Tommy Tune joined the all-male cast (and one woman!) of dancers and performers on stage at Company XIV’s summer striptease show Boylesque Bullfight at Theatre XIV in Bushwick. After the show he congratulated the “amazing” dancers and raved about the choreography to Company XIV’s Artistic Director and Choreographer Austin McCormick.  “Boylesque Bullfight” plays its final weekend this coming week, but talk is that it will be returning in the Fall because of its great success.

Company XIV, recently presented their acclaimed production of Cinderella, will open their newest production, Boylesque Bullfight at Theater XIV (383 Troutman Street, Bushwick, Brooklyn) on Sunday, June 17th at 8 pm.

Directed and choreographed by Austin McCormick, Boylesque Bullfight, CompanyXIV’s latest show, re-imagens the 1936 classic children’s tale by Munro Leaf as anerotic all-male baroque-burlesque spectacle. Soothe summer’s sizzle with flirtation,opulence and exquisite cocktails from the bar. Roll around the Spanish hillside, then enjoy a bullfight in the XIV ring where our ferocious, fertile matador challenges dear Ferdinand to a duel. Will he rise to the occasion or succumb to the field of flowers?

The cast features Ryan Redmond as Ferdinand, Marcy Richardson as El Matador and Laszlo Major as the Bumble Bee along with Nicholas Katen, Scott Schneider, Benjamin Freedman, Ian Spring, Mark Osmundsen and Jacoby Pruitt.

Creatives include costume and set design by Zane Pihlstrom; lighting design by Jeanette Yew and makeup design by Sarah Cimino.

Austin McCormick created Company XIV in 2006 wowing critics and audiences alike with a unique blend of circus, vaudeville, burlesque, dance, ballet, opera, live musicand lavish design. The company’s productions of Nutcracker Rouge and Cinderellahave become favorites. Austin’s other credits include choreography for theMetropolitan Opera, Chicago Lyric Opera, Canadian Opera Company, The Juilliard School, Guggenheim Works in Progress, Gotham Chamber Opera and the Kennedy Center.

Boylesque Bullfight will play through July 29th. Performance schedule is Fridays at 8 pm; Saturdays at 6 pm and 10 pm and Sundays at 8 pm. Tickets are priced from $55.00 to $260.00. For information and bookings go to www.companyxiv.com
