Don't see it if You don't know about or don't like Harry Potter, or if you're looking for a show for little kids. This is not a children's show.
See it if You like Jewish humor and/or stories of queer experiences. This show is chock full of both in really wonderful ways.
Don't see it if You don't know much about Jewish humor. The dialogue has a lot of yiddish-isms. (Although my non-Jewish friend saw it and loved it!)
See it if You love a good laugh and enjoy some slapstick! My stomach was hurting from laughing so hard the entire show.

Don't see it if It is very classically Broadway: big showstopper numbers purely for sheer entertainment. It isn't really deep or thought-provoking.
