Don't see it if You're tired of clichés or forced wackiness.

Also It's a very thin "Boy pursues Girl" story basically; Act I is 1.5 hour... Read more Read less

See it if you enjoy seeing a few divas make a meal out of their material.

Cagney
Midtown W
Cliched, Dated

See it if you love James Cagney to distraction, and like semi-amateurish tiny shows.

Don't see it if you are tired of theatrical clichés and clumsy storytelling.

Great staging

See it if you like Fiddler, and are open to some slightly new ideas about its presentation.

Don't see it if you just want to see Topol's version again.

Something Rotten!

Sophomoric, juvenile

See it if you think American college boys doing Monty Python impersonations are hilarious.

Absorbing, Clever, Intelligent, Almost great

See it if You like a good new play with smart dialogue, well-staged and designed, and with a mostly great cast.

Don't see it if Plays bore you (as it seemed to do to many around me).

Good spectacle, well sung

See it if You love modern operetta (like Phantom or Les Miz), where everyone sings a lot, but not about much.

Don't see it if You demand interesting thought and ideas from a show. Miss Saigon is rather empty headed, and often morally repellent.
