaging plot. The characters are shallow and almost every musical number in the second act is a reprise.

Delightful, Enchanting, Epic, Intelligent, Indulgent

See it if You like to see reworkings of classic stories. Enjoy Schwarz's musical style and larger more extravagant​ productions.

Don't see it if You are done with cynical re-imaginings of classic stories. If you don't like musicals this won't be the one that will change your mind.

Ambitious, Overrated, Great staging, Epic, Cliched

See it if You love the music. The show is a miracle of staging.

Don't see it if You have a problem with pacing. The show has a tendency to jump from plot point to plot point with little time for breathing room.
