I find this odd - my BBAJ t-shirt tends to attract a lot of comments when I wear it around town. For instance, just this last weekend, I went to go get my hair cut, and I was leaving, the barber did a double-take and asked what it was all about (I personally think that it's a great piece of theater, sad to see what happened to it). Note that I'm fat, so maybe it's the juxtaposition of a skinny guy wearing skinny jeans on a fat guy? Who knows. Not the first time it's happened either. Anyone ever have something similar happen?

Or perhaps it because it might be a provocative title for someone who has never heard of it? I wasn't there, so I don't know. Maybe the reason is much more esoteric like you say.

Someone always makes a comment when I walk around in my Brooklyn shirt. Sadly, I've yet to meet a random person who even realizes that a shirt that says "BKLYN, The Musical" is a shirt from a musical, not a shirt from Brooklyn. And the people who do recognize the shirt for what it is laugh about how bad it was.

Don't blame me. The pretty merch girl upsold me from just buying the cast recording by flirting like a champ. Very comfy shirt, too. Nice graphic on it. Much more useful than my Spelling Bee hat.

I get all kinds of sympathetic "Oh honey!"=type speeches from people when I wear my Avenue Q shirt that says "It Sucks to Be Me!" Even when I explain it's a song in a show people tell me to "cheer up!" This even happened when I worked that show and wore it.

People grimace and one threw a popsicle at me when I wore my "I'd F@#K Me" T-shirt from Silence! No one understands theatre.

BBAJ == Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson. Easier to type than full title, and I'm assuming you're not a troll - though the person that truly misinformed you certainly is

Did your barber really do a double take?

Back in high school, my best gal pal saw WOMAN OF THE YEAR and brought me back the show tee shirt as a gift. Don't think she realized that it would be somewhat awkward for me to wear anticipating comments from people. I'm male.

Yeah, and I should note that she's a woman.

That would involve a spit take, not a double take

I only wear my Sweeney Todd revival tee around halloween as it usually gets double takes.

There are very few actors who can manage a genuinely funny spit take. I doubt that a barber, even a lady barber, could do it.

Anyone can spit, but it take a skilled comedian to do a double take, a triple take or a spit take.

I guess I don't know what was so wrong with my answer? If someone didn't know the show and saw a shirt that read Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, is it so odd they'd ask about it?

I'm still unclear on the skinny jeans part.

My sister was wearing a fitted babydoll tee from WICKED that said "Defy Gravity". An elderly woman approached her and said. "I like your shirt. Mine used to." No lie. It was hysterical.
