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 love dancing in musicals. I found this show overrated and disappointing. It was not horrible but with all the hype I expected better.
Don't see it if you hate hip hop.
See it if you're on board with quite a bit of ego posturing that feels more actor than character driven in the name of telling this so-so W-H tale.
Don't see it if you really need the score to go somewhere-- it keeps feeling like it will and never does. Easily confusing for some. Winning in parts. Slow.
See it if You are connected to Latin American culture
Don't see it if An obnoxious drunk woman is sitting in front of you singing along through the show (pretty sure this is a major reason why I disliked it)
See it if You really love In The Heights no matter what the production value, or want to support community thtr, or if they get the sound system fixed
Don't see it if They don't get the sound system fixed, or you are holding out for a professional production. They're trying hard, but results are meh
See it if you can embrace the ethnic flare; you miss the original; you need a piece to be sweet and charming
Don't see it if you expect the OBC quality, new guys are good, but not THAT good, mediocre from the tech standpoint(budget, what budget??)
