To the editors:

Laura Molzahn's busy-busy, over-stuffed reviews of dance events in the Reader are hardly perceptive. Her "hasn't worn well" judgement of the Joffrey Ballet's Trinity [March 23], which large audiences cheered recently in the Auditorium, is hardly correct. So she didn't like it, because she is myopic about dance other than the pretentious ego-trips presented to the minuscule audiences at MoMing.

And how about her quoting in her review the 1971 opinion of another reviewer, one notoriously anti-any dance not by Balanchine. By quoting does Molzahn think she impresses the readers that she is knowledgeable? She only proves she is unsure of herself. The Reader's readers deserve better.
