Don't see it if Don't like musicals that are somewhat old-fashioned in script. However, this show tells a story that is for all time.

Don't see it if It just didn't have, to my great surprise, great depth or feeling (others in audience were crying) and didn't build. Cast was good.
See it if You love Amy Shumer and the rest of the hilarious cast. We laughed hysterically and totally enjoyed every moment. Sit up close if you can.
