Relevant, Quirky, Disappointing

See it if you like shows with music in it, about relevant topics about immigration, shows that are told with a bit of humor.

Don't see it if you like a solid story that moves quickly and has a deep meaning to it or you like art with a lot of power to it.

Also I was expecting to really like this show but it ended up falling short... Read more Read less

Great acting, Great staging, Great writing, Masterful, Profound

See it if It's a complete artistic vision with great staging and acting and the lighting and set are exquisite. Great characters with great lines.

Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Great acting, Refreshing

See it if Chekhov updated and made accessible, with experimental theater and diverse casting that creates a complete artistic vision.

Don't see it if You really don’t like Chekhov or prefer a more classical rendition of his works.

See it if You like a story that moves along at a decent pace and does have some type of lesson for the audience.

Don't see it if You are easily distracted by a second cast signing above. You don't like stories that are too ambitious in their efforts to equalize.

Don't see it if You don't like a traditional musical with non-traditional casting and staging that requires you to suspend disbelief.

80
Great singing, Great staging, Resonant, Absorbing, Clever

85
Clever, Entertaining, Raunchy, Quirky, Overrated

See it if Good music and choreography with a decent historical story and a moral lesson.

Don't see it if It was a little slow to me toward the end and for me it certainly did not live up to all the hype that it has received.

91
Enchanting, Great staging, Edgy, Absorbing, Thought-provoking

Don't see it if You don’t like to see full-on nudity on stage that is not entirely necessary.

85
Clever, Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if You like cute musicals with already written songs sung by competent singers with a relevant and inspiring story.

Don't see it if You are offended by musicals that speak mostly to women and ignore men; you want original songs.

75
Great acting, Great staging, Masterful, Profound, Intense

See it if You like great acting and great staging, a show that makes you think with interesting dialogue.

Don't see it if You want a strong plot and don’t want to hear the same snippets of dialogue over and over; you want a first act that matches the second.

77
Great acting, Great staging, Quirky, Thought-provoking, Intense

See it if You like Edward Albee's plays and language, a minimalist set design, great acting, two one acts following each other.

Don't see it if You like more current work and you can't suspend disbelief on people's actions, you prefer a strong plot to language.

75
Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging, Thought-provoking, Intense

See it if You like historical dramas in Spanish, creative staging, sad endings with relevance.

Don't see it if You don't speak Spanish or don't like looking at the translations at the same time as trying to watch the play.

73
Great acting, Great singing, Great staging, Slow, Intense

See it if You like Mark Rylance and more of a classical story and text that unfolds very slowly but does have spectacle and is well-staged.

Don't see it if You like a face-paced story that is more modern. You don't like having to suspend belief a little bit despite being based on a true story.

56
Disappointing, Overrated, Romantic, Thought-provoking, Ambitious

See it if You don't mind an uneven but well-intentioned play that has some really great spots but some really disappointing ones as well.

Don't see it if You're going to be upset by listening to less than stellar singing in places and a story that doesn't quite hit it home.

81
Dated, Entertaining, Funny, Fluffy, Quirky

See it if You want to see what really was a pretty good movie done on the stage in a good and entertaining way but not quite as great as the movie.

65
Indulgent, Intense, Quirky, Slow, Thought-provoking

See it if you like 'slice of life' shows that are mostly conversations between characters who do zany things for no apparent reason.

Don't see it if you like an actual plot or want a good understanding of the odd actions and motivations of the characters or don't like to sit for 3 hrs

82
Clever, Enchanting, Edgy

Entertaining, Ambitious, Dated, Great staging, Masterful

See it if A good staging of the play with strong performances from each of the actresses. Overall entertaining and not too long.

Don't see it if I don't think it's one of Tennessee William's best plays and it's a bit slow and unbelievable in places.

73
Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Great staging, Great writing

See it if You like an evening of one acts which are quite humorous in places albeit a bit raunchy and while dealing with serious themes.

Don't see it if You want to immerse yourself in one play for the entire evening.

69
Dated, Disappointing, Indulgent, Overrated, Slow

See it if You like musicals with a homey feel that are more suited for a smaller house and have a simple story line.

Don't see it if You expect something sophisticated with smart, edgy songs instead of something that feels like a show you'd see at an amusement park.

90
Absorbing, Delightful, Enchanting, Great staging, Profound

See it if You like Pirandello in a new and interesting light with an excellent translation and a complete artistic vision.

Absorbing, Clever, Enchanting, Entertaining, Masterful

See it if You like a story with an edge that makes you think about things in a new light and makes you understand how history could be wrong.

Don't see it if You like a simple story and strong song and dance numbers. To me Wicked is driven more by the story than the music and dance.

For a previous production
Absorbing, Relevant, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Intense

See it if You want to get a better understanding of the world of an autistic person and how they interact with people.

See it if You like the history of this era and Harvey Milk and gay themes; you like a riveting ending.

85
Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Funny, Great staging

71
Ambitious, Enchanting, Indulgent, Overrated, Intense

See it if You like wandering through floors discovering scenes and actors while wearing a mask and remaining silent.

Don't see it if You regret paying exorbitant prices, not being given any background info and encountering pushy crowds; hearing that it used to be better.

59
Banal, Dated, Great acting, Slow, Profound

See it if You really like John Lithgow and think he can carry a Broadway show by himself, you find his quirky antics interesting and like storytelling

Don't see it if You like action and a fully developed story; you don't want to see all characters played by one actor, as imaginative as they may be.

67
Entertaining, Fluffy, Romantic, Epic, Ambitious

See it if You love classic Disney movies later staged with all the same great songs brought to life.

Don't see it if You can't afford anything but the balcony; it's cramped and the view is a bit obstructed at times.

72
Entertaining, Raunchy, Quirky, Fluffy, Edgy

See it if You like musicals with an edge that cover topics that are not entirely mainstream; you like glitz and glamour.

Don't see it if You don't like the music of Cyndi Lauper, you are a bit of a prude, you like more of a traditional musical.

Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Indulgent, Quirky

See it if Kids will be enchanted by the bubbles both on stage and those that come right up to your seats. Plus kids get to go up onstage.

Don't see it if you're not young at heart. Most of the show is various bubble creations and while some are clever and fascinating, there's not much else.
