Company XIV – Nutcracker Rouge – New York

★★★★✰   Nutcracker Rouge is a lush, flesh-fueled frenzy of sensuality and spectacle. McCormick’s gift for erotic elegance is mesmerizing. Any raunch manages to be a good dose of the subversive while also being good plain fun.

★★★✰✰ “But it turns out that the pleasures of excess are really not enough to hold one’s interest if the underlying material is thin.”
