YOU have to hand it to Richard Winsor, 24 and Sam Archer, 25, the two English dancers who alternate in the title role in Matthew Bourne's "Edward Scissorhands." In the dance-theater re-imagination of Tim Burton's 1990 film "Edward Scissorhands" -- which starred Johnny Depp as Edward -- the two men somehow manage to make dancing with a collection of unwieldy scissor blades standing in for the five fingers of each hand look easy.

THE wonderful photo by Myung J. Chun of the lead dancers in "Edward Scissorhands," Sam Archer and Richard Winsor, is surely the most beautiful thing we'll see all week, regardless of where we look in the paper or elsewhere ["A Sharp Pair of Scissors," by Diane Haithman, Dec. 19]. I'm sure I speak for thousands in telling you we appreciate the L.A. Times photographers. Viewing their work every day is definitely one of the finer things in life. CHERIE ROUSE Loma Linda

Rigid class structures and the fantasies they inspire make for potent melodrama and equally exciting movement theater. From August Strindberg's "Miss Julie" to Jean Genet's "The Maids," intense parables of forbidden love and social revolt have not only become stage classics but also staples of the international ballet repertory.
