Great acting, Epic, Masterful, Great staging, Enchanting

See it if you're a fan of the Potter universe. Also for the masterful stagecraft (direction, movement, effects) and the great acting performances.

Don't see it if you don't like Harry Potter, and if you don't like two-part theatrical events.

Great acting, Great singing, Great staging, Resonant, Masterful

See it if you want to see something unique and visually stunning that will move you resonate with you long after experiencing it. Also for Amber Gray!

Don't see it if you don't appreciate folk style music. Or if you don't like Reeve Carney (not the best in this).

Absorbing, Ambitious, Great singing, Great staging, Refreshing

See it if you want to see something unique and unconventionally beautiful. Beautiful score, staging, movement, and performances from all actors.

Don't see it if you want to see something flashy or conventional. The non-linear aspect may be a turn off for some. It also feels longer than it needs to be

Entertaining, Great singing, Funny, Refreshing

See it if you want to see something upbeat and joyous, and with familiar songs as this is a jukebox musical (a "better" example of one in my opinion)

Don't see it if you don't like jukebox musicals, or would be turned off by the crossover between modern music and classical speech.

Also Great choreography, ensemble is wonderful. This show also does a great... Read more Read less

Clever, Delightful, Great acting, Thought-provoking

See it if you like short plays (one act) that are both intellectual and entertaining.

Don't see it if you don't like plays or if you want to see something that doesn't make you think too hard.

Slow, Disappointing, Enchanting, Great singing

See it if you love the movie and want to see the story in a new and slightly expanded medium.

Don't see it if you want something that moves quickly or is laugh-out-loud funny. Also I missed a lot of the action from my partial view orchestra seat.

Great staging, Enchanting, Riveting, Overrated

Don't see it if you will remain unsatisfied and frustrated for not knowing the entire story in order.

Great staging, Great acting, Great singing, Confusing, Enchanting

Clever, Entertaining, Relevant, Resonant, Riveting

See it if you want to see something that's never been done before in the Broadway canon. Also, it lives up to the hype for the most part.

Don't see it if don't actually know the history and are planning on learning it for the first time from this show (missed a lot of info during songs etc)

Great staging, Great acting, Intelligent, Must see, Resonant

See it if you want to see something powerful, honest and heartwarming.

Don't see it if you care about memorable songs within the score (the score is great but not many memorable tunes).

The Ferryman (NYC)

Intense, Riveting, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you want to see masterful actors tell an intriguing story in a "slow burn" fashion.

Don't see it if you don't like long shows.

Great singing, Funny, Cliched, Entertaining, Tries a bit too hard

See it if you're a fan of the movie and want to see what the hype is all about. Lots of impressive singing (though the belting gets to be a bit much)

Don't see it if you want to see a well-crafted show. The performances are great, but the writing is questionable at times, as is much of the staging/choreo

Absorbing, Resonant, Great singing, Disappointing

See it if you enjoy small-scale productions in an intimate setting. Wonderful singing from all 4 actors.

Don't see it if you want something more extravagant, plot-driven and with more fleshed out character development.

Also Poor direction in my opinion; the set did not lend itself to the show ... Read more Read less

See it if you want to see a revival that stays true to what makes the original a classic while maintaining a relevance in today's climate.

Don't see it if you like more contemporary/pop musicals.

Also Amazing sets and costumes, stunning staging, and Laura Benanti is wond... Read more Read less

See it if you just want to leave your brain at the door and escape with some stupid, silly humour and catchy songs.

Don't see it if you want to see a refined piece of theatre.

Delightful, Funny, Great singing, Great staging

See it if you want to have a great time! Creative staging and design, memorable performances, catchy songs, very silly but self-aware sense of humour.

Don't see it if you want to see something more serious or classic in style.

Great singing, Disappointing, Overrated, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if See it for the powerful vocal and acting performances. The show moved me and made me very emotional even though I wasn't a huge fan of it.

Don't see it if you're expecting something groundbreaking. In my opinion, the show's concept, idea and overall message are better than the execution of it.
