See it if you're hungry for a TRUE broadway show, complete with show stopping songs, amazing dance numbers, and scenes that make you laugh and cry.

Don't see it if You have no spot in your heart for immigrants, or you're anti-semetic. Don't see it if you're looking for a new edgy show.

See it if You're looking for an extremely moving show with amazing direction. A NEW prduction of Spring Awakening, brings the show to a new level.

Don't see it if You're looking for a family friendly show, or you find sign language too "busy" in addition to the show. But trust me just see it.

See it if You like Idina Menzel or Anthony Rapp, Tom Kitt or Brian Yorkey. You love movies told in flashbacks and what ifs?

Don't see it if *SPOILER* Abortion or militairy death is triggering. You want an actually deep show and not just ones that misses the mark.

See it if You love a classic show with strong characters. One of the more moving and heartfelt productions of Les Mis I've seen

Don't see it if You're bored easily, as the scenes leading up to 1832 are slow paced and a bit boring. Don't go if you want a light hearted show

See it if you love to laugh or love the bard himself. It's one of the funniest shows out there.

See it if you like seeing child-oriented theatre, if you have a family, or if you love a light story with a clear moral.

Don't see it if You want a deep or emotional show. Webber's score is forgetable and is only saved by the use of original songs from the movie.
