Raunchy, Clever, Slow, Imaginative, Strange

See it if If you like beautiful gender bending ballet and circus arts. Nudity, gorgeous bodies. Most imaginative & creative multi media. Truly unique!

Don't see it if you want a fast paced, traditional story. Exquisite PARTS a don't add up to exquisite WHOLE. This one is weird but enchanting. Too long.

Raunchy, Original

See it if you like avant guarde theater. Performers are great. The show has ballet, opera, jazz, circus acrobatics all mixed.

Don't see it if you object to partial nudity and sexual innuendo. Loose adaptation of classic.

Entertaining, Cliched, Clever, Raunchy, Refreshing

See it if Snow White in Pasties was the children's story you always wanted to hear read by Lili Saint Cyr. Stylish circus acts and burlesque fun.

Don't see it if Atmospheric smoke and one too many interpretive dance pieces have you feeling like you're trapped at the Met in Tannhauser's Venusberg.

The New York Times
February 4th, 2016

"Despite these tempting ingredients, this 'Snow White' is a dull tease, lasting two hours…This episodic structure occasions more disguises for the Queen and more pastiche numbers: ersatz Baroque, ersatz Pina Bausch, ersatz flamenco. But these numbers are devoid of dramatic pressure, not to speak of poetry, invention, wit or even sexiness…This isn’t just style without substance; it’s style without style."

"His work is clearly informed by art and culture transcending time and nationality, much of it the best of the best. Yet under the director's unfocused staging, we're never quite sure where to look, and key moments of the story are inevitably lost...This 'Snow White' is not the fairest of them all."

"Add dancing boys in fishnets, an ensemble sporting bejeweled ball gags, a bit of pole dancing and a freshly irreverent attitude and McCormick's new take on a classic tale is steamy dose of theatrical foreplay...In the hands of Company XIV, 'Snow White'is a ravishing mood piece that is sure to get couples in the mood."

"Hilly Bodin is a lively and lovely Snow White, but both she and Careless are overwhelmed by frenetic spectacle...The hour-long first act does minimally impart the basic elements of Snow White...The fast-paced 30-minute second act is series of circus vignettes including a thrilling hoop routine and acrobatic dancing...Though lacking directness on the actual story, Company XIV’s 'Snow White' is overall entertaining, occasionally exhilarating, and is very similar to their other works."

"'Snow White' is a mixed bag of rewards and regrets...There are plenty of taunting tits and tremulous asses on display...They regrettably do not serve as distractions enough to the writhing, undulating, groveling and grinding that the choreographer has imposed on the cast...Watching a corps of lithe and toned bodies in motion, either contorting or consorting has its place, but also its limits."

Theatre is Easy
February 2nd, 2016

"This dazzling one of a kind dance piece mixes burlesque, baroque, ballet, acrobatics, and musical theater to create a new take on the Snow White tale that manages to be both edgy and erotic while also whimsical and dreamy...In the end the Snow White tale seems to merely be a narrative to string together some visually stunning song and dance numbers put on by a talented and classically trained cast."

Theater Pizzazz
February 2nd, 2016

"So dazzlingly staged but so frustratingly choppy, this explosion of light S&M, clever music arrangements, and often, with a few notable exceptions, technically unimpressive dance is perhaps too ambitious for its own good...Rapturous spectacle and superb technique near the end of the show."

Stage Buddy
February 8th, 2016

"The ingenuity of Austin McCormick -- the choreographer, Artistic Director and founder of Company XIV -- shines in Company XIV’s production of 'Snow White'...With the sumptuous 'Snow White' wrapping up an ambitious season for Company XIV, it would be a shame to miss out...Bask in the delights of McCormick and company."
