See it if you're a big fan of Jim Steinman songs (like myself!). His music has always been bombastic & theatrical so it's fun to see them acted out.
Don't see it if you want a coherent storyline with fleshed out characters. The book, not surprisingly, is a mess. It's a dumb show. But I still had fun!
See it if Better dig out those old Meatloaf LP's cause the acoustics in City Center diminishes the heavy metal vocals. Game cast pours out the energy!

Don't see it if you want a musical with a decent plot. The very lame story supports the songs but that's it.

See it if you know and love the music. There are stunning vocal performances, but no coherent plot. The empty seats after intermission told the story.
