Clever, Ambitious, Delightful, Funny, Great staging

See it if you're a fan of the cartoon; if you appreciate clever staging and found-object style sets; for the tap number alone.

Don't see it if you prefer a slow-burn type of show or one that's more thought-provoking than over the top and fun.

Also The show is pure joy. There's something here for everyone whether you ... Read more Read less

Enchanting, Great acting, Profound, Resonant

See it if you want to be reminded of the transcendent power of music to heal. And see it to see Mark Rylance live! A living legend.

Don't see it if you don't like period pieces or opera.

Ambitious, Entertaining, Dated, Great staging

See it if you're looking for melodrama and the over-top staging of your dreams. As good a production of Miss Saigon as there could be.

Don't see it if you're looking for something modern and fresh. You can tell this show was written when it was written.

Thought-provoking, Riveting, Great acting, Epic, Ambitious

See it if you love the play, and see it even if you don't think you'll like it. There is so much about this production to appreciate.

Don't see it if you know four hours is too long for you to be able to concentrate. This is an "every second counts" play.

Ambitious, Great staging, Resonant, Riveting

See it if you want to see a unique spin on a show you already know and love and if you love site-specific performance.

Don't see it if you want a classic, splashy production, or you're unfamiliar with the material. And don't see it if you're claustrophobic!

Entertaining, Resonant, Cliched, Fluffy, Great singing

See it if ...you love the great American tradition of folk music, you'd like to see some innovative choreography and design, or you want to happy cry.

Don't see it if You were expecting a story other than a glorified Lifetime movie. Done well, with great music and acting, but still: a good cheesy melodrama
