If you like this person's taste, follow him or her!
See it if you like the show or haven't seen it before. I saw it with Lea and didn't think anyone else could live up to her. Wrong. Eva is incredible.
Don't see it if you dislike older musicals (the music is a bit dated even with the recent lyric changes and new song for Ellen).
See it if You want a more low-key show that highlights amazing actors and a fantastic script. The cast is phenomenal. Charming production.
Don't see it if You prefer a flashy show. The set comprises a bunch of chairs and a wooden backdrop. But this show doesn't need the glam and glitz.
See it if Cynthia Nixon and Laura Linney are stellar in this show. Based on what I saw and reviews, I recommend trying to see LL in the Regina role.
Don't see it if you are impatient or have a lacking attention span. It's conversation-driven, long (two intermissions), and has only one setting.
See it if you liked the original or want to see a stellar cast. I didn't like the music and found the show dreadfully boring, but the cast was great.
Don't see it if The show is slow and I wish I had saved the money from the ticket to catch it on PBS when (if) it airs. The cast was top-notch, though.
See it if you liked the movie, you want a light, fun evening at the theater, or you are a Sara B. fan (FYI I'm not and still loved this one).
Don't see it if Right now, skip if you don't like Sara and wait until Betsy takes over. I predict she'll shine in this role.
See it if You have teens, you liked 13 Reasons Why, or you have ever felt like an outsider. This show is beautiful and will stay with you. Ben Platt!
Don't see it if You prefer old-school, classic shows. This show has a contemporary look and sound. But give it a chance!
See it if I love the movie, and I love Phillipa Soo, but this show just didn't do it for me. There were some cute scenes, but it was mostly boring.
Don't see it if You like the movie. You will be sorely disappointed.
See it if you enjoy seeing a talented cast, inc. Tony winner Cynthia Ervivo, tackle serious social issues through an energetic and emotional score
Don't see it if you dislike gospel music, have difficulty with a storyline that addresses racism, misogyny, and domestic abuse and that has sexual innuendos
See it if you want to see a small production that requires little thought. Amber Tamblyn makes sitting through this otherwise boring show worth it.
Don't see it if you prefer fast-moving, flashy productions. Also, don't be fooled by "dark humor" label. This show is not very funny.
See it if Cheating a bit bc I saw the NYCC production, BUT JG and AA really make the show. Even if you don't love Sondheim, you can appreciate this.
Don't see it if you want a fast-paced musical, like Dear Evan Hansen. This is more beautiful and resonate than flashy.
See it if you like the flashy productions Disney is known for. Also, it's cool seeing the Jafar who voiced the character in the movie. Little cheesy.
Don't see it if you haven't already seen Lion King — take the kids to that one instead. It's more expensive but a better show.
See it if You like Glenn, who showcased the best stage acting I've ever seen. her voice isn't what it used to be, but she's still great.
Don't see it if If you dislike Glenn, don't bother. The rest of the cast is only OK, and the music sounds more like TV jingles than a Bway score.
See it if you love Bette and/or classic Broadway. It's an old show and could have seemed dated, but the choreography played on that and made it work.
Don't see it if Everyone should see it—it's great!
See it if you enjoy larger-than-life family-friendly theater, with big ballads, flashy scenery, and strong female leads.
Don't see it if You like a quieter, subtler theater experience or are uncomfortable with large groups of tourists.
