Don't see it if Stories of the internment camps depress you. However this would be extremely informative and as an immigrant I could relate to a lot of it.

Also Kimi takes storytelling to an entire new level. She is able to touch o... Read more Read less

See it if You like a sense of mystery, and literary political fiction and missed reading the amazing book.

Don't see it if You don't like ideology stuff and political oppression. This is not a light, entertaining work. It is intense and draws you in.

Also Stellar acting, loved the effective way surveillance and invasion of p... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Great staging, Delightful, Great singing

See it if you like good choreography, beautiful costumes, awesome sets.

Don't see it if You are a romantic and expect to see strong chemistry between Anna and the King. she was too matronly to evoke romantic illusions.

Great singing, Banal, Dated, Overrated, Fluffy

See it if You like the oldies, and an intimate setting appeals to you, and A one woman show interspersed with raunchy jokes or anecdotes.

Don't see it if You expect the selection of songs to be modern. It's old style singing and staging. Except for one,none of the songs were familiar to me.

Also I wish she would dump the anecdotes. The jokes fell flat. She has a gr... Read more Read less

Don't see it if you don't want to be misled with titles like the much loved Chokher Bali and 'Devdas' No connection. I left absolutely confused.

Also I came with great expectations. Left after Devdas, disappointed. Shiva... Read more Read less
