|The Abs that started it all...|
But I can't remember a professional review, including those about some of the aforementioned shows, that was so down right smutty and objectifying as the one published in The New York Times for the current revival of Picnic (HERE). As you probably know, the chief theatre critic spends more than half the review describing the torso of one actor (plus a side trip into his exposed nipple) and the legs of another. No names. Just a skeezy, leering description. He eventually gets to a couple of sentences about their acting. Why not waste what little space he's apparently given with an actual review? I guess verbal masturbation sells papers. I miss the days where his smug tone was actually discrete AND about the show.
Of course, I make no qualms about celebrating the bodies beautiful of Broadway. And apparently most of you don't mind, either. Most of my most viewed blogs are more sexy ones - you wouldn't believe the numbers I get for Broadway Bares. So, here's one for you guys! (And thank you to "The Grey Lady' for "legitimizing" it...)
