The Fabulous Life of a Size Zero Makes Us Feel Underachieving, Worthless, and Fat
And we're nearly certain that's the intent

If you’ve been hanging around this website long enough, you’ll know that we’ve teamed up with The Fabulous Life of a Size Zero, a new play about a high school senior lass who “shrinks to a size zero and descends into a filthy/gorgeous world of booze, beauty and boyfriends all while attempting to get into the Ivy League school of her choice.” Story of your life, isn’t it?

Lucky you, then: Size Zero kicked off its run with an official debut last night at Union Square’s DR2 Theatre (103 E. 15th St.). We attended, and although we’re a biased party on the matter, we quite enjoyed. Sure, jokes about bulimia, blowjobs, and boys tend to write themselves, but how often do you get to see the My Girl girl all grown up and delivering them?

The gays will like it, the girls will love it, and the straight boys will want to go backstage.
