Clever, Entertaining, Great costumes, Amazing dancing, Erotic

See it if Expensively-produced burlesque show -inventive fun with the classic tale of Ferdinand. Pure delight if you like sexy men / visual spectacle

Don't see it if This is an elaborate dance piece - so if you need a full narrative skip. Avoid if you can't lighten up about campy fun with gender / sex

Also I'd never been to Theater XIV before and it's a terrifically designed ... Read more Read less

Enchanting, Exquisite, Entertaining

See it if You crave Marcy Richardson singing opera while doing tricks on a hoop up in the air at least once a year.

Don't see it if You don't like sexy cabaret. You expect a fully developed dramatic story.

Also Unlike the previous productions of XIV, this one is dance-heavy and wi... Read more Read less

Funny, Delightful, Enchanting, Raunchy, Entertaining

See it if u like a nearly all nude male cast in an all dance show. Act 1's music is taped,2 has vocals. Clever adult version of a child's story. Sexy.

Don't see it if Homophobic. If Company XIV is your cup of tea, you will enjoy this short night out. Terrific cast, creative dancing. Good and erotic.

78

Don't see it if You don’t want to trek all the way out to Bushwick

78
Raunchy, Entertaining

See it if XIV fan service appeals to you, or the idea of undressed drag queens. Muscles and glitter.

Don't see it if you don’t like boys. Seriously. Also more niche, less varied, & shorter than some of XIV's other shows.

Also Second half is better. Lots of catwalking in the first half. I wish so... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Quirky, Raunchy, Disappointing, Great staging

See it if I love company XIV. This show was not the best of this company. It would be a good time if you never saw Austin's other work.

Don't see it if See it if it's your only chance to see Company XIV. Otherwise wait for their next show.

72

Don't see it if you’re not willing to truck to Brooklyn for a sexy, edgy, fun fantasy

70
Disappointing, Slow, Fluffy, Great dancing, Wonderfully designed

See it if you love what Company XIV does and has to offer because it's worth seeing if you're a fan of their work and/or style. The guys are hot too!

Don't see it if you want to see Company XIV deliver their brand of storytelling with striptease. There is almost no stripping, so it gets dull fast.

Indulgent, Banal, Cliched, Overrated

See it if Never seen this troupe before, you can see it, I guess.

See it if You'd like this show if you'd like seeing guys with little clothing engage in creative choreography.

Don't see it if Don't see this show if you do not like seeing gorgeous guys dance in little clothing.

Don't see it if Bare-bottomed boys high-kicking in heels. In Bushwick, take the "L" to Jefferson and walk 2 short blocks. (95 min. w/ a 20 min. break).
