LA Theater Review

8 Piece Legs and Thighs

  • Share:

Choreographer Beth Megill and her dancers—Geneva DePalma, Erin Riddle, Karissa Smith, and Elyse Villa—take lighthearted aim at current obsessions with sexuality, weight loss, and objectification of women. They embrace a variety of styles—including modern, jazz, tap, and jazzercise, and utilizing an exercise ball, ThighMaster, and hula hoop. Megill plays a naive high school girl plagued by the demands made by Cosmopolitan magazine, peer pressure, and advertising, and a weight-loss dance class begins with disappointing results at the weighing-in and ends in an orgy of backsliding and ice cream. The tap number generated strongest audience approval.

Megill & Company at The Complex, 6476 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood. Thu., June 9, 9:30 p.m.; Thu., June 16, 9:45 p.m.; Fri., June 17, 9:45 p.m.; Thu., June 23, 9:45 p.m.; Fri., June 24, 9:45 p.m.; Sat., June 24, 9:45 p.m.
