What makes this show so sinfully delightful?

By Andrew Andrews

Company XIV is perhaps best known for Nutcracker Rouge, a somewhat naughty, sensual interpretation of the classic Christmas tale, full of song, dance, acrobatics and a hearty dose of exposed skin.

Of course, the holidays aren’t the only time of year to get hot & bothered, so to warm things up for the coming spring, XIV now presents Seven Sins.

For about the price of a ticket to a hit musical, you’re treated to a multitude of performance styles that celebrate the carnality of the human body, in a setting decidedly more opulent, decadent and intimate than your typical Broadway theatre—especially if you choose the premium seating closer to the stage.

Part cabaret, part circus, part peep show, Seven Sins brings the story of Adam & Eve to life before tracing the couple through a series of acts that vividly illustrate the so-called “seven deadly sins.”

Beyond the title and subject matter, there’s a lot to make this show sinfully delightful. Without giving away too many surprises, here’s what you can expect:
