yeah, i got harassed for this months back and fandomhatesblaclpeople legit spread some bs about how I wasn’t actually black

Girl, I’m sorry for that foolishness. This blue hellsite has me sitting back and just shaking my head in disbelief. It’s a damn broadway musical. We’re harassing OUR OWN over enjoying a musical?!?!? demanding apologies and renunciations??!?!? when it’s white people turning it into something problematic on this here sorry excuse for a social platform!??! Like…what part of the game is that? 

“He’s an actor on Broadway.  I broke up with him in December because he couldn’t manage his anger.  He’d scream at me on subway platforms.  Once he busted my lip while trying to grab something out of my hand.  That was when I finally ended it.  But he called me on New Year’s Eve and asked if he could go to a party with me.  We’d bought our tickets months earlier.  They were expensive so I agreed.  My sister was coming with us so I wasn’t worried.  Everyone had a great time.  …At the end of the night, we dropped off my sister and went back to his place.  I was so drunk that I curled up in a pile of clothes.  When I opened my eyes he was taking photos of me and laughing.  I immediately decided to leave.  It was literally the start of a new year and I wanted to begin on a good note.  He yelled at me to come back but I kept walking.  He followed me down the stairs and grabbed my arm.  He told me to ‘stop acting stupid.’  Then he pinned me up against the side of his building.  He was choking me and saying ‘calm down, calm down, calm down.’  A van drove by and started honking at us.  But they didn’t stop.  They didn’t help me.  I broke free and ran into traffic but nobody was stopping.  He caught me, and pushed me up against a van, and lifted me into the air by the neck.  When I woke up on the ground he was gone.  I asked the judge to sentence him to anger management courses.  He’s finished them.  But I’m still dealing with the trauma of that night.”

The Next Generation of American Theater Is Here

Denée Benton, 25, plays a lovelorn Russian aristocrat in the War and Peace–inspired musical Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812. The show’s color-blind casting is fast becoming a hallmark of the Hamilton age. “It’s telling a universal story of love and loss and war and regret,” Benton says, “and I think because of that you can put any person of any shade in it.”

Eva Noblezada is only 21, yet she has already played Eponine in Les Misérables in London and now brings her clarion singing voice to the Broadway Theatre’s Miss Saigon. “I’ve learned how necessary it is to have someone like Denée expose the hidden talents of minority performers,” says Noblezada, who is of Filipino and Mexican descent. “We work our asses off to be seen on the same level as everyone else.”

Barrett Doss was all set to become a San Francisco cheese­monger six years ago, after a series of fruitless auditions. Then Thomas Bradshaw—in whose 2007 one-act Cleansed she had played a fourteen-year-old biracial skinhead—cast her in his play Burning. Now, at 28, she is making her Broadway-musical debut as Rita (played onscreen by Andie MacDowell) in the stage adaptation of Groundhog Day.

Laura Dreyfuss With heartbreaking tenderness, Dreyfuss, 28, plays a soulful high school student struggling in a relationship with the anxiety-ridden class geek (Ben Platt) in the musical Dear Evan Hansen. She has appeared on Broadway in Hair and Once and is best known as Madison McCarthy on Glee. “Glee and Evan Hansen are fundamentally the same idea: ‘Where do I belong?’ ” she says.
