ABSINTHE OFF-BROADWAY REVIEWS
Opening Night: December 31, 1969
NY DAILY NEWS
Synopsis: Absinthe, the number one NYC summer event since 2006, will once again take New York by storm with a brand new line up of talent from the seediest and sexiest cabaret dens of the world.
NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
"Yes, there’s an R-rated stripper and a foul-mouthed M.C. with a lumpy stuffed crotch. But for all its lip service to decadence, “Absinthe,” the naughty circus-meets-burlesque show in the Spiegeltent at Pier 17, succeeds best at its most innocent."
"If you can't get enough of the gymnastics from Beijing, there are awesome acrobats bending and balancing at the Seaport sporting racy getups that would be sure to raise howls from the U.S. Olympic Committee.
"It won’t matter if the subway doors close on you as you’re trying to board the 6 train and an air conditioner drips liberally on your head from the fourth floor of an apartment as you walk down Broadway moments before a taxi blares it’s horn and speeds past you while you have the walk signal; the experience of going to a show like Absinthe reminds you just how much you love living in New York City."
"It’s often said that summer belongs to the young. And after this year’s incarnation of Absinthe, the European cabaret circus returning for its third year to a Spiegeltent at the South Street Seaport, it’s going to be hard to disagree. "
"There may be some nifty roller-skating going on at Xanadu and some sensual stripping over at Gypsy, but the acts in the quasi vaudeville-circus Absinthe makes those feats -- and pretty much all else in New York -- more than pale by comparison. This ultra-eclectic show has returned to the beautiful Spiegeltent -- an authentic glass-and-wood performance space temporarily ensconced at the South Street Seaport -- and even if this year's edition isn't quite as successful as the first one, it still provides 100 minutes worth of often-dynamic entertainment. "
