See it if You don't mind edgy productions and you like the actors involved.
Don't see it if You love the book. This is one of those modern takes on it that tries to improve what's already perfect. It's also pretty lurid.
See it if You want to be completely overwhelmed by a stunningly funny Michael Urie, and you like farce.
Don't see it if You want something serious or easier to follow along with.
See it if You loved the movie or you like Sara Bareilles's songwriting. The 11 o clock number is truly spectacular.

See it if You loved the movie or you love Phillipa Soo and wanted to see her in a bigger role.
Don't see it if You don't have a sweet tooth. It's very very precious and overwrought. The music is just okay.

See it if You want to see a tour-de-force, cathartic performance from Carmen Cusack, and hear some very cool bluegrass orchestration.
Don't see it if You want music that will stay with you after the show. The younger romance feels flat and some of the timeline jumping feels haphazard.
See it if You like being the center of the action yourself. You're willing to commit and go along for the ride. You love interactive theater.
Don't see it if You're uncomfortable with talking to strangers. (That's the whole night.) Also, don't think you'll be able to figure the mystery out.
See it if You like watching actors chew the scenery for many hours. Not really a bad thing, but everyone is at a level 10, other than the nice suitor.
Don't see it if You're not in the mood for something intense and depressing, or you want something more natural and less dated.
See it if You loved the film and/or you love Ben Walker, who is a total star in this. You love 80s references and black comedy/satire.
Don't see it if You get queasy easily or you don't like graphic sex and violence on Broadway. Or you're not ready for a slightly more emotional Bateman.
See it if You want to be completely charmed by wonderful chemistry between the two leads. And Jane Krakowski's splits!
Don't see it if You don't like romantic comedies/feel good light fare, or if you're looking for A Message.
See it if You like being immersed in an atmosphere rather than a plot. There's a flimsy narrative but it's unimportant. You like lush set pieces.
Don't see it if You roll your eyes easily. Lots of boring new agey sexuality conversation, plus the same seduction scene again and again.

See it if You enjoy creative staging and a totally new experience at the theater.

See it if You love Hamilton and you want to see something gently making fun of it. You have a strong grasp of theater trivia.

See it if You like unconventional theater and don't mind a little experimental staging or audience participation.
Don't see it if You want a more structured, traditional narrative; you don't want to possibly be pulled on stage.

See it if You want to watch Gillian Anderson tear the house down in a stunning performance.
Don't see it if You think Stanley should be sexy, not whiny and peevish. If you dislike bad Southern accents, this is not the play for you.
See it if You want a Gothic treatment with both starkness and surrealism mixed in. It's genuinely creepy and the acting is superb.
Don't see it if You find the play cardboard-y; there's no attempt to make the forward action more believable, just a full embrace of the allegory.
See it if You like Timothy Olyphant a whole lot and you're charmed by soft Southern accents. You want to see a combo of Justified and the Grinder.
Don't see it if You get easily bored or distracted -- it's long. Don't see it if the antics of a sad rich person are going to annoy you.

Don't see it if You're put off by the misery glamour of Act 1.
