See it if You're a fan of all things Broadway. This is an unabashed love letter to musical theatre. It helps but isn't necessary to be familiar w her

See it if You want to see a well-staged and wonderfully performed classic musical that explores cultural differences in a clever & entertaining way
Don't see it if You're looking for something other than a very traditional musical
See it if You enjoy satire delivered with dark humor and a little bit of vulgarity, and want to see something as earnest as it is irreverent
Don't see it if You are easily offended about anything at all
