Great acting, Masterful, Great writing, Thought-provoking, Intense

Entertaining, Great singing, Overrated

See it if you are a fan of Tina Fey or the movie, though the delivery in the musical isn't nearly as funny as the movie

Don't see it if you aren't a fan of the movie. Long musical with far too many songs that aren't catchy or absorbing though the cast has very talented singer

Also Taylor Louderman was a vocal stand out for me.

See it if you want to see theater take it to the next level. I cant say enough about the acting, staging and the "magic" that happens in that theater.
