Riveting, Intelligent, Intense, Great staging, Edgy

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.

Don't see it if i will have completely forgotten about this show soon...

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)

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
