Great writing, Great staging, Great acting, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you are looking to see a fine cast do a great job on a relevant play. Well directed on a great set Laurie Metcalf is a national treasure

Don't see it if Political plays bore you but this is so much more. Also its 90 minutes no intermission so if that's not your idea of a play don't go

See it if you are looking for a 70 year old play that is still relevant Well acted and directed

Great acting, Great singing, Great staging, Cliched, Disappointing

See it if you want an evening with a fine cast that rises above a merely good score. Sets and projections are great. Worth it for Kate Baldwin alone

Don't see it if you want a big brassy musical with a chorus. I saw a preview so the score might change by opening

Disappointing, Excruciating, Banal, Bad score, Good set

See it if The ape is the only reason to see this. Bad score, mediocre dancing, 2nd rate leads. The set is not bad. all told you do better at Disney

Don't see it if you want a show with a first rate score, dancing and singing.This is more an excuse for the ape puppet (which is good) than a musical

Banal, Disappointing, Excruciating, Indulgent, Insipid

See it if There is NO reason. The singers have no idea of the songs, their voices, while good are wrong for the selections. WAY overproduced
