Dated, Carousel is a masterpiece but this production drains it life force.

See it if If you want to see a workmanlike revival. Jack O'Brien's production is lifeless and horribly miscast. The music is phenomenal.

Don't see it if Don't expect to experience the uber talented Jessie Mueller, Joshua Henry or Rene Fleming as a cohesive and connected cast.

See it if Saw it in previews and first act needs some major cutting. Andy K and company excellent although the chemistry with co-star is off.

Don't see it if Don't enjoy seeing a "work in progress."

Also Needs some editing and maybe recast the female producer actress with t... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Great acting, Masterful, Riveting, Funny

See it if if you love great, memorable, once-in a lifetime GRAND musical theatre performances. GLENN does the impossible --is brilliant w/o any camp

Don't see it if you saw it and like me, found the book and lyrics flawed and somewhat pedestrian. But Glenn's performance soars and overcomes the material

Dated, Entertaining, Great staging, Great singing, Cliched

See it if If you don't mind a classic that's a little dated. 21 years is starting to show-best to see a show w/in 2yrs. past opening.

Slow, Overrated, Insipid, Indulgent, Excruciating

See it if Very clunky prod. of a 2nd rate Coward play. It is so poorly directed that Kevin Kline and cast seem to be in 5 different production.
