See it if you're looking for a striking piece of theatre well-performed. Phillips tumbles through each of the 17 each more creative than the last.
Don't see it if the unevenness of the piece will really bother you. When it hits, it hits, but there are a few shallower moments.

See it if A dreamboat of a show with a score full of instant standards.
Don't see it if I can’t imagine someone not loving this little sweetheart of a show.

See it if You loved math in high school.

See it if You want to melt into a heart-breaker of a show beautifully performed by a tight, energetic ensemble.
