Critics Award of the Day (CAD): Charles Isherwood on Sausage Arms

fat-lady.jpgCharles Isherwood (not to be confused with our beloved Christopher) snags his first CADdy for, in a single paragraph, basically nailing the fat lady on the head:

“THE tenor lifts sausage arms skyward, ignoring the soprano as he ardently professes his love to the grand tier. She looks on with a distracted smile, the slight tension in her eyes suggesting not swelling emotion but determination to nail the top note a few bars away. Note secured, applause graciously accepted, her fatal swoon has all the pliant delicacy of a redwood succumbing to a chain saw.”

Ouch.
