Edgy, Raunchy, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Disturbing

See it if Gorgeous girls in lingerie recite Shakespeare, dance, and emote, only to be objectified, dehumanized, and dismissed. Sensual and disturbing

Don't see it if You would feel uncomfortable with near nudity on stage. You are looking for a fun time.

8 girls, 8 sonnets, 8 interpretive dances, 8 numbers, 8 titilations, 8 go sit downs, 8 varying attempts at bardlike interp, 8 different looks of lingerie & exposure, 8 different abilities to take on "so you think you can dance"

See it if pseudo immersive look at sex industry & relation to Shakespeare's Sonnets thru recitation & dance & male voice interruptus is a good idea

Don't see it if commenting on patriarchy using partially clad young women who dance & pose suggestively & recite Shakespeare as parlor trick = not good idea
