...a group of dancers, portraying members of a family look like they might be right out of Norman Rockwell - except, within minutes of starting the show, the clan suddenly shifts into being something from an Edward Gorey nightmare. Director Janet Roston's choreography is tight, energetic, and extremely sophisticated...the sense of detail in the movement suggests a mood that's both kinky and beguiling.

Sometimes the best performance is the kind that takes time to grow and enfold you in its clutches, but once it has you, you’re in so deep you feel a love slave to it. Such is the case with "The Wanting." It’s a who’s groping on who type of family affair, whose torridness is portrayed entirely through the emotional tone of the music and impeccable choreography by Janet Roston. Roston’s direction of the movement of the bodies, the perverse grasping, grinding and pulling away make this production hard to dislike, ignore or forget. Part concert, part dance, part tale of love, lust, seduction, betrayal and insatiable desire, it is nothing short of a small masterpiece.
