Great acting, Thought-provoking, Romantic, Slow, Great singing

See it if you like the story in songs where some were powerful, some very lovely and sweet, and some sounded the same. Intimate feeling to the theater

Don't see it if you don't like too much singing of some long songs that sounds repetitive.

Also Good voices and singing all around. For a couple of the songs the key ... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Delightful, Enchanting, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if You like a cast of talented actors with a story line and musical song numbers in between. The lead actor playing Frankenstein was great.

Don't see it if You like modernized twists on stories. And movement within the aisles of a play or stage

79
Enchanting, Intelligent, Entertaining, Enjoyable, Committed

See it if You like modern music around retelling a of old tales, a cast who were “all in” with their performances, creative use of space for staging

Don't see it if You need fancy sets, perfect singing, don’t care for modern music

Ambitious, Great writing, Entertaining, Great singing, Great staging

See it if You want to see a show with potential. Like experimental imstrumentation. Want to see the original story told.

Don't see it if You want perfection and are not into off-Broadway smaller productions.

Ambitious, Great acting, Slow, Great singing

See it if you want to see a new take of 'Frankenstein' with some catchy songs and great acting.

Don't see it if you want something new and different. It does what it says on the tin.

Indulgent, Disappointing, Great singing

See it if you have a keen interest in this famous tale

Don't see it if you are expecting a new twist on the dated story of Frankenstein

60
Ambitious, Indulgent, Disappointing

See it if You’re desperate to see a Frankenstein tale that focuses on Mary Shelley.

Don't see it if “Frankenstein: The Musical” makes you expect a musical version of Frankenstein.

Also Robert Fairchild’s artistry needs support from the text

59
Ambitious, Confusing, Disappointing, Slow

See it if You like live music, are ok with a semi-professional production and don't need the Monster to be even remotely scary.

Don't see it if You have other options for the evening, get easily distracted, or can't sit still if the production isn't exactly riveting.

Also I really wanted to like this show but they lost me in the first five m... Read more Read less

Funny, Disappointing, Slow

See it if you have absolutely nothing else to do. I used funny to describe it but I don't think it was meant to be funny

Don't see it if you enjoy good theater

50
Ambitious, Banal, Confusing

See it if you follow every Frankenstein story and want to see a bold musical based on this familiar classic.

Don't see it if you are looking for something of high quality that is meaningful, unique, entertaining or thought-provoking.

49
Banal, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if Don't. Not tuneful. Not clever. Nothing new to add to the Frankenstein canon.

Don't see it if Not worthwhile.

48
Banal, Disappointing

See it if you like the story and are Frankenstein crazy

Don't see it if you are hard of hearing because you will not hear half the cast.

24
Raunchy, Disappointing, Overrated, Slow

See it if Dont see it...anyway over

Don't see it if You can get tickets for anything else

20
Intense, Great writing, Banal, Disappointing

See it if You are dying to see an adaptation of the book and are okay watching crummy singers try to act.

Don't see it if You love the book. It's one of my favorites and I was extremely disappointed by the book. The score was pretty good, but the actors weren't.

Ambitious, Epic, Disappointing, Cliched, Dated

See it if You like the classics trying to be great

Confusing, Disappointing

See it if If you have too much free time and love wasting money. If you’re a fan of weird choreography go ahead. If you want to support small cast.

Don't see it if I couldn’t tell if the it was the bad acting or the awful dialogue that ruined the show for me. A highschool could do better.

Don't see it if You're easily frightened or a stickler to the classic plot.

100
For a previous production
Clever, Great acting, Masterful, Great writing, Great staging

See it if You enjoy serious content and are prepared to be intellectually challenged. This show deals with philosophical issue of Creator and Creation

Don't see it if If you think it's just gross to make a human out of dead bodies' leftovers. If your relugion doesn't allow that kind of exploration.

For a previous production
Ambitious, Clever, Edgy

See it if you like live music and percussion.

Don't see it if no reason not to see it.

100
For a previous production
Great acting, Masterful, Riveting, Entertaining, Great staging

See it if you are into horror and intelligent, thoughtful plays. It is, hands down, one of the most thrilling shows I've ever seen on stage.

Don't see it if you are easily offended. It gets into some pretty deep topics, nudity, theological questions, and a horrific rape scene.

For a previous production
Original, Clever, Great acting, Great writing, Entertaining

See it if You want to be entertained. See beautiful costumes, good writing and singing. You want to hear an interesting take on Frankenstein.

See it if You want to see the story done in a new refreshing way. If you can leave preconceived ideas home. If you want to see a good story

Don't see it if You are a theatre snob, have preconceived ideas. If you think you've seen it all or are not a fan of musicals.

Also You just don't think of "musical" and Frankenstein in the same sentenc... Read more Read less
