Entertaining, Disappointing, Raunchy, Repetitive, Sexy

See it if You’re with a group of friends celebrating or have an interest in avant-garde dance and costume.

Don't see it if You aren’t looking for homo erotic entertainment. Read more

Homoerotic, Great dancing, Entertaining, Edgy, Suggestive

See it if u want to see a troupe of athletic, nearly-naked, insanely talented men (and 1 show-stealing woman) dancing in a cheeky, energetic burlesque

Don't see it if u don't want to feel shamed into going to the gym [These guys are fit!]; you have issues w/gender fluidity; you have sphinctorestiacophobia.

Entertaining, Edgy, Funny, Quirky, Clever

See it if you enjoy burlesque - all male with one woman here - in an energetic performance with strong dancing, singing & acrobatics in a neat theater

Don't see it if you are offended by near nudity, some cast interaction with the audience, or the overuse of smoke machines. Beverages ad snacks are pricey.

78
Fun, Skilled, Silly, Camp, Acrobatic

See it if you want a fun evening watching barely clad chorus boys flaunt their stuff, plus one impressively acrobatic mezzo.

Don't see it if you want a play: this has no dialog & barely has a scenario. Read more

Great dancing, Sexy, Quirky, Raunchy, Great staging

See it if You love dance theatre and burlesque productions. This company is at the top of their game.

Don't see it if You’re kind of a prude. This is very sexy and there’s audience involvement.

Delightful, Entertaining, Great dancing, Raunchy, Masterful

See it if You want a beautiful show with no dialogue (except for some singing), great dancing, beautiful music, with gorgeous and talented performers.

Don't see it if You don't like half naked performers, smokey (incense) burlesque theaters and no dialogue.

84
"artistic", Cheeky, Skilled, Great staging, Funny

See it if G-stringed boys dancing ala "boylesque" thrill you, like fog/haze like a drink with your kink, appreciate men in tutus, not seen the TROCS

Don't see it if want women 2 people your burlesque, don't like burlesque, Jesus tells you not to, can't take smoke & incense, need upper crust entrtainment

84
Entertaining

See it if YAS, QUEEN, YAAAAASSSSSSS! Flirtatious, almost naked, super lean and flexible men dancing together in a range of impressive routines.

Don't see it if Men in G-strings, heels, eyeliner, gender bending outfits offend you. No real plot, just themes. Incense/smoke by the entrance irritates you Read more

Theatermania
September 10th, 2018

"The company's most polished show to date...The ensemble's often balletic, sometimes wild dance numbers, choreographed by director McCormick, are the spicy meat of the show. But Richardson, the only vocalist in 'Ferdinand,' deserves special mention for bringing the house down in the second act...Those eye-popping routines, plus the show's combination of dance, burlesque, eclectic music, and humor, make for a highly entertaining hour and 45 minutes."

Times Square Chronicles

“Choreographed by director McCormick, the balletic excellence he gets from his cast is athletic perfection. His productions easily rival NYC Ballet or another company. He brings sexuality to the art form, making this a decedent evening of delicious fun. Major and Richardson execute jaw-dropping displays that made this production exquisite. Redmond makes us care for this bull with a softer side...The inventive costumes and the mood setting lighting design by are perfection.”
