Funny, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if you're a fan of show-stopping numbers by Andrew Lloyd Webber. Loved seeing him speak on video about the songs and shows. He's quite funny!

Don't see it if You hate ALW or tribute shows (although this is more than a tribute because ALW narrates on video).

Also The singers were phenomenal! Broadway caliber all the way.

Delightful, Ambitious, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you like Star Wars, or even if you don't. There were enough references that even a casual fan will enjoy it. The songs were quite hilarious!

Don't see it if you're expecting a professionally produced musical. Yes it's downright silly and amateurish but that's part of the fun!

Entertaining, Great singing

See it if you're a fan of Be More Chill. The singing and dancing are both fabulous. It will appeal especially to teens and LGBT audience members.

Don't see it if you're triggered by talk of ECT.

See it if you want to hear great songs by Cole Porter sung by the inimitable Kelli O'Hara. Will Chase and Corbin Bleu also impressive!

Don't see it if you don't have an appreciation for a classic show with classic songs.

See it if you have little kids. They will be in awe at the amazing things that can be done with bubbles! Sit close if you can!

Don't see it if you have lost the wonder of being a child.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Hilarious, Must see

See it if you want to laugh until you pee! The songs are incredibly well-written and the show is hilarious!

Don't see it if you're easily offended at jokes about God; there are many. I would have scored 100 but the 2nd time I saw it, the lead actor phoned it in.

Absorbing, Enchanting, Great singing, Exquisite, Riveting

See it if you can get good seats. I wasn't a fan the first time sitting in back. Saw it front row w/ Norm Lewis & Sierra Boggess. It was perfection!

Don't see it if you have a fear of falling chandeliers. (spoiler alert!)

Delightful, Funny, Great singing, Entertaining, Fluffy

See it if you're in the mood for a cute show. Katharine McPhee has a beautiful voice and did a great job with the songs.

Don't see it if you're hooked on the movie version. While Katharine McPhee is a great singer, I didn't feel her acting was up to par.

Delightful, Funny, Entertaining, Great acting, Must see

See it if you love all these delightful songs you've known all your life. The singing was impeccable and Norbert Leo Butz was hysterically funny!

Don't see it if you don't want to see slight changes/updates to the original story.

Thought-provoking, Relevant, Refreshing, Great writing, Clever

See it if You want to feel uplifted by the kindness that still exists in other human beings. I thought this show would be sad but it was inspirational

Don't see it if you're expecting big name performers. I liked the fact that there were no familiar faces in the cast. It made it all the more real.

Great staging, Relevant, Clever

See it if you love innovative staging, great choreography and the music of this classic show.

Don't see it if you want a copy of the movie. Truthfully, I expected to be disappointed but I thought this show was quite riveting.

Overrated, Disappointing

See it if you've seen the movie or previous incarnations of this story and have enjoyed it. I usually like works by Sam Shepard but not this time.

Don't see it if you want characters that you care anything about. The story was confusing and seemed to go nowhere.

Great staging, Great acting, Delightful

See it if you like dark humor and inventive stage techniques, small theaters and man-eating plants! Oh, and Christian Borle. He was a hoot!

Don't see it if you're a fuddy duddy! Why would anyone pass up a chance to see this show?

Great staging, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You love clever songs, incredible staging and a bit of mystery and intrigue. And you love pie!

Don't see it if You don't like a little blood and murder with your musicals.

Relevant, Must see, Intense

See it if you know a teen or have ever been one who struggled to fit in. Heartbreaking but relevant. At times uplifting. But bring your tissues!

Don't see it if the themes of drugs, depression or teenage suicide are too much for you to handle. Or if you just don't like modern musicals.

Don't see it if you're easily offended by simulated puppet sex.

Delightful, Enchanting, Great singing, Must see, Entertaining

See it if you love clever songs, gorgeous vocals a riveting storyline and some really neat stage techniques.

Don't see it if you don't love fantasy, or you're so tied to the movie version of The Wizard of Oz that you can't open your mind to this backstory.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great singing, Great staging

See it if you like an upbeat musical that's also touching and downright fun, and if you love outrageous footwear. Also, Billy Porter was perfection!

Don't see it if you're not open-minded about the LGBT community. Wait - that's when you should see it! So go now! Before it closes!!!

Exquisite, Great acting, Great writing, Relevant, Absorbing

See it if you want to see great acting by the masterful Elaine May. The rest of the cast was top notch as well.

Don't see it if you're looking for a lot of action or plot twists. It's a simple story about life and family and the realities of aging.

Absorbing, Great staging, Great writing, Riveting, Intense

See it if you like tragic Irish plays, as I do. The writing was impeccable and the cast couldn't have been more suited to each role.

Don't see it if you're not prepared to spend 3.5 hours in the theater. Many older people complained about the length, which they should have known going in.

See it if I thought Eva Noblezada was incredible and I was blown away by Jon Jon Briones. I didn't know the story beforehand and was moved to tears.

Don't see it if you're bringing children. I was surprised at how many young children were in the audience. It's a bit too racy for them in my opinion.
