Edgy, Great acting, Intelligent, Thought-provoking

See it if You are interested in a fresh take on an old standard. There were things I hated, but I love that it made me THINK.

Don't see it if You have a warm, fuzzy glow about OKLAHOMA And expect to see a traditional take.....you will be disappointed.

Burn This

Great writing, Great acting, Funny

See it if You like funny, thoughtful plays. Evocative lighting/sets. Great acting. Movie/TV stars onstage

Don't see it if My only criticism is that the acting is a bit uneven. I felt there were 3 OUTSTANDING acting performances and one that was ok-kind of forced

Slow, Intelligent, Relevant, Romantic, Disappointing

See it if You love non-traditional musicals with several “sub stories”. You like watching and hearing a live band onstage.

Don't see it if You expect a big song and dance show. If you like fast paced drama.

Disappointing, Excruciating

See it if You want to enjoy hearing a big beautiful orchestra onstage with a lot of terribly under pitch singing

Don't see it if You have perfect pitch......ooof.

Ambitious, Edgy, Intelligent, Masterful, Relevant

See it if You don't mind seeing "concept" Shakespeare. See it if you want to see a take on the Tempesr that speaks to loss of freedoms today.

Don't see it if You aren't open minded to unique casting, or are a stickler for "tradition "

Intense, Thought-provoking, Great staging

See it if High concept-but accessible. FANTASTIC music, performances, staging, set design. Truly engaging and surprisingly moving.

Don't see it if You don’t like thru-sung shows and are looking for a light and fluffy show. It’s edgy, but in a good way.

Disappointing, Excruciating, Insipid

See it if You like the Go-Gos music?????? The lighting was good.

Don't see it if I don’t really know where to start......it doesn’t ask questions, feels like it makes fun of sexuality, and uses every cheap gag out there.

94

Great acting, Great staging, Intense, Intelligent, Quirky

See it if You are a fan of Ben Platt and want to see a masterclass in acting-want to see excellent use of projections.

Don't see it if You are expecting a "big" musical-it is compact, and moving, yet musically on the safe side. The music doesn't develop with the characters.

In Transit
Midtown W
Clever, Funny, Great staging, Great singing

See it if You are a fan of Glee or the Pitch Perfect films and if you have ever ridden the subway.' The staging is very clever and uses the space well

Don't see it if you are expecting another "Let it Go" anthem.....it isn't there. The songs are well arranged and performed, but are not memorable.
