Don't see it if you're stuffy or just want song and dance from your theater. You won't leave with overwhelming joy, just incredibly moved.

See it if You liked Matilda and Curious Incident and wonder what it would be like to merge the two. You want a lot of heart in your musicals.
Don't see it if You expect something groundbreaking. It's sweet but the score is weak. Watch the movie right before or you may be lost.
See it if You like classic Broadway theater with the amazing Bette at the helm. Huge set pieces, a strong chorus, and stunning production values- see!

Don't see it if you expect Broadway caliber writing to be on Broadway.
