“My ORCHID The Show at Miami Design District Review”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

Orchid The Show was dripping with passion and erotica - a naughty girl's fantasy! Chiseled acrobatic bodies, talented voices, and sexy burlesque costumes will fascinate and arouse.  Needless to say, I wasn't prepared for the narrator reading bible verses at the end... it made me uneasy.  The show indulged and excited me with sex-craze, orgy, topless, provocative scenes for 2 hours then bible verses?? Book of Revelation?? While I appreciated the show's garden of eden storyline, its the bold shift at the end of the narrator reading of bible versus that disturbed my core.  It felt like a "bait and switch", lure one in with sensuality then evoke one's spirituality with biblical verses.  The burlesque and spirituality fusion aren't my idea of a harmonic convergence.  Great performance... questionable biblical undertone.

“Orchid, The show!!!!! at the Miami Design District”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

AMAZING!
Mix Moulin Rouge, Cirque du Soleil, burlesque and add some 80’s, 90’s and current top 40’s music and you have arrived at Orchid The Show. Sensual, sexual, entertaining, sinfully delightful, delicious and a true guilt trip, this is the best show that Miami has seen in a long time. From the inviting setting of the garden to the magical restaurant, you will be tempted to dream about pleasure from beginning to end.

“So much to do and see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

The selection of restaurants and shops to visit is impressive and almost overwhelming. My wife and I enjoyed the walks and the eclectic crowds.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

Most shops are by appointment only. Nice afternoon of window shopping but not much else. There are very few restaurants.

“Variety”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

We stopped into a variety of interior design related stores. The quality and quantity of shops in the area were impressive. Most of the shops are open during typical daytime business hours (like 9-5), so you'll want to keep that in mind if you want to do more than window shopping.
