    A Circus, Yes, but Emphatically Not for Children of All Ages

    RACHEL SALTZ

    August 18, 2008: 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.

    'Absinthe' & 'Desir': Acrobatics with raunchy twists

    Joe Dziemianowicz

    August 18, 2008: 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.

    ABSINTHE REVIEW

    Rebecca Lewis-Whitson

    September 7, 2008: 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.

    Absinthe Theatre Review

    Matthew Murray

    August 10, 2008: 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.

    Absinthe / La Vie

    : Brian Scott Lipton and Dan Bacalzo

    March 17, 2010: 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.
