Very explicit with full nudity. That didn't bother me but be forewarned. Not much of a story line. Some people walked out.

A thought-provoking and visually interesting staging of this classic yet considered taboo material. The only detriment is attendance by an immature audience that really shouldn't be there. The row behind me laughed throughout (it is not a...continued

Once my husband and I got past the titillation interest factor, we got pretty bored.

WOW !!!!!!!! I read a bit about the author before attending and must say, I found it riveting and mesmerizing and appreciate art in all its various forms. However, for those who are prudish and or uncomfortable watching lots of nudity, this is...continued

You are warned that there is full nudity (frontal included) and that didn't bother me at all. However I wasn't prepared for the eating s--t (simulated or real). Although there was plenty of potential for humor the actors/writer didn't make much...continued

After buying my ticket, I read several reviews on the theatre website that were mixed but spoke mainly about the nudity and some people even referred to it as pornography. I was prepared for a 2 hour performance of naked people performing lude sex...continued

I was expecting nudity, but not pornography.It was excellent acting though, coming from this Brazilian troupe. Def had shock value to it and brutality bordering on sensuality

No prude here but this was a shocker. I have always been fascinated by the works of Marquis de Sades work but I was not expecting to see live pron at this venue. I now understand why they had a verbal disclaimer moments before the play started but...continued

Bold performances! I love a show where the actors are absolutely willing to throw caution to the wind and take huge risks with their performances. This was certainly the case here. Three of the performers were outstanding- the three lead women....continued

Needed a few more rehearsals, and maybe one or two casting changes, but overall a fine production with terrific lighting and visual effects. The actors did not come out for curtain call, possibly embarrased by a few miscues, but I would have...continued

Although done very enthusiastically the play was very crude and tasteless. I am all for erotic and risque, but this play consisted of in your face sex scenes and overdrawn acting. The only ray of light was a young actor with a very attractive...continued

I enjoyed the play, it was funny in parts but mostly crude what happened is that the actors couldn't really put into stage what the book said. My boyfriend would give it three stars too

It was fun overall! If you are unfamiliar with the area, it can look a bit scary, but there is a bar next door and a restaurant at the corner and there will be people in line waiting with you! Street parking only.
As for the experience: It is a...continued
