About:  I love musicals. Especially those dark, gritty ones that make your feel things that are hard to understand, they are just more entertaining because you have to think more. Except for Wicked, that's just a fun musical.

See it if You've seen the movie and already love it. If you haven't, still see it, it's incredibly fun.

Don't see it if You aren't a child at mind and/or you are offended by "sticking it to the man."

Also This musical is so much fun, and the music is great. I saw the movie a... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Clever, Enchanting, Thought-provoking, Masterful

See it if You love the circus and love thought-provoking musicals with ambiguity around the meaning leaving you still thinking about what you saw.

Don't see it if You don't like circus and don't like thinking about what you've seen, but you should go just for the music and the staging.

Also Honestly, I loved Patina Miller in the role and her performance was am... Read more Read less

Edgy, Epic, Masterful, Intense, Resonant

See it if You enjoy spending your time with transcendent music, fascinating characters, and intelligent writing and storylines. Utterly stunning

Don't see it if You're an idiot and won't feel accepting towards 2 hours of beautifully provoking material and if dark subjects are too much.

Great singing, Fluffy, Refreshing, Enchanting, Indulgent

See it if You don't really care for a good romance and love sweeping scores. The score, singing, and sets are the best parts of this show.

Don't see it if You like character depth and character-driven stories. The characters are blegh and the story is dumb, but the score is amazing.

Also I was thoroughly disappointed by the storyline, and I couldn't help bu... Read more Read less

Clever, Thought-provoking, Refreshing, Must see, Intelligent

See it if You like biting satires and social commentary. And fun music.

Don't see it if The highly sexualized and sensualizd dialogue, dancing, and plot will offend you. And the lack of moral characters (except one).

Great acting, Absorbing, Hilarious, Relevant, Resonant

See it if You like seeing socially relevant, yet entertaining material. Funny, but poignant and the most emotional musical since Next to Normal.

Don't see it if You will criticize it, and as much as it is not the greatest score, book, or story, it's more revelant than most recent musicals.

Also The music was great and entertaining, but it didn't really fit right m... Read more Read less
