Dated, Trite, Slow, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if You want a LGBT history lesson set in New Orleans, pre-Stonewall. Reminds me of CHEERS (TV show), but it's a gay bar set in the 70's.

Don't see it if You're not into low budgeted musical history lessons.

Lots of fun, Fluffy, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You want a light & fluffy show that's fun, entertaining and make you laugh. It's based on a true story. There are some gorgeous drag queens

Don't see it if you wouldn't like a show featuring some drag queens, if musicals are not your thing, if lighthearted fluffy shows are not for you.

Loud music, Edgy, Dizzying, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you think flashing lights,loud music&newer technologies used for entertainment is interesting.Lights are dizzying in darkness so sit in back

Don't see it if you can't handle flashing lights, loud music, no serious acting and no plot. Show can make you feel a bit dizzy! Sit further back!

Felt flat, Not diabolical enough, Skippable, Slow, Disappointing

See it if you love the actors, that is the only reason I can think of to see this play.

Don't see it if you thought the movie was awesome. You'll be disappointed by the show. The characters in the play are not as evil and scheming as the movie.

Melodramatic, Excruciatingly long, Slow, Great acting, Dated

See it if you like very talky long plays w/over the top performance by great actors about family dysfunction & substance abuse.Byrne,Shannon &Lange A+

Don't see it if you can't sit & stay awake for ~4 hour play;length was painful! Parts felt repetitive. Characters seemed to be disconnected from one another

Pointless and touristy, Percussion based performance art, Quirky, Overrated, Disappointing

See it if You are into blue people and you're a tourist. You like pointless performance art and like percussion.

Don't see it if You want to see something deep that moves you. There is no plot and no point to Blue Man Group. At this point, it's just a tourist thing.

Excruciating, Disappointing, Dated, Confusing, Banal

See it if I can't think of a reason to see this show. I hated it, waste of money and time. I'm sorry to say all of this, pointless and boring.

Don't see it if I don't understand for the life of me why this is the longest running play in NYC. I don't get it!

Nothing groundbreaking, So-so, Emotionless, Genie-licious, Fluffy

See it if you love Disney anything;you're not looking for anything too deep; you don't care if it is not written well. Scenes with Genie were great.

Don't see it if rude, talking, etiquette-less kids/teens bother you. Don't expect any connection with the characters. Parts without Genie were slow & boring

Delightful, Hilarious, Great acting, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you want to laugh out loud at the silly antics that these two older women get into. I was so surprised about how much I loved this show.

Don't see it if you expect a deep and serious play. If you cannot laugh at crazy antics, similar to I Love Lucy.

Slow, Funny, Dated, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you have lived w/a dog anytime in your life; watching a great actress capture the nuances of dogs' behaviors. Reminded me of Mimi, R.I.P.

Don't see it if you are tired of Matthew Broderick and dogs are not your thing. This play is told from the viewpoint of a dog.

Dark and insane, Hilarious, Edgy, Dizzying, Funny

See it if you would like to see some insanity. Themes and things that happened on a Broadway stage even shocked me. Usually Broadway is not so risqué.

Slow, Overrated, Excruciating, Cliched, Banal

See it if you want to see a really boring play about a family who comes together on Thanksgiving. Nothing was funny or that dramatic. It was mad slow.

Don't see it if you thought this would be a good play, it's awful. Was supposed to be about a contemporary family. If my family, I would not want to live!

Street music using trash cans, etc., Repetitive, Overrated, Disappointing, Good choreography
