Slow, Excruciating, Fluffy

See it if For no reason unless you love Dan Lauria... it’s a truly badly written and poorly acted piece of theatre. I almost left: intermissionless

Don't see it if Just don’t... it’s not very good at all

Ambitious, Confusing, Disappointing, Great writing, Overrated

See it if You are obsessed with the movie. It’s got great book writing by Tina Fey & Karen & Regina are the only reason to see this terrible show

Don't see it if If you like music because it’s truly some of the worst music I’ve ever heard in a musical. In My Life was better than this garbage in pink

Don't see it if Just go.

Ambitious

See it if You liked the movie and films where not much happens at all. It’s ok, but not a great musical. Worth it for some things...

Don't see it if You loved the movie because it’s a much much much better film

Don't see it if if you can't handle joy, classic musical theatre and masters in the form of actors, singers and dancers. its BRILLIANT

Clever, Entertaining

See it if you love Hal Prince's work and have previously enjoyed reviews, however there's only truly a few wonderful performances. The rest are subpar

Don't see it if if you hate reviews or want to see any semblance of a book musical.... Its D list actors bringing you B performances

Great acting, Slow, Thought-provoking

See it if If you love Norbert Leo Butz because he's giving an amazing performance. It's an OK play with an OK cast with OK writing. Act2 is FAR better

Don't see it if You want an amazing play. It's less than stellar and kind of cliche and banal. They attempt to and at points nail a phenomal show. Big miss

Clever, Great staging, Great writing

See it if You want to see a show in a innovative space and seeing the show in a new light... direction is brilliant only the cast is weak

Don't see it if Norm Lewis may be giving his worst performance of his entire career. This Cast is very weak & I wish saw the original

Great acting, Great staging

See it if You enjoy plays about meaningful stories that aren't often told.

Don't see it if You don't like a badly executed play. It means well but is truly just not a good a play, and relies on your emotion to forget that it's bad

Great writing, Great staging, Thought-provoking, Profound

See it if You enjoy plays about gay people & our struggle of being somewhere in the middle of where we've come from and where we're going... great!

Don't see it if You can stand bad accents. Harvey Fierstien is brilliant in the role but his accent is an embarrassment to the theatre, truly.
