My overall impression

What. A. Rush. A sexy, gorgeous, acrobatic, high-octane, sweaty, sexy (yes, I said sexy twice) RUSH. My mouth was frozen in a delighted-jaw-dropped-smile thing the entire time. House of Rabbits whips the talented ensemble into a frothy frenzy with their hard-driving beats and commanding vocals. Cara Manuele is delightful as Lady Windowmirror with a strikingly clear voice that handles the rhyming scheme exceptionally well and carries us through our torrid tour of the lascivious deeds of Voyeurville’s residents. Cloie Wyatt Taylor shines as Madame Lapin, all at once sexy, playful, graceful, and strong. It was amazing to see so many people on stage all fully owning their bodies and their sexuality, and having such a great time. Angela Lopez and Andrea Luna’s choreography is a fantastic blend of storytelling burlesque, acrobatic partnering, and a GORGEOUS silks routine in the middle of the show that left the audience cheering. Director Brandon Baruch has fucking done it again (last year’s No Homo was a Fringe and personal favorite). Baruch’s lighting design is, of course, amazing, and Laura Wong’s costume design is pitch perfect, with stylized masks by Angela Lopez that I am obsessed with. The animal imagery made me feel like the whole show was a whacked-out, hyper-sexual fable. I will definitely be trying to see this show again before Fringe is out. Bravo all around!! I think I used a form of the word sex about 8 times in this review!
