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.

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. Read more

Time Out New York
March 12th, 2018

"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...The show has moments of real beauty...But too much relies on a small vocabulary of movement...It’s a surprisingly unsensual show...Without naughtiness, the magic goes away."

"Company XIV is engaged in executing very well-constructed illusions, designed to take audiences into another world...''Cinderella' succeeds marvelously...Acrobatics, visually stunning tableaux, and a spectacular ensemble in this sexy, cheekily naughty adaptation...The ensemble performs McCormick's eye-popping choreography like revelers overcome by the unbridled energy in the room...The most unique, sophisticated, and riotously fun date-night show running in New York right now."

"When they finally meet, the breathtaking pas de deux they perform on a lyra hoop is enhanced by the sumptuous vocals of a bluesy diva named Storm, who plays the Fairy Godmother with earthy sensuality...As always, the XIV ensemble is full of charismatic dancers who balance bawdiness and elegance in a variety of styles...Their charms are properly displayed with divine decadence by the company's long-time set and costume designer and the evocative lighting."

Lighting & Sound America
March 19th, 2018

"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 calculated naughtiness becomes rather wearying, and the quality of the choreography isn't high enough to keep one engaged for the two-hour running time."

The New York Times
October 5th, 2015
For a previous production

"Scenes and character entrances are announced silently via chalkboard title cards, held saucily aloft by very sparkly, very scantily clad showgirls and showboys...The ensemble contributes lots of wit and intensity to the choreography, but it is the gymnastic moves by the leads that bring down the house."

October 5th, 2015
For a previous production

"This is a highly eroticized telling of Charles Perrault's baroque fairytale, but never one that sinks into smuttiness...The loose plot allows for multiple extended dance sequences, staged by McCormick with healthy doses of playfulness, allure and danger."

Theatre is Easy
October 2nd, 2015
For a previous production

"At close to two and a half hours, the show does sometimes drag. Two intermissions are unnecessary, and some of the dance numbers feel overly long. But the dancers are uniformly gorgeous and wonderfully accomplished, and the choreography is crisp and innovative. McCormick's vision is clear and cohesive throughout the whole show."

Stage Buddy

For a previous production

"Company XIV’s 'Cinderella' is a gorgeous spectacle, a one-of-a-kind rendering of a beloved fairy tale, and just an all-around badass theatre experience. You won’t be able to resist the whole confetti and glitter-filled production."
