Funny, Thought-provoking, Clever, Great acting, Riveting

See it if you'd like a funny, smart, entertaining, edgy, creative, well-staged/acted/sung reimagining of AK. I loved it! So did the audience. Brava!

Don't see it if you dislike broad comedy or need high production values (altho costumes are great). Intellig feminist angle. Prodn deserves a wider audience

Must see, Clever, Funny, Great writing, Entertaining

See it if you would like two hours of non-stop dazzlement: spunky music, a young, energetic troupe of actors, laughter, costumes & great direction.

Don't see it if you want this tale untouched by both current writing and music composition brilliance that relates to so much today.

Great acting, Great singing, Ambitious, Delightful, Clever

See it if You want a truly beautifully done adaptation. Funny, smart, and heartbreaking, the lead singer is exquisite and the acting is phenomenal.

Don't see it if Occasional tone issues. The venue is a little rough. Despite the great use of the outside space. The chairs are hard and unpleasant.

Reductive, Tonally uneven, Ambitious, Quirky

See it if you want a quick and lighter version of a Tolstoy classic

Don't see it if you're expecting a full blown comedy or a totally straight-forward adaptation.
