Enchanting, Great singing, Must see

Don't see it if You're longing for a radical new interpretation of the film. This is innovative but true to the movie you know.

Fluffy, Overrated, Insipid

See it if you are a seven year old girl who is relatively unsophisticated--or if you have memorized the Disney cartoon from start to finish.

Don't see it if you are hoping for dazzling creativity, amazing special effects (rather pedestrian), or new songs to rival "Let It Go". Not the best Disney.

Must see, Great singing, Enchanting

See it if want to be blown away by the singing. The new songs are awesome, although they need a few lyric tweaks.

Entertaining, Fluffy, Fun

See it if You (or loved ones) love Frozen. You want to see the savvy, craftul evolution of a fun piece from animation to theme park show to Broadway.

Don't see it if you expect massive departures from the film's source material. Some nice new songs, but mostly played it safe in translating to the stage.

See it if You exist. The play isn’t centered around “let it go” like the movie was, which magnified the story. Fantastic propsa- I want to see it agai

Don't see it if I really can’t explain who shouldn’t see it
