See it if you want to see traditional styles of dance. You want to see a classic (traditional) story.
Don't see it if the idea of arranged marriages is too antiquated for you. That’s the whole plot. I don’t what could be cut, but I found it a little long.
Also It was a lot funnier than I was expecting it to be.
See it if you want to see a show where everything comes together: actors, music, set, lighting, etc.
Don't see it if you need a happy ending. There is dancing, but if you expect big dance numbers, this is not the show for you.
See it if You need to be a fan of the Four Seasons or else there is nothing here for you. The songs are still in my head.
Don't see it if You are not a fan of jukebox musicals. Parts were slow and dragged.
See it if you want a more masculine story. If the time period of the 1960s interests you.
Don't see it if you expect big dance numbers. Not all of the songs seemed integral to the plot. There’s also a bit of swearing. Not for younger children.
See it if You want to see every show from Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Don't see it if You except something of intelligence. As a teacher, no way would 95% of the happen in the real world. Dewey would have been fired day 1.
See it if You want to see beautiful projections. Some lovely songs.
Don't see it if You are expecting anything deeper than a love story. It doesn’t go into the Soviet history really.
See it if you are familiar with the time period. I am not, but my mother said it rang true. If you want a show without an intermission.
Don't see it if you don’t want to see characters yelling at and over each frequently. You are not a fan of free love.
See it if You want to see modern music incorporated into the show. Interesting sets. Top-notch cast.
Don't see it if You are expecting it to be exactly like the movie. The second act is pretty different from the film.
See it if You want to see classic Gershwin. You like ballet. I've never seen the movie, but people who did said they enjoyed it.
Don't see it if You want to see something modern or slightly edgy. You don't like ballet.
See it if you want to see some high energy numbers. You want to see an uplifting, feel-good show. Message of accepting everyone.
Don't see it if you are homophobic or don't want to see men in drag.
See it if you enjoy the soundtrack and want to see it brought to life. If you want a modern day take on a musical.
Don't see it if you find Millenials and their use of social media annoying. If you are expecting large dance numbers.
See it if You love dance! The Rockettes- enough said!
Don't see it if You don't want to see a Christmas show. Not much changes from one year to the next- there are the staple numbers they always do.
See it if You have a dark sense of humor.
Don't see it if You are expecting gut-busting laughter. It was funny, but there are funnier shows. Songs aren't that catchy.

Don't see it if You get offended with lines like "Don't be a penis, the man is a genius."
See it if you want a feel good story. You want a shorter show with no intermission.
Don't see it if you want to see big dance numbers. You are expecting to emotionally connect to characters as there are a lot and you only get snippets.
See it if You want to see a spoof of Hamilton and other Broadway shows and actors.
Don't see it if You are expecting a big budget, high-tech show. It is also short- 80 minutes, no intermission.
See it if You want a simple night of entertainment. I found how they did the Oompa Loompas interesting. (Though their origin song was a little weird.)
Don't see it if I read that the tour sets were improved from Broadway, but I still found them lacking. They didn’t take up the full stage.
See it if you want a fun time at the theatre and to forget about your stresses. I found it hilarious.
Don't see it if you want a musical. The end was a little too chaotic for me.
See it if Voices were good, but songs weren't that memorable.
Don't see it if you are with children under 16. There's a lot of skimpy outfits and simulated sex. As the woman behind me said, "Oh, that's a naked butt."
See it if You want to see a classic. You want to see a behind the scenes look at making a musical.
Don't see it if You are expecting more dance numbers than just "God I Hope I Get It" and "A Chorus Line." It's a lot more talking and the audition process.
See it if You like your musicals mixed with circus spectacular.
Don't see it if You saw the original and are expecting the same. Even some song lyrics are changed. There isn't a nice happy ending.
