Slow, Romantic, Disappointing, Dated

See it if Only interesting if you are an Adam Driver super-fan; his part is worthy, but rest of production lacks flair and still stuck in 1986.

Don't see it if you are hard of hearing! Voices of these actors do not carry. Don't expect fireworks from these two, chemistry is lacking.

Clever, Intelligent, Relevant, Slow

See it if you like comedians who convey a unique point of view; the material will not offend either side, so don't worry about that; provokes thought

Don't see it if This is long-form comedy, with a few punchlines. It has no effects, lighting or staging, Just all Colin Quinn.

Banal, Disappointing, Great writing, Overrated, Great acting

See it if An accurate rendering of the book/movie, all the lines and characters are there. Atmosphere of drowsy South maintained, Racism confronted.

Don't see it if Atticus portrayal is more explosive, with less warmth. Staging is static. Narration gets boring. Somehow too quaint to be relevant..

Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Thought-provoking, Slow

See it if This is a true DRAMA that builds in intensity. The humor is dark and quirky. Ethan Hawke is fabulously grungy!

Don't see it if Some might find it more suited for a smaller venue...don't go if you have any hearing issue; lines were often delivered softly.

Clever, Delightful, Great singing, Great staging, Ambitious

See it if If you are a Sondheim-lover, you will not be disappointed. The melodies and great songs are inventively staged. It is fast-paced.

Don't see it if It's not one of Sondheim's bests, and the ensemble style of Fiasco often makes this show come off like a revue

Delightful, Great acting, Great singing, Must see, Resonant

See it if This is a glorious new musical with beautiful melodies and heartwarming family and romantic ballads.

Don't see it if You might find some of the teen antics annoying, but stick with it because all will be resolved.

89
Clever, Epic, Great writing, Intelligent, Refreshing

See it if If you liked "Great Gatsby" at all as a teenager in English class, you will find this acted out version extremely clever.

Don't see it if Since it is read aloud, word-for-word, this is a marathon! Go only if you can appreciate that....

88
Clever, Quirky, Great staging, Great singing, Dizzying

See it if fast-paced wild ride into Alice territory with modern sensibility; dizzying and entertaining staging and choreography

Don't see it if has some of the weird "English-ness" of Matilda; plot is rather obscure; peeks through only occasionally

95
Clever, Great singing, Intelligent, Quirky

See it if If you tend to be amazed by Hamilton-esque witty rap, then this is the show for you. The "players" were thoughtful, intelligent, energetic.

Don't see it if Must like IMPROV-style with audience suggestions.

Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if This is a Bryan Cranston tour-de-force with fascinating and novel staging. Has powerful satirical themes that will resonate with all

Don't see it if Director makes almost constant use of video projections for effect; don't go if you find this distracting...

62
Confusing, Dizzying, Great staging, Disappointing, Ambitious

See it if The set designs are fascinating, and I appreciate the ambitiousness of this event

Don't see it if This show has become a "thing to do", and attracts an audience who treat it like a teen age haunted house; found that disappointing

86
Absorbing, Great singing, Great staging, Resonant, Thought-provoking

See it if This playwright really tackles head on the issues of homophobia and shaming. The setting of an all boys school makes it very dramatic.

Don't see it if This is a show that confronts what it means to be gay young black man; There is nudity.

89
Absorbing, Dizzying, Edgy, Riveting, Intense

See it if This immersive performance is a whirlwind of sight and sound. You will be transported to a dream state.

Don't see it if You will find yourself alone in a room with actors; you must commit to this performance as an audience member and participant.
