If you like this person's taste, follow her!
See it if You love musicals that feel like concerts. It’s not the whole time, don’t worry, but when it’s needed, it happens and it’s brilliant.
Don't see it if You don’t like concerts. You are a misogynist. You will be trigged by domestic violence, more than once, FYI.
See it if You want reality instead of a pretty picture or a story to escape the present. Also, if you enjoy Greek Tragedies but still keep hope alive.
Don't see it if You require traditional writing, music, or Broadway happy endings. The performance, despite its longevity, has a genuine touching rawness.
See it if You have an ear for translation. The script was good from Portuguese to English but there were others that could have been better.
Don't see it if You don’t fall for “Magical Realism”
See it if You feel hopeless by what is happening in society right now. It validates thoughts/feelings but also keeps hope alive.
Don't see it if You are a misogynist. Also if you are still dealing with DV issues, this could be a trigger. And, if you don’t enjoy one person narratives.
See it if You are okay with unorthodox staging, you like live music and interactive theatre and enjoying learning.
Don't see it if You are unable to “give yourself” to a performance; you will be standing, dancing; jostled and if you’re short sometimes you won’t see.
See it if You lived the series and READ IT! If you didn’t then maybe this will make you want to. It is a full-immersion show and you will be pulled in
Don't see it if You can't transcend into magical realism. And if you’re a bully, you should be forced to watch it while gagged.
See it if You want a great and new perspective of the US Constitution and also of a time and place that is fading in our country (may not be negative)

Don't see it if You can’t handle real life blatantly happening in your face and you don’t like feeling bad or angry.

Don't see it if You have strong issues with abusive relationships; can’t sit for longer than an hour.
See it if you like one-man shows, loved the 80s, have a stake in gang culture or want to understand the people in it, see the humanity in urban life.
Don't see it if you don't like one man shows, don't like 80s house music or culture, are still overcoming the loss of a loved one and are emotionally raw.

Don't see it if You want history to be exactly the way it was taught to you; in other words, you are not a person who likes change. Stay in your cave.
See it if You like making connections from the present to what you see & hear on stage. Songs are wonderful & funny. Saw in Chicago w. Ana Gesyter <3

See it if You want to enjoy dinner in a group and also watch a show. You don’t have to be quiet, you can drift in and out of the performance, 2 in 1.
Don't see it if You are expecting a New York Broadway experience. If you want A SHOW this is not it. It’s an experience and it’s not meant to be much else.

See it if You like shows that bring the audience into the performance and are “open-ended” in their approach and intention. It’s non-traditional.
Don't see it if You need linear and blatant story-lines. If you loved the “original” Broadway or film production and want a remake, not for you.
See it if You want an experience, to feel like you were transported to another time. The show spans many decades and the music/dancing, AMAZING!!!
Don't see it if You think theatre is a one-way street and the audience is supposed to be sitting quietly the whole time. It is nearly impossible to do that.
See it if LOVE TAP & AMAZING VOICES! The Company took the show from 90 to 100! “Too Darn Hot” stole my heart and Kelli O’Hara’s voice gave me chills.
Don't see it if You’re a moron. You have to be an exceptional person to not at least like the show much less love it. I guess misogynists will hate it?

Don't see it if You don’t like explicit mentions of sex or being reminded or white privilege which you would clearly need if you don’t like the reminders.
See it if You enjoy ANY behind the scenes work on stage. The title does not do this workshop justice! You will truly know the how and why of staging.

Don't see it if You don’t like one-person shows.
