Amy in ruckus at theater
Posted 22 December 2009 - 02:12 AM
Definition: Panto (another name for Pantomime in the UK) is a peculiarly British tradition of winter musical comedy theater. It has nothing to do with mime - silent performers in white-face make up walking into glass or doing Marcel Marceau-type physical comedy.
British pantomime takes familiar fairy tales and children's stories - Cinderella, Aladdin, Dick Whittington and His Cat, Snow White - and injects a bit of music hall (British Vaudeville) sensibility, contemporary references and audience participation to create a raucous, noisy entertainment that's fun for everyone in the family.
And apropos of Mickey Rooney, I saw this:
"We all know that panto is the favoured stamping ground (read: reliable payday) for countless British soap stars, pop rejects and reality-TV casualties. But increasingly, American talent is slopping on the slap and hogging the limelight."
At least I learned something out of this incident.

Probably the Sun sprinkled some sugar in the story, but it did happen and it really is not good either way.
