Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent, Thought-provoking

See it if You like period drama that is often funny with a wonderful cast of offbeat characters portrayed by gifted actors lead by Elizabeth McGovern.

Don't see it if You don't like period dramas that can be wordy and slow moving at times or thinking about consciousness and the duality of time.

Absorbing, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Riveting, Entertaining

See it if You want edge of your seat entertainment with great music, acting, staging and a story that will open your mind and tear at your heart.

Don't see it if You want an old fashioned musical; don't care about challenges facing today's youths; don't want to think; prefer to feel alone & not found.

Also One of the very best shows of the 16/17 season. A great script that is... Read more Read less

Delightful, Entertaining, Great singing, Slow, Fluffy

See it if You love seeing snippets of great musicals; want to remember having seen some of them; see really good performers, and one great standout.

Don't see it if Find a "greatest hits" type show boring and unoriginal; want a plot; want a cohesively structured show; want to be fully engaged; backstory.

Also It's a light hearted, entertaining show but was uneven. The device of ... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Great staging, Intense, Great writing, Edgy

See it if You want an avant-garde experience that is gritty, innovative, Shakespearesque, good acting and great fight choreography that is dance-like.

Don't see it if You don't like homoerotic theatre, portrails of graphic violence, a show that is very untraditional, quirkily poetic.

Absorbing, Must see, Relevant, Masterful, Funny

See it if You want to be wonderfully entertained, moved and inspired by a truly original musical; to learn a fascinating untold true 9/11 story; laugh

Don't see it if You're afraid of laughter thru tears; don't want to open your heart; don't like Canadians; don't want to see one of the best shows on B'way.

Also I always say I can't believe we didn't know about this important 9/11 ... Read more Read less

Thought-provoking, Clever, Funny, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if You want to have a great evening of funny yet thought provoking entertainment; if you feel helpless in these times and don't know what to do

Don't see it if Where to start? Just want to escape reality; don't want to think; are not into political humor; not a fan of MM; not a fan of liberals.

Also Didn't know exactly what to expect as a stage piece. Yes, of course I ... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Great acting, Great singing, Great staging, Entertaining

See it if You want to see a classic reinvented in a clever way with a great cast, innovative staging and if you like being startled and screaming.

Don't see it if You are easily confused, hearing impaired (cast needs mics), faint at heart and don't like being startled and screaming.

Also The preshow meat and mash was surprisingly delicious!
