Jabba The Slut Productions proudly presents:

Melodrama, an interpretive dance piece by Fr. Robert VerEecke, Director of the Boston Liturgical Dance Ensemble at Boston College (CFTPO). Let's let Padre describe it for us in his own words:

I just did a dance piece called "Melodrama." I dance it with another dancer, who's Jesus, and I'm a priest. And the first part is my commentary on going to the Gibson "Passion" and looking away most of the time, and trying to figure out why. Then I segue into other images of Jesus we need to see, for example a comic Jesus. Jesus and I go into a duet to "Make 'Em Laugh" from "Singin' in the Rain," doing all this kind of Three Stooges movement, slipping on banana peels, walking into walls. I bring this up because someone who is Catholic and who heard about the piece was very upset, even hearing that I would do something that could possibly be offensive to Catholic sensibilities, whatever that means.

The rest of the article is also "interesting," in the gawking-at-road-accidents sense of the term. In short, it's a sophomore bull-session of over-educated post-Catholics smirking about How They Managed To Outgrow All That, And Good Riddance, Too.

P.S.--Before reading, guess what religious order Fr. VerEecke is from?
