Absorbing, Ambitious, Entertaining, Exquisite, Raunchy

See it if You love burlesque and the male form. It is almost all male with the exception of one female later in the show. It is inventive and fun!

Don't see it if You do not like male nudity, sensuality, and/or burlesque. It is a bit of a raunchy time and it may be too much for some audiences.

"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."

“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.”
