Ambitious, Solo show, Avant garde

See it if you like one-person shows and modern recorded music and ambitious avant garde showmanship with Hamlet references.

Don't see it if You want more traditional theater. If you don't like modern performance art style one-person shows this would not be for you.

See it if you want to hear some talented singers or you like this topic a lot, but unfortunately it misses the mark.

See it if What a play! Had the audience laughing so hard and then silently riveted. Many layers: dramatic and fun! Political comedy/drama at its best.

Don't see it if If you want a simple story, this has unexpected and surprising turns that keep adding to the plot, but masterfully done and well worth it

Great writing, Great acting, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Relevant
June 19th, 2017

See it if you like layered, dynamic plays about love, loss, friendship, commitment, memory and taking a risk. It is both emotional and funny.

Don't see it if you get upset seeing a romance with gay characters. This, however, is about so much more. The story is heartfelt and universal.

See it if you like to see characters making complex choices relating to issues of feminism and marriage and family. Don't need to have seen original!

Don't see it if prefer a lot of spectacle (this has very sparse set and staging).

See it if you want an absorbing thought-provoking story that will stay with you long after the curtain comes down. Relevant. Moving. Stunning work.

Don't see it if you want something fluffy. This is wonderfully layered and makes an impact.

See it if you enjoy a well-known story done in a clever entertaining way. Classic songs. Visually beautiful.

Don't see it if you hated the story of the movie or don't like Disney.

See it if you love seeing brilliant work by Lyn Manuel Miranda and superb performing in a show with spectacle, intelligence, humor and heart.

Don't see it if you're put off by sung-through or rap or diverse casting for historical figures. The brilliant work is worth seeing anyway. Don't miss!
