See it if you want to see a funny, endearing show as relevant today as in the 80's, you're a fan of Urie & Ruehl both exquisite, enjoy gay comedies
Don't see it if gay subject matter turns you off, including simulations of gay sex, not a fan of rapid fire Brooklyn-style zingers, have mother issues

See it if Torch Song is a witty loving play with much to say about important issues that impact both the straight and LGBT communities.

Don't see it if Plays involving a gay,Jewish drag queen and his relationships are not your cup of tea.
See it if you can avoid comparing it to Harvey F, in the lead role. Great attempt to shorten it to meet the needs of the current Broadway audience.

See it if you are moved by a play that is both profound and normal, with a wonderful and flawed hero, and feels as timely now as it did decades ago.
Don't see it if you can't extrapolate how a very specific experience has many universal realities and truths.
