See it if You want to see a new musical that is outside the box, with a talented young cast and a lot of great songs!

Don't see it if You want a typical musical or do not like to see new shows.

Don't see it if you want a typical night at Broadway, you do not like rap or modern music, you do not want to have fun!

See it if You want a fun night at the theater. This made me laugh all night. Santino was unreal and deserved Tony. The music is very clever.

Don't see it if You don't want to see a man play a woman. You want to walk out humming songs, this is not that show.

Intelligent, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You love the book or want to see an amazing work of art on stage. This took my breath away. Celia K & Jeff D were amazing. Privilege to see!

Don't see it if You don't like serious plays, although a lot of laughs too. Can't handle a serious subject matter from our past.

Must see, Great staging, Entertaining

See it if You even remotely like Harry Potter and want to see 6 hours of wonderful theater. The staging and sspecial effects are superb. I gasped!

Don't see it if You don’t know Harry Potter at all. You don’t want to see two shows in one day.

Dated, Fluffy, Delightful

See it if You love the cast like me, Kelli! Will! Love the songs. Some great large numbers like Too Darn Hot!

Don't see it if You want something fresh and new. The first act was fun. The second act was silly.

Absorbing, Delightful, Enchanting, Refreshing

See it if you want a special day at the theater where every seat is great and you are in the middle of the action. You want to be involved in the show

Don't see it if you don't like folktales/stories or when the actors are singing/acting next to you. This show was one of the best surprises in years!

Fluffy, Great singing, Overrated

See it if You love Donna Summer or LaChanze

Don't see it if You do not love Donna Summer. Songs are fun but the plot is slow, it does not pick up. 90 minutes seems VERY long.

Entertaining, Enchanting, Overrated

See it if You love the movie and want to see the movie, only the movie.

Don't see it if You want substance. You don't have children. Theater filled with babies and kids of all ages- talking, singing, crying. Hard to hear.

Disappointing, Slow, Overrated

See it if You love the movie but only in Act 1. Act 1 was hilarious and clever. Act 2 developed minor characters and was very slow.

Don't see it if You hate the movie. Want to see something new and thought provoking.

Great singing, Resonant, Intense

See it if you loved the original, want to cry, love ballads and all singing. Eva Noblezada is as good as Lea Salonga s Kim!

Don't see it if you don't want to cry, don't like the original, and don't like all singing. Very sad ending. Original was a little more riveting.

Don't see it if you are a man...This is a play with music. Interesting story but no big numbers or memorable songs. No wow moments.
