It’s a who’s groping on who type of family affair, whose torridness is portrayed entirely through the emotional tone of the music and impeccable choreography by Janet Roston. Part concert, part dance, part tale of love, lust, seduction, betrayal and insatiable desire, it is nothing short of a small masterpiece.
