See it if You like that era of music. The dancing really is extraordinary. Brought tears to my eyes which I had not expected.
Don't see it if You don’t like the era or biographies.

Don't see it if You don’t like the music.
See it if Script adaptation interesting and more political than others. Many actors extraordinary; others not so. The set and costumes disappointed.
Don't see it if It failed a little with some of the choices. So you might not be game to see that.
See it if You like the star. Otherwise I would skip it. Loved the movie. This lacked charm and the costumes looked like a bad h.s. production.
Don't see it if The set was disappointing as were the costumes. The Adams Family worked for me and this didn’t.

Don't see it if You don’t like shows with strong women leads.
See it if You like shows that reveal the racial tensions in the academic community. Very intimate production.
Don't see it if You don’t like contemporary plays
See it if You don’t mind Disney. The staging and sets are very good. Acting and singing really better than I expected. Don’t expect drama.
Don't see it if You don’t like the Disney machine. Or want a taut, interesting story.

See it if You like fresh musicals. Liked the staging especially. An interesting Wonderland interpretation.
Don't see it if You don’t like fantasies or rough works.

Don't see it if You don’t like modern plays that are set in the near past.
See it if You like history reimagined. The lead was great, could have listened to her for hours. Onstage musicians good too.
Don't see it if The story is a little relentless and isn't as imaginative as I would have liked.
See it if Christian B. and Charlie were great, but it was uneven. Not sure if it's for 7 year olds or 70 year olds.
Don't see it if You want an immersive magical experience. The sets were disappointing too.

See it if Script’s struggling to get through. The historic notes are barely ok, swathed in the worst acting I’ve seen at Lincoln Center in a time.
Don't see it if It’s the opposite of thought-provoking. Period drama that has accents that were so bad almost to the point of parody.

Don't see it if You don’t like movie-to-show adaptations.

Don't see it if You like unimaginative theater and want a linear, chronological story.
See it if The story was lame as always. The choreography and the “puppet” were great especially if you can sit close. Songs and singing uninspired.
Don't see it if If you want a night of serious theater or even a great score.
See it if You like the music of the 60s and 70s. It’s not just about Carol king but about slice-of-life NYC when it was making hits in office bldgs
