Great staging, Precise & slick, Musical bio, Fantastic lead, cast & ensemble, Beloved music

See it if you enjoy complex musical biographies performed with beauty & integrity. The dancing moves/steps are precision timing.

Don't see it if pop musical bios are not your preferred choice of show.

Great singing, Quirky, Banal, Great acting, Overrated

See it if you like Michael Jackson's music and want to see extraordinary actors perform

Don't see it if you care about storylines and writing because it's slow and honestly just a boring story

Delightful, Entertaining, Cliched, Banal, Ambitious

See it if You love the dancing and music of MJ. The show would have been more amazing if it were just the musical numbers only.

Don't see it if You don’t like sitting through long stretches of expository dialogue that doesn’t do much in the way of story or character at all.
