See it if you like therapeutic love stories. I wanted to root for a happy ending but having actors play the normal & neurotic sides of the 2 leads ...
Don't see it if you're expecting a polished show. It's a great idea but needs lots more development.
See it if interested in mental illnesses. Want to see them represented by separate actors. Want to see some new actors.
Don't see it if want a fully developed show. Want a complicated story.
See it if you love eating/drinking during the show, go with a group, and love pop-rock modern musical feels and deep stories.
Don't see it if you want a very staged production, long story, or feel-good musical.
See it if you love hearing amazing singers sing from the heart, you love love, or if you have ever loved someone and not been loved back (hurts)
Don't see it if you are looking for perfection; this isn't perfect yet. But for the NYMF beta musicals/concerts, it is my only 100 score. I saw them all.
See it if you like new musical theatre, you're interested in mental health, you're a straight Millennial.
Don't see it if you'd like to follow a narrative and learn more about the characters.
See it if You have an interest in mental health, you know someone in the cast, you REALLY like sentimental ballads. Like a lot of sentimental ballads.
Don't see it if You are looking for character development, you prefer unpredictable lyrics, you tire of saccharine ballads, you are looking to be challenged
See it if you like the feels of complicated relationships between friends; you enjoy "standing O" performances from the male and female leads
Don't see it if u are looking for a finished product; there is a reason why NYMF does beta musicals/concerts; with edits and work this could go all the way
See it if You are excited for the future of musical theatre, you want to experience new work from amazing artists, you want to see a fantastic show
Don't see it if You want a show that is full produced and developed or an old-timey musical
See it if You like shows like Dear Evan Hansen, Next to Normal; shows that make you think. If you like contemporary musical theatre music!
Don't see it if You want a fluffy musical with no substance
See it if You love realistic yet hopeful stories. The music and lyrics are clever and soul-stirring. The melodies have been in my head since seeing it
Don't see it if Just see for yourself. Couldn't disagree more with the negative reviewer. Thought it was honest and authentic.
