A racy pole-dancing alternative to the familiar Yuletide ballet
Nothing says wintertime like the Nutcracker. Nothing says R-rated like the Nutcracker Rouge. Tchaikovsky’s production has gotten a lot of makeovers over the years, but Company XIV takes the cake for most hedonistic. The Brooklyn troupe spins the familiar two-act tale into a risqué aerobic extravaganza with burlesque, corsets, and glittery G-strings aplenty. Naughty or nice? Not even a question. Best available seating allocated by the venue on arrival. Over 16s only.
"Company XIV puts a neo-Baroque spin — think wigs, garters, corsets — on Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet."
