Great staging, Great singing, Great acting, Delightful

See it if You like very talented, unknowns, exceptional staging and a strong script/score in an off-Broadway venue.

Don't see it if You just want to see TV stars on stage.

Intelligent, Hilarious, Quirky, Clever, Delightful

See it if In a tiny theater, a group of extraordinary character actors present some pieces from Sholom Aleichem. This is a gem.

Don't see it if You don't like Yiddish theater. You do like splashy Broadway renditions of TV shows.

Masterful, Must see, Great singing, Entertaining, Refreshing

See it if You want to see very talented people deliver a beautifully re-imagined production of a gorgeous opera.

Don't see it if You want to see a TV star in a comic book story.

Delightful, Romantic, Great singing, Clever, Great acting

See it if You want to enjoy talented artists tell their story in words and song. Was VERY strong, very enjoyable, I recommend it.

Don't see it if You want to schlep uptown into the Times Square crush,pay crazy prices to be smushed into baby seats and see a revival or TV show onstage.

Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging, Enchanting

See it if A charming show with a very strong cast. It's what off-B'way should be. However, I did expect more and better music from Stephen Schwartz

Don't see it if You can't stand to have any changes to a Shakespeare play.

Delightful, Great acting, Great staging, Great writing, Intelligent

See it if You like tight, smart writing and wonderfully developed characters.

Don't see it if You're looking for a big Broadway, splashy musical with a lot of stars.

Also I've been keeping an eye on writer Itamar Moses ever since I saw the g... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Slow, Overrated, Disappointing, Great staging

See it if You want to be "wowed" by spectacular sets and lighting.

Don't see it if You require drama in your drama. Too much focus on environment and not enough on character or plot development.

Bad acting.

See it if You've never seen the classic, wonderful movie. It's a good story. Also, the integration of cameras and screens was great and worked well.

Don't see it if You can't tolerate bad acting. There were a few exceptions. You hate audience participation. You loved the movie.

Overrated, Great acting, Slow, Disappointing, Good cast

See it if You have a relative in the cast. You love a period piece so much you need to see the sets and costumes. You like great, ensemble acting.

Don't see it if You're someone who falls asleep easily.

Confusing, Edgy, Quirky, Disappointing, Intense

See it if You like avant garde. You like a lot of energy and enthusiasm but are okay with a very non-traditional script.

Don't see it if You will be frustrated by not understanding the words. It's hard to follow.

Riveting, Relevant, Masterful, Must see, Thought-provoking

See it if You want to hear the actual words of the witnesses. This is "VERBATIM" theater which uses the words directly from the Grand Jury testimony.

Don't see it if You don't want to hear something that may challenge a strongly-held belief.

Delightful, Enchanting, Great acting

See it if You love the music of the era and Carole King's music in particular.

Don't see it if You hate that kind of music.

Also Fantastic show for your out-of-town guests.

Entertaining

See it if The show was terrific. I saw it just as it opened.

Don't see it if You are a public figure w/political views that don't align with those of the cast. I'm ashamed of NYC after the cast's treatment of Pence
