See it if You’re a Cher fan. It has all her hits, it has Sonny...it showcases her music & her personality, let’s not forget all her fabulous costumes!

See it if You love Alice in Wonderland, a great soundcheck, burlesque! Tastefully done, incredible singing & great song choices!

Don't see it if Your a boring prude who doesn’t like modern music or is uncomfortable w nudity. Or asthmatic as it is a bit smoky in the theater.

Cats
Midtown W
Great staging, Great acting

See it if u enjoy musical. Reminiscent of the old show but changed since the original. Was fun to watch but not a must see.

Don't see it if U need lots of dialogue or a plot to follow. Altho there is a story told, it's a bit hard to understand them. Second act is def the best.

See it if You are a Pacino fan. It's about two 45 minute acts of dialogue. There is 1 other actor w a few lines to break up the monotony. It's Mamet!
