- You, A fool: The Great Comet's producers switched Oak with Mandy because they are racist assholes, who can't see real talent, and because of that I will not support the show.
- Me, not a fool: The Great Comet's producers did not think about race in this situation at all, they thought about money and keeping the show alive, ya know what they need to think about. I do agree that they could've explained it better but they announced it to the public like they did when Brittain was switched with Ingrid Michaelson. It was the public eye that made this whole thing into a big deal AND Oak I love the guy I really do but he could've and should've handled the whole situation like a professional. Great Comet is a great show and no matter how bad this whole thing looks you should support the show. please. Just think of how many amazing actors will be out of a job. Lucas Steele, Denée Benton, Gelesy Bell, and so many other magnificent actors. Please support the show. please please please please. this show deserves way more that want it has been given. I love the other shows but this one holds a special place in my heart. It was my first broadway show I ever saw and I felt such a connection to every person in the audience and every actor and,,, sorry im rambling and I don't really have much to say other than support this show please please please, spread the word to every inch of the broadway community, buy tickets! it's actually pretty cheap compared to everything else. BUY MERCH!!! A very easy way to help them just do whatever you can.
what musical that has opened or is opening this season are you most excited for?
