If you like this person's taste, follow her!
See it if You want to see a well-written play about a father and son who don’t get along but are kinda forced to.
Don't see it if You’re bothered/disappointed by actors calling for line in the middle of the show multiple times. It’s a long show, but still...
See it if You want great parts for women in theatre. The relationship these two people have is electrifying and I loved seeing it play out.
Don't see it if You expect most of the action to happen within the play. It doesn’t. The post-script would’ve been a great second act, maybe in the future.
See it if You like political humor or historical fiction. Or if you want to see Brian Cox at his finest. Or a great set/lighting and ensemble cast.
Don't see it if You’d rather see more of MLK’s storyline played out instead of sidelined.
See it if You want to see something new and fresh - something that will make you think about the twists and turns we take in life or what identity is,
Don't see it if You like more directly explicit content on stage. “Chris” is a different race, age, gender, etc in each scene and can be a bit confusing.
See it if You like pop type musical theatre, want to see staged songs without all the backstory, or just want to hear some great music/singing
Don't see it if You require more elaborate plots/character development, dislike Maury Yeston’s music, or if you expect to hear “This Place is Mine”
See it if You want to learn more about more nuanced race relations in the 1970s in NYC. Some great direction, too.
Don't see it if You can't handle the violence, drugs, and racial slurs. It gets INTENSE. It's also relatively long with no intermission.
See it if You want some good ole-fashioned one-liners and/or are someone (or know someone) struggling with fitting bisexuality into everyday life.
Don't see it if You're not a fan of standup, raunchy humor, and/or you're homophobic
See it if You want to see one woman’s struggle with her boss assaulting her. The protagonist was the only flushed-out character and the actor did well
Don't see it if You will be triggered by sexual assault, bad writing, and basically everything else.
See it if You want well-written political humor and a coherent viewpoint on mental illness.
Don't see it if You can’t watch a man talk for about 2 hours with no breaks...could’ve been cut down a bit. Or if him wiping his face will be distracting.
See it if You want the updated version of this classic tale - one that not only includes but centers around the queer life and issues therein
Don't see it if You’re revolted by cursing or thinking about queer people as more than just “YAS kween” entertainers
See it if You want to laugh and be entertained on every level. Dancing, singing, acting, costumes, set design...just so well done. “Greg” can tap!!
Don't see it if You may easily be triggered by some outdated views of how crossdressing/trans living is. That’s my only cringe thing (why I scored <100)
See it if Incredible Marcie Henderson (Hecuba) - nuanced, passionate, heartbreaking, and cutting. Great direction. Text breathes new, relevant life
Don't see it if It's pretty long with no intermission. Baby's fate is a bit confusing.
See it if You loved the movie, 90s music, and great singing. I sure did. Funny moments and a breakout sexy dance from Cecile
Don't see it if You don't like a band overplaying vocalists. It's more a cabaret with costumes/props. Obstructed views and 2-item min. are lame :(
See it if You're a fan of South Park, The Daily Show, Colbert Report, and BIG MUSICAL NUMBERS
Don't see it if You can't take a joke, and don't enjoy big musical numbers.
