See it if You need to get out of the rain.
Don't see it if You're looking for a poignant story from 9/11. There were many, and this delivers none of it. It's trite, difficult to hear, insipid music
See it if you want to relive 9/11 on any level. Ambitious script, sort of leaves you hanging. Could have been better. Bit childish and manipulative.
Don't see it if your connection to 9/11 is too personal & you find any re-telling of that week disrespectful. We weren't offended, just disappointed.
See it if you are interested on a new musical's take (however narrow and at many times cliche) on 9/11.
Don't see it if you are interested in a more mature and nuanced take on a musicalized 9/11...the material does not support the weight of the event.
See it if you want to see actors struggle with underdeveloped characters and have to sing some really insipid lyrics and mostly lousy music.
Don't see it if You have no patience for mediocrity. You don't mind lyrics about subways going "clickety clack."
