Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Great staging, Original

See it if You like modern-day adaptations of Shakespeare shows.

Don't see it if You do not like new, modern adaptations of Shakespeare plays.

Great staging, Great dancing, Romantic, Great singing

See it if You like classic, well-known Broadway shows. Phantom has been around for years, to many it's a must-see in their theatre lives

Don't see it if Operas leave you feeling bored and tired. The Phantom-Christine obsession/romance is also a bit creepy.

Great staging, Great acting, Must see, Great design

See it if You want to feel every emotion - you will laugh, cry, it will pull your heartstrings in every way. Amazing staging, smoothest transitions.

Don't see it if You are not into pop-like music in musicals. Not all of the music is pop, but it definitely has its influences.

Great staging, Great acting, Great writing, Must see, Edgy

See it if You are into rock musicals, such as Rent, Spring Awakening, Tick Tick Boom, Hair, Next to Normal,.

Don't see it if Rock music and rock-style musicals are not really your thing.

Delightful, Great acting, Great staging, Great writing, Must see

See it if You want everything in a show - big, bright dance numbers, emotional ballads; this show has everything.

Don't see it if You don't want to explain to your kids what a drag queen is.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great staging, Original

See it if You love musicals and Broadway theatre - the show is riddled with references that you will catch on.

Don't see it if You don't like the stereotypical "musical" - the randomly bursting into song and dance.

Entertaining, Hilarious, Rated nc-17

See it if You are looking for a show that will keep you laughing for two and a half hours.

Don't see it if You are easily offended. Book of Mormon will somehow offend everyone.

Great acting, Great staging, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Profound

See it if You have ever felt different or misunderstood. You want to see the main character succeed, especially when you connect with his emotions.

Don't see it if You "don't like plays." If you go in thinking that, you won't like any play! Have an open mind, and you will definitely love this.

Confusing, Great staging, Quirky, Good use of technology

See it if You like experimental theatre.

Don't see it if You need a cohesive storyline to be able to follow a plot.

90
Great staging, Must see

See it if It has become a musical classic over the years, take your kids as their first Broadway experience!

Don't see it if You don't like amazing theatre? But why would you be here if you didn't?

Great acting, Hilarious, Raunchy

See it if You want something hilariously inappropriate. Think Avenue Q combined with the Catholic church

Don't see it if You still have a good impression of the Catholic church.

Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Child performers

See it if You want to be amazed by an ensemble of eight year olds. There are many other great things about Matilda, but those kids definitely top it.

Don't see it if You don't like fun shows?

Great acting, Great staging, Must see, Thought-provoking, Profound

See it if You want to experience theatre like you (most likely) never have before.

Don't see it if You are with kids - Spring Awakening is not a kid-friendly show.

25
Confusing, Quirky, Slow

See it if You are offered free tickets.

Don't see it if You actually have to pay for tickets.

95
Great acting, Great staging, Thought-provoking

See it if You are looking for a show that will make you think and feel.

Don't see it if You have difficulty following non-linear timelines (the plot is not in chronological order).

Thought-provoking, Must see, Great writing, Great staging, Intelligent

See it if You are an ultra-theatre geek who wants to brag to your friends that you somehow got tickets to Hamilton.

Don't see it if If you go in close-minded towards the idea of a "rap musical." It's not - it's a musical that uses rap and hip hop as a form of expression.
