Absorbing, Intelligent, Great writing, Great staging, Great singing

See it if You’re into new musicals, and would like to learn something that you might not already know about a scientific female icon.

Don't see it if Not into musicals, or are looking for a large scale show with special effects and large choreographed dance numbers.

Quirky, Refreshing, Absorbing

See it if You like musical infotainment. I watched mostly for knowing more about Marie Curie and was satiated. The live orchestra was on point too.

Don't see it if You want an upbeat musical. Some scenes felt better off talking rather than singing.

Fast paced, Sobering, Terrific orchestral musicians, Wonderful cast, Sung-through

See it if you enjoy historical bios. A lovely look at one of history's finest scientists & the difficult fight that women are still engaged in today.

Don't see it if your preference is light hearted fun musicals.

Dated, Cliched

See it if you want to see a show with 'timeless' (oldfashioned) soundtrack showing the life of Marie Curie without deepdive in the characters

Don't see it if You like energetic shows or want to see character development.

Cliched, Banal, Disappointing, Excruciating, Painful

See it if You've money to burn, and like heavy footed interpretive dance, or you like terrible costumes.

Don't see it if You like to engage with a story, you like music, you have eyes.

Intimate, Fresh, Educational, Absorbing, Gripping

See it if You want to see something new and raw in an intimate space that will make you think as well as be entertained.

Don't see it if You want a fully polished musical. This is a mature work in progress and a credit to all. A few tweaks and it will be great
