"Worth considerably more than the paltry $20 admission fee it demands, the neo-burlesque show Revealed offers up a substantial helping of coquetry, comedy and camp, along with other, pinker, softer words beginning with the letter C." -Anna King, New York Press

"Yes, there's full nudity, and I for one approve, but the best part of the fun is in the gaudy creativity on display." Jon Sobel, Blogcritics Magazine

"An ideal date night for the decadent." -Not For Tourists Guide

"You can't go wrong at Revealed if you're looking for a night of escapist fun and classic entertainment. And you can drink in the theater. Doesn't get much better than that." -Larry Litt, New York Theatre Wire
