Having read the book, I can tell you that this is definitely not true.
I think it's worth actually reading the change.org text, which focuses mostly on what the petition writer views as queer black men being disrespectful to black women. This is what the petition itself reads:
This past Saturday I attended Slave Play for the 8pm showing. I wanted to verbalize that this was one of the most disrespectful displays of anti-Black sentiment disguised as art that I have ever seen. As a Black woman I was terribly offended and traumatized by the graph
Was there tonight and I thought it was terrific. The spoken dialogue needs some work, but the chamber opera part of it is excellent with dazzlingly complex and haunting music and an equivocally powerful story. Lee Sunday Evans did terrific work, particularly with the visual aesthetic.
Christian theming in musical theatre is really making quite the comeback.
Best Versions of Chekhov? May 10

Paul Schmidt’s translations are generally considered to be the academic standard. Personally, I also enjoy Annie Baker’s Uncle Vanya and Tom Stoppard’s Cherry Orchard, but there are many playable and readable versions of all five (and a half) of his plays.
If you’re new to Chekhov, look for one of the approx. 5000 adaptations of The Seagull as it is easily his most accessible, though the very best thing is to see a Chekhov production first.
To offer a contrary opinion for those interested in this production, I thought it was rather terrific and I found the play to be a bit of an under-appreciated masterwork. It's brutal and very poetic (read: not at all naturalistic) but it's also sweepingly epic and very affecting (and this is coming from someone who is not generally a Shepard fan).
Learning from Lear and Three Tall Women it is patently obvious to me that while Jackson is a good dramatic actor, she really has a knack for comedy. That being said, I think The Visit would be terrific for her.
Anybody seen this yet? Lord knows I'm no Christopher Chen fan but the premise for this looked intriguing enough. Curious to see if SOHO Rep really whiffed it with this season (after that dreadful messÂ Thunderbodies).
I'm getting on inyears, and so it's increasingly effortfulfor me to post. I did write effusively about I Married an Angel a few weeks ago. I don't know if you got to see those comments.
I only offered my comments about Octet as a balance to the first ones presented. I felt people needed to have another point of view on the matter.If the first comments had not been given, I would simply have not commented at all, as I h
‘Kiss Me, Kate,” Cole Porter’s ingenious 1948 transformation of “The Taming of the Shrew” into a backstage musical, is back on Broadway for the first time in more than 17 years. The Roundabout Theater Company has reunited the production team behind its 2016 revival of “She Loves Me” for a big-budget version directed by Scott Ellis and choreographed by Warren Carlyle whose cast is headed by Kelli O’Hara and Will Chas
