Don't see it if If you are expecting it to be life changing or do not already have an appreciation for the music
See it if You have a pulse
Don't see it if You really really can't stand rap. I'm not a fan, but this is still an incredible masterpiece of a show. But if you really really cant, dont
See it if You love 80s music. It's energetic, upbeat, and a lot of fun. The plot is ok and the characters enjoyable. This show is all about the music.
Don't see it if You are looking for a children's show. There are many sexual themes in the show and can be deemed inappropriate for kids.
See it if You enjoy origin story musicals or Motown in general. The show is all about the origins of the record label and stars Like Diana Ross.
Don't see it if You can't stand people talking/singing along. Because of the popularity of the music, people tend to sing along more than other shows.
See it if You enjoy Disney. This was one of the better Disney productions in my opinion and I liked that it wasn't a carbon copy of the original movie
Don't see it if Don't like Disney. Or want a carbon copy of the original.
See it if You are looking for a good show. It's not life changing by any means but it was a very enjoyable and sweet musical.
Don't see it if You aren't into romcoms or you are looking for the greatest show on Broadway
See it if You want a good show for kids. The musical definitely holds true to the movie it just lost some of that Disney magic in translation.
Don't see it if You have other option. The show is beautiful and innovative with the staging but it is just kind of blah. I would not see it again.
See it if Are looking for a mind blowing show. It starts off a little slow at first but after that the show is non stop energy, laughs, and emotion.
Don't see it if You really don't like drag. The message of the show is acceptance but if you are going to walk in without an open mind, don't walk in at all
See it if You are a human being. That's it. It is appealing for all ages, and captures the hearts of all.
Don't see it if You were extremely attached to every detail of the book. They did change things in the stage adaption but it is still Wonderful!
See it if You can appreciate good classic music
Don't see it if You are looking for something powerful or impactful. Its simple with good music, enjoyable but forgettable
See it if You are looking for a classic. The show is energetic and entertaining while balancing the heavy topic of race relations. Very enjoyable.
Don't see it if You can't handle the message of race relations
See it if You can handle intense shows with heavy messages. It's a phenomenal show that is not for entertainment purposes. It's important.
Don't see it if You don't know what it's about going in. I made that mistake and was very upset by the ending. Mentally prepare yourself for this show.
See it if You want to see a true Broadway classic. The music is fun and memorable and the show itself is timeless.
Don't see it if If you are expecting it to be the movie. The movie took a LOT of artistic license and turned it into a romance. That's not what it's about.
See it if You want to be moved. The show tastefully examines race relations in the 50s with an incredible story and beautiful music. A must see.
Don't see it if You are uncomfortable with the topic of race. Its important to remember and learn from the past but if you really can't sit through it, dont
See it if You want to be impressed. It's incredible watching one person do all of the lines and characters. It's more of a filler but very enjoyable.
Don't see it if You have a hard time following characters and plots. It's a one man play with 20 plus characters and could be confusing for some.
See it if You love musicals. The show was funny, well written with songs I'm still humming. Easily one of my favorites.
Don't see it if You don't have basic knowledge of Shakespeare or musicals. Many references are made through out so jokes will be lost without that knowledge
See it if Want to laugh non stop for 2 hours cause that's exactly what you will do. Under the jokes is a well written commentary of organized religion
Don't see it if A child, super religious , or value being a good person. You kind of have to put all morals on the shelf for this one.
See it if You want a good laugh as well as answers to the most deeply sought after questions about life, religion, and everything in between.
Don't see it if Are extremely, extremely religious. The premise of the show is "God" clarifying the 10 commandments and Bible (for jokes). It could offend.
See it if You love music! The acting and story are great but it's the music that makes the show amazing. The movie can't capture the energy it brings
Don't see it if You are a child. Surprisingly, a group of guys from Jersey don't have the cleanest of language and this might be inappropriate for a child.
