Directed and choreographed by Arthur Pita, it is chic, well made and impressive "
Scene to scene, Mr. Pita’s direction is sure-handed and clear "
So many of the ingredients are high grade. Mr. Whiteside is a gorgeous dancer with more than enough star power to carry a show. He gives this one his all (and bares it all, too). As the previous tenant, his Ballet Theater colleague Cassandra Trenary is gutsy and explosive, beautiful and touching even when trying to do herself in. Kibrea Carmichael, as a woman Mr. Whiteside brings home for some acrobatic sex, is exceptionally striking. "
The New York Times
The Tenant" is a revelation for many reasons: the talented dancers, the impeccable choreography, the chilling original score "
