Absorbing, Refreshing, Great acting, Great singing, Great staging

See it if you want to see an uplifting, unconventional musical with an amazingly talented cast.

Don't see it if you prefer big-budget musicals, or if the subject of 9/11 is too sensitive for you to enjoy a musical surrounding the events of that day.

Also I was a bit familiar with the background story and was curious to see ... Read more Read less

See it if You want to really have an EXPERIENCE. The unconventional staging is a lot of fun, and the sets are absolutely gorgeous.

Entertaining, Absorbing, Refreshing, Great singing

See it if you’re a fan of Carole King’s music. There were a lot of songs in the show that I didn’t realize were written by her and her husband!

Also I enjoyed this show way more than I thought I would. I didn’t know muc... Read more Read less

See it if you live in NYC (or have at some point) and enjoy a cappella and "Love Actually."

Don't see it if you don't know who Dr. Zizmor is. The jokes are very NYC specific.
