See it if You don't mind hearing great songs totally muddled - everyone in my group felt 15-25% of the words in the first half were unintelligible.
Don't see it if You like Andrew Lloyd Webber's music.
See it if You like musicals that are fun. Plus some nice touches in the dialogue that add to the traditional story
Don't see it if You want something deep and intellectual. (This is a great musical, NOT a drama!)
See it if Pleasant voice. You have nothing better to do. At premiere, lasted about 60 minutes.
Don't see it if You are expecting something special.
See it if Deals with 2 German athletes and the 1936 Olympic games. Adds useful texture to understanding of the period. I wanted to like it -but didn't
Don't see it if Terrible staging, so-so acting, fair script, poor casting will overwhelm the important message. Note that it is short - 75 minutes.
See it if You enjoy leaving smiling. Legendary Karen Mason steals the show. Bonnie Panson Prod. Stage Mgr, put on ALL the right touches. Exquisite!
Don't see it if You're a grouch, hate great singing, despise innovative numbers, and can't tolerate spectacular choreography.
See it if A must see for everyone. Dramatic, historical about an era and events that are riveting. An unforgettable play.
Don't see it if You are depressed and suicidal and close to the edge, as you'll see depressing sociopaths and the chilly side of the Holocaust.
See it if You love a child actor. Like intelligent scripts.
Don't see it if You mind missing a high percentage of the spoken words, because the woman (9 year old actor) can't yet enunciate well.
See it if You have nothing better to do. Be careful to stay awake. If you ALWAYS concur with a NY Times Review instead of your own opinions.
Don't see it if You have something else worth doing
See it if You’ve never seen any magic show ever
Don't see it if I love magic. He does one classic trick competently. He developed one unique trick with images - but repeats it in endless minor variations
Also Show lasts 70 minutes, and dragged
See it if You enjoy classical or rock music, and wish to see a nice blend.
Don't see it if You can't stand loud music - it does get loud (appropriately in my opinion) quite often. Really no plot, and just trace acting.
Also Too bad that there is no listing of the musical numbers.
See it if Intelligent commentary on how an adolescent went astray, with excellent characterization of the key persons in her life.
Don't see it if You cant stand having a single retrospective scene in the middle of the play. If some stupid medical script errors would drive you batty
See it if You love Ms. Parker so much that you can't miss seeing her.
Don't see it if You love her work, so see her past work instead. The theme is predictable. It is NOT deep nor thoughtful.
See it if You're interested in Holocaust related issues.
Don't see it if You hate plays that don't have a clear progressive story line: at times essentially simultaneously you're in the "present" & seeing the past
See it if Great acting. You like a script that leaves most issues unresolved. You don't care about anything other than seeing nudity.
Don't see it if Offended by total nudity. You desire a modicum of coherence. NOT recommended for those under 18 as the themes definitely include "adult"
See it if You like great character studies. Ms. Parker early in her career did Proof - if you liked that, you'll love this
Don't see it if You insist on very upbeat endings or require every nuance to be absolutely settled and clear.
See it if If you haven't yet seen Daniel Cainer, a must see. Creative and with a great voice, he portrays his Jewish heritage with pathos & humor
Don't see it if If you have seen him and demand new material - just one new song in this show and minor changes in past songs and his wonderful patter.
See it if Based on true life events in 1933 Germany, highly relevant to today with fresh insights. Extraordinary scripting & acting. World premiere.
Don't see it if You easily get turned off by any reference to philosophy.
See it if You like innovative staging/set/costumes, or enjoy the music of Meatloaf. Fantastic choreography. FUN! Romantic.
Don't see it if A mediocre script will stop you from enjoying a spectacular production.Sound very over-amplified in 1st act, so that words are NOT distinct
See it if Inventive and VERY funny, from an established playwright. This world premier has a superb cast. Show is near perfection. See it now!
Don't see it if You want to wait until it eventually is a Broadway hit so that you can spend oodles more. Just go now!
Also Bonus - easy parking.
See it if You love great acting; this classic 1970 play is fun.
Don't see it if Any profanity bothers you or any non-linearity is frustrating.
See it if Fantastic acting by everyone! Wonderful script and production. A joy to see. Far far exceeded our expectations.
Don't see it if You don't speak any English. Otherwise, I can't imagine your not enjoying this.
See it if superb performances from 4 of the 5 actors, in complex parts. Well staged. Get to it before this brief 4 week run ends
Don't see it if You have a poor attention span or dislike dramas.
See it if You wished to see a highly hyped show
Don't see it if You'll be annoyed as we were that the star acts by staring & truncates her words so that much is inaudible. Poor script
See it if You want to see Uma Thurman in her Broadway debut, with a great supporting cast. The writing is sharp, and rings true.
Don't see it if you dislike political commentary, or want something that is very predictable.
See it if You enjoy excellent acting and dramas. On portion of the play takes you back in time to explain key background factors.
Don't see it if strong themes upset you
See it if You feel you need to see a play because many are raving about it. Does have some great acting. You love plays with ridiculous endings
Don't see it if For a play that is supposedly taking place a century ago, - it makes almost no sense. Its a waste of your time.
See it if You want to have a joyful 80-90 minutes. There's a wonderful prepared encore that's a fitting coda. 1 man show, perfect on the small stage
Don't see it if You're a grump or want absolute perfection.
See it if you want to annoy your companions
Don't see it if you don't despise your compatriots and don't want to see a play being performed perhaps because a spouse is wealthy & supports its dated run
