NEW YORK TIMES- Neil Gezlinger

The show looks at times like an adults-only Cirque du Soleil extravaganza, with trapeze acts and other athletic displays.”

EDGE BOSTON- Steve Weinstein

Maffey makes the set pieces by Orian Griffiths [the hand balancer from the Tony-award winning show, Pippin] (…) look like child’s play. Maffey balances beautifully to the music, often on one hand, in poses that look impossible, and by all rights should be. For me, it was easily the height of the evening.”

BROADWAY WORLD-Michael Dale

“Austin McCormick’s (…) production of Nutcracker Rouge riffs on a holiday favorite with a sumptuously sensual blend of erotic dance, jazzy vocals and stunning baroque fashions filtered through a neo-burlesque sensibility. . . . Highlighted acts include circus performer Nicolas Maffey, whose beautiful muscles balance his body from the floor and maneuver him through a hoop in the air.”

THE EXAMINER- Mark Thompson

Arguable Tchaikovsky’s most famous score, The Nutcracker has inspired numerous revisions (….) but none of these previous incarnations of The Nutcracker feature a Turkish Delight (the captivating aerialist Nicolas Maffey) wearing little more than a glittering g-string who balances on one hand while seducing Marie-Claire.”

NEW YORK THEATER REVIEW- Ryan Hudak

Nicolas Maffey and Courtney Giannone also stand out, Maffey due to an impressive trapeze solo and Giannone with a hood dance that seems impossible to execute.”

THE CRIMSON- Alan Xie

Nicolas Maffey ’13 has the unique distinction of being one of the only professionally trained circus artists on campus. Maffey, along with a band consisting of singer Patrick J. Wicker ’13, guitarist Kelly S. Robinson ’13, drummer Corey N. Rosenberg ’13, and violinist Kathy Ran ’13, compose the Ethereals.”
