Review of Flesh and Bone

60 minutes

Created/executive produced by Moira Walley-Beckett (Breaking Bad) and executive produced by Lawrence Bender, Kevin Brown and John Melfi, Flesh And Bone is described as a dark and gritty drama that unflinchingly explores the dysfunction and glamour of the ballet world and follows a young ballet dancer, Claire (Sarah Hay), who has a distinctly troubled past, as she joins a prestigious ballet company in New York.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

The ballet world portrays near perfection for the public each performance. The sweat, blood and tears involved in achieving this is legendary. Flesh and Bone airs the dirty linen of all of the members of the fictional American Ballet Company for everyone to see. Using actual top-notch ballet dancers in the roles takes this new show to a new level. It is gritty, technically beautiful, morally suspect and heart-rending. The characters are all flawed and somewhat unlikeable, yet they are so human as to appeal to us on a primal level. I am in awe of the writers, performers, directors, hell everyone involved in this amazing show. It is addictive and I'm thoroughly hooked.
