This is a good silly idea;FAT dancers. There is already the Jumbotanz comapny of BIG dancers that performs only to "special" connoisseurs audiences, and for which the rest of us can't even buy tickets. I have read about their productyion of "Frankensteiniana" and some other work for which they added apparently randomly chosen drugged homeless folk who awakened on stage amidst the swirling flesh and jiggling spirits of the jolly jumbo jiants who did things. The lady in #345 here in the home tells me she used to run a ballet company, and that everyone thinks she is dead. She could be right.

There is a plan at defens to force affghanz to watch nutcrackers performed in sequence from small ballet companies using reel to reel tape and pull-up trees. This will cause them to dump religion and dress rigt and tight. Is there a movie od the franekenstine thing?
