Delightful, Relevant

See it if You like a small simple show with heart

Don't see it if You are looking for spectacle

72
Clever, Quirky, Slow

See it if you are patient and you like good songwriting. Literally half way through you get to the gem of the story, and from there on, its worth it!

Don't see it if You're looking for splashy staging. This is simple storytelling with music.

66
Dated, Great staging, Clever

See it if You're a Larson fan and you haven't seen this yet. It's delightful to see his earlier work and some of the songs are terrific.

Don't see it if You want to see it perfectly done. The two friends play everyone else, and they're good at it, but not so much their main roles.

70
Resonant, Slow, Great singing

See it if you want to see a masterful performance by Whitney Bashor. And if you love Irish stories. And if you're just trying something new.

Don't see it if you lose patience with shows that aren't perfect. or perhaps don't like ballads . . .

Enchanting, Funny, Refreshing

See it if you want a lightweight but very effective night of theater. The music is great and Pasquale's singing is incredible. The comedy is on point.

Don't see it if you like serious shows. This is, after all, a fairy tale.

Disappointing, Banal, Slow

Disappointing, Edgy, Great acting, Great staging, Overrated

See it if you love great acting. the performances are outstanding and fierce!

Don't see it if you want the play to hold together. Although it is VERY funny, I couldn't get past the core of misogyny in the text.

95
Absorbing, Refreshing, Resonant

See it if You want to see a new work, with great acting and new songs, that isn't derivative. It feels like a new American Classic.

Don't see it if You'd rather see yet another movie turned into a musical.
