    Sorry to hear that. I remember looking at it when it was still available. i recall that Suzanne looked a little old for him, even at a distance, but it was still a beautiful performance.
  20. We may not be able to "do anything about it" but we can express concern. As Jayne notes above, people can experience health problems from drastic weight loss even if it is only temporary. Johnsey will presumably have to maintain his current weight for the foreseeable future to have any hopes of a job, regardless of how his short-term contract ends, since he will be competing against highly qualified women for a small number of opportunities. He has already undergone surgery to look more feminine. Ballet is a much more competitive field for women than for men, as Wendy Whelan noted when asked to opine on Johnsey's situation. As mentioned earlier, he is said to be enjoying the attentions of a nutritionist, which is good. I hope this continues and I hope the nutritionist is offering sound advice.
  21. Well......I said I thought Lane was wrong for the part, an opinion which is consistent with Lane a) being a good actor outside of comedy --straight or musical, a view with which I agree, and b) his performance being the best thing in the current production, an assertion which I'm sure could well be correct. :)
