There "should" not be any color Glinda.
The role should be based on other things and if a girl is talented over others they can slightly look past certain traits.

Black girls have different personalities besides the stereotypical sassy black girl stereotype that is portrayed on tv, theater and film.
There are black girls obsessed with pink and finding a hot boyfriend. There are black girls who speak like glinda speaks. There are black girls who have blonde hair. Black g

I just don't think a black Glinda is the best option, as the whole point of the story is that she portrays the typical privileged sorority girl, who has never experienced anything butadoration,completely contrasting with the colored Elphaba. This contrast is the basis of their bond. One is colored and one is not. Glinda makes remarks about Elphaba's color and the whole st
At On the Town we had a mother drag her preteen daughters out midshow after Chip and Ozzy came out in their underwear during "I Can Cook Too," muttering that it was "so inappropriate." Another night, a large Catholic school group left after the same scene.

Why is kneeling during the anthem to protest the inequalities Black people face in this country/police brutality an issue for you? How is it “creating” a racial divide that’s already been there? You are so obtuse and delusional, at this point I think you’re trolling. There has NEVER been equality in this country where heterosexual white men put their well-being above everyone and everything else.
It'll become a double standard when the playing field in film, television, and theatre is level. It's not. They didn't have to write a brand new role just so they could cast a white actor in it. It seems like anytime people of color have a chance to feel 100% represented in telling their stories, white people still have to find a way to make sure they're included as well, when we still have to fight for it to be the other way around.
It has PLENTY to do with your racist, because you have the
And you think people of color haven't tried any of that? Having "conversations" with their oppressors, marching, protesting, sitting, rioting, boycotting, etc.? The problem is, none of these white supremecists are willing to listen and have no intention of changing their minds.
Since we're on the subject of Great Comet, maybe if the playing field within the theatre-industry (any business where it's
Why is it interesting? First time two African American leads in a musical that was not an African American Story/cast, taking the role over from someone that is not of color... both things are pretty significant.

So I can complain about it and blame every movie or show or get over myself."
