Timely, Emotional, Needs-work, Strong ending, Enjoyable

See it if you enjoy a work in progress: strong ending but needs revisions. If you are looking for strong, female, latina characters- look no further.

Thought-provoking, Relevant, Great cast, Unclear ending

See it if you like stories about an urban modern struggle. Important relevance. Actors all very well cast, but some deliver more strongly than others.

Don't see it if you've seen before. The show is less sharp and energized than it once was. Also not for conservative audiences.

Don't see it if you don't already enjoy their music or are looking for a dramatic narrative. Not very challenging material. More of a tourist show.

92

Don't see it if you are a vocal snob.. the current cast is great, but certainly favors acting chops over classical vocalists.

Average, Interesting, Cute, Predictable

See it if you enjoy musical revues. It is worth learning the history of the amazing Hal Prince who truly created this genre. Not a very original work.
