Edgy, Original, Slow, Confusing, Risque

See it if Very original, risqué, with interesting costumes and sets but confusing and slow. The narration mainly in German only muddled things for me

Banal, Ambitious, Cliched, Confusing, Raunchy

Don't see it if You're offended by partial nudity or are sensitive to the smell of incense.

75
Raunchy, Original

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

90
Great staging, Edgy, Masterful, Original

See it if you are open to a new vision of dance, acrobatics, music, staging…it's 21st Century Burlesque. Risque and visionary.

Don't see it if you are looking for classic interpretations, have an aversion to nudity or sexual situations, and be aware that artificial smoke is involved

68
Entertaining, Disappointing, Slow

See it if you've never seen a XIV show. Nice nods to original fairytale. More glamorous costumes than other productions.

Don't see it if you've seen other XIV shows. This had simpler choreography and the singers were not as good. It felt like they were winding down the season.

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.

68
Original, Raunchy, Slow

See it if You want to see something original with great dancing, avant-garde type semi-burleque. Like small very cool venues and staging.

Don't see it if You don't like nudity or burlesque. Thought it was a little slow but loved the second act. Not sure why it was mostly spoken in german?

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.

Dizzying, Indulgent, Exquisite, Slow

See it if you want a burlesque-inspired show without much regard for story/cohesiveness

Don't see it if you want the story of Snow White

Disappointing, Fluffy, Overrated

See it if you're here for the props and costumes (which are excellent) and don't care for choreography and dancing.

Don't see it if you saw the previous outstanding production - I had hard time believing both were made by the same company.

70
Enchanting, Slow, Refreshing, Original, Ambitious

See it if You love burlesque theatre and something edgy.

Don't see it if you aren't a fan of a slow moving show. The first act is incredibly slow and I love Company XIV, but this isn't their best show.

Clever, Entertaining, Edgy, Indulgent, Original

See it if Beautiful dancing, fun design elements. Really liked the original idea, would like to see other productions with different story.

"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 ...

"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."
