"Tricia Brouk lends an irresistible,
maniacal dimension to Turturro’s vision"

The choreography, by Tricia Brouk, lends an irresistible, maniacal dimension to Turturro’s vision, especially in a salsa number complete with firemen in a conga line, clamoring after Kate Winslet’s vampish shopgirl Tula, who entices and eludes them all in her form-fitting engine-red vinyl dress.

There's something odd about “Romance and Cigarettes," a two-year-old movie written and directed by John Turturro. There are moments when it is just brilliant, especially in some off-the-wall sequences when Tricia Brouk shows spectacular choreography, and dancers to match.

 

The New Yorker

Turturro has his actors sing along with the recorded voices, and the effect is surreal and touching- they all appear to be having the time of their lives.  With matching, witty, working-class choreography by Tricia Brouk.

Erotic Broadway is well put together, as are all the arteests.
Ms. Brouk, partially covered by feathered fans and little else, dances homage to Sally Rand. It's sexy, for sure, but respectful of that iconic stripper as well. In another bit, she explores the eroticism of sweet buns (the food, the food). Here, She's fully dressed and even sexier.

 

Broadway After Dark

Think Gypsy Rose Lee in sophistication, together with a little bawdy, a lot of talent and an evening from which you will walk away smiling

Erotic Broadway/Vintage Variety is a sort of high class PG-13 burlesque. It brings a bit of erotica to the main stage, bridging the gap between late night down and dirty burlesque and a daytime squeaky-clean Broadway Show.

In the hands of Tricia Brouk, when Christian Grey and Anastasia Steel meet, they sing, they dance and they spank. Their witty dialogues put together with choreography by Brouk keeps the audience engaged.Only encompassing a part of the book, 50 Shades Of F****d Up achieves what it sets out to do. The catchy lyrics and rhythms and energetic, upbeat choreography present a mockery of the themes presented in the book. But what it also does is provide fans with a theatrical version of the story that entertains with a comic approach.

There are about a dozen full scale production numbers done to classic songs, in virtually every genre from gospel to rock, bolstered by inventive and very amusing choreography by Tricia Brouk.

There's something odd about “Romance and Cigarettes," a two-year-old movie written and directed by John Turturro. There are moments when it is just brilliant, especially in some off-the-wall sequences when Tricia Brouk shows spectacular choreography, and dancers to match, and other times when it sinks below mediocrity, and ends awash in sentimental claptrap.

 

Show Business Weekly

The star-studded cast includes Christopher Walken, Eddie Izzard, Steve Buscemi, Mandy Moore, Mary-Louise Parker, and Elaine Stritch, to name a few, and features dazzling choreography by Tricia Brouk.
