Banal, Slow, Overrated, Insipid, Excruciating

See it if you like badly directed and acted plays by a terrible director. There is nothing good about this, except the original this production killed

Banal, Cliched, Slow, Raunchy, Overrated

See it if you like an old, tired musical with terrible direction and terrible acting. See it if you see beyond that for great songs and originality.

Don't see it if can't put up with bad acting and singing and B-celebrity casting. This is not a worthy version of a great Broadway classic,

Thought-provoking, Masterful, Romantic, Great staging, Clever

See it if you're a young girl or love the best of Broadway musicals. Have a family needing a great night out. Think you can fly, but aren't Peter Pan.

Don't see it if you're tired of Wizard of Oz stuff. Don't want to see the monkeys freed. Don't like flying monkeys. Don't like witches. Don't like twists.

Banal, Cliched, Dated, Confusing, Excruciating

See it if you're Jewish or like Jewish stories. It's very much influenced and about those cultural life aspects and topics.

Don't see it if you can't relate to other cultures, or want something exciting.

Banal, Cliched, Dated, Great singing, Great staging

See it if you never saw it the first time and are wanting memories from the 1980s. Love cats. Think your cats sing and dance and talk. Might be a cat.

Don't see it if you like plots, and stories that make up a musical. This has a plot, but it's a cat-plot. This is a great version of this classic. But so?

Ambitious, Cliched, Dated, Romantic, Great singing

See it if like Gloria and her husband and want to see more, and a fairytale lover story. This is a pretty good musical. See how they made success.

Don't see it if you want something less cheesy at times. Love and romance tends to be cheesy in this musical.

Banal, Raunchy, Slow, Excruciating, Disappointing

See it if You have a simple mind and don't know funny. Watch the lead actress get banged and moan in a vulgar, explicit, and pointless sex scene. Why?

Don't see it if You want quality - this is not. All the actors are one-note and ill-trained. This is a stupid premise and tasteless material. Awful rip-off.

Also Excruciating 2 hours, without a real laugh. Not a single joke was orig... Read more Read less
