See it if you want to see the work of one of the hottest new writers in NY right now. She is crazy talented.
Don't see it if The subject of school shootings is too raw for you, or you only light to see things that are "light".
See it if you love Allison Janney, and if you like sharp writing. I laughed a lot.
Don't see it if you are not comfortable with full frontal nudity. That was a bit of a shocker.
See it if see it for Christian Borle. He's pretty great.
Don't see it if you love the movie, bc the show pales in comparison. A real missed opportunity. The new songs are not good, and adults playing kids-- NO!
See it if you really do want to hear the same thing OVER AND OVER AND OVER. I know that is the conceit of the show, but UGH!!!!! Andy Karl is great.
Don't see it if you want to maintain your sanity.
See it if you like plays about weird sexual habits
Don't see it if you are uncomfortable with nudity, profanity, and LOTS of talk about sex. Not sure what to make of this one. It's really bizarre.
See it if you really like these actord or if you want to see the play for your theatrical edification.
Don't see it if you're expecting anything close to DEATH OF A SALESMAN. I thought everyone was overacting.
See it if you are already a fan of the show and want to see this cast. Christian Borle is great, as always.
Don't see it if Sorry, I am just not a William Finn fan. He is SO repetitive. He also only has 2 speeds-- ballads (often lovely) and frenetic, headache-y
See it if you like big dance numbers; there's some good dancing.
Don't see it if you have any attachment whatsoever to the movie. The casting is weird and it takes FOREVER to get to the actual point of the story.
See it if You like typical ALW, where there are 2 good songs and the rest is completely forgettable. The kids are great.
Don't see it if you want to keep your hearing. And, the movie is SO much better.
See it if you want to see something completely innocuous but not especially memorable. Also, see it for Jessie Mueller. She's great.
Don't see it if you only like shows with lots of flash. This is pretty low key
See it if you want to be challenged about interesting issues, but also can tolerate being screamed at.
Don't see it if you don't take a Xanax first.. Within the first 15 minutes, I was exhausted by the anxiety level of every single character.
See it if you adore Bette Midler. She's good, but I don't fawn over her, so she was fine.
Don't see it if you don't like golden age, classic musicals. Also, for some reason, the sets and costumes are UGLY and distracting.
See it if you like plays with REAL SUBSTANCE that leave you thinking for days afterward. Reed Birney is spectacular and Letts is one of the greats.
Don't see it if you want a light evening and are not up for introspection
See it if you want to laugh a little, cry a little...
Don't see it if you don't like plays that are VERY contemporary, or maybe not if you are already feeling very lonely. Uneven writing, but Glick is great
See it if you like ensemble shows, and if you can deal with the 9/11 subject matter.
Don't see it if you get confused by people playing multiple characters or if you like to see "star turns"
See it if you are a HUGE Ahrens & Flaherty fan like I am. The new songs are as good or better than the ones from the movie.
Don't see it if you SHOULD see it!
See it if if you are into "not your average musical" shows. It's well done, but I liked it more in the theater than after I thought about it.
Don't see it if you are uncomfortable with sex, profanity, etc
See it if you want to see one of the best plays EVER. So inventive and profoundly moving. Amazing sound design as well.
Don't see it if EVERYONE should see it
See it if if you liked Next to Normal. Great score, and tremendous performance from Ben Platt.
Don't see it if you only like shows that are HUGE productions. This is small and intimate
