If you like this person's taste, follow him!
See it if You have kids in high school, enjoy a lovely story about a mom and a child who makes mistakes
Don't see it if Your mind wanders a lot - a number of songs felt unnecessary. Or if you are looking for contemporary theater - it’s a very standard show.
See it if You’re in the mood for a toe-tapping show. One of the best musicals of all time & delivered very well by this delightful cast.
Don't see it if You dislike do-wop
See it if You want to laugh, enjoyed the movie, and don’t read too hard into gender politics. Polished show.
Don't see it if You expect the dated plot to come to a fair interpretation of gender equality. It’s a funny show but I’m not writing home about it.
See it if you're bringing a child to the theater for the first time because the puppet is COOL
Don't see it if bring earplugs due to loud speakers - particularly for kids - my ears rang after, cliched, it just misses the mark everywhere but w/puppet
See it if you want to Laugh, like character development, and want to see a fresh take on theater
Don't see it if you want a single theme as a take-away. Every person I talked to identified w/a different character & maybe that's the point.
See it if you want to be dancing in your seat! Fantastic acting, dancing, lighting, set, music, etc. Extremely well thought-out.
Don't see it if I'm having troubles with this one - I think it's exquisite.
See it if you like great acting, enjoy shows about under-represented themes such as autism, and like off-broadway theater
Don't see it if you are looking for big special effects or need an intermission (there is none)
See it if You're hungry because they serve dinner if you get the right ticket, immersive, alternative space
Don't see it if It's loud, a little intense for the front row
See it if LGBT themes, Jewish themes, real history / story line, thought provoking writing, one of the best things on Broadway
Don't see it if It's very serious but charming, and I think it's best that everyone sees this show
See it if Fosse choreography is stunning, it's a classic show that helped define modern musicals & the NY version sets the bar high.
Don't see it if you're in the mood for something current. While still relevant, this version (rightfully) could feel dated to some.
See it if You grew up in the Bronx, like traditional theater shows, or like the actors because they do a great job in their roles
Don't see it if You like contemporary theater because it is somewhat traditional, parts of the story felt a little forced, no special effects
See it if You enjoy great soulful music & musicians, outstanding lighting, and a deep thoughtful story discussing skin / race / identity
Don't see it if You dislike theater in the round or need a very straightforward story (it’s a bit abstract).
See it if You like Fantastic writing, Queer narratives, Howard’s End, emotional shows, and want to see a gem.
Don't see it if You have very young children - it is long & more of an adult show. Queer or not - it’s a fantastic show that will pull your in.
See it if you love jukebox musicals, gorgeous re-created costumes, and Cher's nostalgia above all else. You can feel Cher's hand on this show.
Don't see it if it tries to be self-defeating at moments but not too self-defeating as to give a blemish. I felt like it's a commercial for her new tour.
See it if you like contemporary takes on shows - they really push the envelope & bring some of the difficult themes to the front of the show.
Don't see it if you want to be reminded of the traditional OK! show - treat this like a fresh show & you'll be very happy with the result.
See it if you want to explore the connections of the US (Appalachia) and Scotland, and the performers are wonderful! Music is outstanding.
Don't see it if you want an 'easy' play. There's a lot of content and the connections explored weave into each other.
See it if you want to feel empowered, enjoy Folk music, enjoy SciFi, and FYI - this is top 3 of 2018
Don't see it if you expect a pure musical - it’s kind of a concert / musical. But FYI everyone that we’ve talked to loved it.
See it if you are bringing high school / younger ones to a show, have nostalgia for the movie, like traditional shows, or want to see good acting
Don't see it if you like big sets, desire special effects, or want a more challanging experience in the theater
See it if You like fun shows, want an entertaining evening, and are prepared for a laugh
Don't see it if You expect a traditional musical or don't like shows aimed at teenagers/kids
See it if Play & Musical hybrid, Middle East themes, Acting is intimate & real
Don't see it if you are looking for a huge spectacle - this show is more low key but touching
See it if Behind the scenes look inside a theater, immersive, contemporary but you can follow it easily
Don't see it if You walk/stand the entire time, it's more performance than theater to me, and it's immersive so ensure you're ok with this point
See it if Great dancing, quirky music, a pleasant show that's a lot of fun if you can just love it for what it is. Come on it's Cats - have fun!
Don't see it if You dislike Andrew Lloyd Webber, theater is very dimly lit the entire time, story line is abstract
