See it if you're open to a smart and beautifully written and performed, one-person drama. I was totally engaged for the entire performance.
Don't see it if you are unwilling to be challenged about racial stereotypes.
See it if you're open to an edgier, newer kind of Broadway musical. This is more "Spring Awakening" than it is "My Fair Lady." Exuberant and new.
Don't see it if you need to skip the 2019 Tony winner for Best Musical. Or don't like amazing trombone and guitar solos.
See it if you want a classic Broadway musical experience. This has it all: star power, great singing, amazing dancing... and Cole Porter songs!
Don't see it if you absolutely need to keep a straight face for two hours. It's impossible. And the Act II opening number ... oh my God! Pure theater joy.
See it if you enjoy things like "August Osage County" or "The Lieutenant of Inishmore" — black comedy, family drama. Amazing performances and staging.
Don't see it if you have trouble with Irish brogue. The two women behind us whispered throughout: "I can't understand them. Do you understand them?"
See it if you enjoy classic American drama with strong lead performances.
Don't see it if you're fidgety. This is a one-set, three-act play. There is plenty of drama as the story slowly reveals itself, but this is mostly talk.
See it if if you want to enjoy an evening of wonderful Sondheim presented by an utterly charming and inventive cast of six.
Don't see it if you're looking for a big Broadway musical experience. This is much smaller in scale than, say, Kiss Me Kate -- not a criticism, just a fact.
See it if you're into strong performances, some hilarious writing and a crazy-inventive but dead-serious play about climate change vs. consumerism.
Don't see it if you are a socially conservative denier.
See it if you enjoy intense drama. Ethan Hawke is downright frightening.
Don't see it if are looking for a light-hearted Broadway experience. Despite some laughs, these character go to some pretty dark places.
