See it if you know the play or not. The gender swap works well. Matt Doyle's Jamie is worth the price of admission by itself LuPone is amazing

Don't see it if you are not a fan of the show or are offended by seeing two men kiss

West Side Story
Midtown W
Intelligent, Romantic, Clever, Great singing, Great staging

See it if you're a fan of the show. The score alone is worth a 75. The staging relies a lot on projections of the action Sometimes confusing.

Don't see it if you don't like the show are not a fan of the director. He uses a lot of the techniques he used in Network

Disappointing, Confusing, Slow, Relevant, Great acting

See it if you are very interested in the history of the Johnson administration. Its more of a history lesson than a play. the cast is excellent
