Christmas At The Ballet – A Holiday Mini Dialog
(In the soloist’s dressing room)
HER – Happy Holidays to you too – I think you oughta put down that gingerbread and think about disciplining yourself a little. You’re not getting any younger you know and actually, to be honest, I thought you looked kinda “chunky” in last night’s performance.
YOU -( a look of total dis-belief as you rush to drop the gingerbread into the toilet – flush )
HER – I’m not saying you are fat! I’m saying you looked heavier last night. You appeared to be heavier to me. That’s all. That’s all I’m saying.
You – ( shock and disbelief turn to tears in the mirror as you survey your rear mid-body area ) Could it have been the lighting?
HER – Actually I don’t think it’s the lights babe because they haven’t changed the lighting for that ballet in fifty years – OK? Look, you know what to do – you do what we’ve all done – come on, stop crying – we’ve all done it babe. A professional dancer sometimes needs to drop a few pounds fast. Period. That’s all I’m saying. You do it it for the company. (pause) Do you want me to call Raul and get you a couple grams of helper? Huh? look, let’s start with what I have now and we can walk over and see the windows at Bergdorf’s on the way to Raul’s. Come on tubby… Kidding! Kidding! Jesus! you’ll be a light bulb en pointe by next week so relax! Now let’s go.
