See it if You love the 80's and dark humor and dark intrigue. Awesome score and arrangements. Ben Walker was sublime. Affected 80's dialect-terrific.

Don't see it if Rated R. Violent, graphic adult scenes, and bloody. But if you can tolerate that, the surprise ending is satisfying.

Anastasia (NYC)

Banal, Disappointing, Romantic

See it if You are looking for a juvenile, cartoon like princess tale come to life. It might be good for very young audiences.

Don't see it if You seek a great book-an exciting take that takes you in unexpected arcs. Costumes, staging, perfamances beautiful...but book lacking.

Also The music, although beautifully performed is not terribly memorable. I... Read more Read less

Cliched, Clever, Great staging

See it if You love Tina Fey. Her essence is stamped all over this. Loved the kinetic, energized staging. Taylor Louderman is a star in this show.

Don't see it if You don’t like the movie, you don’t like SNL and you were never a geek in high school.

Also Sometimes it feels like an SNL skit and sometimes it feels like it jus... Read more Read less

See it if You like a bubblegum story that loosely guides the action so the company can add cirque tricks.

See it if You like stories about redemption. And if you like folksy music.

Don't see it if If great actors portraying southerners with shrill over the top accents and twang gets on your nerves. 1st act slow-2nd act great.
