Edward Scissorhands Ballet

Michael Sporn reports back from his viewing of Edward Scissorhands as produced by the Mathew Bourne ballet at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

If you’re out to rework a movie that a lot of people love – and a lot of people love this movie – you’d better top it. That means you have to find an approach that is different than and better than Johnny Depp’s character. Depp IS Edward Scissorhands! In the Bourne production, we had an imitation of the personality Depp created for that film.

Is this what we have to look forward to with every reiteration Pirates Of The Caribbean? A pale imitation of Johnny Depp? I’m afraid so.
