Exquisite, Great singing, Clever, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if You’re a fan of either Bond’s cabaret style or Costanzo’s opera, together they are glorious! A clever, witty, almost profound evening.

Don't see it if You’re homophobic or transphobic. These two let their freak flags fly in all their glory and we are all the better because of it! Read more

Indulgent, Great singing, Banal, Ambitious

See it if If you like a cabaret show that has vast costumes. Cabaret/ operatic. Great lighting, sound makes art of it enjoyable.

Don't see it if Can be wearing at times, gender identity and other issues digress from the vocals and the show in general.

The New York Times
September 25th, 2021

"The show finds both obvious humor and a dissonant beauty in combining sounds. Under Thomas Bartlett’s brilliantly agile music direction, nimble arrangements by Nico Muhly and Daniel Schlosberg flit seamlessly from plucked strings to erotic disco beats."

"Bond has similarly inspired me with their artistic fearlessness and unapologetic individuality. It shouldn't surprise us that these two artists are defying genres to create a show that is entertaining, sophisticated, and completely original. There should be more collaborations like this."

New York Stage Review
September 24th, 2021

"Somewhat late in the dizzying program Bond and Costanzo take solo turns. Bond does a grand and heartfelt job joining “I’m Always Chasing Rainbows” (the melody derived from Frederic Chopin’s Fantasie Impromptu Op. 66, of course) to “Rainbow Sleeves.” Costanzo throws himself into a challenging bit of Mozart, singing both male and female parts."
