See it if you are able to accept that this is not the Debbie Reynolds movie. In this version (spoiler!) JJ is dictatorial and cheats on Moll
Don't see it if you want to preserve the memory of the innocent version where JJ is kind and deferential and gentle and faithful to Molly.
See it if Strap yourself in for an intensely memorable intermissionless hour and a half! Enjoy!
Don't see it if you can’t willingly suspend disbelief while grappling with the oddities and peculiarities of fetish and flawed human expressions.
See it if you have time and money to kill and believe the other decent reviews.
Don't see it if you want good quality singing and story and acting and production. The entire experience was an utter disappointment because it was awful
See it if you want to see a simplistic comedy about tragedy. It is supposed to be heart warming, but my heart felt cold and even pissed off!
Don't see it if you have more sense than I did. Remember, this musical is about the worst tragedy in American history. And it is not well done!
See it if you love Oklahoma and always wondered as a young kid why people are SO MEAN! I was always a Judd sympathizer. OK down throat! Nourishing.
Don't see it if you cannot accept a new take on a beloved classic. But know this...this show is an improvement over the original. Melodramatic insights.
See it if You aren’t afraid of engaging feelings. Big questions—becoming, life, god, death, love. Not ham-handed. They captured human truth.
Don't see it if You want something mindless. Many in audience wept, including me. Good weeping. Some were sobbing. Let it go! Broadway as a mirror.
See it if You are easily entertained by hearing about someone’s affair. If you must see a story told backwards, see Memento! It is awesome!
Don't see it if You like either a wild musical or a multilayered drama. Betrayal is neither. ! I love slow ponderous dramas if done well, but not this one.
See it if you are willing to go with an absurd, shallow unworkable plot with insultingly simple wrongheaded stereotypes.
Don't see it if you can’t ignore that the main plot is aggravatingly wrong. The lead woman not stunning and the lead man not plain so constant distraction.
See it if you want to see a great show. This is why we go to Broadway! The talent and cleverness of the entire production astounds!
Don't see it if you don’t want to see a good show.
See it if you love great writing, great acting, great dialogue, poignant story.
Don't see it if you want something light or want a blockbuster. Even then, you might unwittingly enjoy this accidentally because quality is quality.
See it if you love a cappella singing. I wish they would have sung the entire show!
Don't see it if you are weary of edgy themes or hard of hearing. The dialogue was hard to follow. The writing weak, the plot and characters shallowly cast.
See it if You like fast moving comedy with harmless quick jokes and overdone singing in character.
Don't see it if you expect excellent singing. Each character sings in his characters voice which detracts from three quality.
See it if you love inventive small theatre shoestring productions that use every ingenious human resource.
Don't see it if you are exhausted and don’t enjoy silliness right now. This is lighthearted fun.
See it if you love the thought of seeing Carole King enough that even if the actress is not actually Carole King and sings poorly, that’s ok.
Don't see it if you are going through a complex breakup. The play treats their marriage trouble uber simplistically.
See it if you like a well done musical — a wild colorful ride from beginning to end. This is quality, silly, forget-your-cares fun.
Don't see it if you are currently in grieving mode and don’t have the ability to lighten up just now. Wait until you are on a better mood and see it later.
See it if you aren’t afraid to think and feel and see different perspectives and are comfortable with ambiguity.
Don't see it if you need an emotional break because your life is already too full of complexity and conflict.
See it if you are someone who loved Tina at the time. My uncle who doesn’t see much loved it. Definitely a world class broadway contender.
Don't see it if you are overly entertained and weary of the Jersey Boy Beautiful Ain’t Too Proud jukebox musicals. Even then if you can afford it, do It.
See it if you enjoy whodunnits even if you know who did. Don’t get me wrong, it was good.
Don't see it if You believe that life is short enough that you only want to see the creme de la creme. Don’t get me wrong it was good. Yawn.
See it if you are like most people who seemed to like it.
Don't see it if you want a sure fire winner musical. You have other options. See Fiddler in Yiddish or Wicked for a sure jolt of joy. This ain’t it.
See it if you want to know every minutia about the Temptations. The coast is clear for good signing and dance moves.
Don't see it if you don’t want to know every single petty thing about the Temptations. It became a morality play. Get prepared for beatifications! ;)
See it if you like to see unusual plays out of the box. The acting is what shines here too. It wasn’t perfect but it evoked human feeling.
Don't see it if you want a cookie cutter plot. I wouldn’t read too much about this play beforehand. Set expectations aside.
See it if you want to see something light and very entertaining. You don't have to adore Cher. I don't worship her either!
Don't see it if Cher gets on your nerves.
See it if you love overdone predictablity.
Don't see it if you already know exactly what to expect. Because you are right. It’s exactly what you think it is. See it in your mind and save!
See it if your heart is young (or you ARE young!) and able to enjoy relentless pounding sounds and smells accompanying edgy burlesque. Voyeuristic.
Don't see it if you can’t stand the thought of a crowded, smoky, energy-filled room of half naked youth expressing their right to be whoever they want.
See it if you follow dialogue easily. I had a tough time bc my seat was in front row with obscured view. I couldn’t see or hear well. Still good!
Don't see it if you can’t see the stage. Missed a lot of interaction between characters and a lot of dialogue. Irish accents didn’t help.
See it if you are able! The show ends soon. It doesn’t sound like a very good plot but it is very funny and moving without hitting you over the head.
Don't see it if you don’t have patience or subtlety.
See it if you simply love Bryan Cranston. The theme endures. But be sure to spring for a good seat, it matters in this theatre. Get an unobscured seat
Don't see it if you are familiar with the movie and are expecting an updated version. Emotions fall flat because of dated predictablity.
See it if you have low expectations and a tin ear.
Don't see it if you don’t want to waste two hours of your life dozing off sitting up as a fake gorilla roars and roars and roars.

See it if you like musical bios that employ a chronological timeline and are enjoyable and easy to follow.
Don't see it if you don’t like musicals or biographies.
See it if you haven’t seen a lot of shows. This is the equivalent of Carmen for an opera lover.
Don't see it if you didn’t really like Elton John or disco or polyester shirts, even in their day.
See it if you want feel good experience that isn’t simplistic. This was fun fluff with good singers and creative production. Fun and inspirational.
Don't see it if you can’t take other points of view and tend to stereotype interpersonal experiences. Even then, go! Take someone with you— transform!
