the myth of american exceptionalism

anonymous asked:

i could go on for years about it but god i am so sick of hearing how great h@milton is when it's a mediocre play that challenges absolutely nothing about the myth of american exceptionalism and plays directly into the comfort zones of the rich who control its survival. it's bourgeoisie theater hardly anything about it is revolutionary and the numbers in it i've heard are boring and awkward at best.

What pisses me off is that people praise it as being revolutionary when it’s the same story of white heroism even with a cast involving people of colour…. like we get it. White characters are amazing. Let’s get a new concept going.
