Dancer Sues Musical Over 'Breast-Related Dismissal'

A dancer has launched a $100 million (GBP58.8 million) lawsuit against the American musical MOVIN' OUT, claiming she was emotionally abused and lost her job because her breasts grew too large for her costume. ALICE ALYSE was a leading performer in the show, which features music composed by BILL JOEL, when she was sacked last month (FEB06) - and she claims she was dismissed because her breasts "became too big" following an injury lay-off. She says, "I was thin, I was a size zero, but my breasts had gotten bigger. When I tried on my costumes they fit everywhere except in the breast area." Legal papers filed in Miami-Dade Circuit Court on Monday (20MAR06) list numerous charges including wrongful termination, breach of contract, defamation, sexual harassment and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Alyse's lawyer LARRY KLAYMAN says, "In the ballet world, obviously, people are small-breasted. On Broadway, what happened should be an attribute."
