See it if you want a fun production of a classic! Christian Borle and Audrey II stole the show!

Don't see it if you want a strong female lead. I was disappointed with Tammy Blanchard, but still thought the show was great.

See it if you're looking for an up close theater experience with on point vocals and great staging. Each actor knocks it out of the park.

Quirky, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You love this beloved musical and want to see it as its authors intended-- off the beaten track and Off-Broadway. Bigness dilutes its charm.

Don't see it if You are looking for either Ellen Greene as Audrey or an over-sung Audrey. Tammy Blanchard is brilliant, but different. Or if you want "BIG!"

Also More on Tammy Blanchard-- Thank god she makes this her own, with shade... Read more Read less

Refreshing, Funny, Delightful, Clever

See it if You finally get to see the show as it was intended to be --- in a small intimate venue with respectful homages paid to its original.

Don't see it if You won't be seeing any trace of Ellen Greene as Tammy Blanchard breaks the mold with her own original and exceptionally well done take.

Entertaining, Enchanting, Great singing, Delightful, Funny

See it if you are a fan of this classic show. Singing, staging, and set were all excellent in an intimate setting. All performances were so well done!

Don't see it if looking for a new or re-invented take on the show. It sticks close to the original formula. Pass if you don't enjoy slapstick and camp.

Bad audio, Dated, Fluffy, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if You like the best song in Off Broadway history—Suddenly Seymour—or you want to see a funny, cleverly done animatronic plant!

Don't see it if You don’t like campy shows or shows that were never fully developed.

Also Gideon Glick is very good as Seymour (and I hear the same about Jonath... Read more Read less

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

See it if for pure enjoyment in an intimate setting. It was hard to tell who was having more fun between the audience and the actors.

Don't see it if you want a deep, thought provoking show or if you expect a big Broadway type of musical. The intimate setting is perfect.

Also Jonathan Groff was perfect and didn't seem like he was acting. However... Read more Read less

Don't see it if You don’t like to have fun at the theater

Funny, Great writing, Entertaining

See it if you've never seen the show live on stage or if you've seen it and want to see a new take on the role of Audrey.

Don't see it if you LOVED the original and are looking for a revival with no real vision.

Great singing, Hilarious, Great staging, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You want to laugh out loud. If you love Christian Borle and want to see him ham it up. Love seeing a show in a small venue.

Don't see it if ...if you did not like the movie. There’s really no reason not to see it.

Great acting, Disappointing, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You love a Christian Borle. Every time he is on stage, he lights up the show.

Don't see it if You’ve seen the show and movie many times before. Although it was entertaining enough, there were few surprises to justify seeing it again.

"CRITIC’S PICK "Jonathan Groff Feeds the Beast: Michael Mayer’s revitalizing revival of this genially gruesome classic becomes a sly morality tale for the age of universal celebrity."

4/5 Stars "Mayer has wrangled a marvelous cast…Groff's Seymour is a likable klutz with just a hint of deadpan creepiness…Christian Borle solidifies his status as the preeminent musical-theater clown of his generation...And Blanchard is a revelation...She's the heart of the production."

"The show’s most charming quality is its feeling of having been put on for the hell of it. I’m sure it’s going to make money. It’s a dream cast of consummate pros. But — and my eyes look like hearts while I type this — the infectious energy is pure amateur."
