See it if you don’t mind sitting through uneven performances in order to hear the songs that put Lin-Manuel Miranda on the map.
Don't see it if you have to pay more than $20. You saw it on Broadway. You’d be unhappy with a show that’s more of a staged concert than a revival
See it if you enjoy wonderful musicals, with very talented young performers who give it their all.
Don't see it if you have a problem with loud music. There was something wrong with the sound system making the sound hard on the ears.
Also Just see it.

Don't see it if If you are looking for well executed, professional theater. Musically, actors did not hit their marks, but they were loveable non the less

Don't see it if you care about music, dance, acting, or your ears.
See it if you love musicals, esp. those involving the Latino culture; you like stories about following your dreams while maintaining relationships.
Don't see it if you dislike Latino culture/music or hip-hop, you need elaborate stages or costumes in your musicals, you have bad hearing.
See it if You want to take a look at Lin-Manuel Miranda's early work. Songs are Hamilton-styled. The acting and singing are great!
Don't see it if You don't like a great work carried out in a very cheap production. I repeat, very cheap, which reduces the quality of acting and singing.
See it if you want a solid community theatre caliber replica of the phenomenal B'way musical on a much smaller scale.
Don't see it if you want a live orchestra, or next level greatness, charm & cheekiness the likes of Mandy Gonzasles, Chris Jackson, LMM.
See it if You would like to see problems of young people, and such wonderful energy brought to the stage, met with Lin Manuel-Miranda's writing.
Don't see it if You cannot keep up with fast singing, dislike rap music, or desire a more "Broadway" sound.
See it if you want to pretend you're seeing the strong voices, professional staging & lighting & good choreography that do this amazing show justice.
Don't see it if bad singing, dim lighting w/ some numbers performed almost in the dark, chaotic dancing and blocking and a hot theater bother you.
See it if You like the stories from In The Heights, this show really captures the spirit of the original in a fresh way.
Don't see it if You're looking for Hamilton. Lin's pre-Hamilton work is very different...still brilliant, but different.
