Leave your judgements at home and revel in this oppulent romp through a truly horrifying historical Dennis the Menace. I attended opening night. The 40's porno in the background may be overkill, as well as some of the costume enhancements, as the acting and dancing is more than enough to relay the feeling of extreme debauchery. What is not horrifying is the amazing experience of being up close and personal to voices among the finest I have heard, dancers that are professional and precise in their intensity (particularily the Furies, for whom I have great respect) and the comedic talents that gave the lightness needed to relieve some of the seamier business of our (sic) hero. The venue is just, well, I suspect unusual even for NYC, although I will say after seeing Sleep No More the night before, I can't wait for my next visit from Portland Oregon to see what you all can cook up for a full sensory experience! I offer an overall BRAVO to cast and crew!
