See it if you want to bring the kids to a delightful and engaging first theater experience or if nostalgia for Winnie the Pooh is up your alley.

Don't see it if charming puppetry and classic Pooh humor won’t be entertaining enough for you, or you can’t tolerate kids in the audience being kids.

See it if you enjoy light dramas about relationships, families, dealing with secrets and trauma and healing, and singing! Can we say "Hallelujah!"

Don't see it if you aren't ready to lean forward into shared family drama of every type, or if you refuse to know what happens in a "churched" family.

Also I have enjoyed Jennifer Fouché's (u/s Baneatta) performances over the ... Read more Read less

See it if The young women LOVE the six wives! This is a dance fest, a concert, and just super fun. Dress up!

Don't see it if you are looking for a serious history lesson. This is all British tongue in cheek.

See it if you are an Alanis fan. The cast, including the ensemble, really brought the music to life in a meaningful, relevant story.

Don't see it if you don't appreciate current issues, told in a brutal, in-your-face manner.

See it if you are ready to open your mind, shine a light on misogynistic tropes and realize who can actual save us! Beautifully adapted for today.

Don't see it if classic means to you: keep it the same old black-and-white way your grandma always said it should be and stay.

See it if you need to believe in the goodness in humanity, and Canadians!

Don't see it if the topic of all that happened on 9/11 is to traumatizing. It is sad. But this show is so uplifting, it will make you feel better.

See it if you loved the Gogo's music, classic comedy themes and a modern love story, with a touch of Monty Python humor.

Don't see it if you are a judgmental curmudgeon

See it if you are an avid Vonnegut reader and understand his writing. Appreciate a modern tale of a classic, with the consequences of male stupidity.

Don't see it if you can't stand conflict, absurdity or things that are not neatly wrapped up like a birthday cake for a cute girl with a green balloon.

See it if you enjoy a New York story, and are a fan of the film. The singing and dancing were really good!

Don't see it if you've already seen West Side Story and every other NY neighborhood coming of age show.

See it if you enjoy an American story of ambition and deceit, with jaw-dropping razzle-dazzle choreography and fabulous singing.

See it if you love Lin-Manuel Miranda's first major show. The singing and acting shines over the minimalist staging. You will be dancing for days!

Don't see it if you're afraid to be in Harlem. Don't be afraid. Serioiusly. Have a slice at Patsy's before the show and enjoy!

See it if you are ready for a fun romp, an irreverent teasing of the status quo. I am still mystified by the spectacular costume change in one number

Don't see it if you've never seen South Park and don't get its humor. Parker and Stone are two of a kind, not for everyone.

See it if you enjoy a classic tale, beautifully told. Elton John's music and the creative costuming have become a classic must-see. Bring tissues.

Don't see it if you didn't like the film.

See it if you love hilarity and the unexpected. Charming cast and a Tony-winning set: you will leave the theater wondering HOW DID THEY DO THAT?!?

Don't see it if you have no sense of humor at all. Also, there's no singing, not that you'd miss it.

See it if you want to experience something completely new and engaging. The singing is gorgeous, the set is immersive and the ensemble is astounding!
