Challenging Clit Cleavage
There are few things in life more satisfying than a witty tirade against low-rise jeans and the unfortunate consequence of "whale tail". And so after reading Andy Propst's review of Angry Young Women in Low-Rise Jeans With High-Class Issues, we promptly ordered tickets.
Although the play pokes fun at absurd dating rituals and modern sexuality, the first act's rant against dropping waistlines and jeweled thongs pulled our sympathy strings. Entering with an article declaring the end of low-rise jeans (our very own Corina Zappia noted their rumored demise last year), actress Devon Pipars, distressed from years of bad fashion, rants against such styles made popular by Britney Spears-like gals, the current inverse proportions of men and women's underwear, and the brutal Brazilian. Such aesthetic, she laments, results in clit cleavage being in vogue. Pipars pledges to immediately purchase a pair of Jordache jeans. We left the theater praying her decision remains a temporary antidote; high-rises are equally traumatizing.
