From the show:
Not to be confused with, and very much unlike The Emoji Movie, Emojiland is an electric ensemble piece about a diverse community of archetypes who take one another at face value: a smiling face dealing with depression; a princess who doesn’t want a prince; a skull dying for deletion; a nerd face too smart for his own good; a face with sunglasses who can’t see past his own reflection; and a police officer and construction worker who just want to work together. When a software update threatens to destroy life as they know it, Emojiland faces the most fundamental questions a society – and a heart – can face: Who are we? And who matters?
See it if A top tier cast perform in a cartoonish, yet strangely profound musical. Themes of xenophobia, depression, infidelity, LGBT love.
Don't see it if Emojiland is not for everyone. The humor is broad and juvenile. The set and costumes are gaudy. Think Be More Chill meets Sausage Party.
See it if For younger people who might think it's clever. Extravagant production. Many excellent actors who knock the numbers out of the park.
Don't see it if Doesn't make much sense, kind of boring and shrill but 2nd half picks up. Like "Be More Chill" but totally lacking heart.
See it if you like pop culture references and a young cast bringing it to this sometimes funny musical
Don't see it if you are looking for something more serious or traditional musical theater
See it if You want to see a different twist on relevant topics. Very cute way to apply to very real topics.
Don't see it if You like only serious shows or something that puts a new twist on a relevant story.
See it if you enjoy an original relevant musical with a great underlying political message! Great performances and staging!
Don't see it if you think it has anything to do with the Emoji Movie...it doesn't! Keep the little ones at home!
See it if If you love excellent theatre. Don't let the Emojis turn you away. The show is brilliant.
Don't see it if If you can't get past the idea of Emojis.
See it if This 👍fun & charming musical turns your favorite emojis in to musical characters. 💃🏽🕺🏼👸🏻🕵🏼♂️👩🏽⚕️👿🥰😎🤗Just a few of them!
Don't see it if If your not computer illiterate some translation will be needed . Or if a show bordering on a children’s/ family show is not your thing.
See it if you want to see some amazing talent giving their all to sing some... very mediocre songs.
Don't see it if you want a real 'musical' experience. This felt cheesy, dated, and cheap already. Not sure who the audience for this really is...
See it if You like clever, funny, relevant, and high energy musicals. Very entertaining! I give it a thumb up and a smiley face.
Don't see it if You do not use or understand emojis and what they stand for or you may feel lost.
See it if You like light-hearted subject matter and need something kid friendly. Cute story line and great performances. Worth your time.
Don't see it if You need something serious or more grown up subject matter.
See it if you can look past the surface plot and ponder the show's deeper meanings about society, politics, and systems. So much was allegorical
Don't see it if you want something purely fluffy and fun. I found it a bit depressing.
See it if You like funny songs performed by a top notch cast creating a wacky world inhabited by emojis who live in cell phones.
Don't see it if You like realistic musicals that are deep and emotional.
See it if A few good songs and some good singing but that's about it. Creative and quirky
Don't see it if Made something out of nothing. Have potential but end up baffling. Not much artistic value. Don't understand why NY Times gave critic's pick
See it if you are a young person who enjoys great staging, an energetic cast, great singing/dancing, funny emojo characters, and lighthearted humor.
Don't see it if you are looking for a substantive plot or more than just campy silliness apparently geared to a younger audience.
See it if You’d like to see new work, enjoy musicals, ensemble cast that works well together, would like to be entertained
Don't see it if You are looking for a profound, revelatory show. This is not purely superficial but is not very deep either.
See it if You enjoy a big production with bells and whistles, funny costumes and silly humor, all kinds of B’way musical numbers and lights
Don't see it if If you’d like something more serious and important. The music is okay but all big and loud and that’s too much for me.
See it if you want to see the big names (Margherita, Crumm, Steele, Abud, Lamon) up close or a cool set
Don't see it if you want to see anything profound or want to leave with any song in your head...nothing special
See it if you enjoy an ensemble piece that has a bit more under the surface than expected.
Don't see it if you don't have an open mind. I expected to not understand much because I am not an emoji user but the cast portrayals and story is universal
See it if You like juvenile very broad banal comedic dialogue with unmemorable songs peppered with simple lyrics.
Don't see it if You like your shows with at least a smidge of adult sophistication or intelligence. If you are easily bored then stay away.
See it if You want to see a show with a great message, cast and one that doesn't take itself too serious.
Don't see it if You don't want to see a fun, new kind of show, want something more serious.
See it if ... stellar performances from a hard-working cast, a very few decent songs and jokes, energetic, campy, mindless, second-rate silliness.
Don't see it if Tacky, earnest college attempt, "Gee, emoji's, let's make a musical!" NY Times liked it, but they didn't have to pay for their ticket.
