Don't see it if you don't appreciate an all-female cast. are squeamish as a "corpse" is on stage, in the background, the entire time.
See it if you want to be provoked into thinking how women's rights in the workplace have been trampled for a long time. It's a boy's club.
Don't see it if you want to be entertained not engaged. No music, no margaritas here. What is loyalty? and to what should we be loyal?

Don't see it if you are antsy. Parts I and II are 4 hours each. Fortunately, there are two intermissions in each part.

See it if You love Steinman's (Meat Loaf) music. Lena Hall is wonderful. The presentation of "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" is delightful.

See it if You believe that "The Great Gatsby" is the Great American novel. & if you have a day to commit to it. It lasts nearly 10 hrs (with breaks).
Don't see it if You are not a fan of F. Scott Fitzgerald. The cast reads and interprets The Great Gatsby, so if you know the novel, there are no spoilers.

Don't see it if You are uncomfortable with May/December relationships, or homosexuality.
