Great singing, Intelligent, Slow, Disappointing

See it if enjoy small musicals that focus on characters instead of fluff. well sung score.

Don't see it if want big splashy musicals, this is intimate. score is one-note and the ghost characters don't add much to the story except as narrators

Absorbing, Disappointing, Moody, Great music, Great singing

See it if You enjoy Indie/Folk-Rock. You are a Duncan Sheik fan. You enjoy intimate plays with music.

Don't see it if You don't enjoy musicals where it feels like the book was written separately from the music. Read more

Disappointing, Good concept, Slow

See it if You're looking for an interesting story (although one that doesn't really match how the show is marketed).

Don't see it if You're looking for a show with a strong pace or a score comparable to the composer's previous works.

Melodic, Eerie, Solemn, Soulful, Innovative

See it if you like Duncan Sheik as a composer and the concept of a musical ghost story. The music is stirring and the set is eerie and intimate.

Don't see it if you need a lot of character development -- not very dimensional. The ghosts are great but their actions become repetitive. Read more

Sometimes hard to watch, Great music, Atmospheric

See it if you like Duncan Sheik (this won't disappoint), amoral ghosts having way too much fun, moody historical atmosphere.

Don't see it if it uses racism as a plot point while still mostly centering the white characters, Mr Yasuhiro is depicted warmly, but not focal.

Pacing seemed off, Melodic, Slow, Great singing, Confusing

See it if nice music, and good performers

Don't see it if so much potential, it needs plenty of work.

Great staging, Great singing, Relevant

See it if The Lightings are sensational and subject matter of racism still relevant. As far as the ghost story it could have gone deeper.

Don't see it if The two ghost singers are good but the songs overall are kinda flat.
