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

Don't see it if You are offended by nudity or burlesque.

69
Banal, Ambitious, Cliched, Confusing, Raunchy

See it if Laura Careless peerlessly portrays the Queen more Lea Halle then ever before fantastic Act II aerial work

Don't see it if you are drunk or high you are not drunk or high the most perplexing of the three Company XIV productions

69
Confusing, Edgy, Great staging, Slow, Entertaining

See it if you would like to see an adult interpretation of snow white delivered mostly in a different language

Don't see it if you expect a full on burlesque show.

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.

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?

69
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

69

"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."
