Disappointing, Intelligent, Edgy, Clever

See it if i love sam gold shakespeare. there was a lot that i loved. including many performances: russell harvard, ruth wilson, glenda jackson, etc

Don't see it if sean carvajal's performance in this is one of my least favorite ever. i don't want to be rude, but he kind of ruined the whole show for me.

See it if i don't love seeing shakespeare, but this is one of the better shakespeare in the park performances i've seen. loved the singing and dancing

Don't see it if the seats at delacorte theater are SO UNCOMFORTABLE. bring a seat cushion or something to sit on. it's also very long - 2 hrs and 45 mins

See it if i expected to have a great time (and i did). i didn't expect to be inspired and empowered (but i was). cher and sjb rule.

Don't see it if my friend was bummed that the men sing "dark lady" instead of the women.

Slow, Overrated

See it if this style of over-the-top period comedy is my least favorite genre.but maybe you're different than me. the set and props were cool.

Don't see it if i was bored and annoyed. it's a disgrace that this was nommed for best play over HILLARY and CLINTON

Don't see it if it's not a play. it was very forgettable. it made me feel weird seeing the guy pretend that the actress was his dead wife.

Raunchy, Great staging, Edgy, Cliched, Entertaining

See it if i loved the use of space and that it was immersive and i admired the actor's performance

Don't see it if the story itself wasn't the best and it could've taken it there even more

See it if i was impressed with the songs and singing and dancing. it feels like a very well done drag show in a bar. high energy and well done!

Don't see it if the story/plot doesn't amount to much. maybe with less alcohol i wouldn't have enjoyed it as much?

See it if Larissa FastHorse rules. I was surprised at how funny this play is! A great send-up of white America and the whitewashing of history.

Don't see it if There are comedic songs and skits interspersed through the play. I enjoyed most--but not all--of them.

See it if i love immersive theatre. it was awesome to see dumbo in a new way. there were moments i really liked. it was unique and mostly fun

Don't see it if overall i didn't take anything away from this story. it was very confusing. some moments were laughable for the wrong reasons.

See it if i can at least say that i have seen a production of this tennessee williams play

Don't see it if there are good reasons why this play is rarely produced.

See it if i loved this very much. i loved the writing, acting, staging--very impactful, rich, and moving. go see it!

Don't see it if it's not perfect. it's not for everyone. some people will hate it. it is a little long and can be confusing as you settle into it.

See it if vitaly is a total nerd with some great tricks up his sleeve; i had a blast, and my mind was blown

Don't see it if some of the illusions were a little too similar to others? might be more at home in vegas rather than ny theatre district

See it if a totally unique experience that i'm grateful to have witnessed; the post-show backstage tour was fascinating!

See it if the puppets truly came to life. and then they fucked. it was great. super talented actors/puppeteers in a great show. glad i got to see it.

Don't see it if it was raunchier than i realized, but with purpose (?). it felt a little dated at times, maybe.

See it if totally surprised by this. these are great artists doing great work. it was engaging and fascinating and unique.

Don't see it if i didn't get the story (but it didn't matter). i didn't like the second part (with just the one guy).

See it if truly reimagined. shines a light (literally) on the dark undercurrents. the supporting actors are incredible - Ali Stroker!!!!!! must-see.

Don't see it if it's challenging to sit through. almost 3 hours. almost TOO many ideas. i did not like Damon Daunno as Curly. and i didn't get chili!

See it if it wasn't the worst MTC show i've ever seen... there was a fun twist, and the "live" match near the end was cool.

See it if this is a very impressive production. i especially loved the first big family scene and the dancing scene

Don't see it if i was very bored many times during the 3+ hour runtime. i had trouble with the accents and differentiating the many different characters.

See it if i enjoyed the writing and performances. i hope many schools produce this. it's great to see young actors engaging with these issues.

Don't see it if best to avoid this show if you are averse to politics or nudity or simulated drug use. (it's not as edgy as it sounds, tho)

Fluffy, Great singing, Overrated, Dated

See it if some of the performances were super committed; hats off to the actors. highlights for me were "ruby baby" and "on broadway"

Don't see it if as committed as some of the performances were, others were very uneven/uninspiring. there's no plot. lots of sweat. dated and unfunny humor.

See it if after years of wanting to, i actually did. the moment i left, i wanted to go back again, so i'd say it lived up to the hype.

Don't see it if i got lost many times/missed a lot of the action. i didn't realize it was a dance/movement piece; i wanted more acting. it's so expensive!

See it if this show is a major milestone for the lgbt community. i loved the moment during "mad about you" where the pronouns were changed.

Don't see it if i like the gogos, but their songs don't cut it for a full-length broadway musical. there's way too much filler and fluff with no edge
