January 11th, 2023

See it if you love the art world, deep meaning, great acting, or are fans of Warhol/Basquiat!

November 16th, 2022

See it if you love Neil Diamond, Will Swenson will likely win a Tony, great songs, glitzy with lots of sequins, glorified ND sing-a-long

Don't see it if money-making focused production using Neil Diamond's privileged life to sell tickets and merch, mild plot, can't sympathize with him

Also Are we supposed to feel bad or sympathize with a guy who took his pers... Read more Read less

Lead-heavy, Important, Slow
November 16th, 2022

See it if you want to see Audra McDonald at the top of her game and say about 98% of the show's dialogue or if you like minimalism

Don't see it if you want anything up-paced, this was a bit slow and dull or something lighthearted, this was a drama with a capital D.

November 2nd, 2022

See it if you like dance-heavy shows with lots of jazz. a throwback to golden-aged Broadway, very 'Nicholaw-ish' (high energy dancing musical comedy)

October 18th, 2022

See it if you love Kpop music and the culture surrounding it, want an amazing light show, and high energy!

Don't see it if you're going for a compelling story. Music doesn't advance the meager plot. Acting was soapy. The songs/genre use the show as it's platform.

Also This show has it's audience in Kpop fans. They do show up to see it. Y... Read more Read less

March 27th, 2022

See it if you want to see master actors on stage. Rockwell and Fishburne are perfect, Criss might be too innocent.

See it if you love Debra Messing and plays about one's full life with all the ups, downs, sideways. Also if you identify with traditions in a family.

Don't see it if you don't like plays about the meaning of life and trying to find your place in the world. This touches on death and loneliness.

Also While traditions stay the same, we are the ones who change.
