Ontario Arts Review
The choreographic elements by Jeff Dimitriou are spectacular. Split-second timed and intricately acrobatic... Got a feeling this effort might be the top of our TOP TEN...”
The choreography by Jeff Dimitriou left nothing wanting – and that is a huge statement considering the task at hand. Dimitriou had the use of only a very bare stage and a few chairs to build an entire atmosphere using movement. The sexy flexes and overall creative design had the right amount of flourish to bring the Kit Kat Club to life, and I was drawn completely into his world. It was stunning, dark and fabulous.

If a diversion was needed, I would have much preferred another number by the show’s foxy and talented dancers, choreographed with real period zing by Jeff Dimitriou.
