See it if You’re a huge Paul Simon fan and would be happy hearing snippets of his music sung by someone else.
Don't see it if You expect any kind of engaging story or wit or details of Paul Simon’s life that a shallow dive on Wikipedia would give you.
See it if u want to hear a Paul Simon devotee adeptly cover a handful of Simon & Garfunkel & solo Simon songs in a graceful yet unexceptional concert.
Don't see it if you expect any true insight or analysis of the revered singer's relationship with Art or the art of songwriting.
See it if You like tribute shows and Paul Simon
Don't see it if You expect much story, or if you're expecting something fringy. This doesn't rise to the level of a theatrical production.
