“…special note must be taken of Closer to Heaven’s ensemble dancers, who, thanks to de los Santos’ spell-binding and dangerous choreography, conspire in a tangle of tortured, precise post-Gen-X devil dolls, to imbue the show with a rapacious carnality.”


“John de los Santos choreography puts this cast through a major workout for two hours. It is very athletic, and used an array of very intricate designs and formations. Visually they were quite exciting to watch as the ensemble danced their hearts out.”
