See it if This is a terrific performance that feels like it is still on Broadway. Great singing, acting, dance.

Great acting, Great staging, Thought-provoking

See it if Bryan Cranston gives one of the best performances of the year on Broadway. Ivo Van Hove's unique direction & staging exciting as usual.
