Entertaining, Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Great staging, Great acting

See it if The thought of the actors learning the show in another language impressed you. Even if you know the show you don't.

Don't see it if If the thought of not knowing what they are saying and reading subtitles turns you off, don't go.

Refreshing, Hilarious, Great staging, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You enjoyed the movie, but don't expect the play to be a carbon copy. If you like the music in Full Monty, The Band's Visit,...

Don't see it if You liked the movie and wouldn't change a thing.

Clever, Great staging, Edgy

See it if You are a fan of the movie . Also if you are a fan of the stylized approach of the 80s. See if you are taken in by Benjamin Walker.

Don't see it if If you're faint of heart, dislike blood or shocked by language and sex.

Clever, Edgy, Thought-provoking

See it if You're ready for a new spin on an old friend. Be ready to first feel disappointed, but to then feel as though you now have seen the light.

Don't see it if You are not open to change. All the same words, but said in a much different way.
