Slow, Great singing, Dizzying, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if You like Meatloaf and you want to hear great singers see it.

Don't see it if If you like any kind of interesting story that strings the songs together. You know, like a musical is supposed to do. Also, lots of strobes

Also This is the stupidest show I think I've ever seen on this scale. The p... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Indulgent, Slow

See it if You want to see a well acted production of 'Night Mother and stirring performances by Erin Cronican and Brandon Walker

Don't see it if If you don't want to see two shows that have little to do with each other, a one note performance by the older actor in A Number. Long night

Delightful, Enchanting, Great acting, Great singing, Must see

See it if You want to see Fiddler told in the most authentic way possible. You love a great ensemble. You want to see an old fave in a new light.

Don't see it if You don’t like supertitles. You need it to be in English. You need fancy sets and effects.

Also Joel Grey is amazing for taking this on and did a beautiful job. The w... Read more Read less

Don't see it if You want the strength and individuality that Harvey brought to the original.

Also Michael Urie is a great actor, but he was not particularly right for t... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Entertaining, Great acting, Relevant

See it if You want to see a riveting show really well performed, directed, and designed, particularly in a small space.

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Intelligent

See it if You want to see an edgy, hilarious show with amazing performances, songs that you'll want to hear again, and amazing use of a small space.

Don't see it if You don't like dirty jokes or if you require a large set. Very few bells and whistles here. Doesn't need them.
