Avg Score

Banal, Cliched, Disappointing, Insipid, Slow

See it if I partly watched this show thanks to these other reviews. I feel like this site has no credibility.

Don't see it if This was just terrible

Ambitious, Intelligent, Original, Thought-provoking, Great singing

See it if you like musicals about human struggles

Don't see it if if you are not interested in trauma and struggle

Earnest heartfelt, Adolescent angst, Well-acted

See it if you want to remember what it was like to struggle with growing up, risking in relationships vs. seeking safety in solitude.

Don't see it if you want a traditional Broadway-style song-and-dance show. Mostly lyrical solos and duets here, with two lovely harmonized trios in Act II.

Relevant, Original, Great singing

See it if you like a sweet musical score, and a touching study of how a personal crisis can effect someones entire life and relationships.

Don't see it if you want a light and frothy musical, or require glamorous costumes or fancy sets to entertain you.

Original, Slow, Ambitious, Relevant, Great singing

See it if you like plays about teen angst, but with central character who is unlikeable, and has one note (angst) throughout.

Don't see it if you like upbeat plays. There's a bit of comedy that helps, and strong singing voices throughout. Some moving songs.

Great writing, Original, Thought-provoking, Profound, Relevant

See it if Issues addressed hit close to home or in you enjoy original productions

Don't see it if Shows with a heavy or deep meaning don't interest you or offend you

Great writing, Original, Must see, Relevant, Resonant

See it if You have ever struggled with an inner demon, you are a woman, your life has been touched by eating disorders in some way

Don't see it if you are triggered by trauma, abuse, eating disorders, or body image issues

Clever, Enchanting, Intelligent, Relevant, Resonant

See it if You want to!

Don't see it if You don't want to!

Masterful, Great writing, Absorbing, Intense, Great singing

See it if You understand emotional trauma and the strength it takes to heal. Not want to just survive life, but make it full. Believe music heals.

Don't see it if You don't like to cry in pubic.

Absorbing, Entertaining, Great writing, Relevant, Original

See it if You want fresh perspective on battling illness from inside out with darkness, deepness, and humor.

Don't see it if You hate new musicals or if you have no soul.

"'Full,' a story about struggles and celebration of self, reminds us we are our own hero, that we have the power to get us out of our darkest places. The show is an act of love, and it shows. Though not without its occasional convolution, its honesty and heart top the festival this year...Berger'...
