If you like this person's taste, follow her!
See it if You want to keep the extremely hard working ensemble employed. They’re giving all they have!
Don't see it if It feels like everything AND the kitchen sink was tossed on the stage all at once. Bit head shaking.
See it if What theater is meant to be. Truly absorbing multi-layered stories. You could see it many times & still discover something new.
Don't see it if You are concerned about the 100% truthfulness of the historic material.
See it if You enjoy Christian Borle and a future Tony award nominee F. Michael Haynie (Augustus Gloop). Haynie stole the 1st act and Borle the 2nd.
Don't see it if You can't sit through a somewhat slow paced 1st act to get to an excellent 2nd act. Can't go wrong with oompaloompas and dancing squirrels
See it if You want to see Sutton Foster embody Charity. Remarkable actress. Her face alone tells the story.
Don't see it if You expect the full blown Fosse experience. Small, intimate staging focused fully on Charity.
See it if Acting, most particularly Scout, is superb. Great ensemble.
Don't see it if you expect Sorkin’s super sharp repartee. The material doesn’t call for it. Having said that, you can’t improve on Harper Lee!
See it if You love all the actors and want to appreciate how far we’ve come since this play first came out.
Don't see it if While there were so many great actors, play didn’t allow them all to shine. May be disappointed in not seeing all actors given more to do.
See it if You admire great staging. Ranked right up there with Matilda in stage craft. Rippling light effects superb. Chimney fun.
Don't see it if While the individual actors were great, particularly Harry Sr, the chemistry between the actors was a bit lacking. Plus a bit long.
See it if You like Harry Potter (duh) and want to see a cast that appears to be having a great deal of fun. Fun watching them have fun.
Don't see it if You haven't read the books.
See it if You enjoy seeing a stage full of performers all operating at the top of their game. True ensemble cast wonderfully directed.
Don't see it if You don't like musicals.
See it if You want to laugh out loud a lot. One of the funniest, but also at times sadly moving, stories. Super clever staging. Wonderful acting.
Don't see it if You need to approve of all the characters's actions.
See it if You want to see a classic old time musical. Midler & DHP simply bring it. Costumes fantastic. Fun watching audience respond to Bette.
Don't see it if You want to see a modern play.
See it if You want to see a master class in acting. Can't say enough about the entire ensemble. Plus the stage and costume designs were perfect.
Don't see it if You need to see a modern play.
See it if You want to sit on stage and see the actors up close. Interesting to read their faces so close. Feel part of the play.
Don't see it if You expect a bit more of a story. Simple but nice slice of life.
See it if You want to laugh out loud. Super fun. All performers were magnificent particularly the little boy. Though Stephanie Block stole the show
Don't see it if You want a slow paced show.
See it if You enjoy original staging embracing a novel concept.
Don't see it if You don't like mice.
