Absorbing, Entertaining, Beautiful direction, Masterful

See it if you are ready to feel all the feels.

Don't see it if you have no soul. :)

Clever, Entertaining

See it if You're looking for a different theatrical experience that is VERY interactive and immersive.

Don't see it if You don't like interacting, walking long distances, or long experiences (upwards of 3 hours).

War Paint
Midtown W
Great singing, Indulgent, Slow, Boring, Disappointing

See it if You've never seen Patti Lupone or Christine Ebersole live, you care about the beauty world, you find diva duels interesting

Don't see it if You expect there to be any interaction between the two characters, you want memorable music, you want to be entertained.

Romantic, Riveting, Great singing, Must see

See it if You love epic musicals with large casts, lavish love stories, power ballads, and huge spectacle.

Don't see it if You expect it to be different from the original, you can't stay awake thru romantic ballads, you want something that moves quickly.

Great acting, Exquisite, Epic, Quirky, Intense

Don't see it if really? You want to see it.

Absorbing, Great acting, Great singing, Must see, Resonant

See it if You're ready to laugh and cry. Millenials (and their parents) will ESPECIALLY love this show.

Don't see it if You hate emotions. But seriously: if you are a very traditionalist when it comes to musicals, this MIGHT not be your jam. Or it just might!

Delightful, Fluffy, Refreshing
