See it if you can get tickets! I recommend listening to the cast album before you go if you can. It can be overwhelming.

Don't see it if you don't like musicals/rapping. The entire show is sung through with no dialogue, so if that's not your thing, let someone else go!!

Thought provoking, Delightful, Entertaining, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you want to see a musical that makes you think. This show is about someone who feels invisible, which is something everyone has experienced.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy teen drama. The protagonist is in high school as are most of his friends. They are dealing with real issues, but set in HS.
