See it if You're into workshopping new work, and want to have a passionate discussion about the past 10 years as the dinner table after the show.
Don't see it if You're put off by Baby Boomer-centrism; you want to see a show "as-is" rather than as "it might be."
See it if you like songs about economics

"As the theater echoes with Giancarlo de Trizio’s plastic-tub percussion, and dancing, chanting performers beckon us onstage, we feel as though we’ve become part of a lively protest...'Zuccotti Park' maintains this inclusive energy throughout...While the musical tries to clarify some of the issues in which Occupy took root, often via satirical song-and-dance numbers, it is through these personal tales that Zuccotti Park truly shines."
"A failed attempt to conquer the daunting task of establishing equilibrium between addressing important social issues and formulating a source for song and dance that will provide enjoyable entertainment...The book and lyrics by Catherine Hurd, although still relevant, are old news...The music by Vatrena King is less than pedestrian...At this stage, this production does not provide any insightful ideas nor does it provide enough engaging entertainment."
"In the spirit of productions like 'Rent' and 'Hair,' 'Zuccotti Park' is a welcome addition to the musical that cares…Wonderfully crafted with soul-stirring numbers, 'Zuccotti Park' electrified the crowd, resonating with the soul of revolution. Brian Kinnard as Tom, a homeless veteran singing 'I’m Your Hero,' has a show stopping number. Director Luis Salgado and the entire ensemble bring justice and fervor to a movement that can no longer be ignored."
