Another excellent effort from repertorio espanol, Ending disappoints and is inconsistent with the rest of the show, Engaging premise and presentation, Great acting, Clever

See it if You want to see dogs personified and actors use clever methods to portray "dogginess" while remaining obviously human; en Espanol appeals

Don't see it if You want a tidy and consistent ending--the last 5 minutes is a real disappointment; you have no patience for philosophical cleverness

96
Intelligent, Dizzying, Enchanting, Delightful, Absorbing

See it if You want a state of the art VR experience; you want to achieve a state of childlike wonder; you love Laurie Anderson.

Don't see it if You think technology is incompatible with theater; you are really, really, phobic about heights; you are claustrophobic.

Great staging, Great singing, Entertaining, Enchanting

See it if What happened to Disney? This was a great show, so much better than Lion King, Frozen, etc. Great tunes and staging (roller skates!).

Don't see it if You like the Disney formula as in Lion King, etc--big spectacles with little character.

91
Great staging, Great acting, Clever, Funny

See it if You loved the book; you love innovative staging; you like to see creative approaches to storytelling with a minimalist set.

Don't see it if You don't like noise, flashing lights, a feeling of chaos.

75
Slow, Overrated, Intense, Great acting, Banal

See it if You love the book; you love seeing women of color given a chance to shine.

Don't see it if You want a fast pace and action--the play is much less dramatic than the book.

63
Great staging, Insipid, Banal, Disappointing

See it if You just want to see a show.

Don't see it if You love the film (either version)--the musical numbers in this show are ptiful in comparison.

92
Great staging, Romantic, Thought-provoking, Masterful

See it if You want to see everything done right; you are old school; you love stagecraft, choreography, technical excellence.

Don't see it if You only like experimental theater.

78
Boring, Intelligent, Slow, Thought-provoking, Ambitious

See it if You are a fan of underacted, dialogue heavy message plays. The style is very understated, presumably favoring message over emotive acting.

Don't see it if You want to see action; you want to see stories happening, not get 2d-hand "interview" version. BUT my companion loved it, was not bored.

Profound, Great acting, Exquisite, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if You are wowed by the beauty of great acting; you like plays that involve "people like us;" you love to find profundity in our banal lives.

Don't see it if You are bored by "people just sitting around talking;" you want flash, not domesticity.

78
Ambitious, Refreshing, Overrated, Quirky, Watered down

See it if You are grateful that topics like teen suicide are being addressed on Broadway; you like shows that reflect our social media driven times.

Don't see it if You expect thought provoking drama-this is a very "Broadway" show despite the unusual topic; you love a toe tapping tune-the music is ho-hum

Disappointing, Romantic, Slow, Clever, Dated

See it if You are a fan of all things Irish, even those aspects of Irish society that seem very dated and over-wrought to most Americans.

Don't see it if You desire staging; you want a tidy narrative; you are expecting theater on par with some previous (amazingly good) Fishamble productions.

Disappointing, Funny

See it if You think a man in a dress means nothing has to make sense, it's just so funny. There are some good 1 liners and a couple hilarious scenes.

Don't see it if You want a thorough story. The film is much better, though the play makes a couple of excellent updates in the romance plots.

68
Dated, Insipid, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if You already love all things Frozen. Some good effect especially puppetry.

Don't see it if You are interested in good theater. It is just a bunch of scenes to fulfill a list. The snowman is horrific

Meh, Overrated, Insipid, Banal, Disappointing

See it if you are a fangirl

Good actors but direction was lacking, leading to shouty, buffoonish over-acting, Sadly, i found it excruciatingly bad, Very "community theater," see because your friend is in it, Good costumes, Disappointing

See it if You want to support this group; you have a personal connection to the group; you want an excuse to visit Williamsburg.

Don't see it if You find it hard to sit through well-intentioned but bad shows; reminded me of teen theater at the YMCA but with much better costumes/makeup

Masterful, Excruciating, Great acting, Ambitious, Absorbing

Uplifting, Cute, Funny, Disappointing, Clever

Don't see it if You need complete fidelity to the cartoon, or you have no interest at all in the cartoon.

72
During previews
Insipid, Romantic, Slow, Confusing

See it if You don't mind a slow build that means much of the dialogue/action is unclear until the last quarter; you are interested in mental illness.

Don't see it if You don't like slow drama; you want something nice to happen, please! You expect a Dylan concert--many numbers are hard to recognize.

92
Hilarious, Totally camp, Outrageous, Silly, Funny

See it if You like goofy belly laughs; you've ever been involved in amateur theatricals; you want to support crazy zany theater

Don't see it if You want a serious show; you can't stand sophomoric humor; your pleasure is lessened when you can say "I knew that was going to happen!"

82
Good intentions, Cliched, Ambitious, Sincere, Thought-provoking

See it if You are an insider in the immigration wars in US and elsewhere; you are content with 1-sided presentation of a complicated issue (US=meany).

Don't see it if You thought it would be in Spanish--spoken in English, with Spanish supertitles; you want real discussion of how to deal w/ immigration.

86
Fun, Clever, Intelligent, Cheesy, Funny

See it if You love to see an all-black cast; you like melodrama; you like issue-driven drama; you like strong characters facing moral dilemmas.
