Banal, Cliched, Dated, Boring, Great singing

See it if You abhorred the novel and wouldn't mind a dumbed down version for the general masses.

Don't see it if You loved the novel and found this adaptation to be poor fanfiction in its own right.

Also I saw this show years ago, let's see now. I didn't hate the show, I ju... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Hilarious, Fluffy, Could use a trim

See it if You like being screamed at, because it's the backbone of contemporary American theatre.

Don't see it if Too much production values! Too much tuna!

Also Having never seen "The Oh, Hello Show'', but being otherwise familiar ... Read more Read less

Everybody wants to be a newfoundlander

See it if Minimalist staging and ensemble driven musicals is your thing.

Don't see it if Canadians are weird.

Also 9/11 is still a sensitive topic for many of us, but if ''Come From Awa... Read more Read less

Not disney's best

See it if See it for the Genie only. No matter what actor plays him, he breaths life into an otherwise dull show. (For the record, I saw Iglehart).

Don't see it if You found the Disney theme park musical version a more tolerable adaptation (I saw two versions).

Also I love Disney musicals and though this wasn't my favourite Disney movi... Read more Read less

Jonathan larson's masterpiece

See it if You love RENT. See it if you don't love RENT (moi).

Don't see it if Can't think of any reason not to see this. I relate to the show's mere 12 songs more than any of RENT'S 40-something songs, minus voice mail

Also Hey, you all remember that one show about money, AIDS and gay people b... Read more Read less

Slow, Boring, Great acting, Great singing, Disappointing

See it if You must really be interested in the history of the cosmetics industry to enjoy this show. My mother who went to beauty school would love it

Don't see it if Make-up and beauty products isn't your war paint.

Also As a fan of LuPone and Ebersole, I've heard nothing but good things ab... Read more Read less

Dizzying, Exquisite, Epic, Masterful, Profound

See it if You appreciate human stories set against a political backdrop, revolutionary new takes on classic literature, and colour blind casting.

Don't see it if You hate fun. You despise electro-pop operas. Or the title's too long. And Andrey isn't here.

Also The comet has landed, a la Hamilton! No one throws a party better than... Read more Read less

Enchanting, Fluffy, Quirky, Hilarious, Great staging

See it if You love singing garden gnomes, talking goldfish, darkly humorous suicidal tourists, a grocer who plays with fruit, and of course, Pippa.

Don't see it if You can't hold your pee for 1 hour and 50 min. There's no intermission. Or if you still have no clue what Zeno's Paradox even is.

Also This musical is far from perfect, but though the book is a little wonk... Read more Read less

For a previous production
A simple love story set against the backdrop of political satire

See it if You love SpongeBob with a passion. See it if you hate SpongeBob with a passion. See it if you've never watched SpongeBob but love theatre.

Don't see it if You can't relate to a sponge. Because it's not Hamilton.

Also They didn't simply put SpongeBob on stage. Rather, they adapted Sponge... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Quirky, Thought-provoking

See it if You love quirky shows about magical beavers. Also, you’ve really got to give it to the cast performing the same day eight shows a week.

Don't see it if You have nothing against small towns, per say, but you abhor groundhog day.

Also The show isn't perfect. The second act is much more solid than the fir... Read more Read less

Better than dear evan hansen

See it if You like Dear Evan Hansen, Spring Awakening, Be More Chill, Greek dramas, or high school musicals.

Don't see it if You despise Lolita.

Also Dare I say it's better than Dear Evan Hansen and though guilty of comm... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Great singing, Great staging, Intelligent, Must see

See it if You love folk opera or Greek mythology (raises hand). Look out for its eventual Broadway transfer.

Don't see it if Can't think of any reason. This is one of the rare few musicals where you must run to the venue, don't walk.

Also Modern re-tellings of Greek myths are nothing new to the world of thea... Read more Read less

Obnoxious, Big and loud, Loses sight of the source material, Otherwise it remains a relevant timeless story, Indulgent

See it if You enjoy big and loud self-indulgent musical adaptations of otherwise quietly thought-provoking plays.

Don't see it if You're a fan of Lorraine Hansberry.

Also No matter what production I've seen of the late Robert Nemiroff's RAIS... Read more Read less

Thought-provoking, Riveting, Resonant, Relevant, Great acting

See it if You're relieved to discover an original musical not adapted from a film, T.V. show, comic book, or old literature. Also, Ben Platt.

Don't see it if You're not fond of high school musicals and all their clichés. The score is also nice, but a little generic and nothing new.

Also My only main criticism is that the show's cast lacks a whole lot of di... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Intense, Relevant, Hilarious, Must see

See it if You want free coffee and donuts. Also, actual members of the CIA talked to us after the show at the performance I attended. Very educational

Don't see it if You blame yourself for starting the Iraq war. Just so ya'll know, I was the one who mixed up the words credible and reliable. You're welcome

Also The original Off-Off Broadway production may have felt dated back in 2... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Clever, Delightful, Great singing, Cliched

See it if Gorgeous score. Innovative theatre. May create a new genre of A Capella musicals. The show's premise is creative, fresh, and intelligent.

Don't see it if The story may not be entirely original, and each character's story ties up predictably, but the staging and music makes up for it.
