See it if you love musicals, Lin-Manuel, dancing, and/or if you want to watch an incredibly polished show that absolutely deserves to be on Broadway.

Don't see it if you hate rap music or prefer to watch magical shows with glitter and bubbly, fantasy-like elements. This show is simply rap with dance.

Great writing, Thought-provoking, Ambitious

See it if you like the famous actors in the cast, love good romance stories, and if you are an advocate for incorporating closed captions in theatres.

Don't see it if you can’t stand subtitles in movies. This will feel like that experience because the actors sign throughout the piece.

Also The script is wonderful. This was an incredible challenge for multiple... Read more Read less

Building the Wall
Midtown W
Disappointing, Thought-provoking

See it if you are wide awake.I mean that literally and politically. Also, see it if you hear it comes together.I felt like I was watching a rehearsal

Don't see it if Bad acting bothers you. The lead male was stronger. The lead female was struggling to remember her lines, so she was rarely in the moment.

See it if you are fascinated by people who can transform themselves into humans who act like cats! The songs and dancing in this show are beautiful!

Entertaining, Dated, Funny, Great acting, Great singing

See it if You can get a ticket to a show where Danny Burstein is the lead. He carries this show and is wonderful to watch!

Elephant
Lower E Side
Ambitious, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Sad, Great writing

See it if You want to see talented actresses give you a glimpse into the souls of real women surviving in a brothel in the 1800’s.

Don't see it if You don’t like cleavage or sex or if seeing women being abused makes you squeamish. And the abuse is barely even PG-13-ish, so don’t worry.

Also This show is alright. The writing is strong, so I wanted to see them p... Read more Read less

Cliched, Dated, Funny, Relevant

See it if you want to watch a light approach to relationships and complications with procreation... when there’s a sperm donor... who’s a friend.

Don't see it if You’re expecting great writing or directing. The actors are good, but this can be so much stronger.

Also It sadly opens feeling like a middle or high school show. There is one... Read more Read less

In Transit
Midtown W
Thought-provoking, Disappointing

See it if You can get a discounted ticket and you're an actor or artist working to make it in NYC. Tickets can be found for under $40! Go enjoy!

Don't see it if you're a picky actor/artist. It's a Broadway show, so you're going to expect more. Writing, set, choreography, etc. too weak for b'way. :/

Also The show is closing. For the low ticket prices, I would absolutely go ... Read more Read less
