See it if what a play! what a fascinating staging!

Don't see it if i don't think it always tonally worked and the thrust stage with empty back stage really made things hard for the actors

See it if there's some real beautiful stuff in here. some real sad stuff too. sometimes they're the same.

Don't see it if i think i liked the script more then the production. Can be a little unengaging at times.

See it if a wild, absurdist, often hilarious romp through black culture

Don't see it if some sketches are better than others, unclear if there's an original idea here or just someone who's done the reading

See it if you like to see small dramas about the human experience

Don't see it if i don't love the third act of the show and find it becomes more exploitative than caring.

See it if its cute! kpop fans were having a great time in the audience. it's easy to watch. lots of costumes

Don't see it if the songs are unmemorable and the book is worse. I can imagine the immersive version was really cool. This is fine.

See it if you like emma rice! she does what she does best, while masterfully weaving this story and coaching out some great performances.

Don't see it if second act gets a little slow. if you're looking for a classical wuthering heights - this isn't it.

See it if if you want to see a 70 year old man recount anecdotes about his life, jokes that might be amusing to a boomer.

Don't see it if no reason this show should be on broadway.a classic solo show in all the worst ways (yes he explores his trauma on stage).

See it if you love david greenspan. people who have dug his other work seem to be loving this!

Don't see it if i like absurd stuff and i couldn't get into this. Occasionally funny but really just a man repeating a series of phrases for over an hour.

See it if lol i hated this play but the lighting and set is really pretty. some occasionally beautiful moments.

Don't see it if it's a slow, middling nazi love story. was struggling to sit through most of it despite the relatively short run time

See it if it's a perfect play and wendell is on another level. Rarely have I seen a performance so fully realized.

Don't see it if not every detail works for me and it's not as good as the last revival, but it's pretty phenomenal all the same

See it if you like horror and surrealism! there's some real spooky stuff, some jump scares, and some really fascinating acting.

Don't see it if all the varying elements don't totally congeal. if you're not into horror you probably won't get much out of this.

Don't see it if you're expecting a bigger, better version of the play. It drags at points, the set looks shoddy and cheap. the show needs content warnings.
