Disappointing, Great dancing, Romantic, Raunchy, Sexy

See it if You’ve never seen this company before. They do great dance/burlesque/cirque work, even if this production isn’t their best.

Don't see it if You’re a prude or dislike audience involvement.

Delightful, Enchanting, Hilarious, Amazing dancing, Ambitious

See it if you enjoy clever dance performances with a burlesque overlay. The performers are multi-talented and enthusiastic.Their best show so far!

Don't see it if partial nudity and sexual innuendo upsets you. Also you need to leave a lot of time to get to their inconveniently located Brooklyn theater.

89
Edgy, Great staging, Great singing, Masterful, Quirky

See it if Austin McCormick creates his tasteful adult ballet/burlesque fantasy with a pop/classical soundtrack. Stay seated for the break, it's fun.

Don't see it if Baroque takes on pop tunes like Sia and Lana Del Rey. Beware sketchy Brooklyn neighbourhood. Cast changes from years past affect '18 edition

Entertaining, Delightful, Raunchy, Indulgent, For those who love the rich & baroque over the severe & obscure

See it if you’re planning a date night that makes you look like you can curate the artsiest goings-on in Brooklyn; are a greedy sensualist or artist.

Don't see it if you really need to be persuaded. Not for everyone—cirque, modern dance, nudity, younger crowds, & feeling like you need to work out more.

Also No script. Sheer spectacle. Scan the site/press photography to figure ... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Masterful, Delightful, Ambitious

See it if It is visually delightful. Gorgeous bodies. Anyone who likes semi nudity and risque humor will appreciate this.

Don't see it if If you are uptight, this is not for you.

Ambitious, Dizzying, Fluffy

See it if The story becomes secondary while a lot of bells & whistles roam on stage. That proverbial window dressing is fun but wears out quickly.

Don't see it if Sexual aspect is well staged but it also has to connect with the material and story without boring the audience. I was eying the exit sign.

Great staging, Edgy, Raunchy, Refreshing, Masterful

See it if You want great choreography. This was a very nice production.

Don't see it if Seeing ass and tits bothers you.

Absorbing, Enchanting, Entertaining, Raunchy, Sexy

See it if you love when shows remind you of the thrill of living and breathing in NYC, swimming among some of the most-talented humans on Earth!

Don't see it if naked bodies, sexuality, and twisted versions of classic stories aren't your thing.

Entertaining, Funny, Great staging, Raunchy, Quirky

See it if enjoy immersive burlesque with great staging, singing, dancing, costumes, and Cirque de Soleil acrobatics. Utterly entertaining!

Don't see it if you are uptight and don't enjoy seeing a little human flesh.

Enchanting, Entertaining, Exquisite, Sexy, Wonderful

See it if you want a sultry, sexy naughty evening extravaganza of burlesque and opulent queerness with lovely staff in a sumptuous environment.

Don't see it if you're offended by mild gender bending nude fun. Or if you're expecting a higher quality of burlesque from previous performances. A bit weak

78
Raunchy, Quirky, Edgy, Entertaining, Dizzying

See it if you want a raunchy inspired version of Cinderella, using the best of adult-themed burlesque, gymnastics and drag. Incredible production

Don't see it if drag, semi-nudity or burlesque would offend - if not, this is a great exhibition of the art. Very expensive drinks in TWO intermissions...

Delightful, Indulgent, Entertaining, Fluffy

See it if you like burlesque with some dancing and singing. This show has more concept than action. Less acrobat than previous productions

Don't see it if you like more refined choreography and more acrobats

93
Sexy welcoming baroque burlesque in a comfortable setting!, Dazzling bodies live and dance, acrobats, fantastic costumes and staging!, Just run and luxuriate in this lovely club, comfy and funky setting.

See it if You like adventure, sexiness, great dancing, choreography, modern takes on classics. You appreciate comfortable new plush chairs and sofas!

Don't see it if If you're conservative and staid. Fearful of sexiness in front of you.

Edgy, great dancing, great sets, great costumes, suffocating

See it if YOU CAN TAKE INCENSE AND MUSK SO OPPRESSIVE YOU MAY HAVE TO BREATHE THROUGH YOUR MOUTH. I had to leave 15 minutes in.

Don't see it if YOU CANNOT BREATHE with incense so thick you cannot hardly see.

Also I just returned from Bushwick to the Upper East Side. I was a guest an... Read more Read less

See it if you want to experience something unusual, and if you're looking for a chance to explore Bushwick's artistic scene

Don't see it if you're looking to see something with deep meaningful message, and if you have a problem with nudity

Disappointing, Overrated

See it if a burlesque interpretation of a fairy tale sounds fun; you want a light evening out

Don't see it if you want edgy burlesque or innovative movement, you're bothered by near-nudity

Also Lilin (who played the stepmother in the performance I saw) was great -... Read more Read less

"Has a super cast, full of charismatic performers and extraordinary dancers. But the show’s two lengthy intermissions (and two bars) suggest we’re meant to spend most of our time buying signature Company XIV cocktails, perhaps to let alcohol numb us to the repetitiveness of what we’re seeing...Th...

"There are some amusing touches throughout, including the appearance of the stepsisters inside a giant skeletal pannier, a curtain half-raised to reveal the lower legs of those hoping to win the prince, a pole dance for Cinderella, and a fairly lively can-can. Overall, however, the atmosphere of ...
