Relevant, Intelligent, Great staging, Great acting, Absorbing

Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Profound, Moving

See it if Love Sondheim and great art, want to see some great performances, want to be moved, can enjoy a sometimes dissonant but beautiful score.

Don't see it if Need catchy tunes and dance to enjoy a show, want to see something brainless and shallow, don't like Sondheim.

Absorbing, Delightful, Exquisite, Profound, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy a great story with beautiful melodies.

Cliched, Disappointing, Great singing

See it if you like silly romantic comedies, don't mind if the plot is plausible or only need one nice tune to make a show worth going to.

Don't see it if you want an engaging and tuneful score with clever lyrics, a story that makes sense and has some depth beyond the obvious.

Also I went to this show based on the youtube recording of its final song, ... Read more Read less
