Absorbing, Great acting, Funny, Edgy, Thought-provoking

See it if you want to see an amazing ensemble of actors that can make you laugh as they break your heart. I saw it on the last day and so glad I did.

Don't see it if I can’t think of any reason not to see this wonderful portrayal of a 1968 play still relevant today. I hope they recorded it to show later

Disappointing, Overrated, Fluffy, Cliched, Slow

See it if You want a show for young children that is family friendly but will not wow the adults like Lion King or Anastasia.

Don't see it if If you expect a magical experience. The whole thing kind of fell flat and had no energy or emotional connection and was way too expensive.

Slow, Thought-provoking, Great singing, Entertaining, Relevant

See it if you want to see two legendary Bway actresses although they perform mostly in separate scenes & enjoy story of women's sucess men's world.

Don't see it if you want more flashy, exciting type of show. It lacked drama and suspense but was an interesting history of the cosmetic industry .

Great singing, Great acting, Sweet, Funny, Great staging

See it if If you liked the movie because I think this is better. Actors are engaging and pace is energetic and upbeat.

Don't see it if If you don’t like stories about prostitution or want it to be exactly like the movie. The villains seem less sinister and Edward less aloof.

Also I think Andy Karl was a wonderful Edward and much more likable than Ri... Read more Read less
