Overrated, Intense, Fluffy, Great singing, Disappointing

See it if you love Alanis Morissette and don’t mind reinvention of her songs. See if you a theater buff and want to see everything and anything.

Don't see it if If you are not capable of handling sensitive material. This show is heavy and if you are seeing to relive the 90s. You will be surprised.

Also This show needs a complete reworking of the book. The story is very he... Read more Read less

Banal, Disappointing, Indulgent, Whiney, Fluffy

See it if you want to see Idina flex her acting chops. See if you don't want a complex story with complex characters. The plot came off very flat.

Don't see it if if whiney, rich, snobbish characters make your skin crawl. If you don't find humor in the elementary.

Also Unfortunately, the play didn't work because the characters have not a ... Read more Read less

Quirky, Great staging, Great acting, Magical, Silly

See it if you love to laugh at trivial love, magical happenstance, & actors acting like asses. Seeing Shakespeare for the 1st time- easier to grasp.

Don't see it if you get confuddled by a dizzying theme. Interesting concept but wasn't my fav midsummer production. If you don't like musical interludes.

Also Annaleigh Ashford and Danny Burstein are the clear stars of the show. ... Read more Read less

Slow, Dated, Overrated, Superb costume design, Eh...

See it if you want to check off seeing a classic Webber. Solely to see Glenn Close shine. She was riveting! If you love the glamour of old Hollywood.

Don't see it if You don't like the over indulgence of Webber. It's a totally snoozefest if Glenn wasn't in it. It lacks memorable songs & has a weak plot.

Also Definitely go see if you won the lottery, I had great seats for such a... Read more Read less

Topical, Great acting, New, Quirky, Slow

See it if you want to see an original new musical in its early stages of development. Go see if you feel connected to immigration issues.

Great acting, Intense, Slow, Confusing, Complicated

See it if You want to see one of Shakespeare's underproduced plays. The acting was incredible despite a difficult script and plot. Free Shakespeare!!!

Don't see it if Shakespeare isn't your cup of tea. If you don't like complicated plots. If your not a fan of gunshots, themes of war, or sitting outside.
