Original / refreshing, Excellent lyrics, Relevant / resonant, Thought-provoking, Excellent message(s) throughout

See it if you have kids who'd not only enjoy a fun show, but could also learn a few things about self-esteem, bullying, letting go and saying goodbye.

Don't see it if you don't have kids (or nieces/nephews). Good ensemble, fast-moving show, great little theater on the UWS. Perfect theme for Halloween week. Read more

Entertaining, Great singing, Great acting, Great staging, Funny

See it if you don't mind a funny kid-friendly take on the classic tale, yet w/some lessons to spare- by a young talented cast taking on multiple roles

Don't see it if you either don't have a kid to bring to or if going solo- you feel you're too old to appreciate such shows. But the kid-in-us will like it! Read more

For kids, Clever, Surprisingly serious, Quirky, Delightful

See it if you have children (skews slightly older for kids' theater) who can appreciate sober themes in a goofy, creative adaptation with peppy songs.

Don't see it if a parental death (offstage, before the action) seems too intense a subject for your kids, or if you're an adult with no sense of whimsy

Don't see it if You are looking for grand staging
