PUTTIN’ ON THE RITZ
There are a lot of reasons to love the Nurses Ball, not the least of which is seeing some of the show’s biggest stars doing a different type of performing. And certainly, this year’s event had a lot of talent on display even as one of the biggest stories on the canvas — the um-
brella tale involving Anna and Peter’s connection — came to a head. Unfortunately, that particular story has rubbed a lot of viewers the wrong way. For some, it’s the rewriting of Anna’s history and the perception that, in taking advantage of a drunken Faison, the beloved character became a rapist. For others, it’s the feeling that newbie Peter has taken over the canvas at the expense of other characters and their storylines. Certainly, the show’s recent ratings slip has reflected that
dissatisfaction. We’re hoping that with Peter’s secret having been exposed, viewers will be caught up in the massive fallout and the big stories coming up. (For more on those, turn to our exclusive Summer Preview, page 24!) Meanwhile, we’re already looking forward to next year’s ball… and yes, we’re available to perform!
Peter couldn’t help
