Ambitious, Intelligent, Slow

See it if You want to see an Ibsen play with a modern take on the language, or you want a play that is very relevant to the times.

Don't see it if You want a classic take on Ibsen, you want a bigger/newer/happier show.

Great acting, Resonant, Great music, Intense

See it if You want to see a show dealing with important social issues, or to see Ben Platt shine.

Don't see it if You don't want your emotions very obviously manipulated. It's tearjerker that knows it's a tearjerker.
