See it if You like hearing old music--the trip through decades of music is fun. And if you enjoy a women-centered show and great voices.
Don't see it if You are expecting a coherent story to go along with the music. This is a revue of sorts--kind of more a concert than a show.

Don't see it if You are bothered by profanity or gritty situations. This is not a light, feel-good play- if you want just entertainment, see something else.
