"This didn't feel, however, like an opening night. Jenifer Ringer, as the Sugar Plum Fairy, looked as if she'd eaten one sugar plum too many..." - New York Times chief dance critic Alastair Macaulay in his review of the New York City Ballet's performance of The Nutcracker. That's cool. Because ballet dancers never have body image issues, and, plus, as you can see in her picture here, Jenifer Ringer is a revolting heifer who deserves to have her weight criticized in a national newspaper. Oh wait -- did I mention that Jenifer has admitted to struggling with anorexia and bulimia? Oh yeah. Macaulay's review should help. I think it's time to retire, Alistair. I'm sure there's an assisted living community somewhere that specializes in housing insensitive assholes.
In the meantime, if you want to tell Mr. Macaulay how you feel about his "review," you can do so here.
