Don't see it if You don't like thought-provoking shows.
See it if A dream come true for Harry Potter fans. Incredible to watch Rowling's magical world come to life. Phenomenal acting & staging. Must see.
Don't see it if Show will be better understood if you've read the Potter books or seen the movies. Can still enjoy a unique show but a lot will be missed.
See it if You want to see three actresses own the stage. Amazing performances. Laurie Metcalf is a Broadway gem.
Don't see it if You don’t like reflective plays that make you think about past/future.
See it if you want to try a different theatrical experience (sand, water, a goat comprise the stage...) and witness a breakout star in Hailey Kilgore.
Don't see it if You don't like immersive, "thinking outside the box" shows.
See it if You want to witness masterful actors. I saw Linney as Regina. She, Nixon, McKean, Thomas - all bring their best to the material.
Don't see it if You don't like traditional plays.
See it if Catch this gem soon to see why Sutton Foster is a Broadway queen. She's funny, dazzling & endearing. Bonus is an intimate theater setting.
Don't see it if You want a traditional Broadway experience.

Don't see it if You're not a fan of Andrew Lloyd Webber's music.
See it if You want to experience a timeless Broadway show. I saw it in 1997 and again in Sept. 2018. Show has held up and still a delight.
Don't see it if Hard pressed to find a reason not to see this show. Perhaps if you really dislike anything Disney?!

Don't see it if You don't like plays that resonate with today's times.
See it if You want a slow-paced musical.

Don't see it if You can't handle very heavy material, especially about violence against women.
See it if You want to see a unique show that manages to navigate the sensitivity of a 9-11 storyline w/humor & compassion. Both emotional & uplifting.
Don't see it if Many, like me, are sensitive to 9-11 storylines in shows/movies/TV/books. CFA is tastefully done & inspires by showing humanity at its best.
See it if You want to see the Divine Miss M in all her glory. She as well as entire cast exude so much energy & joy. Audience was out of their seats.
Don't see it if I can't imagine not wanting to see this show - it's Broadway at its finest.
See it if You like Phillipa Soo. This isn't a role like Eliza but she does her best w/Amelie, making her a likable, endearing character.

See it if If you want to see a masterful performance by Ben Platt. (Rachel Bay Jones also delivers w/a powerful #.) Unique show - poignant & resonant.

Don't see it if If you don't like flying monkeys!
