See it if You love Katie Thompson and her music, or small, concept Musicals with funny, clever lyrics and catchy tunes. Amazing voices!

Don't see it if You need a meatier plot. It’s pretty much a conceptual concert of Katie Thompson’s music. It’s really good! But the plot is not fleshed out.

See it if You reside politically the left, and you're in the mood for an awesome night of "Forbidden Broadway" style parody.

See it if You've never seen it before and you love the Four Seasons. It's a great show with a lovely book. Great current cast too!

Don't see it if You don't like jukebox musicals and/or the 'Four Seasons sound'. However, it's always worth it to see a Tony-winner.

Confusing, Ambitious, Odd, Disjointed, Well-acted

See it if strange, avant-garde theatre is your thing.

Don't see it if You like linear, understandable theater. It honestly was too confusing and “artsy” to be enjoyable by me. The actors are talented though.

See it if You really enjoy physical theatre. It's a good show with solid writing that tells its story well.

Don't see it if You are easy offended. This show picks fun at everyone of all creeds, beliefs and cultures.

92
Clever, Thought-provoking, Resonant, Profound, Intelligent

See it if you enjoy immersive, engaging, charming and ultimately important theatre.

Don't see it if you're looking to see a "song and dance" musical. Fun Home exists more as a play with music that springs from the conflict of the story.
