Great acting, Intelligent, Riveting, Thought-provoking, Absorbing

See it if You are interested in the McCarthy era, but don't know much about the background. Or if you want to know about the first female senator.

Don't see it if You want mindless entertainment.

Also Excellent acting. Some comic relief even though very serious. I had be... Read more Read less

Raunchy, Indulgent, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You enjoy Jewish content and songs with a story, especially if you are older.

Don't see it if You are uncomfortable with a formerly religious Jew making fun of certain aspects of observance.

Also The performer stated at the outset that the show would run 90 minutes.... Read more Read less

Riveting, Quirky, Entertaining, Delightful, Clever

See it if This is a classic R & H musical, and the songs are great. Staging is creative & original. Ally Stroker is terrific as part of a good cast.

Don't see it if The only bad part was the ballet that opens Act 2. Because it is "theatre in the round" it is not for people who like frontal staging.

Great singing, Dated, Entertaining

See it if Many classic songs. Fast moving show.

Don't see it if Minimal staging. No good reason to put the orchestra on stage.

Quirky, Entertaining, Delightful, Clever

See it if Fun plot. Some good songs. Quirky characters.

Don't see it if You don't like children.

Great writing, Masterful, Must see, Great staging, Entertaining

See it if You care about the events of 9/11 or if you like great ensemble acting. The cast members are on stage for the entire show!

Don't see it if You care more about big name performers.

Delightful, Relevant, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if You want a fun night out. Beth Malone is super. Music is very upbeat. A lot of dancing, staged well. Good costumes and sound system.

Don't see it if You expect a revival of the 1960 show or the 1964 movie. -- the book of the show is very different. Or if you are turned off to immigrants.

Also Running time 2.5 hours, including intermission. Theatre downtown on Gr... Read more Read less

Edgy, Quirky, Clever

See it if You are interested in Judaism or if you are Orthodox and can make fun of yourself. Parts were absolutely hilarious.

Don't see it if You are put off by references to BJs. Some of the material was so-so or in poor taste.

Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Resonant, Relevant

See it if Great production. If you know any Yiddish you will appreciate the jargon and idioms used. Much more "Jewish" than the English version.

Don't see it if The supertitles were very close to the original English script. They did not convey many of the refinements made to the book by the Yiddish.

Raunchy, Quirky, Funny, Edgy, Clever

See it if You appreciate a comedy dealing with adolescents

Don't see it if You are put off by raunchy language. Silly ending.

Clever, Edgy, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if You want to know the "real" story behind the wizard of Oz.

Don't see it if You like a tightly written plot.

Great staging, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You like the music. Modern revival of the Ben Vereen show of 1972. Originally actors, the "players" are now circus performers.

Don't see it if Plot matters more to you than music and staging.
