Absorbing, Exquisite, Masterful

See it if you love great stories with amazing music and wonderful voices. FANTASTIC dancing. Humor abounds, but you will be moved as well.

Don't see it if you can't handle controversial material on the true past of Jews in imperial Russia. This one is longer so if you can't sit still don't go.

Funny, Quirky, Refreshing

See it if you liked the film, or if you like 80s music. The concept is cute and fun. Good songs.

Don't see it if you can't open your mind to alternative lifestyles. If you don't like slightly cliched plots.

The Crucible

Clever, Great acting, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if you would like an interesting, modern staging to a classic. While transitions between acts are a little slow, the acting makes up for it.

Don't see it if you hated it in high school & still didn't like it after rereading it as an adult. Cast is superb, but not likely to change that opinion.

Entertaining, Funny, Quirky

See it if you love musicals. The references and tongue-in-cheek "inside jokes" are hilarious.

Don't see it if you've never seen a musical. It'll still be fun, but you'll be sitting there thinking "I don't get it" while everyone who does is laughing.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Hilarious

See it if you enjoy tongue-in-cheek humor. The singing and dancing are great and there are some genuine touching moments amid the crassness!

Don't see it if you're easily offended or dislike swear words. The content can be course at times.

Entertaining, Funny, Romantic

See it if you like comedies. While there are dramatic moments, this show is a feel-good type of show. Beautifully sung, if a little underdeveloped.

Don't see it if you don't like RomComs or can't tolerate a little lack of depth. While funny and engaging for sue, it was a little underwhelming overall.

Tuck Everlasting

Clever, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you want to enter a different world for a bit. It has great dancing & fun numbers. The Tucks will find a place in your heart. GREAT casting

Don't see it if you don't want to see a departure from the book. They do change the story a bit. The Man in Yellow was a bit over-done and annoying for me

Allegiance

Intelligent, Intense, Relevant, Resonant, Thought-provoking

See it if you want to learn about an embarrassing chapter of American history that many overlook or don't want to talk about.

Don't see it if You want to pretend that America is perfect and has never done anything wrong. Timely and important given current events.

See it if you like tongue-in-cheek humor. The cast is delightful and really enjoy what they are crafting on the stage.

Don't see it if You can't joke about murder. It can be a little contrived at points, but the overall fun of it is worth a viewing.

Absorbing, Clever, Masterful, Refreshing, Riveting

See it if you like references to hip-hop and also Sondheim. This is not JUST a hip-hop musical! There is so much more to it than that!!

Don't see it if You have extreme difficulty or trouble following fast language. They spit words really fast sometimes!
