See it if you like Nathan Lane I guess.

Don't see it if you want something riveting or that will hold your attention There somehow is too much going on in this show and yet it has such little plot

Thought-provoking, Must see, Masterful, Great writing, Ambitious

See it if you like one person shows, you are an activist or want to make change

Don't see it if honestly I believe everyone stands to benefit and learn from seeing this show so you won't catch me saying to not see it. It is beautiful.

See it if You want a feel good show with fun music, you want something that will make you feel better about the world in the era of Trump.

Don't see it if Just see it. It's a great show. Maybe don't if you only like traditional music like Phantom.

Disappointing, Quirky, Excruciating, Dizzying, Ambitious

See it if You want a dumb, fun, musical for a young child to enjoy. Anyone over the age of twelve probably won't have fun at this show.

Don't see it if You want good quality theater, or a really great show you can discuss for hours.

Also In my opinion, if a show is really great with great writing and music,... Read more Read less

See it if You love a classic princess fairytale with lovely music, you want to see an amazing, incredibly talented young woman- Christy Altomare!

Great staging, Great writing, Must see, Masterful, Profound

See it if You want a feel good show. Even though it may seem like a sad story you leave feeling wonderful. Also see if you want amazing writing.

Great singing, Great writing, Must see, Thought-provoking, Delightful

See it if you like Sara Bareilles's music, if you are a feminist, if you want a feel good show.

Don't see it if you want over the top choreography, special effects, etc.

Overrated, Great staging, Funny, Quirky, Clever

See it if you want something funny, and like fun choreography.

Don't see it if you are worried about it being offensive. I didn't find it offensive to mormons but offensive in other ways.

Entertaining, Delightful, Fun, Great singing

See it if you love Cher. Stephanie J. Block's rendition of her is masterful and the music is really fun.

Don't see it if you want a night of thought provoking theatre or something truly well done. It was great fun but not the best theatre I've seen.

Ambitious, Great singing, Great staging, Overrated, Confusing

See it if You want something completely original, you want to see incredible set and costume design, you want outside the box staging.

Don't see it if You haven't done your research ahead of time. If you don't completely know the plot it is quite hard to follow.

Delightful, Funny, Great acting, Dated, Overrated

See it if You want a very classic, traditional show, with some laughs and wonderful dancing and musical numbers. Also if you love Bette Midler.

Don't see it if You want something new and refreshing. This show is quite dated and even a bit sexist. Not my favorite but enjoyable nonetheless.

See it if You want a more classic musical with great dancing, you like swing and jazz music, or if you or a loved on is a US veteran.

Don't see it if You want something more new and creative, like Dear Evan Hansen or Come From Away. Still very creative with the onstage and and dancers tho

Don't see it if You are looking for a more revolutionary or different musical, like Dear Evan Hansen or Hamilton. That said, this show is still enjoyable.

Also This show also is very meaningful at times like these, when much of Am... Read more Read less

Delightful, Great singing, Funny, Quirky, Must see

See it if you want a feel good, cute, inspiring show; if you want a mix between pop(ish) music and classic musical theater.

Don't see it if you only like really traditional theater, like Phantom. This show is ambitious, yet still delightful.

Overrated, Disappointing, Great singing, Slow

See it if you love classical singing and theatre.

Don't see it if if you are more into modern and ambitious theatre and arts, this show is very traditional.

Cliched, Enchanting, Great acting, Great singing, Funny

See it if You love the original disney work. The music is fantastic and very true to the original.

Don't see it if you expect something similar to the broadway take on the Lion King. This is much more like the original.

Great staging, Great singing, Great writing, Life changing, Thought-provoking

See it if I honestly think that everyone needs to see this show. It's incredible, life changing. Definitely see it if you are in high school, because

Don't see it if I think everyone should see it. That's all.

Also because there is a message for everyone in it.
