See it if you like rock-and-roll, great singing, and a fun time
Don't see it if you don't like any of the above.
See it if you want to see a show that cast a nonbinary person and a two-soul person for trans roles. :D

Don't see it if you don't like shows that are about feminism or cross-generational dialogue.
See it if you like shows that look at death and near-death.
Don't see it if you want a lot of action and entertainment. It gets a bit lost in thought at some points.
See it if you want to see amazing opera singers doing a Jerry Springer Show. If you need a laugh, or enjoy some irreverent humor. It's a good time!
Don't see it if you are not open to some blasphemous humor. Or if you don't like British-style humor. Or if you don't like Jerry Springer.
See it if you like Annie Baker's earlier works, or if you like a show purely about storytelling. It starts sane and slowly becomes surreal.
Don't see it if you don't like weird, surreal happenings, or if you need a clear point or conclusion. You won't get any of that with this show.
See it if you like seeing new work that deals with issues of what-if and somewhat apocalyptic ideas. Or if you like small shows in small spaces.
Don't see it if you like decent characters, or rounded characters, or character development. The main characters were boring, and the plot was not developed
See it if you enjoy plays about history. Or if you want a lesbian couple being shown just living their lives, with normal conflicts and conversation!
Don't see it if you don't like homosexuality. Or women's rights. Or revolution.
See it if you like dark stories with very impressive acting that draw you in, horrify you, and make you think. Really worth seeing.
Don't see it if TRIGGER WARNING: there is sex with a minor depicted onstage. Sexual content with teens also depicted onstage. Definitely Rated R.
See it if you want to see an adaptation of a play from the 1500s, using modern language and a very different approach to actor roles and staging.
Don't see it if you don't like atypical staging, acting, or experiences. Or if you have problems with strobes and fog effects (it's only a 5 min sequence).
See it if you like retellings of old stories. It takes Rime of the Ancient Mariner and makes it easier to understand and connect with.
Don't see it if you don't like projections, fog, or strobe effects. Or swearing. He swears like a sailor. Can get a bit slow in places.
See it if you want to see a musical with a non-traditional ending. It's a fun show, some good laughs, and the theatre is very intimate.
Don't see it if you don't like musicals.
See it if you want to see something different. It makes you think, and it is not for everyone, but it is very interesting.
Don't see it if you are triggered by people struggling to breathe. There is a significant amount of gasping for breath at one point.
See it if you want to see a great play, with an amazing cast of women all playing a single woman character through time.
Don't see it if you don't like plays that are out of chronological order. *I found it really absorbing, but that's me*
See it if you saw Frozen the movie and want to see a fun, Disney musical version with new songs and very cool special effects.
Don't see it if you don't like sharing a space with a lot of children of all ages and their parents/grandparents.
See it if you like watching good directing in action. It's not action packed, but it deserves the standing ovations it has received night after night.
Don't see it if you need a lot of action, have issues with sexual conversations, or dislike long monologues.
See it if you like off-the-wall theatre that is very active and makes you really pay attention to try and figure out what's happening.
Don't see it if you don't like Twilight Zone-esque plots. It got a little weird and confusing for sure.

Don't see it if you don't like swearing, or if you don't like prison-based plot-lines.
See it if you like a good story about people and relationships. The characters were interesting. It made me question my understanding of behaviors.
Don't see it if you don't like nudity (brief as it is), homosexuality, or shows without intermissions.
See it if you like short, one-man shows that are pure storytelling. A sweet look at the relationship between granddad and grandson.
Don't see it if you don't like one-man shows, small venues, or a lack of action. It's a story. The stage is tiny. The set is minimal.
See it if you like a perfect use of silence onstage, and incredible acting of very personal moments in a life. So much trust between cast and patrons.
Don't see it if you dislike character development and personal moments being depicted onstage.
See it if you want a play that looks at death in a very different way. It's a celebration of life, and coming to an understanding about mortality.
Don't see it if you need an action-packed play. It gets slow in places, but there is a reason! Stay to the end!
See it if you want an incredible set of actors telling an engaging and emotional story set in 1977 Pittsburgh. I'm not doing it justice. See below.
Don't see it if you don't like staged violence. A gun is shown but not used, and the vernacular takes a minute to get an ear for, but that's really it.
See it if you love percussion and amazing dancing. The dancers interact with the audience, the experience is incredible! So much fun!
Don't see it if you are startled by loud noises.
See it if you are from NYC and ride the MTA often. This show is full of inside jokes that only people who deal with the MTA are going to understand.
Don't see it if you're looking for something with depth. Or if you aren't a MTA rider. Or if you don't like Acapella.
See it if you have any interest in race relations in the context of S. African apartheid. This show is super relevant to US race relations as well.
Don't see it if you don't like conflict. Or if you want a clearly happy ending.
