Profound, Intense, Great acting, Absorbing, Ambitious

See it if You're ready to get uncomfortable and hear truth about a terrible genocide. You like 1-man shows acted masterfully, each character nuanced.

Don't see it if Disturbing content triggers you or you're unable to sit still for 70 miss. Lots of noisy audience members during the silences in the script.

Absorbing, Delightful, Great writing, Relevant, Dizzying

See it if You're truly interested in what it's like to be a writer/editor/fact-checker! This is it: the real deal! And so witty.

Don't see it if You want something fast-paced rather than fast-talking, or are expecting deep, complex character backgrounds.

91
Ambitious, Entertaining, Great staging, Quirky, Refreshing

See it if You're ready to immerse yourself and ACT! You can only make this a fun time if you focus on being your character-- the puzzles come 2nd.

Don't see it if You're not into participation, you cannot suspend disbelief, or you don't want to be on your feet for two hours.

During previews
Entertaining, Ambitious, Clever

See it if You’d like to see something clever, apropos, and intelligent that had the whole crowd laughing the whole way through. Fresh & funny!

Don't see it if You’re not easily upset by critique: he really takes it out of red and blue states and POVs equally, but never very harshly or unjustly.

Absorbing, Riveting, Thought-provoking, Intense, Quirky

See it if you're into avant-garde theatre. It's a one-man show that takes interesting twists and leads you into the dark path loneliness can take.

Don't see it if you want something high-budget. It's a speaking piece, long, narrative, up close. Triggering for people uncomfortable with suicide.

95
Delightful, Entertaining, Great singing, Refreshing, Must see

See it if You want a show that has it all: humor, heart, heartbreak, character growth, and powerhouse numbers.

Don't see it if ...see it. You should surely see it.

Dizzying, Ambitious, Great acting, Edgy, Profound

See it if you loved the book, love great acting, and can stomach relevant but rough scenes.

Don't see it if you are extremely disturbed by on-stage "torture" scenes; it gets very horrifically distressing.

80
Clever, Funny, Quirky, Hilarious, Entertaining

See it if You like gag jokes mixed with intelligent, spot-on humor and a bit of NY charm.

Don't see it if Puppets are not your thing.

Intelligent, Intense, Profound, Resonant, Delightful

See it if You want to see older actors really strutting their stuff! I was so impressed by the range of the cast,& a few of the actors were FLAWLESS!

Don't see it if You're expecting something ultra-professional. There's only one set, the set changes are very slow/obvious, & some of the acting is weak.

90
Absorbing, Great acting, Edgy, Intense, Must see

See it if You want a show full of flawed but oh-so-human and compelling characters charting the difficulties of real life: 0% watered down.

Don't see it if Only don't see it if you're triggered by (spoiler) self-harm-related material, or cannot watch blinking screens.

85
Funny, Quirky

See it if You want to see something new & vibrant & unusual that deals with serious topics in mental health & race relations but has dancing corpses.

Don't see it if You want a linear plot line or storylines that really finish for each individual character. Or if you’re triggered by content like suicide.

70
Funny, Fluffy, Epic, Dated, Entertaining

See it if you want classic Broadway with a few powerhouse voices and some great dancing, costumes, and sets. Cute numbers.

Don't see it if you're invested in plot (there isn't much of one) or characters (not explored deeply), or if you expect Bette not to be very hoarse/tired.

78
Funny, Clever, Great acting, Great writing, Quirky

See it if You want a good time. Not a very deep musical, but witty and well-acted.

Don't see it if You have strong opinions about religion.

51
Dated, Great singing, Slow, Romantic, Overrated

See it if You're having a date night, or want to see the famous song preformed live.

Don't see it if You already know the story or don't enjoy slow musicals. The story doesn't carry it, the vocals however just might.

52
Ambitious, Great staging, Overrated, Disappointing, Slow

See it if You intend to go for the beautiful costumes, colourful sets, and outstanding dancing. Or, if you have a child who really wants to see it.

Don't see it if You're expecting powerful voices. The additional songs are weak and slow the pacing down.

85
Funny, Great singing, Quirky, Raunchy, Relevant

See it if You're interested in LGBTQ or just open to a good time!

Don't see it if You're close-minded or mind fake British accents.
