See it if you enjoy great acting work and contemporary comedy. Great acting & directing.
Don't see it if you can’t sit through a one act with a slightly longer run time. (This will probably tighten up, as I saw it in early previews)
See it if you want to see powerhouse performances from Laurie Metcalf & John Lithgow. Great acting work.
Don't see it if your political beliefs will get in the way of you enjoying a good relationship play.

See it if you want to see the big puppet and some AMAZING dancers.
Don't see it if you're expecting a cohesive story with well developed characters, or a score that makes any sense. SPECTACLE. Wish it had been 90 mins
See it if you like a score with some catchy pop-tunes and some good staging.
Don't see it if you're expecting fully developed characters. Messy writing; the direction really elevates the material.
See it if you enjoy campy, self-aware, musical comedies! Great singers! This show knows what it is and accomplishes what it sets out to do; entertain
Don't see it if you don't like broad comedy and parody, or shows with tracked music.

Don't see it if you're expecting any answers, or if you get frustrated that the audiences seeing the piece aren't the ones that need to be seeing it.
See it if you enjoy political and/or environmentally staged pieces. Very relevant and a good conversation started. Wonderful cast.
Don't see it if you can't handle being in the middle of the action. Check trigger warnings if you're sensitive

Don't see it if you're expecting a life changing, new experience.
See it if you want to have a fun evening! Cocktails are recommended! Charming, light, silly, fun.
Don't see it if you're expecting a great piece of art or a life-changing experience. PG-13 moments.
See it if you want to see Carey Mulligan. **trigger warnings via their website**
Don't see it if you dislike one person shows. The script is predictable and the concept and prod are clunky and difficult.
See it if you love TransSiberian Orchestra and shiny/rock songs, Pat Monahan from Train, or Chloe Lowery. (She’s AWESOME!)
Don't see it if you expect anything new or creative, or woukd like a story.
See it if you want to see some good by-the-book acting. Clean prod design.
Don't see it if you're expecting anything new. Feels like an echo chamber or complaints without any viewpoint or resolution.

Don't see it if you are upset with changes and new takes on classics.
See it if you want to hear the score on piano and you’ve never seen a production.

See it if you want to see a daring new work from a Pulitzer prize winner.
Don't see it if you are sensitive with race issues and aren’t willing to watch a challenging story.
See it if you want to see Glenda Jackson as Lear. Cordelia/Fool is also excellent. See it if you’re a Shakespeare super-fan; a lot to talk about.
Don't see it if you have seen Glenda in anything else. This production is ridiculous; cast members seem like they are all in different productions.
See it if you enjoy verbatim or political theatre. Great cast, great direction, great set design, great lighting & sound design.
Don't see it if you are expecting a traditional prod.
See it if you like a big family drama! Great acting! Ridiculously BIG production value for a play!
Don't see it if you have issues with "accents". Trigger warnings for gun shots. Dementia. Infidelity.
See it if you're a Sondheim fan and want to see ALL the PRODUCTIONS.
Don't see it if if you love this show. Fractured Atlas was overly ambitious with this adaptation and production. Very disappointing.
See it if you enjoy Brecht and experimental, quirky theatre. The cast is good. The production and staging felt like a high end college show from 1990
Don't see it if you're expected a polished piece of writing. Little play, what do you want to be? It also felt oddly dated for such a relevant story.
See it if you enjoy period pieces, and want to be wowed by the cast. They ALL sing and play.
Don't see it if you're bored by period pieces and don't like shows with minimal sets and costumes.
See it if you're curious about an immersive Trainspotting.
Don't see it if you're easily triggered. (well...by all the things. Drug use, bodily fluids, audience interaction, Scottish dialects...etc)
See it if you love Janet McTeer, period pieces, Sarah Bernhardt, Hamlet, or Cyrano. Fun time.
Don't see it if you're expecting Teresa Rebeck to have found a way to end her plays. History-buff friends that I attended with had issues with inaccuracies
See it if you enjoy a more traditional musical comedy style.
Don't see it if you aren't willing to take an unexpected journey. Not really what you expect it to be about. Odd piece w BIG ideas that don't always land.
See it if you don't want to be challenged by your theatre. This production is safe and lifeless. Norbert Leo Butz is the only life in the show.
Don't see it if you're expecting innovative theatre or a "modern" take on the show.
See it if you are a fan of Joshua Jackson and wish to support the ideas of accessibility and inclusivity in Broadway theatre. The cast is great.
Don't see it if you’re frustrated by museum pieces being produced, without a contempoary lens. Ugh. This play is so outdated. We need a new piece.
See it if you love Buffett and want some escapism. Lots of cute puns and "dad jokes" built into the very silly, loose Rom-Com, predictable story.
Don't see it if you're expecting life changing theatre or something more than a FUN, SILLY show.
