See it if You like a play that will make you think more than it will make you feel.
Don't see it if you are squeamish about sex or don't like being uncomfortable.
See it if you like the show itself and want to see it with a Latinx cast. See it if you've never seen Evita.
Don't see it if You don't like ALW musicals or if you are a loyalist to the Patti LuPone version
See it if You like new Orlean's style jazz. The music in enchanting, and the performers are giving the best performances I have seen in a long time.
Don't see it if You only like happy, sparkly musicals. This has some darkness.
See it if you want to see Janet McTeer live. She is amazing in this role. Also if you like Hamlet. I am not sure the play works if you don't.
Don't see it if You can't pay attention to lots of dialogue without a ton of action. This is a words play.
See it if you're interested in watching characters make terrible choices and explain them using words that sound written, not spoken. Very heady.
Don't see it if you don't like moral ambiguity.
See it if you like shakespeare. The women in the cast are particularly strong.
Don't see it if you can't pay attention to a long shakespeare play. Comedic bits are milked rather than cut.
See it if you already know that capitalism helped further racism and classism in America.
Don't see it if you are looking for a play that provides hope for where we're going. Also, don't see it if you like routing for the protagonist.
See it if You only care about the music in a show. Flemming, Mendez, Henry and Mueller all sound beautiful. Also, the dancing was lovely.
Don't see it if You can't condone domestic violence or want a plot relevant to 2018.
See it if You like Shakespeare and can use a light-hearted laugh. Annaleigh Ashford, Jeff Hiller, and Danny Bernstein will delight you.
Don't see it if You are looking for a deep meaning - there is very little substance. When Kristine Nielson (Puck) was on stage, the play dragged.
See it if You love the score and want to see Glenn Close be amazing. All the actors did a fine job with the
Don't see it if You prefer literal sets or you don't enjoy star vehicles.
See it if You love the music. This production is exactly what it needs to be. Creatively staged, but not too conceptualized that you miss the original
Don't see it if you are a musical theater snob. Sure, it's not new, but there's a reason this show ran for so long in the original production.
See it if you like intimate casts and thinking about how life has changed for gay men over the years. Or if you want to see Harvey.
Don't see it if You get bored easily. There are a lot of monologues that could use some editing. The play could use another draft, to be honest.
See it if You're interested in storytelling style interwoven with dialogue. It beautifully explores what gay men owe to one another cross generations
Don't see it if You can't sit through a 2 night play or you're squeamish about drugs, sex, and violence
See it if You like musicals about serious topics and you don't need a literal plot. If you enjoy going on an emotional journey.
Don't see it if You need a literal plot or like the spectacle of shows like Wicked.
See it if You like Kelli O'Hara and want to see her play this classic role. All the performances are solid, actually.
Don't see it if you want something new, and there is a lot of new stuff out right now.
See it if you like contemporary new musicals and need a good laugh with heartfelt performances.
Don't see it if you don't like pop music. It's a little bit fluffy, but it's the style of the show, not bad acting/writing.
See it if you are on a mission to see everything or you are able to tune everything but Bonnie Mulligan out. She is the reason I stayed for Act 2.
Don't see it if you want original music, a plot that works with the music, or a conversation about gender/sexuality. This play tries, but gets it wrong.
See it if you like Idena Menzel a lot. The performances were good, but I think Josh Harmon is just cranking out work too quickly.
Don't see it if you have high expectations. This is the weakest of Harmon's plays.
See it if you like Jason Robert Brown's music and performers who sing their faces off. Seriously, the best singing I have heard in a long time.
Don't see it if you want to see something with a plot. That is not this show.
See it if you like Tennessee Williams or have never seen anything he has written staged. It's a beautiful, slow example of his work. Ireland is great!
Don't see it if you have a short attention span or need fast-paced action. The props are mostly mimed and there is a lot of watching.
See it if you have ever cared about a person with special needs.
Don't see it if I can't think of a reason not to see it, honestly. It's important and everyone will walk away thinking.
See it if You like honest stories told by the people who lived them. The 7 actors are all brave and thought-provoking.
Don't see it if You need multiple stimuli at the same time. If Wicked is your type of show, "Generation NYZ" might not be.
See it if you like original theater and thinking about the personal and the political side of identity
Don't see it if You only enjoy traditional theater with a single plot and protagonist
See it if You are married, you are not married, you have thought about getting married someday. Hnath's writing is relevant and honest.
Don't see it if You like big sets and dancing. Characters break the 4th wall so it feels like a lecture at times. I like that style, but it's not for all.
See it if you enjoy history and stories that are told with simplicity and subtlety. The 90 minutes of the show held my interest for every second.
Don't see it if you prefer musicals with big sets and large ensembles.
See it if you like Carole King music. This is Biopic theater done at its best. Better than On Your Feet or Jersey Boys.

See it if You like ensemble pieces. It's a very well done production of an August Wilson show.
Don't see it if You want an uplifting theater experience to escape our current political climate.
See it if you love Gloria Estefan's music. See it if acting, singing, and dancing matter more than the writing of the script.
Don't see it if you like plays with conflict and lots of emotion.
See it if you like period-pieces. The play is a period piece made relevant again by our current climate's view of reporters and conventional news.
Don't see it if you need fast-moving and lots of flash.
